Ukrainians decorate their trees with an artificial spider and matching web. A spider web found on Christmas morning is believed to bring good luck.

-- Sooo, it's Christmas, for those of you that celebrate it. :)

What is your favorite gift that you've received this year?

My son got me the home Jeopardy game, and I'm SO excited to play it, so that's mine. :)

The 1986 Folgers Christmas commercial, that STILL makes me cry.

Any youtube's you want to share that make you sniffle? :)

We have a spider on our tree, made out of gold and crystal beads... with a tinsel "web." The story that came with it tells of the spiders from this family's attic that came down after they decorated the tree, and crawled all over it to look at the beautiful lights and ornaments. They were sad when they saw how dusty and spiderwebby they had made the tree, and the good fairy of christmas or something like that took pity on them and turned their webs to gold and silver, and that's where tinsel came from.

We don't use tinsel, we think its kinda silly and wasteful, but we have a little cluster with our christmas spider. =)

sniffle? Did you say sniffle? Linda looked up when she heard me sniff, so I moved over to her to show her this. Hanky-time.

It's enough to make me wish I acquired a taste for coffee, though other drinks serve as well.

My favorite gifts this year?

A video from my sister, though under-pining heart-wrenching.
Much musing from LJ friends.
Lap-stretch by cat Tina, with accompanying wrist licks.

That sounds so... goth? Nightmare Before Christmassy? My goodness... A spider and web on a Christmas tree would send my arachnophobic friends into spasms of horror!
You like Jeopardy, too? Oh I love that game!

lol! Yeah, I thought about not posting it because I know a number of my journallers are really freaked out by spiders. I figured since it was artificial it wouldn't freak anyone out.

And oh yes! It rocks. =)

Woot! Big boobs and smart computers. Always good. ;)

And I'm so frustrated with the Jeopardy game I could scream right now. I can't get the the damn thing to work and I'm like homicidal.

This definitely makes me sniffle.

I think the best present I got this year was that I'm finally spending it with my family. It's been awhile, but they're here and that's nice. :)

I got a new bonsai tree and a book on bonsai trees along with it. They're slowly becoming a hobby of mine, although it's difficult since I'm living in a college dorm and most don't like to grow indoors. I have a feeling one day I'll have a backyard littered with bonsai trees...
