A Christmas Meme


I don't know if I've ever done a meme, but Vee had this one up on her blog and I thought it kind of festive. So here goes:

1. Hot Chocolate or apple cider?
2. Turkey or Ham?
3. Do you get a fake or real-you-cut-it-yourself Christmas tree?
4. Decorations on the outside of your house?
5. Snowball fights or sleddin’?
6. Do you enjoy going downtown shopping?
7. Favorite Christmas song?
8. How do you feel about Christmas movies?
9. When is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?
10. Stockings before or after presents?
11. Go to someone else’s house or they come to you?
12. Do you read the Christmas Story? If so when?
13. What do you do after presents and dinner?
14. What is your favorite holiday smell?
15. Ice skating or walking around the mall?
16. Do you open a present or presents on Christmas Eve, or wait until Christmas day?
17. Favorite Christmas memory?
18. Favorite Part about winter?
19. Ever been kissed under mistletoe?

(It's an easy copy and paste.)

1. Hot Chocolate or apple cider?
Hot chocolate, please.

2. Turkey or Ham?
Turkey, with lots of stuffing, and gravy. But this year we're making paella.

3.
Do you get a fake or real-you-cut-it-yourself Christmas tree?
Always real, but we go to a nursery to get it.

4. Decorations on the outside of your house?
A few lights and a simple Nativity scene but not this year - too busy renovating

5. Snowball fights or sleddin’?
Sledding - maybe.

6. Do you enjoy going downtown shopping?
I do, when I know what I'm going for and have time to enjoy the scene.

7. Favorite Christmas song?
Secular: Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Sacred: Away in a Manger

8. How do you feel about Christmas movies?
I like them if they aren't too corny. Borrowed Hearts was a made for television movie that I like. And some of the old classics like The Bishop's Wife.

9. When is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?
Umm, Valentine's Day?

10. Stockings before or after presents?
Before. Upon waking. Then breakfast. Then presents.

11. Go to someone else’s house or they come to you?
Both.

12. Do you read the Christmas Story? If so when?
Yes. To myself and together sometime when we're all together. 

13. What do you do after presents and dinner?
Play games. Talk. Go for a walk.

14. What is your favorite holiday smell?
The woodsy scent of a fresh Christmas tree, and cedar boughs.

15. Ice skating or walking around the mall?
Neither. But I'll go for a walk around the block.

16. Do you open a present or presents on Christmas Eve, or wait until Christmas day?
Again, it depends when we're all together. I like to wait until Christmas day.

17. Favorite Christmas memory?
Opening stockings on Christmas morning with all the children piled on our bed.

18. Favorite Part about winter?
The first snowfall.

19. Ever been kissed under mistletoe?
I don't think so - I'll have to remedy that!

I'm also linking this post to Sharon's at My Country French Home. She's asking for those who have their tree up to "show that sapin!"

Mine's simple this year. And you can see that I don't have all the curtains up yet. And no tree skirt. But little by little we're getting there.

  2. Lorrie I think this is a lovely idea and I plan on joining in just as soon as I have a tree to share.

  3. Yes! You definitely need to remedy that and it's so easily accomplished. :D

    Thank you so much for participating. I think I'm in trouble with you, though, if before Valentine's Day is too early for carols. We fall asleep every night to soft, very soft music. Of course, at this time of year, it's the Christmas cds. I never bother to change them until about March. Ha!

    Have a most wonderful day, Lorrie...

  5. Lorrie - I enjoyed reading your answers and thought how wonderful it would have been to have the children open stockings on your bed. I wish we'd done that! We had hand knitted stockings and one year I remember having to pin the bottom of my daughter's stocking together so I could slip it back on the needles and finish it soon after Christmas!

  7. Hello, Lorie,

    Our Christmas tree, purchased Monday, is in the garage because we are afraid it would be naked branches and needles on the floor if we put it up too soon. We're waiting for the arrival of the family to decorate together with champagne.

    I have a special request, if you would be so kind as to contact me "undercover" at tishjett@yahoo.com

    Merci par avance.

  11. Your tree is so pretty, I love loose branches so you can see the ornaments hanging.
    I'm going to send the meme out to friends, I think they are fun to do.
