I've seen a few other holiday memes out there, and decided to come up with my own. If you wanna play along, just copy and paste into your own blog -- of course changing the answers to reflect your own! Oh - and if you celebrate something besides Christmas, like Hanukah, Kwanza, or Festivus, maybe you could tell us about that too!
The last time I went caroling - was about 3 years ago on a hay ride through the neighborhood with the youth from our church. Brrr.... cold! but fun!
My favorite Drink in the winter is - my Aunt Glenda's Tennessee Boiled Custard! MMM!
My favorite Holiday meal - anything yummo! We've done Ham, Short Ribs, Pot Roast, pork loin roast...
I think Fruit Cake - is best used as a door stop, and I can't figure out why people still make it if everyone claims to hate it!
One tradition we had growing up - was to wake up before our parents so we could jump up and down on their beds and shout, "Merry Christmas!"
One tradition we have now - My kids open up new pjs & socks on Christmas Eve so they look clean & crisp for the pics the next morning. They also get a new ornament that they hang on the tree Christmas Eve.
I get my Christmas Tree from - the storage room in the basement :)
I decorate - usually Thanksgiving weekend while I have off of work, and I like to decorate in certain color schemes.
On Christmas Eve I/we usually - watch christmas movies. Our Favorite two are probably "Mixed Nuts" and "Christmas Story". Usually, either the Sunday before Christmas or on Christmas eve I also read the nativity story to them.
On Christmas morning I/we wake up - whenever we feel like it. But the rule is no gift opening till Mama wakes up... :)
One special thing I make at Christmas time is - a nice Christmas dinner and we eat on the Christmas China.
My Favorite Christmas song is - I have sooo many... "The Holly & The Ivy". "I'll Be Home for Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "O Holy Night", "Greensleeves", ...
Every Christmas - we go to the movies, sledding or have a game day. (Depends on weather, health & money).
I hang my stockings - on a little child-size coat tree, as I do not have a mantel in this house.
Something I look forward to at Christmas time is - trying new recipes.
My Favorite Thing about the Holidays - is spending time with family & friends.
Something I want to start incorporating is - buying a new family game every Christmas.
