What is your favorite holiday and why do you prefer it over all the others?
I love Christmas. I love that the theme of Christmas and the celebrations seem to start Thanksgiving night and run all the way to New Years Eve. I love the lights, sounds, and smells that are associated with Christmas.
Fourth of July! My family always takes their vacation time and we all camp together. There is about 20 of us just hanging out at the lake for a week.
Christmas, and pretty much for all the same reasons Jenn listed. I love the whole "holiday season" from November through January, with Christmas being the best Also growing up Christmas was always about lots of family getting together...which unfortunately we don't get to do that often anymore, so it loses something for me, but I still love it.
Thanksgiving. It's the only holiday we celebrate in a big way, and now have traditions for. My family meets up and I just love seeing my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. and see how the family is growing with the addition of boyfriends/girlfriends, spouses, kids (just Aasha for now, though!).
New Years Eve --its DH's and mine "anniversary" of first kiss and when he asked me to marry him
Miles' birthday. For obvious reasons, lol.
Mine is kind of made up!! I love the first day of spring. I love the flowers and the warmth and the colors!! We got married in February and I still had a bouquet of tulips.Plus I get flowers every year on the first day of spring which is lots of fun.
I love Christmas & pretty much for all the reasons Jenn listed!
Jenn: soon the end of the Year from Deacon Birthday to your new baby birthday and WHATEVER in between will be the best holidays (same for Ashley)
Florian Birthday is the most important thing for me .. I am not much "holidays" thing anyway
Mine is Christmas also, but it's the season like you guys all said from Thanksgiving (which usually includes Gabby's birthday) all the way through New Years. I love that there is always something going on and the excitement of what's to come. The traditions and decorations and the anticipation and the food. I love it all!
