just for grins

I haven't done a meme in a while, and it seems like Christmas memes are as ubiquitous as cold viruses this time of year.  So, I went ahead and caught one:

1. The Christmas song I can even listen to in June is…I like "Carol of the Bells" ... or anything by Elvis.

2. Hot chocolate, egg nog or mulled wine?I'm going  with the mulled wine.  Hot chocolate is a close second, but egg nog to me is like phlegm mixed with ridiculous amounts of sugar.

3. When do you put your decorations up?Uhm... *cough*ahem* ... I'll get back to you on that one.

4. What are you having for Christmas dinner?The plan is ham and scalloped potatoes.  That usually gets devoured pretty efficiently.

5. What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?
Well, it's not really a Christmas tradition, but I get a kick out of our midnight mile on New Year's. 

6. Have you ever gone carol singing?Yes, but not since high school.

7. When did you discover the truth about Santa?I'm not sure at what age, but I'm pretty sure it was one of my brothers what ruined it for me.

8. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Tell the kids, "'kay, decorate!".

 9. What’s the best thing about Christmas?
The whole family having time off from school and work and being stuck together. 

10. All I want for Christmas is.....If Cookie the cat somehow returned, that would be nice.

Now, please join me in a little "what if?":



  1. Love the meme. I might steal it. :-)

    Love the video. The original has always been one of my favorites since I was a kid, but strangely, I was not offended. It cracked me up! 'Specially when the snowman poured a little hooch in his cup!

  2. You run on New Year? That is dedication!

  3. I'm still working on our decorations. I hope to have them up by next weekend.

    Love the video. I'll have to add it to the list of holiday favorites.

  4. No red nose... How tragic.

    Whew! Glad that didn't really happen. I love that song! :)

    By the way, the Temptations (I think it was them) have a Motown 60s version of the song. You've reminded to look it up.

  5. My daughter really liked that video. She l.o.l.'d!
