Advent Calenday Day 6

I'll be out and about  a lot today  so this is a quick posting to give you the next question so you can get your answers in while I'm away from my desk.

Oh - and that reminds me - I just need to say that I'm delighted to see so many of you joining in the Advent Calendar giveaway and posting comments   for each blog.  I have enjoyed reading them all - but there are so many of you that I really don't have time to respond to each on individually. I wish I could, but like everyone else I'm rushing around, getting organised,  doing 101 jobs . . .

So please forgive me if I don't answer every post you leave. I am loving reading them and learning more about  you - but if I was to answer each and everyone then I'd have no time for anything else.  And Charlie is enjoying the number of cat treats that come his way with all your names as he picks the winners - so keep them coming!

Yesterday I talked about personal preparations for Christmas -  I hope some of you will get a chance to have some pampering or at least a small treat as you prepare.   And that started me thinking about what you'll be weraring for the big day. 

I know the magazines and the papers are full of  party dresses and glitter and glam -  but I'm not talking about those sort of things. What do you wear for Christmas Day?

Are you someone who likes to get dressed up, glam dress, hair done, full makeup?
Or do you prefer to go for comfort - jeans? A loose top  - perhaps even an elastic waistband? (One has to think of all that  Christmas dinner!)
Or perhaps you're someone who loves to have the fun factor?   Do you like special  Christmas jumpers with festive designs on them? Reindeers, holly - Santa?

When The Offspring was young I used to go for the fun thing - I had a jumper that was covered in Penguins one year and that was cute.

These days I got for something that's comfortable - but smarter than my usual working at home scruffy sweats!  So I have velvet trousers and a top with some  beaded decorations on it.  When it comes to the evening - when we have our Christmas dinner  visitors joining us then I'll opt for something a bit more glammed up -I have one silky blouse, but if I see something really nice when I'm out and about that will be a good excuse to treat myself.

So what about you? What do you think you'll be wearing on Christmas day?
Or what's your fantasy for glamour?

Today's giveway prize is the book the Babe Magnet picked out of the pile I have ready to give away - and he's chosen a golden oldie -  Cordero's Forced Bride. This was first published in 2009.

Taken in payment into his bed!
Alexa Montague is mortified. She's had to call off her sister's wedding, and now the ruthless, arrogant groom, Santos Cordero, is demanding that shy, ugly duckling Alexa, takes Natalie's place!
The Montagues have stolen his money and his convenient bride, so Santos will enjoy taking Alexa instead. For Santos does not - cannot - love. But his body burns for Alexa as it has for no other woman before. He'll keep her captive in his bed until she's begging to be his . . .

Don't forget to post your answers in the comments section and I'll get Charlie on the job of picking a winner.

Tomorrow is the first Friday of the month so my post - and the next question will be over on the Pink  Heart Society blog and you'll need to post your answers over there.  I'll put up a reminder here tomorrow in case you forget.

Like I said on previous post, living in a tropical island... its really hot during summer.... so we tend to dress casual as we do barbecue and enjoy the festive moments.

I don't bother dressing up. It's just the two of us and the cats so it's very casual.

I'm all for comfort. But quite a few years ago (over 15) my sister made me a necklace of red and green wooden beads with a golden bell hanging from it. I wear that every Christmas and think of her.

I will be spending Christmas day at my younger brother's place. since we will probably go bird watching I'll be dressed in jeans. Boxing Day is spent at my sister's place on a farm and jeans are the usual wear. This year I've bought a couple of new tops so will have something new to wear.

I don't have all of your 60 books but so far I've have all you are giving away. I have a lot of your books from the 1990's as I have my mom's Presents collection. I'm really enjoying reading all the posts. Thanks Kate!

I go for comfort as much as possible.

I will have my 'church clothes' on in the morning, but once we get home it's shorts & a T-shirt, because it's going to be **HOT**
