When it comes to Christmas Music, do you enjoy Traditional Christmas tunes, Classics from artists like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, or from more recent artists like Michael Buble, Kenny G, Harry Connick Jr, etc. There are Kids Christmas Music CD's available, Disney Christmas Music Collections, Country Christmas Music Collections, Celtic Music Collections, Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas Albums, and more.
SO many great movies in the Christmas Movie Category that I don't know if I could even select just one as my favorite! I think my favorite has changed over the years, depending on the season of life. I have many Kids Christmas Movie favorites, such as Charlie Brown, The Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph, The Polar Express, etc. I love Elf, National Lampoon Christmas, Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Jingle All the Way, Gremlins, and Classic Christmas Movies such as A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, Meet Me In St Louis, White Christmas, and of course, It's A Wonderful Life . You can also find many of your favorites by searching Disney Christmas Movies, Hallmark Christmas Movies, or Lifetime Christmas Movies.
In recent years, I began packing away my favorite Christmas Books with my holiday decorations. It helps me keep them all together, and as I unpack each one every year, it makes me smile, thinking of the story inside. I like being able to enjoy them over the holiday season before they get packed up again on New Years Day. I do keep my Bible out year round, and can read the Christmas Story in it at any time, but I also enjoy children's book versions The Story of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Carol, Charlie Brown Christmas, I Smell Christmas, The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas. Don't forget, the Elf on the Shelf too! There are many wonderful Children's Christmas Books to choose from!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters
This is a hard category for me, because I LIKE Christmas sweaters, haha! We get an invitation to wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater to at least one party per year, so it's the perfect time to wear something that I LIKE, even though most people think they are ugly :) There are some that are a bit much for even me, but we all have our own unique taste in apparel, so to each their own. Find something you like and secretly (or proudly) enjoy it, or something tacky and hideous and wear it with pride.
If you are wanting to decorate a Christmas tree you can use anything and everything. Christmas trees can be simple or elaborate. Some trees have popcorn strung on them and others have ornaments. If you are planning to place ornaments on your Christmas tree eBay is a great way to find ornaments that is within your budget. Picking out ornaments take time.
