Day 6 and half way through the series- I can't believe Christmas is so soon! Today we're joined by Caroline from Greedy Girl. Her blog makes me smile- a lot.

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
-Being with family on Christmas Eve. Cocktails and sweets and gifts by the fireplace. And fighting over what movie to watch before we all agree on "Christmas Vacation."
What is your favorite gift to give?
-I always put a ton of pressure on myself when it comes to choosing gifts. I always have such big ideas! But I wait too long and default to the same things: nice soap, soft scarves, classic books. Something that I know will be useful and appreciated.
What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year?
-Sparkles and shoes are always a surefire way to my holiday heart. 
What is your favorite Christmas carol?
-Johnny Cash's "Silent Night" or Otis Redding's "White Christmas." Beautiful songs and beautiful voices.
What is your favorite Christmas memory?
-I don't know if it's a favorite, but we had an epic snowstorm last year on Christmas Eve. It screwed up all of our travel plans and made everyone pretty grumpy but in hindsight it was actually quite amazing and I wish I had enjoyed it rather than cursed it.
What is your favorite gift you've ever received?
-I've been blessed to have always received what I've needed or wanted but the one gift that stands out most in my memory is my piano. I must've been about 8 when my family surprised me with a huge 100 year old piano. I embarrass myself to play it now, but it remains a prized possession.
