The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year! It’s so festive and fun. Most people think that the holiday season ends after Christmas but that is So not true! We can’t forget New Years Eve/New Years Day right? I don’t know about you, but New Years Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love the thought of a brand new year. A fresh start.
