The best part of being a dad at Christmas is seeing my kid's eye's light up at the sight of the tree, the hot chocolate, and those gifts! The worst part is putting up the tree, and the lights, the wrapping....and then having to take it all down. Thanks for the giveaway.

The fact that I'm in the military makes being a dad hard, I'm never home. Although nothing beats coming home after a long day and having my son run to me.

Kristin

great prize would love to have one

Gary

The best part is watching the kids get so excited. The worst part is not getting time off from work BEFORE Christmas, so I miss out on a lot of the excitement.

Kent

The best part...my son. The worst part...trying to figure out what to buy my wife.

The worst part is that what takes days to wrap takes five minutes to unwrap.

both good and bad = having to spend tons of money for presents for my 5 month old son when we don't have a lot of money

I would say the worst part about being a dad at Christmas would be having to put together toys, like a bike or something that's difficult to put together. The best part about being a dad at Christmas is seing the look on your child's face when he/she sees the gift that you put together! : )

Betty

The worst part would be staying up late on Christmas Eve to put things together and then getting up early on Christmas morning. The best part would be seeing the smiles when the children see their new toys that you put together.

Jerry

Best: Teaching, playing with and learning from my children. Every day is an adventure with them and through their eyes. Worst: Leaving them each day to go to work. I have missed out on a few important events in their lifetimes but I do hope that still with it being the worst that I am teaching them responsibility through having to work. Great question!

The best part is the happy banter and watching their faces light up and the delighted squeals followed by hugs and kisses as they open gifts. It's the pits trying to assemble the toys. I have been known to beg and plead for the floor model. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway! Wishing you a Happy Holiday Season!

I think the worst part would be having to stay up late putting things together, and then waking up early the next morning!

Best part really is seeing the smiles on the kids faces knowing that you were the one to make it happen! Worst I would have to say is anytime i have to punish them. It's always so hard to do, and it breaks my heart.

Well as a father and grandfather, i would have to say the best part of it is seeing the happy faces as they open the gifts..but also knowing that they know the true meaning of Christmas and what it stands for. Watching the proud face of my daughter as her two of her three children sing songs in the Christmas Eve concert. And seeing the baby smile. The worst part is knowing there are many families that arent so fortunate and of course paying the credit card bill in January.

The worst part was the last 10 years not spending the actual Christmas day with my son. But the best part is he is now living with me and I can see his eyes light up Christmas morning and watch him open gifts. I will be cutting those packages open and helping him put things together, this year that is my Christmas present. Happy Holidays

I think the worst part of being a Dad at Christmas is untangling Christmas lights. The best part is seeing your kids' excitement over the lights, the presents and all the fun times with family and friends.
