The Christmas Song

1) While this song was published as "The Christmas Song," many people refer to it as "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire." Have you ever roasted chestnuts (in an open fire or in the oven)? Yes--when I lived in Ireland we had some freshly roasted chestnuts

2) Ricky Nelson sings that turkey helps make the season bright. Many of us just had turkey last month for Thanksgiving. Do you enjoy turkey all year around? Or do you consider it a seasonal dish? I enjoy turkey anytime

3) He wishes "Merry Christmas" to kids from 1 to 92. Who is the youngest person you will celebrate the holidays with? Who is the oldest? Dad is the oldest person I'll celebrate with at 85 and the youngest might be 14
4) "The Christmas Song" is a perennial favorite and gets lots of play this time of year. Is there a holiday song that you think is overplayed, and that you hope to not hear again (at least not until December 2023)? no, there is not

5) This version of the song is from The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, the sitcom that ran from 1952 to 1966. There were 435 episodes in all. Is there a series whose every episode you've seen? MASH, Cheers, Friends, Seinfeld
6) Life magazine coined the phrase "teen idol" to describe Ricky's popularity. In your younger days, did you have a crush on a teen idol? when I was in high school I was a massive fan of Sting (well, I still am, but I had tons of photos and posters of him)
7) Do you have a funny/ugly holiday sweater? yes
8) Have you received many holiday cards this year? Did you send many? I did not send any and I have received 2

9) If you were Santa, what cookie would you like kids to leave for you on Christmas Eve? a soft, warm chocolate chip cookie

I forgot about MASH. I have watched so many different series that I couldn't think of them all. And yay! Another vote for chocolate chip!

I've probably seen most, if not all of the Mash Series.

Roasted chestnuts in Ireland...what an image that paints!

I still watch MASH on the rerun channel, it humor is timeless.
