My Glee Christmas CD arrived yesterday.  That gives Green & Gold a run for the money as my favorite this year.   Any new Christmas CDs for your collection this year?

Have you heard Dominick the Donkey?   I alternate between hating it and loving it…  We had a “spotted ass”  (donkey/burro) when I was very little, so I’ve always been fond of donkeys…  I love the image of the be-jingled donkey hauling Santa through the hills of Italy.

What different traditions/folklore do you celebrate?

    LOL, I thought it was only me who walked the fine line of love/hate of Dominick the Donkey (I type as it just ended on the radio… it’s a staple here)!

    Looks like your list is getting well checked… I hope to get some wrapping done tonight.

    No new Xmas CDs this year… got my TSO and Jessica Simpson in the car at the moment.

    Hmm- I’ve been listening to Glee Holiday on pandora and love it. I also love Garth and Gloria – not together! (I’m really enjoying Rosemary Clooney – even if she’s not Christmas).

    I don’t know Dominick the Donkey so I don’t have an opinion on that one. We got KAM’s box packed last night and it will be mailed today. Sent the only other box out yesterday. My shopping is done save for a personalized ornament that I’m hoping to get at lunch today. Wrapping tonight, and hopefully some sewing and maybe – wait for it – a blog post!! g

    Want to see the definition of “chicken with her head cut off”? Peek into my house. Food delivery arriving today. Shopping not done. Christmas cards not sent. Wrapping not done. Sewing not done, and put away until January. Lots of nots here! Oh, well. I’m only stressing over the little boys.

    When my cousin was a teenager (he’s now a father of three teens) his mom sent him to the store a few days before Christmas to pick up some extra lights for the tree and a loaf of party rye bread for the party she was hosting the next day.

    The next day she couldn’t find the bread and asked him if he had forgotten to buy it. He dragged her into the living room and pointed to the tree where he had put the extra lights and hung the loaf of bread.

    Since then, we always hang a loaf of party rye on the tree, then eat it for New Year’s lunch.

    Our tradition is our saying, It is a Season not a Day. That is because Fireman and I as a nurse, have worked many many Christmases and we have to be very flexible with celebrating. I was so happy when Al, wrote in her card to me: Remember it is a season not a day!. I knew I’d made an impression over the years! So Al and Fireman work Christmas eve, I work nighst on Christmas Day. SO that leaves us with a wonderful Christmas morning together and brunch with extended family!

  6. I really wanted to respond to the burrow comment, but I will just keep it to myself! My list is similar to yours – almost, but not quite there – but I will be by Saturday and then it’ll snow and we won’t be able to go anywhere anyhow! LOL Marry Christmas, all!

    Lunch was great! It is always a pleasure to see you!

    December birthdays!

    I haven’t heard a single Christmas carol yet this year. Trying to clear the way to leave tomorrow (joy oh joy) but I’ll begin to savor the holiday and music tomorrow. I have not heard of any of the music you have mentioned. My favorite Christmas CDs are ~ Martina McBride ~ White Christmas and Mariah Carey ~ Merry Christmas.

    Have a wonderful wonderful Christmas!

  10. Ok, now that no one else is looking, I can admit that I know not of 1) Green and Gold or 2) Dominick the Donkey. Also, cards not sent, gifts not wrapped, baking not done….and…my grade for Christmas so far? F.

    Like scrabblequeen I’ve never heard of Dominick the Donkey. Most cards are sent, baking almost finished, wrapping almost finished (see a pattern here? almost)and a few unfinished gifts. What do I do? Wrap the unfinished items and vow to finish them after Christmas. Although a few of my offspring have noticed they don’t get the finished gift until the following Christmas. Smart alecs! LOL
