I've always loved Christmastime: the cheesy tunes, the Hallmark flicks, the Christmas cookies. I've seen Home Alone about 5 times this month, and it never gets old! Of course, I've also been listening to tons of Christmas music. My favorite holiday track this year is "Christmas Lights" by Coldplay.
