Monday Mahem on Tuesday

1. What is your favorite holiday show/animated show?

My favorite is It's a Wonderful Life. I like watching almost all of the holiday movies, but this has always been my favorite.

2. What holiday character do you think you're most like?

With all that I dealt with this weekend, I kind of feel like Charlie Brown right now. Seems like nothing ever goes right. In the end, all my friends and family surround me with love!

3. What holiday character does your spouse think you're most like?

She says she can't think of any.

4. Favorite Christmas/holiday song?

Little Drummer Boy. I love Christmas music and started listening almost two weeks before Thanksgiving on XM Radio. My great grandma (Granny) always loved Little Drummer Boy and I've come to love that song.

5. Most hated Christmas/holiday song?

I don't think I hate any. I think that Lady Gaga's Christmas Tree song is a little weird though. I just saw it on Amazon as a free download, so I thought why not. It's strange...of course, she's pretty strange anyway.

6. If you have an all holiday music radio station when do you start listening to it?

As I said above, I started listening a couple weeks before Thanksgiving on Holly and Holiday Traditions on XM Radio.

7. If you have an all holiday music radio station do you love it or hate it?

I absolutely love it. I don't think my radio will be switched off these channels until Christmas is over.

8. Have you ever wrapped yourself as a Christmas/holiday present? Come on...you can tell!

I have never done this. Wonder if that would be an acceptable gift for my wife...probably not...lol. Nah, I'll get her something better than me!

9. Who is Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer's father?

Blitzen? I have no idea, but that was the first reindeer name that came to mind.

10. Do you drive your neighborhood or one near you at night to look at other people's holiday decorations?

We went out with the in-laws checking out Christmas lights. We also looked a little one night on the way home from the movies. I think a lot of people are slacking this year. The ones who usually have a huge light show don't have any lights out. I hope some day I'll be able to do a huge lights thing in my front yard. Think Tim Taylor or National Lampoons Christmas Vacation BIG...or maybe not. LOL.

11. When you see a heavily decorated house do you think, 'oh that's lovely'? Or do you think, 'oh criminy, that looks like Christmas threw up all over their lawn'?

I usually enjoy the light shows. I do have to wonder what their electric bills look like in December though!

12. Are you counting the days to Christmas/Holidays with excited anticipation or dread?

I'm a little stressed with everything that's happening this month, but I'm very excited for Christmas, celebrating Christ's birth. I love the time we get to spend with family and I really enjoy having the week after Christmas off work.

13. When was the last time you had your photo taken with Santa? Did you sit on his lap?

I can't remember when the last time was. I'd have to go through my dad's photo books to see if they have any pics of me on Santa's lap.

14. Do you make a Christmas/Holiday list for your spouse or significant other or do you rely on them to pick your gift(s) without a clue from you?

I think I pretty much mention things from November up until Christmas. I never do a list. She's done awesome picking out gifts every year. I'm truly thankful just to have her at Christmas. I don't really need gifts from her.

15. When do you put up your tree and/or menorah/and or anything else?

My wife put up the tree about a week after Thanksgiving I think. I don't usually participate in decorating. Her and out three year old son had a great time all by themselves!

16. If tree- Real or fake?

Fake. We tried a real one at our apartment early in our marriage. It was a mess when it was time to get rid of it, so I'll just stick with fake!!

17. When do you take your tree/decorations down?

Usually after new years.

18. Do you shop the day after Christmas sales? What do you shop for?

Sometimes, we go out and shop a little. I like to see what kinds of decorations or really good deals I can come across. I'm a big time bargain hunter...just ask my wife!

19. Is your work/office having a holiday party this year? Will you attend?

Well, I think they are just doing a carry-in for someone's retirement and calling it our Christmas party at the same time. I'll be there cause I have to be at work anyway.

20. Do you have your New Year's Eve Plans set yet?

Probably hanging out with the in-laws. That's usually what we do. Crab puffs, stuffed mushrooms, and many other amazing hors doeuvres.
