Celebrate National Ugly Sweater Day with this quiz!

Did you know that today is National Ugly Sweater Day? I am going to make a wild guess and say that’s due to all the ugly holiday sweaters that appear this time of year! I was at the mall yesterday, and I was very amused by all the ugly Christmas sweaters people were wearing. I think they were being ironic? But still, those sweaters were U-G-L-Y!

If you’re like me and don’t have an ugly holiday sweater, you can still celebrate today with this quiz:

What Christmas cupcake best suits you?

Happy National Cupcake Day! I looked on my calendar today, and I saw that it was marked as a day for celebrating cupcakes… which I admit seems a little odd considering how many other treats are available during the holidays. That’s okay though – I’m not going to complain. The more treats the better 🙂

I decided to embrace National Cupcake day fully this year while still staying true to the season. So check out my latest quiz:

Which of Santa’s Reindeer Should You Adopt?

Do you love the story of Santa and his reindeer? I have been fascinated by Santa’s reindeer from a young age, probably because I have always been an animal lover. Growing up in Colorado, there was a kids’ amusement park called Santa’s Workshop that actually had live reindeer. I loved to visit with them in between riding all the kiddie rides.

My husband always teases me a bit about reindeer once we learned that people from Norway (like many of my relatives) eat reindeer meat and even sometimes put it in their coffee. I think I’ll pass on this cultural tradition and stick to just enjoying reindeers as sweet holiday animals. I prefer to think of them as cuddly friends and not as tasty treats.

I got the idea of adopting a reindeer in my head after re-watching one of my favorite holiday movies, Elf. While clearly the movie has nothing to do with reindeers, I was reminded at the end of how essential they are to Santa’s journey. I wouldn’t mind taking care of a couple for the remainder of the year, provided they got along with my dog 🙂 Also, while I know I’m allowed to have a small goat here in my backyard in Austin, I’ll have to check on the status of reindeer.

Are you like me and totally loving the idea of adopting a reindeer? Than take my latest quiz to see which reindeer you should adopt: Which of Santa’s Reindeer Should You Adopt? Let me know what you get as your result and how well it fits you. This quiz will tell you a lot about your holiday personality 🙂

Discussion question: Which of Santa’s reindeer is your favorite?

Friday Five – New Fun and New Contest

Cat hiding underneath Christmas tree
Time for the Holiday Friday Five!

Hello! Thanks to everyone who entered my Friday Fiver contest over the past couple weeks. While I think it was fun, I want to do something new (there will still be a contest!) more in the spirit of Blogthings.

When I originally started Blogthings, I wanted to give people a way to easily find fun things to add to their blogs and have more topics to blog about. Of course, in the era of Facebook, Twitter, and yes, still blogs, this has morphed into fun things to add to all sorts of social media / self expression services.

I felt like the Friday Fiver was sort of straying from this mission a bit, so I want to introduce something new – and kind of old. The Friday Five! If you’re a long time blogger, LiveJournaler, or internet geek like me, you may remember the tradition of posting five questions on Friday that everyone answers. I’d like to start this up on the Blogthings blog as a way for some get-to-know-each-other fun!

Without further delay, here are the Friday Five questions for this week. Simply answer below in a comment.

Friday Five – Holiday 2012

  1. What holidays, if any, are you celebrating this year?
  2. Do you celebrate out of religious reasons, cultural reasons, or familial reasons? Or a combination of the three?
  3. Do you prefer to give gifts or receive gifts?
  4. What is your favorite edible holiday treat?
  5. What do you think about gift cards as holiday gifts? Thoughtful or thoughtless?
