Christmas Tag: You’re it!

Happy Christmas!  Join in this meme that I received from my blogging buddies Michelle at Radiant Brown Beauty and Andrea at So She Writes.


What’s your favorite Christmas song?

“O Come Emmanuel.”  I love the pathos and the lyrics and the swell of the music and voices at the chorus.  Rejoice!  

What’s your favorite Christmas treat?

Christmas cake, aka “black cake,” Caribbean style.  A sweet addiction.   Pray for me!  #gettheehencesatan  :-)

What’s your favorite Christmas memory?

All of my cousins walking one block over to our house to serenade us and demand drinks and cake.  Their rendition of “O Holy Night,” with the requisite falling on their knees?  Priceless.

What’s the best Christmas gift you’ve ever been given?

That’s a tough one.  Most years I got what I wanted, but my Kindle two years ago and my iPod a few before that are high on the list.

Do you make or buy keepsake ornaments for your family every year?

Not every year, but occasionally.  Haven’t done it this year.

Would you rather be one of Santa’s elves or a reindeer?

Elves.  At least I’d be inside the workshop and productive.   🙂  Flying all those miles in the cold… no thanks.

Gift wrap or gift bags?

Both.  It depends on the gift.

Do you own a Santa hat?

No.  Not a Santa hat girl.  Sorry.

Do you prefer Black Friday, or Day-After-Christmas sales?

Neither.  I hate malls and crowds.  Give me an online deal any day of the year!

Egg nog or hot chocolate?

Neither, really.  But in a squeeze I’d do the hot chocolate. 

What was your favorite childhood Christmas gift?

Cindy and Patch dolls.  They were sisters (or so I was told).  Loved them to bits!

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?

Two classmates in Grade 6 convinced me that my parents were the ones buying the gifts.  I was not easily sold on the idea.

Tag! You’re it! Answer these questions on your own blog and come back here and share the link.  Or if you don’t have a blog, just share your answers to your favorite questions above.


  1. So cool! You just reminded me that I used to LOVE the Baby Alive doll! Oh the days…..

    I hope your Christmas was relaxing. 🙂 I like how you changed the blog up a little too!

  2. I enjoyed reading your Christmas tag answers, Alison! And I am intrigued by the black cake. I want to taste some now! I’m not one for big crowds and lots of mall shopping either. But I love online shopping more than my luggage lol.
