19 thoughts on “DECEMBER ONE – A few of my favorite things…

  1. We don’t send out cards. We don’t decorate. We don’t go to holiday parties. December will be like any other month except it’s cold. That’s about it.

    Have a fabulous day and week, honey. Love and hugs. ♥

      Boy, that sounds like a relaxing way to usher out 2019. I might be a teensy bit jealous. I always wish for a more mellow season but in truth, I don’t mind all of the hustle n’ bustle. Christmas is my most favorite holiday and I truly do love everything about it, well, almost, there are those rude shoppers that bring out the Wayne Gretzky in me… 🙂 Love you!! ❤

  2. Every year we make a redneck theme Christmas card and mail them to friends and family. This will make year 16 or 17 (hard to remember). I also enjoy the Christmas parties, especially the one with the people in my writers group.

      That’s fantastic and that’s a loooong time! Do you post the cards on your blog??? I’d love to see them. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    I love to make lots of different cookies, but it’s not the same without all my kids here to help and enjoy. I also love to drive around and see the lights. Christmas Eve candlelight service is a highlight for me.

      I know.. It really isn’t the same without the kids hangin’ out in the kitchen helping and munching… Midnight Mass is family tradition and so beautiful… Many wonderful moments to share in December. ❤

    Mimi, I love your December list! A few of my favorite things to do in December are putting up the Christmas tree and decorations, Christmas lights, baking Christmas cookies, listening to Christmas music, donating to a local women’s shelter as well as bringing them Christmas cookies, hot chocolate in a large mug (and pretending I have a working fireplace to sit by while sipping it lol!), and if we have snow, taking pics of snow falling while inside the warm house with my hot chocolate. And if there’s snow, watching the dogs playing in the snow. 🙂

      I think I could bake Christmas cookies and listen to Christmas music all day! You will probably have a beautiful white Christmas but I doubt we will. So far we’ve got a half-inch of snow that doesn’t stick. I think the ground is still too warm. Maybe by February, we’ll have some. – I look forward to your photos. You always get such great snowy, wonderland photos. ❤

  5. My favourite December things are wrapping the gifts and seeing the decorations in the city and in people’s gardens. Once that’s done, I’d just like it all to be over already.

      I am so not a gift wrapper. My sister wrapped gifts like a pro at Nordstrom’s. I add a bunch of glittery things to cover my mistakes. 😀 – I’d like to see some snow but then I’d like it gone by February.

    So long as I don’t get so sick on Christmas that I have to spend it bundled up while watching the Doctor Who marathon on BBC America, I’ll be happy. (Last year wasn’t fun.)

      Noooooo. No sickness allowed on Christmas. Of course, you teach in a petri dish of all things germs. I’m really surprised as a teacher you’re not sick most of the year. Does it bother you when parents send their kids to school while they’re in the contagious stage of an illness? I used to keep mine home and I never went into work sick.
