Twenty-two Christmas Questions

We found this meme at Blue's blog on Saturday and it's definitely a "mom" meme!
Mom had fun playing in between batches of cookies! Maybe you can too!

(1) What is your favorite Christmas movie?
A Christmas Story with Ralphie and Randy!(2) What is your LEAST favorite Christmas movie?
I don't really have a least favorite.
(3) What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Feliz Navidad!
(4) What Christmas song(s) drives you crazy?
Blue Christmas by Elvis!
(5) What is your favorite Christmas drink?
Eggnog!
(6) What is your favorite Christmas memory?
Sledding with dad and my brothers!
(7) What is the best toy/gift you've received on Christmas?
WoolieDales!
(8) What is the worst toy/gift you've received on Christmas?
Soap!
(9) What do you LOVE about the holidays?
The Christmas lights!
(10) What annoys you about the holidays?
Rude shoppers!
(11) Do you prefer star or angel on top of a Christmas tree? Or something else?
I don't really have a particular topper - just an ornament near the top and it changes from year to year!
Family room tree:Airedale tree in the kitchen:
(12) What is your family favorite recipe at Christmas?
Nonna's fruitcake!
(13) Are you a Grinch or a Who at Christmastime?
I'm not a Grinch. What's a Who?
(14) Christmas light displays - Love them or Hate them?
Love the lights - both white and colored but I hate the LED lights. They're too white and impersonal.
(15) Santas at the mall - Fun times or Creepy?

My daughter visited with Santa in the malls for years. I never did that as a kid!

(16) Christmas cards - do you send them, yes or no?
We do send out cards and we love receiving them! Our list got cut in half this year though.
(17) What is the best thing about Christmas, in your opinion?
Giving gifts to others and making them happy!
(18) What is the worst thing about Christmas?
Again - the rude crowds!
(19) When do you put the tree up and take it down?
I try very hard to wait until after Halloween till it goes up! LOL shhhhhhhhhh
The family room tree comes down usually the second week in January and the Airedale tree sometimes makes it until the end of January!

(20) Out of the 12 days of Christmas, which day and item would you want your truelove to give to you?
Five golden rings sounds very nice!
(21) What is your favorite smell at Christmastime?
The balsam greens!
(22) What would make you happy at Christmas this year?
Being with my husband and my sweet furbutts and my daughter and her hubby! It sounds wonderful to me!

That was fun! If anyone else has time in between cookie recipes, you might want to give it a whirl!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Maggie and Mitch's mom, Sue

When momma was a little kid, she went to see the magical Christmas princess instead of Santa. She still thinks those mall Santas are kind of creepy.

We like the lights too. We have the colored LED ones on our inside tree because they are cool to the touch and momma is all freaky about fire ever since the barn burned down. But we agree that the regular lights for the window candles are the way to go.

Slobbers,
Mango

We hate to take the trees down. We left them up thru February one year. They usually come down the middle of January.

Thanks for visiting me Maggie and Mitch.

Mom and I need to have a talk right now.

This sounds like a "mom" thing - we won't be too surprised if our Mom decides to follow suit and do it too. If she can get on the computer, that is. Between our Sissy and Dad, Mom gets very little computer time unless she beats them out of bed in the mornings.

XOXO
