What do the Holidays Mean to You?

What The Holidays Mean to You
For you, the holidays are a very spiritual time. You have as much holiday fun as everyone else - but you never forget what you're celebrating.
You celebrate the holidays in an over the top style. If something is cute, you'll buy it. People end up with a lot of gifts from you - and your house is like a holiday wonderland, full of decorations.
During the holidays, you feel magical. You love all of the decorations and how happy people are. You like to sit back and take it all in.
You think the holidays should be nostalgic and sweet. The holidays bring out your inner child.
Your best holiday memories are of childhood foods and traditions. You secretly still wish you believed in Santa Claus.
What Do the Holidays Mean to You?


Once I get going on these Question deal meme I can't stop! This one sound about right!! I love the Christmas programs at church and the ones the choir puts on too!!

One year when Kelly was really little like about 5 she was in a Christmas program at church and had this part where she was to open the door and say Welcome to Mary and Joseph and she wouldn't do it and peeked her little face out the little window and said Welcome in a whisper! Only problem you could not see her or hear her! My Mother was there that night and she was really old at the time and it was a very cold night and she had made the effort to go and we couldn't hear or see her!! But we always talked and laughed about it later, the time Kelly wouldn't open the door or say Welcome!!

I think she was about six years old when she was an Angel at a Christmas play. She was wearing a plaid skirt and white tights with a halo and wings! As she sang her songs in the choir she danced, lifted her skirt, and twirled it around!! We just never knew what she was going to do in a Christmas Pageant!!

Good Morning Grams,
I think you have the Meme fever. LOL. Here is what is said about me: Here is For you, the holidays are about emotional connections and bonds. You are happiest being around those you love.

You celebrate the holidays in a offbeat style. You believe the holidays are for doing whatever you feel like - and some of your "traditions" are pretty wacky.

During the holidays, you feel magical. You love all of the decorations and how happy people are. You like to sit back and take it all in.

You think the holidays should be decadent and indulgent. You never mind gaining a few holiday pounds... it's worth it!

Your best holiday memories are warm and intimate. You remember special moments more than gifts or parties. Thanks for sharing all the memories with us. I seen where yall got some Wintry Mix. It sure was a cold day here yesterday. It has finally warmed up to 37 degrees with a windchill of 32 degrees this morning. I hope Kelly made it home okay last night. It did a bit of something late yesterday afternoon here. I had looked out my front door and there were some small wet spots on my truck. Rain is moving in and suppose to rain for the next several days. Well, take care my friend and have a great Friday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Your favorite holiday memories strongly evoke your senses. You are vividly aware of all the tastes, smells, and sounds of the holidays.

Wow, that has me described right on! lol It's funny you should post a picture of Kelly as an angel from the pageant...just the other day I found pictures of my son Corey when he was an angel in their pageant:-) xoxo

Grams,

I did the Christmas meme and got a different answer than you did, but for some reason blogger wouldn't let me post. It said something was wrong with the code. Oh well, it did get me right on. Said I loved family gatherings and homemade gifts.

The photo of Kelly is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing.
Blessings,
Mary

The things the children do in the Christmas programs make them all the more special!! I too enjoy the church programs and the school programs also.
