  • Snowball fights
  • Family parties
  • Santa hats

  • Footie pajamas
  • Gift-giving
  • Gift-receiving
  • Siblings flying in for visits
  • Writing the letter to Santa
  • Movies (must watch list includes Muppet Christmas Carol, Elf, The Santa Clause, Christmas Carol with Albert Finney, Miracle of 34th Street (old or new or both!), Meet Me in St. Louis, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon and live-action), Jingle All the Way, Forgotten Carols, It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie and It's a Wonderful Life - it's a long list, I know, so start now!)
  • Muppet Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve
  • The annual 12 Days of Christmas story book my mom puts together

  • The stockings hung along the stairs in the living room
  • The lights at temple square
  • Hot chocolate
  • and last, and most importantly, Christ's birth, without which none of us would be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father.
