Can't afford to go home this year, but my favourite part of the holidays is always being able to spend time with family and friends, going to Christmas markets, and enjoying the Christmas cheer from lovely maritime strangers!

Wicked offer @Tiana_V you did it again.

My favorite part about the holidays is on the 25th my entire family (including extended family) that live within the GTA, all get together and spend the entire day at my uncles house. We have breakfast, lunch, and dinner there. We play games, we watch basketball, we have loads of fun. I look forward to this day every year because it's about being together and enjoying the time. I think we all need to remember that not everyone gets this opportunity and we should be extremely thankful that we can enjoy days like this. Be thankful, take advantage that you can have days like this with your family, and most important, laugh and create memories for all.

My favourite time is Christmas Eve. As a child it was very exciting as we would spend it at my Grandparents home having a wonderful family support and the children were allowed to open their gifts from Grammie and Grampie. Always so exciting to get to open a gift it two before Christmas.
