I am not one to get excited about Christmas until after Thanksgiving - but now that Thanksgiving has come and gone - I'm super excited about Christmas.  This year I want to make it more about the time of year than the presents - I want to get out and see all the homes decorated in lights, make Christmas cookies and blast my Christmas music.  

Charlotte's got a lot has compiled a list of 16 wonderful holiday events and I for one am looking forward to partake in several of them.
