I love this time of year. The colder weather, the Christmas themed printable worksheets, etc. that I can add to our regular homeschool curriculum, the family gatherings, the joy I see in my children. It’s not all about gifts with our family. They GIVE more gifts than they receive, and that is something that warms my heart most of all.
The day after Thanksgiving is usually spent sleeping (I’m a Black Friday shopper, lol) and putting up Christmas decorations. We inevitably have broken ornaments and things we forgot to pack up last year, which ended up somewhere else in the house. We start planning which cookies we want to make for family and we finally start listening to Christmas music. Yes finally. Our satellite radio company started with the holiday music in the middle of November, but I wouldn’t let anyone listen to it until after Turkey Day. :)
If you celebrate Christmas, what is your favorite part about the kickoff to the holiday season?
