What is your least favorite holiday side dish? (for any holiday)
I have two least favorite holiday side dishes and both have to do with Thanksgiving – turkey stuffing and cranberry sauce. I tried it both ways – stuffing inside the turkey and cooked separately from the turkey – it still tastes like mush to me. I guess cranberry sauce just doesn’t make sense as a side dish.
What is the ugliest or most tasteless decoration you’ve ever seen?
I can’t say. I haven’t seen it yet.
What is a cherished or unusual (either or both) family tradition from your childhood? (this is the recycled Evil Squirrel question that got bungled by moi, and sounded like a packaging question. My bad).
By childhood, I am assuming any age before 16 but it doesn’t really matter, there were no family tradition for me to think of. Although, my step-dad’s family has the tradition of allowing each person to open a present on Christmas eve felt pretty special to me despite this being a fairly common tradition.
You’re walking down the street, feeling great — what holiday song would be playing in the background? (aw, play along. I realize some of you prefer a very silent night. It is an option to pass on this question too. No offense will be taken).
I would say something fast, upbeat, and modern. Nothing from the oldies, nope, I need something that makes me smile. Maybe something like Jingle Bell Rock?
