    To me the holidays mean more than gift giving. It is a time to get together with family and celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a time to be with the ones you love and might not get to see all the time. It’s about Christ and Family.

    To me, the holidays mean FAMILY. I love that I get to see all of my family in one place, there is good food, conversation and just joy! I especially now love holidays because I get to see it through my 5 y/o’s eyes, the wonder and enthusiasm that goes along with it all. It also means praising the Lord Jesus Christ for what He did for me, and how He blesses my family and I every day!

    The holidays mean something completely different to me now that I have children. I always wanted a big family. Then I married a man with 5 children and we had two of our own. Now it is all about making those days special for them. Before my children, I would dread the holidays. Now I am wanting to start traditions for them. πŸ™‚

    Without a doubt, the holidays mean family – spending time with my loved ones, enjoying each other’s company, celebrating the birth of Christ, and celebrating the end to a wonderful year and beginning of another. (The holidays also include indulging in my mother-in-law’s wonderful homemade holiday cookies — I wish I knew her secret!)

    To me the holidays,of course, means spending time with family. However after you have children, the holidays are no longer fun and games! It’s alot of stress and very expensive (especially if you have 6 little ones)! But it’s all worth it in the end <3

    I absolutely love Christmas time! Of course, Christmas is celebrating the birth of Christ. We do so by spending time with family, snuggling up with hot chocolate and a movie by the fire, watching the joy on my children’s faces as they give and receive special gifts… it is one of my favorite times of the year!

    The holidays mean Christmas at Grandma Betty’s! There are now approximately 35 of us…and we still all meet together at Gma’s. We all eat lunch, and before we open gifts, we read the Christmas story, light candles, and sing happy Birthday to Jesus. We open all of our presents INDIVIDUALLY. With two presents each, this is quite an event! And we applaud after every gift – no lie. And if you ask anyone in our family that same question…everyone will answer “Christmas at Grandma Betty’s!”

    I’m not a super religious person, so the holidays mean connecting and spending time with those you love. It’s about re-connecting with those that you don’t talk to/see often. And it’s about making new memories .

    As the newly adoptive mom (August 6th) to an eight year old who has been in our care (foster care) for the last 4 years, the holidays are all about family and making special memories. I wanted for so many years to be a mom! Our first Christmas with our little guy was rather disappointing to me…I had waited so long for a child to share the joy with. Yet he knew nothing of what to expect and had just turned 5. I couldn’t believe it! Every year since has been so wonderful – he knows the joy of so many things now! While of course he loves to open the gifts, he values the traditions even more…baking (his number one I believe!), decorating, extra, special time with family, the parties, visiting Santa, celebrating Christ’s birth. There are so many things we all enjoy! Last year he wanted a camera, which his grandparents gave to him. So now I truly have a mini me!

    I’m currently building my portfolio to start a business, and these templates are fantastic! I love Christmas cards! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    To me, the holidays mean a time for tradition and family. Getting together with my relatives and having a good time with them, taking pictures to document those memories, and trying to follow all the little traditions around the holidays that I hope my kids will always treasure. My daughter still loves that I make her cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning! All three of my children love their DVD gift exchange from each other. My mother and I exchanged Christmas pins and always gave them to each on Christmas Eve — a special mother/daughter thing between us. My mom is gone now, and my daughters and I now wear those pins during the holiday season. The holidays are definitely a time to reflect on all those little things that mean so much.

    The holidays to me means celebrating the birth our savior Jesus Christ. If it wasn’t for him we would not be here, so we need to remember why we are here to begin with. It is a time to join family and friends in good times to remember for a lifetime with good food and laughter. It I about giving Not receiving. It is about loving and caring for others and understanding the meaning of CHRISTmas!!! The holidays are a time for forgiving and forgetting. A time to rememeber past family memers and friends.

    The Holidays for me means family…everyone coming home for Christmas. Being in a family where my dad has 10 brothers and sisters scattered all across the country except in our province and a mother, whose entire family lives in Sweden, i never knew my extended family very well .But during the Holidays, that where everyone comes home, I see family I haven’t seen in forever and really, that means more to me than getting any presents at Christmas!!!
    And sending out some of those holiday cards to my friends and family for Christmas would be amazing!

    I agree that the holidays are for family but we go a step further than our immediate family and adopt 2-3 families every year to share our joy with. When joy is shared with others, it multiplies exponentially in your own heart.

    The holidays mean sitting with loved ones with warm cookies and milk by the fire, extra snuggles to keep warm and cozy, sharing stories of the past and creating stories that will someday be added to that collection, counting your blessings twice for the amazing people in your life, and cherishing your children as they encounter all the wonderful traditions that you treasured when you were young.

    Family, of course. And the remembrance of Christ’s birth, the reason for the holidays in the first place.

    To me, the holidays mean FAMILY. It’s a time to reflect on all the special people in our lives, spend time with the ones you love and let them know how much they mean to you. It’s about the birth of Jesus and focusing on the priorities in our lives instead of getting all caught up in the hussle-bussle of the holidays. The holiday card templates look amazing!

