Christmas is a big deal for us. Not just because my mom and dad always made sure it was a fun and memorable time of the year as we were growing up, but also because I have a true appreciation for what took place on the very first Christmas many years ago.
It would take me an hour or two to list all of the reasons that I love Christmas, so I thought I'd keep it simple and make a short list of some of my favorite Christmas things...
Movie - White Christmas
(The Santa Clause, A Christmas Story, Die Hard and Elf get a nod as well)
Sweet - This one deserves a list...my mom's peanut butter balls, candy canes, Janet's hershey kisses cookies (hint, hint), Bergey's Dairy's Colonial Custard
Song - I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
Tradition - Opening one gift on Christmas Eve
Gift Received - my Canon camera last year from Tricia
Gift Given - Ralphie the cat to Tricia our first married Christmas (Ralphie should be back with us when we move into our new house after living more than year with grandma!)
Meal - The Christmas breakfast my mom makes every year...an egg and sausage quiche type thing (I'll never understand why it only comes once a year)
What about you?
