Things I Love About Christmas

I love Christmas. 
I could probably make a list that would go on all day,
but you would get bored and leave, so I'll just share a few.


I LOVE

#1  Christmas Music



#2  The Christmas Tree(s)



#3  My ornaments - a box of memories



#4  Christmas Cookies - well, almost any kind of cookie really

#5  Wassail (I'll share the Sanders family recipe)

#6  Family Gatherings

#7  Christmas Movies (and Jimmy Stewart)



#8  The World's Focus on The Birth of Christ
        (even if some of it is unintentional)



#9  Christmas Cards - I still love getting snail mail



#10 You can put a Santa hat and a ribbon on anything and get away with it



or anyone




Did you notice I didn't mention gifts?  I'm no Scrooge, but it's not about gifts for me.  I love to give them, but without one material gift given or received in my house - it would still be Christmas and it would still be special.  Because the Greatest Gift has already been given.

What about you?  What do you LOVE about the Christmas Season?

Celebrate!

I love cards, roaring fires, the dinner, twinkling tree lights and the excitement of little children!
