Let's get to Mike's answers, shall we?
Q: What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? What is your least favourite?
A: Pumpkin pie is easily the best Thanksgiving dish. There is no debate, no discussion. Also, pumpkin pie should be consumed year round, not just in the fall. If we're talking a main course, I'll go with turkey, stuffing, and gravy.
Q: What is a Thanksgiving tradition you liked growing up that you want to continue with your family? For example: Do you eat super early around 3pm or regular dinner time around 6pm? Do you watch football? Do you all go to a particular family member's house? Do you nap after the big meal?
A: In Canada our Thanksgiving is celebrated in the Fall on the second of October. There's usually not anything exciting happening like an entire day of football. We usually use the long weekend to go somewhere for a quick little weekend getaway before we have our family dinner . I much prefer your Thanksgiving. I love the entire day of football, the online Black sales, and how it's the unofficial kick off for Christmas.
Q: What are your thoughts on Black Friday shopping? Yay or nay?
A: I can't think of anything I'd hate more than in store Black shopping. We have a mailbox across the border that is right across the street from one of the busiest shopping centres in Western New York. I make it my mission to avoid going there Black weekend. No thanks. I'm all about online Black shopping though.
Q: If you had it your way, would you set up your holiday decorations (Christmas tree, Hanukkah menorah, etc.) before or after Thanksgiving?
A: If I were American, I'd avoid Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving. I'd probably want to spend Black putting up Christmas decorations and getting the house ready for Christmas.
Q: What are you most thankful for this year?
A: 2016 has been a pretty crappy year, but I'm thankful for my health, my family's health, and for being in a position where 2016 can be a crappy year because of some unfavourable sports outcomes. If that's the worst thing I've got going on in my life, I'm pretty fortunate.
The link up was originally hosted by Betsy at Heavens to Betsy and Laura at According to Laura Jean. They decided to discontinue to series so Crystal from Hall Around Texas, Elizabeth from Chasin Mason, Jamie from Cocktails and Carseats, Jessica from Secrets of a Stay at Home Mom and I thought it would be fun to take it over.
Next month's link up will go live on December 29th -- MY BIRTHDAY! So join us then with the following questions for your guy:
1. How do you spend the holidays? Any favourite traditions that you had growing up that you like to share with your family now?
2. Do you prefer to have a real tree or a fake tree?
3. How old were you when you stopped believing in Santa? Did someone ruin it for you or did you find out on your own? Do you play Santa for your kids?
4. What's your favourite Christmas movie?
5. Office holiday party - take it or leave it?
6. New Year's Eve... quiet evening at home or go out and party?
