    Pulling out the decorations that I grew up with and remembering the times spent with those family members that are no longer with us. They always feel closer at this time of the year!

  2. Jean says:

    Love the music, lights and all the decorations. Gathering with family and traditions.

  3. Latisa Dionne says:

    I love turning out all the lights. Gathering the kids and GrandAngels around the tree and reading the Christmas story from the Bible to them. This is always a magical time for our family. Everyone is quiet and listening ….. magic happens in my heart every year.

  4. Evelyn B says:

    I love being with family the most. Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. Darla Zimmer says:

    I like best at Christmas, that my family gathers to share a potluck meal and just plain old fun.

  6. teresa heinz says:

    spending time with family will have two grandchildren to spoil this year !!!!!

  7. Sharon P says:

    I love spending time with my friends and family!

  8. Trudy Lindemann says:

    I love preparing for the holiday by baking, decorating, shopping and making gifts. I have not had the time to make gifts like I have in the past and I really miss it! But nine little grandchildren that keep me busy make it worth it!

  9. Faith Anne says:

    My favorite thing about the holiday is that I find people are kinder and more generous. Of course I sort of demand it because I always smile, wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and hum Christmas caroles when I shop. I love to make and give gifts for my family and friends.

  10. Polly Monica says:

    Family! It’s family time!! No matter the hustle or bustle, it’s time to spend at home with our loved ones!!

  11. Cynthia Ewer says:

    I love the way the season jumpstarts my creativity! With gifts to make, I spend more time surrounded by my fabric than ever … and better still, I love the free time that comes my way when the holidays are over. Each year, my best Christmas gift is a shot in the creative arm.

  12. Carmen says:

    I love my family’s annual drive through area neighborhoods and seeing Christmas displays. I remember doing this with my mother and father, now passed, and my brother when we were children. I have carried this tradition on with our children.
    Thank you for the fun giveaway. God’s Blessings!

  13. Nancy DeVenuto says:

    Favorite part of Christmas is family!!!!

  14. Sue Goodin says:

    My favorite thing about the holidays is the smiles on the kids and the elderly.

  15. Wilma says:

    Christmas is my favorite time of the year. As much as I enjoy family celebrations, making and giving gifts, carols and decorations, these are not the reason for the season. The greatest gift of all, the birth of Jesus Christ, is why I love Christmas.
    Jesus is the Saviour of the world and the Prince of Peace.

  16. Rachell R says:

    Sew very cute!
    My children are just starting to love holidays! They are begging to set up the Christmas tree and lights, and love going to stores with all the decorations.
    I love just about everything about the holidays! From the yummy smells of spices and food cooking, to the rich colors and textures of fabrics and decorations, to the snow. I love the reminders of the season, to “do what Jesus would do” and work harder to love and respect other people around you. I’m trying to teach my little ones that the reason for gifts is that the Wise Men gave baby Jesus Christ gifts, and we show we love Him and others by giving gifts.
    And I really love giving gifts for the look of joy and wonder on the receiver’s face, especially when it’s something I’ve handmade, like a quilt.

  17. Melissa Korlin says:

    I love snuggling in on a snowy day to watch wonderful Hallmark Christmas movies …

  18. Sandra Strickland says:

    I love all of the beautiful fabrics and accessories. Thanks so much for this
    opportunity to win.

  19. Holly says:

    Snowflakes, sleighbells, sugar cookies, fudge, holly, twinkling lights, music, Christmas stockings and family, all bringing delightful flavor to the season for celebrating Christ’s birth. This year I am sewing new Christmas stockings for the family – a different quilt pattern for each of the stockings.

  20. Beth B says:

    I love family time. Always fun to get out the ornaments the kids made when they were little and talk about past Christmas celebrations.

  21. Caroline says:

    I love the look of joy on my grandchildren’s faces!

  22. Carol says:

    I love the planning and making a gift that’s personal, and hopefully that gift with make the recipient happy.

  23. Christine L says:

    My favorite thing about the holidays is of course the lights but I also LOVE to sew gifts for my family. Quilts for everyone. :)

  24. Dee says:

    I love gathering with family and friends to celebrate Jesus’ birth.

  25. I also love making things for the holidays to brighten those dull winter months. Sitting by a warm fire and being with my hubby.

