What's Good About Christmas?

Today's Tuesday meme is 10 great things about Christmas.

  • work goes away for a few days, but we know (hope) we have jobs to return to afterward
  • my parents will be here!!
  • my children's moods and behavior are exceptionally lovely
  • lots of fires to sit by and warm-up
  • new recipes to try
  • board games
  • hugs from most every friend I see
  • the music
  • the joy my children have in giving to me
  • the way my child insists that we start the day by singing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus.

Now, what have I left out? Any ideas, SITStas?

I think Christmas breakfasts seem to taste especially good. Coffee, coffee cake, pigs in a blanket, breakfast casserole ... Do I sound like a fat guy talking here?

This is a sweet list!! You did not mention the traffic shopping and grouchy folks. Oh, nevermind...you meant the GOOD stuff.
Is SITS a new holiday that I was left out of?

Love your list and it's just perfect...with the addition of Checkered's request.

Thanks for your inspiration and encouragement on my blog. I really appreciate it. It means more than you know. LOVE YOU.

What board games do you like?

Marshmallow Circus said...

My kids sing Happy Birthday too. I love that! :)

What a warm feeling your list conjures up and that's not just because I might be having a hot flash.

The thought of board games and a fire, of children and family, with songs and food just sounds wonderful.

all wonderful things that make Christmas special!!! spending time with family around a fire playing board games in always fun!! one thing we do is read a bit from the Bible and say a prayer thanking God for Jesus before we open presents :)