    What do the holidays mean to me? It is the only holiday out of the year that our family spends alone. It is only my husband, my children, and myself. We have a VERY LARGE immediate and extended family that we usually get together with for the other holidays, but Christmas belongs to my household only. We focus on each other, and we focus on Jesus. We give back to our community and I get my children involved with programs such as Shop With A Cop, Angel Tree, Food Banks, etc. This has become tradition, and my children have learned to be humble and to serve others. During the Christmas season, I am usually swelling with pride that I have such giving children that are willing to receive so little so that we are able to give more to others.

    The holidays, to me, mean a time to celebrate what’s really important in life: faith, family and friends. All too often work can consume us and we allow the stresses in life to interfere with our happiness. It’s a time for reflection, for relaxation, and a time about LOVE that really should be experienced throughout the entire year… (minus the 10 lbs from all the holiday baking!) πŸ™‚

    The holidays are so much more than a “holiday” or time to give gifts, or decorate cookies, not to mention the house…it’s a time to reflect and celebrate the birth of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only reason we have to celebrate! We leave the baby out of the manger under the tree until Christmas morning when we read the story of His birth out of Luke 2. Then one of us gets to place the baby in the manger at the mention of His birth in the story. It takes the emphasis off of ripping into the presents first! (although that’s what happens after our Christmas story reflection time). God has blessed us so richly and it’s only right that we give back ourselves and our time to worship Him!
    Great giveaway – thanks for introducing me to Photographer Cafe.

    The holidays to me is getting the opportunity to see family, love, excitement through the eyes of my children. I have a 17 year old and although he has a good time, I so missed watching him get all excited about the littlest of things. I now have a 2 1/2 year old little girl and I cannot wait to see her eyes open wide when she sees the Christmas Tree light up, have her sit in Santas Lap and make cookies and share all of the simple holiday traditions.

    In a word: Traditions. The holidays are such a wonderful time for my family as we perform yearly rituals that infuse a new feeling of energy and life into us. We get a real, 22-foot pine tree from Northern Michigan for our living room and spend days decorating it together. We spend Thanksgiving and Christmas enjoying family time and then getting together with friends for all-night games and laughter. We ring in the New Year with a huge group of lovely people we are lucky enough to share life with. It’s hard to put into words the sense of warmth and promise the holidays bring, but I start looking forward to the next holiday season the moment the current one ends!

    Holidays are about family. I love making special homemade gifts for my loved ones, and spending time together – eating and playing games and making memories. My favorite holiday is actually Thanksgiving because there is no pressure – it’s jsut about enjoying life and family and friends and being grateful for all we have.

    The holidays to me are special, especially when my husband isn’t deployed. When he’s actually home, I feel more like celebrating, but when he’s deployed, it’s a sad time. I love Thanksgiving b/c it’s all about what you are thankful for. Christmas is a time of giving to others w/out thinking about getting anything back for yourself. Being Catholic, I appreciate Christmas more than I did in the past.

    What do the holidays mean to you?

    BIRTHDAYS!!!! Thanksgiving means my older two kids birthdays are here (Nov 26 and 29th) Last year, my son’s bday was actually ON Thanksgiving. And my youngest was born just a few days after Christmas. So, the holidays mean tight paychecks, lots of shopping, a bit of stress…. but lots of LOVE!!! The holidays are always special BECAUSE of the birthdays!!! (Not to mention the most IMPORTANT birthday of them all!!! Jesus’ Birthday!!) Christmas is a big time around here!!! We don’t get to be home for the holidays (military family living 24 hours from home πŸ™ ) So, we make the holidays very big and important for our kids!!!!

    To me, the holidays mean a time for enjoying family and friends in their entirety without having to worry about work or other day to day responsibilities. It’s about children and their innocence, their curiosity and the light in their eyes when they see the lights on the tree lit up for the first time. It’s about making memories and carrying on traditions that last a lifetime. It’s about love and laughter and remembering those who are no longer able to be with us.
    I love the holidays because, no matter how old I get, I still feel like a little kid on Christmas morning only now I get to live it through the eyes of my daughter (2 1/2 years old).

    To me, the holidays mean: opening a care package of holiday cookies sent half-way across the states from my mom to the delight of my family with samples of all the cookies she’s baked for Christmas as far back as I can remember, opening the rubbermaid bins of each family member that are filled with their personal Christmas ornaments and watching the tree progress a little each year as the ornaments have moved from being placed only on bottom branches on the front of the tree to almost three-quarters up the tree all the way around, taking the three kids for their Santa picture with the best photographer ever and crying knowing that this “is” the “real” santa and being thrilled that I too get to hug him, knowing that with my oldest “in the Know” and with the threat I mean encouragement that she doesn’t tell the younger siblings, that she can “help” with the behind the scenes “magic” that happens the night before Christmas, the knowing that the five pine trees in the backyard have probably grown again this year and that even though I need more strands of lights to cover them, every neighbor will stop to say that they love the glow of the season that they get to share and me personally as I sit in my parka, hat and gloves on the patio with my hot chocolate in the peace of the night air with the glow of Christmas, attending Christmas Eve mass with my community wondering if we will be in the church, school gym or the mission room as we arrive more than an hour before mass but thrilled as everyone smiles, shakes hands and hugs their Christmas greetings, watching my daughter with pride as she altar serves and then catches the fainting altar server next to her (I kid you not!), calling my dad who is out-of-state so he can read “The Night Before Christmas” just as he did when they lived nearby, laughing as we hold the kids back on Christmas morning as we turn on the lights, turn on the video camera take pictures of them looking over the railing and race down the stairs for their presents wrapped in Christmas paper chosen just for them, seeing the grandparents arrive in the middle of the paper flying chaos, picking up a cup of coffee and finding a chair to watch their dividends (grandchildren) with smiles in their faces and pride in their hearts and finally gathering at the grandparents home for a celebration with the whole family!

