Whatcha Say Wednesday

1. What is a family tradition you’ll pass on to your significant other/kids?
I don't have a lot of family traditions. Well let me reword that. I don't remember any family traditions that were involved with holidays. I did make a couple of traditions when I got married and having kids. We as a family open up one present on Christmas Eve which is our Christmas pj's that we sleep in. The second one is stockings. My 9 year old still believes in Santa but even when he 'stops' believing I will probably still do the stockings as I think they are fun!

2. How early do you start holiday shopping?
I usually try to shop in Sept or Oct but as the years go by it seems to be later and later.

3. Pick a song of the day!

Where in the nursery rhyme does it say humpty dumpty is an egg?
I just always assumed he was a egg cause of the pictures I have seen with this rhyme!
