Essay:

Have you ever thought about how when it's Christmas time and snow is falling? Well here's some reasons why Christmas is the best.

First off, Christmas is a time of hanging out with family and wearing scratchy sweaters, no doubt. But think of all the activities that you can do or that are available. I'll start off with Ice Skating and Skiing. Yeah if you play hockey your going to skate a lot but isn't it fun grouping up with your family and cousins and having some fun on the rink? Once you get the hang of it it's pretty fun! Now, don't like being able to slip or fall on hard ice? What about soft snow! Skiing is a almost tradition for our family and it's one of the traditions I like the most. Going up somewhere like troll hogging or another skiing "resort".

Second, the food! Have you ever had a Christmas party or been to one? If so you'll know what I'm talking about. Even though you may have to wear one of grandmas ugly knitted sweaters that itch you have a big reward. Food. Whether it be Christmas cookies or warm pie from the oven. Now don't get me wrong, not saying that the regular food isn't good either.

Lastly, you can't forget the gifts. I know Christmas for many is about Jesus' birthday and all but you can't forget about the gifts! After you open your gifts don't you spend the rest of the night playing with them? Come on, tell me you DON'T. Finding ways to incorporate everyone in playing with their toys.

All in all, Christmas is very special for everyone who...
