I am still not into it as much as she is, but I love to watch her, she is like a little girl, and that's all I need, that's why I don't mind doing all the stuff she wants to do.
Thanks sweetie! You make the holidays fun too!

I agree with everyone...it's the whole darn thing and I start getting that vibe in fall and it gets better and better. Sometimes by Christmas Day, I'm like a little kid who's had way too much fun and I need a "time out"! But, by the next day, I'm thinking about my decorations for the next year and what Christmas classic I can watch that evening!

I LOVE the Christmas Season. It's such a busy time, but I enjoy getting ready for the holidays so much, whether it's shppping baking, sending out christmas cards, and of course, we can't forget, watching christmas movies, or listening to christmas music.

The season. In fact, I've come to realize that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it starts the "Christmas Season."

For me, by the time Christmas Day gets here, it's kind of sad because the most wonderful season of the year is almost over.

Definately the season!!! From Christmas in July, to buying the 1st present, to making peanut brittle in July, reading posts here all year long, watching Christmas movies when it's too stinkin hot to go outside, the excitement of decorating for Halloween b/c I know Thanksgiving & Christmas (the holiday season) are next, (I put up clear & orange lights in the house for halloween - I just love seeing lights in the house again...makes me excited for Christmas decorating) football season which leads into the holiday season, the cooking & baking & visiting, friends & famly coming "home for the holidays", the shopping, holiday flavored coffee, decorating, going to see Christmas shows/performances, the Christmas music, all the snacking (cheeseball & crackers, meat & cheese, dips, etc.) when you go to visit friends or they come to our house, (I'm a snacker...lol) the Christmas specials/movies on tv, caroling, bundling up & going for a walk when it's snowing to look at lights in the neighborhood - ALL OF IT!!!

I have been saying the same thing for quite sometime. I now realize that Thanksgiving is my favorite day of the year. I actually have my tree up on Thanksgiving day when company comes over. No one seems to mind the tree up. I do have a few Thanksgiving decorations up along with the Christmas ones. It feels like Christmas to me and it's just the beginning!
