  • I love Christmas so much. I can't wait. Thanksgiving and Halloween and fun, but Christmas is the BEST. I just found out we won't be able to go home for Christmas this year for the first time, so I'm super bummed, but it's still my favorite holiday ever!

  • no. I hate Christmas. It is too stressful. The kids expect the tree and crap and it takes forever to dig it all out of the basement and put it up. Now I know how my mother felt all those years. Other then the tree we don't decorate. I do like the way it looks once it is up but most of the time I just sit there thinking, "eventually I have to take it all down and put it away and I hate it." Not to mention I don't have the money to do anything I want like buy new decorations for the tree (most of ours are at least 25 or more years old, some are older then me so 32+ years).
    Usually by Christmas I can't wait for it to be over and I usually take it all down by January 2nd. Last year I took it down before New Years because I couldn't stand to look at it another day.

  • I do. I love christmas. I start to decorate the day after thanksgiving. that's when I do the outside of my house. then on Dec 4th (hubby b-day) we decorate the inside of teh house. Me the kids and hubby start decorationg and then in teh evening I do a little get together and our family and close friends come over and we finish together. It's awsome. I have a lot of decorations because every year we add something to it.

  • Oooh, yeah! I love Christmas. I'm fond of Thanksgiving, but the day after, when I can start decorating and turn on the Christmas music is even better. It's the most wonderful time of the year, after all.
