12 Days of Christmas {Day 7} : Spending Time With Loved Ones

ChristmasWhiteLightsAmong the ribbons, presents, trees and lights I believe Christmas is about spending time with the ones we love. Time for slowing down and enjoying the laughs, wonder and surprises that surround Christmas. Starting new and continuing old family traditions. One of my favorite past times, growing up was piling into my grandpa’s car  during the holidays and heading downtown to the neighborhoods inside the belt-line. Packed in like sardines the five of us would drive around admiring all the Christmas lights that hung at each house. We would be quick to yell out our favorite ones and even the ones that might need a little extra guidance from Santa. We had so much fun! If you are up for a treat and really want to see a yard decked out in all its Christmas glory – from 401 head west on Ten Ten Road. It might be a drive but it is well worth it oh and don’t worry you won’t miss it.  Whatever you decide to do this holiday, make sure spending time with friends and family are on top of the list, even if it is driving around to see houses lit up with Christmas lights.
