Yippee-ki-yay, Santa Claus!

Which Christmas type am I? The (German) test I found on the FamLog says:

Zum Weihnachts-Test bei der Film-Community moviepilotZu moviepilot - Gute Filme für Kino, DVD & TV

I am John McClane from “Die hard”.
I love family Christmas and wipe out everything that gets in my way. I fight to the blood for the last Barbie doll for my daughter, and hunt the Christmas goose with the bazooka. Christmas never gets boring with me! (And who are you?)

Surprisingly, the “Die hard” movies are not shown on TV during Christmas this year1 – now what happened there??

  1. except for part 4 on pay TV []

A countdown baton – or something…

  • 12 things that annoy you:
    12 drummers drumming
  • 11 things you couldn’t live without:
    11 pipers piping
  • 10 things you’re looking forward to:
    10 lords a-leaping
  • 9 things you wear/carry every day:
    9 ladies dancing
  • 8 series/movies you could watch over and over again:
    8 maids a-milking
  • 7 objects you touch every day:
    7 swans a-swimming
  • 6 things you do every day: watch
    6 geese a-laying
  • 5 kinds of food you couldn’t live without:
    5 golden rings
  • 4 people you’d like to spend more time with:
    4 calling birds
  • 3 of your current favorite songs: by
    3 French hens
  • 2 people who influenced your life a lot:

  • 1 person you could spend the rest of your life with:

Instead of listing 78 personal things in this German baton found at the Prinzzess’, I took the answers from what came into my mind at once when I saw this countdown from 12: The Uncle Scrooge comic “The Thrifty Spendthrift”) by Carl Barks from 1963, based on the old Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. :) Even though Easter is almost there…


(If you want, though, you can pick up this baton and answer it seriously…)
