As difficult as it may be to believe, this is Christmas Eve.
The week before Christmas, it hit 75° in Charleston. People were
walking on the beach as if it were May. This as every business in the
area reminded procrastinating shoppers that we were down to the wire in
terms of picking those gifts!
I hope you’ve finished and survived the hustle and bustle and that if
not, you can at least take a few moments to ponder some happy and
amusing Christmas memories from your past.
That’s the topic of this week’s set. Merry Christmas to you!

1. What is your favorite Christmas memory: where did you spend that Christmas and how old were you (or when was it)? Wow. One favourite Christmas memory? Can you narrow it down to one memory? I don't know if I can... Hmmm.
2. Of the Christmas decorations you put up each year, which single one means the most to you and why is it so special? Just the lights. I love them.
3. What food or drink that you only really consume during the Christmas season is your favorite and why? Hot tea, decaf, the same thing I drink all year around. I don't imbibe in alcohol (I just hate the taste) and I'm not the type to miss a drink that I love all year around except on a holiday.
4. If you could bring back any deceased relative to spend one Christmas with, who would you pick and why? My paternal grandfather. I love and miss him and need to talk a few things over with him.
5. What is the greatest single Christmas present you remember receiving and why did it mean so much to you? Oh, my... one single gift? I've loved almost every one i've gotten from my family and from my husband... Actually, there is one. Luis gave me a ring in 2001, a beautiful garnet with diamond chips on either side and white gold ring. I love it to pieces.
6. What was the worst Christmas present you ever remember receiving and what was so bad about it? Oh, my. See ANY gift from Luis' father. The man has no clue about my taste and no clue that I hate what he gives me. I'm trying to train him to buy things off of a list of items that I give him. He'd b happier if I'm happier.
If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like
