Christmas Questions.. whooohooo!

December 19, 2015

Christmas questions

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme.  

Let's go!!!

Christmas Questions Meme

From the archives!

1. Have you been naughty or nice this year? 
Yes, and on a regular basis, too.  It's good to be naughty and nice, right?  Or is that bad? Oh!  you said "or". Hmmmm?

2. What do you want most for Christmas? 
I want the house painted, and new baseboards.  Every time we decide to do them, I get sick!  Now it's like a "boogie man in the closet" sort of thing.  I think it's time to nail that sucker shut, so we can get on with our lives, don't you?

3. What is your favorite Christmas movie? 
I don't remember what I said last time, so I'll pick a random favorite out of several.  How about '"The Twelve Dogs of Christmas".  It's fun.  There are TONS of great and inspiring and great and funny Christmas movies out there.  I also love, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
A neighbor's display

4. How many Christmas cards do you normally send out? 
I send around ten or twelve.  I used to send out 30 or so.  Times change!

5. Do you still get a stocking? 
Nope.  But I can eat all the fudge I want, yes?

6. What is your favorite Christmas song? 
Oh Holy Night

7. What is your favorite Christmas tv special? 
I don't know of any besides Hallmark.  They've done some nice ones.  The Christmas Miracle of Johnathan Toomey is probably my favorite one of those:

8. What is your favorite way to wrap gifts? 
Shiny paper and bows.  Sometimes I make little boxes out of old Christmas Cards to put small things in.

9. What do you look forward to most at Christmas? 
Seeing the DDs if they are coming.  And then there is the decorating of the whole house.  I have a lot of garlands, and swags, little trees, and two tall trees, and just a ton of stuff.  I really love decorating for Christmas.  I also like to go see the lights around town.  Very lovely.

10. What did you do for Christmas this year? 
Mr. Z finally had the time to put all the outside lights up.  Yay!

11. Who do you want to kiss under the mistletoe? 
Mr. Z of course.  We don't do the mistletoe thing anymore.  We used to go gather it in the mountains with the whole family.  Then we started buying it from enterprising teens who gathered it and sold it door to door.  That was a fun neighborhood thing back in the day.

12. What kind of Christmas tree do you have? 
This year we have the artificial green tree up.  And a few little trees here and there.  The white tree will go up later, after Christmas.  I've had some down time and of course it couldn't be in hot days of summer when there is absolutely nothing to do but sit in the cool air and read.  Dang!  

Bah!  Humbug!

Anyway,  Ahem.....I like our decorated 18" trees and the ones made from wire coat hangers and garland. and the sock monkey tree from last year...

And the white tree

From a few years ago
One of many, I'm a total Nut about Christmas

13. Did you take part in a Secret Santa? 
No, not this year but we usually do.  We share the joy of the season in other ways.  Also, we help out all year by helping to feed and shelter people throughout the year.  It makes me feel joy all year that way.

14. Did you go to any Christmas parties? 
Not so far.  There's one coming up though.  Yay!  We did miss the Rockhound Christmas Luncheon which was something we look forward to all year.  Bah! Humbug!

From the Olden Days, A camp out in the 60's at Quartszite.

15. How early do you wake up on Christmas morning?
Around the usual time.  If the kids were here this awakening would be about 7:00.  Then I want to be up and into the "action".  :o)  Bustle Bustle!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
