I love Christmas and everything that surrounds it! (Yes... even the Christmas music... I know I know (-.-) )
I love the Christmas story (not as much as Easter's story, but they're both exciting and crucial) but really, I'll say it's because I get to spend time with my family, and enjoying their company, the presents and food are just bonus :)

Love Christmas, but not quite as much as I did when I was younger and my family would indulge me with plastic action figures every year :grin: , but its still cool. Where I work, it means lots of overtime so I guess that's a good substitute for all the presents. Though, I think I'd give up the extra money for more time to sit at home and binge watch anime, or Dexter, or whatever I feel like (yeah, my life's not that interesting).

But, whatever, the food's good, there are pretty lights everywhere--its my favorite holiday. Usually I go with my family over my Grandma's house, and we eat, hang out, etc. It's cool. My mom always decorates our house with all kinds of stuff: wreaths, lights, Christmas tree (obliviously), etc., and we always watch Jingle All the Way at least once or twice.

I love decorating the house/cookies/the tree, presents, the Christmas music, having fun with my family; you know, all that good stuff. :) Ooh, and sitting in front of the cozy woodstove. That's not entirely a 'Christmas' thing, but I'll probably be doing it Christmas morning. :lol:

Since Halloween is not celebrated in India....no free candy. and feb 14 is sad cause everything is expensive as it is valentines. i love christmas because everyone is quite happy and lively. Also I like that fact that Christmas is anout giving. For me after Easter, it is the most imp happy time of the year.

I like it because it's the birth of our Saviour. As for the holiday, I haven't had a Christmas that I can call "good". I stress easily and quickly. Just the thought of having to meet with a loud family, noisy children, and get gifts for everyone ruins everything... at those times I wish I could be a cat, so I can hide on top of a cupboard or inside a box somewhere. I am very much like a cat when it comes to family >.< I love you, but please stop touching me.

I have what I call the "100 Days". The 100 days start on September 29th and go through Epiphany (January 6). It's my favorite time of year, absolutely. Fall weather; football, and baseball playoffs; Halloween; my birthday; Thanksgiving; Advent; Christmas; and New Year's Day. It's the food, the music (I start playing Christmas carols and Handel's Messiah the weekend after Thanksgiving), the Christmas cards, setting up the tree and the decorations. It's planning our annual party -- "Advance the Year Marker", this will be our 8th year hosting -- where we get together with a couple dozen friends to play board games all day. Christmas decorations come down the day after Epiphany like clockwork.

I've always liked Christmas, not only for the decorations but also for the food, music, and the meaning behind it.
(Plus eggnog. What's not to love?)
Christmases aren't too exciting around here. On Christmas Eve, after our church service, we gather around the tree and open gifts from one another while watching A Christmas Story. We've seen the movie so many times we can quote it word for word, but it never gets old. :B
On Christmas Day, my little brothers smack me in the face with pillows until I wake up (or vice versa) and then we open presents from "Santa". One of my pets are usually forced into wearing a Santa hat somewhere along the line.

Ummm.... eggnog. It's icky (but I know lots of people like it, so I digress)

I forgot about church stuff :O On New Years Eve, we usually have a service, and now with the new family model we've been doing, I'd be shocked if we don't.
We usually had a comedy thing happen, and it was a mix of weird, creepy, and fantastically funny. But with all the changes in leadership, I don't know what we'll do (And then we get another pastor around/after that)

As per stuff that I do at home, it's always great, we always had both sets of grandparents to come over and we'd really just enjoy being with them, and we'd have a bunch of baking my mother made and stuff that she bought from bakeries. It's always just a pleasant calm day.
