It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I swear-the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year!  Everything is cheerful and happy, people are in good moods, there is a wonderful sense of charity in the air and everything is just buzzing.  I just love it.

This weekend was spent knee deep in holiday preparations with some shopping, some baking, and my tree was purchased, set up and decorated!!  I feel incredibly festive and ready for the season.  Though it probably hasn't hurt that the only tv I've been watching has been holiday movies.

I felt that this quote summarized my feelings well:
"There is nothing under the sun better for man than to eat, drink, and be merry. Go, therefore, eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with cheer." ~Ecclesiastes 8:15

How do you get ready for the holidays?
