This is not a tagging meme. Play along if you like, or ignore it - but if you play along, please let me know so I can go read yours at your blog! My answers are in italics.
What is your least favorite or most annoying...
1) dessert/cookie/family food
mince or pumpkin pie; peanut butter cookies, cakes, brittle - I like peanut butter on toast not in sweets; I take the Fifth on family food...
2) beverage (seasonal beer, eggnog w/too much egg and not enough nog, etc.)
tie between homemade wine and brandy slush
3) tradition (church, family, other)
"Adopt-a-family" programs, because of the inappropriate use of the word, adopt. We're not adopting the family, we're sponsoring them, or gifting them, or something else - but we're not adopting them. (Don't get me started on "adopt an animal" programs at zoos.)
tacky manger scenes with too much glitter or fiber optic stuff (see the "Cavalcade of Bad Nativities"); inflatable lawn ornaments of any kind; "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" or "Put Christ Back into Christmas" lawn signs.
5) gift (received or given or both)
coupons - not to be confused with gift cards
BONUS: What song or cd makes you want to tell the elves where to stick it? (My addition: And what song do you love to hear this season?)
Too Cutesy: "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"
Too Gawdawfully Serious: "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
But I Love: "Santa, Baby" by Eartha Kitt!
I feel better already. I'll post a "most favorite" list when we're closer to the holiday.
