Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #32



We are joining this week’s Christmas-themed Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). The kitties asked me to complete all four fill-ins again this week, as they found them to be human-oriented. My completions are in teal italics.

1. My favorite Christmas Song(s) is/are “What Child is This,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” and “Mary, Did You Know.” but I could do without hearing _____________________ever again. I didn’t finish this fill-in as I really don’t have any Christmas songs I don’t like; though, I can get tired of some by the end of the season. (I have included videos of the three songs I listed, each by a different artist, at the conclusion of this post.)

2. My most meaningful Christmas ornament/decoration is now Fiona’s Star. The other is my Christmas stocking which my grandmother knit for me when I was an infant. It has my name and the year knitted into the pattern. The second part of this fill-in was “because.” I did not complete that as I think the reasons these are meaningful are self-evident. 

As I didn’t decorate this year, I had to dig into the photo archives to find a photo of the mantel with our stockings. This photo is from 2012. My stocking is the longest one with the striped toe.

3. My favourite holiday treat is the Oreo truffles my friend makes. 

4. A holiday tradition in my house is opening a bottle or two of wine and sitting down with Tom to write our annual Christmas letter. The more wine, the more amusing the letter. That’s on our schedule for this weekend.
