Weekend Question Open Thread

Well, it's the holiday season, so I figured this question is a good one.

What is your favorite part of the holiday season and why?

There are a ton of things, from decorating, to time off, to the end of it for those who don't like it, etc...

If you have more than one, that's cool - share it all!  :D

seeing the decorations - it makes me feel festive - jovial even, and the time off. i work a lot, and if Christmas and New Years fall on a weekday, i actually get them off. so this year, yay, i have a holiday!  :D

I used to love this time of year, but as the years go by, circumstances changed, I'm looking forward to the beginning of January.

Sorry, but I am.  There were so many, many things I used to love about this time of year, but not anymore.  Granted, I get a twinge here and there for this and that, but it's fleeting.

January 2nd is hump day for me... picking up the pace towards spring and summer ;)

I like Christmas lights and cold weather.

Right now the weather feels disgusting to me and not like the holiday season at all. OH well. Maybe I'll break out my Christmas Story Lamp anyways. :P

I used to enjoy those days when the streets were snow-covered

but I've noticed that over the years that happens less and less and hasn't since 2010, I think. This is the warmest it's been in all 6,000 years of the Earth's history and I have no idea why it might be.
