Old School Blogging - Holiday Edition

Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life and Kir at The Kir Corner are co-hosting a link-up called Old School Blogging – Holiday Edition.  Old school blogging involves answering questions about yourself to help your readers and the other participants in the link-up get to know you a bit better. 


So here we go -  

1. Christmas or Hanukkah? 
Christmas.  I am not a church-going person so I tend to celebrate this day as a time to be with those who I love and show them how much I appreciate them.  The free-flowing booze at the Christmas party is a good thing too  ;) 

2. Peppermint or Chocolate? 
Chocolate baby! 

3. Favourite Christmas Carol? 
White Christmas by Bing Crosby is my absolute favourite classic.  When I’m in the mood for a laugh, I listen to Bob and Doug Mckenzie’s 12 Days of Christmas.  How Canadian of me, eh! 

4. Favourite Holiday tradition? 
Gathering together Christmas morning with my kids, their dad and their step-mom to exchange gifts and have breakfast together.  It’s a relaxed time before the start of a busy day 

5. Favourite Christmas gift ever? 
There have been a lot of gifts that I have loved but probably the one that I’ve gotten the most delicious use out of is my Crock Pot slow cooker.   

6. Magical moment in a holiday movie? 
I know that it’s not a movie but I have always loved the moment, in the original cartoon of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, when the Grinch discovers the true meaning of Christmas. 

7. Who do you want to kiss under the mistletoe (anything goes)? 
David Beckham; doesn’t he just ooze sex from every pore?!   

8. Which gift of the 12 Days of Christmas? 
I’ll take the “10 lords a leaping”.  Imagine having ten men leaping for me! 

9. What inappropriate gift would you give as a Secret Santa? 
It says a lot about me that the first thing that leapt to my mind was “booze”.  Tis the season to pop the cork on some wine  :)

10. Decorating style? 
I don’t tend to go overboard with decorating but I do love lots of twinkling lights 

11. ONE word that defines the holiday season? 

12. If Santa assures delivery, what is the first thing on your Christmas list? 
I would kill for a Kitchen-aid stand mixer! 



  1. Very fun answers. You are a party Booze is good!

  2. So glad The Grinch was converted. :) Thanks for linking up!

    1. I'm just a big kid at heart, Elaine; my other Christmas favourite is Charlie Brown's Christmas special :)

  3. I oogle stand mixers every time I go to target!

    1. It's at the top of my wish list but I never seem to have the extra few hundred dollars to fulfill that wish. The older we get the more expensive our wish lists become, it seems…… sigh

  4. I love some twinkling lights, too! My favourite part of decorating! :)

  5. 10 Lords a Leaping was my first thought too. ;) Happiness was the ONE word I chose to define my holiday season.
    Merry Christmas!
