1. What is one new holiday tradition you'd like to establish, or one you've established recently, say in the last year or two?
2. It's the second week of December. Have you sipped a cup of eggnog yet this month? Wrapped a gift? Opened a gift? Kissed someone under the mistletoe? Lit a candle? Eaten a Christmas cookie? Seen Santa in person? Watched a Christmas movie or special? Read scripture relating to the birth of Jesus?
No, haven't sipped any eggnog yet but have wrapped a whole bunch of gifts. Haven't opened a gift just yet, have kissed someone, but not under the mistletoe. ~smile~ I've lit a candle and have eaten some Christmas cookies. I haven't seen Santa in person just yet but likely that will happen this weekend. I've watched 2 Hallmark Christmas movies but have not read any scripture relating to the birth of Jesus just yet.
3. Do you think it's better to be an adult or a child at Christmastime? Explain.
Hummm.........there's nothing like the excitement of a child in anticipation of Christmas and there's nothing like being an adult and enjoying the anticipation of that child. I thoroughly enjoy being an adult at Christmas but I'm quite sure I thoroughly enjoyed being a child at Christmas "once upon a time" as well.
4. It's often said, 'Good things come to those who wait'...agree or disagree? Why?
5. What's the last sweet thing you baked? Did you keep it, take it to a party/event, or give it away?
Well, yesterday I baked cookies all afternoon long. They were sort of a "glorified" Chocolate Chip cookie and the recipe made about 10 dozen and I thought I never would get through baking them. I will definitely be sharing them, we would never eat this many cookies but 'tis the season to give "sweets to eat."
6. This question comes to us courtesy of Jhona who blogs over at The Red House at the End of the Lane. Everyone hop over and say hi to Jhona this week! Here is her question... "I heard an actor talk about how he makes a conscious choice to talk to people in elevators. He chooses to connect, make eye contact, and converse. Do you talk to people/strangers when you're in an elevator or any other place where you might have to wait together? Why or why not?"
I will generally speak when I get on an elevator but I usually do not have a full blown conversation. It really bothers me when I am in a Drs. waiting area and there are folks making conversation with anyone that will listen to them. I love to talk but am not into loud conversations with a room full of folks that I do not know from Adam. ~just sayin'~
7. Are you on the naughty or nice list this year? What put you there?
