Sunday Social

Dec 9...the holidays are quickly approaching! I'm basically done my Christmas shopping (half a gift left to buy), we put our tree up thins weekend, Christmas cards should go out tomorrow, work Christmas social on Wednesday...busy, busy but so much fun!

Sunday Social
1. Favorite Holiday Movies/TV Specials?
Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas with the Kranks

2. Do you do any volunteering during the holidays if so what? If not what would you do?
I actually work in non-profit fundraising so I don't have a lot of free time and the volunteering I do, is usually with my organization. 
In the past, I've volunteered at a soup kitchen and with Toys for Tots. Would love to do either again some day. 

3. Favorite toy received as a Child for the Holidays?
I received so many great things as a kid...'Santa' totally spoiled me! Making it hard to pick a favourite. So a random one (and def a top 3 favourite)...a toy horse. 
It was kind of like a rocking horse, but on springs so you could bounce up and down as well as rock. It was like riding a real horse. I'm sure I gave it a name, but I can't remember. I did used to ride it and say 'Hi ho Silver!'. It was a brown horse and I loved it...LOVED IT.

4. What was your must have item in high school for the Holidays?
I'm not sure I had one...I never really asked for anything. I also don't recall never getting what I wanted or something I didn't love.

5. Item you begged for the most and never got?
A real pony/horse.

6. What do you do on Christmas Eve? If you are Jewish what does your family do for Hanukkah?
I love Christmas Eve! We (parents, siblings) have dinner as a family. Visit grandparents, both sets, and go to my aunt & uncle's (mom's sister) and my other other aunt & uncle's (mom's brother). I go to a friends house and celebrate Christmas with her and her mom's family- music, food and laughs. Around 11:30 or midnight I head home where my cousins, siblings and I hang out in our basement, playing pool and having a great time, until my aunt calls looking for them.
