December is one of the best months of the year. At least it is to my kiddos.
I’ll admit, it’s not really my favorite but when I see their excitement I have to smile and put in the list of the top months.
Here are the Top 6 Reasons We Love December.
#6 – Snowy Days – one of the reasons my kids love December is that the snowy days begin. They just can’t WAIT to play in the snow. Snowmen. Snow ball fights. Snow forts. It’s all fun for the kids. And usually my husband 🙂
#5 – Hot Cocoa – Cold weather and snowy days brings hot cocoa. My kids love having a warm mug of hot chocolate after playing hard in the snow. This is one of the reasons they love December – hot cocoa. And don’t forget the extra marshmallows!
>#4 – Fun Scarves and Hats – My daughter LOVES wearing hats and scarves. She is a fashionista of sorts and December just gives her a whole new accessory line to work with. She is forever finding new hats and scarves to adorn with this outfit and that. Fun scarves and hats make December a fun month.
#3 – Spending time with Friends – Another great reason December is great is that we spend more time with friends. Holiday parties. School celebrations. Christmas field trips and dinners all make December a time to see friends, spend time with them during the fun holiday festivities and enjoy the company of our friends.
#2 – Holiday Giving – Another reason we love December is holiday giving. Not just the gifts we buy for each other but ALL the giving. It’s everywhere. December is the only month every year that you see people giving almost everywhere you go. Churches are collecting for people in need. The Salvation Army is ringing their bells. Food pantries fill up and people are serving meals, delivering gifts, and being kind to one another (most of the time) making December a wonderful month for giving.
#1 – Spending Time with Family – The best thing about December is the holidays and getting to spend time with family. Spending time with family that visits; that we only see a few times a year. And spending time together at home. Dad has more days off work and we spend more time together doing fun things. That is the #1 reasons we ALL love December!!!
