Appetizer: What is one of your Christmas traditions?
Christmas shopping. And I can think of no better example to illustrate this than that of my brother. Every year he rolls into town about two days before Christmas. Up until this point he has completed exactly 0% of his Christmas preparations. But is he worried? Absolutely not. Because we are speedy.
He just grabs my mom and any other random family members who happen to be milling around at that moment and off they go. His personal goal is to go to one store, purchase presents for the 9 family members with whom we celebrate Christmas, and complete all of his shopping and wrapping (thank goodness for charities who raise money by wrapping gifts for crazed shoppers like us) in less time than it took him the year before. And somehow he always does.
(I decided to go along on the shopping trip last year, and because this is my blog I feel that I can TOTALLY take credit for the fact that last year, he beat his record by 50%. It now stands at under 30 minutes.)
Soup: Who is the easiest person on your list to buy presents for?
Me, of course. Which is why my husband was forced to institute the “Jenny is not allowed to buy herself anything that could possibly be a Christmas gift idea for someone else starting on November 1st” rule.
Salad: What is your favorite Christmas scent?
Pine, which we can now only enjoy in the form of a candle thanks to our cat, Tigger, AKA “Mr. Destructo”.
Main Course: If you could give a fellow blogger a Christmas gift, who would it be and what would you give them?
A new puppy for Miss Doxie.
Dessert: What’s something on your Christmas wish list this year that you need (not just want)?
I hear the words you’re saying, but they’re just not making any sense 😛
