    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.

    The holidays, to me, mean spending time with family and friends.

  3. Jamie Desjardins on September 2, 2010 at 9:10 am

    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. 🙂

  8. Sheri on September 2, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Love these cards!!!! It would mean a lot to win them seeing I have no idea how to make them!!!

    To me the Holidays means being with you family and loved ones. It’s not about the gift givng it’s remebering the reason why we celebrate Christmas and Jesus.

  12. Jane on September 2, 2010 at 9:15 am

    For me the holidays means spending time with our family. It is also a time for us to remember that you get in life what you give.

    Pretty simple question…holidays means family and vacation!! My family from the US comes to visit me in Brazil!! Looooove it!!

  14. Aishling on September 2, 2010 at 9:16 am

    The holidays mean spending time with my family :)Taking lots of photos in the summer months.And spending as much time as I can with my little 1 and a half year old cousin and photographing him as he grows up 🙂 I am already following mcpactions on twitter and I already like MCP Actions on Facebook but have just started following Photography Cafe on both twitter and facebook now 🙂 And I just retweeted the competition on twitter http://twitter.com/fluffyVW/status/22796794330 and on my facebook http://bit.ly/cMoJFI:D

    The holidays mean celebrating the birth of Christ, spending time with family and friends, and letting all the stresses of life go by the wayside…. it’s the time of year that I can spend uninterrupted time with my family, not putting the kids off because I have images to process!

  16. Erica on September 2, 2010 at 9:19 am

    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!)

  36. Tina on September 2, 2010 at 9:25 am

    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

  37. Heidi on September 2, 2010 at 9:25 am

    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 .

  50. Michelle on September 2, 2010 at 9:30 am

    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!

  53. Noelle on September 2, 2010 at 9:34 am

    The holidays are my favorite time to be with my family and loved ones. A time to contemplate what is most important to me.

  54. Ashley on September 2, 2010 at 9:35 am

    For me, the holidays have a special place in my heart for we get to see friends and family we don’t have the option of seeing throughout the year. We truly make the most of each second.

    The holidays to me are the wonders of the lights and decorations through the eyes of the kids. The anticipation of finding just the right thing to make for a special person. The smells of baking and the sounds of carols. The love and the laughter of the time spent with loved ones. The holidays are magic.

    I love those cards! To me, the holidays mean spending time with my immediate family. As a family of 7, we are always going in opposite directions. The holidays give us a chance to regroup and hangout with one another. Last Christmas we were snowed in with 2ft. of snow outside and it was wonderful.

  101. Sylvia Brogdon on September 2, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Already fan of both MCP Actions and Photographer Cafe on FB. Just added both to Twitter account. 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.

  102. Jennifer on September 2, 2010 at 10:05 am

    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!

    The holidays definitely mean family. It’s all about spending time with loved ones, slowing down, and making memories that will last a lifetime.

    For me, the holidays are a time of renewal. It’s a reminder of how great the world can be. A time for sharing and giving yourself to a greater cause, helping out others in need. Its a time to celebrate famiy, friends and God in all there greatness! A time for peace, forgiveness and LOVE!

  138. MelissaU on September 2, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Holidays to me are about family and photos 😉 Oh, and a bit more time to slow down and appreciate everything you have. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a fabulous giveaway.

  140. Giselle Giroux on September 2, 2010 at 10:42 am

    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 are an the perfect opportunity to create family memories and traditions. No matter what we do, they are a time to be together with loved ones.

  145. Melissa Grooters on September 2, 2010 at 10:46 am

    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.

  146. James Haverstock on September 2, 2010 at 10:49 am

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

  147. Sheryl Lochridge on September 2, 2010 at 10:50 am

    The holidays are a special time to spend with family & friends. Cooking great food and having parties and taking photos. Sitting by the fire with hot chocolate and enjoying the Holiday Decorations inside and out. Playing secret Santa to the people to help them with their needs.

    Holidays have always been the time for warmth, smiles and sharing- even if sharing meant just simple card with few words. It spreads the love to know you are remembered and that some are remembered by you.And- let’s not forget about tree- it has to be live one and fill the whole house with nice holiday smell!

  164. Natalie on September 2, 2010 at 11:05 am

    To me the holidays are about reflecting what’s important in life. Cherishing every moment with those whom you don’t get to see as often. Remembering past holidays and those that have left us and to look forward to new memories made with those that have just arrived.

