I've been checking out the site for a while as well, but just joined in today. It is such a blessing to find others that share my passion for the holidays.

Yes, it's true- I even enjoy crowded shopping malls.
Yea, and more and more people also trying to be more and more politically correct. I use to get upset when i went shopping last year and people said Happy Holidays. I get that some people don't celebrate Christmas. However if you see my buying Christmas DVD's, CD, Decorations it might be pretty obvious to say
