I'm one of the folks looking forward to Christmas and the whole Christmas Holiday season to be exact. I love it. It's my favourite time of the year. I love how folks decorate, the traditions, the baking, the music too. I don't mind when folks say Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings because there's Chanukah, Kwanza and Christmas all being celebrated, it really doesn't phase me considering they are all going on around the same time, I just simply reply Merry Christmas and keep on smiling joyfully! I like the winter, the sunrises, the sunsets, and the in between.
I stumbled on this list of Christmas questions on a tumblr blog and figured I'd give it a go! Sorry, I failed to note who I pilfered this from.
