Christmas 2012 Festivities Preparation List

I couldn't think of a good title for this but what has everyone bought this year to add to their annual Christmas celebration?

I have just purchased:
Scooby Doo 13 Spooky Tales DVD, which just came out
A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Making of a Tradition book
A Christmas Carol Graphic Novel
Pink Panther: A Pink Christmas

I also got 4 strands of C-7 and mini lights lights to add to my bushes and house.

My husband has been checking out more exterior Christmas lights like he always does. As for me, nothing yet, but I am soon going to get a list together and see what I need. I got rid of some stuff last year that I have had for a long time, and would like to replace a few decorations.

I've been thinking about the tree a lot lately. I think we're going to have to go with unbreakable ornaments this year because of the cat. Last year he wreaked havoc on the tree and the ornaments. he's a bad little boy sometimes but we love him still.

Like sublimesting, I've been adding to my Christmas DVD collection: a DVD culled from Bell Telephone Hour Christmas specials; "Amahl and the Night Visitors"; and---just because I had to see how bad it is---"Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny." (Spare yourself that one. Undoubtedly the worst, lamest Christmas movie of all time.)

I have purchased a few new ornaments for the tree, we bought two candles (Yankee Candle), and have made our dinner list and all the ingredients we will need. I need to get on my desert list. This weekend we are making and setting the Fruit Cakes, de-lish. I know a lot of people think fruit cake yuck; but I adore them, I think they have a bad rap. I will also check out my lights this weekend I feel I may be needing a few new strands.

Told ya so! It makes "Santa Claus Conquer the Martians" look like "Gone with the Wind."

Well the tree I was going to use outdoors, I gave to a family that lost everything. So, 1 six foot tree and ornaments to a family of four with presents... I'm hoping they will have a happy Christmas! I'm just staging everything for the 1st of November, so I can start decorating.
