Christmas Meme

Joe tagged me. Here you go:

  1. Egg nog or hot chocolate? I would have to prefer hot chocolate. But, I rarely drink it. It's too sweet I think. I would rather have a nice warm Tom and Jerry. If you don't know what it is, you are missing out (feel free to ask me about it!)
  2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? I do, but I don't usually have the patience to make it look all fancy with ribbons and bows. That is usually my mom's job to tell me to add more.
  3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? It depends. Our tree growing up was mostly colored and I loved it! But I do like the elegance and beauty of the while lights on trees and houses.
  4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope.
  5. When do you put your decorations up? Hmmm. Didn't really have much at my apartment, but did get them out last week. Due to lack of time mostly! Next year I will go all out! When I was living at home, the family would usually put up the decorations the weekend of Thanksgiving.
  6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Homemade mashed potatoes and rice, with a little homemade gravy on top of both. (And Grandma's homemade buns on the side).. .. ..mmmm....
  7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? I don't know if I necessarily had a FAVORITE memory, but there were lots.
  8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I can't remember. I am sure some rotten kid at school told me, since I am the oldest.
  9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes, that was the way we always have done it. We would open most of them on Christmas Eve and then "Santa's" gift in the morning.
  10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? I don't have one at this moment.
  11. Snow! Love it or dread it? I love it as long as it is nice enough to play in!
  12. Can you ice skate? Yes, but since it seems as if I do it only once every few years, I can be quite sore and bruised up the next day.
  13. Do you remember your favorite gift? No. I will admit, I think I might have been spoiled as a child. (I still am.)
  14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you? Being with family and friends...enjoying each others presence....laughing and sharing memories.
  15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? How do I choose ONE?
  16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Driving around for hours looking at Christmas lights while listening to Manheim Steamroller!
  17. What tops your tree? N/A.
  18. Which do you prefer, giving or receiving? Giving for sure! But receiving a little gift here and there doesn't hurt!
  19. What is your favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night
  20. Candy canes? Mmm. The traditional Peppermint and the Cherry flavored ones as well.
  21. Favorite Christmas movie? 1) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, 2) Elf, and 3) How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the one with Jim Carrey).
  22. What do you leave for Santa? Nada! If I left out cookies, I would eat them before he would get there!

Great responses. If you like Manheim Steamroller, you'll love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It's tops at our house this year.
