What is your favorite part of the Holiday Season?
Some people enjoy the Christmas “atmosphere” although through the years it has become more commercial than anything else. Some enjoy being with friends and having a great excuse to shop.

It has indeed changed for me during the years. When I was young I cherished time to play hockey/shinny and playing in hockey tournaments. After our children came, it was focusing on providing them with significant family-time (with us) and a most wonderful Christmas experience. Now the focus is on providing our grand children and youngest child (college age and the only one unmarried now) with a most wonderful experience. If I may add, I am now more focused on providing quality time with my love between grand children and children times.

2. Getting together with family and friends and sharing meals and special times together.
That's what the holidays are all about.
