Share Your World – Week of December 20, 2021

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?

    1. Perhaps it is but some of the recent renditions are pretty good. I haven’t found any modern Christmas songs I like yet. For now, I’m sticking with more of the traditional tunes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Oneta! 🙂

  1. Thanks Yinglan for Sharing Your World! Stuffing and cranberry sauce are two of the more disliked side dishes you might find at a holiday dinner! So you’re not strange for not liking either of them. 🙂 I hope you’re feeling well and all is going smoothly! Opening a prezzie on Christmas Eve is still nice if a family does that together and makes it special! I hope your week is warm and merry, and that you have the gift of peace!

    1. Thank you. It looks like I’ll have to stick to a soft foods diet at least until the New Year. So it doesn’t look like I’ll be having any stuffing nor cranberry sauce soon. Whew! 😀 I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 🙂


  2. I don’t really care that much for sweet potato pie (sorry Mom).

    My favorite Christmas song is This Christmas by Donny Hathaway (a close second is Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt — no, not Madonna’s version!!)

    The strange thing: When I was really young, I used to feel like Christmas was really on its way when I could smell the wax my father used to wax the living room floor until it was gleaming right before Christmas.
