Revgalblogpal Friday Five: Don't Call It a Comeback Edition
Will Smama says,
Alright, so I'm dropping by for a brief return stint as contributer. Please, hold down the applause (also please don't forget NOT to cut and paste this part)....
Parishioners pushing for carols before you digested your turkey?
Organist refusing to play Advent hymns because he/she already has them planned for Lessons & Carols?
Find yourself reading Luke and thinking of a variety of ways to tell Linus where to stick it? (Lights please.)
Then this quick and easy Friday Five is for you! And for those of you with a more positive attitude, have no fear. I am sure more sacred and reverent Friday Fives will follow.
Please tell us your least favorite/most annoying seasonal....
1) dessert/cookie/family food
It's not a particular food (I even love fruit cake), but the quantity of food. Who should eat as much as we do at Christmas?
2) beverage (seasonal beer, eggnog w/ way too much egg and not enough nog, etc...)
Wassail. What is wassail any way? It might be great, but I have never had any and have never been anywhere where it was served, but we sing about wassailing. "Here we come a Wassailing...."
3) tradition (church, family, other)
I really get upset that almost everyone celebrates their brains out BEFORE Christmas and not during Christmas. Christmas is almost anti-climactic with all the parties and shopping done before. It just has always seemed backwards to me.
Blow-up Santa's. The family across the street has one there now. It appeared Thanksgiving Day and I am sure will go down the day after Christmas. Every once in a while it spontaneously deflates. :)
5) gift (received or given)
I really can't find fault with gift giving or receiving. Giving is a really nice thing to do and being able to receive is special also.
BONUS: SONG/CD that makes you want to tell the elves where to stick it.
The chipmunks, and that includes the movie that is coming out.
I know, I know.... pretty grumpy for November but why not get it out of our systems now so we are free to enjoy the rest of the festivities.
