A Christmas Meme

I have been tagged by Cathy for a Christmas meme. : ) So, here goes.

1. Hot Chocolate or Egg Nog? Egg Nog, baby!!

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Both, depending on the size of the gift.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Both

4. Do you hang mistletoe? I usually do, but I don't have any this year. I guess I need to buy some of the fake stuff to put around. : )

5. When do you put your decorations up? Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving, depending on our schedules.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Definitely dressing! : )

7. Favorite Holiday memory? Waking up on Christmas morning and realizing that it was CHRISTMAS...there were many gifts to open! That was the greatest. Also they year I wrote a letter and took it in to my mom and told her that Santa left me a note. I wrote about how good I had been and how he was proud of me, etc. Mom just giggled and said that was neat that he took enough time out of his busy schedule to leave it for me. : )

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? What truth???

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? We do Christmas Eve at mom's house. Then we come home and the kids open one gift (mom's choice). It just so happens to be pajama's that they get to wear for Christmas morning pictures. Shhhh...don't tell.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Funny you should ask. I always remember growing up how I loved to decorate the tree. As we got older, mom just sat and watched us do it. Well, I am very particular about where things go, etc. This year my kids were old enough to help. What a mess! There were boxes, balls, etc everywhere. I ended up redecorating it when they were gone. *LOL* The joys of motherhood.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it, but it is a rarity in Arkansas.

12. Can you ice skate? Never tried. Is it the same as roller skating?

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? A stereo!!

14. What's the most important thing? Being with my family.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Mom's chocolate pie, Martha's dream salad, and Ray's banana pudding.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Decorating.

17. What tops your tree? A Fiberoptic Angel. She is retiring after this year, though. She doesn't want to sit up there like a good girl. She is really pretty, though so I think she'll find a place on the entertainment center or something.

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? I love to buy gifts. : ) It's fun to receive as well. But, as the saying goes, it is way more fun to give than receive.

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Oh Holy Night

20. Candy canes, Yuck or Yum? I don't like peppermint...so YUCK. I like the strawberry or fruit flavored kind, though.

The rules say I have to tag six people to do this. So, I'm tagging
1. Skittles
2. Mike
3. Cheryl (since you love them)
4. Maggie
5. David
6. Crunchy Carpets

Ice skating is NOT the same as roller skating. I tried it for the first time last year and could barely stand up.

Mike said...

A good meme. I'll get to work on it.

Crunchy Carpets said...

Mike said...

Sorry, crunchy. I noticed you had done it after I'd tagged you.
