Feeling Christmassy? Want a RAK?

Post by Flasher » Fri Dec 06, 2019 11:46 am

So, are you all feeling that Christmas Vibe yet?  I was back in November (my trees were all up by November 10).  But then I caught this nasty bug and that zapped the spirit right out of me.  This morning, I'm starting to feel much more like myself.  So, let's have some fun.  Here is a list of Christmas tasks and whatnot.  Answer the questions and award yourself points accordingly.  The Cherry with the most points will get a Christmas RAK from Flasher Claus!  If there are multiple Cherries with the same high points, I will draw one name from the bunch for the RAK!  I'll let this run until Sunday night (12-8) at 9:00 PM.

1.  Give yourself ONE POINT if you've put up your Christmas Tree.  Give yourself another ONE POINT if it's real.

2.  Give yourself TWO POINTS if you've taken a family Christmas photo this year.  Give yourself another ONE POINT if your giving the pics out to family and friends.

3.  Give yourself ONE POINT if you've started your holiday baking.  If you're all done with your holiday baking, make it THREE POINTS. 

4.  Give yourself TWO POINTS if you've gone caroling already this season.  Give yourself ONE POINT if you plan to.

5.  Give yourself ONE POINT if you've started sending/giving out your Christmas cards.  If you're all finished with the sending/giving of your Christmas cards, make it THREE POINTS.

6.  Give yourself ONE POINT for every Christmas party/meeting/group activity you've attended so far this season.

7.  Give yourself ONE POINT if you've started your Christmas shopping.  If you're all done with your shopping, make it THREE POINTS.

8.  Have you bought your Christmas Turkey or Ham or Chicken or Roast Beef or whatever main dish you happen to be serving?  If you have, give yourself THREE POINTS.

9.  Have you started listening to Christmas music in either your home or car?  If so, give yourself TWO POINTS.  (Hearing Christmas music in the stores or at the mall or at a restaurant doesn't count!)

10.  If you've started wrapping your Christmas presents, give yourself ONE POINT.  If you've finished wrapping all of them, give yourself FIVE POINTS.  (All of them doesn't mean just what you have on hand -- it means you are done for the season!)

11.  If you've put Christmas decorations outside of your home, give yourself ONE POINT.  If they include lights, give yourself another ONE POINT. 

12.  Do you wish it was January?  If so, DEDUCT FIVE POINTS!
I don't know what my spirit animal is, but I'm pretty sure it has rabies.

Well, this didn't work for me.  I have done none of the items on the list and probably will not other than maybe baking with my granddaughter sometime.  We are planning on going to Florida for Christmas this year.  Seven of us are going.  Myself, my sister, my daughter, son-in-law and three grandkids (14-21).  The grandkids have everything they want or need and so last year we talked about a trip somewhere instead of gifts etc.  So Florida here we come.  My daughter has a time share and she has it already booked.  We are leaving the weekend before Christmas.  The kids want to go to WDW for the new Star Wars attraction.  Not sure of what else we will be doing other than it should be warmer than at home.  So, no decorations going up this year, no meal to prepare, no presents to really wrap other than I plan to give them $$ to spend at Disney, no caroling etc.  We have mentioned doing a white elephant gift exchange when we get there.  Each one of us buy a gift for 25-30 and then pull #'s to see who gets to pick first etc.  We might also make one of the saran wrap balls and take with us to do at the timeshare.  We did that last year and the kids loved it.  So, this will be a first for me to actually not be home on Christmas eve or Day.

With the year you've had, and all the amazing ups and downs, along with babysitting and working, I'd say you're doing great!

tank goodness for the shopping point!

Tree was supposed to be up last weekend.  First tome EVER that it didn;t get up post Thanksgiving weekend.  I am never letting my daughter go away to college - I loose all my motivation!
