What is it exactly about Christmas you like so much!
This was the question asked by my wife to me the other day !!! You would have thought she asked me how to cure world hunger or something. All I could muster on the spot was "everything" now my family knows I'm a Christmas nut but I've never been asked exactly why before. I'm not even sure I could put in one sentence . Can you ?

This one is easy for me. The music! Other than perhaps Halloween, no other holiday comes close to the amount of associated tunes. The, in my humble opinion, worn out Top 100 Christmas tunes just don’t do the genre justice.

The colors of Christmas would be a distant second.
Having been a member of various Christmas forums for nine years now, I’ve realized that my overall interest in Christmas really isn’t as intense as others. Without the music, I’m not even sure I would be all that interested in Christmas.

When I think about Christmas, I immediately think of Christmas Eve & all the excitement associated with it when I was a child. Gathering with family around the kitchen table to eat dinner before opening gifts. The kids were so excited we couldn't eat, but we still had to wait on the adults before opening gifts. One year my brother snuck away from the table & peeked into one of his gifts!
Even now, as a 40-year-old, I still get excited on Christmas Eve. I spend the morning preparing for Santa's arrival (hoping that this isn't my last year for that with our 8-year-old DD...) & spend the evening with DH & DD, making cookies or cupcakes for Santa, watching It's a Wonderful Life, then helping Santa deliver the gifts before collapsing into bed at midnight. I think I should go to bed earlier so I'm not so tired on Christmas night!
Other things that I love about Christmas:
-Childhood memories of Christmas programs at church. The smell of a freshly snuffed candle takes me back there.
-Songs. Silver Bells & Joy to the World have special childhood memories attached to them.
-Smells. Cinnamon does it for me. DD has two cinnamon scented pinecones in her room right now & when I pass by I get a whiff of Christmas!
Six months from today, I'll be preparing our home for Santa's visit, whether or not DD still believes or not!
