- Wedding: October 2010 - Kindred Oaks, Georgetown
I don’t know what’s going on this year but I can not wait for Christmas. I mean, it is my favorite holiday, but this year I really can’t wait. I will be strong and not decorate until after Thanksgiving (a personal rule I feel I must follow) but this will probably be the first year I decorate on Black Friday. My fiance even agreed to help decorate this year!!! I can’t wait only and week and a half left!
What about you guys? Has anyone already broken down and busted out the holiday cheer?

I USED to get outrageously excited about the holidays, until my daughter and only child died eight years ago. It wasn’t until 2 years ago I started putting a tree up again. Last year was nice, very mellow, with my beloved. I will settle for that now.

Can I confide in you all that I hate the holidays? I know it’s weird, but true.
I love thanksgiving for the food and low expectations, but I feel that Christmas and New Years get so built up and then are always a let down. I do enjoy me some Hannukkah if I get a chance to celebrate.

@ Mrs. DG- Me too. I hate Christmas.
Despite that, I’m excited for this x-mas. FI gets 2 weeks of leave to come home and we’re taking our e-pics!
My favorite part of the holidays is baking Christmas cookies and candy! It’s my mother’s and my holiday tradition.

I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday of the year. 🙂 But I don’t have a tree. I go home every year for christmas and my mother has a fabulous tree. 😀

I think this year is the first year I am so excited I can barely hold it in. I have already broken out the Christmas music and Thanksgiving isn’t until next week! Perhaps it’s because last Christmas I was duped into thinking a ring wouldn’t come, but it did! Christmas Eve this year will be our 1 year engagement anniversary and then next Christmas will be our first as husband and wife! 🙂 I know nothing could top last Christmas with our engagement, but I am just so happy this year to be celebrating… well… everything! I am a huge fan of Christmas in general (my bio-mom wouldn’t let us decorate when I was a child, long story) so I decorate simply but zestfully as an adult! 🙂 I am hoping FI will be ok with helping me put up the tree early this year (although we may be moving right before the holiday so we may not have a tree up and such, I dunno). Bella loves her some CHRISTMAS! 🙂
The best part, I have to admit… is the gifts. It’s not the receiving of gifts that I enjoy the most (although I do appreciate them), but the buying and giving of gifts. We are really trying to think of great ones this year (instead of so many gosh darn gift cards – I have been noseying around FMIL and found out what she wants!). I just, I get so much happiness and joy out of watching others open our gifts, that we know they will enjoy. OK, and I’ll admit another thing. I love it when I wrap up our pugs’ Christmas gifts and then help them open them. They are always so surprised 🙂

I am extremely excited about Christmas this year! I think the best part is that my son is now a the the age he wants to open presents and look at christmas lights…He still does not care for Santa but he just LOVES Christmas trees, lights, and its just so exciting. I am also really excited that I will get to spend this Christmas with my fiance…He will be coming over early Christmas morning and spending the entire day with us…I just can’t wait 🙂
