"Christmas time is here..."

I love Christmas!!
"It is the most wonderful time of the year..."

I love that I can listen to songs about Jesus on a secular radio station.
I love the busy malls! (I know that is crazy!)

I love our old village set that Beth and I spent hours playing with as kids!
I love our fancy village set that we could only look at!
I love gingerbread men!
I love dressing for the season!

I love hot apple cider.
I love saying "Merry Christmas!" to a stranger.
I love watching Christmas movies with the family.
I love Christmas plays.
I love decorating.
I love wonderful sweet songs about Christmas (Silent Night, What Child is This, Mary Did You Know.).
I love the crazy/ridiculous/meaningless Christmas songs (Santa Baby, I Want a Hippo for Christmas, All I Want for Christmas is You. The Grinch Song.)
I love dressing up!
I love seeing others happy.
I love making coffee!
I love the food!
