Hmmm. Tough one! I love threads like these, it's so fun to read what everyone loves about Christmas!
1. Turning on the Radio and realizing that 106.7 is 24/7 Christmas music!
It's sort of like, i know I
start the season the day after Halloween, but since the radio does now too, i'm not crazy! Lol.
2. Gingerbread Houses!
My mom and I always decorate one. And we always go over the top! Last year was our largest one EVER! If we didn't use the dining room table for Christmas Dinner, you know we would use that! If you haven't checked out my Gingerbread house thread
, you can find a picture of last years house!
I love cooking, and so does everyone else in my family, so you can bet thats one of our favorite things about the holidays! And even though my Brother-In-Law is an actual Baker at Market Street, I'm numero uno Baker in my house!
4. Seeing My Nephew's Eyes Light Up.
I'm the baby of the family, so I never had anyone younger than me as a baby brother/sister. But ever since he was born (all american, blonde haired, blue eyed) I've loved him deeply - And, i used to be his favorite person in his world. Except i've been up-ed by my older brother, because now that he lives in Ohio, he never see's his uncle, so, guess who's favorite now? - and It's still such a joy to see his eyes glow up when he opens a really cool gift. (last year it was his first bike, from Santa... or His Grandma and Papa... I can't remember)
5. Christmas Movies.
I may listen to Christmas songs all year, but the Christmas movies are boxed up with the decorations, so I don't get them until the day after Thanksgiving. So watching my favorites is something I live for. Plus, from the day that i start seeing programs on the tv, my Tivo is filled up with Christmas themed things!
6. Writing to Santa.
Of course i still do!
Sorry for the essay! But i just love
the holiday spirit!
