    I really enjoy the music at Christmas– and the sugar cookies!

    I am interested in the Christmas pack :)
    Not only do I love the music and the baking. But the smells, I think I look forward to the smells all year. I like all the spices and the tress. They make me feel warm inside and help recall all my childhood memories. Now that my kids are a bit older I look forward to the look on thier faces seeing all the magical things that there are to see.

  6. Fruitcake. It’s all about the fruitcake.

    (and if you laugh, it’s only because you have NEVER had my mama’s fruitcake!)

  7. anne

    Each year we make homemade Latkes and applesauce and have family and friends over to celebrate this enjoyable time together.

  8. Maryellen Goodwin

    It has to be Christmas. Now that our kids are having their own kids, it’s wonderful to see the wonder & delight in their tiny faces. From the lights & gifts to the happy warmth of family gathering together.

I am a reading teacher and currently reading and reviewing every holiday book I can get hold of to write and publish an article in 2009 prior to the holiday books being put out for sale so I really hope I win! Thanks for the chance!
    That said, my favorite thing about Christmas is being with my family as we are spread all over and so many of us are gone now that it is THE most important thing to me!

  22. I would like to be entered for the Christmas pack PLEASE.

    My favorite part of the holiday season is the feeling of anxiousness on Christmas Eve. When I was younger, I would pace around all day waiting for time to push itself forward. My mom would try to keep me busy filling out Christmas cards and baking; still it couldn’t keep my mind off Christmas. It was that smiley day where you walked on egg shells because you didn’t want to get knocked off the nice list right before the big pay off. Its the all day Christmas Movies and visits from random people dropping off packages that held these magical presents that could baffle you all day long. I still get that feeling, even though I don’t have a bed time, and I know who Santa really is. I get excited for my smaller cousins and remember what I felt like when I was in their shoes.

  23. oh yeah my email address is wiledout00(at)aol(dotcom)
