Hey!! Thanks for stopping by, looking all spank-tacular and everything!
Merry Christmas (early)!
So I'm supposed to talk about what Christmas means to me for this blog hop being put on by Queer Town Abbey and that is such a good topic. As a child Christmas was just another day. The only special thing about it for my sisters and I was that we got to got time off school and we went to church in the middle of the week if it fell on a weekday. We ate the same food we ate every other day, drank the same things, sang Whitney Houston songs at the top of our lungs (off key might I add) and throw fruits at the boys as they walked by below our house. Those were fun times - hacking fruits at boys *grins* I lived in Jamaican then.
In my teens it was all about going to the mall with my friends and buying gifts. Then we'd have a day where we exchanged them at school. Then there is the thing about the snow - Canadian Christmas is nothing to sneeze at and if you don't be careful, you may lose things due to frost bite.
Now as an adult - It's all rush rush rush and then I sleep for about a week then get up and do it all again. But now, I am older I can understand that Christmas is about family and being close to the ones you love. Christmas is about being thankful for the year that went buy, no matter how crappy it is and Christmas is about Sorrel (It's a Caribbean Alcoholic (preferably) beverage that the mothers (mostly) makes at Christmas time. Forget the eggnog. The next time you're at a Jamaican's house for the holidays? Ask for Sorrel!
But - lately, Christmas seem to be about the really corny movies we see on Lifetime or those other softie networks! So, what is your favorite Corny Christmas movie (hint you can't say A CHRISTMAS STORY lol What? It's a classic! lol)
Oh and by the way?
