Holidays are such joyful times of the year, my two personal favorites are Halloween and Christmas. Starting off with Halloween, I love all of the fall colors and smells. I remember back along time ago my parents use to take my brothers and I to the pumpkin patch. The couple things that really stand out to me about Halloween time is fresh apple cider and carving pumpkins. It use to be a contest between my brothers and I to see who could carve the best pumpkin. Now that I don’t live at my parents house anymore it’s very tough for me to get out there and find another pumpkin patch to go to. I feel like it is a family tradition and hopefully when I go home to visit my family we can make a trip to the pumpkin patch.

Now for the best holiday of the year, Christmas! I have always absolutely loved Christmas time. There is nothing better then the beautiful white snow outside your window on that Christmas morning while spending time with your family. Every year my family and I would put up our Christmas tree together, the boys would put up the lights and we would all decorate the tree together, while blaring Christmas music throughout the house. Our family Christmas’s have never been all about the presents, but honestly just for the time we have with our family. After my immediate family Christmas we always go to Indiana where all my other family lives for two more Christmas’s. I can not wait for these two holidays to come up, because then I get to spend so much quality time with my family.
