Friendly Fill-Ins Week 288

Hi everyone! Time for the fill-ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you. The link is open until Wednesday night.

1. My favorite holiday film is ______________________________________.

2. My favorite Christmas song is  ____________________.
3. If you ask me, ’tis the season for _________.
4. _________ is a holiday memory I’ll never forget.
My answers:
1.  My favorite holiday film is The Family Man- a Nic Cage one, of course. Another favorite is A Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart as Scrooge.
2. My favorite Christmas song is Happy Christmas. I prefer Sarah McLachlan’s version to John and Yoko’s.
3. If you ask me, ’tis the season for showing your loved ones how much you care. We should always do that, but especially this time of year.
4. Attending Wigilia dinners on Christmas Eve is a holiday memory I will never forget.  My maternal grandfather’s side of the family did this until my great aunts got too old to host it. It was the only time of year I got to see those relatives. I saw my grandparents just not the rest of the family.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

My flashback is from December 2019, we knew our time with Prancie was limited and wanted a shot of her in the nativity where we had found her many years before.

  1. OH, My! i didn’t know that Prancie was a manger kitty. How sweet. Glad you have a picture to remember her that way.

    I am late and rather behind…so I’ll pass on the fill ins this week…but my fave…or rather one of my favorite Carols is In The Bleak Mid Winter…and tons more. I love to hear the Polish carols, they are so musical and nice. I always enjoy the Miracle on 34th Street…I think that is the title?
    ( really enjoy hearing all the classical music about Christmas…and once I heard some Cuban music from the mid 1700’s It was amazing! Never heard it again, I should research it.

    1. I can actually sing Silent Night in Polish, but my singing is awful. Yes, that is what Prancie’s book is about, her showing up at our manger. XO

  2. What a special moment being able to get a photo of Prancie in the Nativity Scene where you first found her. Also thanks for co-hosting fill-ins – we look forward to that EVERY week!

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom

  3. That is a cool picture of Prancie. I don’t know what my favorite Christmas Movie is (Unless Diehard is considered a Christmas movie) but I like The Family Man movie too.

  4. I’m happy to say your site opened right up for me this morning. I’m doing the happy dance.

    Love all your fill-ins and Cage made me smile.

    Awww on the flashback. A wonderful flashback.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  5. Love the photo of Prancie in the Nativity. Not surprised by your movie selection. Thanks for having the fill-ins for us each week. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

  6. We love that picture of Prancie💗 What a special remembrance, Ellen. Our favourite Christmas song besides Silent Night, that Granny sings throughout the year🙄 is Queen’s Thank God it’s Christmas from the moment it came out in 1984♪♫♪♫♫♪ Your movie was no surpurrize…MOL…Pawkisses for a wonderful Weekend🐾😽💞

  7. Dad is so pleased with your #2 answer. Though there are so many delightful Christmas tunes to cherish, he’s always had a thing for Happy Christmas. He says he still remembers sitting in his car in the parking lot of what used to be the 1704 restaurant at the former Motel 6 in South Deerfield where he worked, listening to it over and over the night John Lennon was shot, and still feels that same feeling (the cold, the light coating of snow at the time, etc.) every time he hears it. He’s never heard Sarah McLachlan’s version of Happy Christmas, and is going to look for it as soon as we’re done commenting.
