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!
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.
