Thursday Thirteen: Christmas Likes (and contest)

I decided to spend this Thursday thinking about all the things I like about Christmas.
 
 
1.) Holiday Contest. I'm have a great giveaway HERE check it out!

 
 
2.) Other author's Holiday Contest. Adele Quinn is holding a contest to celebrate the Holidays and her debut release Hands On with Secret Cravings Publishing. Check it out HERE
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My daughters Zombie Gingerbread man
3.) Gingerbread men.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
4.) Christmas Carols. Especially when sung by Michael Buble
5.) The tree.
6.) Christmas cartoons. Who doesn't like Rudolph and Frosty?
 
7.) The movie White Christmas.
 
8.) Wrapping paper. Hey, don't laugh. It's shiny and colorful.
 
 
 
 
 
9.) Christmas books. I did one a few years ago. 8 Ways Onto The Naughty List.
 
10.) Cookies.
 
11.) Christmas Lights.
 
12.) Spending time with my hubby and family. This weekend we'll be decorating gingerbread houses, and making crafts for the tree with my sister and her kids.
 
13.) The best thing about Christmas is that my kids are finally old enough that I don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn. I'm guessing they'll make it until nine before they wake up.

I enjoy Christmas lights. I like to have them indoors and light them for hours after it gets dark, and just sit in the room and relax in the multicolored glow. It soothes me.

I don't have kids, but I remember really loving when I could sleep in and not go out of my mind the night before with excitement. I knew I was a little older when that happened; it was a touch of bittersweetness in the holiday. (I've been an old fogey for a while, now. LOL!)

Happy Belated TT!
