Get to Know Your Friends

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Hot Chocolate.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Wrapped presents please!

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
Single colored lights like white or blue. No multi-color.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: Getting up early - like 6:00am and waking my parents up to ask them if Santa came.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I found a bag full of toys that I had asked Santa for in my parents closet.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Yes -- lots. When my sister and I stopped believing in Santa, my parents decided to let us open our gifts on Christmas Eve since we had to go to my great grandmothers house at lunch on Christmas Day. We had more time the night before. My husband was a little appalled at the idea when we first got married until he realized we didn't have to take turns on Christmas Day with both our families. My family Christmas Eve and his Christmas Day morning.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? All kinds of ornaments - hardly anything matches, definitely no garland!

Love it as long as I can still get to the store.

12. Can you ice skate?

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
A red non-motorized scooter and NKOTB concert tickets!

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Remembering the birth of Jesus and lots of time with family.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
Chocolate chip cheeseball -- Thanks for the recipe Stacy!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Opening presents on Christmas Eve.

17. What tops your tree? a fiber optic angel

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? Giving the perfect gift!

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
I hate Christmas music -- too festive I suppose.

20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum??
I live non-mint flavored canes. Do they count?

I stole this from Stacy. Thanks girl!!

My family always did that one side on Christmas Eve, one on CHristmas Day thing. But now that I'm married, we go to both families on Christmas day. We just can't bear to not do that quite yet. :)
