So here’s mine:
1. A Christmas song I can listen to even in June is:
This was a tough one because though they are “billed” as Christmas songs, in my head, all year long are “winter” songs like:
*I’m real sorry you guys, I personally couldn’t get these next YouTube links to work from my blog page. I hope you have better luck. If not you’ll have to click on the link “Watch On YouTube”, you’ll then be taken to YouTube’s site.
I’ve always loved Frosty and when I think of him I think of this picture of Jake with his dad and his first snowman. It was taken at the farm house on the “K&J Trailer’s” property right after we moved to Shipshewana, Indiana in January of 1998.
And this one, I love this one….
So, to answer the question correctly this is the “Christmas song” I could listen to in June…
2. Hot chocolate, eggnog or mulled wine?
3. When do you put your Christmas decorations up?
It used to be all done in one day the day after Thanksgiving, these days I peck at it whenever I get a chance – takes me from 2 – 7 days.
4. What are you having for Christmas dinner?
This year it’s gonna be thick cut pork chops on the grill, garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed broccoli in garlic and olive oil.
5. What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?
Christmas Eve dinner consisting of sausage and Danish Aebelskiver.
It’s the one and only tradition that I’ve brought to the Radermacher family and we only have it one night a year. It’s the traditional Christmas Eve dinner that’s been passed down from my great-grandmother Simonsen…on my maternal grandfather’s side of the family. As far back as I can remember this is what we ate at our house every Christmas Eve. Most all the folks from church would be at our house too after the last service – such commotion and excitement that’s been seared in my memory from those days! There’re be a few houses scattered across the United States making this tonight.

6. Have you ever gone caroling?
It was when we lived in Shipshewana, Indiana. For part of our company Christmas party we hooked a pair of draft horses (complete with sleigh bells) to the wagon one night close to Christmas, loaded up all the employees and drove around town singing…or trying too – thankfully the bells drowned out a lot. I think this was also the night, while trying to light the kerosene lanterns, I about lit up my hair!
