I've been Holiday Tagged!?!

When do you usually know and feel that it's finally the holidays?
When my decorations are up and I have Christmas music playing in the background.

What do you want for Christmas this year?
Good, loving homes for all of the cats and dogs living in cages at shelters and Pet-Co.

Do you go all out with decorations?
I keep things simple but it's obviously Christmas since I don't have white lights and red velvet bows etc. up all year round! I love to visit the homes that go decoration crazy!

What are you doing Christmas Eve?
Relaxing, going to church, Christmas Eve is a nice quiet day for me.

What are you doing Christmas Day?
Eating, drinking, opening gifts - all that fun stuff

It's Christmas time. What are you reading?
This week I'm going to finish Cleo, The Tapestry of Love and read The Reindeer Keeper! I hoped to read several Christmas-themed books but my reading got a little off track because I was sick.

Favorite movie to watch during the holidays?
A Christmas Story is my very favorite Christmas movie! It's hilarious! Since I love the Katherine Hepburn/SpencerTracy movies I also enjoy 'Desk Set' this time of year.

Favorite Christmas song?
It's difficult to pick a very favorite, there are so many great ones... I love most of the music from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, especially The SugarPlum Fairies and What Child Is This? and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. I've also always loved The Little Drummer Boy and Silver Bells!

Favorite holiday drink?
EggNog! Just a small cup or two, but if there's Rum included....!

How is your Christmas shopping going?
Great! I use the internet, there's more selection & it's hassle free!

If you could spend Christmas Day anywhere else, where would you spend it?
Ireland, I love it there!

Any holiday traditions?
Christmas cookie baking and visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art Christmas Tree and the Rockefeller Center tree, visiting the stores with holiday-themed window displays.

Favorite thing about the Holidays.
Christmas carols, getting together with loved ones and the festive feeling in the air.

  1. I think my favorite film is A CHRISTMAS CAROL starring George C. Scott!

    Favorite drink? Maybe a sherry or Bailey's.

    When do I usually finally know it's Christmas? The day afterward. :)

  2. Amy thank you-I will re post about this. I see that we both like Christmas baking-I spent Sunday baking the entire day.

    How are the little children doing? Give them a Christmas hug for me.

    That's a very sweet wish you have for Christmas :-)
