Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #10

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Snow for Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-10-snowy-christmas/)

Have I ever had a snowing Christmas?  I lived in Saskatchewan for most of my life.  So, yes.  Big snow, big snow storms, big shoveling, big coldness.

But, we have even had snowy Christmases here.  One in particular had Kevin stuck here on Christmas Eve (I had left early to go back to Saskatchewan for Christmas, and he was following on the 24th).  They don’t have a lot of snow plows here, and really don’t know how to use the ones they have.  So, he had to wait until the 25th, but thanks to West Jet getting all their customers taken care of in spite of massive cancellations, he made it!

Here’s what it looked like out at our place that day.

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Letter to Santa. (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/09/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-9-letter-to-santa/)

Or, is it….SATAN???  Ok, I could NOT find the classic Santa/Satan sketch, but I think you will enjoy this one in its stead.

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – The Best Part of Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-8-the-best-part-of-christmas/)

So, what part of Christmas do I most look forward to?  Ok.  Let’s be honest here.  Are you expecting me to say “time with friends and family…blah blah blah?”  Ok, that’s great and all, but what I look forward to at Christmas is the stuffing.  Yes.  The stuffing.

I can hardly wait!

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Where to spend Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/07/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-7-where-to-spend-christmas/)

If I could spend Christmas anywhere in the world, where would I spend it?

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #6

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – When do you put your Christmas decorations up? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/06/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-6-deck-the-halls/)

Whenever I want to.  And they stay up as long as I can take it – not as long as Kevin wants them to stay up though!

Oh, and Elliot and Jasper LOVE to help me.

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #5

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Christmas Cards? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/05/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-5-christmas-cards/)

Do I send/receive Christmas cards?  Well, I receive them, if anyone out there still sends them.  And I have sent Christmas cards – but fewer and fewer over the years.  In fact, this year I probably won’t send any out at all.  Although I may also change my mind at the last minute and send post-Christmas cards.  Who knows?!?

Oh, when we do receive them, this is where they go!

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #4

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – It’s Beginning to Feel a lot like Christmas (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/04/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-4-its-beginning-to-feel-a-lot-like-christmas/)

Well, when I lived in Regina, it was after the first real snowfall (even if it happened in October.)

However, it doesn’t snow very often here, but this morning I had to scrap the car windshield for the first time this winter, so the answer to this question is: Today.

Time to put up the tree!

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #3

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Christmas Shopping (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-3-christmas-shopping/)

So, the questions are:

When do you start your Christmas shopping?

La la la la la la la…

Have you done it already?

See above.

If you haven’t, when do you plan to?

Hey, I still have 3 weeks man!  Don’t rush me.

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #2

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Do you buy an Advent Calendar to countdown to Christmas (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/02/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-2-advent-calendar/)

The answer to this question is: No, but we should.

There are SO many amazing advent calendars out there now.  The delicious chocolate ones, the beer ones (I always wanted a BC brewery one, but don’t do my homework early enough.  How about a wine one?  Perhaps a bit pricey, but then you’d have a great excuse for drinking a bottle a day.  I also heard that there was a scotch one…Kevin might like that one.

But for this year, the one I am really looking forward is the one below – apologies for going all political for today’s post…I just couldn’t help it!

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #1

 Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – How did you Spend Last Christmas (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/01/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-1-last-christmas/)

Every December I look for Christmas prompts, but I didn’t even have to search this year because this one just landed in my email!

Last Christmas we spent with mom and dad and Bill and Darnell eating steak and prawns and garlic mashed potatoes!  And, since Christmas Day is also mom’s birthday, add on a little birthday cake action to finish off the evening.   This is the way to spend Christmas!!
