I love Christmas!!

I just love the holiday season.  Others may decry it but for me it is the highlight of the year.  

My boys are older now, and some of the excitement has faded.  No more pressure to get a Christmas tree the day after Halloween, no more taking long cuts in department stores to avoid the toy section, no more school nativity plays and Christmas concerts and bake outs for class parties, no more watching the 25 days of Christmas on TBS every year  (Ok maybe I still do this).   But the Magic is still there.  

I love the way the entire town and neighbourhoods come to life with decorations and colour.  The bustle of people as they go about readying their homes for the holiday, the excitement of kids with their dreams and expectations of Christmas morning,  the family get-togethers to share moments and exchange gifts, the parties, events and  entire atmosphere.    

Most of all, I love the change that people tend to undergo this time of the year.   Almost everyone seems happier, friendlier and more social.  

What are your favorite things about the holiday season?

    • Venus...it is so good to hear someone write about how they love Christmas!  It seems the past few years that many have talked about how they dreaded it or felt depressed about it...etc.  I’m sure with our horrible economic times that it is not as exciting as it may have once been.  But with that said...I still think that even if things are tight you can still celebrate this time of year if you really want to.  It’s still all a choice.  I feel that if things are not going great for you that when you choose to let it damper your holiday..you‘re letting what is not going your way...take over.  Does that make sense?  

      Anyway...I too love Christmas..and Thanksgiving too.  I like to see the transformations in our neighborhoods and communities.  For me when I concentrate on others and doing things for others...it makes my season all the more delightful.  

      My favorite things about Christmas is celebrating my Savior’s birth...acknowledging what the season is really about.  Spending time with family and good friends. Decorating my house and making special gifts for those special friends.  

      Thanks for your blog....happy

    • Christmas is my favorite time of year also.  I just love the feeling that comes with the hustle and bustle of shopping; although I never have enough time.  My hubby and I take a couple of nights and just drive around and look at all the lights and relax, it is sooo much fun.
      Venus_7000...I agree that people seem friendlier too. I am still like a kid on Christmas morning, up early and ready to share the day with hubby and family.estatic

    • I love Christmas now but for years working in retail it just meant hard work and it went on so long so by the time Christmas day came I was shattered and then back to work the next day as it was big sale markdowns .....
      Now I think I get my act together around the 15th and enjoy a whole two weeks off – I love it with small children and thier delight at opening presents and they whole wonder of Santa and the magic.
