Thirteen Things Holly Likes About The Holidays

1…. I like the constant array of Christmas shows that come on the tv each night.
2…. I like being out on the roads at night and seeing all of the beautiful Christmas lights.
3…. ESPECIALLY when there is snow!
4…. And REALLY ESPECIALLY if I don't have to be the one driving!!!
5…. I like listening to Christmas Carols REALLY loud (but only when I'm home alone...LOL)
6…. I like breaking out the Egg Nog while I'm putting up Christmas decorations.
7…. I like remembering Christmas's from the past (although I'd prefer to forget a few of them)
8…. I like making my "special" Christmas cookies that my family practically begs me to make every year.
9…. I like handing my kids the change out of the bottom of my purse to put into the Salvation Army kettles.
10…. I like wearing my Santa hat in public.
11…. I like it when I see people doing simple things for complete strangers for no reason at all (like holding the door open for the person behind them that's coming into a store)
12…. I like walking around a store with a smile on my face and watching all of the people who are walking around with these HUGE attitudes.
13…. I like the fact that in my heart I know there really still is a Santa Claus!

I can agree with your whole daughter still insists on giving the change in my purse to the Savlation Army bell ringer and she's 27!

I love driving around looking at Christmas lights. One year my husband gave me a video of houses all over the U.S. that decorate their houses. He said that way we could sit in front of the fire and still go see the light! Sweet!

come see my 13

Home alone with the Christmas music blaring... you and me, sister!!!


"D" said...

I'm all for the Christmas music too! Each year we compile some onto a CD and label for that year - it's fun to listen to year past CD's and 'rememorize' all the events that happened. My 13 is up...

Leanne said...

Christmas songs always make me cry! I love seeing the lights though, people get really creative with outdoor decorations nowadays!

Thanks for joining in!!

Renee said...
