    I like cooking for people and having them over. I particularly like to bake for people. At this time of year I have an excuse to have guests any time.

    I think my favorite part about this time of year is celebrating the birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love to celebrate it by sharing His love. I do a lot of baking and then share what I bake with family and friends. I try to do this at times during the year, but living in south central florida it can be very hot and turning on my oven is not the smartest thing to do when it gets really hot. Thanks for sharing your favorite things! I LOVE ice cream. I am originally from Massachusetts where we had lots of dairy farms that made their own ice cream right there on the farm and they were sooooo yummy. I miss that taste of fresh made ice cream. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream sounds delicious. Thanks again for sharing!!

    My favorite thing about this time of year for one is the cool weather and that wonderful fresh smell that accompanies it. Also spending time with friends and family

  8. My favorite part of this time of year are all of the twinkly lights. Since it snows 6 months out of the year here, I am all for leaving up pretty lights for most of winter…I think it would make the post-holiday days seem less miserable!

    I LOVE baking my great great grandmother’s Christmas Tourtiere, I learned how to make it from my grandmother and my great nieces love it too. I know that I’m carrying on a tradition created hundreds of years ago and it will live on many years after I’m gone. Every Christmas Eve we share the pies at our family gathering and I send one home with each family so they can enjoy it again when they choose! <3 So many good memories surrounding these meat pies!

  11. Michele West

    There isn’t much that I don’t LOVE about Christmas! If I have to choose one thing, it would be creating memories and traditions with my 6 year old little girl. It’s so much fun watching her experience everything from baking, to gingerbread house making, etc.

    Definitely the lights. It makes everything look sweeter and vibrant, and fills me with light too.

  19. My favorite thing is sitting by the fireplace and enjoying just some quiet time with my husband and cats. It’s how I recharge and don’t let myself get consumed by this very busy time of year. unplug and just soak it all in.

  25. Cindy Leonard

    Reading “The Christmas Mystery” by Jostein Gaarder with my 15 yo daughter. We started doing it back when she was 7yo and she still looks forward to it. The chapters are arranged by date starting December 1 and ending December 24. There are parts in the story where I’ve always paused..and she fills in a phrase that continues throughout, “To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem!” and we giggle. I can picture her doing the same someday with her children.

  26. Aaron B

    Normally I would say the time off from work but I’ll be working during the holiday break this year. I love giving gifts to family members, especially small little creative funny things.
