So this is what I like to do for Christmas when we are usually home.
Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
Definitely Hot Chocolate. With either lots of marshmallows or whip cream. YUM!!!
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?
When I was younger Santa did some wrapping and left some things unwrapped. I would have to say now with my own we wrap some and we do leave some unwrapped so the tradition continues.
Colored lights or white?
If my hubby had it his way they would all be colored and I am not talking about the little colored bulbs it would be the old fashioned colored huge bulbs. But since I do all of the decorating...I win so they are white and accented with color. :)
When do you decorate?
We have 3 December birthdays in our family so I feel like I can not decorate until we celebrate them. So usually around the first of the month or if I get it all together then right after Thanksgiving.
Real or Fake Tree?
Fake...Although we have had both. I prefer fake...less mess. :)
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
My favorite tradition and I am sad we can't share it now with our own kiddos is a local nursery who used to set up for Christmas with all kinds of holiday displays and old time working snowmen, characters, and other holiday things. We loved to walk through the display and see penguins playing on the ice and moving, holiday bakers baking Christmas cookies, and other fun things to look at from these animated puppets. Some was lost to a fire and what was saved after they closed is on display now but it still isn't the same.
Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
My favorite gift as a child was receiving the Barbie townhouse...yes I played with Barbie dolls and loved every minute of it. I was so excited to get that one year because I knew my parents had really splurged to get that for us and didn't really have the money to do so.
Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
I like Candy Canes but I could do alright with or without one.
Favorite Christmas Movie?
White Christmas with Bing Crosby, and Christmas Vacation
Do you shop online or at stores?
If I can avoid the stores I do...I don't like shopping in all of the crowds. I prefer shopping online right now.
Photo Cards, Letter or Store Bought Card?
Photo Cards. I love seeing everyone's family and neat ideas they come up with. I just wish I had a creative way to display them. I already have an idea for ours next year I can't wait to do it.
This was fun !