  26. I love this button company. I have been using their buttons for quite awhile and order from them all the time. Check out my pillow with gingerbread boy buttons.

  27. bonnie says:

    I love making memories with my family, my step daughter and grand children are here on weekends and we shop, bake cookies, decorate gingerbread houses, make basket and mug gift packages, decorate the tree… and assemble gift bags for a nursing home.

  28. Pat D says:

    I just love the Christmas decorations. I have cut back on some of my decorating but I love filling the house with Christmas.

  29. Lynn Wilson says:

    this is just way too cute! would love to find these buttons and pins! Hope I win! If not good luck to the winner!

  30. Tanja H says:

    Decorating. I love decorating for the holidays. I decorate everywhere! In fact I keep decorating up ’till Christmas day. After Christmas, I start thinking about decorating.

  31. Pamela says:

    The best part is the reason for the season to celebrate the birth of our Christ Child. With those blessings to share with our families as we gather together and bring good tidings to all we can during this season.
    Next would be to make something dearly for my family members which I am getting started now. A bit late but there is still time. I am the procrastinator. :)
    Blessed holiday!!!

  32. Sherry Barger says:

    I love time with family and friends.

  33. Kathy Hassig says:

  37. ritainalaska says:

    love the giving and sharing, the anticipation and excitement in the air, cheerful greetings and the smell of pine and spices; all say christmas is coming!

  40. MoeWest says:

    I love it all, but I especially like to see our grandkids excitement on Christmas morning.

  41. Kristin M says:

    The giving that takes place. The sharing of food with friends and family.

  42. Sue Harris says:

    I look forward to the feeling of love that seems to exude from people all around you. The music, the smells, the sounds of bells ringing, the bright colors and special light displays help me to remember the wonderful Christmas celebrations of the past. when my family was larger and there were children all excited about the prospect of Santa’s visitation, and the adults were excited about the reactions of the children. Special Advent services, Christmas concerts and cantatas at school and church, balanced the secular elements of Christmas and reminded us of what we were celebrating. It just seemed like a magical time where anything good could happen and we enjoyed new beginnings along with the new year.

  43. Barb Colvin says:

    I love the bright splashes and glitter of Christmas decorations on gloomy winter days, but most of all I love to celebrate the birth of my Savior with my family and friends.

  44. grahamplaid says:

    The joy and creativity of the holiday season is wonderful. I see it in crafts and foods and sewing and embroidery and wood working and on and on. It is a great time of year.

  45. Michele says:

    I love observing Advent with my family, preparing for our celebration of the birth of Christ. I also love making treats with my daughters, that we then take to gate guards at our current AFB home. This year will be a most precious time with them since the AF may take Dad and Mom overseas in a few months and the girls will stay behind in college. Thanks for an opportunity to win some cute things to create with, and to remember what this season is all about.

  46. Marcia Herath says:

    I like the Christmas music, smells of baking and the Christmas Eve service at church.

  47. Sheri Zaugg says:

    I love being with family and having another excuse to sew, quilt, sew, quilt, and quilt some more!

  54. Marilyn R says:

    I love the food. It brings people together. Everyone sits down to enjoy a good holiday meal with family and friends. It’s a time to catch up on the latest events. A time to remember what the reason for the season is all about.

  55. Kathy O in GA says:

    I love the magic of the season, and the magic of my kids being together when they aren’t at their “other” family!

  59. Beth McConnell says:

    What I love best about the Holliday’s is after all the baking, decorating, shopping & getting the final touches done on my sewing & craft projects all finished, leading up to that magical day that we all look so forward to every year, to celebrate the Miracle of Christ’s Birth, is that wonderful feeling I get when the moment finally arrives, when my children & their Family’s show up at my house & we have a joyous & Merry Christmas together!

  64. Joyce Baki says:

    I love the giving – because you get so much in return. The smiles of the children, the twinkle in my husband’s eye when he knows that he has found just the right gift for me or one of our children. And the music carries you from one memory to the next, and to memories yet to be made!

  68. Bessie Bennett says:

    What I love most about the holidays is getting together with my family and friends. Because it isn’t about the lights and food, or whether you get that gift you’ve been asking for all year. It is about being with the people you love, and spreading that love to others.

  69. Ann says:

    What a beautiful time of the year to celebrate with family and friends .I love to give home gifts that I have made, and they all just love them
