On the 12th day of Christmas Creation Castle gave to me
But first here’s my answer to the 12 Holiday Questions:
1. What’s your favorite Holiday song?
I love all the traditional songs, but my recent favorite has been “His Favorite Christmas Story” by Capital Lights.
2. What’s your favorite holiday memory?
Every year, I still think back to when I was a little girl and the whole family would pile into my grandparent’s station wagon and we would look at Christmas lights. I love those sweet family memories!
3. What’s your favorite holiday indulgence?
Candy canes.. well the cherry flavored ones. I’m not a huge fan of peppermint.
4. What’s your favorite holiday food?
My family doesn’t have a big traditional dinner. We always have crackers, cheese, and sausage on Christmas Eve.
5. What’s your favorite holiday craft?
I’m not a big crafter. This year my class made adorable elves and we all loved them! Definitely will be in the plans for next year.
6. What’s your favorite holiday tradition?
Spending Christmas Eve with my family opening presents. My parents and I always exchange the night before Christmas since there are no kids in the picture at the moment. Opening presents by firelight adds a bit of holiday magic to the moment.
7. What’s your favorite holiday movie?
The Grinch! I love both versions and the message it sends.
8. What do you get your class for a holiday gift?
I looked everywhere for a cheap set of books, but ended up giving them a holiday cup, candy cane straw, and a packet of hot cocoa.
9. What’s your favorite holiday thing to teach?
Christmas Around the World – it is so fun to explore different cultures with kids. We had a blast traveling through 8 countries in two weeks this year.
10. What’s your favorite holiday book?
Any Christmas book is good! I did stumble across a fun Santa coming to Texas story and Turkey Claus this year. My kids were rolling on the floor with laughter!
11. What’s your favorite holiday product?
Hard question… there are so many to choose from. I loved using Simply Kinder’s Holidays Around the World Craftivity Book this year!
12. What do you want Santa to bring you this year?
More time to sleep!

Yesterday I went up to school and started decorating my room for Christmas with some help! I am so excited to see the look on my students’ faces when they walk into our room on Monday. Here’s a sneak peek for you… although most of our decorations will be coming from student made crafts.
