Hard Habit to Break

1. Do you have any habits or rituals at this time of year?

Well, we're on the evening of our december presents event: Sinterklaas.
We cling to that old tradition a lot.

After that, we start decorating for christmas.

2. Polar bears seem to do well in the snow... How about you? Is snow just another thing you deal with when it shows up, or is it shutdown time? ...and if you're posting from a non-snowy locale, do you make trips to actually see snow? It's okay to admit it...

I love snow...a lot!!
And I always try to enjoy it as much as possible. You'll read more about that tomorrow.

This year we've had a very early winter, and today I was in the middle of a snowstorm and enjoyed it to bits even though my cheeks were painful because of the stinging snow.

We can't afford to go on wintervacation to find snow, but when it's here I'm happy.

3. Tell about a toy you remember from your childhood.

I had a doll with a plastic face and a fabric body, I made lots of houses with lego and I enjoyed building with other blocks at my gram.
Once I got a train in a shop and I loved it, but then came my nephew and my mom gave it away just like that. To me that accentuated the difference between male and female so much that I think that was the birth of the feminist in me.
He didn't even like trains... yet he got it because he was a boy.

4. If you could make one thing in the world absolutely free for everyone, what would it be?


5. Do you live close to your immediate family members? If not, how far away are they?

No, they live far away.
My real family are my children and my friends.

6. My mom ordered a turkey dinner from a local market. it was o.k., but not very good. how was your turkey (or last holiday meal) this year?

No turkey and I can't remember a last holiday meal.
I think it was OK.

7. In a one horse open sleigh: Have you ever been on a sleigh ride or a carriage ride? Do you even like horses? Or would you just rather travel by your own two feet?

Not on a large sleigh or carriage. I think I would love it!
I've never had something special with horses, so I don't know if I would like riding one.
I think I
s pity the horse too much to do so.

8. What is your favorite Christmas song? ...and sung or played by whom? You know, the one you tend to listen for on the radio or hit 'repeat' on the player...

The first noel. I don't have a favorite singer.

9. What is your least favorite Christmas song? ...and sung or played by whom? You know, the one you tend to skip on the player...

Let's say I like our own traditionals best.
