1. What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?
O Holy Night

2. What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own?
I have some from when we first got married (35 years)...but one thing I have is a little girl doll that my mom made...she has tatted lace on her dress that my great grandmother made. My mom found the lace in a bag and used it to trim the dress.

3. Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers?
I'm retired now, but I never used to do this except for Secret Santa.

4. Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters?
Nope. I don't have room to store things I would only wear once a year.

2. From my first Christmas (29 years) and DH's first Christmas (31 years).
3. Yes- just my team. This year it's ornaments.
4. No. Just red or white. No design.

2. I have some that were my parents' and many from when my DH and I married 36 years ago.

3. I did when I worked. I'll give a few teacher friends with whom I continue to socialize some of my homemade Italian cookies.

4. Nope. Not one!

1. Oh, Holy Night.
2. DH has glass ornaments that belonged to his grandmother and date back to the 1940's , if not earlier.
3. I buy a giftie for my grade level teachers and for my aide.
4. I have ugly vests from back in the day (the 80s) when they were "festive" and not ugly. I also have two sweatshirts from my kids with an "ugly" design, meant to be ironic. One is of Cleveland icons and the other features scenes from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

1.) What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song? Silent Night or Silver Bells. I noticed that almost everyone else said O Holy Night -that's my least favourite!
2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own? We have some from my childhood and my husband's, but I don't think there's anything older than us, so 29 years.
3.) Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers? Just homemade goodies. Last year I did treat bags for everyone with cookies and candy. I'm subbing this year so I'll leave some treats in the staff room wherever I go this week.
4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters? No sweaters, though I did buy a t-shirt yesterday to have something festive to wear next week.

1. Favorite Christmas song, I'll Be Home With Bells On sung by Dollie Parton and Kenny Rodgers ( my kids knew it was the holidays when I put that cd on)!
Also love Silent Night, which I can hardly listen to because it reminds me of my late mom who used to play it on the piano every year. I cry every time.

2.the oldest ornament I have is a glass pine cone that hung on my family tree. It is at least 70 years old.

3.the only gifts I buy are for my assistant teacher and two small gifts for parent volunteers.

4. I own one holiday shirt I wear to our class party every year.

1.) What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?
I love O Holy Night too but I also love Joy to the World and Whitney Houston's version of Do You Hear What I Hear?
2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own?
I have ornaments that belonged to my mom.

No, I have too many family members to buy for. I do give a little something to the custodial staff and the secretaries and receptionist.
4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters?
No, I don't get the point of buying something ugly on purpose.

I love O Holy Night, Carol of the Bells (loved playing that with my old handbell choir!) and O Come, O Come Emmanuel.

I have a dozen starched, thread crocheted snowflakes made by my grandmother in the '80s.

First year at this job and they draw names. We're going to lunch this week! At my old school, we gave each other cookies, etc.

I don't own a holiday sweater, ugly or pretty!

1. I also love "O Holy Night" but I also like "The Little Drummer Boy" versions by Bing Crosby/David Bowie and by Bob Seger.

2. My in laws gave us one that was theirs when they were first married so it's over 50 years old.

3. I buy for my coteacher that I work with directly. Last year I gave her room spray as we had a particularly stinky kiddo.

4. I know I have a sweater somewhere....I'll have to find it! Mostly I just wear seasonal colors and seasonal jewelry.

1.) What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?
Do You Hear What I Hear?

2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own?
One that I made when I was in Kindergarten!

3.) Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers?
Always for one of my teaching partners, usually for the other one. (Not this year as I am out til January.) Occasionally I see something too perfect for our secretary, who I adore, and will buy it for her.

4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters?
I have several sparkly sweaters. My DDs made me give up a sweater I thought was cute but they thought was ugly. It had lots of beads and they were falling off. Now that ugly sweaters are in, they regret their decision!

What Child is This?
2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own?
An angel given to me as a prize by my 5th grade teacher.
3.) Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers?
Yes. I gift my grade level colleagues, the office staff, the custodians, and the Specials teachers (not credentialed). I've always given to my P, too, but since reading here that many don't, I may not.
4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters?
Not specifically holiday. But I do like red.

1.) What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song? So, so many... Silver Bells, Tennessee Christmas (but only if Amy Grant sings it), Mary Did You Know? top the list.

2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own? My mom still has my childhood ones, so I guess my son's 1st Christmas ornament. I do have one old plastic Coca-Cola Santa that is an actual antique, but I have not owned it all that long.

3.) Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers? Yes, for my team.

4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters? I have a couple of 'ugly' ones that are ones I used to actually wear when they were in 'style'. A few newer long sleeve t-shirts because I just never know if the weather will be sweater ready by Christmas. It is supposed to be 70 degrees today, but some years we have snow. You just never know!

Oh, Holy Night

I have a set of ornaments that have been passed down for quite awhile. They are from the 1950s or earlier.

Yes. And I have no idea what to get them this year.

Nope.

1.) What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?
Silent Night
2.) What is the oldest Christmas/holiday ornament or decoration that you own?
One from our first Christmas. It's not on the tree, because it's broken. Even though it was a really cheap ornament, I can't bring myself to throw it out.
3.) Do you buy Christmas/holiday gifts for your coworkers?
When I was working, I bought for some on my team. There were three of us who exchanged gifts each year.
4.) Do you own any ugly (or pretty) holiday sweaters?
Nope. Threw them out this summer after retiring.
