  1. I love January for my Birthday and December for Celebrating the Savior's Birth. Each month has a reason to be a favorite, How can I choose just one? Thanks for the Giveaway. 2016 will be here before I' ready.

  2. My favorite month is November, because it is deep into fall and is the month of my fave holiday-- Thanksgiving! :)

  3. I have never really thought about which month is my favorite. There are several good months, all for different reasons. August is great because it is my daughter's birthday, as well as mine. December is great because of the holidays. April is great because the weather is becoming warm and spring is in the air. May is great because berries start coming to the farmers market, and June's tomato season brings boxes of canning tomatoes. October is good because we finally leave the heat of summer behind for good, and have beautiful fall days that are easy to appreciate because the cold nights remind us that winter is just around the corner.
