  1. I absolutely love Family time, early breakfast with my little family and love going to church on this day and remembering the whole reason for this season:)

  2. I saw your post on IG (@staceyselt) and tagged my friend @kryks. Christmas is my most favorite time of year. I love entertaining guests, cooking, putting up the tree and decorations, baking cookies, etc. It’s the one time of year we can get everyone in my immediate family together and I can see all of my friends in one place. Everyone lives so far a part and it’s the one time we all make room in our lives to get together. This year I’ll be able to extend my time with them and gather at my February wedding 🙂

  3. I love seeing your season round ups, especially this one. Thanks for finding the deals for us!

    What I love most about the holidays (besides time spent with loved ones, of course) is winter fashion – a cozy sweater accessorized with a scarf and a latte is the dream.

  4. My favorite part of the holidays is… I have to pick just one? There’s so many!! I love spending time with my family and being able to catch up with everyone. I love being able to bundle up in layers and drink not chocolate next to the fire place! I listen to Christmas music 24/7 during this time of the year (I started listening before Halloween this year oopsie!) I also love to bake cookies. Lots and lots of cookies!! And the decorations are beautiful! Every store, restaurant and home looks so pretty, I can never get enough! I look forward to the holidays all year long so when they are here, I take as much of it in as I can!

    I commented on your instagram, @dani_iannone

  5. I love that you are so real and relatable, I had a son just before you had your daughter and it’s been so great to follow you during motherhood.

  6. During the holidays I love how my family from out of town all comes together and spends multiple days together, staying in each other’s homes, adding to quality time spent together!!
    Thanks for this beautiful give away! I truly do love your blog and love to see all of your Insta posts!! I’ve ordered through your links many times!!
    I commented on Insta. @4maddens

  7. I love decorating the tree, wrapping presents, and watching my favorite Christmas movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” that stills gets me teary eyed when he gets his wings ❤️❤️❤️ Merry Christmas Ali and thank you for being so wonderful!!

  8. I am officially obsessed with everything! Great finds and picks! I love spending the Holidays with family. This is the first year we get to celebrate with my new baby nephew. It makes the traditions so much sweeter. Instagram: lorenrenee

  9. One of my absolute favorite things about Christmas are by far the decorations. Sitting in my living room at night, the room illuminated only by Christmas lights, watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate. It’s magical.
    I liked your post on instagram (@britni_tatman)

  10. We love going to Christmas Eve mass and coming out of church seeing the soft snow fall over us. It’s amazing and our children ages 29 and 33 cherish the ritual. Family–Faith!! Love Christmas and all the feelings of love on this day and throughout the year. Commented-Facebook

  11. My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with my family. I love watching Christmas movies with the lights off and only the Christmas tree lights twinkling! I’m pregnant and due just after the holidays! I can’t wait for my little girl to get here so we can all celebrate together!

    I commented on Facebook as well as Instagram – @ginaskarzynski

  12. I love the extra effort that everyone puts in to make time for each other- whether it’s coffee or drinks, dinner parties, etc. I also love the hunt for the perfect gift for my family and friends. It doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money, but it’s so much fun finding something special to show people you care.

    (I entered the contest on Instagram- @ashleyblergs).

  13. I commented on Instagram (@mollykmcg) and my favorite part of the holidays is going home to see family. We all live in different states and I always look forward to being under the same roof!

  14. I love Christmas firsts with my baby. Last year he was only four months old but we started our new family traditions anyway. This year I am so excited that he will be able to interact more in what we do. Like decorating the tree (today!) and enjoying family time and doing random acts of kindness and service leading up to the holiday.

  15. Hi, Ali!
    My favorite part of the holidays is giving back to others. Yes, I adore my family & I love spending time with them, but service makes my heart feel so warm it could explode. I try to remember that just because I have everything I need during the holidays- does not everyone else is as lucky as I am.
    I commented on Instagram (@robinsonm1999).
    Thank you! Have a great day! 🙂

  16. The best part of the holidays is being with my family! We’re always doing some sort of a road trip somewhere. This year, it’ll be in San Fran.

  17. I love decorations and time with family around a Christmas tree. ? My FAVORITE though, is Christmas morning and watching my sweet little girl light up with excitement. That’s the BEST. ?

