"Christmas is by far my favorite holiday: the music, the food and (hopefully) snow.  There are certain traditions I look forward to every year like watching It's A Wonderful Life, enjoying a late and decadent Christmas Eve dinner with dear neighbors, eating streusel right before opening gifts on Christmas morning and playing Trivial Pursuit on Christmas night with friends and family (with good natured cheering and jeering).  I'm looking forward to sharing these experiences with my 2-year-old son and creating new traditions with my own young family in the coming years.
