Stormy Sunday Social

My original plans for the day included going to church for my youngest cousin's baptism and then celebrating with a family lunch after church. However, we're currently getting hit with our FOURTH winter storm of the week, so church was cancelled. (To those of you reading this from warmer climates, unless you're currently buried under 30-40 cm of snow and are about to be pummelled by 40 mm of freezing rain I do not want to hear about your "Snow Days" resulting from an inch of snow.)
Since my plans for the day have now become jogging pants and episodes of The Pioneer Woman I thought I'd join in this week's Sunday Social

This Weeks Questions:
1. What is your favorite holiday season tradition? 
I love the emphasis on family we have during the Christmas season. As I get older I realize that not everyone has this and I just can't imagine not celebrating Christmas with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins!
2. Do you have a certain holiday movie you watch more than others? If so what is it? 
My immediate family (Mom, Dad & Brother) don't watch many movies but the one we do sit down and watch year after year is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I'm also a big fan of Home Alone!
3. Show us your favorite decoration or pinterest decoration you wish you could have. 
I happened to come across this one on Pinterest and I want it so bad! 
4. What is your favorite holiday song?
I'm not someone who starts listening to Christmas music on November 1st, but Christmas in Kilarney is my absolute favourite Christmas song. It perfectly captures what Christmas is like aroun
5. What is your favorite holiday dessert? 
It's not technically a dessert but Candy Cane Hot Chocolate from Tim Horton's is my favourite sweet treat around this time of year! I also love gingerbread cookies though! 
6. What is on your wish list this year? 
I wrote about my dream Christmas list back here! Since then I ended up buying a camera, so I'm hoping for a case for it! 


  1. Christmas Vacation is definitely a classic! I watched it for the first time only a few years ago with my husband and I loved it!

  2. I am so very jealous of all the snow you are getting. I live in Virginia and it was 80 degrees today. It will be colder by Christmas but it was warm enough today to need AC. Mother Nature and I are going to fight soon. :)
