My favourite part of holiday season is off from work and spend more time with my family.


Most of my families are in other side of the earth and there's 12 hours time difference. When I'm awake they are sleeping and when they get up to work I have to go to bed. Although I cannot flight back to my country as Chritmas holiday is as short as one week, I can call them and vedio chat with them anytime without worrying about the time difference.

Decorating the tree while playing Christmas music is my favourite part of Christmas.  Each decoration has a story and a memory.  Gathering around the tree with family and friends is what makes Christmas special for me!

My favorite part of Christmas is Christmas Eve.  After delivering presents everyone ends at my grandmothers (approx 30 to 40 people).  We sit around sharing memories and there is always a "glimpse" of Santa running by the window for the little ones, who then race home to get in bed before he arrives!

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

The food!

My favourite part is giving and getting gifts

What I enjoy the most about this holiday season is definitely spending time with my family and friends. It used to be about shopping and gift giving, but, giving your undivided attention and time to your loved ones is probably the best gift.
