christmas traditions

Christmas is most definitely one of my most favourite holidays.  The lights, the family, the traditions, the FOOD.  Everything about it just makes me so happy.

For some reason, I didn't really ever get into the Christmas spirit last year.  This year, however, I'm bursting with Christmas spirit.

Maybe it's because we went and saw White Christmas with a couple of our very dear friends.

Maybe it's because we've got Christmas carols playing almost constantly.

Maybe it's because I've got an almost full bottle of Baileys in my fridge right now.

 Who knows, and it doesn't matter because I'm just so happy with this season right now.  The quiet nights spent in the glow of Christmas lights, watching our favourite movies of the season, while sipping on some Holiday cheer bring back that magical feeling that was always present during December when I was a kid.

These are my Christmas traditions.  Quiet, simple, but still so magical to me.  It's all about putting your precious and special ornaments onto the tree.  Carefully wrapping the gifts you lovingly bought for your family.  Turning off the television and spending time with your loved ones.

Merry Christmas!
