#1. What’s your favorite thing about Christmas?
Spending time with family.
#2. Is Christmas your favorite holiday? Why/why not?
Yes and it is tied with Easter! Christmas is the time when we celebrate Jesus’ birth and the fact that God sent His Son for us. He didn’t have to. We certainly don’t deserve it. But He chose to anyway. I don’t think that I could ever thank God enough for what He has given to us, to humanity.
#3. What’s your favorite Christmas-related food?
Easy – peppermint bark! I have a really easy recipe and I make it just about every year.
#4. What’s your favorite thing to do during the Christmas season?
Pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
#5. In what way do you think Christmas is an important holiday?
At Christmas we remember God’s greatest gift to us and because of that we give to others. Giving to others doesn’t have to be big and extravagant. It can be simple as sending a card or helping someone with their groceries.
#6. What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?
We have some pretty unique traditions in my family and I LOVE them all!!!!!! But I think I’m gonna put here the Family Style Lord’s Supper that we do at our church (though we didn’t get to do it this year). Basically, at the time we sign up for, just our family and the pastor does the Lord’s Supper and there is a chair at the head of the table for Jesus. The room is usually dark but a light is placed at the foot Jesus’s chair so that it illuminates Jesus’ chair.
#7. What’s your favorite Christmas song/carol?
“Mary Did You Know”
#8. What’s on your Christmas wishlist?
I put on my wishlist the book Barefoot Memories by Taylor Bennett and I got it for Christmas!!! It’s the third book in Bennett’s Tradewinds series. I got the first two books back in the summer but held off reading them until I got book 3. Now that I have all of them I can’t wait to read them! 😀 If you want to learn more about this series, I’m including a link here that is straight from the author’s webpage. You might find this interesting but Taylor Bennett actually published her first novel at the age of seventeen!!!
#9. What is your favorite Christmas memory?
I don’t think I have a favorite. But I do like the time we had an indoor snowball fight. That was fun!!!!
#10. What do you like better- singing Christmas songs or wrapping gifts? XD
Hmm . . . I enjoy both but I think I’m going to choose singing! I like singing for the fun of it!😉
#11. What do you dislike about Christmas? (If anything)
Hmm . . . probably how selfish some people can get.
#12. What’s your favorite Christmas decoration?
Nativity scenes and also my mom’s mini snowmen collection.
I am tagging anyone who wants to do it. The Christmas spirit remains alive all year long. So, if you want to do this tag even though we past Christmas, I say GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, so for my questions, I’m gonna say that you can answer the questions above. They were fantabulous questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A quick note: I updated my about on the “About” page to say what book I am currently reading in if you guys are interested in knowing that.
