    1. They are very hard to resist, especially the fudge. I attended a holiday lunch for the hospice volunteers and one member brought homemade fudge. Absolute heaven! But terrible for the hips and thighs at my age :)

  5. Having children young enough to still get super-excited about Christmas. Hosting Christmas lunch and having my family all around me enjoying abundance that we all contributed to. Opening presents! Putting up the Christmas tree (my son contributed that favourite). Gingerbread reindeer.

  7. The peace of Christmas Eve
    Christmas lights

    Christmas movies
    Time with family

    I put family time last because of all of the fighting between relatives. Family gatherings these days just end up being awkward.
