Anticipation is in the air and you are probably trying to get your holiday traditions started or your presents wrapped.  I know for me, I went crazy baking today.  I was going nowhere but my kitchen.  However, this weekend hopefully all but wrapping will be finished (dare I say I will have my husband’s gifts purchased?), so the holiday festivities can begin.

And the weekend has some great ideas to start the celebrations off right!