    I commented on Insta under the name ChasityCzeczok ☺️

  18. Being a college student I have a new love and respect for the holidays. I love coming home and being with friends and family. I love all the preparations for Christmas from the baking to the present shopping but my favorite part is being with family around the fire and sharing with the love. Thank you for the give aways!! I love following your blog. I commented on Instagram elspeth_grace

  19. Family time is always a favorite of mine, but this year is extra special. It is my first baby Eli’s first Christmas! I absolutely can not wait to experience Christmas with him!
    Instagram @jnekuri

  20. My favorite part of the holidays is definitely spending time with family that I don’t see on a daily basis. This Christmas is also extra special because it’s my daughters first Christmas!! I posted on instagram ???

  21. What I love most about the holidays are the traditions I have with my friends and family. Every year we all come together and make cookies, listen to Christmas carols, and play board games. It’s something I look forward to each year and I’m so happy the season has come!

  22. What I love most about the holidays is family time. Especially now that I have a one year old I love doing all the Christmas activities together as a family!

    My absolute favorite is watching her beautiful face light up.

  23. I commented on Instagram @alissaeubanks

    I absolutely love spending time with my family, fiancé and our fur baby Bailey. I help my Grandma every year with cooking and we decorate the tree together. Then I take our fur babies down to the local shelter where they take holiday photos and all proceeds go to rescuing animals. Bailey also makes doggie blankets and sometimes cat beds as a gift to all her pals at the shelter (where we adopted her from). We are huge on giving back. Happy Holidays!


  24. Nothing feels more like the holiday season than our day of traditions — cutting down our tree, followed by a walk with the family around my childhood home to see all the Christmas lights, completed with a PJ exchange with a side of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and tree decorating. It’s amazingly rewarding to see how the family continues to grow with significant others and the kiddo coming soon. Happy Holidays!

  25. I absolutely love decorating the house in lights! I leave them up most of the winter to bring some light into what can be a gloomy season. I of course love spending time with family and watching the little ones excitement on Christmas day!

    I commented on Instagram

  32. Seeing family/friends, hanging up stockings, trimming the tree and of course, indulging! 🙂
    Insta @maryannhanusiak

  33. What I love most about Christmas is spending time with family and friends. I enjoy sitting around and catching up with life since we all seem to live very hectic lives. In our family we make sure we take time to see each other ( So many work in the Medical Field so we don’t get to see Everyone but since we have lost many loved ones especially the ones in December Each and everyone finds the time no matter how little to see one another on the Holidays.)

  41. I always look forward to the crisp weather (well, only kind of in CA!), the twinkling lights around the neighbors, cooking some kind of comfort food with a holiday movie in the background, and this year, the feeling of our sugar plum fairy dancing in my tummy (getting her all set for her first Christmas next year by binging on all the best holiday music!).

  46. Being able to spend time with family that live so far away. Nothing beats the smell of home during the holidays and when it begins to snow outside! ❤️ Liked on IG @kaykay1122

  47. Don’t get me wrong I love seeing my family and being with loved ones around the holidays…but my favorite thing is probably the giving/thankful spirit the holidays seems to put people in. We, as a nation and world in general, seem to be more kind, generous, thoughtful, and grateful around the holidays and that kind of spirit is infectious! God Bless!
    Instagram: @kelsiee_mariee25

  51. I lost my mom on March 13th this year. My favorite time of the year was having my mom over for Thanksgiving & enjoying ‘family time’ sharing memories of the holidays when we would all gather at her house. We have so much to be thankful for every day of every year but when your mother isn’t physically here we. Am be thankful that we know her 1st Thanksgiving in heaven was a beautiful one & her spirit was with us & lives within us every day & every holiday & for that I am truly thankful! IG/Prissn

  56. The holidays remind you of your blessings – past, present and future. Life happens so quickly and we all need time to disconnect from our busy lifestyles to simply take in the memories that make us whole. That is what I love most about the holiday season. 🙂
    – Instagram: hay_adolphson

  57. I love spending time with extended family but more than anything I love Christmas morning with just the hubs and kiddos. We don’t get a whole lot of time just the four of us with no interruptions but Christmas morning it’s just us and the world feels so quiet.

    I entered on Instagram @snlambeth ?

  58. I love how excited I get for my 2.5year old! This is just such a fun time for her with the decorations, music, and family time! Oh and I love delicious holiday meals! ~ Instagram @mereglen

  59. I love being near to my family during Christmas! Ever since my mom went through chemo for breast cancer, I’ve realized that life can be short and the best people to do life with is your family! My mom is alive and healthy so that is just another reason to celebrate this season!
    I commented on Instagram and tagged my mom. My Instagram is: @parismays

  60. The best thing about the Holidays is definitely the time spent with family! I also love cooking all the yummy food and goodies! We make Swedish coffee cake ever year and even though it takes a whole day to make them it’s totally worth it!! I commented on facebook

  61. This year I am thankful for the support of friends and family – I lost my job in August and am so grateful that they understand how difficult it is and support me! (IG @julikc)

    I entered on Instagram!

