1. What is your favorite charity to donate to?
2. When was the last time you danced?
3. How do you show someone you care about them?
4. Do you send holiday cards?

And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!

1. St. Jude's Hospital
2. I did the silly me me dance Friday while watching the grandson. Slow danced by the woodstove with the hubs late Tuesday night while I was sick from treatment. He knows that the healing is from loving.
3. Little things....a quick note or text, pick up something I know they like, I still love to mail notes in the mail. For family I make sure I have favorite things for them without them asking. And I CALL just to say hello.
4. YES I love to do Holiday cards.

My 5th question is........What is your take on Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas??
  I find no reason why we can not be correct when we wish someone Merry Christmas, I think it is a shame that we have to correct ourselves when at work etc... to say Happy Holidays as not to offend anyone by saying Merry Christmas.


  1. Great Q & A, it's nice to get to know you a bit better! I'm a Merry Christmas kinda gal and I don't correct myself - especially at school - Everyone thinks they have to be so careful but you know what, say it like it is - It's Christmas for heavens sake - What's a Holiday tree anyway. People are buying gifts, and going through the motions, so just say it.

    Yeah, I'd say that's my biggest pet peeve - What happened to Christmas vacation or the Christmas program. Now it's called Winter break and winter programs. Ah don't get me started!

  2. Merry Christmas!! and Happy New Year!!

  3. I'm good with them all... at least someone is speaking to me :-) I also wish my Jewish friends Happy Hanukkah and my Indian friends a Joyous Eid...

  4. Merry Christmas! Christ is why we celebrate. I think it's ridiculous that they try to make us change the name. All religions have their own holidays - and all are allowed to celebrate them as they see fit in this country - why should we be any different?

  5. Ah...your answer to #2 brought a happy tear to my eye...the mental image of you and your husband dancing is just the sweetest thing ever!

    I'm a "Merry Christmas" person, though I sometimes just say, "Have a good holiday." Honestly, whichever comes out of my mouth is due more to how I happen to be feeling at the time, rather than an attempt to be politically correct...because Lord knows I couldn't care less about being politically correct!!

  6. I love saying Merry Christmas. Last time I danced was with my little boy to Christmas music earlier this month.

  7. I have an eclectic circle of friends and people around me, so I try to be respectful and greet them with the holiday they observe as well as saying "and Merry Christmas."

  8. It is Merry much more than just a holiday we celebrate in this family. I mean no offense to anyone else when I say it -- I sincerely wish them all the joy, peace and love that can be found in Christ. That's how I show I care about the world, I guess.
    Neither am I offended if someone says Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings -- I choose to believe that they also have the most sincere and good blessings behind their greeting.
    It's really that simple, isn't it?
    We do Operation Shoebox every year, plus we sponsor a child through Plan Canada.
    I danced Friday night at the hubby's office party. (no Grasshopper's were consumed - LOL.)

  9. being a person who never celebrated never bothered me to hear Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays..but I can understand why those who celebrate Christams would want it that way and those who do not want Happy Holidays.

    Hope you are feeling okay :)

    Sending extra hugs!

  10. I say Merry Christmas because that is what I'm celebrating. I have never had anyone become offended because I wished them a Merry Christmas. I've never been offended because someone wished me a Happy Hannukah. I think people make a big deal about nothing.

  11. I saw Merry Christmas. I would be tolerant of other religions so they can be of mine. Some people think up things to cause trouble, don't they!

  12. I wish people a Merry Christmas because that is the holiday we are celebrating.

  13. I agree--I don't think we should have to correct ourselves out in public either. Say "Merry Christmas" anyway--that is what we are celebrating!

  14. personally i think people make too much of a big deal about saying happy holidays... i say both. who cares.

  15. I love the way you answered these questions---and I agree--I miss writing and receiving hand-written notes. I use to spend hours writing long letters to my friends and family, and I remember it was a real treat if you got to make a long-distance phone call every once in awhile because it was so expensive back then. Now we just text or FaceTime....sigh...

  16. Dancing with your loved one is very special... I love all your answers and think you are so right with your 5th question's answer.

  17. Merry Christmas Ladies and gents I enjoyed all the feed back on my questions I am now jumping over to read the ones I missed this am!!

  18. I just wish everyone a Bah Humbug! It is equally offensive to all. Thanks for participating in the MQAM - look forward to seeing you again next week.

  19. Sending our Christmas and winter cards is very special and important to me. But I cherish the things I have that were written by hand by my grandparents and Mom.

    I say Happy Holidays with people I don't know, Merry Christmas to people I know that celebrate it. I celebrate Christmas and I'm not at all offended by either, unless a stranger corrects me for saying Happy Holidays. That's pretty much the only way I can be offended during the holidays, but correcting a happy greeting with a "do it MY way" response isn't really in the Christmas spirit anyway.
