Without further ado, here are the questions:
- Does it snow where you live around Christmas? (If it doesn't, you have my sincere sympathy.) How much? Any special snowy Christmas stories?
- Do you get a real tree or a fake tree?
- What is your favorite Christmas movie?
- Where in the world would you like to spend Christmas the most?
- What fictional/literary character would you most like to spend Christmas with?
- What is your favorite Christmas song?
- What is your favorite Christmas book/story (besides, ya know, the story)?
- Which do you prefer: multi-colored lights or white lights?
- What time period/decade would you most like to spend Christmas in?
- Which period drama has the best Christmas scene/episode?
This is about average snowfall where I live by the time January hits. We've had varying amounts around Christmas, but I only remember remember one Christmas with minimal-no snow. That was a sad year. :(
Real all the way! My family usually goes to a Christmas tree farm, and we've cut our own a few times, but we've also chosen pre-cut trees.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas, probably. It's really cute! Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a close second. And I don't really count Little Women as a Christmas movie. Otherwise it would be waaay ahead of the other two!
I would love to spend a Christmas season in Germany. I'd see Christmas markets of course, but also special Christmas concerts in cathedrals and snow-covered castles. I'd eat lebkuchen and sing carols in German to my heart's content! :)
The March sisters. Plus Laurie and Marmee. :) I know that means no presents and hardly even a Christmas breakfast, but it does mean warmth and joy and kindness. If I'm going to follow my own question to a T, the one character I'd spend Christmas with would be Jo.
OH MY GOODNESS THERE IS NO ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION!
There. I think that's the most all caps I've used! (Looking at you, Naomi ;) Anyway, I can't believe I wrote such an impossible question. I mean, there's hymns, instrumental, secular carols, vintage carols, beautiful German music...the list goes on and on! I may just have to do a post later on this month about some (and I mean some!) of my favorite Christmas music. :)
My mom kept one of her favorite Christmas books from when she was little and now it's a favorite of my whole family. It's called Jolly Old Santa Claus, and it's a really cute story with detailed, whimsical illustrations to match. I also like Tasha Tudor's Christmas Treasury and the Christmas scenes from Little House.
I definitely like white lights better! There's nothing wrong with colored lights, but sometimes when one has both colored lights and lots of ornaments together, it can be a bit much.
The Tasha-Tudor artwork era, aka the Victorian era in a broader sense of the world. Basically "the good old days". The late 18th century comes in close second!
Felicity: an American Girl Adventure has a gorgeous Christmas ball scene at the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg. (They didn't really film there, but still). This is followed by a beautiful, colonial Christmas dinner at the Merriman's house that gives me the warm fuzzies. :)
