My Christmas Meme

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.

And don't forget to link your blog here if you participate so we can all join in the fun!

I was just asked the other night if I had ever had or heard of boiled custard. This was from a classmate who is from Kentucky. I told her that our aunt in Tennessee made it for us. The other classmates were like, "What's boiled custard?" I told them it is a drink like egg nog, it tastes like melted ice cream. I also told them that when the southerners say it, it doesn't sound like boiled custard, but bowled custard.

That was fun to read. I did a similar meme a while ago, so I´ll skip this one, but you should do it again next Christmas.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your kids and family!
