Christmas Eve Procrastination


Since I cannot get on a plane without being sleep deprived, I have delayed my packing until four hours before I need to leave for the airport. And because I don't really like packing I am watching the Food Network and doing laundry and blogging instead of packing.

Well, since Edgy hasn't blogged in a really long time, I am re-reading his blogs from last Christmas. I just re-read this one and I realized that if Christmas traditions continue he should receive a middle-of-the-night-visitor tonight. Merry Christmas Edgy!

But, after putting some more thought into the theory, and after reading Foxy J's post and Master Fob's comment, maybe the no-sleep-before-Christmas tradition has been passed to them. Sorry Fobs! But, maybe that means that the tradition will be passed to a different Almanac-linked blog next Christmas. I am on the edge of my seat to find out who will be next...

But, until then, here are my favorite Christmas Eve/Christmas Day traditions from last year's blog posts

1. All animals can talk on Christmas Eve, but it is bad luck to test this tradition.
2. Light a candle on Christmas Eve and place it in your front window, and you will have an unexpected, but happy visitor.
3. To have good health throughout the next year, eat an apple on Christmas Eve.
4. If you eat a raw egg before eating anything else on Christmas morning, you will be able to carry heavy weights.
5. Place shoes side-by-side on Christmas Eve to prevent a quarreling family.
6. A clear star-filled sky on Christmas Eve will bring good crops in the summer.
7. From cock crow to daybreak on Christmas morning wicked elves roam about the land. (Christmas Eve)
And now I probably should get around to packing...

I vote for Tolkien Boy, with Utah Democrats as a close second.

Since you and Foxy J were the last to have the sleep interuption, perhaps it is right that you should be able to choose who gets it next. Although, that means that you have a bone to pick with Edgy.

Poor Tolkien Boy. I wonder who will be waking him up.
