I love the Christmas tradition here, the build up to it, getting the house decorated, buying gifts for loved ones and watching them opening them on Christmas morning. I go to a Christmas party nearly every week up to Christmas, tonight I will be going to a  Nurses Ball, then there is the hospital Ball and our own department Christmas party, this year its going to be Great Gatsby party, where we will dress up like in the 20's. So  yes I do like the Christmas season.
