Christmas Meme:

1. What is your favorite Christmas romance to re-read each year? Bridget Jones' Diary. It begins and ends at Christams time in the book, with Mark Darcy wearing the horrible reindeer jumper.

2. What is your favorite Christmas movie/show? It used to be A Christmas Story, but I have to replace it with Love, Actually now. Touching and funny and wonderful, with Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.

3. What is your favorite Christmas cookie? Frying Pan Cookies. Even more important, is my favorite Christmas candy: Peanut Butter Balls.

4. When do you start Christmas shopping? I'm an early starter, in October, but I never finish early. I'm still out the week before trying to finish up.

5. Do you re-gift? It may have happened before. But not to you.

6. What is your favorite Christmas song? Do They Know It's Christmas? by BandAid. What can I say? I'm a child of the 80s.

7. When do you get your Christmas tree? Just the week before, as it is a real tree.

8. Wrapping presents: Love it or hate it? I love buying all the pretty paper and bows, but the actual work is usually last minute and rushed, so, no fun.

9. Who is the hardest person to buy for? My husband. He never wants much, and if he wanted anything, he would just buy it for himself anyway. All he really wants is to golf more, and that is hard to wrap up under the tree.

10. Christmas tree: Real or artificial? It's always been real, but I am not opposed to artificial at all.


  1. I love Love, Actually too. Such a romantic movie.

  2. I did this too the other day! Good luck!

  3. You made me think of non-traditional movie I love, Denis Leary in The Ref is the best!

  4. chris - Although I find the porn actors in Love, Actually hilarious, it makes it a hard movie to watch in the family room

    tink - I haven't seen The Ref, but Leary is funny.

  5. Do you, perchance, have a little thing for Colin Firth? (I never go the attraction until I saw him in "The Importance of Being Earnest", but he is rather sweet in Love Actually.)

    It had never occurred to me someone could find the porn actors in Love Actually... offensive. Or unsuitable for kids. There are two storylines I find uncomfortable: the one where Kris Marshall - I can't remember his character's name - goes to America and finds the girls actually live up to his fevered imaginings. Eurgh!

    And the one with Laura Dern, which I just find unbearably sad. Far too much like life. (I am incapable of watching a film without bringing myself to it).

    I like it overall, though, and I wasn't expecting to...
