    My favourite thing about the holiday is the feeling it gives me, spending time with family and friends. And I just love those black nights with the ground covered with snow and the world not dark, but lit with lights everywhere.

    My favorite thing about the holidays is doing all our family traditions with my husband and kids.

    P.S. Just started Learning Into a Wish and am enjoying. Wish I could go wine tasting now.

    Christmas celebrations no matter how small or grand never fails to make me happy. The spirit of the holidays itself is my favorite thing about the season.

    I love seeing the decorations on people’s houses. In my neighborhood people go all out and I just love it, especially when it gets dark so early, all the lights are like little beacons

    <y favorite part of the holidays will be the time I get to spend with my grandchildren and my great-grandchildren. The year goes by so fast and everyone is so busy that this is one time we have to be together and enjoy each other.

    Christmas Eve dinner with my entire family at a local restaurant. Everyone is done shopping, wrapping and decorating so we just focus on each other and enjoy the morning to come!

    Decorating and the gift giving. Even though it can be a little stressful I like the while process of it from the shopping/deciding what best to get for person and finally watching them unwrap it and their reactions.

    I love the decorations, not decorating but looking at them and the lovely lights, the holiday movies and sweets >.<

    Read this last week and LOVED it – adored Ryan and Danny!
    My favorite thing is our annual roadtrip from Texas to my family in Alabama. We’ve gone every year since my youngest was 3, so 12 years now. It’s a great week with family and the kids love it. A close second would be the annual cookie exchange/brunch I host every year – everyone looks forward to it and the competition is pretty fierce!

    Congrats on your novella, Lane. One of my fav things is having “Christmas” dinner with my chosen family. Sadly, some of us still cannot go back to our given families; but since I came out 15 years ago, I’ve gotten to know this group of supportive friends and formed a bond where we share our Christmas spirit in a special way that brings us together, for each other.
