I've Got Spirit, How 'Bout You?!

Well, that's what Alicia over at More Than Words thinks anyways!!

I am so honored to accept this award, because, YES, I do have spirit and I heart Christmas! Melissa @ Made In Canada, Living in the U.S., created this new awesome award!! And now I have it!! I'm more than honored to pass it on to other ladies in blogosphere! Of course, with receiving awards, there are some rules that come along with it. For this particular award, the rules are very simple. They are....

1.You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award. CHECK!

2.The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas. CHECK!

3.You must link back to the person who gave you the award. CHECK!

4.You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. CHECK! (If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! :).

5.Pass the award along to as many people as you like. CHECK! That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment on their blog.
