What’s your least favourite part of this time of year? Don’t hold back; tell me how you really feel.
Are you like me — a master at wrapping gifts who takes pride in your excellent work — or are you like Mr. Katje — duct tape, bow, call it a day? Or do you not exchange gifts at this time of year? What gift-giving conventions exist in your family, culture, or religion?
Holiday decorations: happy shiny fun time, or unnecessary hassle? Or third option of which I’m not aware?
Do you like snow? Love it? Feel indifferent? Loathe it? Think he was a terrible president? If you do enjoy snow, what’s your favourite snowtime activity? (Sledding, snowball fights, burying bodies, curling up next to the fire inside, etc.)
What’s your perennial unfavourite Christmas carol? Which one really grinds your gears? Which song do you loathe?
What’s your favourite holiday treat? (Any winter holiday; not just Christmas.)
Do you believe in Santa? In any shape, way, or form? (As in, is he a literal person, or is he a non-corporeal being whose work is carried out by parents? Or something else?) There’s no judgement here; whatever you believe, I respect. Because I believe Santa is real, so.
So. Family. It’s awesome, right? What family traditions do you have for Christmas? (It’s ok if it’s depressing. For the longest time my family tradition was booze and Bad Santa. And it was only me. And a lot of booze. In a dark room.)
Have you ever gone caroling? Did you get tarred and feathered, or given cookies and eggnog? If you haven’t gone caroling, do you want to go?
Any interesting Christmas light stories from your family? The more electrocution/near-death experiences, the better!
