  • I love the lights. Not necessarily the decorations that people put up, though some of the displays are beautiful. I am talking about the natural lights, the stars in the winter sky. That is my favorite part of the "holiday season" or the winter season. I feel so connected with the night sky in the winter, when it is crisp outside and the milky way is thick. If only I lived close enough to the pole to be able to see the Northern Lights. They appeared one year, maybe a decade or so ago, and you could just see a bit here from Northern CA (north of Sac). It was breathtaking.

  • I love it all!! I love the family time, the kids faces when they see Santa... Lighting up my house inside and out and playing joyful music... Going to the stores to see everyone bundled up around town walking with bags in their hands, the lights down our main street that glow through the snow falling. I LOVE Christmas time. "It's the most wonderful time of the year!!"

  • The family time, the traditions we carry from generation to generation, the baking of cookies and cakes and pies, the holiday lights and decorations, the tree, the music. But, most of all the happy faces of my grandchildren when they open their gifts and see what Santa brought them.
