Christmas is my all time favorite. I got the book the Christmas Carol by Dickens for Chirstmas when I was in 7th grade (1963)(I am now 57) and read it every year. In 1993, my husband go me an illustrated edition. I read this book every year and have since 1963. My name is Carolyn and when I was on a bowling team a few years ago, when we put our name on the score board, I always put Christmas Carol during the Christmas season. Then you should see my house, inside and I, I go all out with decorations. Love the holiday.

Thanksgiving - no question. Fall spilling into winter, friends and family, and I love turkey and giving thanks. The one that I like least is New Year's.

Favorite Holiday... I like them all, but it has to be Christmas! I LOVE the Christmas music, and decorating the tree and hanging the lights outside!!!

Christmas because it means time with family!
The journey is just as important as the destination!

Christmas is my favorite, it seems the Spirit of Christmas is so contagious. Most people go out of their way to be nice. I love the music in the stores when I am shopping. It just makes me smile.

I don't dress up and I don't go to parties. It's the decorations I love. I see Halloween stuff in the stores and I have to keep myself under control from buying all the neat stuff. It's mostly the pumpkin decorations too. I have a lot of nice ceramic Halloween decorations, not the tacky stuff at the dollar store. I'm picky about what I buy. Plus I have a whole set of decorations for the camper too.
This year I won't get to buy anything as I'm still unemployed.

Celebrating the birth of Christ BY FAR is my most special holiday. It's not just "the day" but the whole season that is so special - I just love it!

Christmas, without a doubt! Of course the fact that I have a grandson who is at the perfect age doesn't hurt the enjoyment either. The only thing I don't like about it is getting everybody together at the same time because sometimes things seem to get out of hand with certain family members, but it is just a short time frame, and being family is what is all about. Merry Christmas everyone! Becky
You can only take one step at a time, it is best that the step is forward, not back. But even a backward step is exercise! LOL

I enjoy Christmas because of the snow, the decorations, the food, the gifts, the surprises, the kindness of strangers, the music, etc. It is a lot of work, though, and I don't get any down time. It is my favorite holiday, though.
Right now, I enjoy my birthday more. It is much less work, much lower expectations, and I don't have to do anything I don't want to do. Some years I just go shopping and other years go out to lunch with someone, but I take the day off work and do whatever I want to do.

Christmas! I love the lights and just the fact that most people are in a good mood, happy, friendly and enjoying the season. It last so long (although I don't start until Dec 1), so I enjoy watching all the holiday movies, listening to music, decorating. I'm just a big kid - and I love having all my family, friends around.

I like the 4th of July.
The weather is warm, you get to go swimming, everyone comes together for a pinic outside, so you don't have to clean the house, the food is good and most time fresh from the garden, you get to set off fireworks, and best of all you don't have to buy presents.

New Years Eve and Day: It is a time for reflection, away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday gift exchanges. It is also a time to plan for the next years successes.
