Christmas Quiz!

My Dear Friend, Samantha, did a Christmas quiz.  I love Christmas time, so I thought I would join in.  She did this a couple days ago, but I hadn't really been on here to check out every one's blogs!

Any way, here goes!

~Christmas Favorites Quiz~

1. Three of your favorite Christmas carols:

"O Holy Night"
"What Child is this?" (I think that is a carol??)
"Hark the Harald Angels sing"

2. Three Favorite Christmas songs:

"One Small Child"
"Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
"Deck the Halls"

3. Four favorite Christmas traditions:

1) Driving around town after shopping looking at all the beautiful lights and sipping cocoa while Christmas music is playing in the car.
2) Shopping for Stocking stuffers (we don't do Santa Claus, but instead go and buy little things for each other. No one knows who bought who what. It is lots of fun trying to shop in a tiny store without any one seeing what is in your basket!)
3) Getting up on Christmas morning and reading the Christmas story, then eating our Christmas Breakfast (I love eating breakfast first before opening presents because it helps us to focus on the real reason for Christmas!)
4) Watching "It's a Wonderful life" or "Christmas Carol" on Christmas eve
4. Three favorite holiday cookies

Ooh, that is hard.. we don't really have cookies very often, believe it or not. We don't eat desserts very often. ;-) However, my favorite holiday cookies would be Pecan Pinwheels, Shortbread cookies (that melt in your mouth!), and those cookies with the little bit of jam in the middle (thumbprints??)

5. Does your Christmas tree have a theme ( snowflakes,
nature, red & green, etc.) or just a collection of ornaments?

Just lights (whatever works each year!) and all the different ornaments we have collected or made over the years.

6. Three favorite Christmas ornaments

My Ballerina dancer (used to be in ballet.. surprise, surprise), Our Pretty "drip drop" glass ornament (which unfortunately broke this year *sob*) and my little bell with the mouse hanging on the rope (which I received from my Great-Aunt and Uncle when I was born!)
7. Do you like snow?


8. Hot chocolate or coffee?

I can't drink coffee in the evenings, so I prefer hot chocolate.. especially after a cold morning of milking the cow or breaking ice with my brother!!
9. Do you decorate indoors and out?

Only inside. We live out in the middle of nowhere so no one can see our lights. ;-)
10. Do you like to decorate before Thanksgiving, or after?
After.. I agree with you, Samantha.. before Thanksgiving would be a bit early!
11. Name 3 things you like doing in the snow:

Snow ball fights
Walking in the wonderful, cold blanket
Trying to build a fort (we never do finish.. either because there isn't enough snow or because we never have enough time.. lol!)

12. Do you usually make at least one
handmade gift for someone each year?

Most (or all) of my gifts are homemade

13. Name one of your favorite Christmas books:

The Candy Cane (it is a children's book, but I really enjoy that one. :-) )

14. Favorite Christmas movies?

~It's a Wonderful Life
~Charlie Brown Christmas
~Christmas Carol
~Muppet Christmas carol
~The Christmas box (and the prequel.. can't remember the name!)
Thanks for doing this, Samantha!! That was fun!!!
Hope y'all will do it too.  If you do, let me know!

Ink Slinger,

You know, we really ought to decorate outside. Don't you think the cows would really enjoy it?? It would be like a drive up-er, saunter up movie! They just need to bring some grass and cake feed to munch on during the 'show'... Ooh, maybe we could even upgrade to flashing lights to give them a REAL treat! ;)

Martha Joy,
Can't wait to see your answers!! Let me know when you post them...
