Revgalblogpal Friday Five: Don't Call It a Comeback Edition

Alright, so I'm dropping by for a brief return stint as contributer. Please, hold down the applause (also please don't forget NOT to cut and paste this part)....

Parishioners pushing for carols before you digested your turkey?

Organist refusing to play Advent hymns because he/she already has them planned for Lessons & Carols?

Find yourself reading Luke and thinking of a variety of ways to tell Linus where to stick it? (Lights please.)

Then this quick and easy Friday Five is for you! And for those of you with a more positive attitude, have no fear. I am sure more sacred and reverent Friday Fives will follow.

Please tell us your least favorite/most annoying seasonal....
1) dessert/cookie/family food
2) beverage (seasonal beer, eggnog w/ way too much egg and not enough nog, etc...)
3) tradition (church, family, other)
4) decoration
5) gift (received or given)
BONUS: SONG/CD that makes you want to tell the elves where to stick it.

I know, I know.... pretty grumpy for November but why not get it out of our systems now so we are free to enjoy the rest of the festivities.

Let us know in comments if you play. And for even more visits to your blog, post a direct link in your comment using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

  18. My guess (hope) is that some of our favorite things and the blessings of this time of year will be the subject of future December FF's.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I enjoyed the chance to cleanse the emotion before I preach and preside this Sunday (first time at my field ed church!)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't usually enter full "bah humbug" mode until about mid-December, but I did play at my place.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hee hee - a funny one this week! I haven't played in AGES, but I had to take part this time. Of course, I can never manage to be completely grumpy, so I balanced each one with my most favorite, too.

    Cheers!
    Hedwyg

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    Bah Humbug

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bah Hum Bug!!! I reluctantly played here. This year I had decided to change from being the grump that I usually am on the holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  44. WOW, is this a record or what? Kudos to you, Will Smama! I can't remember whose I read and whose I haven't so far, but it's going to be lots of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  45. In case anyone reads down the list of comments this far, here are my answers.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This was actually a joint effort with Listing Straight and Songbird. LS came up with the topics, SB reminded me that I should probably be irreverent because our more regular FF's were most likely going to hit the more traditional holiday themes.

    I drank the wine and wrote it. Hey someone has to do the dirty work.

    ReplyDelete
  47. OK, all you grouchy people, you clearly need some inspiration. Come back over to my place again and Feel the Love.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Drank the wine or the kool-aid WS?

    ReplyDelete
  49. This was just too fun. I played here.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Interestingly...we do need to let it out sometimes. Great topic!

    So my un-favourites are here

    ReplyDelete
  51. Isn't interesting that so many played? WS, I think you struck a nerve. I read many of them and many of them are the same ones I have so I have nothing more to contribute except that I hate putting up a Christmas tree. It was the subject of too many fights while growing up.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I played. I'll likely get fired. Boy, I wish that I was one of those anonymous pastors. Ah well!

    Here you go.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I played here rather grumpily, if I do say so myself.

    Thanks WS for this opportunity to vent.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I wrote on this, but I didn't quite play. www.foraseason.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow, a lot of people played this one. I played here. Check out the link to the "Secret Santa Solution."
    Thanks, Will smama. This was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I can't believe I'm the only one to nominate "Santa Claus Lane." Didn't anyone else have to suffer through Hilary Duff? my five is here

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was rather laconic, but I did play.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Me Me Me, I wanted to play this one
    even if I am late.


    Bah Humbug to the tacky Christmas stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yes, I'm way behind schedule; but my Seasonal Grinching is up and done.

    Guess that makes me ready for Advent!
