I've been hit!
It's okay. Go on without me.
-one eye pops open-
Wait a second..it's not fatal?
Pardon the dramatic interlude but it seemed appropriate for the day as both posts have to deal with the game of tag in one way or another. How so? You'll just have to check back later to find out...but let's get on with this post while we're here.
I was tagged by my good bloggish and bookish friend Michelle, better known as "the red headed book child" who keeps a blog by the same name. (Hi Michelle! ~waves~) It's really a great blog showcasing her love of life, musical theater and books all in one easy to read place. If you haven't stopped over there, might I suggest that you do? (Yes, I might...in fact I just did.) Oh and she's also hosting her very first reading challenge, the "2011 A-Z Mystery Author Challenge", that kicks off 01/01/2011 so if you're in the mood for a few good mysteries, check it out...I believe sign up is still open. (*crosses fingers*) Anywho back to my tag...
This holiday tag consists of a list of holiday type questions that I shall attempt to answer without boring you in a less than lengthy fashion since I too tend to get rather wordy at times...and then...I get to tag a few more people (muwhahahaha). Here we go!
When do you usually know and feel that it's finally the holidays?
Thanksgiving night. Traditionally that's when my family puts up all the Christmas decorations and so it adds the "ho ho ho" to the holidays.
What do you want for Christmas this year?
Do you go all out with decorations?
To some degree, yes...it really depends on the "theme" that year though.
For example, this year we have the house trimmed in white lights (roof, windows, door, garage), 6 white trees on the lawn, 2 moving reindeer (in, you guessed it, white lights), and the driveway lined in little Christmas trees and snow flakes (that yet again light up with white lights). ^_^
What are you doing Christmas Eve?
What are you doing Christmas Day?
When I was younger, waking Mom up at the crack of dawn.
Nowadays? Sleeping in a bit...then presents! ^_^
It's Christmas time. What are you reading?
Each year I try to read one version or another of that classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Other than that, I usually squeeze in a few holiday themed titles and whatever else catches my eye. A new favorite this year was The Christmas Chronicles by Tim Slover.
Favorite movie to watch during the holidays?
Favorite Christmas song?
Depends on the moment you ask me!
Right now, since I heard it in the car earlier....The Christmas Can-Can sung by Straight No Chaser.
Favorite holiday drink?
Hot chocolate with mini-marshmallows.
How is your Christmas shopping going?
A bit untraditionally this year, but done.
If you could spend Christmas Day anywhere else, where would you spend it?
Any holiday traditions?
Day after Thanksgiving shopping is a must!
The "Feast of the Seven Fishes" on Christmas Eve.
Driving through town just to look at all the Christmas lights.
Mom's Christmas cookies!
Favorite thing about the Holidays.
The overall feeling of happiness and joy that seems to permeate the air. It's too bad the feeling can't last all year.
