The Green Christmas Meme

For this meme, you supply your own photo. This is a photo of my Christmas Pi tree ornament that another teacher gave me two years ago.

Kuanyin at The Art Of Living And Dying tagged me with The Green Christmas Meme.

What is your favorite Christmas gift?
I love homemade gifts: embroidered pillow cases, knit things, baked things. I love gifts that have become a custom like the new slippers and book the girls give me. Music is great. And of course, the greatest gift of all is having the kids here with me (and not fighting!).


What is your best memory of Christmas?
The Christmas before my father died, Andrew and Amelia were here. My father was at a nursing home that is next to the church and I wanted him to go to the Christmas Eve service (which is held at 7 PM). After the nurses dressed my father, my children helped me walk my father to church: over the sidewalk that was thickly coated with ice and up the many stairs. My father sang each hymn and Christmas carol and even held a candle at the end of the service. The kids and I then got him safely back to the nursing home. The congregation helped us too by parting as we left the meeting house, smiling knowingly at us, and giving us even more help down the stairs and over the ice. I will never forget that night. It was the very best gift my children had ever given me.

Depending upon where you live do you have a hot or cold Christmas?
Oh it's cold all right! Very, very cold.

Would you prefer to try the opposite weather at least just once?
No. Heat makes me ill and it wouldn't be right.

What do you prefer in a tree? Fake or real?
My tree has to be real.

What is your favorite carol?
Silent Night.

What is your favorite Christmas dinner?
Whatever makes the people I love happy. I am even happier if I can easily cook the things they want.

Do you wear a Santa hat at Christmas?
Oh no!

Have you ever seen Santa delivering gifts?
I have not seen him but I have heard him nearly every year.

I'm tagging:

Drew at BenSpark because he will be having his first Christmas with his upcoming baby this year!
Robyn at Kat's Cradle because I want to learn about Christmas in Australia.
Dorothy at Scrungy and Friends because I do!

Merry Christmas!
