The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, now they are open and wrapping paper is everywhere! Merry Christmas!
If your family room is anything like ours, it's probably full of tissue paper and bows and the last remnants of wrapping paper torn from presents that were ever-so carefully piled beneath the tree. Hopefully everyone is in good cheer on this beautiful, non-white Christmas, day and enjoying time with family and friends. We want to know though: what is your favorite part of Christmas? Is it something you got this year, like a new iPhone 5, sweater or pony? Or is your favorite gift something that can't necessarily be wrapped up and placed under a tree?

Next Saturday, it all comes to life as the Polar Express train takes to the track for the first…
