The Christmas Meme

I saw this meme on
Thoughts of a Regular Guy and decided to answer the questions.

Hot Chocolate or apple cider? I'll take a little of both, please.

Turkey or Ham? Turkey. I love ham, but avoid it due to the nitrites.

Do you get a Fake or Real you cut it yourself christmas tree?Artificial. I am allergic to the ones God makes.

Decorations on the outside of your house? Not this year, as we are living in an apartment until our house in IL sells. Maybe next year.

Snowball fights or sledding? Sledding.

Do you enjoy Going downtown shopping? Yes, although it's more window shopping than actually spending money.

Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night

How do you feel about Christmas movies? The best movies usually come out at Christmas time.

When is it too early to start listening to Christmas music? Christmas music is great anytime, but it is extra beautiful during the Christmas season.

Stockings before or after presents? Before.

Carolers, do you or do you not watch and listen to them? I listen and thank them for sharing God's gift of music with me.

Go to someone else's house or they come to you? I go somewhere else.

Do you read the Christmas Story? If so when? I would love to have little ones to read to. This year, someone read it at a Christmas party we attended.

What do you do after presents and dinner? Play with the new toys and fall asleep.

What is your favorite holiday smell? Pine cones

Ice skating or walking around the mall? The mall.

Do you open a present or presents on Christmas Eve, or wait until Christmas day? Early Christmas Morning -- after Midnight Mass
Favorite Christmas memory?
Dressing as an angel in the children's procession at Christmas Midnight Mass (which was held at Midnight). I loved staying up late and I loved that costume which my mother made especially for me. I still remember my golden halo, which made me a legitimate angel.

Favorite Part about winter? Watching the beautiful snowflakes fall while I am safe and warm inside cuddling up with my husband and my cat.

Ever been kissed under mistletoe? Yes.

Anyone who would like to answer these questions may.

Christmas Story or A Christmas Carol?
(I love both.)
I would kill for a real tree.
Rick and I always just put up the fake one we got the first year we were married. We lived in an apartment and they didn't allow real trees.
I miss real pine trees. :(

I can empathize with you about the real trees.

Every year I would get flu-like symptoms around Christmas and finally learned that it was the real trees that were making me sick due to allergies.

How I miss the scent and the natural beauty of a real tree!

We lived for 13 years at our last home, where we saw our baby blue spruce grow from 5 ft. to 12 ft. We decorated our outdoor Christmas tree with lights every year. I miss it so much!

One thing I don't miss about real trees is cleaning up the mess of the needles afterwards.

God bless you,