    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!) 🙂

  194. Debbie Branda on September 2, 2010 at 11:41 am

    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.

  195. Stacey on September 2, 2010 at 11:43 am

    I loved the “traditions” of the holidays when I was a child. Now I have young children, and we are starting our own traditions. It’s an amazing experience to live through your child’s eyes. The holidays also represent a time to start new. The snow, the cold…it reminds me to live life and love as much as I can while I’m still here. 🙂

  201. Elizabeth Albarran on September 2, 2010 at 11:46 am

    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.

    Hard to believe we are talking about the holidays already (: But not really… it seems that every year they become more hectic and crazed!However, what is better than gathering around a Christmas tree, egg nog in hand, fire in the fireplace & singing carols with your children and family? Nothing. Nothing so satisfying and peaceful (:

  245. Crystal on September 2, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Holidays to me=Lots of super fun family sessions, lots of good food and company. Playing games while drinking hot cocoa, the smell of evergreen and cinnamon candles. All the kids tearing open gifts in their pjs.

  246. Stefanie on September 2, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    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!

  247. Jenny on September 2, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    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.

  250. Dawn on September 2, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    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 🙁 ) So, we make the holidays very big and important for our kids!!!!

  266. Heather G on September 2, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    The Holidays mean a lot to me! It means more time for family and friends, time for giving, and to be thankful of what God has given me and my family!

  267. Holly on September 2, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    The holidays mean to me spending time with my family and friends. I only get to see most of them once a year, so it’s a great time of the year. My most favorite time of the year, to see the exictement on there faces, I just love it.

    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).

  271. Avery Holder on September 2, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    Love time with the family at Christmas, when the photography sessions are over and I can really finally relax with my family! We have traditions and they are so much fun!

  272. Catie Hickman on September 2, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    The holidays are a time to celebrate love and togetherness. And also a time for fun!

  273. Melanie on September 2, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    The holidays are such a busy time but all the work is so worth the special bond that is strengthend as our family comes together. I wish during these moments that I had the ability to make time stand still. I do have the ability to REMEMBER and it is those memories that create anticipation for the next round of holidays to begin!!!

  274. Laura on September 2, 2010 at 12:32 pm

  277. Stephanie Conrad on September 2, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    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!

  278. Kelly Russell on September 2, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    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.

  294. Judith on September 2, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    The holidays to me mean giving. I love going out and giving to complete strangers. Even small gifts are so meaningful and to have my boys do it with me is even a greater gift than anything in the world.

  295. Laser on September 2, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    Holidays mean family to me. It is a time when we can be together.

    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.

  303. SteveA on September 2, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    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.

  304. Michelle Tanner on September 2, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    I love the holidays because we come together as a family, eat lots of great food and see the magic through my sons eyes.

  305. Amanda Chafe on September 2, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    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 for me is a time for the family to get together and eat way too much (that includes the 4 legged family members as well – they enjoy the leftovers or the pieces that “accidentally” fell off the table)

  311. Kirsti Fleming on September 2, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Holidays to me are the one time busy families can finally get together and remember…my favorite is when my Grandpa (Papa) gets out all 12,000 of his slides and we start from 1953 and watch and laugh and hear stories. There is no better gift than memories!

    Holidays mean family to me. We can get caught up in everything else, but if I’can’t be with at least SOME of my family for the holidays, it isn’t the same. Pictures help lessen some of that… Love your holiday templates!

  319. Diane Schuller on September 2, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    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.PS: I’m already a fan on FB for MCP and PC but I hate twitter so won’t join over there :~)

  324. shari on September 2, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    Holidays mean Christmas. And Christmas means celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, my Savior. It is my favorite time of year because we decorate and celebrate and make beautiful memories to help us remember how much God loves us and sent his Son for us. He is the ultimate gift of love.

  334. Cristen Farrell on September 2, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    The holidays for me have always meant family. As the years pass, my family seems to move farther and farther away from each other, but they ALWAYS make it home for the holidays. Having your loved ones close is the greatest gift of all!

    Magic. There is no better word to describe what the holidays are to me.

