I love the Holidays. Growing up, we would always decorate the tree after Thanksgiving dinner, marking the beginning of the holiday season. I've been singing carols for weeks now, and scurrying around stores searching for the perfect presents. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite things about the holidays.
When we decorate our tree its an all day affair. We drink hot cocoa and talk about the memories and meanings behind each ornament. Even the embarrassing homemade ones from 3rd grade.
Living in New England, snow is huge part of the holiday season. I'm not one for skiing or snowboarding, but I do love to build a snowman or two!
I love baking around the holiday season. I love the smells of peppermint and gingerbread wafting through the house. We have a giant party on Christmas Eve and I love to bake desert.

I love giving and getting presents. I love spending the time to pick out presents that I know my family and friends will love. I also love the bustle of the mall around the holidays. Having to shove through crowds somehow makes it all the more exciting.
Whats your favorite part of the holiday season?
