        I really don't think I have a preference.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I'm guessing that sitting on a beach is a summer sport ;->

      A Love for Reading

          I've always loved reading, but find I need to set aside time for it now. Your suggestions of magazines for gifts is a good one. As a kid, we looked forward to the magazine subscription our aunt gave us each year.

        • anonymous 4 years ago

          My parents did read to me often as well as telling stories. Most of my reading is Squidoo related.

        • anonymous 6 years ago

          Don't as much as I use to, but I do try.

        • anonymous 6 years ago

          Ah I read all the time online but I rarely ever get time to read books.

        • anonymous 6 years ago

          Sad to say, I spend way more time reading stuff online that I do with an actual book.

        I always make time to read

            It seems like most of the reading I do these days is either for school or work! Squidoo is a great place for me to take a break and read up on things I am interested in!

          • anonymous 4 years ago

            I grew up in a house full of books, and still love to read.

          • MamaRuth 5 years ago

            I can't imagine life without books. I read every day (and everywhere). Books are stacked by every chair in my house, beside the bed, and stashed in the car (in case I get stopped by a train). I agree with Jorge Luis Borges who said "I imagine paradise will be a kind of library".

          • Cynthia Sylvestermouse 6 years ago from United States

            I am always reading! When I finish one book, I start another book. I spend an hour or more reading each day.

          • anonymous 6 years ago

            Reading is my life <3

          • JJNW 6 years ago from USA

            Yes, my parents were big on reading, and I have passed that onto my kids. I love reading!

              I try to pay attention to the casual comments my friends and family make about things they would like to have. When the holidays roll around, I usually have a list ready of items they have forgotten about, but they are guaranteed to love!

            • anonymous 4 years ago

              Surprises are always....well, a surprise!

            • writerkath 4 years ago

            • Cynthia Sylvestermouse 6 years ago from United States

              I love to give and to receive unusual gifts!

            • anonymous 6 years ago

              I like to make my own gifts so yes I guess I do get the unusual.

            • JJNW 6 years ago from USA

              I try very hard to get or make especially personal gifts. I can't spend a lot, so it takes a lot of thought!

            No, I just buy what's there without much thought.

              Its Different In Australia

              Australians celebrate Christmas in a different way to the folks in the Northern Hemisphere. Here it is summer and usually very hot. So the beach and informal get togethers, usually around a barbecue or a picnic, is the way we go. Cooking is not appreciated either and cold ham, turkey, chicken, prawns, salads and lots of fruit and nuts are on our menus. Of course we usually have Christmas cake and some still have puddings.

              Our songs ar different too. We have a much less religious emphasis on the day now than in past years and many don't bother with it much at all, except for the holidays of course. So I want to share with you one of our favorite songs.

              Six White Boomers

              We Love to Put Ourselves Down

              And to laugh at our ways

              Australians are a mixed breed now. We have a multi-cultural population and many are from countries where Christmas is unknown. That's why the emphasis is not so strong on the actual celebration of a religious festival.

              The following song is a take on some of our ways. Hope you enjoy it.

                  Baking cookies, setting up the tree &amp; train, and making gifts for those in need are always on our family list. Remember those at your local food banks, folks!

                  Really enjoyed all the classic Christmas song, brought back some pleasant memories..My Grandma was a big Bing Crosby song, totally forgot the calming effect his voice had on me!
