12 Questions of Christmas
I found this on Rebecca Jo's blog and decided to answer them myself. You can read her answers here.
1. What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
Getting up early Christmas morning and opening presents with our girls (and now Charlie too) and fixing breakfast and just enjoying the morning together. I dread the first time when one of them won't be able to be there.
2. Where do you spend Christmas?
Christmas Eve with my family. Plans are to go to my sister's and then we'll all go visit dad. Christmas morning is with our girls and Charlie and then to my husband's parent's home for lunch and family time.
3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
I can't name just one. Probably Away in the Manger and Silent Night for traditional carols and I love Mary Did You Know and Silver Bells and, of course, White Christmas!
4. Do you decorate before or after Thanksgiving?
This year it was after Thanksgiving because we were out of town. Last year it was before Thanksgiving. However, when we decorate before Thanksgiving, we keep the blinds closed and just enjoy the lights ourselves. Blinds will be opened Thanksgiving evening to share the lights with anyone driving by.
5. Tinsel or garland?
As a child we had tinsel, but if we use either, it's garland. Tinsel is prettier, but so messy and probably not ideal with a little dog.
6. Who are you most excited to see this Christmas season?
Kelli, because I haven't seen here since April.
7. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater?
No, not any more. I used to have several (but I didn't think they were ugly, but others may have).
8. What is one Christmas food you cannot live without?
My sister's or sister-in-law's cheeseball.
9. Peppermint or gingerbread?
I'm not a fan of either one. But if I had to choose, then peppermint.
10. Have you ever tried a fruit cake?
Not that I can remember. They just don't tempt me at all. So I figure, there are too many calories in the things I love, so why even try it. I might like it and I just don't need it. I feel the same about pecan pie.
11. What is one thing you asked for this Christmas?
A new laptop
12. If you could be any Christmas movie character, who would you be?
Rosemary Clooney's character in White Christmas. I would love to be able to sing like her. Plus aren't these dresses beautiful?!?
I wasn't actually tagged in this, but just enjoyed the questions and answers when I read Rebecca Jo's and decided to answer them myself. If you enjoy this and decide to answer them too, let me know so I can read you answers.