  63. I did comment (and like your post) on FB. Name is Nicole Galasso.

    I loveeeee the feeling inside I have during the holidays of wanting to “pay it forward”. I feel extremely grateful and I am more in tune during the holidays, to other people, and the need I see around me. Just makes me want to be a better person!!! Love the holiday season.

    Thank you for your blog. I enjoy keeping up with it !!! Hugs to Molly as well

  64. What I love most about holidays is the joy and warmth you experience when being reunited with family. Living in NC has been very hard when family is in TX.

    I commented on Instagram with the handle taykitty90

    Commented on FB as Aubri Larson

  67. Now that I live in Kentucky with my husband Spencer and our chocolate lab Tuck, we don’t get to get back to western Massachusetts as much and see my family!

  68. What I love most about the holidays…having my youngest daughter home from college so I can have my whole family together to relax, be together, be thankful and not take anything for granted! Love, love, love my time with both my amazing daughters! 🙂

  70. Instagram handle: taykitty90

    My favorite thing about the holidays is the warmth and joy you experience while being reunited with family. Living in NC far away from my TX family has been hard. Nothing beats family time, especially when 1 year old twins are now in attendance 🙂

  71. Getting up early tomorrow morning. Coffee and breakfast with my husband (our first married Christmas), my cousin, her husband, and their new baby. Then, we go to the farm to find our perfect trees, bring them home, decorate, sip hot cocoa, listen to Christmas carols and watch a Christmas movie.

    Instagram @jmruskey

  72. I love everything about Christmas! Spending time with family, making and baking recipes passed down from generation to generation.
    Fingers crossed it’ll be a white Christmas this year!?

    I commented on instagram @ashley.swinton

  73. What I love most about the holidays are giving to others! Toys for Tots is my all time favorite charity…after all the smile that a child gives you after receiving their first doll or action figure is PRICELESS!! My daughter is grown, but I still have her dolls to pass on should she have a daughter. This is what the holidays mean to me! XOXO Karen I entered on Instagram as @kkmazz

  74. I love being with my family,the decorations and of course all the good food and company. (Instagram amanda__barnes)

    Tagged friend on Instagram. My insta is @kristinereszel

  76. I just love seeing Ali in all of these adorable clothes!!! Baby Molly is super cute too! Every time I see a post from Ali, I get a big smile on my face.

    My favorite part about the holidays is teaching my son about giving gifts to others. We go Christmas shopping together (he’s 2) and we pick out stuff for other people. He learns to value giving over receiving. But of course, his face on Christmas is priceless wine he sees all of his gifts too!!!

    I commented on the Facebook post giveaway. My name on there is the same as it is here: Arianna Brooks ?

  77. I love the time with my family; playing games, putting up the tree, and seeing their faces light up when they open personalized gifts. Nothing better ❤️

  78. Holiday time is the best!! I love all the extra time we get to spend with family, sharing stories, playing games and warm snuggles by the fire ? So excited to spend them with our new baby girl this year ? Commented on Facebook.

  80. Hi Ali!
    My favorite part of the holiday season is the spirit and magical feeling! My favorite memories are all triggered by the songs and smells of Christmas.

    Nothing beats decorating the Christmas tree and baking cookies!!

    Ali (commented on instagram- Aliiikat)

  81. Hi! I love every aspect of the holidays. I love decorating, the “colder” temps, giving presents but most of all i love seeing the holiday spirit through my 2 year olds eyes.

    I commented on IG- Pudrescu for the giveaway

  82. I love spending time with friends and family! All of the ugly sweater parties, amazing food and holiday cheer also makes this time of year so special! I’d love to win these goodies! Instagram @keldaly

  83. I love the warmth of the holidays and the decorations! It always feels like everyone is in better spirits this time of year. I wish that feeling would continue all year! Instagram @kolbeja

  84. Thank you! I ended up ordering two items from the links yesterday so thank you! My favorite thing about the holidays is taking time to relax away from work and be around people I love. It brings the day to day things into perspective about why we all work so hard. I commented on Instagram. @yerom.rebma

  85. My grandfather’s birthday is on December 1. Every year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving my entire family goes over to my grandparent’s house to decorate for Christmas, and celebrate his birthday. It is by far my favorite holiday tradition. We have it down to a routine now, my grandparents sit down in their living room and have a drink and tell us where everything is as if we have never done this before, and we break into teams (tree team, ornament team, garland team) and make sure their house is all set for the holidays. This year will be the first year they are in a retirement community so we will be decorating their villa rather than there home. This year will also be my grandpa’s 89th birthday! We know they’re feeling sad about having their first Christmas not in their house, but hopefully the decorations will make it feel like home.

