I love looking at the lights. And seeing the kids eyes light up when they first wake up.

I love the lights even though my dh won't put any on our house. Thinking back on my childhood that was such a magical thing. Driving down the street and seeing all the houses decorated. I have to admit that last year only a handful were actually decorated in our entire neighborhood this year! I also love to see others open the gifts that I've given them. I take a lot of time and try to find just the perfect unexpected item that they would never ask for but secretly want!

My favorite part is watching people open gifts too. I work hard trying to come up with stuff that they would really like and it's fun to see their faces.

I love buying people gifts. :) I also love seeing my family, and that will be even moreso this year since I've moved for college.

I love putting lights on the house, decorating the inside, putting up the tree, wrapping presents and watching everyone open their presents - seeing the excitement on their face. I like to open mine last as I enjoy watching everyone else.

I love watching peoples faces when they open that gift they "really" had to have. Lights, sounds and smells of the holidays. Just a GREAT time of year.

I love the lights and the smells and buying gifts, but what I really love is that people seem to get along so much more during Christmas. People actually say thank you and are tolerant (except on BF), and just seem happier. That's what I enjoy. Maybe I'm nuts!:rolleyes:
The gifts you buy this year may not be remembered next year....but the memories you create together will be remembered a lifetime!. :gdhug1:

Christmas tree with lots and lots and lots of lights, the multi- colored ones and at least 1 strand of twinkle ones. All the lights off, except for the tree and a cup of cider. Hmm, is it too early to put my tree up?? :D

Spending time with extended family is the number one thing, with watching my nephews open their gifts a close second.

Wrapping all the gifts, I try to make each one look as if it was professionally wrapped, the holiday scents and the time with family and friends.

pretty much everything about the holidays...shopping for presents, wrapping the presents, all the lights and decorations, Christmas trees. Nothing beats seeing how my kids faces light up when they see what Santa left!

In my family, I'm the youngest of 8 and I have a huge extended family. Not all of us make it home every Christmas, but most of us do. I love to be with all of my family and the craziness of all the kids running around excited about what they got from Santa. Our tradition is to get up the next morning, pack the new toys in the van and drive to Pigeon Forge TN to a cabin that we have rented. It is a beautiful part of the country and we get to spend quality time with the kids.

I have so many things I really enjoy.....but seeing the smiles on my children faces all through the holiday season is precious.....decorating, baking with them, singing christmas songs, and of course the presents.

I love the smell of cookies baking, hot cocoa, good hot coffee, the lights, the packages. I like to go out driving and looking at the lights. My MIL can't drive at night anymore so we picked her up last year and went out a few days before Christmas. I got Starbucks for me (no one else wanted it and I know, in NE Florida it's not really cold, but I can dream...) and had the radio on low on a station w/ 24 hour Christmas music. We had a blast and I'm already planning another tour of the city!

I love decorating my house, baking cookies with my kids and family, the snow-if we get any- wrapping presents, the countdown to christmas, my kids get sooooo excited, Opening presents, family get togethers even though my sister's fiancee passed away 2 yrs ago during Christmas....so sad, he was only 23, so we will hold a candlelight vigil for Eric.
