There are plenty of signs that the holidays are coming.  The nights get darker earlier, the weather starts to get colder and in some parts of the country it's already snowing. City streets are decorated with lights and garlands and store windows are embossed with snowy scenes.  With Thanksgiving now passed, how do you make the holidays fun and keep the spirit running through the end of the year?

For many of us the holidays is a time when we return to a childhood feeling but there is always opportunity to introduce a new tradition for you and your family.  What do you like to do to make this time of year special?  It's so much fun to go out for coffee or have wine with old friends or perhaps you go ice skating or take winter walk.  If you love crafts or cooking there's such a huge variety of fabulous recipes and projects you can make and thanks to the internet the new and creative ideas for the holidays are endless.  For some of us, making popcorn, kicking back and watching a family movie is the perfect way to spend family time together.

We'd like to hear your favorite, most creative or best loved holiday tradition or a review of your favorite holiday movie.

To be entered to win one of our prizes this week, simply create a review for a holiday movie or share your holiday traditions in the comment section below.  Maybe you'll get some ideas to add to your family favorites this year!

    The Saturday after Thanksgiving we all bundle up and go downtown to the annual Christmas Parade. Afterwards we drive the light display around the shore of the lake that benefits a local charity. Then, home for Homemade hot cocoa and the original Miracle on 34th St. This is my favorite family tradition and the official beginning of our holiday.

    Our family has 2 traditions.(1) Every year when the Santa Claus parade is broadcast on TV, we bake ice box cookies. (2) On Christmas Eve, we all watch Scrooge with Alister Sim right before we go to sleep. Merry Christmas!

    My favorite holiday tradition is taking off the day after Christmas to enjoy all we received and to remember the fun the was had on two such busy days with my daughter.

    We have several holiday traditions: (1) I bake and make all of my Christmas goodies the week before CHristmas. Christmas Eve is the first time we actually eat them and we do that by the light of the fireplace and Christmas lights. It is during this time that our two teenagers exchange their gifts. (2) Taking an evening to ride and look at Christmas lights. We pack coffee and listen to Christmas music. (3) Our daughter always hangs the last ornament on the main tree. It is a golden reindeer that she has LOVED since she was a little girl.
