 I've never done this before, but hey, I have some extra time and I'm way too awake for almost 2am, so why not, right? [community profile] thefridayfive

1. What is your favorite 'food' holiday?

Probably Thanksgiving? But as a Canadian, it's in October, so that was last month for me.

2. Do you prefer ham or turkey (or tofu turkey)?

TURKEY. I don't dislike ham (I know someone who literally never eats it -- not for religious reasons -- which I find really weird, but anyway) but turkey is so much better if it's done well.

3. Do you anticipate or dread seeing your relatives for the holidays?

Depends on the relatives? We usually go see my aunt on my mom's side since they live within day-trip driving distance (the others live in the Interior, or interior BC for non-BC people) and it's usually fine, though this Thanksgiving got a little... weird... and I'm sort of glad my dad wasn't there because it would have become a huge fight, I think. The relatives on my dad's side are... okay... though I feel a little weird about being around them, since they're all small-town people (not super small town, but...) and I'm, well, extremely bisexual. Although the only one who reacted to me coming out as bi on facebook (my dad's sister) was cool with it, but still.

4. When do you start listening to Christmas carols (for real, you can tell us)?

This year I started on October 31st after the last trick or treaters were gone because for some reason I am REALLY feeling the holiday spirit this year. Usually the beginning of December.

5. How are you feeling right now with regards to the upcoming holiday season?

God, I'm actually so excited. I love Christmas -- the aesthetic of it, the warm and fuzzy feelings, the choir concerts, the food, EVERYTHING. I am honestly so excited and I really wish it were closer now, but I'm glad it's not, because I have more time to enjoy it.

Great answers!

I remember how long it seemed between the Macy's Day Parade (e couldn't even mention Christmas until we'd seen Santa in the Macy's Day Parade) and Halloween.

What part of Canada? I'm half Canadian and we hail from Montreal.

Wow, that's gorgeous country. We've only visited there, but it sure was a little piece of heaven to my way of thinking!

I'm the opposite. I grew up in Vermont and hate the snow. Even as a little kid, I knew I'd live somewhere that didn't get snow and do. Of course, I'm not keen on the 115 degree days in the dead of summer, but at least we don't get cold in the winter in the Central Valley of California.

I do really miss the mountains, though.
