Every day this weekend I've said, "Okay, going to get crafting done" and every day this weekend I've gone out for something and somehow hours go by and when I go to bed I've gotten no crafting done. That said, I'm finally getting a few projects worked on. Getting new video games and knowing about sales is highly dangerous if you have anything to get done.
I love the Muppet Christmas Carol and the older Christmas Carol film with Alistair Sim. It's fascinating to me that the movies that feel like Christmas to me are totally different to my husband's. H'ed never heard of White Christmas and I'd never heard of The Night They Saved Christmas.
Do you have a favorite dish for the holidays? Maybe you make it, maybe Grandma makes it, what is it?
This is a hard one. We don't have a big Christmas dinner, but my mom's family always has "family christmas" beforehand. I'm just a sucker for various cheeses, stuffed mushrooms, and baked goods. We always have french toast or pancakes with bacon and scrapple on Christmas morning.
Okay, it's not a song, but I also love listening to Dylan Thomas reading his story, "A Child's Christmas in Wales". My college English professor played it on an old vinyl for us right before winter break and we all laid our heads on our desks and listened. Always makes me feel like a kid.
