So as far back as I can remember I've always loved the holidays, whether it be St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween or Christmas. There's something about themes and decorating that get me all worked up (in a good way of course!). Here's just a little list of why I love the holiday season. (DISCLAIMER: None of the following pictures are mine, they are all courtesy of Google)

1) Putting up Decorations
There's nothing like putting up the Christmas lights, setting up the tree, hanging the stockings, and decking the house with all sorts of Christmasy decorations to put you in the Christmas spirit! I absolutely LOVE putting up all the decorations because the inner-interior-designer in me can't help it! Now I'm not saying I'm a pro or anything, I just genuinely enjoy decorating our house. (-: I always dream about the day I get married and get my own house just so I can set it up how I want.

2) Being Around Family
This is the one time of the year where my family has an excuse to get together, since we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, and it's really nice. With my three older siblings in California, it's really nice to be able to see them at least once a year, and it makes the holidays that much more exciting! <3

3) Holiday Food!
I think this one is pretty self-explanatory but I can try to explain it anyway. I love that there are certain foods/desserts/drinks that are only around during Christmas time like eggnog, candy canes, and Christmas pudding! It just makes Christmas that much more special. c:

4) Giving/Receiving Gifts
This one is pretty obvious too, I mean who doesn't like getting presents?! However, although I do love receiving presents, I enjoy giving presents a lot more. I even like making homemade presents and cards because it helps me exercise my creativity and it's something unique that no one else will probably have. I just love seeing the expression on peoples' faces when they get a present; it just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! ^_^

5) Holiday Cheer
One of the biggest rewards of the holiday season would have to be the holiday cheer that is present! (: Almost everyone seems a lot more chipper and happier than any other time of the year. There's just something about the holidays that seems to bring everyone together. Holiday cheer is definitely one of the biggest perks during the holidays!

And there's my short list of my favorite things about the holidays. What do YOU like most about the holiday season? Let me know in the comments below!
