    My favourite thing to do during the holiday season is a toss between decorating the tree with my boys, and experiencing the excitement of Christmas Eve with them. They are allowed one present on Christmas Eve which is always brand new holiday PJs, then we have hot chocolate and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. When they go to bed, I recite ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas which I had to memorize in grade 2 and have never forgot!

    I love spending the holidays with my family & friends, watching Christmas movies, & looking at all of the holiday decorations.

    My favourite activity over the holidays is doing anything and everything with my family. We all have Christmas break off together (my husband doesn’t have all the days, but he works from home so is here with us), and we just love that connected family time – watching holiday movies, baking, wrapping gifts, playing in the snow if we have it (which luckily this year we do/will!), going for walks, looking at Christmas lights etc.
