Romance Ramblings: Special Guest - Deb Marlowe

This week, Jerrica and I were very lucky to have Deb Marlowe as a special guest on Romance Ramblings! We played a holiday version of Deb's "Either Or" game; Christmas cat sweaters; and talk the #TwitterShowdown grudge match competition between Jerrica, Ava, Andris and Jane.
Now it's your turn... Tell us about your Christmas tree (if you do one). Real or Fake? Colored Lights or White Lights? Angel or Star?

  1. That's right! We are colluding! We're the colludingest colluders that ever colluded! Ahem. Thank you.

  2. Our tradition is to cut down a live tree! I used to do it with my family and then when I got married...it's more about the whole all-around experience. We tailgate, drink hot cider, and then when we are gorged on food...we trek up the mountain. When I lived just outside of of Charlotte I so missed the tradition. We only had lots where we would by trees...the mountains were too far away with our little one. My husband will be trekking alone with my son as I'm confined to a couch for the holiday season!

    1. Great tradition, Christi! Do you trust your hubby and son to pick out a good tree in your absence?

      And what about the rest. Colored lights/white lights? Angel, start? Fruit cake/Eggnog?

    2. That sounds like so much fun, Christi! Next year will be better--chaotic and fun!

  4. Our tradition is to wait and put up our Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. It wasn't suppose to be that way and we always get our tree early enough to put it up sooner but the problem is my husband can never find the tree stand must less the ornamens in our attic! Organization isn't one of his attributes so every year I wait and wait some more until he's finally able to find them at the last minute! The other thing we do is the youngest person who is in the house gets to put the star on the top of the tree. I must admit this has resulted in the tree almost tipping over several times but it's one thing that helps bring us back to the "meaning of the season" being family together - through the good and the bad times!

    1. I've always wondered about putting a tree up on Christmas Eve. When do you take it down, Jeanne?

    2. My Grandparents always argued about this, Jeanne! My grandmother believed the tree should go up Christmas Eve night, as if Santa brought the whole shebang, and the kids would wake up to a new tree and decorations and presents. My Grandpa is the opposite and loves putting the tree up as soon as he can! She won for a few years, when my mom and her siblings were small, but I think even she must have been exhausted on those Christmas Days--and then my Grandpa started getting his way!
