I guess the music is a big thing for me. Nothing to get me in the christmas mood like a church choir singing some carols! (feel like putting a CD on now!)

And with my site I love answering questions about why we do the stuff that we do at Christmas (and finding out about more things!). I also love studying the Christmas story - the real reason for christmas.

There is a Magic in the air. I guess most would call it the Christmas spirit. It just seems magical to me.

having my friends up on christmas eve night for a wee drink and some food
and after they are gone, sitting just thinking how nice it all is and how lucky i am
it usually cold there in northern ireland so a big fire is usually lit, tree lit and a mug of drinking cholocate with baby mallows on top mmmm
watching peoples faces as they look at the lights out side
dressing upi as santa and mrs clause(my mate and me do this on christmas eve and go round the estate early

I enjoy shopping for my son, decorating (my house looks like I set off a christmas bomb,stuff everywhere!), the warm fuzzy feeling I get when I look at the tree lights, reading The Night Before Christmas to my little man, cooking and baking, spending time with our family, watching The Polar Express for the 100th time....I love all the little things about the season!

Christmas Tree

The christmas parade, the lights, the craft fair, all the new decorations that ur tempted to buy, the christmas trees with their piney smells, the christmas list that everybody makes.

I'm going to have to agree with CAH; I like everything. Even standing in line at the store (it isn't Christmas yet if you haven't stood in line at the store). But I think my favorite things about Christmas are the decorations and the music. Love the music!
