Melanie at Jellybean Angel gave me this award. I love Christmas! So thanks Melanie!
So here is what I love about Christmas
Anticipation both for gifts I may be getting and for the joy other will experience from my gifts. I still can't sleep on Christmas Eve because of this.
The Christmas story
Nativity scenes
Christmas lights
Joyous times with family and friends
All the goodies
The romance- I think it is one of the most romantic times of the year. What is more romantic than snuggling by the fire with Christmas lights and music. I even got married at this time. In fact today is our anniversary. 19 wonderful years.
Here are the rules for Christmas award.
You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.
The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas.
You must link back to the person who gave you the award.
You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas.
If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space!
Pass the award along to as many people as you like.That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going!
Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.
I am letting my recipients know privately first so in case they are busy and don't need to add one more thing to their to do list they have that choice without other knowing. I'll put them on when I hear back. The lovely Jacquie at Tallgrass Prairie Studio, and the beautiful Kris at Quilted Simple have accepted this award.
Merry Christmas!
