It's time for another Girl Talk hop. This week's theme is all about ... Christmas, of course!
1. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
This is a tough one because I have many that I love. The Grinch (the original animated one, NOT the one with Jim Carrey), Miracle on 34th Street, The Santa Clause trilogy (with Tim Allen), just to name a few. But if I must pick a favorite, I'd have to go with A Charlie Brown Christmas.
We have this (and many others) on DVD, but I still look forward to seeing it on TV every year. My favorite part is when Linus explains the true meaning of Christmas to Charlie Brown. Love that!
2. What is your favorite Christmas song and why?
This is another tough one, because I love many Christmas songs. I just posted a few days ago O Holy Night by Third Day. Love it! However, being the huge Snoopy fan that I am, I'd have to go with Snoopy's Christmas. I found a few videos on You Tube for your enjoyment. :)
3. What is your favorite ornament or Christmas decoration?
We let the kids pick out a new ornament each year, so I can't really say I have one favorite one because that would not go over well. :) But I do love the fact that a former co-worker of mine still makes me a new ornament each year. He's into woodworking and has been making ornaments each year since about 1997? They are each unique and I look forward to receiving them. Although I try not to expect one, because, frankly, I'm surprised he still gives me one, since I haven't been working for 5 years now. Here is a picture of last year's ornament.
How detailed and intricate they all are! I really need to take a picture of each one and make a scrapbook page. Because I love them all! Thanks, Bob!
4. What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
Picking out a new ornament each year with the kids.
5. What is your favorite Christmas memory?
Well, my memory isn't that great when it comes to childhood, but I can remember coming down one Christmas morning and finding a new bicycle by the tree. That was pretty exciting because we didn't usually get much for Christmas since there were 5 kids and my parents didn't have much money. I didn't even realize it at the time that it was a boy's bike (or else I didn't care). My mom got my brother, Paul, and me matching bikes.
Well, that was fun! Hop on over the Girl Talk to play along!
