H Is For Holidays

Which holiday is your favorite?
We have many holidays in Canada, that not everyone shares. And there are some holidays in other countries that I heard of, but have not had the chance to see.
Easter is this month. Which is a holiday for Christ, but also a time when Lilies are around.

I love Christmas for the same reason. Christ, that is. Plus you get so much wonderful family time that is hard to pass up! Decorating with them is a tradition that I love.

I love Thanksgiving, where I usually have turkey dinner twice.

The benefits of having two families!
They are always what I am thankful for.
Plus I have a love and fascination for Halloween.

To see the kids all dressed up, having the time of their lives. All the pumpkins carved with wonderful faces. Just a wonderful night for all.
But most of all, and call me egotistical, that's okay, I love my birthday!

I personally think it should be an international holiday, but haven't got the world on my side quite yet.
I am a December baby. Yes I'm Suchacrabbyass, (Sagittarian). In case you are wondering.
So there ya have my faves. Though I left a few out, if I named them all I'd look mildly crazy. Better if I keep my feet planted on the ground, and my head out of the clouds!

  5. Hi Freda,

  6. Christmas is my favorite and the only one I decorate the whole house for.

  7. I enjoy all the ones you named except perhaps Halloween.
    We always have a great cook out with the family on July 4th, Independence Day for us in the USofA.

  8. I love holidays in general. Birthdays are great because they mean cake!

  9. My favourite holiday is Christmas.

    See my homepage on my blog ( to see my Christmas Counter; located on the right side.

  10. Gotta agree about Easter and Christmas for the reasons you say, but one of my favorite holidays of all time is Thanksgiving--good food and fun family time with lots of relaxation. When I was a kid I loved Halloween too. My candy would usually run out during Thanksgiving weekend.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

"Emily, it’s me. You.

By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that."
