I love thanksgiving, it is about getting together with family and having a good meal. I like it better than Christmas because it isn't about what every got for each other, it is just about being thankful for what you have.

I love Christmas! Jesus' birth is the best reason to celebrate, but I love the decorations and family time, the music, candles, etc. We never do a lot or big gifts, so no one gets too distracted with that, but we do have fun with it.

I love Christmas, some of my best childhood memories are from Christmas and I want my kids to experience the same thing. I love giving gifts and spending time with family, and being spoiled! Now that we're Catholic'ing, we're going to incorporate Christmas Eve Mass, I can't wait!!

Lucky mother to five!

Christmas - We always had so many fun traditions and ways that we celebrated and learned while keeping the focus on Christ's birth. I have so many wonderful memories growing up around the Christmas season.

Christmas!! I love decorating and baking cookies and giving gifts. I love the way the kids get excited by the songs and the movies and the stories... It gives me the warm fizzies. I've already bought quite a few presents (I love coupons!!)

I am dreading Christmas this year, since it is the first one since my mom died, but the only way to get over the hurdle is to get over it...

Christmas, it's a special day all around. Celebrating the birth of Christ, spending time w/ your extended family, all the joy and excitement, etc.

I just wish that the weeks prior to Christmas were a little less stressful but I do it to myself so I shouldn't complain.
