    I love Halloween. There is something about the colors of autumn, jack o,lanterns, kids dressed up in costume, apple cider and plain old good fun that makes me love this holiday. Growing up in New England, I have an appreciation for the fall season. The colors of the turning leaves and the cooler weather add an extra element to Halloween that does not exists in other parts of the country. New England is charming in fall and a fun host to Halloween.

    Halloween is my favorite. I love to decorate like crazy for that one day. I hand craft the treat bags, about 125. Give lots of candy and glow bracelets. I love the fall time. I enjoy seeing all the costumes and happy little children. They look at all the decorations and scary stuff, people even take pictures of the house. Pumpkin carving is a cool craft too. There is a lot to do. It is a time of giving instead of receiving and I enjoy that.

    Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite. It is a time for family, good food and spending time reflecting on the past year and what the next year might bring.

    I was born on mine - Halloween.  We have always loved that holiday, the mysteriousness of it, the creepy factor and just the rich history and blend of traditions that it embodies.  Having my birthday on an awesome holiday is just bonus smile

    Absolutely!  I love Christmas Eve - now, I know that doesn't sound like your typical "holiday", but Christmas is kind of sad really.  First off, I'm talking about the commercialized holiday and not religious.

    That out of the way... I consider Christmas to be sad.  It's the end of the build up that has happened since Thanksgiving.  There is no more anticipation of the family dinner to come, or presents under the tree.  The shops and homes on the streets get prepared to take decorations down, or already are doing so come Christmas day.  The "holiday cheer" has subsided and it quite often feels to be like that feeling you get after eating a huge Thanksgiving meal and everyone is sitting around stuffed ready for naps.

    This is why for me Christmas Eve is the best.  It's the height of anticipation for presents, the family meal, Santa for the children, and usually it's a night and day filled with baking, preparing for the upcoming festive party, happy times and singing to music.  I find that on Christmas Eve it's often lots more enjoyable and "in the spirit" than Christmas day itself. 

    Don't get me wrong, for some it could be quite the opposite, but this is from my perspective of the Christmas holidays over the past 30 years.
