Christmas truly is my favorite time of the year. There is something magical about this time. The lights, the decorations, the ornaments, a child's excitement that Santa is coming, snow on the ground.
One of my favorite memories from my childhood involves Saturday mornings. We'd all pile onto my parents bed and sing Christmas carols before we got up for the day. The one of the last things that we would sing is "Twas the Night Before Christmas". Now, years later, I am reading that book to my girls and my brother reads it as part of our Christmas Eve tradition.
