    I love this time of year because it gives me a chance to look back on my past and reflect. Also, I love this time of year because I have an 11 year old daughter. I don’t think it would be as fun, if she weren’t in my life. What a blessing. Thank you!

    Twinkle lights. They make everything better.

    Plus getting to see friends and family that I usually only see once a year. It’s nice to take a break for just personal reasons. :)

    I love that my wife and I have always been too broke to buy each other Christmas gifts, but we don’t care because we are happy and the kids are cute.

    Harold says:

    My daughter teaches Spanish in Middle school (Georgia). She says that the school is made up of mid-high risk kids, many are poor and feel excluded because their parent(s) are out of work and know the struggle of their moms and/or dads to make ends meet. Their Christmas will not be a merry one. My daughter came up with an idea for our family: to buy gifts for those kids this year instead of buying gifts for each other. I am so proud of my daughter for this kind thought. It makes me feel really good. This has caused me to rethink what giving is all about!

    Cheryl says:

    I usually love this time of year for the whacky gifts I manage to come up with and I totally love the evilness in the air in regards to my neice’s gifts. They are finally at the age where they give as good as they get and to me, that’s great as it creates a shared experience that I can look back on and revel in!

    I love wrapping presents. Each year I have a theme, brown paper with some sort of color coded ribbon/decoration and tissue paper. I never write my name on the gifts, so my family has learned that if it’s wrapped up fancy in brown paper, it’s from me.

    Homemade chocolate truffles! I make them for family and friends (and myself!) every year. They are incredibly time consuming so I can only justify it in the holiday season.
