Christmas Tag


Christmas Tag!

Hello dears! My sweet friend Vickie sent me a Christmas
tag . . . so fun! If anyone would like to answer these please feel free to copy
and write your own answers. It’s a lot of fun!

What’s your favorite Christmas song?

Hmm . . . I love Christmas songs. LOVE THEM. I
listen to them in July; I suppose my absolute favorite Christmas songs are
“Peace on Earth” from the opening scene of “Lady and the Tramp” and  “A Soldier’s King”
sung by Kenny Rogers.

 

 

 

Do you change your favorite Christmas song every year?

 Not
really 

What Christmas song do you hear the most?

“I’ll be Home for Christmas” 

Does your family mostly agree on what Christmas music to listen to
or are you constantly changing the song?

We’re all pretty traditional when it comes to
holidays so we often listen to well-worn, well-loved songs.  

Who’s your favorite Christmas movie side character?

Oh dear. I’m afraid I don’t watch a lot of Christmas
movies. Would it suffice to say I love
Jimmy Stewart?  

Besides George and Mary Bailey who’s your favorite character in It’s a Wonderful Life?

Violet Bick   

Do you like Santa Claus in Miracle On 34th Street?

I’ve never seen it! 

Vera Ellen or Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas?

Haven’t seen that either! 

Bing Crosby or Danny Kaye?

Oh dear. May I ask who Daddy Kaye is?

In my defense, I believe Mr. Crosby has a lovely
voice.  

Besides “White Christmas” what is your favorite song from
the movie?

Haven’t seen it  

What’s your favorite (or one of your favorite) lines from a
Christmas movie?

Has anyone watched “Seasons of the Heart”? That is
a dear movie. I enjoy the scene when little Danny repeats the story of Jesus’
birth while playing. So broken and sweet.

Do you own a special ornament?

My favorite ornaments are the one’s my grandmother
gave my momma. Those are sweet.

Did you break any ornaments this year?

Not yet but we only put it up a week ago.

What’s the oldest ornament on your tree and where did it come from?

My mom’s ornaments from her childhood

 Do you like pretty trees or fun trees better?

Pretty 

Have you ever had a fake tree?

Afraid not! 

Green tree or a different color?

I prefer green trees best. I’m a bit of a
traditionalist. J 

Who sweeps up the pine needles and waters the tree?

Since we use a fake tree we try not to water it
too often . . . you know, not really necessary. However, we all pitch in and
sweep around it when necessary.   

Have you made any Christmas crafts this year?

I’ve made Christmas cards . . . wonderful fun!

Does your family read a Christmas story every year?

It seems that Mom and Dad tend to take turns
each year reading sometime in the afternoon.

If so, which one?

Luke

What do you do on Christmas Eve?

Christmas Eve is my favorite.
At the end of the day Momma and Daddy give us each a wrapped gift of new
pajamas . . . a wonderful idea which replenishes the tattered pjs of old. 

How many Christmas’s do you usually have?

Just one 

Marshmallows or whipped cream in your hot chocolate?

Mmm . . . marshmellows 

Do you like the flavor cinnamon or peppermint better?

I dislike cinnamon and a like pepperment 

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Living in Alaska for 16 years ensured me of this
blessing 

Ice skating or driving around looking at Christmas lights?

Can we please do both? I have so many good
memories of cleaning our pond and skating about and also driving with my dad
and mom downtown looking at lights.  

Do you like the blow up Christmas decorations people put in their
yards?

Hmm . . . I personally don’t care for them but I
like to see everyone’s different personalities  

What is something you are going to do new this year to celebrate?

This year our Christmas is going to be a little
less and a little more homemade. J I’m finding
it sweeter than normal.

Have you ever celebrated Hanukkah?

No, I haven’t 

How many people are you giving presents to this year?

Ha! Like I wrote my sister, “I’m as poor as a boon-dock cat with one eye and a limp during the 1930’s Depression.”  I can’t even afford the atm fee.  🙂
At first I was pretty
discouraged and wondered what I could give.

Then I remembered my card making supplies.

They’re simple but full of homemade love.  

What’s your favorite kind of Christmas card to receive?

I love cards which are personalized: pictures, a
sweet note . . . 

Do you eat breakfast first or open presents first?

Open presents first and then have our
traditional breakfast of coffee and cinnamon rolls

Stockings first or last?

First 

What present do you really want this year?

 Oh dear.
Well, I am hoping for a copy of Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secrets and a few new shirts. 

Do you like a star on the top of your tree or an angel?

Star

Do you like the color red or green better?

Both! My family has lovely, soft green walls in
the living and kitchen and I love it. Red, however, is beautiful in small
accents.  

Silver or gold?

Well, I don’t wear jewelry so I don’t really
have a preference concerning that. But I do like soft, metallic silver which is
quite pretty.

One word to describe Christmas?

Christ
 
* * * 

I really am excited for Christmas
this year. My parents have done a really good job making it a time for sweet
fellowship and family time. They have also emphasized the real reason for
Christmas—giving thanks for Christ’s incarnation.

I hope that each of you have a
blessed Christmas. May your hearts be filled with hope and encouragement!
” Let this mind be in you, which was also in
Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it
not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a
man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the
cross. Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the
earth; And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:5-11
