Christmas Randoms

As my friend BohoMom said, consider yourself tagged and play too!!!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate for sure...not a big nogger...

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped, wrapped and wrapped again...complete with ribbon and bows!!!

3. Coloured lights on tree/house or white? White, they just seem to twinkle more...

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope

5. When do you put your decorations up? Not until December 1st, anytime after that is good

6. What is your favourite holiday dish? Turkey with gravy and jellied can-shaped cranberry sauce (without whole cranberries, yuck) hehehe

7. Favourite Holiday memory? My whole family getting together and hanging out for the entire day while my mom cooked turkey and we helped with the fixings

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I don't remember how old I was...but I remember thinking, ok, this sucks!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? I do now, my boyfriends family all get together on Christmas Eve (they have to rent a hall because there are too many of them to fit in one house!) and we do a gift exchange.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? In red and silver...I like it to match....my poor kids hehehe

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love watching it. Hate being outside in it. Hate shovelling it. Dread driving in it.

12. Can you ice skate? I can but don't because I broke a bone in my foot when I was younger and it's painful to skate now...which sucks because I love skating.

13. Do you remember your favourite gift? Probably my Black and White TV and my "Real Baby" when I was like 5 or 6...I asked for them and got what I asked for!!

14. What's the most important thing about Christmas? Being with family that we don't normally get to see in our busy lives....it's the one time of year that everyone seems to make the time...

15. What is your favourite Holiday Dessert? Probably Christmas cookies just because it's a tradition

16. What is your favourite holiday tradition? Now? That would be going to my boyfriends family's get together on Christmas Eve....it's so awesome to be with such a huge, loving family every year on the same day...

16.5. What is your least favourite holiday tradition? That will start this year with going to visit my Sister and Father's grave...this year Christmas Day will mean so much more than it did previously...my sister passed on Christmas Day...I think it will be bittersweet :(

17. What tops your tree? A big silver star

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Definitely giving! I get all awkward feeling like I don't deserve whatever someone is giving me lol....

19. Favourite Christmas Song? O Holy Night
