Saturday 9: Happy Holidays!

























Saturday 9: Happy Holidays! (from the archives)

1. As you can see, Sam loved giving her annual wish list to Santa. Yet some children are reluctant to climb into Jolly Old St. Nick's lap. Did you enjoy the tradition or were you shy? Or did you by pass it altogether -- either because you wrote him a letter or because your family didn't celebrate Christmas?

I don't remember being afraid of Santa, but I always wrote a letter to mailed to the North Pole!!

2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there?

I always try to stay on the nice list!! :O)

Great movie choices! I have a real tree, or no tree at all. :)

I'm allergic to real trees, so have had to make do with fake ones for a long time. If you load them up with ornaments and tinsel they're not so bad.
