Today’s prompt is:  Why you love, or dislike, the holiday season.

In my part of the world Christmas in Summer is probably what you would call the holiday season. I like it for one reason, it brings my family together and it has become part of the tradition for my children and their kids to spend it with family.

It’s a special time of year, my kids when they were little loved the excitement of the preparations, the decorations, the visiting with family and especially the gift giving.

My family at one point stopped giving gifts to the adults and gave that money to a charity we favoured.

This year I look forward to my kids and their kids descending on my place Christmas Day evening to celebrate another Christmas together.

  1. I loved the family Christmases. Sadly we are divided and it is no longer possible.

    Having kids away at college and one in his own home, I really treasure holiday time with all my kids and grandkids together. It doesn’t happen nearly enough! 🙂

    In other countries, you don’t have Halloween in October, Thanksgiving in November and Christmas in December. You’re fortunate. New Year’s Day, Easter and Christmas are the major holidays we share together, but you understand why we don’t celebrate a Queen’s day. 🙂
