A CHRISTMAS QUIZ ABOUT ME


 THIS IS A REPEAT POST FROM LAST YEAR: 

I got this from MBKAT @ Emptynester LAST YEAR who got it from Sue @ Our really empty nest. I don't know where she got it but I think she made it up herself. If you decide to do this on your blog PLEASE let Sue know you are doing it so she can see the responses to her meme.

(1) What is your favorite Christmas movie?

The original Scrooge of course and secondly One Magic Christmas which doesn't count in the next question because it is such a good one.

(2) What is your LEAST favorite Christmas movie?

Any of those low budget sappy ones that they have churned out over the last 20 years. They always end with the girl realizing how much she loves the guy or how the workaholic needs their family.

(3) What is your favorite Christmas Song?

What Child is This.


(4) What Christmas song(s) drives you crazy?

I agree with MBKAT - I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus or All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.

(5) What is your favorite Christmas drink?

Champagne

 
(6) What is your favorite Christmas memory?

None from my childhood but I love every memory when my kids were little.

(7) What is the best toy/gift you've received on Christmas?

Though it wasn't really a Christmas gift it was given to me Christmas Eve. It was an opal necklace and you can read about it here. Oh wait I remember one year I got a full size (kid size) beauty parlor set. Fake dryer etc. Pretty cool.

(8) What is the worst toy/gift you've received on Christmas?


I can't think of anything awful. Just clothes that don't fit I guess.

(9) What do you LOVE about the holidays?

I love that everyone (almost)  tries to make the time of year special. I love the visitors and guests, the food and celebrations.

(10) What annoys you about the holidays?

That some people are told not to say Merry Christmas or that they can't have a Christmas tree or manger. I am not a religious person at all but let's face it...it is Christmas. If you don't want to celebrate it don't.

(11) Do you prefer star or angel on top of a Christmas tree? Or something else?

We have an angel but a star would also be fine with me. I suggested to another blogger today that she might put a bird's nest with an elegant feathered bird on top of hers. I think next year I might do that.

(12) What is your family favorite recipe at Christmas?

A big bowl of trifle made from the recipe I learned from an ex-boyfriend's Scottish mother over 35 years ago. My brother in law always told me I wasn't allowed through the door when we would go to their home for Christmas, unless I had that bowl of trifle with me. I never vary it. I am big on tradition.

(13) Are you a Grinch or a Who at Christmastime?

Always a Who

(14) Christmas light displays - Love them or Hate them?

I love the Christmas lights, sorry world. I hate the new LED lights, especially the plain white. They look like an old fluorescent light tube. The soft white LED is only slightly better. Yuck. Old school white twinkle lights please. 

(16) Christmas cards - do you send them, yes or no?


Almost always. I missed one year and everyone was soooo worried about me.

(17) What is the best thing about Christmas, in your opinion?

I think it is the spirit of giving. It should happen all year but I guess once a year is better than none. Also I love traditions and know that they are extremely important for kids. It helps them to feel grounded in this crazy world.

(18) What is the worst thing about Christmas?

Packing it all away...see next question.

(19) When do you put the tree up and take it down?

I put it up as early as possible in December or even late November. I am in Canada so our Thanksgiving is in early October. I take it down sometime in the first week of January but not too soon.

(20) Out of the 12 days of Christmas, which day and item would you want your truelove to give to you?

Five Gold Rings....duh. All the others either poop or create laundry.

(21) Why do you think that Grandma got run over by a reindeer?

Because she drank too much eggnog. (actually I am editing this answer...it was because of Antoine...see next question)

(22) Who is your favorite reindeer?

Antoine. No one ever hears about him but he was there for years. Oh yes he was. Had a little problem with drugs and had to leave. He was a great reindeer while he lasted though.

(23) Do you believe in Santa Claus?

People who don't believe get underwear for Christmas. And not the nice underwear.

(24) What is your favorite smell at Christmastime?

Evergreen cuttings.

(25) What would make you happy at Christmas this year?

To have my brother back in the family. No one knows where he is. His choice.

Dan Mcneil here to answer the Christmas questions.
1) The 1938 version of "A Christmas Carol" starring Reginald Owen as Scrooge.
Most people prefer the 1951 version with Alastair Sim as Scrooge. It is good, but I prefer the earlier version.
2) Most of the contemporary Christmas films fail miserably. There are to many poor ones. Plus they are forgetable.
3) "Carol Of The Bells" sung by a choir. Gives me goose bumps.
4) Alvin & The Chipmunks Christmas album.
5) Dom Peringnon
6) My mother's Christmas dinner.
7) Two wheel bike
8) Soap on a rope
9) Family
10) The advertisements starting in September.
11) A star was a tradition while growing up, but an angel is acceptable to me too.
12) A cookie my mother only baked as Christmas. So it was a traditional treat.
13) Have been both
14) Love them.
15) ?
16) I used to, but not in recent years.
17) It is a celebration of the birth of Jesus.
18) Our image of the jolly overweight man with white hair in a red suit that we think of as Santa is an image created by the Coca Cola corporation. The real Saint Nicolas was from Lycia, part of modern day Turkey.
19) The week before Christmas till the 6th of January.
20) Partridge in a pear tree.
21) Had a fling with Santa.
22) "Olive" the other reindeer.
23) Saint Nicholas was a real man.
24) The tree.
25) Having all of the family healthy and together.
