Christmas is fast approaching.. When I wake up this morning I felt the Christmas breeze and I began to be excited about Christmas. I look forward to many things like decorations, food, presents and many things.. But when it's Christmas I get most excited about wrapping presents for my loved ones and I'm excited to see their reactions after they open my present.. What about you? What do you look forward to when it's almost Christmas?

I actually looking forward my 13th month and bonus pay this Christmas. You have to admit it, for every working man or woman, its the one thing many of us are looking forward to received. I'm looking forward also for the gifts my wife and kids gave to me. No matter how cheap they are, its worth the price as it comes from their hard earned savings.

As soon as Halloween is over Christmas decorations go up in all the stores. Christmas music begins to play, in the isles, and the olde money grab is on again for the season. Its all about money! Christmas sales make or break many shops, and its all about giving gifts that nobody wants, and making it seem like a Christ-like experience. There are plenty of people out there who actually Hate Christmas, and would never dream of giving an unwanted Christmas gift. Christmas Cards are abhorant, and christmas decorations in the home can be dangerous. Oh what a relief when the New Year finally arrives, and people can get their lives back once again.

Many people have bad memories that's why they hate Christmas.. But Christmas should be the season to forget all that bad memories and feel blessed because this is the day that Jesus was born for us.. Enjoy your Christmas..

I so love the christmas season. While others feel sadness when christmas time comes, I feel happy, relax and at peace. Probably because I have always had good memories during christmas. Since my dad worked abroad before, christmas time is the only time he comes home to us. That means, going to duty free to buy chocolates and imported goods and best of all, I got to spend time with my dad. Now that he is gone, I still look forward to christmas because now I have my own family. I now have my son to spend christmas with. Now it is my time to give gifts to him just like what my dad used to do before with us. Christmas time is a season I associate very well with family. Reunion, outing, get together. All in christmas time.

Christmas has been my favorite holiday since childhood. I have always looked forward to it. I enjoy decorating around the house, putting up the Christmas tree and holiday baking. When my children were small we left cookies and milk for Santa every Christmas Eve. i also enjoy going with family to Christmas Eve service at church. Some people get the blues at Christmas. I try to see the christmas season as a sign of hope.

I think the happy, peaceful and joy environment itself during yuletide season. Christmas season is the happiest season of my life because it feels as though I am back at being a child again surrounded with innocence and fun. I love everything about Christmas from food, gifts, gathering and reunion. Everything seems wonderful and bright, a joyous feeling and expectations only Christmas can bring.

I am looking forward for Christmas with lots of interest and energy. This is my first Christmas after marriage. Now, my husband and I live in different countries due to our work. He is coming down to my country to celebrate Christmas with me and my family. I am so excited about it. We have kind of decided about the gifts to get for my family and his family. He will reach here on 23rd December. I can't wait.

My favorite thing is to put up a tree and decorate it. I love wrapping presents. Then getting ready for Christmas dinner and opening presents with my whole family. This is the most exciting time of the year for me and my family.

The cool breeze, the ambiance is really pleasant during Christmas time. I'm so excited about the gifts. The food in the streets, because you'll find the best delicacy of my country during this time. Music carols... my family and relatives who visit us even they were far from us.

I have to allot money for the season. It is the time of celebrating - giving gifts, preparing festive foods. As early as now, I am making a list on what to give my family and friends. For me to give them something special, I have to budget more. lol

Hi, Mielshare! I love Christmas so much and I look forward to almost everything. The fun of going out shopping for gifts, planning what to do, putting up the Christmas tree and decorations, going to celebrate Mass during Christmas eve with my beloved hubby and family, unwrap gifts session, food, gatherings with family, friends and relatives, and there are just so many things that I look forward to Christmas! And, yes, I am also looking forward to just watch at the wonderful color lights on the Christmas tree.

I love this time of the year. During this time of the year I bake cookies and hand them out as gifts. I also make fudge, as well as ornaments and decorate wreaths. I love opening gifts. I love decorating the Christmas Tree and seeing all the wrapped gifts. My cats go crazy on Christmas Morning. They climb into their Christmas Stockings and pull their toys out. Last year my cat Blackee got stuck in her stocking. I had to take her out. It was funny.

Well Christmas always stresses me out there never seems to be enough money to get everyone everything they want. I also hate wrapping presents with a paassion. I am so glad my nieces and nephews are all old enough to get money now. That saves me hours of wrapping time. I like baking cookies, I like decorating the tree with my kids, I enjoy getting together with my husbands family, but I especially love getting together on Christmas Eve with my family, because my sister lives far away and her and her family always come to visit at Christmas time and we get to see them so that is my favorite part of Christmas.

I just enjoy seeing everyone come together for the day, even the ones who get all liquored up and passout on the floor. Watching the little ones opening their gifts and the excitement I know they feel because I still can remember it. The smells, the food and everything else that goes with it...it just makes me so happy for that one day.

I love the food, decorations and snow! But, I think the kids anticipating Santas big arrival is what I look forward to the most each year. They are in their own little world and really believe that this pudgy man is going to magically appear in their chimney. It just amazes me and I love it!

I first think of the Crib Decoration, Cattle Shed, Mary, Baby Jesus, hay stock all that fascinates me. I feel I have gone to those days. Then, Christmas is not complete without a Christmas Tree and Stars. Then comes gifts to near and dear ones. I try to give variety of gifts each year and will not repeat the gifts. I also like to buy Santa Clause doll, it is an inspiration for me to give gifts to others. Then comes sweets, Christmas Cake, new dress, meeting relatives and friends etc. All these things will be there with me giving Christmas feeling for another 15 days after Christmas.
