Christmas Meme

Since I'm leaving at the crack of dawn and won't be back until around 10pm, I'm wussing out and writing this Christmas meme. Enjoy, and feel free to steal it!

1. Eggnog or Hot Chocolate?

Hot Chocolate. I can make a frozen one or a hot one and sometimes I make an adult version- add a little of that new Baily's Chocolate Mint creme to the ordinary cocoa and... bliss.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
He sits them under the tree unwrapped. Dad and mom always wrapped their gifts to us.

3. Colored lights on the tree/house or white?
White lights only. And they cannot blink or flash or stutter. Just plain white lights on the house and the tree. The end!

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
Yes I do. Also, I have a hat with some pinned on but I need to be careful when I wear it, ewwww.

5. When do you put your decorations up?
We used to always put them up the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year I left my pink Christmas tree up all year around and turn it on each night in December

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
Well, you mean there's other food than dessert at Christmas? 'Prolly bacon breakfast casserole, I guess.

Probably decorating with the family or lighting up the courthouse

I just don't remember. I still get my picture taken with him at the mall... what truth?

Not anymore!

10. What kind of cookies does Santa get set out for him?
Whatever kind I have left. One year we left him homemade fudge.

11. Snow! Love it or dread it?
LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

12. Can you ice skate?
Uh, no! But I wish I could. I tried to learn the year I got ice skates but it didn't get cold enough and we didn't have an indoor rink. Then I outgrew the skates. Oh, then another year I was pregnant and skated one time around the rink and felt sick so I stopped, then found out I was knocked up a few weeks later. Nice, eh?

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
It was probably the handmade Barbie dream house

14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you?

'Bout time we had this questions: my mom's recipe of homemade sour cream coffee cake, and her cut out cookies. I have the recipe for these and make them now

Opening stocking first, then eating breakfast and then opening gifts in order of age while we all watch each other and take pictures and be silly!

Both equally.

"The First Noel", "Deck the Halls", "Hark the Harold Angels Sing," "Silent Night" hands down, "O Holy Night" if Connie sings it, "Santa baby" by Ertha Kitt ONLY... oh, I didn't read the question- it said carol- not carolS

20. Candy canes... yuck or yum?
I like 'em. Bring 'em on. Yum!

21. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
Yes. And here's a funny- my dad said I need to date someone named Dean because several years ago I dated some guy named Dean and we broke up right before X-mas and dad found a gift with the name Dean that they had bought for him so we need to give it to someone... go figure!
