I am linking up with Fabulous in First to take part in her Christmas Questionnaire, only a few days late. I'm not sure what's more fun answering the questions or reading others' responses.
Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
I am a hot chocolate person all the way! For the last few years my husband and I have received the flavored hot chocolates and boy are they yummy!!! I think my all time favorite is the French Vanilla. If you see it it's a must try!
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?
Santa visits at my in-laws (Bill and I are still waiting for our turn) and apparently he doesn't wrap the gifts. Although growing up everything was wrapped and I think it was all from Santa, if my memory is correct.
Colored lights or white?
YES! I love both. I like the white lights outside and the colored lights on the tree. Bill prefers the white and since I don't put them up . . . we compromise :)
When do you decorate?Our six month wedding anniversary was on December 5th so this was our tradition the first year. We have done the day after Thanksgiving a few times too.
Real or Fake Tree?
REAL! I love the smell and don't mind the mess, plus it's what I grew up with as a child.
What Tops Your Tree?
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?We have always, for as long as I can remember, celebrated Christmas Eve with my mom's family. Now that I am married this is "my family's" day. It's rushed and crazy but I love it!
Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
Apparently my Cricket doll was the hit of 1986. I don't totally remember the event but I've seen the video.
Do prefer giving or receiving?
BOTH. I love finding that perfect gift for everyone on the list but it also melts my heart to know that others can find that "perfect" gift for me too without a list.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
I have two. I love I'll be Home for Christmas and Christmas Shoes. Both are sad, but they tug at my heart and I'm a sucker for that stuff.
Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
I could take 'em or leave 'em. The traditional candy canes, yuck! But they have so many new flavors some of them I like :)
Favorite Christmas Movie?
I love Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life, and The Polar Express.
Do you shop online or at stores?
We do both. I love the convenience and lack of lines online but the touching and seeing of the stores.
Photo Cards, Letter or Store Bought Card?
We don't send cards. I know I know ten Christmases together and no cards. Every year we say "next year" maybe the 11th time will be the charm. I do love picture cards or store bought cards with a small note. NOT the letter of the year's events, dude shouldn't I have been aware of all that stuff as it happened.
I'm not sure what's more fun answering the questions or reading others' responses. If you haven't had a chance to participate head over there now!
