Alissa sent me a message saying she really wished I’d do a quiz. Well here you go Alissa!
Here we are in the last week of 2020 in the middle of a bunch of holidays. Let’s do a holiday quiz. Feel free to answer in the comments or if you’re answering on your blog please leave a link so we can all enjoy your answers.
- In my house we celebrate Christmas. It’s the same every year, I’ll call it tradition. We open gifts in the morning, eat breakfast, eat hors d’oeuvres, eat dinner, eat dessert and finally talk about how full we are. Do you celebrate a December holiday? What and how do you celebrate? Do you have traditions that you look forward to each year?
- Since most holidays involve food, see above, what do you eat? Bonus points if you share a recipe.
- From the time I was a wee one I have loved the awe that is the Christmas tree with all the gifts below it on Christmas morning. Do you exchange gifts for your holiday? What is your most memorable gift from your childhood? Do you get craft supplies among your gifts?
- New Years Eve will be different for sure this year. How do you usually spend New Years Eve? What will you be doing this year?
- Do you do anything special for New Years Day?
Here are my answers.
- Our Christmas has gotten smaller over the years. In an ordinary year we’d do Christmas Eve with the in-laws and Christmas Day at home. This year we did both at home. H joined us on the day.
- We’ve done a few different things for breakfast. There is no real tradition there. For dinner we have prime rib, mashed potatoes, squash, green beans, turnip and rolls. For dessert we had apple pie or pumpkin pie. I’m full just thinking about it.
- I got some memorable gifts as a kid. One year I got a bike and was allowed to ride it through the house (a small Cape Cod house that required I get off the bike and turn it around in the kitchen and living room) because the snow was so deep outside. another year I got an Easy Bake Oven. I think my mother regretted that one. So much mess for tiny mediocre desserts baked with a lightbulb. I do get knitting items for Christmas. I got a great skein of yarn and a gift certificate.
- Our New Years Eve has always been pretty low-key. I can remember my parents going to parties every year. That’s never been our life. We usually watch TV and don’t stay up until midnight. This year will be the same.
- Our New Years Day is pretty quiet too. Normally I use the day to get back on track. Get the house back in order, put away the Christmas decorations and maybe knit a bit.
