Holiday Tag!

(sorry guys, this made me laugh. he DOES have a tough job, you know?)

Lori at DollyCas's Thoughts tagged me in this fun Holiday Tag!
Please stop by her blog. She is a delight you all must get to know!

When do you usually know and feel that it's finally the holidays?
When the Christmas music starts on the radio.

What do you want for Christmas this year?
A vacation! A real live, feet in the sand, book on my lap vacation!
My husband and I deserve it!
If that doesn't happen, well, I guess I want an Ipod. Finally. I want to be able to sing and dance down the street while listening to the Glee Soundtracks!

Do you go all out with decorations?
NO! It takes everything in me to just get the darn tree up! My husband loves it. I just don't. I don't know why...well, yes, I do...because I am the one who has to clean it all up and put it all away before Easter rolls around. :)

What are you doing Christmas Eve?
We spend the Eve at my inlaws making lasagna, drinking wine and eating cookies. Then we watch The Christmas Story and pass out!

What are you doing Christmas Day?
We celebrate with my family with lots of goodies; Swedish meatballs, Oyster stew, Herring, ooooh...lots of good stuff!

It's Christmas time. What are you reading?
I participated in the Christmas Spirit Challenge and read one book so far. Right now I am trying to finish up Faithful Place by Tana French (SO not a Christmas read) and then I am going to move on to Deck the Halls by Mary Higgins Clark OR Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke.

Favorite movie to watch during the holidays?
Elf with Will Farrell, The Ref with Denis Leary and The Christmas Story, of course!

Favorite Christmas song?
O Holy Night sung by Linda Eder

Favorite holiday drink?
Hmm, I just drink lots of wine because I have the family back up for
taking care of the toddler.
I let it all out!

How is your Christmas shopping going?
We always keep it really simple so I'm doing okay!

If you could spend Christmas Day anywhere else, where would you spend it?
New York City!!!!!!

Any holiday traditions?
Our traditions are changing every year with our family expanding so much. We did start making Christmas cookies with my son and my mom this year. That was fun!

Favorite thing about the Holidays.
Now that I don't work retail? I enjoy the days off to relax!

I would love to tag the following three bloggers.
Share with us your holiday fun pass it on to 3 more!

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Loved reading your responses. I'm with you, I hate putting a tree up and since my husband is Jewish, I don't need to...LOL

Elf is my favourite Christmas film.
It was on TV last Sunday and that is when I could really start to feel like....
"Santa's coming!"

I enjoy Lori's blog too
