The Christmas Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find both traditional and unique memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to either make it more relevant to our global players, or make it less repetitive.

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger called Mary Poppins at the blog It’s Not All Mary Poppins. A bit of trivia: She is the first person we ripped off who also won The Rising Blogger award while we were still at that blog's helm. She states that she lifted the meme from Creative Gene. It was probably stolen by the author of that blog, as well. But that is as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

  1. It's interesting to do these memes. From time to time they ask things that would be perfectly ridiculous to ask in a Norwegian setting - and that's a cool reminder that there are still cultural differences left in this world.

  2. I'm up and singing Santa Baby....

  3. It's good to see a blog that's updated as early as I'm up late xD

  4. I'm up! I have a Christmas concert today, so will be commenting tomorrow.
