Oh gods, aren’t you glad that’s over? Man. That was a long session of posts. Ok. Free choice today! Write about whatever you want! Doesn’t have to be holiday-related, even. Go forth and comment! Comments close on all posts tomorrow. Maybe at midnight; maybe later. I’m not sure what time I’ll be up and online. Winners announced tomorrow! (By the… Read more »
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?
Relevant to my post about not being able to do math. (The Ogre, by the way, is my boyfriend/partner/engaged-to-be-engaged-almost-someday-fiancé. We eat muffins and watch 90s movies together.) Me: I’m terrified about starting school on Monday. What if I suck? Him: You won’t suck. Me: But I’m taking Economics. I’m terrible at numbers and math and money things. How am… Read more »
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.)

Even after I counted four times before doing the first post. Even though I knew that January 6th was Epiphany and therefore the last day of the… Read more »
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?
