Merry Christmas from Nintendo Life

For many gamers, Nintendo is as big a part of Christmas as tinsel, turkey and too-tight trousers, the company's magic helping to make the festive season just a little more joyful.

With that in mind, we want to hear from you, our beloved Nintendo Life readers, about your favourite Nintendo Christmas memories. Perhaps it was the time you received an NES as a surprise gift, or teaming up with your tipsy parents to dish out some pain in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. We especially want to hear from you if you're this guy.

Whatever your Nintendo-related memories of Christmas, we want to hear them in the comments below.