    The holidays for us is a time to see our extended family. As a military family we miss out on having our family around all the time. Usually, we are overseas or so far way that Christmas is when we have everyone home to share all the news from the prior year. I LOVE the smiles, smells and laughter. Truly a wonderful time!

    On one end the holidays mean the end of a very busy season (which includes lots and lots of Christmas card orders!!!) And that means putting my feet up, decorating gingerbread with my kids, drinking mulled wine, playing in the snow and seeing the sparkle in our children’s eyes. On a sad note, it also means missing my sweet mom who passed away two and a half years ago.

    To me, the holidays mean family. Living far away, I only get to see my entire family in one room once a year — Thanksgiving. I can’t count Christmas, but they always pile infront of a computer to Skype with me, my husband and our daughter. I miss them like crazy, but I always look forward to the holidays to see everyone. It’s such a special time of year.

    The holidays are a time for reflection on what our past, and that of our families, has brought to us and contemplation of what the future holds. A time to give thanks to God for the outpouring of blessings we receive every day, yet often do not take the time to give thanks for.

    The Holidays mean alot of things for me. Since I live very far from my family it mean going to see them all and being with them. I love spending the months before finding the perfect gifts for them all, especially my younger sisters and seeing them light up on Christmas morning. But its also about remembering why we even have Christmas and that its a celebration of the lives we are able to live because of that reason.

    The holidays have been such an important part of my life since I was a child. I’ve passed the love and special feeling of the season to my son as well. His favourite time of year is Christmas and that’s when he always takes his holidays so he can soak in the beautiful, gentle feelings of the season. We no longer exchange gifts because we don’t want it to have a commercial feeling. It’s all about love, family, memories, music.

    Holiday means, sharing love with family & special friends. A time to enjoy the blessing that God has given us. Also it’s a time to remembered that Jesus had to born & died for us on ther cross for the redention of our sins. Jesus will always be our everyday reason to live. All honor & Glory to him! Thank Jesus for your greates gift… LOVE!

    The Holiday Season in my house is about Christ and His purpose in our lives. It is about appreciating time off from work/school so we can be together as a family. But our “season” is year-round, not just November and December. =)

    Holidays mean to me when every one stops to realize that life is more than just our daily routine. When everyone can share and care, love and give, laugh and sing. Its a time to be grateful for all that is. Holidays is unity!

    The Holidays are all about getting together with family and friends, gathering around a table filled with food cooked with care and love, observing old family traditions and creating new ones, being thankful for another year gone by and looking forward to a new year coming.

    For me, the holidays are a chance to give back. A chance to remind those you love how much they mean to you. And a chance show those in need that they are not alone. While we should strive to do both of those things all year long, the holidays seem to bring those opportunities closer and allow more people to participate.

    A time for appreciating the true meaning of life — sharing love with the world around us, and holding tight to our family and friends to recognize that we’ve already been given the best holiday gift ever — each other!

    The holidays to me means getting to see each and every family member!! Having a large family, you can lose touch over the year, but this is one time when everyones schedules stop and we can all gather in one room πŸ™‚

    The holidays mean love, laughter, joy and family all rolled into one great big ball of awesomeness!

    Where to start? Holidays are the most important thing to me it is a milestone. My favorite holidays are the ones in the fall and winter. The leaves change, the weather get colder, the smell of pumpkin pie, Christmas garland, the warm hugs from all the people you love. Don’t forget there are not a lot of holidays you don’t receive a gift. πŸ™‚ Most of all it is finding that person you love and want to share that moment in time with them.

    The holidays mean to mean family & friends around the table and in the kitchen eating lots and lots of food then regretting it when unbuckling our belts. Also, lots of laughter, poking fun at each other, & photo opportunities so we can look back and remember the moments!

    “β€œWhat do the holidays mean to you?””

    Family of course! My and my husband’s families all live in different cities than us, so Christmas is a time when we can all get together under one roof and my daughter gets to experience the chaos that is our extended family.

    What the Holidays mean to me….The joy I get as I watch my children get so excited about everything “Christmas”. But mostly the reminder that we have that we have received the greatest gift of all and that is the gift of Jesus’ birth so many years ago.

    I love the holidays! A time for great food, family time and so much laughter. Love the music during the season as well! Having come close to losing my sister in a motorcycle accident 2 months ago, will make this season even more special.
