CHRISTMAS TAG

Standard

I saw the Christmas Tag post by Tabby over at orangeowldiaries and it looks like fun. It’s a question and answer post, about favorite Christmas traditions. As she, and the ones before her, I leave the tags open to anyone who wishes to participate! Have fun! 🙂

1.  What is your favorite Christmas movie?

That would have to be the 1983 movie, “A Christmas Story”. I know it plays almost continually somewhere on TV during the holidays, and I have to stop and watch at least once. It always makes me laugh, and there are so many memorable catch phrases, which our family have to repeat to each other. 🙂

2.  Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

We’ve always opened one present on Christmas Eve evening, the rest Christmas morning.

3.  Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?

My favorite Christmas memory would have to be 2 days before Christmas, 1969 …the day we got married. This year will be 46 years together 🙂 … another fun memory was when I was a kid and thought for sure I saw the ‘real’ Santa leaving gifts under the tree in the living room …hahaha

4.  What is you favorite festive food?

Festive food? Probably home-made Christmas cookies, that we cut out and decorate.

5.  Over the years, what has been your favorite Christmas Present?

So many I can’t even remember. Besides the wedding and everything that includes, there is one small gift I especially love. It was a small sauce-pan my mother gave me one year, not too many years before she passed. It was just a little pan she’d gotten from one of the grocery store promotions, and she’d put a package of home-made Chex mix in it. I still have the pan, and use it every single day…to make tea in. I think of her, and that Christmas, every time I use it. 🙂

6.  What is your favorite Christmas scent?

Oh, I love them all. The scent of a fresh pine tree, when you run your fingers through the branches would be a favorite. We don’t get to have that scent here very often, so it’s special.

7.  Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Other than opening one gift…not really. We used to have a couple of Bassett hounds, though. On Christmas Eve night, we’d take them for a walk around the neighborhood. We would also take a large door-hanger of huge jingle-bells to shake as we walked around. That was fun!

8.  What is at the top of your Christmas tree?

We usually have had a star of some sort, or a tall, pretty ornament. We’ve used a Santa Hat, ribbons and bows, angels, and other whimsical things. Haven’t had a big tree in many years, though (the cats destroy them), so just have a tiny one on top of the TV shelf, now.

9.  Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up on Christmas Day?

I get dressed, because we usually have to go somewhere to meet relatives. If I get some new clothing or jewelry, I’ll wear that, too.

10.  Do you prefer candy canes, or gingerbread men?

Candy Canes…peppermint has always been a favorite sweet for me.
