  • On Thanksgiving I love my family being together and on Christmas I watching my kids open their Christmas presents and getting excited because they got that "one" thing that they really wanted.

  • My most favorite part is when it's over... Sorry I know I sound like Scrooge. I'm not to our kids, they have a great x-mas... It's just my least favorite time of the year...

  • I agree with MrsLeftlane.....Christmas with just our children is great, it is just all the other stuff that goes with the holidays that I don't like. People spend money they don't have for gifts for people they don't like and then complain about it..

  • I love EVERYTHING about the holidays. I do wish it wasn't SO commercialized though. But I still get the "magical" feeling I got when I was a kid so it's great! I love the shopping, the hustle and bustle, the family time, doing crafts and cooking with my kids, the beautiful decorations, the fun of seeing the kids on Christmas morning, going to the candlelight service on Christmas eve, having the kids home from school more, every single bit of it is wonderful to me.

  • I love going to Midnight Mass. That and being with my husband and son. We don't go to family gatherings anymore since my Dad passed away 5 years ago, because my Mom, siblings and in-laws make it clear that we are not wanted there. It's their loss, not ours!
