2. I LOVE shopping! Let me clarify that by saying that I LOVE to find a deal. Bargain hunting is a way of life and I'm never so thrilled as when I find a stellar deal on something. I actually shop for Christmas all year round and have very little (if any) shopping left to do when December comes around. The only problem this year is I still haven't wrapped our presents!
3. This one is similar to the last one, but I LOVE to give gifts. Christmas provides an excellent opportunity to give--family, friends, teachers, neighbors and so on!
4. I LOVE the focus on Jesus and the story and miracle of his birth. Nativities everywhere, angels all around, all of the celebration pointing to the precious little babe! This year has been so fun talking with the kids about it and seeing it really start to come alive for them.
5. I have a wicked sweet tooth and so my last item on this list is Christmas treats! I LOVE them. All of them. Chocolate? Sure. Peppermint somethings? Okay. Cookies? Pass me the plate. Oooh...special Christmas candies? I suppose I'd better at least try them! :) I skip many meals during the month of December so that I don't have to skip the dessert trays!
