I loved both of your responses, this was a great laugh for me!

Christopher, you will NOT be spending Christmas day nude will you? You bad egg :)

Hey I used to play spotlight with the torches with my cousins as well, it's a great Christmas holiday memory!


Susan, oh we don't have mistletoe over here, everybody knows what you are supposed to do, but since nobody has a mistle toe tree, we only have the fake plastic ones. So I've only had one kiss from underneath...probably from my nanna too or something unexciting like that :)

I laughed at number two, that cracked me up.