  86. Oh goodness, the holidays are the best! I love baking for my family and having us all be together. I have 3 siblings and we’re all so close and it’s such a blast when we get together!

  87. I love family time, the decorations, the music and all of the great deals!! 🙂 Happy Holidays!! (Commented on Instagram)

  89. I love being with family & seeing the next generation of little ones added each year, experience the wonder that is Christmas! Happy Holidays Ali!

  92. I enjoy our family time during the holidays! It brings us together once a year. During all our busy schedules, this time of year is for catching up and being surrounded with the ones we love and cherish!! And of course all the yummy food!! (IG @busybee1023)

  93. Eeek! I really don’t think I can choose just one! Family time, baking cookies, Christmas music, twinkling lights, Disneyland, ice skating, cozy clothes, watching “Elf” (ha!), hot cocoa, manger scenes and a reverence for what’s truly important. I think that’s it…it’s beautiful to see friends and strangers alike, united by love & kindness…What’s truly important. ❤️???❄️?❤️

  94. I love how warm and cozy this time of year is! I think that’s my favourite overall as it influences the fashion, baking and cooking, and of course family movie and snuggle time!

  95. I love the music best about the holidays! My in-laws are the type of people who dance and sing along to music while cooking Christmas dinner, I love that I can be apart of that now!!

    I “liked” your photo on Instagram: @kraynor … Happy Holidays!

  96. My favorite part of the holidays is decorating the house with my family, turning on Christmas music, drinking hot chocolate, and enjoying each other’s company. ❤️

  97. My favorite thing is being surrounded by your favorite people and just the sense of happiness and togetherness. But holiday drinks and presents aren’t bad either 😉

  98. First off, Ali, you’re adorable. Also please keep making cute babies for this world (me) to oogle over. Secondly, holidays, I love them. I love camaraderie with friends (friendsgiving and chrismukkah are my fave) and precious moments with family as well. We do a event in our family called the “Cheesy Formal Family Dinner” where we all get dressed up super formally to a theme my mom has chosen. She makes TONS of appetizers, a seafood chowder, crab and bacon wedge salad and then some serious fancy dinner. Sometimes there is caroling or dancing, there is always a “photo shoot” and always a game. It is so much fun! Anywho that’s my favorite things about the holidays. ❤️Laurenmendoza (that’s my Instagram name ? )

  99. I love family time, watching people I love opening their presents, gingerbread lattes, Christmas decorations and sparkle, day after Christmas shopping for 50% off decorations and wrapping sales, watching Elf and other classic movies, exercising while off work (brisk hikes), and being grateful for those I love!!

  104. What do I love about the holidays? First, my birthday is on the 21st and I love love love that it is close to my most favorite holiday! I’LL be 40 this year and I am expecting this to be the best Christmas ever. I start decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving so I can enjoy it for 6 weeks. I dont take the decorations or trees down until after the new year. My favorite thing though us giving back to others, whether thats donating my time, jackets for domestic violence victims, soup kitchen for the homeless, and spending time with my family! It is all amazing, especially this time of the year!.

  109. Loving family time at night. Getting dark earlier forces my kids to stay in and snuggle or watch a movie. They grow so quick.

  110. I posted on Instagram, name @sheedaly. I love being with my family — we’re all spread out so having everyone together is incredible.

  111. I love the holiday music and the gathering of family and friends! I liked your Instagram post and tagged a friend. My Instagram name is @mikalamurray

  112. I tagged on FB and liked the pic on FB and Instagram.

    I love being with loved ones and enjoying the simple things, like sitting around a fire drinking hot chocolate enjoying the ambience of the Christmas tree lights.

  113. I love starting new Christmas traditions with my lil family! I have two boys, 4 & 1 and it is so fun to watch them experience all the joy this time of year! I commented on Facebook. Krista Blasier ?

  114. My favorite holiday tradition is decorating with our daughters. The joy and smilies on their faces are priceless. We decorate the whole house and get a family ornament each year. This year we had a good laugh because we realized the ornament last year we had made had the wrong year they put 2016 not 2015 ?. We usually decorate a week or so early and watch Christmas movies all 2 months long. I love your blog and honestly your whole fashion taste I would buy it all ifI could. Thanks for always sharing your daughter is adorable.

