Tag You're It

 
I was so excited to see this.  The things that I get excited by lol.  

Welcome to Tag! You’re it ~ Christmas Style!

TagChristmas



My goal is to get this to hop around all the different blogs and have everyone learn something about the blogs and people they follow ~ Christmas Style! So … pick five bloggers that you want to know more about their Christmas traditions. Tag the bloggers you picked and have them write up a post with the answers to 5 questions that you want to know about.

Lanayas ?'s ~
1. What makes Christmas such a special holiday for you and your family?
 
We get to spend it together, and we have lots of holiday fun.  The cocoa and movies, the Christmas music, the kids laying under the tree looking at the lights, doing a Christmas light drive around and for me is definitely the crafts!  I like the magical feeling of when it actually snows on Christmas so everything is all sparkly and white.  The crackling fires and holiday treats and smells. <3
 
2. Were you told the truth about Santa Claus by your parents or did you find out another way? And..do you plan on lying to your kids (if you have them or plan on having them)?
 
I had an unfortunate event happen when I was a 2nd grader, which made us all know that there was no such thing.  We didn't have to be told.  Hmm, lying no but telling half truth, yes.   We give them the hope and happiness that comes along with the whole santa idea, but that they also know that Christmas is not about santa but the birth of Jesus.  Santa doesn't come for free and all the days their dad is out working hard in every weather condition, sick or not and having to stay away all week also makes Christmas possible.  We don't ruin it for them, but make sure they understand that it is a blessing that we are able to have Christmas and every other thing we have.
 
3. Real tree or Fake tree?

FAKE!  I have a black thumb and I tell you I would hate to be the responsible party that catches the house on fire for not tending to the tree.  I like to have the tree so full of lights, that it looks like a light hoarder, so a real tree could never make it in this house. 
 
4. Do you open presents on Christmas morning, Christmas Eve or both?

A small one on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas morning. 
 
5. What is your favorite Christmas movie to watch? Favorite Christmas song to sing or listen to? ( I know…technically two questions)
 
I LOVE all the Christmas Classics like Rudolph, Jack Frost, The Year Without Santa Claus, T'was the Night, The Miser Brothers etc.  I love How the Grinch stole Christmas and A Christmas Carol (the Jim Carey ones). 
 
Christmas music....I love them ALL.  Well, this year the exception is the Mommy Kissing Santa song, because I have had to explain that a little and make it sound less naughty. 

So many songs....I will have a post with ALL the songs coming soon.
