Tuesday 4 - A Merry Little Christmas
Updated: Aug 21, 2022
Welcome to Tuesday 4 (the legacy of Toni Taddeo kept in her honor and memory). Thanks to Annie for today's four questions!
A Merry Little Christmas
Christmas is fast approaching for millions of people...
1. Do you have a favorite Christmas carol and if so is there a particular version you especially like? The classics like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, etc.
2. Do you have a special dinner for the holidays? What foods are included? This depends on who we are getting together with, and things have drastically changed in the last few years. We will be celebrating at home this year (again) and having a spiral ham, homemade mac n' cheese, veggies, dinner rolls, and definitely desserts, which will be including lemon meringue pie! 😋
3. Holiday movies ... which do you like to watch? I make it a habit to watch It's A Wonderful Life every year while wrapping gifts. I have been watching some really cute Christmas movies on Netflix here lately. Every year we watch Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty. It's a Christmas favorite, especially for our daughter, who was born the day after Christmas.
4. What traditions do you continue to keep year after year for the holidays? I love history and tradition, so I have always tried to keep a few things going that I experienced during childhood. Mail out Christmas cards. Yes, I still buy stamps and mail out cards to family and friends. There is just something more personal about a card. Planning one evening to go look at Christmas lights. My parents always took us out to go view the abundant decorations. One in particular was this lake where my grandparents used to live. They always decorated with beautiful lights. We still drive over there. An Advent calendar countdown to Christmas Day. My daughter loves to change the date daily. Listen to Christmas music. While some of the newer versions are not extremely bad, I will always prefer the classics. Christmas stockings have always been a huge tradition and my mom didn't care how old we were. We still had a stocking every year. It was the first thing that I tore into Christmas morning. 🤗
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! 🎄
