12 Days of Holidays - a little late  
Stolen from fairyniamh because I'm avoiding doing those things I ought to be doing!

Drummers Drumming: Twelve facts about my holiday life.

  1. I used to love everything about Christmas. I still enjoy it but it's not as magical as it once was. (The price you pay for "growing up" I guess!)

  2. I love to bake cookies. I haven't started yet but plan to very soon.

  3. My family always has the exact same thing to eat at Christmas as we do at Thanksgiving. It's a deeply embedded tradition. Not that I mind at all.

  4. I still believe in the spirit of Santa Claus. Just because we can't see him doesn't mean he isn't real.

  5. My favorite holiday "special" is Charlie Brown Christmas. That tree. Linus reciting the Nativity story. Everything about it.

  6. I also love How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (I don't love it just because of Max but Max rocks!)

  7. My very favorite Christmas movie is Muppets Christmas Carol. Kermit, Piggy, Michael Caine. Love all of it!!

  8. I also love White Christmas and its origin story Holiday Inn (although Holiday Inn can be some what "problematic." There are a few places I have to fast forward.)

  9. I love wearing Christmas sweaters. I was the only person who wore them at school. I guess they aren't "hip" or "cool." But I never claimed to be either of those things.

  10. This is the first year I haven't participated in KSAdvent. I feel bad about skipping it but I just didn't have it in me this year.

  11. I'm glad I live in the South, for lots of reasons. One of the reasons this time of year is that you can be almost certain you won't offend anyone if you wish them a Merry Christmas. I am all about being inclusive but if you wish me a Happy Chanukah I'm not offended. Why is wishing you a Merry Christmas so terrible?

  12. I'd like a white Christmas. The chances are slim. (See #11 - I live in the south.)
