Christmas Meme

I saw this meme on a couple of blogs now so I thought it would be fun to play!

Eggnog or hot chocolate?
Egg nog...spiked with brandy. I am probably the only person who doesn't like hot chocolate!

Does Santa wrap the presents or leave them open under the tree? I'm scrooge-y but not that scrooge-y! I wrap the presents.

Colored lights on a tree or white? Colored...and blinky. They have to twinkle and blink!

Do you hang mistletoe? Yes.

When do you put your decorations up? The weekend after Thanksgiving...usually. As a kid, the tree would be bought Thanksgiving weekend and taken down New Years Day. I'm still within that realm assuming I'm in the christmas spirit and getting a real tree.

What is your favorite holiday dish? Stuffing

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Nope...Christmas Day reveal.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Twinkly lights, ball ornies and any other ones that are cute and fun. Twinkly star topper. My fiber optic tree is too frail to hold up the star topper so I have an old fashioned tree topper from the 50's for that one.

Snow: love it or hate it? Snow? What's that? The fluffy white stuff that I see on the tv? It looks fun but people tell me all these horror stories about it that I don't know what to think!

Can you ice skate? Oh yea, I can ice skate on my rear end! I have this problem that the moment I stand up on anything that it supposed to make me look graceful and roll or glide about, I fall down. I am the epitome of graceful!

What is your favorite holiday dessert? Warm apple and pear crisp with vanilla ice cream.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? Christmas Caroling Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve

Candy canes: yum or yuck? Yum. Love!

Favorite Christmas show? I'm opting for christmas movie and naming Love Actually.

I love Love Actually! :D That is a good movie! Great meme! So have you never lived where there was snow? How strange that must be! I still remember moving to California and laughing at everyone for breaking out their winter down in 60 degree weather. :D

What fun, I don't like hot chocolate either and I love stuffing :-).

We have lots of snow, it's pretty but can be a PITA, LOL.

You ARE the only person who doesn't like hot chocolate. LOL j/k I actually don't know very many people around here who do like it. We got pumpkin spice nog this year and it is wicked good.

My son broke our star this year accidentally so I let him pick out a new one. It looks like it from the 50's. Gold, center star made out of gold foil I think, lights on the corner/around the center star/one directly in the middle and of course nasty tinsel around the outside edge. My husband hates it but it does go well with my great grandmothers crocheted tree skirt that I have.
