It's that season! Even without the gifts, this is probably my favorite holiday, though I do love Halloween. I was walking around the store the other day, and had an explosion of giddiness come over me when I saw the fully-stocked Christmas isle. I realized that it is mid-November and it's right around the corner! On top of that, the first snow of the season (for my area) fell this past weekend! Time to start decorating! So. Excited. I even want to decorate my coop! My family is forgoing the expensive gifts this year because none of us have the funds to buy big things. We're pretty much just buying for the kids, but I think I'll get my parents and sister something little anyway. Other than that, I have a 6 year old boy (my cousin) to buy for I'm not sure what do get my cousin, I was going to give him a couple of chicks (he loves my chickens) but I don't think his mom will allow that. He already has so many toys, I don't want to just add to the pile of junk! haha So what are you doing for Christmas this year (or whichever holiday you celebrate)? What's your favorite part of the holiday season? What do you plan on getting each other (if you want to share)? What are some of your family traditions surrounding the holiday? My family has this weird tradition of always eating fried oysters for breakfast on Christmas morning, for one!
