    Important holiday for me is Christmas also. I like the season of baking, gift making, shopping, etc. My hubby decorates the outside of the house with Snoopy decor & puts the artificial tree up inside. I decorate the tree inside and the inside of the house. Here in Central TX we have had snow on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.

    Happy Thursday to you!
    I think you are talking about
    Hale Theater’s play, we go
    to them for most of their
    plays, so good! I do like
    Christmas with all the
    beautiful lights out on
    houses. We have a date
    night where we drive
    around looking at them.

    First of all……Congratulations, Taunya, on your Blogoversary!!! You are a bright spot to all of us and a visit to your blog is a delight.
    How very sweet of you to offer sweet gifts to let us celebrate along with you. What an awesome giveaway you have today. Wow!!
    Christmas is the most important holiday to me, too. It’s a time when we can reflect on the gift of God’s son, Jesus, coming into the world to be our Savior. One of my favorite traditions is playing handbells in the community Christmas concerts down in town. It’s a real commitment to be down there to practice each week starting in October, but it is such a gift to be able to play those marvelous instruments. Our whole family has been involved in past years, but now it is just my son and me who play with the group. What a privilege to share in this experience with him, too.

    Dang, this is a very hard question to answer for me, ever since we moved to Arizona we are so far from family that most holiday’s are just another day for us. When the kids were little Halloween and Christmas were the most important holiday’s to me because I loved seeing the joy on their faces when they were out collecting candy or opening the gift that was at the top of their Christmas lists.
    All holiday’s were always all about the kids for me and doing everything that I could to make the holiday’s were special for them.

    I have to concur with the majority and say that Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love that Christmas is a season onto itself. There are so many little things leading up to the special day that I enjoy: sending out cards, choosing and wrapping lovely gifts for friends and family, listening to the music, decorating the house… I usually watch White Christmas at least once during the holidays because it’s one of my favorite movies!

    It has to be Christmas for us! We live far away from our family so we always travel home for the holidays! We always have a big turkey with all the trimmings, and a lot of holiday spirits! But before we go, my husband and I always go to the Parade of Trees! It’s a charity event where local businesses decorate Christmas trees on display in the park. Since out winters are warm here, we love walking through the park and looking at the trees!

    Congratulations again on your blogaversary!
    Take care!

    Over the years, our favorite holiday has actually become Thanksgiving. For years and years, it was Christmas, but as we’ve gotten older, and our kids are raising kids, we’ve come to love Thanksgiving, with so many wonderful foods and aroma’s, the blessings of family being together, and the lack of stress over gifts, decorating, etc.

    Christmas is a big holiday for our family as well. When my kids were small it was filled with school and church celebrations, lots of crafting and baking, and family time. We took the opportunity to teach our children about a lot of different religions and sampled some of the traditions of other cultures in the days leading up to Christmas. My grown children still remember those times with great fondness .About 5 years ago we began donating to our local Rescue mission for their annual Christmas dinner and plan to help serve this year as well. I find that being of service to others is the perfect antidote to the overly commercial aspects of the season that sometimes overwhelms me! Congratulations again on your Blogaversary and thank you so much for your generous giveaway!

    Wow, thats one generous and gorgeous giveaway! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!! I think Xmas is the one we love the most in our house. The kids and I always decorate the tree together on December 1st and on Xmas Eve I do a lolly trail from the kids beds to the Xmas tree. And even though Max is nearly 9yrs and Phoebe 10yrs, they still both believe in Santa. Phoebe is always asking me though whether its just us leaving presents, so this will probably be her last year but its been wonderful keeping the magic alive!!

    Christmas is the season and holiday that I love best. I love the decorations, the lights, the carols and the reason for the whole kit and caboodle – Jesus’ birth. My own tradition is to have chocolate before breakfast! It has become the tradition to have Christmas Eve at my son’s house (his wife is Polish and Christmas Eve is their Christmas Day) with traditional Polish dishes and Christmas Day dinner at our house with Roast Turkey.

