It is offically the holiday season and I am jumping for joy. This absolutely one of my favorite times of the year. Santa, family and decorations ! You also can’t forget the Christmas music, which started on Thanksgiving this year.
One of my favorite things is to get gifts for those I care about. I want to get the perfect stocking stuffer and gift for each. I want to help y’all out this year with some gift guides. This first one is for all the ladies in your life.
Christmas is here and I am smiling from ear to ear. This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Yes, it is exciting to get gifts and give them, but this is not why I love Christmas. I will keep it short and sweet as to why because let me tell you this topic alone could be months worth of blog posts.
Christmas Time for me is my favorite because it means laughter with family and friends, sitting by the Christmas tree, eating a delicious honey baked ham, A Christmas Story movie will probably always make an apperance, Christmas mass where we all get to rock amazing holiday fashion(the fashions pictured are two of my favorite looks this year !) and yes rocking my new Christmas PJS.
Christmas time is all about tradition and that tradition is spending time with each other and yes we do open gifts, but what I get excited about the most is watching everyone else open their gifts and seeing them get giddy. With my family there seems to always be lots of laughter when we open our stockings and gifts, which creates such a warmth in me 🙂
Christmas time tradition also includes picking up a tree, decorating it with family ornaments, shopping together, wrapping presents, baking yummy cookies, putting up lights with my dad and in recent years, I have been going to Pinterest for a couple new DIY decorations for each new Christmas time season.
I will end this year’s Christmas time post with why Christmas time for me is extra exciting. The reason is because it is my Amazing mother’s birthday the very same day we celebrate Christmas ! We celebrate it by going to a fun movie, opening bday gifts and fullfilling my mom’s sweet tooth with a birthday cake.
With Jingle Bells playing, trees shining with tinsel and cookies being eaten, what do you love most about the holiday season ?
With the holidays not only comes family and friends and party, but holiday decorating and decor too becomes apart of the holiday season. It is one of my favorite things about Christmastime because not only do I get to make it pretty for Christmas, but for my mom’s birthday, which happens to be Christmas Day.
The decor just adds to the special feeling of Christmas, family and love. It’s my favorite holiday because of my mom and my love of Christmas and holiday decor grew from that.
Here are many of the Christmas/holiday decorations we have at our house to help give you last minute ideas and the last couple are compliments of Google.
Btw, Trader Joes has a great gingerbread house kit! My mom surprised me with one and let’s me be a big kid 🙂
