You'll Shoot Your Eye Out, Kid!

Favorite Christmas Movie: As if you had to ask! I'm pretty sure I have pounded the point home that Christmas Vacation is my all time fave. Coming up a close second is A Christmas Story. Watching those two during the Christmas season is MANDATORY! Oh, and I'm pretty sure I have never seen Love, Actually. Will I be stoned to death?!

Least Favorite Christmas Movie: Perhaps I will be stoned to death again when I tell you that I really can't stand the claymation Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Really.

Favorite Christmas Song: Gotta go with the other ladies... O Holy Night is pretty dang moving. I particularly like John Berry's version. And then other hymns. And then all of your other standards. (We have the Time Life Christmas Treasury which is fantastic, I must say!)

Least Favorite Christmas Song: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. Shot me now. And then turn your sights on that damn reindeer who ran over Grandma, without whom there would be no need for that blasted song.

Favorite Christmas Food: On Christmas morning I love to do as my mother, sister and I used to do and eat quiche and drink mimosas. I'm the only one that does it now, unless I'm with either of the other ladies, but I do it all the same.

1 Thing I WANT for Christmas: a new pair of running shoes

1 Thing I NEED for Christmas: a washer and dryer

1 Thing I'm Excited to GIVE for Christmas: all of the things Ella wants from Santa: a new bike, a shovel (for real!) and a Little Einstein's globe.

1 Thing I HOPE for Christmas: That during all of the bustling around we are able to stop and remember what it's all about.

Random Christmas Item I'm Going to Share with the Bar: I've got a few: Like Andi, I love to just sit and look at the Christmas tree and hang lights up everywhere. I also LOVE to go to a Christmas Eve night service and come out of the church right after midnight, relishing in the first minutes of Christmas day. And I like fruitcake. There, I said it. SO.... Am I the only one that likes both fruitcake and eggnog?!

3 tips left at the bar:

I really can't believe you're not a fan of Rudolph...that makes me a little bit sad! But I'm with you on the Christmas services. I love walking out of church when it's cold & all the stars are out & it's so peaceful and quiet...
