Sunday Stealing: Christmas Questions

From Sunday Stealing

Christmas Questions

1. Have you been naughty or nice this year?

A. I think that depends upon whom you ask. I am generally a nice person. This year I have become a bit more opinionated than in previous years, I think. I'm a little tired of so much stupid. It burns.
2. What do you want most for Christmas?

A. Good health. Acceptance of the fact that I have curiosity and not great passion. Here's an interesting video by Elizabeth Gilbert about accepting yourself as a curious person and not a passionate one. Watch it and see if you learn something. It's about 25 minutes long and well worth the time if you're still searching for something.
3. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

A. It's a Wonderful Life. It is interesting how it resonates so well today.
4. How many Christmas cards do you normally send out?

A. About 60.
5. Do you still get a stocking?

A. Yes. My husband and I have a little game where we fill stockings for one another.
6. What is your favorite Christmas song?

A. Do You Hear What I Hear? Here's a Mannheim Steamroller version of it, sans words.
7. What is your favorite Christmas TV special?

A. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (the original version). I fit in with the misfits. I'm independent!
8. What is your favorite way to wrap gifts?

A. With paper.
9. What do you look forward to most at Christmas?

A. Getting it over with. Well, not really. Some years, maybe. I like seeing family and friends, and I like the mystery of gift-giving. I like the decorations. I don't like the cold so much anymore.
10. What did you do for Christmas this year?

A. Same as every year. Put up a tree, placed some doo-dads around the house, wrapped presents, made fudge, went to a few parties.
11. Who do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?

A. My husband.
12. What kind of Christmas tree do you have?

A. We now are the proud owners of an artificial pencil tree.
13. Did you take part in a Secret Santa?

A. No.
14. Did you go to any Christmas parties?

A. Yes.
15. How early do you wake up on Christmas morning?

A. Usual time, sometime after 6 a.m. or so.

  1. We do stockings, too. Sometimes I think finding out what's in them is more fun than opening the "real" gifts. Have a wonderful Christmas and if we don't do a Sunday Stealing next week, then I wish a blessed and much better 2016 for you!

  2. At this time of the year, getting it over with isn't always a bad thing....

  3. I always sit here and laugh at your responses. Doo dads around the house.... LOL That cracked me up.

  4. Thanks for the link to Elizabeth Gilbert--what an interesting talk!

  5. I put out a few doo dads myself....but, not too many.

  6. I guess I've seen "It's a Wonderful Life" too many times. I'm really tired of it.

  7. doo dads. heehee. I liked the talk, too, but curious gets you in trouble sometimes as well. lol, just sayin...

    Merry Christmas, and I love that header you put up with some of the doo dads in it.

  8. 1 - Mostly nice, I'd say.
    2 - What I'd like most is a new TV, so I can actually see the edges of what is broadcast, esp since Fox insists on placing the scoreboard in the far left corner where it can't be viewed on older sets.
    5 - Yes, I still get a stocking.
    4 - 50 to 60
    10 - My sister's family was up Christmas Eve, so I spent a QUIET day alone. I slept until 9, then watched Christmas movies all day while stitching.
    12 - A three-foot artificial
    13 & 14 -- Nope.
    15 -- When I spend Christmas at my sister's, 7am and nap in the afternoon. This year? I slept until 9.
