Christmas is creeping up on you...are you ready?

I was going to put a story here about Christmas and Winter and all the warm and fuzzy feelings but then I read Expat's story about her first Christmas in the US and I laughed like a crazy person. I think my biggest gift to you all would be to tell you to read her story because I can guarantee you will laugh like a crazy person too!

For those of you who are too lazy to click on links, can I just tell you that her story comes complete with a sex-doll Mary and baby Jesus stabbed with toothpicks in a Walmart Gazebo.

...Intriguinging huh? ;)

Since everyone is posting pics up of all their decorations and their tree...I thought I'd do the same.

Here is our tree:



Normal standard run of the mill tree with normal standard run of the mill decorations. The presents don't normally start sneaking their way under it for another week or two.


Then comes my parent's yard...



Ten guesses as to what ethnicity and what religion we are. Go ahead. I'll wait...

ahahah that nativity is almost as good as ours was!
Thanks for pimping my blog out:)

And thanks for the TV idea, it's actually the best I've heard. Only, knowing myself if I did that I'd probably add depression to already neurotic behavior.
In case I'm being too subtle I'll probably get a damn tree and make Fiance dispose of it on our way to the airport.

Wow, a post that did not depend upon me to prop it up with my conversational skillz!

Our little E is growing up!

Expat: I loved your post so why not pimp you out?!?! in a good way of course.

WWW: 1) skills with a z, should never be used by anyone with a high school education and over the age of 22. 2) Shut it!

I shouldn't use "OH SNAP" either, but you enjoyed that!

WWW: who said I did? Oh...I did? Uh...I meant I loved it in a totally inapropriate and derisive way.

Your parents are Jewish aren't they!

I'm guessing that you're Tamil and that you worship the Fonz.

I know the answer!! but I'm not going to give it up. I need to post a pic of my neighbors place. They have their entire house lit up, they have moving things in their yard, blow up signs and buildings, etc, they go ALL out.

No flaming white crosses? ;)

I was going to guess Jewish but poohbomber beat me to it.

Your parent's yard is done up like a cheap Vegas showgirl. Viva Christmas!

Beautiful way to express the love of Jesus.

Felisa said...

Orthodox Jew... like my family. Fo sho.

Yeah...everyone was right on the money...Im a norweigan who grew up Tamil and watching the Fonz on Happy Days (my thumbs still have not recovered), and then when we moved to the US (Vegas actually) we figured "why not" and converted to Judaism like so much Madonna LOL

Your tree is beautiful and it's making me nervous because mine is not up yet!! ARGH!! Gotta get on that tonite!!
I love your parent's nativity scene. It's a beautiful thing when folks can express their love for their religion in techincolor.

I am so good at picking up accents.

From the looks of things, you're zoroastrian. I do love the classics.
