My Favorite Christmas Items...

Hello readers!

Today's post involves my favorite items that are Christmas-related over the years. 

Sitting here at my laptop, hot cocoa in hand, I am stuck pondering as to exactly what are my favorite Christmas items. 

Decorations-wise, I lovelovelove the lights. On the tree, on the bannister, just looking at the pretty twinkling lights feels like Christmas to me. 

Gifts over the years....It's been 28 years so far, that's an awful lot of gifts to consider and even remember! Off memory, I suppose getting all the seasons of Smallville was a joy to open (as back then that was literally the ONLY TV show I cared about), pretty much anything Superman related... like a Supergirl anime figurine from a now ex-best friend, ummm...the robe my now husband bought me for our first Christmas together as a couple; all the presents my mom has given me throughout the years that have Dad's name on them, but he never honestly had a clue as to what it was. 

Truth is, while I am a collector, I have come to find that it feels a whole lot better to give than to receive. Keep that one in mind. Always. 

Merry Blogmas!
