    Everything about it.
    Even the lack of mall traffic since the mall is dying around my area. About 10 years ago, the mall was PACKED. I miss those days.

    I love the crafts together, all the wonderful food, the heartwarming and funny movies, and the magic in the air, and all the wonderful traditions. My daughter is 5 this year, so she's enjoying Peak Childhood Christmas and I am enjoying it right alongside her.

    I love:
    The excited feeling in the air
    Decorating
    writing out Christmas cards
    wrapping presents
    the smell of fresh baked pumpkin bread in the house
    visiting with family and friends
    seeing the Nutcracker ballet with my husband

    But by far my favorite is our Christmas traditions. I know everyone has different traditions (and I love to read about all of them) but I have some traditions with different people that I wouldn't trade for the world. They may seem simple, but they make my holiday season. As I grow older and we lose people in our lives and some traditions have to be adjusted to accommodate those losses I begin to realize how precious they really are and to enjoy every moment of them as much as I can.
