very most unfavorites F5

don't call it a comeback - ummm......friday 5 - least favorites, that is

genesis 49:10a long intro but a quick one to blog from will smama, who, in a logical progression from them out there to us in here insists,
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....
after translating an announcement from english into espaƱol to post on left right in the city's church website earlier today, i remain confused about double negatives, so just in case, i'm forgetting or not forgetting not to...here's mine:

1. dessert

not exactly or technically a dessert, but ribbon candy gets the cake for most obnoxious sweet

2. beverage

eggnog with rum or rum flavor or anything alcoholic added (plain vanilla-flavor nog with lots of nutmeg is one of my favorites)

3. tradition (church, family or other)

singing silent night with all the slips and slides during candlelight or other forms of worship

4. decoration

so many choices, so little time: i'll opt for heavily blue flocked fake or real trees

5. gift (received or given)

pass on this one (not being polite, simply currently cannot think of any on either side)

I forgot about fake blue trees...guess I repressed them...

ah yes...the slips and slides. Makes me cringe. I must of led a sheltered life as I have not seen blue flocked trees.

Blue trees? Ugh!

The slips and slides, YES!

Hahahaha, blue trees.

Our neighbors across the street when I was little had a white flocked tree and one of those colorwheels so it rotated and changed color. That's what I think of when I think of the family phrase: "Tacky toot!"

Blue trees??? Abomination, I say. Good play.

I always wonder who actually purchases the dyed Christmas trees -- who goes to the tree lot, looks around and says, "That aquamarine tree is gorgeous -- we'll take it!"

I don't think I've seen a blue flocked tree. But the small pink feather ones look cute in store displays, but I can't imagine one as a family tree. Even if it's fake, it's gotta try to look real.

I don't think I have ever seen a blue tree. That is just plain wacky.
