Tagged! Christmas Meme - updated*

Names tagged me with a cool Christmas meme he created himself. After you read mine (ladies first!) go check out his interesting answers.

When people say Christmas you immediately think ...

Lights, giving presents, fuzzy sweaters, spending time with family. Christmas used to bring a bit of anxiety, but then I started purchasing all presents before the month of December. Now I really enjoy the season and just roll around in the beautiful color, yummy smells, and tons of cracking up that I know will come Christmas eve with my family.

Favorite Christmas memory

I already mentioned my favorite memory on a previous post, but I'll just elaborate: me and my two younger siblings waking each other up at the crack of dawn to sneak into my parents room to wake them so we could see what Santa brought. We'd crawl in real quiet, hiding under the sides of my parents' waterbed and would simultaneously jump in, all three of us busting out laughing. What a sight it was when we were too old for the tradition - three teenage children throwing their bodies onto the waterbed with two adults already occupying it, the water slinging our weight around, my daddy waking up yelling "You're going to make me SICK!", my mother giggling and telling our father not to fuss, its Christmas for chrissakes! I love, love, LOVE that memory.

Favorite Christmas Song/Carol

Silent Night or Drummer Boy. I love when Christmas music is playing around my sister and I, we always pretend to have the prettiest voices, singing at the highest volume possible before turning my brother into the grinch.

Favorite Christmas movie

I haven't watched a Christmas movie in ages, probably because they were crammed down our throats as children. The children's channels all played non-stop themed movies during the season, so at our age it wasn't like we could just switch the channel over to HBO or something.

Favorite Christmas character

Santa of course!

Favorite Christmas ornament/object

The Saints santa hat Babers picked up our first Christmas.

Plans for this Christmas

I'll have my annual crazy party the Saturday before Christmas. Christmas Eve is also J's mom's birthday, so lunch with her and dinner with my family that evening for our present exchange. Christmas Day is still up in the air for us, but most likely J and I will be stretched out between the two families.

Is Christmas your favorite holiday?

It hasn't always been, but now that I have someone new to spoil rotten at Christmas and snuggle in front of the fireplace with, hell yeah its my favorite now!

I forgot to tag some peeps for this one, so here goes:

Kelly at Cheaper than a Happy Meal - Don't deny it, you love memes! Yes you do, oh yes you do -- *cough*
Christie at Come on, Fall with Me
Kitty at Kitty's Bloggy Bits
Ari at Overthunk

I also want to tag Fatwonkkid and Papa, but I'm not sure if they are meme kinda guys. So if you two are, go for it! And of course, anyone else I didn't tag should run with it too! *muah*

My fave Christmas movie has to be Badder Santa with ol' Billy Bob Thorton. Thats going to be a classic and we're going to play it for our kids every Christmas.

I love your Christmas memory with your siblings and parents. One day, you'll be making a few of your own with your own little ones.
It happens before you know it!

You definitely have some good memories Jillie, that's very cool. Christmas is a close second to Halloween for me, it's the best.

Hi RM. I'm off to read your last few posts.

Great memory of you, the sibs and the waterbed.

I'm going to consider this meme you tagged me with. But I'm so, so lazy.

I'd bet that V-Day is your close second favorite holiday right?
