What I love about the holiday season...

The Music...


I can play holiday music all year long. Is that weird? I say not! I don't care! 
But I restrain myself after Valentines day and just listen to it in the car.

The Food...


A couple of years ago we went to Williams and Sonoma for a cooking demo and decided to follow all their recipes... Except for the turkey brine, we loved it and go that route. Do you know that the average person gains 20 pounds between Halloween and New Years? I think that if I lose the weight before the season starts, I get a free pass and then I'm good. Thoughts anyone?

The Movies...


I have this thing, where I watch Jane Austen during the season... It's my free pass to force people to watch it with me. Then there are all the Holiday movies that are forced down peoples throats.. The Holidays, Family Man, Family Jewel, Bridget Jones Diary and... DIE HARD!! Yup, I force it down everyones throat and LOVE IT!

The People...


I get to see my peeps during the holidays. It can get stressful and while we are all huddled together we are a hair's breath away from killing each other but we have all year to recover and then we look forward to it again!!

But most of all, I love the Hope that the season brings. Have you ever stood by and watched the kids wait their turn to speak to Santa? The shine in the eyes, the fidgeting, the joy? It's the hope that really gets me going...


This is my 16 year old nephew. 
He is autistic and this year he taught me not to give up that hope.
Go check out what the big guy told him about being too old to visit Santa here:
