Friday Five: 5 (or 10) Christmas Things with Matthew Paul Turner

For a Friday Five at Christmas, I could think of no better person than author Matthew Paul Turner. He's the author of several books, including the Hear No Evil: My Story of Innocence, Music and The Holy Ghost which drops in February.

He also blogs regularly at Jesus Needs New PR, and includes this recent funny post about live nativity scenes.

And, there's a Christmas bonus. Not only did Matthew give us the 5 best things he's read recently, but also lets us know 5 things he likes about Christmas and 5 things he doesn't like about Christmas...

5 best things about Christmas

1) Baking pies

2) Spending time with family

3) Singing Christmas carols

4) The Charlie Brown Christmas Special

5) The traditions--decorating, putting my son in Santa's lap, fireplaces, and holiday parties with friends

5 things he doesn't like about Christmas

1) Holiday consumerism and busyness

2) The Shrek Christmas Special

3) "Silver Bells"--a ridiculous excuse for a song in my opinion

4) Spending more than three days with family

5) The struggle I have to engage the hope of Jesus

5 Best Things Matthew Paul Turner has read recently...
1) Entertainment Weekly

2) The Twitter feed of @FakeAPStyleBook--Hilarious.

3) The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell

4) A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers

5) Psalm 23
