Saturday 9: 'Tis the Season

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: 'Tis the Season

1. Do you enjoy receiving or giving presents more?
I think that it is about even between giving and receiving gifts, but I will tell what I hate the most, it is shopping. I do not like to fight the crowds

2. What is you favorite holiday film?
I am not a movie fan and it is hard to pick a movie. But if I had to pick a movie… I would pick "A Christmas Story" because I like the way Jean Shepard narrates the movie.

3. Have you started or finished your gift shopping?

Nope, I have not started. I plan on starting next week.

4. What does this time of year mean to you?
Bring the family all together to celebrate the holidays.

5. What is your favorite holiday song?
The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping

6. What do you love about the holiday season?
Being with the family, it nice to be all together.

7. What do you hate about the holiday season?
Being with the family, it gets to be too much after awhile being cramped up in one house.

8. Do religious ceremonies play a part in your holiday traditions? If yes, how?

9. Who will you spend the holidays with?
I will be spending Christmas at my nieces house in New Jersey with my brother, sister-in-law, my sister-in-law’s sister’s family, my nephew’s family and my other nephew and his girlfriend. A total of fourteen people (four children under 7 and three teenagers).

  2. Wow, there are a lot of us who haven't started shopping for Christmas yet. Glad I'm not the only one!!

  4. You haven't started your shopping yet?? Yikes. I am usually done by now, but this year money was scarce, so I have to finish up with next weeks paychecks.

  6. Glad to know I'm not alone in shopping... I haven't started yet, either.
