Hmmm, I love any holiday when I am with family and/or good friends and just enjoying the company. I guess Christmas would probably be the favorite if I have to pick since this is the one where I get to see all those friends and family.
This year is a little different. My nephew is locked up and I no longer have custody of him. This one is going to hurt since he is like my own kid. I have had him for the last 8 years and just cannot imagine holidays without him. Mom wants me to go down to Dallas with everyone else but I'm on the out's with my sister (for very good reason and she doesn't see why I'm angry and upset over a two year long situation she has taken advantage of) and really don't want to be near or around her. I will probably go and return immediately after we eat so I can go see my nephew that Saturday. Here's the rub with that one though...the 27th is my dad's birthday. I think I just want to bypass the holidays this year! LOL

xmas only because its the time to see my son's reaction to a present he wanted all year long. He's only 4 but the best feeling will be this year when he opens his train table set.

"Some people are like a slinky, not really good 4 anything, but you can't resist smiling when you shove them down the stairs" Everything Happens 4 a reason, even though you may not see that reason immediately. “Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” ~Ann Landers http://www.beyondthewillows.
