Sunday Stealing: A Christmas Meme

Link up here if you're playing along today!

1.The Christmas song I can listen to even in June is...

"The First Noel," which I actually probably do sing every month of the year!

2.Hot Chocolate, Egg Nog or Mulled wine?

Hm. Any of them, depending on the occasion and my mood.

3.When do you put your decorations up? 

I like to get started after Thanksgiving is over, but definitely by the first weekend in December.

4. What are you having for Christmas dinner? 

We usually just do a bunch of appetizers.

5.What is your favorite Christmas tradition? 

Ever since Hubs and I were dating, we've done Twelve Days of Christmas. We continue that with our kids to this day (though we kinda got a late start this year). I really like it, because it gives the children a chance to spend quality time with each present instead of just scrambling through all the presents and not savoring each one.

6. Have you ever gone carol singing? 

I have. I remember doing it a few times as a youth, with my family. I know we got caroled once or twice ourselves in Virginia Beach, too. That was fun.

7. When did you learn the truth about Santa? 

I remember learning when I was five or so, with my sister and friend Ursula, all at once one year. I don't remember being too devastated. My kids all know.

8. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? 

We usually make a big deal out of it, but we haven't put our tree up inside this year because the house is too small and it would take over, and we have kittens who would just knock it down. We put up a lighted tree on the front patio instead.

9. What's the best thing about Christmas? 

Peace and joy

10. All I want for Christmas is... 

Peace and joy! :D
