Anyway, I started going through my Google Reader while I was watching the show and saw that Melissa at 320 Sycamore was hosting a My Favorite things party. I always enjoy seeing other's favorite things. I thought I'd join in today too and show you my favorite Christmas things.
1. Black Friday
I LOVE shopping on Black Friday. My mom and I shop together so standing in line to pay isn't so bad since we have each other to talk to. We go a few hours after the stores open so we can still get the "doorbusters" but don't have to wait in line to get into the stores (and most of the crazies are out of the store by then).
2. Shopping for and wrapping presents
I have the best time shopping for Christmas presents. Sometimes it's a little frustrating when I have no ideas for a particular person but I still love it. I also really enjoy wrapping presents.
3. Peppermint Hot Chocolate from Starbucks
I suppose this is more of a winter treat but I only drink it in December so for me it's a Christmas treat.
4. Driving around looking at Christmas lights
Definitely one of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season. I'm not so much of a fan of seeing the blow up baby Jesus in a manger next to a Tigger on someone's lawn. But, bad decor is still good because decorated houses just make me happy.
5. Watching Christmas movies
A few of my favorites include It's a Wonderful Life (can you believe I saw this for the 1st time only two years ago?), Christmas with the Kranks, The Santa Clause movies, and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
A few of my other Christmas favorites include baking Christmas cookies, listening to Christmas music, and putting out the Christmas decorations.
Thanks for hosting Melissa!
