Preferences (Of the Christmas Variety)

One of the things I love about the holiday season is that everyone has their own preferences as to what makes it perfect. And though it can be fun to "debate" who's preference is better, what really matters is what makes the season special to you and your family. Below I listed a Christmas meme of sorts. Feel free to answer all, some, or none in the comments below. Or if you have an other answer to the choices I listed please do share!

real tree or artificial
colored lights or white
flashing lights or nonflashers

I'd like to wish you all Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year!


  1. When my kids were growing up we used to make tons and tons of Christmas goodies, put them on plates, and then go Christmas caroling to deliver them. Then when they got older and most had moved away we did the 12 Days of Christmas where we'd choose a family in the neighborhood that wasn't doing so well and anonymously gift them a little something each day for 12 days. The kids loved the stealth aspect of not getting caught. =D

  2. I love both of those traditions, Donna! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
