All the work and making that goes into the holidays is pretty much my favorite part of this season. It feels so sad when it's over and all the gifts are unwrapped. I think this is a left over emotion from my childhood. I would get REALLY down and depressed when dec 26th rolled around. I try to celebrate each season not put such an emphasis on just that one day (xmas) and celebrate the solstice and talk about what the cycles of the season mean to me.
