New Year, New You ~ Kimberly Kincaid

I love a clean slate! Just thinking about my pristine new day planner makes me smile from ear to ear.

Happy New Year With Susan Fox

Aside from the bubbly and the beach, I love the sense of a fresh start. It’s like the slate has been wiped clean—just like the waves have refreshed the beach—and I can move on with new energy.

To be honest, New Years is my #1 favorite holiday of the year. (Well, after Thanksgiving because I love the food and family!)

New Year, New You ~ Alexandra Ivy

I love to go out on New Year’s eve. I love all the cheesy things! The sparkly outfit, the champagne, everyone gathered together to watch the new year being rung in!

New Year’s is a very laid back kind of holiday after all of the Christmas rush. We do have certain foods—black-eyed peas for luck and collard greens for money.

Holiday Love ~ Debbie Macomber

My husband’s family wasn’t much into celebrating Christmas and then he married me, the woman who puts up six Christmas trees and spends weeks preparing for the holiday.

Every year we go to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA (Longwoodgardens.org) as a family and spend the day (into the night) oohing and awing over the most amazing Christmas decorations I’ve ever seen.

I remember the Christmas I spent with my mom before she died. I had just gotten engaged to the lovely man who is now my hubby, and he was coming home with me for the holidays.

Holiday Romance ~ Nancy Thayer

The day after Christmas, I stay in my robe, allowing myself to nibble on leftover stuffing and chocolates, and I choose a book written by Rosamund Pilcher, whom I consider the Glittering Fairy Godmother of romance novels.

DECK THE HALLS WITH LOVE

Holiday Love ~ Lorraine Heath

I like to fill my house with poinsettias. My mom loved them, but she was frugal and would only buy one or two. When I walk through my house at Christmas and see all the poinsettias, I see her.
