Thanks for playing along! It is interesting to read all the different answers that people give, and it lets us all have a little peek into your Christmas habits.

Who are you going to tag?????

I'm totally with you on the hershey kiss PB cookies, driving around looking at lights, and "Mary Did You Know!" Sounds like we have a lot in common.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

My 3-year and 1-year old love to drive around and look at Christmas lights, too. They don't seem to like Christmas song, though (perhaps because I sing them a lot when I'm driving).

"Daddy," my 3-year old would say. "Can you just tell me the Christmas story?"

Hmp.

Merry Christmas.
