Do you love getting presents? Do you love spending time with your family? Christmas time is the perfect time for both of them. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I not only love getting presents but I love spending time with my family. Nothing beats the warm hugs and laughter of Christmas time. "Time spent together is time well spent" my grandmother always tells us that. When I was a little kid I thought that was such a dumb saying until now I realize when my family is all together there is never a better place I’d rather be.
One of my favorite parts is sitting around drinking hot chocolate and opening presents. Most people say getting a gift is the best part of Christmas but I don’t feel the same. I love presents but not as much as spending time with my family. On Christmas Eve we all go to my grandmas and get to open all the presents from my aunts and uncles.
Then the excitement comes. It is so hard to go to sleep on Christmas Eve because I’m so excited for the morning to come. I wake up at 7 o’ clock run down stairs and see if there is present then I run back up stairs and wake everyone up! Then the joy of the rest of the day begins. The best part is when my whole family is together.
