Merry Christmas ’05

Merry Christmas! I hope everybody has a splendid time with family, has a day of great cheer, and receives much loot. If you need a break from family or are just plain bored I have a little Christmas survey after the jump.

Favorite Christmas carol?
Currently, O Holy Night closely followed by O Come, O Come Immanuel.

Stupidest Christmas carol?
Jingle Bells. Gah, only the funny version (“. . .Batman smells, Robin layed an egg. . .”) makes it bearable.

Favorite Christmas cookie?
Fudge. Fudge is a cookie.

Open presents on Christmas Eve?
Yes, one.

Fake tree or real tree?


Ever seen a white Christmas?
Dude, I’m from Alaska.

Favorite Christmas movie?
Die Hard obviously.

Stupidest Christmas movie?
I expunged it from my memory.

Like wrapping presents?
I suck at wrapping, so no, heck no.

On a scale of 1-10, how stressful is Christmas shopping?

Is Santa Claus real?
He’s Elvis.

Best present ever received?
A baby ferret.

Worst present ever received?
Dunno, probably socks or something.

Strangest place for celebrating Christmas?
Hawaii, complete with a dinky little tree that could only support about 5 ornaments.

Best part about Christmas?
Being with family. No, I’m not joking. I guess I’m getting old . . . or growing up.

  1. Merry Christmas all

    I’ll comment on the Christmas Carol part of this survey only.

    My favorite Christmas Carol is either Carol of the Bells (and especially the version preformed with electric guitar) or We Three Kings (even though the Magi didn’t show up until a few years later…).

    My least favorite Christmas music is any secular Christmas song, I just hate all of them, but especially freaking Santa Baby. AGH! That song is the worst!

  2. ok, in response to the “is santa claus real” comment:

    my stepdad (also named steve) went golfing over the summer and ended up in a group with this guy with a long white beard and long white hair. he was really nice, and after they golfed he handed steve a business card that actually said Santa Claus on it with a north pole address.

    then this november my mom and steve bought a new house and they just moved in like 2 weeks ago. the house next door to them was decked out, i mean like extremely decked out, for christmas, with all these beautiful hand painted decorations, reindeer on the roof, etc. so one day steve is driving into his driveway and who is in the front yard setting up a big wooden nutcracker? the santa dude he golfed with!! santa looks up, smiles, says “ho ho ho” and goes back inside. WEIRD.