    I actually love every holiday for different reasons. I have two little girls and so every day is a new adventure for them. Holidays are great for teaching about new customs and history, and for crafting and spending time with friends and family. Christmas is my favorite time and we have fun decorating our tree with ornaments from my childhood. The girls get a new ornament each from each grandparent and we always make sure the date is added to it somewhere so we can remember when we got them. I hope to pass these ornaments on to them when they have their own homes! Congratulations on your 4 year Blogaversary and thanks for the giveaways and craft inspiration.

    I used to say that Christmas was my favourite but things have changed so much because of our disabilities that sometimes I just feel rotten or depressed over Christmas. My family are no longer close to where we live and, to be honest, I am dreading it this year. Crikey you really didn’t need to hear that hun – sorry!! Enjoy your blog-aversary huni and I hope to be back soon in a much better mood Karen xx

    Christmas is by far my favorite holiday! I love all the decorations and excitement. My holiday tradition for the past 20+ years is to make at least one clay ornament for my tree. Each year it’s a trip down memory lane as I unwrap each one. A new tradition is to make each grandchild an ornament to hang on the family tree with the intention that when they move way from home the ornaments will go with them. Their new trees will have 18 or more ornaments of memories.
    (I will begin making these ornaments soon. I’ll let you know in case you want to make one!)

    My favorite is Easter because Jesus rose from the dead, and life wouldn’t be worth living without that. We don’t do big things to celebrate it besides go to church and have a nice dinner. I do love Christmas too!

    jerrie says:

    Oh Taunya, this is a cruddy answer but, it seems like over the years my holidays have been tarnished with bad memories. Deaths of parents around the holiday, etc. I hate to be a Debbie Downer but I have no answer for your question.

  18. 18

    I am equating “important” with favorite. My favorite holiday is Christmas. It’s a time for family, fun, food and especially the birth of our Lord. Christmas is the one holiday that the whole family tries to make a priority to get home. Family is very important to me. I don;t often have all my kids together so that’s very special.

    I looove Christmas, too! Love shopping for all of my family and picking out gifts that suit each one. We have a tradition of Christmas Eve night with my in-laws at our house (hubby and I cook) and we spend a weekend before or after Christmas with my family in my hometown (3 hrs away). Such a fun blogaversary you have going on! Congrats!

    Hello, Taunya! Going through my emails and I thought I would come over and answer your question! No news on the contractors yet but super busy getting ready! I think it would be Christmas for me as well. We have a couple traditions. We love to drive around and look at all the lights and Christmas displays. Some people go all out and it’s fabulous! Our other tradition is a family dinner on Boxing Day at my brother’s house and everyone in the family is there. It’s the only time we’re all together – it’s the highlight of our Christmas. Great blogiversary celebration, my friend!

    Hiii Taunya, hope you’re well!! I had forgotten to come by your blog to help you celebrate! I’ll take some time out this weekend. Stay amazingly sweet! <3

    Like you, Taunya, I love Christmas, from the preparations leading up to the season (so many cards yet to make…and the two Advent Calendars for my niece and nephew!) to our travels to either my mom’s or my husband’s moms’ to the always heart-warming, touching Christmas Eve mass, to the day itself…filled with the warm, enveloping love of family and the decadent delights of the Christmas feast. Of course, this will be our first Christmas without my dad (he was in the hospital last year…), but we will celebrate. He’d want us to, whether we’re in Edmonton or Kelowna. The spirit of Christmas…makes my heart sing! You’re a gem, my dear!

    Christmas for me. We spend a lot of time reflecting on what Christmas is really about and I love the spirit of sharing and giving. It’s a time we really spend together:) Our tradition is reading about Christmas:)

    Well….I am a wee bit late but my favorite holiday is Halloween. I love orange and black, I know it is a silly reason but it makes it lots of fun.
