Random Dozen -12/16/09

1. Gingerbread: For or against? Discuss. I love ginger snaps. Oh said ginger bread. hmmmm I make a scrumptious ginger/pumpkin trifle that uses ginger bread. So, I guess that's a for.

2. Is it important to you to always stay (live) close to family? I guess that's a no since I've lived hundreds of miles from my family most of my adult life. I do miss them, especially at holidays, birthday, and the like.

3. Which holiday pretend character do you wish really existed? Frosty the Snowman so we could sing and dance and play.

4. Which holiday movie best represents how you feel about Christmas or life? I'll have to get back to you on this one.

5. Is there a particular Christmas song that you're enjoying now? Any that you're tired of? I love the traditional Christmas songs: The First Noel, Silent Night, Away in a Manger, Hark the Herald. I never tire of them.

6. What is your favorite way to remember those less fortunate at Christmastime? Donating toys, coats, and food to various shelters.

7. Does it upset you to see "Xmas" instead of Christmas? How about "Happy Holidays" etc., instead of "Merry Christmas?" Nope. Merry Hannukwanzmas! As long as HE IS the central theme what does it matter?

8. How many Christmas programs are you attending this month? Sadly, only one. I missed the grand-boy's program because I didn't know about it. (That's a topic for another blog post.)

9. Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Any chance of that dream becoming a reality? I'm dreaming of it being white for Christmas at someone else's house. I'm so over snow and cold. Don't get me wrong, it's great to look at and play in (see #3), but it's such a bother to drive in. It's just hard to get that Harley down the road when there's snow on the roads.

10. Tell me about a Christmas present you received as a child. Pics are always nice. The one that still sticks out in my mind is a kitchen set I received when I was about 5. There was a sink, stove, and refrigerator. I loved it.

11. How many Christmas parties are you attending this month? Two down.....two to go.

12. How do you keep yourself centered on the significance of Christmas? By daily seeking God's help to show and tell others about the birth of Jesus.

Peace and Joy,

Luke 1:30-33 (NKJV)30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

Gingerbread pumpkin trifle sounds awesome. Yummy!

LOL. I got quite the vision of you driving down the snowy road on a harley with the snow coming down. That would be difficult. :vD

SouthLakesMom said...

Rule #1 - if you say something is yummy, you just gotta share the recipe...or a photo...or the aroma...(can't google do that last bit yet?)

Seriously, the idea of the Harley in the snow...ouch. Good answers!

Betty said...

I almost wish I could be as layed back about #7 as you are. It just rattles my chain when people try to take Christ OUT of Christmas.

When Frosty swirls to life on my front lawn I'll invite you to come play with us, k?

I'm so with you on #9! Of course it's no longer an issue since we're in the southern hemisphere now. But I'll be happy if the only snow I ever see is in photos. lol

That ginger/pumpkin trifle sounds really, really good! Just reading all the answers to this question makes me want to make a batch of gingerbread men :-)
