We all love Christmas and to an extent it’s the same for most people. But in some things, our experiences can be different and there is different things we remember most or attach more meaning to. I asked my friends on Facebook what some of their favorites were and here are the answers I got. Feel free to answer with your favorites in the comments!

*I put this down here in case you didn’t know what Hooky Bobbin’ is. Apparently it’s where you tie an inner tube to the back of a truck and go driving in the snow with people riding in the inner tube. Kind of like sledding but being pulled by a vehicle. And with a lot more danger. But also a lot more fun 🙂 I’m down to go try it if anyone wants to join me XD
I’ll answer these questions for myself in another post soon 🙂 I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to leave your answers in the comments!
