'Tis the Season!

Fact Check: TRUE:

I have always had a tremendously deep love for Christmas. I begin counting down to Christmas sometime in August, and I begin listening to Christmas music sometime in October (much to the chagrin of friends and coworkers). People have always asked me to explain where my love for Christmas comes from. I cannot really explain it other than to say that my love of Christmas as a child has stayed with me as an adult. It has never left, and in many ways, has only grown stronger

Of course the commercialization of Christmas is a little out of hand, and has been for quite some time. However, that does not offset the joy and giving spirit of the season. I enjoy the season of giving, of camaraderie, and the random acts of kindness. I enjoy the endless supply of ridiculously cheesy-yet-awesome Hallmark Christmas movies. I enjoy hearing Christmas music playing in all of the shops and stores. I enjoy driving around and looking at the Christmas lights on display during a cold winter's night.  

I would be remiss if I did not mention that I also love the copious amount of sweets that I consume during this time of year (unrelated, I need a bigger belt). 

My blogging family means the world to me, so I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart.

What is your favorite thing about the Christmas season?
