"People have long thought me crazy because
of my love affair with snow. ...
And Christmas? Well, Christmas just isn't
the same without snow. I love the way a heavy snowfall
wraps the view outside my window like a sparkling gift."

December is one of my favourite, favourite months of the year. I like the short days and having sunset at four in the afternoon. I like cold, snowy days. And, I love that my favourite time of year -- Christmas -- is right in the middle of it. I like that so many people get all excited about Christmas celebrating with family and friends. It used to be just a day or two we observed, but now it's become a month long festivity. And why not? It's good to have nice things to look forward to -- we don't have to try to stuff all its goodness into one day.
So, in these days leading up to Christmas, I'll be sharing a few of my favourite posts from Christmases Past. And because we can't have Christmas without presents, we're having a Giveaway Draw which I'll be sharing this coming Monday (Dec 3rd). To enter the draw, you'll need to leave a comment on the Monday post.
So, let the count down begin ... here is a list of my Christmas favourites.
Wishing you a happy day,
