Tis the Season
Favorite Christmas Song: Christmas in Killarney by Bing Crosby. It is not well-known, but I love it.
Number of People I know that have a Christmas birhtday: 1 - my great aunt was born on Christmas.
What I'm hoping to get this year: I don't ask for a whole lot for Christmas. In my family, we always make lists of items we want my parents/siblings/grandparents to buy for us. This year I asked for a running medal hood that was custom-made and purple. I'm not sure if my mom found one/got someone to make it. I hope so. My birthday and Christmas gifts are typically combined, and I'm sure I'll get stuff, I just don't know what. It is a mystery.
What tops my Christmas trees (both in Illinois and my parents in Iowa): Angels.
Do I send out Christmas cards: I used to, but now I only send a few out to my favorite people and friends that live far away.
Do I wish I had a birthday a different time of year? No, not at all. I love my birhtday being in the middle of December. I love the whole month.
Thoughts on Snow: I love the first snow and think it is absolutely beautiful. I hate driving in it, though. I get very nervous, even after living in Minnesota for 3 years.
Ultimate gift i want but never get: I wish I could be chauffeured around everywhere. I really do not like driving, in the summer or winter. If someone offers to drive me somewhere, I'll happily agree.
Family and Christmas: No matter what place I am in in my life, I will never have Christmas away from my family. They mean too much to me, and I love seeing them. It is the only time of year I am guaranteed to see my sister, which I enjoy even though we are complete opposites.
Favorite Gift Ever Given: I am not a very good gift-giver for the holidays. As far as gift for my family are concerned, I once made a generous donation to a domestic violence shelter in honor of my parents one year for their gift. I also made my brother a scrapbook of various pictures from our childhood and adult lives which I was quite proud of. This was before my blogging days, otherwise I would have photographed it. It took a lot of time to assemble, going through a lot of old pictures.
Absolute favorite thing about Christmas: I get to spend time with my family.
