Christmas Quiz 
(stolen from Faye)
If you post your own Q+A's be sure to let me know so I can check out your holiday answers.

1. Egg nog or hot chocolate? I don't care much at all for egg nog.  Not the name, not the color, not the consistency.  I will take the hot chocolate, with or without a splash of peppermint schnapps.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? Santa did not wrap often when I was younger, but now that my attention span has grown (slightly) he wraps my presents just to make the magic last longer.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? We have never had lights on our house, but it's a strictly white lights on the tree household.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Never say never.

5. When do you put your decorations up? We are notoriously lazy.  We have done it as early as December 1st and as late as Christmas Eve.  And I would be lying if I said that tree hasn't seen it's share of Valentine's Days. 

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Chess squares (dessert) or Cream cheese & pepper jelly (appetizer) or my mom's dressing (side dish) or my dad's country ham (for Christmas breakfast). YEAH I WENT THERE!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? It really is a culmination of a my childhood.  As soon as we got out of school for Christmas break, my three siblings and I wold move all of our beds in to one room and sleep in the same room ALL of the break.  Many great memories of laughs, holiday movies, and listening for Santa's boots on the floor downstairs.

{ And yes, we still all spend Christmas Eve in the same room :) }

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Second grade, at the lunch table, from some kid named Timothy.  Jerk.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? We begged and begged every year.  We have a strict Christmas day tradition.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? My mom is an interior decorator so we always got to give our input.... BUT it always ended up very professional in the end :) We have traded in the sentimental ornaments for a more traditional tree, from this post.

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

12. Can you ice skate? I've never actually tried, but considering I can't roller skate/blade or walk and chew gum at the same time, I'll just spare myself the ER visit.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? They were all my favorites.  But, I remember getting one of those 5 disc changing stereos back in the late 90s, and boy did I love that thing. Oh, and my TalkGirl.

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

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? I cheated earlier and told you-- Chess squares, definitely.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Refer to #7

17. What tops your tree? Whoever had the patience to stick around that long with Mom while she is all bossy around that tree :)

18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving? Ever since I started college, I really became a big giver.  I love planning gifts for the person, and not just buying them a picture frame or some gloves.
Although, gloves are nice.

19. Candy canes: yuck or yum? Yum, peppermint or candy flavored, I like them all.

20. Favorite Christmas movie? ELF! Runner ups: Love Actually and Christmas Vacation.

21. Saddest Christmas song? Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Judy Garland. (watch that clip!) Reason: I was in the musical Meet Me In St. Louis, and the song was written for her for the movie.  The part of the song in the play is more bittersweet than people realize.  That being said, it is my favorite but it has to be JUDY!

22. What is your favorite Christmas song? Second place to the song I just mentioned and because I have no shame, I recorded this two years ago with some friends when I was procrastinating for exams.  Merry Christmas Baby by Hanson is definitely a favorite with me and my baby sister, (hey girl).
I blame the red bull.
You're welcome.
