part one of my Holiday meme I found at Pea's blog (it is so much fun!)

Holiday meme!
This being my very first meme I am sure it will be a lot of fun but the photos are not in the correct order so will just have to do my best.
(Q) What is your favourite Christmas song?
(A) I love the very old fashioned song "Once again O' Blessed times" but you know any song at christmas is just going to make me tingle all over!

(Q) Do you hang Mistletoe?

(A) O! yes I do my hubby is a good kisser lol lol lol I think I will hang a little in every room of the house this year! lol lol lol

(Q) what do you prefer giving or receiving?

(A) O! that is so easy to answer - I just love to give, I give to the neighbours, the work mates the bank manager! the family and all my friends yep!! thats me walking the street giving out gifts.

(Q)what tops your tree?

(A) We have vintage decorations so this simple but very beautiful tree topper goes right on top. to think it still is up there every year and it is older then me!

(Q) Do you open gifts on Christmas eve?

(A) No we make everyone wait as long as possible it is tradition to open our gifts in the morning and then spend the rest of the day cleaning up all that paper.

(Q) what kind of christmas decorations are on your christmas tree?

(A) I am a collector of vintage decorations so we have very old vintage pieces from our families past on our tree to remind us were we have come from and were we are going in life.

(Q) can you ice skate?

(A) no I cannot, I have never done it and there is just no frozen lakes here in Australia. I have however walked out to the middle of a frozen lake in Wisconsin when I went on holidays one year it was a great feeling being out there "I was so brave!" :o)

(Q)candy canes yuck or yummy?

(A) Yummy this question should be directed at my dear grandchildren they will also say yep! yummy nanni.

(Q) what is your favourite holiday tradition?

(A) As it is always a very hot day on Christmas day after the traditional lunch we go outside and have a game of cricket with the neighbours and we always win (because we do not play fair! :o))

I cannot get any more photos on this post so will do a second one and then a third one until all the 20 questions have been answered.

So this part one of my holidaymeme!

A big Hello to Down Unter from Germany!
Thanks a lot for visiting my garden blog! I really appreciate your comment very much, I guess I never had visitors from Australia before! So far, I've been a silent reader of your blog that I visited before several times.
Of course, you are more than welcome to return to my garden, I would be more than pleased to see you again at my little cottage... ;-))

Sounds like you have a great time over Christmas - the joy of the season is alive and well in you.

Thanks also for putting one of my very favourite songs on your blog. I'll have to leave you switched on all day ... lol
