Wednesday Hodgepodge: All Right

Here are the questions to this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Answer on your own blog, then hop back to From This Side of the Pond (click the graphic) to share some Christmas cheer, aka link up to the party. See you there! 

From this Side of the Pond
1. What's something about Christmas that most people like, but you don't? Elaborate. 

Most of the "Christmas" music played on most commercial radio stations? Our choice for today is an "All Beethoven, All Day" program to celebrate his birthday (Schroeder would be happy about that). Yesterday it was a Stuart Townend live in Ireland CD we thrifted.

2. Tell us about one cherished tradition from your childhood and if you'll make it happen this year? 

This Santa: a gift from relatives when I was really small.

3. In 1941 FDR declared December 15th Bill of Rights Day. Citizens were encouraged to fly the flag and gather for prayers and other ceremonies as appropriate. Did you know this? Will you fly a flag? Can you name all the rights and protections guaranteed in the first ten amendments of the US Constitution? Of the ten, which two do you value most? If you need a list you'll find one here. 

Jingle bells, jingle bells.

4. Do you know someone named Bill? Tell us something about him? Is there a famous 'Bill' you'd like to meet? 

Multiple Bills in our family.

Want to meet: Bill Shakespeare, Bill Wordsworth, Bill Shatner.

5. A step in the right direction, on the right track, bragging rights, be in the right place at the right time, get off on the right foot, right as rain, right side up, give your right arm for, have one's heart in the right place...choose a 'right' that applies to your life in some way in recent days and tell us how it's so.
Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor does he sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men. (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

I really enjoy Stuart Townend! I don't have any of his own cds but I think he might be on some of the Getty's cds.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
