Halloween was the kickoff to what is always a crazy two months of back-to-back holidays. Now we’re getting ready for Thanksgiving, and after that, we’ll barely have time to catch our breath before Hannukah/Christmas followed by New Year’s.
Despite it’s business, I love this time of year, though I think it has more to do with the cozy atmosphere than anything else.
What about you; What’s YOUR favorite holiday?

For me, it will always be Christmas. The lights, the decorations, all the food, friends, and family. Plus, I love making and giving just the right gifts. I love to make people happy <3
I love Halloweeen, even though here in Australia it is hardly celebrated. My family does not really celebrate it either, but we do buy lollies for the small amount of trick or treaters that come to our door. The one thing that I have always wanted to do, is go to America to celebrate Halloween 🙂
I think I have to say the days leading up to Christmas, right through to New Year’s Eve. With both of those holidays and two birthdays in between, it’s a totally festive time of year in my house.
Although I think this year the holidays may have kicked into gear a little too early. I was in Starbucks last night and they’re in full fledged Christmas mode already – complete with a decorated tree on the counter!
I love Halloween! As an actor, I just think it’s so much fun to wear a costume and play a part for a day. Though I do love Christmas too!
I nearly voted for Halloween! LOL When my children were all home and growing up I always loved Thanksgiving and Christmas, but now I find them sad. They’ve grown and gone away to different States, and have children of their own: NYC, Boston, Las Vegas, CA, and Lousiana! I can’t be in all those places at once. Now I content myself with Halloween and send packages to my little grands..and read YA fiction with spooky substance!!
I hope you get to spend the holidays with at least one of your kids, Deborah! I’m desperately hoping mine all settle nearby when they’re grown.
