I got a blog tag from Shim’s blog. So…here’s some Christmas favorite things. *sings the song “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music*
Favorite “snuggle-weather” books
Heheh, I like lots of books during snuggle-weather, as you have called it. Most books are nice to be read with a fuzzy blanket and snow falling outside. One of my very favorite Christmas books is a picture book called The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg. I love that story.
Favorite wintery/Christmassy snacks
Cookies. Ginger cookies are specifically Christmassy because we always set them out for Santa. Also, ice cream (when is it ever the season not to have ice cream?), specifically peppermint flavored. And we always get chocolate oranges in our stockings, which are tasty, and there are always candy canes hanging on the trees so I always end up eating lots of candy canes in the weeks after Christmas.
Oh! And clementines. Those are wintery, right? I love clementines and no bag of them ever lasts long in my house. My parents have ordered me not to eat the whole bag before. (I left them one or two.)
Favorite hot drinks
I think apple cider/wassail is my favorite Christmas hot drink, followed by hot chocolate. My family also makes this “creamer steamer” thing that tastes yummy as well.
Favorite Christmas movies
My family always watches “A Christmas Story” sometime before Christmas. I also watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” for the first time this year and I really enjoyed it, so I think that’s going to turn out to be one of my definite favorites. I used to always watch “Nora’s Christmas Gift” with my brother, so that holds good memories for me too.
Favorite holiday songs
Ahh! So many of them, I can’t list them all off. But I’ll name a few of my very favorite ones. Carol of Joy, What Child is This?, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Silent Night, O Holy Night, and so many others. I love Christmas music.
Favorite “snow-day” crafts
Hm. I don’t think I’ve done any crafts this year with snow. Actually, I don’t know if this counts as a craft, but I took the screen out of my bedroom window and climbed out of it to take pictures of the snow from my window well, because all these bushes were hanging over it covered in snow and it was really pretty. So I like taking pictures. I also like making Christmas cards and ornaments.
Do you wanna build a snowman?
Brrrrr. But yes, I would! I haven’t made a snowman in a few years and I think it would be lots of fun, especially since we do have a good amount of snow right now.
As far as tagging other people…I don’t think I have anyone to tag, and that’s probably okay, considering it’s after Christmas right now. Merry late Christmas everyone!
