I can’t remember the name, but it is something about “chestnuts roasting on an open fire”. Idk why that song is my fave, I can’t even remember the name. lol

I have a Swing Christmas Cd and there is a song about Christmas in Hawaii from the 40’s and it is my favorite but I cannot remember the name either!!

Ooh!  I can’t believe the holidays are here either, but I’m so excited!  My favorite Christmas songs are Silver Bells, The Christmas Song, and the Carol of the Bells.  I can’t ever get enough of them!

Mr. Adventure and I actually have two traditions.  On Christmas Eve we go over to FSIL’s house around 6 or so where we gorge ourselves on hors d’oeuvres.  No joke.  His family just makes tons and tons and TONS of hors d’oeuvres and that’s dinner that night.  We exchange gifts, and chat and play with the kids…all eight of them!Then, after the kids are put to bed all the adults stay up and play board games until midnight or so, snacking all the while. 

Then, on Christmas Day, Mr. Adventure and I open presents in the morning and I usually whip up some kind of rich breakfast.  We stay in our pjs all day, I usually watch A Christmas Story at least once, and I make home-made pot pie.  And I’m talking seriously home-made…I make my own crust, my own stock, all of it.  The evening usually closes with some sweet love down by the fire (well…the Christmas tree really!), and its wonderful.  The best Christmases I’ve ever had are the ones I share with Mr. Adventure.  πŸ™‚

Oh yikes!  I’m not ready for Christmas yet, still focusing on Thanksgiving ’cause Fiance and I are HOSTING it this year–a group of 20 and my first ever family event πŸ™‚

My favorite Christmas carol is Good King Wenceslas, though, and my favorite tradition is going to the local bell ringing concert at the chapel near the Grist Mill.  Can you say “New England”?  Plus I rang bells for 4 years and I don’t get to enjoy them much anymore now that I’m out of school; I would love to ring for a choir but there just aren’t many around, and they’re all full :-/

@trugem:

I’m sure it’s Nat King Cole, I like that one too, as well as White Christmas and Chris Rea – Driving home for Christmas. Love them all! πŸ˜‰

@MsJ26:I’m putting together my pot pie recipe with pictures, so I’ll be sure to post it once I do!  Its an all day process, but SO good! 

Your tradition sounds awesome!  I’ve always wanted to cut down my own tree!  We usually just go to Home Depot that Friday.  Not as Christmasy, but I live in a very urban part of San Diego so its close enough.  πŸ˜‰ 

We do wait until its dark out though, so at least it’ll be cold!  lol!

Fave song is The Little Drummer Boy. But I love all Christmas songs!!

Love the Griswald’s the best, too. Also, love THe Christmas Story!

Love cutting down a Christmas tree every year. Don’t love all the pine needles on my floor after a few weeks, though. πŸ™‚

@Jenn23:Yeah…the pine needles…not so much.  And every year, one of the damn cats pees behind the Christmas tree!  It only happens once, and I’ve never caught the culprit, but when I do….oooh!  So, Christmas = carpet cleaning in the Adventure household.

@MsJ26:That’s why we wait until its dark…so that its chilly and we can at least pretend that its winter! 

I am so jealous of all the bees that get to have white Christmases.  Wink
