I love this time of year because people seem nicer to each other. People hold doors, let others in traffic and just seem a little more polite.

It is interesting to watch my kids grow and how that changes Christmas. We used to draw names for the kids and each one would buy a gift for their sibling. As they've grown up, they now buy for all of their siblings. It's really cute to see it go from a $1.00 box of candy to something that their brother or sister would really like. It's not the gift itself, but that they really put a lot of thought into the gift! emoticon

I too like to give gifts, but I'll admit my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I love how we don't get anything, but we just are thankful for what we already have. I think we all need that every so often!

May this Christmas be Merry for you all.

My hats off to nurses. You all work really hard and sacrifice so much of yourselves to take care of others. emoticon

Normally this is just another day to me but this year Im actually off for christmas and I have vacation the week after . So I get to spend time with the kids. working as a nurse you get use to never getting holidays or weekends off and it really sucks. last year was terrible when i had to work christmas eve and day my daughter begged me to stay home. If you cant spend time with your family it just does not feel like a holiday. I just feel so blessed to get to spend time with them I am full of christmas spirit. I have decorated my office, house and really did up presents with bows and ribbons.

I love the cold weather because it makes you want to stay in and curl up on the couch with loved ones. I love online shopping, but I do not do well with store shopping. To many rude people for me. I love the family closeness it brings because my family could care less about one another the rest of the year. And I love watching my kids get all excited during the days leading up to Christmas. And usually it's good eatin' too, but this year I will be trying to make a light dinner, so we will see how it comes out.

I absolutely love this time of year....I love giving gifts to my family and friends just to see their faces....it's priceless....I shop for my entire family...and I like giving the gifts I know they wouldn't buy for themselves....I sometimes give gift cards or cash one person this year is getting cash and his father is getting a gift card...I'm finished shopping for everyone except one of my sons....he wants the ipod touch so I'm going to pick that up this weekend...Some times I wrap and sometimes I don't....this year I'm not wrapping....being lazy I guess.....I love being in the stores I love the Christmas music and it's just fun but then I like shopping in any season


What about you how do you feel about this time of the year