  115. My fave thing about the holidays is singing Christmas music with my two girls! I commented on your Instagram post for the giveaway. Love this post!!

  116. What I love most about the holidays is all the Christmas lights! I love the sparkle and it just makes you feel happier on these dark days. I would have lights up all year if I could. I love driving around and going to all the light displays and I love sitting in front of the fireplace.

  117. I love the moments when time seems to slow down and I get to really soak in the time with my family. And pie, I love all the holiday pies!!!

    Happy first Christmas to Molly. She was so close to being born on my birthday. Just one day early. 🙂

    I commented on Instagram and my name on there is _kaylasue.

  118. My favourite thing about the holidays this year is seeing how excited my 2 year old is about everything. It’s the best seeing all of the excitement through her eyes. ? Also I commented on Instagram @danniritchie

  119. Everyone is just in a better mood over the holidays! There’s a special feeling in the air. I remember last year at the train station in Chicago business men and women just stopped in their tracks during their morning commute to listen to a local school’s choir sing carols. Meetings and conference calls could wait …

  120. My most favorite part of the holidays is getting to see all my family. I don’t live in the same state as my immediate family so going home and seeing my niece,nephew,sister, brothers, and parents mean everything. Even at 29 I still very much get homesick not being able to see them everyday. Sipping coffee in the morning Xmas eve with my mom and sister couldn’t make me happier. One day I’ll have a family of my own and it will be just as special making new memories and traditions. <3

  121. These holidays are particularly special because I am engaged, and we recently moved into our first house together. Our house is in the neighborhood where we both grew up and where our families still live today.
    My fiancé and I have been decorating and making our own holiday traditions. This has been my favorite part of the holiday season!
    I commented on Instagram: rthurmond28

  122. My favorite part of the holidays is setting up our Christmas tree with my husband. Every year we buy an ornament to symbolize the highlight of our year. First year we got 2 ornaments–1 for buying our house & 1 for our first Christmas as a mr & mrs <3 Second year we got an ice cream cone because we decided to open up a Christmas shop. This year our ornament will be for my little pregnant belly!

    I commented on Instagram @vtong001

  123. I absolutely love the holidays and I’m super excited for this one!!! My twins are 3 and a half so they are totally into the holidays this year and I love trying to make it magical for them:) This will also be our first Christmas with our latest (and last) addition to our family my 5 month old son (he’s just a few weeks older than Molly). Most of all I just love the feeling of Christmas it is definitely the best time of the year!!!

  124. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love that I get the time off to spend with my littles. My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with family(although this year a part of my heart is half way around the world in the Navy) and celebrating the birth of Jesus. I commented on FB.

  125. I love surprising my husband with two separate gifts for his birthday and for Christmas. His birthday is only two days before Christmas so he’s always grown up celebrating both together. When I differentiate the two days (instead of conveniently lumping the celebration together), I love seeing his expression and seeing how special it makes him feel. He’s not used to it so his eyes light up every year I do that!


    Btw, thank you for being so sweet and kind when I ran into you at the doctors office for your post partum appointment! You are super sweet!

  126. Family (and wine) has always been my favorite part of the holidays, but Christmas is extra special this year as my husband and I welcomed a baby boy just six weeks ago. Welcoming a baby puts things in perspective and I’m looking forward to creating new memories that focus on love and the true meaning of the holidays ❤️
    Ps. I tagged my friend Kelaine on Instagram – she is awesome 🙂

    Having a child during the holidays makes it extra magical and special. Something happens and the feeling of the holiday is totally different. This is my 3rd year with children and it gets better and better

  128. I love the holiday and winter time because of all the wonderful food, time with friends and family, being able to wear winter coats! And just the crispness in the air and the toasty feeling indoors and being able to snuggle up with a hot cocoa or apple cider.

  132. I liked your photo on instagram. My favorite part of the holidays is to see the excitement in my children’s eyes. They genuinely believe and are so innocent to the other things going on around them. To be a kid again!

  133. I love the way the holidays brings everyone together! It’s a great time to give back to the community and to those that are less fortunate. I can’t wait to keep instilling in my kids the sameness traditions my family taught me! So much fun!

I love Christmas lights on in the house 24/7. I love homemade Chex mix and other winter treats. I love trying to find the perfect gift for my family. I love the excitement on my kids faces. I love putting out decorations – especially the vintage ones that have a story. And I especially love being reminded that Jesus was born for us when I look at the lit up nativity
