    the twelve questions of christmas.
    note: i realize some of you live where there's no snow, or where it's actually summer now - so please bear with the snow questions
    additional note: i know some of you, like me, are not christian, but since xmas is so pervasive, i figured most people would have an answer for most of these; and i tried to make some non-specific to xmas.


    1) what's your favorite song for the holidays?

    2) tree: natural, plastic, or none?

    3) what's your favorite thing to watch on tv during the holidays?

    4) name something you'd like to find in your stocking.

    5) what's worse?
    a) lots of snow when it's just sort of cold
    b) little or no snow when it's absolutely frigid


    6) if you could hit anyone in the face with a snowball right now, who would it be?

    7) can the swans swim where you live right now?

    8) how often do you do donuts in the snow in your car just for fun?
    (never, once or twice in my life, at least once every season, often, every chance i get)


    9) if Jesus were alive today, do you believe he'd be confused about this whole holiday?

    10) when people ask you what you want for christmas, are you the guy who always quickly answers "world peace"?

    11) merry christmas or happy holidays?

    12) what's your least favorite song for the holidays?

    2. If I have one it has to be real.

    3. The Queen's Speech... No, seriously probably The Wizard of Oz.

    5. b

    6. You, for asking these questions I am compelled to answer

    7. Yes, nothing frozen here... YET!

    8. Never, but there's always a first time.

    1) what's your favorite song for the holidays?
    I despise any and all "holiday" music.

    2) tree: natural, plastic, or none?
    None.

    3) what's your favorite thing to watch on tv during the holidays?
    "Holiday" shows are tepid, banal productions. Still, I have always been fond of the Bankin-Rass animations for their technical merit.

    4) name something you'd like to find in your stocking.
    I don't have a stocking.

    5) what's worse?
    a) lots of snow when it's just sort of cold
    b) little or no snow when it's absolutely frigid

    Lots of snow is worse. The idiot brigades are out in full force when the roads are covered in the white stuff.

    6) if you could hit anyone in the face with a snowball right now, who would it be?
    Hitting in the face isn't nice.

    7) can the swans swim where you live right now?
    I suppose they could, but there aren't ever any swans around here at any time of the year.

    8) how often do you do donuts in the snow in your car just for fun?
    (never, once or twice in my life, at least once every season, often, every chance i get)

    Doing donuts is one of the single most idiotic things to do. I paid good money for my car and I don't see the logic in intentionally sliding my car across slick surfaces, allowing for any chance that the car will careen out of control.

    9) if Jesus were alive today, do you believe he'd be confused about this whole holiday?
    This is a lot of "ifs".
    If Jesus were real, and if he were alive today, then he would be confused.
    According to Biblical descriptions, Jesus was more likely born sometime around March or April. The idea of a "Christ Mass" in December to celebrate his birth is the invention of the Roman Catholic Church.
    They took a pagan solstice holiday which had nothing to do with Christ, the Church or the Bible.... and did their worst to mangle it into some sort of festival that resembled a Judeo-Christian observance... in a feeble effort to convince and coerce pagans into becoming Christian or at the very least, divert their attention away from their own religious festivals.

    10) when people ask you what you want for christmas, are you the guy who always quickly answers "world peace"?
    Nope.

    11) merry christmas or happy holidays?
    Have a good day.

    12) what's your least favorite song for the holidays?
    See Answer #1.

    1) what's your favorite song for the holidays?

    Have a lot of favorites, depends on the artist that sings/plays it. O Come All Ye Faithful would probably have to be my favorite classic Christmas carol, though.

    2) tree: natural, plastic, or none?

    Artificial, not sure it can necessarily be called plastic, I guess the needles are.

    3) what's your favorite thing to watch on tv during the holidays?

    A Christmas Carol, the Patrick Stewart version

    4) name something you'd like to find in your stocking.

    An iTunes gift card

    5) what's worse?
    a) lots of snow when it's just sort of cold
    b) little or no snow when it's absolutely frigid


    b) definitely...I don't mind snow, but I do mind not being able to feel my face.

    6) if you could hit anyone in the face with a snowball right now, who would it be?

    Can't really think of anyone I dislike that much.

    7) can the swans swim where you live right now?

    They probably could, nothing's frozen.

    8) how often do you do donuts in the snow in your car just for fun?
    (never, once or twice in my life, at least once every season, often, every chance i get)


    Never, we don't get snow down here.

    9) if Jesus were alive today, do you believe he'd be confused about this whole holiday?

    Probably, the secular aspects have taken on a life of their own.

    10) when people ask you what you want for christmas, are you the guy who always quickly answers "world peace"?

    No.

    11) merry christmas or happy holidays?

    Merry Christmas.
