Man, you’re killing me here!  So, let’s say instead of answering this particular question and opening that door (see yesterday’s Worst Christmas Gift), let’s look at pictures of our tree!

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Worst Christmas Present? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/13/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-13-worst-christmas-present/)

Ok, you really think I am going to tell you what the worst Christmas present I ever received was?  No way, man.  I am looking forward to a Christmas without pissing someone off!

Now, stand aside…I promised someone asparagus!

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Favourite Christmas Memory? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/11/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-11-favourite-christmas-memory/)

Hmmmm…that’s a hard one.  I think my first Christmas with Kevin.  We spent Christmas Eve at his parents, and he gave me a bouquet of flowers – wrapped them up and everything.  When I unwrapped them, I thought they were all dead, but his mom found some water for them, and they all fluffed up happy again.  Who wraps flowers?  Kevin!

This has nothing to do with this story, but here’s a picture of one of our Christmas trees from back in our days in Regina…

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.

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #9

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.

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #8

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!

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #7

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!
