I'm a little off my game this morning, but it's time for the Guys Behind the Blog! This month, we're asking our guys all about Christmas (of course!). Grab your guy and join in with Laura and I!
1. What's on your Christmas list this year?
Just stuff for my xbox. I asked for games that I could play online with my brother, Lucas. He never wants to play with me, but I still asked for those games. And I will lose all of them.
2. Did you believe in Santa as a child? Do you have any funny Santa stories?
No, I didn't. This past Saturday, though, we tried to drive to a place called Christmas Village, which is like 20 minutes away, but we waited in traffic for an hour and a half and a police officer was mean to me and wouldn't let me turn. But luckily we got there and found out that the place apparently never closes since it was open an hour after it was supposed to close. And then we waited in line another 20 minutes to see Uncle Santa (my uncle plays Santa there) and when we finally reached him, he looked at us and said "What time is it?" because he had been on his Santa chair for about 6 hours at that point. So we got a picture with Santa this year.
3. What is a Christmas tradition you hope to pass on someday?
We open presents with my mom's side of the family on Christmas night which is always the best part of the day. My cousins and my aunt come in from northern PA and they are hysterical, and of course everyone is in a good mood at that point because presents and junk. We all dress down in pajamas or sweats and it's really just fun and comfortable! Then each person opens a present (we don't do it all at once, because we're not animals) and we usually all go nuts when each present is opened. It's really like being part of a Christmas mob. It's pretty great.
4. Do you open presents on Christmas morning or a different time?
It's unAmerican to open presents any other time than Christmas morning.
5. What is your favorite Christmas song? Movie?
I don't really like Christmas music, so this is more like the Christmas song that bothers me least, and I'd have to say Relient K's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. My favorite classic Christmas movie is The Year Without a Santa Claus because that's the one with the Heat Miser and I like the Misers. My favorite newer Christmas movie is Elf because obviously. It's perfect.
This month's link up will be open through next Friday, so join in with us!
In January we'll be back to our regular schedule of the last Thursday of the month, and Laura and I will be announcing the January questions after the holiday!
