What’s Your Kind of Christmas Tree?

You Should Have a Blue Christmas Tree

For you, the holidays represent a time of calm, understanding, and peace.

You avoid family fights, and you don’t get too stressed out – even when things are crazy!

You like to make Christmas about making everyone’s life a little bit better.

You don’t get caught up in greed or commercialism. You’re too sincere for that.

What is your favorite Christmas gift?
An angel ornament my Mom gave me for the Christmas tree many, many years ago. I still put it up when I actually do get the tree up.

What is your best memory of Christmas?
Sitting around the tree in our old house in Scarborough, Ontario. Everyone together on Christmas Eve, hot chocolate and the whole works.

Depending upon where you live, do you have a hot or cold Christmas?
Cold, more snow again today.

What do you prefer in a tree? Fake or real?
Fake cause the real trees shed too much. Plus the fake tree is nice to have every year the same tree and each time I have moved I move the same box with me. It’s become a traditional of it’s own.

What is your favorite Carol?
Silent Night. When I was a baby my Grandmother had given me a music box angel which played Silent Night. It doesn’t work now but it is still in the Christmas ornament box.

What is your favorite Christmas Dinner?
Whatever someone else makes. Homemade is best, we used to make everything, nothing came prepackaged.

Do you wear a Santa hat at Christmas?
No. A red sweater.

Have you ever seen Santa delivering gifts?
I’ve been Santa delivering gifts.

Santa Has Been Here

The kids are in bed, even the big kid who no longer believes in Santa Claus. He decided to sleep on the couch watching a Christmas movie. The Santa presents are under the tree. The parents are just about heading up to bed. I’m washing clothes and checking email. We cleaned up from the Xmas dinner and soup is being boiled from the turkey bones. The remaining wine is corked and in the fridge. The remaining cookies are on the counter for those who can still nibble.

How is that for 11:31 on Christmas Eve?

It’s Quiet..

The all day destruction constructions seems to be stopped now. It’s quiet. No hammering, no stomping, no sawing, no yapping or yelling. I have the TV on to watch some Christmas movie or other and I can actually hear it.


I made a tuna wrap for dinner. So good with fresh salad on it. I have to add pepper to my next grocery list. I missed it on the wrap tonight. It was still really good even without it.

Maybe I will put up the tree tomorrow. Still early, I thought I would put it all up after my birthday but I just thought of a good place to stick it, so it may get stuck there.

Tonight I plan to watch Christmas movies, wash dishes and make hot chocolate. What are your plans for the last weekend before Christmas Eve?
