yes, I know, it hasn't even got to halloween yet! but at our house, christmas is already on it's way. My mum makes the christmas cake by hand, and because it needs to cure? preserve? let the flavours sink in??(I dunno what the technical term is, but let's just go with it
) she made the cake today!

and GUESS WHO got to lick the beaters clean and scoop out the bowl?


haha I felt like a kiddo again, it was really fun. I love christmas, and here in oz we don't really celebrate halloween all that much, we just move straight onto christmas.

Did you know we have christmas trees up at our big department stores already? no christmas window displays yet but give them a week


are you looking forward to christmas??

I love Christmas!!!

- One of my favorite things is going to THIS

- Seeing the Kids so happy and joyful, Christmas is about the kids

- Going to Disneyland and seeing all the decorations

- Taking time off from work, etc

- May I suggest renting this movie here. It really shows the true meaning of Christmas. It was out in the theater last year and I loved it bigtime.

I am such a Christmas person. I do hate that they start selling things before Halloween is even here, but it's very busy for my family. We have lots of traditions and parties.

Yes I like Christmas.. I know retailers are anioxous to get a jump on christmas shopping. I do wish they would wait untill halloween was over before getting christmas things out though. I went to Indianapolis over the weekend and one of the raido stations was allready playing christmas music only.

My family doesn't start getting ready for Christmas until Thanksgiving.
I love watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV! It gets me so excited for Christmas!

Last year my family went to NYC around Christmas time, so we got to see the Macy's window decorations and the huge tree in Rockefeller Center and watched people ice skate. We also got a carriage ride through central park! It was so much fun!

Love christmas too! My mom and I start our baking in November and we deep freeze it until the big day =)

When I lived on Magnetic Island ( just off the coast of Brisbane ) I couldnt get over how strange it was to get up on Christmsa morning and have it be 40 degrees! It was culture shock. I have never suntanned on Dec 25th before that! LOL

I love Christmas. My favorite part is looking at all the Christmas lights and decorations. Many of the stores here have Christmas items, decorations etc set up before Halloween.

hehe, i see i'm not the only one licking the beaters
(we used to fight for this with my brother-crazy kids)

yeah i heard something like that, i think it was for some kind of pudding.

we don't celebrate halloween much either, it's just a small commercial thing.

the week before christmas i will have only two tuts, so i will have time to shop and bake
