I don't know about other countries but here in Italy some places like malls and the like are starting to get ready for Christmas time. Yesterday I went out to buy some food and the supermarket already had a selection of cakes and sweets for Christmas, including the 10.000 calories cakes covered in 10.000 layers of chocolate that I pretended not to see unless I wan to send the holidays at the hospital :D Aside from that (man, this keyboard is broken and I always end up writing HAT instead of THAT lol), what are your favorite things about Christmas ? :D I like snow !! although we hardly get snow on Xmas (it always snows a month before the 25th or right on the following day lol) I love snow, I like silence when it falls down from the sky and I like to go out playing with it even though I'm 30 but who cares, I still build snowmen and I'll do it even when I'm 80! I like decorating the house, spending time with my family, playing board games all together, watching Christmas movies and cooking sweets, biscuits and cakes with my mother :) I like going out when colorful lights are on, shopping for presents and sending out cards to my cyber friends. I even like when websites decorate the graphic in a x-mas theme lol I'm a very christmas-fan person ... you ? :)

When I was a child, of course the gifts that I am receiving! I associated Christmas to opening of gifts. I looked at it as the 2nd wonderful day of the year (number 1 is my birthday). As I grew older, I see Christmas differently. I got matured and valued Christmas as the time for being with your love ones. And that is the thing that I like best about Christmas. It serves as a magnetic force that brings all members of the family stay together.

my same thoughts :) as I grow up I realize how important my family is and since my parents are getting old, there's no way I'd ever miss the possibility to spend Christmas together :)

Spend time and show how important your love ones to you not just during Christmas but all year through. We really should have make the most of our time. It is better that way than to regret those days when it is already late.

same here, when it snows I feel we've been blessed with such a present because normally we'd hardly ever get some :|

I like the Christmas because we will be decorating our house with colour papers,compete to keep good cribs and stars than others. Going with Carols to many neighboring houses. The night masses in the church. Shopping and gifting others.This is a time to cheer.

do you sing Carols yourself ? I think that's a great thing and it fascinates me, too bad there's not such a tradition in my country

meeting with the family is the best thing, especially because we're always so busy that it's hard to have such meetings when you also have to go to work, pick up kids at school and so on :)
