  • For me its all the lights and music. The snow always helps too but I grew up where we never got snow.

  • My SO and I go to Disneyland every year, usually within the first 2 weeks of December. All the decorations, music, disney stuff haha, gets me in the spirit. And my DD is 18 months old this time we go, so she will be able to enjoy it so much more!
    And when I see lights up everywhere, I love the lights :)

  • Christmas music and lights! Back in the day when my son was young we would all get in the car, turn on the Christmas music and tour through the neighborhoods looking at the houses with all the lights and Christmas "Yard Art."
