Sunday Stealing- Holiday questions


Holiday questions

1. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?  Remembering
why we celebrate in the first place.  This is when we celebrate the birth of

2. What’s the most annoying thing about this time of year?  Too busy

3. Who do you celebrate the holidays with?  My family on Christmas Day, but
Karl's family on some other days too.

4. Do you travel during the holidays?  not anymore.  We did when I was a kid.  
We went to celebrate the holiday with my Grandparents in Oklahoma, but
they have passed.

5. Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?  both.  I love giving people gifts, but
I also love getting things that other people give me.  One of my kids painted
a rock for me.  I love it.  I think about him every time I see it.  He painted
a little face on it.

6. Who is the hardest person to buy a gift for?  My son, he doesn't ask for much, 
and every time I have tried to surprise him with something I think he will love,
he hates it.  He loved everything this year and he bought me a gift for the first
time this year.  He got me a Beach Boys Greatest Hits CD (2 CD's actually).
I love it!

7. What is your traditional holiday meal?  ham, mashed potatoes/gravy, corn, 
dressing, deviled eggs, hot rolls and desserts.  I am thinking I will make my
cheesy burritos for New Year's Eve. though and that sounds good to me right
now.  Maybe some cheesecake too.

8. Does your town get decorated for the holidays?  not really.

9. Do you have a Christmas tree?  yes

10. If you have a tree, what is on top of it?  an angel

11. Do you decorate the outside of your house with lights?  oh yes! 
Lots of lights.

12. What is your favorite holiday memory as a child?  Being with family
especially my Grandparents.

13. What is your favorite holiday dessert?  pie...any kind.

14. Do you have a favorite holiday movie?  It's A Wonderful Life

15. What is your favorite holiday tradition?  Putting up the tree right after 
Thanksgiving, so we can enjoy it a long time.  My church does more of a
concert to celebrate Christmas.  Our Pastor used to do a skit called The
Innkeeper that told the story of the birth of Jesus through the point of view
of the Innkeeper.  I loved it.  That was a great church tradition I enjoyed, 
but he stopped doing it.  I think people wanted something different every year.


  1. Happy Christmas! I love the idea of "The Innkeeper"--too bad he doesn't do it anymore. Maybe he can bring it back? Have a great week.

  2. Merry Christmas (a day late - so happy Boxing Day). That sounds like an interesting perspective, from the innkeeper.

  3. I really missed Christmas music this year--no local choirs were singing due to (stupid) Covid.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

  4. We give our grown kids money and restaurant gift cards. They are real happy with that deal. :o)) I'm ready for the new year and new beginnings. Hope yours is extra special!
