Now that it’s really looking a lot like Christmas, we asked our readers what they like most about the season. Here are the top 10 answers...size=3>

1. Christmas Spirit

My favourite thing about Christmas? I can't name just one! I love the gingerbread cookies, roast turkey and the scent of cinnamon. There's the gift unwrapping, parties and carollers in the malls. And the holidays, too! I guess I just love that Christmassy feeling all round!

2. Warm and fuzzy

Sweater weather. It's finally the time of the year when we can hide under our comfy sweaters. Other than that, Christmas has become more than just a religious celebration. I love that despite what one believes, it's the time of the year many reunite and catch up with loved ones and to show random acts of kindness. There's just so much warmth ... like a sweater!

3. Happy bunch

I love that my friends who study overseas come back to Hong Kong during Christmas, and we can reunite and catch up.

4. Hug it out

The cold Christmas is a warm reminder to huddle together with your loved ones. Getting to see my friends and family during such a frosty time is the best thing about Christmas for me.

5. Yo, Santa!

An excuse to wear a Santa hat to school every day.

Hudson Hilliard, 17

6. Christmas legends

I love the story of Santa Claus and his sleigh being pulled by cute reindeer. I could hear it and watch it every day during Christmas.

Odessa Fung, 13

7.Time to chillax

The reason I like Christmas is very simple - I get a holiday. Although it's not as long as the summer holiday, it's still a holiday!

Jasmine Lo, 12

8. Double whammy

My favourite thing about Christmas is that fact that it also means it's my birthday, which translates into double the presents!

Liam Fung, 11

9. Cookie monster

The only thing that's better than a gingerbread cookie is having more gingerbread cookies. Christmas is the only time of the year when I can satisfy my gingerbread cookie craving, as they're not sold all year round. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks Christmas-themed gingerbread cookies look and taste better than plain ones.

10. Sweet as candy

I absolutely love the red and white striped sticks of sweet mintiness, otherwise known as candy canes. It's only during Christmas that I can eat them without getting weird looks.
