Saturday 9: 'Tis the Season

5. What is your favorite holiday song? "The Little Drummer Boy"

6. What do you love about the holiday season? The magic of the moment, seeing people act in kind ways that is not normal for the.

7. What do you hate about the holiday season? Commercialism and consumerism.

8. Do religious ceremonies play a part in your holiday traditions? If yes, how? Not that I can think of.

9. Who will you spend the holidays with? My children, The Man, my brother - his wife and kids, my in-laws, and my dogs.


  1. I haven't started shopping either. I do this every year and every year I say I won't do it again next year.

  2. I love that you included your dogs in your last answer. Here I am, surrounded by my feline family, and I forgot to mention them!

  3. I totally agree with your #5 and #7. The commercialism is the worst part of the holiday. It is so sad. It wasn't like this when we were kids.

  4. I agree with #7. Hope you get all your shopping done.

  5. Have a great weekend! Yeah I agree with the commercialization! I soooo do not like that part!

  6. I love A Christmas Story! Hubby and I watch it on Christmas Eve every year.
    I have my list of Christmas movies up :)

  7. The Little Drummer Boy is one of those songs I can't get out of my head once it starts. Thanks a LOT!

    (just kidding. Merry Christmas, Shannon..)

  9. least it is a good song and thank you for the compliment.

    Social...We watch the 24 hour marathon each year!

  10. Geez. I thought the over the top commercialism of Christmas was the best part. My bad...
