Old School Blogging: Holiday Edition

4 years ago

Credit for this Old School Blogging idea once again goes to the lovely Olive To Run, as this appeared in my inbox yesterday I believe.  Well, her version did… To read her answers and check out her fantastic blog, click HERE!

First things first: 1 Holy Night or 8 Crazy Ones? (Do you Celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, both?) One Holy Night.

Peppermint or Chocolate? Gosh can I have them together?  Always?  PLEASE!?

Sing us into the Holiday Season, what is your favorite Carol this time of year? Carol of the Bells always has been my favourite.  The words aren’t over the top, but the melody is sooo beautiful, it just sounds like Christmas to me.  Especially when done by string instruments.  Check this out by the Cellist from The Piano Guys.  Phenomenal.  The medley with God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen just gives me shivers.

Tell us about a Favorite Family or Personal Holiday Tradition. I love it when my Mom comes down and we get to put up and decorate my Christmas tree together.  We used to do it together every year while watching the Toronto Santa Claus Parade.  Now that we aren’t together on that day anymore, we just pick a time when she’ll be at my place close to Christmas (happened to be November 30th this year) and watch a Christmas movie while we decorate.  I looove it.

C’mon you remember your favorite  (Christmas, Hanukkah) gift, tell us all about it: Honestly gifts aren’t a huge deal to me, but something that stands out is a couple years ago my Dad and step-Mom got me a couple more Wii controllers and games for Christmas and I had brought the Wii system with me to Grandma’s, and I played with them and my brother and it was a lot of fun.  It was nice to have the people who gave me the gift be able to enjoy the gift WITH me!

That magical moment? (Your favorite scene from a Holiday movie…it’s okay if you have 2)    When Clay (Randy Travis) and Carolyn (Connie Sellecca) have a snowball fight out in a field and remember why they fell in love with each other in the first place in A Holiday To Remember (1995).

Kissing under the mistletoe?  Who do you hope is standing underneath (We know it’s normally your spouse, if it did not have to be, who would you choose?)  If it did not have to be my spouse, which it doesn’t, cuz I don’t have one…. and the other person did not have a spouse… if spouses were not in the picture… lol this is getting awkward.  Luke Bryan.

Swans a swimming, lords a leaping, golden rings; which gift of the 12 days of Christmas would you like most? I feel like absolutely none of those gifts have any practical application to me.  I guess I could sell the golden rings?

Play Secret Santa, what inappropriate gift would you love to give this year? Coal.

Martha Stewart or the Grinch? What is your decorating style? SNOWMEN!

What is ONE WORD that defines the holiday season for you? (Examples: Believe/Wonder/Bah Humbug?) Christ

If Santa could assure its delivery, what’s the first thing on your holiday wish LIST?  Real love to everyone.  Not preachy hypocrisy in the name of Jesus… REAL LOVE.
