So, it's nearing the gifting time of year.   And here I am doing my shopping online today - nobody tell kirvin3, ok? So to amuse you, I have decided to ask, in the tradition of a holiday song, What exactly are  'a few of your favorite things'?

Mine are pretty basic (and not nearly as cutesy-rhymey as those in the song):
A fresh cup of coffee to start the day
lazy mornings snuggled with my wife
watching the joy people have opening their gifts
sunrise on fresh snowfall, and the way it turns trees in to icing sculptures
a full moon on a clear night  (great for walks by the way)
my friends, and the pleasure we find in each others company
Christmas Carols - there is just something magical about many of them


Which leads into my next custom pseudo- meme:

What is your favorite Christmas carol?  Is there a reason?

Mine is, and always will be, Silent Night.  A simple reflection on the birth of a child, written with the feverent wish that a parish might enjoy Christmas music for their mass, despite their broken pipe organ.  The calm reflection of the song (it is said to have been sung by both sides of the Christmas truce in 1914) has a power all its own.  In any version (the original German, Gaelic, or English) a beautiful song.
