    christmas is a feeling,
    bringing good cheer.
    it reaches out to touch you
    as the holiday draws near.
    it's mistletoe and falling snow
    and candles burning bright.
    it's a baby in a manger
    on a cold winter night.
    it's noels, and chiming bells
    and presents by the tree.
    it's the spirit of giving
    in you and in me.
    for christmas is a feeling,
    feel in the air.
    it's love and joy and laughter
    of people everywhere.
    but if christmas is a feeling
    bringing such good cheer,

    i hope that focussing on family and fun, and not the gifts. silly pictures, insisting on doing the same traditions year after year.

    christmas wasn't very important after my family split up when i was a child...i want it to be important to my kids and the family i have now. it's something that was very sad about my childhood, and i used to get very depressed over. now during the holidays i look at my family and realize that i truly am blessed. i have a nice home, two wonderful kids that may not have come from my body but definitely have stolen my heart, a wonderfully kind and supportive husband. traditions are important and comforting...and i much prefer the new traditions i am creating with my family versus all the holidays i used to spend alone or as the "sympathy guest" ( the one who isn't married and doesn't have any family to speak of, but it's the holidays so you feel sorry for her and insist she join your family for the holiday. )

    2. does santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? sits them under the tree! when nick was little, santa wrapped them, though.

    3. colored or white lights on tree and/or house? color

    4. do you hang mistletoe? no.

    5. when do you put up your decorations? all things being equal, the 2nd weekend of december. this year, i'm having my cookie exchange early (tomorrow night), so i did it this past weekend.

    6. what is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? waldorf salad. it's my son's fave, too. we are cuckoo for waldorf salad, and it's the only time of year that i make it.

    7. favorite holiday memory as a child: can't think of one favorite.

    8. when and how did you learn the truth about santa?
    i do not recall. i think it was somewhere between 3rd and 4th grades, though.
    9. do you open a gift on christmas eve? yes

    10. how do you decorate your christmas tree? beautifully, of course! when my mom sold the house and downsized, she gave most of her christmas ornaments, plus i buy at least one new one each year and always buy them when we travel, etc. my tree never looks the same two years in a row. we start with the color lights, then add the ornaments, one for each branch, so that the tree is a profusion of color and shapes. heavier towards the bottom, lighter towards the top. ornaments with the most significance in terms of memories go in front of the tree. we finish it off with candy canes and icicles.

    19. what is your favorite christmas song? oh, holy night

    hot chocolate


    2. does santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?

    santa wraps!


    3. colored or white lights on tree and/or house?

    we have both, so it depends on our mood.


    4. do you hang mistletoe?

    no, the cat might try to eat it.



    5. when do you put up your decorations?

    before it gets cold here, which is below 60, which usually happens anytime now.


    6. what is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?

    turkey and all the trimmings.


    7. favorite holiday memory as a child:

    my dad taking us to the toystore so i could beg him for the mini-mg with a real motor.


    8. when and how did you learn the truth about santa?

    i woke up christmas eve and snuck out of bed. from my perch on the third stair from the top, i could see mom working on my christmas present--a real doll with hair. she was gluing a wig to a baby doll's head. i recognized the dress as part of an evening gown she'd worn.

    18. which do you prefer: giving or receiving? giving

    19. what is your favorite christmas song? o holy night, what child is this?

    20. how will you preserve christmas memories/traditions for your children and/or grandchildren? i don't know, haven't though about it. we do christmas on dec 25 now, not the 24th for my nieces. i think we should recite "twas the night before christmas" for my nieces and we recite the christmas story from the bible. it's very very important in our house to remember what christmas is about and what it's not about: it's not about spending loads of money, stressing yourself out, it's about giving to those who have nothing and being happy for what you do have.

    1. egg nog or hot chocolate? depends on my mood, i love both!

    2. does santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? when i was a kid, the presents were wrapped (in "special" old fashioned paper, of course) and by the fireplace.

    3. colored or white lights on tree and/or house? small white lights on the tree, large colored lights outside.

    4. do you hang mistletoe? no

    5. when do you put up your decorations? as soon after thanksgiving as time permits.

    6. what is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? it was my grandmother's biscuits. they were a yeasty type of roll made with lard and brushed with egg to make them shiny. after she died we found some in her freezer and actually divided them up amongst the family. no one ever managed to get the recipe out of her.

    7. favorite holiday memory as a child: when i was 7 years old and we moved into a brand new house on christmas eve right before bedtime. i was beside myself - there was no way santa would find me at the last minute!!! went to bed in a scary new room (empty of course) feeling so sad...until the next morning. there by our new fireplace was the present that i wanted: a cabbage patch kid. it was 1983 and they were impossible to find. i knew that santa had to exist for him to not only find me in my new house at the last second, but to also bring me one of those special dolls.

    8. when and how did you learn the truth about santa?
    the very next year after the above story, i overheard my mom talking to someone and she spilled the beans. she was laughing about how "at least this year he (my dad) won't have to sleep outside a toy store in the freezing cold" to get me a cabbage patch kid. apparently he did this to get dolls for both me and my best friend. i wasn't upset though - i realized that my dad was so much better than santa could ever be.

    9. do you open a gift on christmas eve? we always do christmas eve with my mom's side of the family, so yes.

    10. how do you decorate your christmas tree? white lights with silver bells and all red ball ornaments. the garland looks like sugared candy and there are a bunch of candy-like ornaments as well. and of course, lots of candy canes!

    11. snow! love it or dread it? absolutely love it - how it looks, smells, tastes, feels - everything! the only think i don't enjoy is driving in it.

    12. can you ice skate? poorly.

    13. do you remember your favorite gift? see question #7.

    14. what's the most important thing about the holidays for you? now, it's about getting the family together and realizing how lucky we are.

    15. what is your favorite holiday dessert? pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

    16. what is your favorite holiday tradition? don't really have a true tradition, isn't that sad? i mean, yeah we celebrated with certain family members on certain days, but nothing special like a certain day to decorate the tree or a unique activity. since i've had my own place with my own tree, though, i've tried to make a tradition where anyone who visits has to take a candy cane from the tree when they leave.

    17. what tops your tree? an angel.

    18. which do you prefer: giving or receiving? giving.

    19. what is your favorite christmas song? toss up between judy garland's "have yourself a merry little christmas" and "dominic the italian christmas donkey"

    20. how will you preserve christmas memories/traditions for your children and/or grandchildren? i'm going to start some traditions with my own kids, for one thing. definitely going to take lots of pictures and get some things like ornaments to pass down the family line...
