The Top 10 Best Things about Christmas

There is so much to love about Christmas. There's just too many great things about this wonderful holiday.

Don't get all upset if you disagree with us, just Share your own Top 10 List in the Comments!


The Top 10 Best Things about Christmas


10. Snow christmas snow

Snow comes in at number 10 because while it's a fun thing for having snow ball fights and for going sledding, it is also a terrible nuisance. The snow mires roadways and grounds flights around the holidays, often separating families and loved ones from one another. So for each snow man built, remember, there's someone who is cursing at the snow somewhere too.


9. Shopping christmas shopping

Another double edged sword on the countdown is shopping. There's no denying the thrill of buying new things for yourself and others, but the sheer madness of going to the store, whether it be on black friday or not, is a bit much. Still, shopping leads to presents . . ..

8. Christmas Trees decorated christmas tree

Fake or real, these are an essential part of the holiday season. Christmas trees are a sign of the times and again, an essential aspect of getting presents (what else would you find them under?). There's almost too much to be said about this great feature of the holidays. They look amazing when decorated, fill your home with a lovely pine scent, and pique the curiousity of dogs and cats.


7. Santa Claus St. Nicholas

I know what you're thinking, 'How is Santa number 7?' Well, for adults, the importance of Santa is sort of lacking. Don't get me wrong, we still love him, but only in that he's such a magical figure for children. We hold nothing against that jolly old elf and delight in all he does. Don't think we forget that time he brought us the G.I. Joe missile launcher we'd been craving.

6. Christmas Parties office christmas party

Whether it be with family or at the office, 'tis the season to get together for some food and drink. Christmas parties are a great way to everyone to unwind and really enjoy the holidays. And there's always a number of parties to attend. So if you really like a good party, especially one with a holiday twist, this is a highlight for you.


5. Holiday Music holiday music

This fits perfectly right in the middle. Like numbers 9 and 10 on our count down, Christmas music can begin to be more annoying over time. Afterall, in many areas it is playing for a solid 8 weeks leading up to the event itself. But there's no denying the simple joy these songs bring as you are driving to a family gathering or decorating the tree. Everyone has their favorite Christmas song.

4. The Excitement of Children christmas family fun

This is a very unique entry on the list. But kids get sooooo excited for this holiday, unlike any other, that it's worth mentioning. It's like Beatle-mania strikes them every year and it's rathering interesting to see. They are so given to the idea of this magical person bringing them special things that it drives them crazy at times. Assuming you are relatively detached from kids, it's actually pretty fun to watch and sort of warms your heart to see pure innocence at work.


3. Presents christmas gits

A lot of people would put this at number one, but you know there are better parts of the holidays. It doesn't take much to explain why presents are great. You get gifts, a healthy mix of things you both want and need, and what's to complain about? Both giving and receiving is quite enjoyable. You know that feeling you get when you anticipate someone opening something you felt was a pretty clever purchase. It's not often we are confident of our gift purchases for others, but when we are, we relish in that moment they open it.


2. Family christmas family gathering

Love them or hate them, this is a time of year for family (in-laws too!). Family is one of the best parts of Christmas because they are yours. You only have one family. And even though life often pulls us in other directions, it's the special times of year like Christmas which bring us all together. No matter where we are in the world, finding our way home for the holidays is a feeling unlike any other.


1. Food christmas meal

Yes, food. Food is the best thing about Christmas and the holidays in general. And you know I'm right. Everyone loves the feasts we prepare at this time of year. There are dishes prepared for Christmas which you won't see at any other time all year round. And best of all, the food isn't just a one day event. There are gatherings in the weeks prior with extended family and friends, co-workers and neighbors, all of which are highlighted by food. Food fills us up and puts a smile on our face when we load up with the side dish we love. Cheesey potatoes anyone?
