A Christmas Tag!

So I was tagged this morning by Jill at It is a Christmas tag, called Hoopla.

I am suppose to list 12 Christmas things about me, and then tag other people.

So here goes,

1. I start to put up decorations the day after Thanksgiving.

2. The outside lights go up the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

3. I like to make Christmas cookies, but I don't eat many.

4. I have a huge collection of Hallmark ornaments, and I don't use them anymore. I have one

for each year starting in 1976.

5. I still use the same Christmas stocking I have had since I was born.

6. Every Christmas Eve I make Italian sausage and peppers. My family is Italian, and they

would come home from midnight mass, and have sausage and peppers. We have it for dinner

not after midnight.

7. I love watching cheesy Christmas movies.

8. When I was young, we opened one present on Christmas Eve.

9. My daughter has gotten 2 stockings ever since she was a baby. I was informed recently by

her, that even after she has children, she will still get 2 stockings. (Not too spoiled)

10. On Christmas Eve day, I deliver some kind of homemade treat to my neighbors.

11. My daughter and I compete to see who gets the most Christmas cards. (She started it)

12. I have a Christmas ball, that my daughter made when she was little. I hang it in the entry

from a chandelier. Every time she comes over, she moves it to another chandelier over the

dining table. Sometimes I don't notice for a couple of days. ( She thinks it's so funny)

I was told to try to keep this Christmas tag going, so I will tag Linda, and Clarice.

Have a great day!

What a fun Hoopla list! How can you not eat the cookies?!! That's why I don't bake as much as I used to - I'll eat them all, by myself if nobody watches me! We've used the same stockings for the last 15 years. I'd really like to get new ones that look like slippers in a red toile but "they" won't let me! It's amazing that you still have the one from when you were a kid! Your daughter is funny moving that ornament around!

Ha, I love your running christmas ball practical joke with your daughter. Wow, she really tests your powers of observation!

I enjoy opening one gift on Christmas eve myself. It just seems to set a cheerful tone.

Hope you're not still up to your elbows in glitter. :)
