Hi! 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!

1. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Getting together with family.

2. What’s the most annoying thing about this time of year?
Before the pandemic, I found the crowds at stores annoying, but since I did all my shopping on line this year, I never saw any other shoppers.

3. Who do you celebrate the holidays with?

This is a photo from 2019, the last time the family all got together for Christmas.  This year it will just be the four of us -- Walt and me, Ned and Marta.

4. Do you travel during the holidays?
Not usually.  I'm the one hosting the big dinner.

5. Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?
Oh definitely giving.  I spend all year looking for gifts for the family.

6. Who is the hardest person to buy a gift for?
Walt.  Absolutely no question.  For some reason, he almost never uses any gift he receives from anyone.  We found shirts in boxes under the bed that his mother had given him years before.  The only time I bought him a gift that I knew he would use was when I bought him wine...and last year when I gave him forever postage stamps in interesting designs.

7. What is your traditional holiday meal?
We have turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.  With stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans.  This year my friend Kathleen gave me a great recipe for a fruit salad I was looking forward to making, but it makes too much for four of us.

8. Does your town get decorated for the holidays?
The "town" no but lots of houses decorate. My former boss at the newspaper has a great house, full of Peanuts and other cartoon things.  He usually wins best decorated house each year.

We haven't been to see it this year.

9. Do you have a Christmas tree?
We have a smallish artificial tree, about 4' tall.

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

11. Do you decorate the outside of your house with lights?
Ned has twined lights around two big tree branches.

12. What is your favorite holiday memory as a child?
The night my sister and I (still believers) heard Santa ho-ho-ho'ing as he put presents under our tree.  We were too afraid to go out of our bedroom to see him, but I really remember hearing him.

13. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Pumpkin pie.

14. Do you have a favorite holiday movie?
White Christmas (just saw it this afternoon)

15. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
When the kids were growing up, every Christmas they put on a variety show, The Egg Nog Gala, with music and skits.  I loved those shows.
