8) How many Christmas parties do yo go to?
9) When do you start your Christmas shopping?

  1. Dunkie,

    All I can say is that Christmas is a completely different experience when your family lives away from home.

    Not away from home as in Provo, but far enough that you are completely on your own.

    Christmas Eve becomes something that is more private, more thoughtful, more grateful and a really wonderful experience - you still miss your family like crazy, but it's a good experience to have.

    That said, here are a few of my favorites:

    Favorite Book: Polar Express
    Favorite Tradition: Spending about a week with boxes everywhere trying to get the house together.
    Favorite Christmas Movie: Christmas Vacation ( I get choked up when Clark watches home movies.)
    Favorite Album: NKC
    Favorite Meal: Prime Rib
    How Many Parties Attended: About 6
    How Many Parties Throwing: About 5
    Start Shopping: After Thanksgiving
