For me it's actually a winding down time because my own religious holiday is a few days before & my family celebrates it big. I feel like the holiday season starts in October with Samhain (and a little fun with Halloween) and then there is Thanksgiving (which we host every year and do big) and then the Winter Solstice-- so it's like boom, boom, boom for 2 months. And we go to a multifaith church that throws in parties and celebrations for everything from Hannakkah to Diwali to Christmas-- and our church community is very close so we get in on a lot of it.
So by Christmas I feel pooped and am just glad it's over and I can rest-- or at least, I don't have to cook, clean and decorate :-) I can just enjoy. Either we stay home and spend the day in our jammies watching tv, playing games, etc. or we go to a family member/friend's house for dinner or celebrations. Today we are at my moms, we're sleeping over & doing the whole Santa thing.
It's such a pretty, peaceful season for me overall, and I'm all for a party so as long as there is good food & company, it's going to be a good day.
A merry Christmas to you. Enjoy your holiday!
It's a time to be with family...because everyone is there...lot's of laughter, and plenty of good food. Celebrating the birth of Jesus and being thankful. Merry Christmas, Cristale.

Just curious why you can't say Merry Christmas anymore? I have never got upset when someone said Happy Hanukkah. The way I see it, someone is just wishing good times based on whatever their background is. I think it's very nice. I'm sure I'll regret the onslaught of religious debates that will...

I just want to say: Merry Christmas from Sunny Florida to all my friends and followers here in HubLand. You mean a great deal to me. I could get all mushy and sentimental about my 9 months here, but I'll save you the read!