    First and foremost, the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Secondly, I enjoy spending extra special time with my family. We don’t have a lot of it due to my husband’s frequent deployments to the middle east. We missed our 1st Christmas last year in 18years. Looking forward to Christmas 2010!

  347. Jen Johnson on September 2, 2010 at 2:11 pm

  356. Lauren Davison on September 2, 2010 at 2:34 pm

  358. Kate on September 2, 2010 at 2:49 pm

  365. elyse on September 2, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Holidays mean FAMILY! I know that is a pretty common answer, but it is the only time of the year that all the people I love are together. It can get crazy, but I cherish the time. And we take a horribly embarrassing family photo in matching clothes 🙂

  366. carrie on September 2, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    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. =)

  378. yari vera on September 2, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    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 special to me because i’m one of the many that got engaged at that time of year. the reason my husband chose that time to propose was to give me a reason to like christmas. it’s always been a rough thing with my family, so it was a great way to start the holidays out good as a new family together. the holidays to me mean a fresh start.

    the holidays mean time in jammies, relaxing mornings together with the family 🙂 going to church to celebrate Christ’s birth

    To me Holidays are about family and spending as much time as you can with those that you loved. It’s a time to make memories that will last a lifetime.

    Holidays mean family. Christmas specifically means Christ was born and then later died for all mankind.

  410. Poupee on September 2, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    The holidays are a time for family togetherness. And a time to think thoughtfully of friends.

  411. TracyWB on September 2, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Holidays mean hot chocolate, candy canes, decorating trees/doors/mantles, listening to Johnny Mathis, and lying on the floor in front of the tree with my family.

    To me, the holidays are all about love and family. It’s Xmas, which is also my husband’s birthday. It’s our anniversary, which is also New Years Eve. And our oldest son’s birthday is January 7th. It’s a busy time of year, but it’s full of friends, family, good times and plenty of lovin.

    When I think of the holidays I think of: time with friends and family, Christmas cards with great letters, hot chocolate and Christmas carols, snow ball fights first thing in the morning and sledding after dark, and a million other little things that make me wish we could have all year long…well I do play Christmas carols all year long which drives my husband crazy. 🙂

  417. Julia Cantley on September 2, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Family and a time to give thanks for everything .For me it is also a time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us.

  421. Laraine Davis on September 2, 2010 at 7:11 pm

  426. Amy Dungan on September 2, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    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.

    The holidays are all about family for me. I’ve lived on the opposite side of the country from my family for the last 6 years, so there is a lot of traveling involved between my family, my in-laws, Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. But it’s always worth it to be close to them!

  458. Annette W on September 2, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    The holidays for me are a special time but it is also a tragic time. On December 20th, 2003 I lost my only sibling to complications from epilepsy. He was 26 years old. So Christmas is especially dear. I spend every Christmas with my parents and family. They visit me and we get through the holidays together and remember my brother and are grateful for each other.

  459. Courtney Middleton on September 2, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    The holidays mean warm pajamas on cold mornings, the smell of cinnamon and peppermint, more than the average amount of smiles, forgiving more and complaining less.

  460. Jessica Tanner on September 2, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    The Holidays mean a lot to me. Jesus Christ is our Savior and I am excited to celebrate his birthday! Also, This is the first year that my 2.5 year old daughter might actually know who Santa is! Spending time with Family and eating great food also scores high on my list!

  461. Jamie on September 2, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    The holidays mean family, and enjoying each other’s company. Sharing what you haven’t seen throughout the year and big meals. Being lazy and enjoying the snow!

  498. AMY GREENE on September 3, 2010 at 12:04 am

    The holidays are a gift. Some people think the gifts are the holiday, but it’s the other way. It’s a hope for love, friendship, peace, excitement, and a reason to live. This gift of hope is God’s gift to us for loving his son.

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. 🙂 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!

    To me the Holiday’s is Celebrating the Birth of Jesus and family.

    To me the holidays are all about the gift of Jesus and lots of time with my family. Can’t wait!

    The holidays mean lots of baking my favorite sweets for my favorite sweets, family, food and joyful memories.

    “”What 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.

    I love the holidays and the get togethers with families, good food and good times! And I love giving to others gifts that make them happy.

    Holidays are my time with family I never get to see during regular times of the year! We have a blast!

    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.

    The holidays mean to me…Nostalgia, food, family, fun and a healthy dose of stress.

    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.
