OneScrapHappyMomma said...

What a great giveaway! My favorite thing about the holidays is obviously being with family I don't get to see the rest of the year - the "out-of-towners". But the less obvious answer would be all the pretty, sparkly colors and decorations. You just have to be in a good mood when you are around that much glitter!

Genny said...

Picking out the tree. I know it's cold and hubby isn't amused when I take forever choosing the PERFECT tree....but the smell and the atmosphere gets me right in the mood for Christmas!

Stephanne said...

It's hard for me to pick just one thing about the holidays, so I pick ALL OF IT! The time spent with family, the decorations, the holiday specials on TV, the food... everything.

Lisa said...

The part I like best about the holidays is the time spent with family. Everyone is so busy it's good to have that time.

My favorite part is on Christmas day, my mom has the tradition of everyone must sing Christmas carols before we can open our gifts. I love seeing my kids sing their hearts out! Happy holidays to everyone!

Thanks so much for the chance to win, Kelly! I love so many things about the holidays, but my most favourite part is being able to connect with my family (immediate and extended) and spend quality time together. This Christmas will be hard ... I just lost my sister to breast cancer two weeks ago. But she would want us to be together and enjoy one another, and so we will - for her.
