I have always loved Christmas and get right into lights and decorations especially now I have kids.
But thinking back to when I was younger we never did anything on the day just had a big lunch with the same people I see everyday and we only had a simple tree. So I don't really know where I got my love of the season from!
And even now we dont have family close by we can easily visit so my kids wont get to play with their cousins.
So what made/makes Christmas special for you? Do you do any traditions as a family?
This year I am trying the elf on a shelf and we look at xmas lights and donate food and gifts to shelters.
