All across Montana, people are getting ready for Christmas. Children are on their best behavior, folks are checking gifts off of their lists, trees are being decorated, stockings are being hung, menus are being planned, and presents are being wrapped.

It's certainly easy to get swept up in the Christmas spirit with all of the lights, decorations, fun foods, and holiday cheer.

Here in Montana, we love Christmas; in fact, we make the Top 5 when it comes to states that are most festive for the holidays. But what is it that Montanans love the most about Christmas? What's the thing that we look forward to all year?

Montanans favorite thing about the Christmas season is Christmas music. Yep, here in Montana, it seems we love to sing the songs of the season, according to data from our friends over at inner body.

I will admit, I do enjoy singing Christmas songs, however, I'm not sure that's my favorite thing about Christmas. I look at the whole holiday season as a recipe; a cup of this, a dash of that, and you end up with a lot of little things that combine to make something wonderful.

Montana isn't alone when it comes to their love of Christmas songs. The good folks of Alabama and Hawaii say singing Christmas songs is their favorite part of the Holidays as well.

Of course, everyone has a favorite Christmas song, and Montanans are no different, although I question the validity of the song picked to be our favorite here. (Not to be rude, but I don't know anyone under the age of 60 that says Blue Christmas is their favorite Christmas song.)


Still, it's fun to hear the songs, sing along, and see all of the decorations as we go about our busy days.

Oh, and for those of you who aren't fans of all the Christmas music that's being sung all over Montana right now, much like Christmas, it will soon pass and you won't have to hear it again until next year.

Merry Christmas!

Montana Holiday Collection Will Get You In The Christmas Spirit

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Bozeman, and for those of you who still are having a bit of a problem getting into the spirit of the season, I have the perfect place for you to check out.

As you travel around the area this Holiday Season taking in all the lights and various displays, you will certainly want to stop in and spend a little time at one long-time Bozeman business.

The Lewis and Clark Motel located at 824 West Main has one of the most spectacular Nutcracker displays that you will ever see. With almost 600 on display, the self-guided tour is a great way to get into the Holiday spirit, while remembering the old-fashioned Christmases that so many of us enjoyed as kids.
