Seven Facts

Jenelle Leanne Schmidt tagged me with the One Lovely Blog award (thanks, Jenelle!)! Basically, I have to share seven random facts and then tag fifteen people. If you're so inclined, then please do this tag!
Because it's December, I'm going to share seven Christmasy facts about myself:

1. Last year, I made a Star Trek themed Christmas jumper.

2. My two favorite Christmas movies are Eloise at Christmastime and White Christmas.

3. Here's a Christmas confession... I am secretly very fond of the Christmas songs that everyone loves to hate. You know... Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Santa Baby, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Blue Christmas, Last Christmas (I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you gave it away...)... Here's one of my favorites:

4. One of my least favorite Christmas songs is Do You Hear What I Hear? because I hear it EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME.

5. I'm also not that fond of Josh Groban's version of O Holy Night because our local radio station plays it about ten times a day.

6. It's been four years since Michael Buble's Christmas CD first debuted, which is so hard to believe! I remember being SO excited for it to come out and listening to it on repeat that Christmas and next. It's still one of my favorites.

7. In our house, everything bought after November 1st is liable to get wrapped and put under the tree, whether it's a present or not. I just like seeing presents under the tree. It's so festive!

What are some of YOUR favorite things about Christmas?

Live long and prosper.

  1. I love your Christmassy fun facts! We don't put presents under the tree until late at night on Christmas Eve... but that could be for one of two reasons: 1) We always seem to have an irresponsible toddler on the prowl, who cannot be trusted with leaving wrapped presents where they are... especially if they are foolishly left out in the middle of the room underneath the temptingly bedecorated tree... or 2) It's fun to pretend Santa Claus is real, and that he stopped by our house in the middle of the night and left the entire pile of presents.

    Okay, maybe it's a little bit of both. :)

    My favorite things about Christmas:
    Winter weather! And Snow!!!
    Everything smells like cinnamon
    Things kind of get quiet and reflective.... I know it also gets crazy and hectic... but for me, I like the cozy, quiet, peaceful nights: sipping hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies every December evening...
    Christmas cookies. Nuff said.
    Christmas music. All of it. I don't think there are any songs I don't like. (And I also like the "annoying" songs nobody else loves... case in point: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer is one of my all time favs)
    I love giving gifts to the people I love. I don't even care if I get anything... but I love to give gifts. There's just something so fun about thinking about God sending us His Greatest Gift of all time, and trying to reflect just a tiny bit of that to others by finding them something they Really Love.... I dunno if that makes any sense at all.
