I was tagged by my Cyber-Sista, Cheryl at CMash Loves to Read. Cheryl has tagged me, and I have no idea what this is all about, so I'm wingin' it here Sista!! She has a very well put together blog, and is probably one of the best readers in the world, and why we hit if off is beyond me because reading puts me to sleep. Although I did shock her one day, and I READ A BOOK! LOL So, if you read, and you want to know about books, head on over to Cheryl's at the link above, and check out her blog. Tell her Dolly sent ya... well, maybe not she might laugh to hard! So, let's get this tagging stuff on the road..
1. When do you usually know and feel that it's finally the holidays?
When I smell turkey on Thanksgiving.
2. What do you want for Christmas this year?
I've asked Santa for a Laptop this year, but I don't think Santa knows how to buy one so I'm really not sure if I'll get one, but I'm sure I'll get my bath powder with a cool powder puff. I love that stuff.
3. Do you go all out with decorations?
They use to call me Mrs. Claus, and people thought they were at the North Pole, but since my back has been giving problems I have downsized considerably, and believe me it does sadden me deeply.
4. What are you doing Christmas Eve?
Every year we spend it with my husband's family. One year it's at their house, and then mine. We take turns.
5. What are you doing Christmas Day?
My husband, and I will wake up, have coffee, and open presents. Later I will make brunch, and a small dinner not sure what yet. This year our Christmas will be the day after, and all my children will be there with their kids, and my brother and his wife. Pictures, fun, Lasagna, open presents make a mess, and then everyone will go home and I'll fall asleep on the couch.
6. It's Christmas time. What are you reading?
Nothing right now, but I just finished reading the Magic Warble. Totally loved the story, and can't wait for Part II.
7. Favorite movie to watch during the holidays?
I have all of the Christmas movies ever made.. or at least you would think so, and I watch them every year. Favorite? They are all my favorites. The first one I watched this year was Scrooge, and then It's a wonderful life. Today I watched Polar Express with my granddaughter after we came back from the show. We saw The Chronicles of Narnia Part III.
8. Favorite Christmas song?
I like Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree and Naturally Nat King Cole, The Christmas Song, and what would Christmas be without Bing!!! White Christmas!
9. Favorite holiday drink?
Frozen egg nog and brandy & a squirt of whip cream.
10. How is your Christmas shopping going?
Not sure. I shop all year long, and I forget what's hidden in the closet. I need to check that out before I shop anymore.
11. If you could spend Christmas Day anywhere else, where would you spend it?
I'd like to go back in time, and spend it by my gramma's house with my family. It was the happiest days of my life.
12. Any holiday traditions?
No, not really. Not anymore since my parents and grandparents are gone. The relatives just didn't keep them up.
13. Favorite thing about the holidays?
Being with all my children and family and PRESENTS AND DECORATING! LUV IT.
