Ah, I didn’t start out this challenge too well so far, right? I had the best of intentions to stick with Jenny’s fabulous Christmas Challenge and at least post the answer to the question of the day every day. But you know it: Life – read: the boy and university assignments – gets in the way all of the time :D.
Enough of that, though, let’s get playing the challenge. While it’s the fourth already, I still want to share yesterday’s answer with you, too.
3. When/how did you learn Santa wasn’t real?
Oh my, this must be one of the most traumatic experiences of a childhood, right ;)? Kidding.
The first time I got suspicious was when my mum disappeared “to the toilet” shortly before Santa’s arrival and didn’t return until after he’d left. When I asked my dad why Santa had mum’s voice he laughed it off. My last doubts where cleared when my older brother who’d found out earlier showed me Santa’s red coat in my grandparents’ boiler room. I wonder when my parents would have told me if it hadn’t been for my brother …
4. Favourite Christmas Song
Oooh, this one’s hard because there are too many to chose from. Can I just go with about every song on Michael Bublé’s Christmas album? Not just because he has a great voice – and it doesn’t hurt he’s cute, too – but because I think it’s a perfect selection of songs. Really, though, my favourite might change every year. Also, I have no shame in admitting that, yes, I do still enjoy listening to “Last Christmas” by Wham every so often during Christmas time.
My family’s favourite Christmas song to sing is a naughty version of the German classic “Kling, Glöckchen, klingeling” ;). Actually, we don’t even know the proper text anymore …
When did you learn the truth about Santa?
Have you been listening to Christmas music and singing along loudly – regardless of what the neighbours might think – already?
