I am a hopeless Christmas fanatic. I buy Christmas gifts year round (pack them away never to be found).

I have a CLOSET stuffed with holiday decorations - a 7 foot fake tree and various huge fake wreaths.

I collect Santa Claus'. Because he gives and gives and doesn't ask for anything in return (unlike Uncle Sam!).

It's the only time of the year when most people are kind to others, even store clerks.

(there are exceptions to this rule but those people are just rude year round so they don't count)

I don't like egg nog - blech!

I like candy canes - real ones not the 'designer' flavors (who ever heard of Pina Colada Candy Canes at the North Pole? The Elves would be drunk all the time!)

I love Chex Mix - made by me.

I love the song 'Mary's Boy Child' by Boney M.

But most of all, I love the look the eyes of a child when they see a lit tree for the first time...or they see 'Santa'....or they get a gift that thrills them. In that moment, we know there is an innocence that should be cherished.

Merry Christmas.

Christopher, if I couldn't be at my parents house on Christmas, my Mom would just have everything without me.  You're lucky that your Mom  LET'S you all get together at some other time besides Christmas day.  


Sharon, my late husband and I collected Santa Clause's and Mrs. Santa Claus. They're all over the house......snoring one on bed, one's in rocking chairs, one's holding candles, sitting on a love seat snoring,  etc.......     

Paul, why aren't you writing lately? I love to read your poetry.....

ok, egg nogg...ummm no. that would be gack for me, and no brandy would be enough to mask that taste, I will take my brandy neat, thank you.  

and growing up, my folks could never wait till Christmas day, we always did it like 2 weeks early. Now that I am married, Jon does Christmas on Christmas morning, period, the end.   I am not a patient person, but I have to say, I love waiting. Anticipation is a good thing  

As far as traditions that I could do without???? Nope, none that I can think of, except that egg nogg stuff....bleck.....

Give Duncan my share of eggnog.
And while your at it? Give the fruitcake to the nearest Habitiat for Humanity. I heard they need more bricks.
Funny thread Karen!
Oh, and I'm absolutely repulsed by plastic trees and plastic tinsel.
But I confess, I love gingerbread cookies with Kahlua and milk! Sick, huh?
