A Christmas Meme
Margaret tagged me for this meme:
What is your most enduring Christmas memory?
Christmas Eve church service when the only light came from candles, and we sang Silent Night on our knees.
Do you have a favourite piece of Christmas music?
In The Bleak Midwinter, and The Sussex Mummer's Carol.
Do you stick to the old family traditions?
Pretty much so. I write Christmas cards as my mother did, with newsy notes inside. I use the big Christmas tree lights of my childhood. Some of the tree decorations date from when I was a child. On Christmas morning, we open stockings, eat breakfast, and open presents in that order.
What makes your mouth water at Christmas time?
Christmas cookies made with my mother's recipe.
How soon do you put the Christmas tree up and when do you take it down?
It is usually put up about two weeks before Christmas Day, and taken down December 30 or 31.
I have tagged the men on my bloglist, and the newest additions:
John, John, Rick, Simon, Becca & Bella, Bonnie, Colleen, and Dolce Bellezza.
