Welcome to Sunday Stealing - hosted by Bev Sykes.
For those that celebrate Christmas part 2
Star or Angel? Bow. White Lights or Colored Lights? Usually multi-colored. Blinking Lights or Still Lights? We have ours set to a very slow twinkle. My husband cannot handle any type of blinking or flashing lights due to his TBI. When do you open your gifts? Between 9am and 11am. Christmas morning. 🎁 Do you buy gifts for your pet? Yep. Doggo got a new rope toy with a tennis ball and the hairballs got little catnip mice toys. Be honest: What's the worst gift you've ever gotten? Nope. No such thing, even if you do not like the gift that is given. Have you ever traveled for the holiday? Not really. The closest we have gotten to holiday travel was when we went down to Galveston for Dickens on the Strand for two weeks at the end of November and into the first week of December. Did you see Santa as a child? My mom always took me to see Santa. 🎅 Sadly, I did not follow this tradition with our kids. The first time we took our son, I thought Santa was going to have a heart attack. It was that bad. Our daughter having Autism really hasn't been a good fit either, so we chose to view Santa from a distance all these years.
Can you name all the reindeer? Absolutely!! Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph! Have you ever gone caroling? Yes. It has been a few years though. The last time was when I was Co-leader of our GS troop. Our girls went to a local nursing facility and sang for the residents and made Christmas cards. Do you drive around and look at the Christmas lights? Every year on Christmas Eve (or the day before) - it's a tradition. LOL. We grabbed Sonic this year and took off to some of our favorite spots - like Luther Lake.
Have you ever left Santa cookies? Santa has cookies and milk set out for him every year, as well as a carrot snack for the reindeer. This year Santa got homemade Rice Krispie treats, too! 🍪🥕 Have you ever had a white Christmas? Um, Texas is not not really known for a White Christmas. In fact, I believe the last time we had an actual White Christmas on Christmas Day was in 2009. Have you ever made a gingerbread house from scratch? From a kit? Both, and neither turned out like they should have. LOL! 😄 Be honest: Do you think the season is too commercial? Oh yes! When you have to start advertising in October for Christmas, it's for money - period. Imagine you were going to create the quintessential holiday soundtrack -- which song(s) absolutely must be included? All the Christmas classics! What are your Christmas pet peeves? Can we just celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving BEFORE any Christmas stuff starts getting put out?? So commercialized!!!
