I tried to finish this last night but I’m still having issues with my wrist and hand. Pretty sure I broke something or at least, fractured bone(s). Typing can be painful and using a mouse, almost impossible but here goes. Better late than never.
I’m tagging on to OHWords Christmas Tag. Apparently, bloggers post questions and you answer them in your own blog and share the link. I’m not the Christmas-y type so I’ll do my best.
1. What is your favorite Christmas Tradition?
I used to love filling my dining room table with Christmas goodies and snacks and having people drop by all day Christmas Eve. We’d have egg nog, my tree would be gorgeous and the Christmas tunes would be blaring. That was my old tradition.
Now, the tradition I look forward to is Christmas Day breakfast. Surprise, Sam likes breakfast food. After the presents are open and the mess cleaned up, we retreat to the kitchen to indulge in the annual breakfast. Last year, my sister in law made this amazing French toast bake. I hope she makes it again this year because quite frankly, I’ve been thinking about it ever since last Christmas
2. Where do you spend Christmas?
At my mother in law’s house in Pubnico, Nova Scotia.
3. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
I have 2.
Silent Night by Stevie Nicks
Carol of the Bells by the Trans Siberian Orchestra- you know the one that’s mislabeled as Metallica everywhere. I thought it was with Metallica up until today when I researched it. Color me disappointed.
4. Do you decorate before or after Thanksgiving?
I’m Canadian. Our Thanksgiving is in October. I usually wait until the second week of December. I’m not one of those fools that put holiday decorations and trees up in November. It probably stems from growing up with my father, The Grinch and The Grinch’s wife. We didn’t put up our tree until usually a week before Christmas.
5. Tinsel or garland?
Neither. It’s not the 70s anymore and I don’t feel like pulling tinsel out of my dog’s arse.
6. Who are you most excited to see this Christmas season?
Probably the little nieces. They’re so adorable. Blonde hair, big blue eyes and full of spunk.
7. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater?
Nope. But if I did it would probably be Doctor Who. I saw a Dalek Christmas sweater and I want it.
8. What is one Christmas food you cannot live without?
Now, I’m all about the lobster dip. And cashews. I love cashews.
9. Peppermint or gingerbread?
10. Have you ever tried fruit cake?
Yes. I love fruitcake. Preferably dark. I’m the only person I know that loves fruitcake. It’s spectacular with tea. If you receive a fruitcake this year and don’t want it, I’m considering opening a P.O box specifically for your fruitcake donations.
11. What is one thing you asked for this Christmas?
I don’t really ask for anything. I could use some socks and underwear. I need a new IPad. All of my devices are 5 and 6 years old respectively. it’s getting to be quite the hassle.
12. If you could be any Christmas movie character, who would you be?
I would be Clark Griswold and have a big old fashioned family Christmas complete with a bohemoth tree. Unfortunately, I am more like the Dad from A Christmas Story. “Frag-il-ay. Must be Italian.”
Well, there you have it. Feel free to tag along..
