Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!



For those who celebrate Christmas #1

Taken from Pinterest





What’s your favorite thing about the holidays?
Getting the family all together.  That is what I will miss this year.

Do you send out Christmas cards and if so how many do you send?
I haven't sent a CARD in more than 40 years.  I used to send >100 but the postage just got too high.  Now I design a Christmas letter, post it on line, and send an e-mail with a personal note to everyone on my list.  (I also link to it on this journal page all month)

Be honest: holiday newsletters. Love ‘em or hate ‘em?
Obviously I love them.  Some are great, some are boring, but all show the work of the writer, who wants to share information with his/her friends.  The boring ones I don't read, but I appreciate them anyway.

Be honest: photo cards. Love ‘em or hate ‘em?
Love 'em.  Like the letters, they show the family.  They are better than a card with a printed name on it and no note whatever.  Not worth the price of a stamp, IMO.

How soon do you start shopping?
December 26.  Seriously.  I shop for Christmas all year long.

Real or fake tree?
I prefer a fake tree, but some years it's more work than it's worth -- like this year.  This year we have a 4' artificial tree, which is just fine for the of us.

When do you put up your tree?
A week or so after Thanksgiving

When do you take down your tree?
January 6.

Describe your typical tree (size, decorations, type)
As said above, this year we have a 4' artificial tree.  All of our ornaments are "special," acquired (bought or gift) to symbolize something.  Like our "necropsy ornaments," all of which memorialize either our dead dogs or our dead kids.  As a now non-working theater critic, I bought this ornament for our tree this year.

What do you top your tree with?
When we have a real tree we have a lovely Santa that goes on the top -- lots of gold.  This year we have a home-made star that Marta made many years ago.

Do you put Christmas lights outside your house?
Ned bought some lights to wrap around the trunk of our tree outside this year.

Is there a wreath hanging on your door?

Do you hang up stockings?
Not to be filled, but I just discovered Ned put these up today.

Your favorite Christmas Movie(s)
Miracle on 34th St and White Christmas

Be honest: A Christmas movie you hate
It's a Wonderful Life

Favorite Christmas Song(s)
"Silver Bells," "The Grassy Knoel"

Be honest: If I hear this/these Christmas songs again I will throw up
Well "throw up" is a bit extreme, but I will be happy if I don't have to hear "Feliz Navidad" ever again.

Give or Receive?

Eggnog or Mulled Cider?
Egg Nog

Ham or Turkey?
