Meme Monday: A Christmas Meme

Tagged by Maddy at Whitterer on Autism. Tagged an embarrassingly long time ago. In fact, I was tagged when it wasn’t even winter! I love Brit speak, so I’m keeping the British spellings.

“When people say ‘Christmas’ you immediately think…”
The best time of the year.

“Favourite Christmas memory.”
Decorating the tree as a child, following my mother’s lead and trying to be as careful as possible (and hoping to score the right to hang the manger).

“Favourite Christmas song/carol.”
“Oh Holy Night,” sung by Nat King Cole. It brings tears to my eyes and fills my heart with joy and peace.

“Favourite Christmas movie.”
None come immediately to mind. In the recent past, I’ve adored “Love, Actually.” As a child, my favourite Christmas special was “The Little Drummer Boy.”

“Favourite Christmas character.”
I’m going to consider Baby Jesus not a character, so I’ll have to go with Santa Claus, or Father Christmas as the Brits are apt to say.

“Favourite Christmas ornament/object.”
My favorite is the manger from my childhood, which I used for my most recent Wordless Wednesday.

“Plans for this Christmas.”
It’ll be just my husband and our three kids, and I don’t mean “just” in a negative manner.

“Is Christmas your favourite holiday?”
There are no others.

My Christmas gift to everyone? A free pass on doing this meme. Merry Christmas.

Way hey! Good for you. I like the idea of you being on your best behaviour to earn the 'right' to hang the manger.

I loved your answers. Oh Holy Night never fails to bring tears to my eyes. When it is sung by the right person, it is incredibly powerful.

Merry Christmas!

I agree with you on that version of Oh Holy Night!

Thanks for the free pass!
