I like everything about Christmas. The extra quality time with family, the gift buying/giving/receiving, decorating the tree, wrapping gifts, listening to and singing Christmas songs, Christmas movies, etc. I don't care if it's 'commercialized' Big deal.

For me its time to spend with family first and foremost... but the gift of giving is part of the fun... but it doesn't mean you have to spend money... it can be home made or whatever. Most gifts I an giving this year are home made by me.

For me it's spending time with my family (And spending $ on kids).

Really I try to emphasize giving with my kids, we pick out 2 kids off of a giving tree and donate to them and my older boy goes through his toys and gives the ones he doesn't play with or like anymore to good will.

It's also about creating memories and traditions with my boys.
