I'm sure if this exact question hasn't already been asked, it's been asked in a hundred other ways... But this was asked today in a Christmas group & it has generated a lot of very cool responses, so....
What December activities do you all look forward too?
Here was my answer:
I look forward to Christmas shopping w/
my friend - we have been shopping together the 1st Friday of December
for 20 years (this is the 20th year) This year we are going on Nov.
30th, but...close enough to December!
We have a ball - & I am not a
shopper! We start at 8 AM & we usually don't get home until 1:30 AM!!
I look forward to our lake neighbors Christmas party. We only see our
lake neighbors in the summer, but they have included us in their annual
Christmas party, which is the 1st Friday in December. We make the trip
to their place & we get to see everybody again. It's a great time.
I also look forward to candy making day. My 3 sisters, my Mom, my
sister in law & I get together at my Moms the 1st Tuesday in December &
make candy. We all make a different candy (or a couple different kinds)
& then we divide it all up & take it home to give away to neighbors,
friends, etc. (and to eat of course) WOW! Does my Mom & Dads house
The Christmas movies/specials on tv! I love turning on the tv & there
is almost always a Christmas show playing 24/7 on some channel!! And
listening to Christmas music! I love it! Actually, I start listening to that in
about October! But I love Christmas music playing on the radio!
I look forward to going to the "Enchanted Village." Our local hardware
store turns their garden center into a Christmas Wonderland! I can't
Burning Christmas candles!! All the scents & smells of Chrismtas. And
drinking holiday flavored coffee's! Mmmmmmmm
Going Christmas caroling! Fa la la la la, la la la la!!!
I would say putting up my tree, but I put that up the day after
Thanksgiving. But I look forward to sitting in the tv room at night w/
all the lights off except for the tree, Christmas candles burning, &
watching a Christmas movie on tv - or listening to Christmas music.
Driving around town at night looking at all the lights and decorations!
And just the feeling in the air around Christmas - "peace on earth
goodwill toward men"
And my most favorite day/night of the year...Christmas Eve at my
See - I could keep going on & on!! Lol!! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!
