Why I Absolutely Love the Holiday Season!!!

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is this Thursday! Last night a bunch of us went downtown for light up night. After the night was over I officially crossed over to Holiday mode and I am pumped. So… just as I did with the Fall, here are some things I love about the holidays:

Thanksgiving Dinner – Who doesn’t’ love Thanksgiving? Spending time with family, watching football… I can’t wait. I also like going for a 5-mile run in the morning and watching movies with friends at night. What are some of your T-day traditions?

Starbucks – Isn’t it great that Starbucks goes along with every season? I love Peppermint Mocha’s and Gingerbread Lattes… I had a PM last night – Heavenly! It’s one of my favorite places to go in the world.

Ice Skating Downtown – I love going to the rink at PPG with friends and ice skate… it’s so much fun.

Holiday Music Ok… so I even drag this into January – February. I love listening to holiday music. I am a huge Trans-Siberian Orchestra fan along with Josh Groban. Great Christmas albums!
A Christmas Carol/Trans Concert – I try to go to one holiday show every year (not sure about this year), but I love going to Christmas concerts and plays.

Decorating/Festival of Lights – I love decorating for Christmas as well as going to see decorations at the Festival of Lights with people.

Christmas Cards – I am big on this!!! I spend hours writing Christmas cards to friends each year… I take it very seriously!

Fires – don’t you love fires in the winter time… it always adds to the experience.

Snow – I love snow until Christmas, to play in, and to go snowboarding – otherwise I could do without it. I always think of the movie Hook when Toodles says, “It’s Snowing!!’

Those are just a few of my favorite things about the holidays. What about you? What are some of your favorite things about the holidays?
