A Holiday Meme from @triciagoyer - win big!

My friend Tricia's latest book, Remembering You, is a story about a girl and her grandpa (and well, there's much more to the story, but for the purpose of the MEME, we'll leave it at that!) and this Christmas she's giving a shout-out to our elderly relatives by hosting a contest where we get to share about our grandmas, papas, aunts, uncles, etc...!

Here's how it will work...post and answer the below questions on your blog or Facebook. Then either tag specific people or tag your readers/friends (so they will answer share and answer the questions too). Then hop over to her blog to fill out the linky. Easy.

Tricia will be choosing 10 winners to receive a 4 book Tricia Goyer prize pack***!

Here are the MEME questions!

1. What's your favorite holiday song?
Carol of Bells

2. What's your favorite holiday tradition?
Christmas Eve with extended family.

3. If you could travel one place with an elderly family member where would you go?
Brazil with my gram.

4. What questions would you ask?
What are your top 5 memories of your life.

5. What is a non-tangible gift have you received from an elderly relative?
My grandma's sayings: "Don't wish your life away, it will go quick enough!" "Well, Judas priest!" and so many more. Also, memories of playing Simon Says, Red Light, Green Light and countless board games. The gift of time - time spent just hanging out me, talking to me and just being with me. I try to take that into all my relationships - it's not the doing so much as it's just being with someone.

6. What is the best/worst/strangest gift you've received from an elderly relative?
Crochet door knob warmer.

****On December 22nd ten people who have filled out the linky at Tricia's blog will be selected at random to win one of the ten 4-book prize packs. You can either have it sent to yourself or a friend. To enter all you have to do is answer the MEME on your blog and then fill out the linky on this post. Easy.

Then be sure to pop over and read the other MEMEs on the linky - let's celebrate our elderly loved ones!

I tag, Robin at Pensieve, Loring at Team5Morris, Christen Krumm!
