Default Whats your favorite thing about Christmas and/or the Holidays

My co-worker asked me this the other day. His answer was the electricity in the air the first day you go shopping after Thanksgiving. Holiday music playing, tons of people everywhere. Just a great energy.

My favorite part of the holiday season is a two-part answer.

1.) Getting a gift for someone that they really truly like. Not just a fake smile and thank you, but either something they really wanted, or something they're legitimately surprised they got.

2.) How people are more generous.... myself included.

Happy Holidays ISH.

For me it is the food. My grandma is the greatest cook ever and every year I stuff my face like a motherf*cker. And then leftovers for days

My number two would be your number one though bankshot.

The food and the family. Couldnt care less about the gifts anymore. If my cousins had kids (I have four girl cousins), I feel xmas would be a lot better. I have four older cousins who are women from age 22-31 and neither are married or have kids. What are the odds?

I've honestly grown tired of the whole gift and shopping stuff.

Generally food is my number one, but because its only on one day while the season lasts for a month, it will be on #3.

This year I'm serving a double-smoked ham, and a take on a turkey recipe I read in Bon Appetit magazine.

I'm calling it a Newcastle-Brined Turkey with a Molasses-Balsamic glaze.

Honestly I'm to the point where I could care less about receiving gifts, but there's something about getting something for someone that they:

1.) wouldn't buy themselves
2.) in the end would really enjoy

I put a lot of thought into my gifts... and i really enjoy it.

Getting shitty at Christmas parties and embarrassing my entire family.




Only kidding, I probably like the fact that I can feel like an innocent kid again at least for a little bit.
