Now I Want to Go Christmas Shopping…

Linking up with Mamarazzi and Queso again this week for WWTK! :)  They’re making me want to go Christmas shopping already! Darn it! 😛
1. What is your favorite Holiday.
Halloween.  Hands down.  I love the lore, ancient history, and traditions all over the world that surround it.  Plus, I’ve always been a big fan of the supernatural and who doesn’t like dressing up like something scary or crazy and having the night of your life?  LOVE! Can’t wait!

2. Do you have any fun holiday traditions?  What are they?
When I was little, my mom would always give us PJs to open on Christmas eve, so we’d have new jammies for Christmas morning.  Also, when my witchy sister Melaniegrace used to live with me, we’d always get gifts for each other on holidays like Halloween and others.  I miss those days.
3. When do you start Christmas Shopping?
Ummmm…. Well I start thinking of all my awesome ideas about now-I have so many plans for Christmas this year! :)  Actual shopping will probably be started the first week of December.
4. What is your favorite Holiday food?
My homemade Mulled Cider.  I call it my witches brew, but it works for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! P.S. I totally need to do what’s in the following picture this year with my cider! :)
5. Share a favorite childhood holiday memory.
I think one of my most memorable childhood holidays was Christmas when I was in the 8th grade.  After years of moving around my parents bought a house on some farmland down by Spanish Fork and we moved in exactly on Christmas eve.  All we had were a change of clothing, our mattresses on the floor, and the Christmas tree and presents.  I got to spend time with my honorary uncle Floyd while my parents gathered some of the things we needed, and then spent the night with my rum-induced-jolly dad and my family.  It was warm and exciting.
6.  Have you ever actually tried Fruitcake?
Yes.  Anything storebought or overly loaded with fake fruit is NASTY.  YUCK! Though I have once had homemade fruitcake that I actually liked.

Are you looking forward to the holiday season?

    It's way too early for Christmas thinking for me!

    I'm with you on Halloween, it's my favorite. I'd love to have a Halloween party this year, but I'm not sure I could pull it off!

    And mulled cider is my favorite scent! Well anything apple just tickles my fancy really.

    Is it terrible that I don't think fruitcake's all that bad? Or is it not that bad because I usually drink a few shots of tequila before I eat it? 😉
