To Kids From One to Ninety-Two

I¬†know I’m not alone when I say that there’s something so incredibly magical about the holiday season. As soon as the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone, the end of the year is welcomed in all the best ways; lights illuminate houses everywhere, warm cookies emerge from ovens, the smell of pine ruminates in living rooms, and pristinely wrapped boxes of all shapes and sizes sit expectant by the fireplace.

Despite the finals and the projects, the chill brought about with the coming of December brings on a feeling of excitement that few other things can rival. They say that it’s Thanksgiving that’s supposed to remind you how thankful you are for everything you have but I think it’s just a kick-starter for the whole season. Christmastime is all about spending as much time as you can with family and friends – enjoying each other’s company and just appreciating that you have one another.

So, in the spirit of giving and sharing – here are a few of my favorite holiday things.
