Many things!! 😁😁 Lots of great nostalgia from music and Christmas movies, and I can’t lie and say I don’t enjoy getting presents. But I also gotta say I adore the family time.

I love Christmas because of all the good memories of family time. 💗

I love Christmas, the family gatherings, the food, the music, the warm cozy feelings, and the reminder to enjoy what time we have with loved ones.

I like that Jesus was born and hearing the story over and over.

My own birth is not nearly so special. I was just born in a hospital, mum had already my sister so I wasnt really a miracle, and no angels announced my birth either. Also, I had juandice so a few hours after being born I turned yellow. Mum must have freaked out. As she had no milk I was bottle fed. Otherwise, if you ask her about my birth so doenst want to talk about it much. Must have been painful.

Its a miracle Im still alive. I reckon. somedays I think she looks at me in disbelief that I was sent here to torment her.

Twenty two years ago on December 24th I brought home my son in a Christmas stocking. He had been born December 5th, six weeks early, and had been whisked into the special care unit. For weeks I watched him through the walls of an incubator. He couldn't feed and had to be tube fed. He dropped from five pounds to four. I was afraid to touch him for fear I'd break him. The worst day was being discharged home without him. I had been visiting my mom in Victoria when I was rushed for an emergency C-section. We were both in serious condition. Tonight I think of all the things that seemed so dire and am grateful beyond belief for the things that didn't happen. Today, Christmas Day, is the anniversary of being able to bring my baby home and have the privilege of motherhood. Each year I know I received everything I could have wanted for Christmas. I am so very thankful.

Susanna, I know you said don't post if you don't love Christmas. But I don't love Christmas and I'm posting anyway. :p Please forgive me for this.


Personally, I'm not a fan of Christmas. I prefer....

OK I'll ask. Why? Why don't you like Christmas and why the preference for halloween? What element of Christmas irks you? I understand not liking fake cheer and consumerism. I also see the beauty and power in the actual message and what it means. As for halloween I think you wrote that to provoke a storm of people going nuts in reaction, a touch of the troll, perhaps.
