christmas favorites!

Time for another Blog Hop with Girl Talk.



I heart Girl Talk. Please check it out if you haven't visited before!

Today we're discussing Christmas Favorites! This should be easy. I love Christmas!!

{ONE}
What is your favorite Christmas Movie?
My favorite movie has always been Miracle on 34th Street.
The original one, of course. :)

But i have heard that i've been totally deprived by missing out on 2 Christmas movies:
Elf & A Christmas Story
I have added them to my Netflix. :)

{TWO}
What is your favorite Christmas song & why?
My favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. I just love it. It's beautiful.

My favorite person to sing it is Mariah Carey...best version of the song EVER! Seriously. LOVE. IT.

{THREE}
What is your favorite ornament or Christmas decoration?
I got an ornament last year that is a gold star with sparkly red & gold balls on the inside. I just love it. I am sad i don't have a picture to share it, but i'm at work... & for some reason i have never taken a picture of it! What makes me sad is i dont' remember who gave it to me. :(

{FOUR}
What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
I love Christmas with my immediate family (plus Brad & Mike). We just have a night together, where we eat appetizers & desserts, listen to Christmas music, open gifts & perhaps watch a Christmas movie. It's just the 6 of us, and it's nice.

Other than that, i'm not sure. Most of the traditions i had growing up are over now because i'm an adult & things change, ya know? But i'm excited to start traditions with our own family.

{FIVE}
What is your favorite Christmas memory?
I remember Michelle & I sleeping in the guest bedroom at my grandma's house (because Santa came to Mississippi for us, ya know). Meemaw had the coziest four-poster beds with thick comforters & pillows. I remember us waking up & sitting on the stairs looking at the Christmas Tree, all lit up with presents underneath. I wish I had a picture of that, because it was so magical to us. We waited & waited for mom to wake up, because she wanted to watch us open our gifts. So we would just sit on the stairs looking into the family room at the Christmas Tree, whispering & giggling while we waited. :) 

Why don't you play along too? Just answer these questions in your own blog & link up here!

    O Holy Night seems to be a favorite among many!

    Ok, after you watch A Christmas Story, you are going to have to post what you thought about it. I still can't believe you've never seen it!
