    1. My favorite thing about the holidays is decorating the Christmas tree. I love pulling out all the old ornaments, some going way back to my parents’ first Christmas together in the late 60s. Each ornament has a story or a memory attached. After the tree is up, I like to lie on the floor (near the roaring fire of course) and admire it.

      My favourite time of the year is having my son home from school for a few weeks!

    3. having the vanity plate FA LA LA should give you are pretty good idea how much I love the holidays! I go straight from jack-o-lanterns to Elf’s on the shelf. There is no time for Tom Turkey in my house! Let’s get decorating now!!!

    4. My favorite part of the holidays is going to be my new Evergleam aluminum tree!

    5. Nancy Huenergardt says:

      My favorite thing to do is put up my aluminum Christmas trees while listening to Christmas music. Love those wreaths!

    6. Donna Huddleston says:

      We have missed a lot of traditional Christmases the last 10 yrs due to cancer, last year included. I bought a new tree last year, and well, just never got around to putting it away. I keep making new ornaments and putting them on the tree. I hope this year is a bit saner. If not, the tree will stay up until my family is healed.

    7. Being able to travel back home and see my family.

    8. Oh little elf, little elf … Christmas really begins when we hear David Sedaris read “SantaLand Diaries” on NPR and hear the dulcet tones of “Billy Holiday” singing Away in a Manger.

    9. My two sons are 2 1/2 and 4 months. I love introducing the holiday season to them. Especially my 2 1/2 year old. We have a nativity play set and a Christmas village that allows us to be creative and get excited about Christmas. I also LOVE reading The Sweet Smell of Christmas. There is nothing cuter than seeing my son smell the stickers and say “mom smell Christmas!”
