Christmas Traditions

I am wondering what Christmas Traditions are unique to your family? Care to share? One I tried to start several times but sometimes get distracted is to watch a different Christmas movie every night from December 1 to Christmas Eve. So I am going to try it again this year. Here is my list. I will cross them off as I go. They are in no particular order but I DO love Elf. Love it.

  1. Elf
  2. Christmas with the Kranks
  3. Christmas Shoes
  4. White Christmas
  5. The Santa Clause
  6. Christmas Vacation
  7. Holiday Inn
  8. Home Alone
  9. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  10. A Christmas Story
  11. Its a Wonderful Life
  12. Deck the Halls
  13. Home for the Holidays
  14. Miracle on 34th Street (old)
  15. Miracle on 34th Street (new)
  16. Nightmare Before Christmas
  17. Prancer
  18. The Year without Santa Claus
  19. A Christmas Carol
  20. Love Actually
  21. The Holiday
  22. Noel
  23. Surviving Christmas
  24. A Charlie Brown Christmas

Now one of my favorite quotes from Elf: “We elves like to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup.


Retro Cookbook Finds!

I told you a few posts back I would share my latest retro cookbook/magazine finds with you. Here they are! Now tell me WHY do people who obviously know they are collectibles put those dang white stickers on the covers????? GRRRR.


I LOVE this image…Dad (or grandpa maybe!) is grilling…inside…in a suit!!!!


How cute is that??? Now Husband has grilled in work clothes, swim trunks, insulated coveralls (too cold for grilling but it sure was good!), pajamas…but never a suit!

I am not ignoring the tags! I will get to them…maybe later today. Got a full plate today…been under the weather now for what seems like a very long time…I hate colds! So I am up and running again. I think I need to be 24 hours without Nyquil before I attempt them!

Oh I and the little retro cookbooks have some pretty interesting things in them…I will get them posted as well.

So its how long till Christmas???? 25 days??? Are you kidding? Nope…25 days! Right now I am listening to Christmas with Dino. I have always LOVED Dean Martin. Grew up listening to him, watching his TV program. I felt like an uncle died when he passed.
