It’s a good thing blogmas corresponds with the date. I thought it was the eighth for some reason. .
Happy blogmas day #3, everyone!
Today was a guilt-filled lazy day. I wrote a post on How To Talk Yourself Out of Cutting Your Hair that, hopefully, was good, watched a whole movie which I haven’t done in forever, and tonight I taught at church, where one of my kindergartners brought a sheet of “special stickers” to share with everyone.
I got one too. I picked the tea cup, which warranted a funny look because I guess in her mind the tea cup was a crazy choice.
I need to hand it to her when she called these special. This sticker does not want to come off.
And honestly I’m scared to peel it off, because I think it’ll hurt.
I don’t have much else to write about so I’m going to do the Christmas tag! (Credit where credit is due, I’m totally copying and pasting from www.lazythoughts.co.uk. I just met the writer of the blog, Megan, today, but I already like her and her blog.)
1. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
That would be, hands down, White Christmas. I love old movies, especially during the Holidays. I like It’s A Wonderful Life, too, but at the same time I’ve always found it depressing, which you probably think is weird.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
I like Christmas morning best. I like to be awake for when I open presents, and I like to look forward to it. For the past couple years, I’ve been overruled by my family, though, who would rather wait the twenty minutes after cleaning up from our Christmas Eve party for midnight to strike and open presents then.
3. Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?
If I say no, I sound like I have a sad childhood, which is a lie. I’m just not having anything stand out in my memory at the moment, so I couldn’t call anything my “favorite.”
4. Favorite festive food.
DESSERT! Otherwise potatoes. I like potatoes.
5. Favorite Christmas gift.
Could you really pick one out of a lifetime? Every year, I have favorites. But there’s no way I could pick just one. . I have a miniature tree made out of twisted copper wire and red stones that I got one Christmas. And a different Christmas I got a bicycle with the words Free Spirit on it, which I loved.
6. Favorite Christmas scent.
Christmas trees and ham. We have ham on Baby Jesus’ birthday, Baby Jesus who was a Jew and can’t eat ham. I didn’t put any of this together until someone at my coffee shop mentioned it.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
We usually go to church and then have a whole bunch of people over for dinner and homemade desserts.
8. What tops your tree?
A sparkly copper star.
9. As a kid, what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Pretty sure I started off my Christmas lists with “One Million Dollars” for a few years. It’s kind of fitting. I just wrote a post on how to make a million dollars on Monday.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
I love the tradition and beauty of it. The decorating. The thinking about real things like being thankful and loving God for sending his son to live just as we live. I love buying presents and wrapping presents and putting them under the tree. I just love it all.
