I was tagged at the office!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Schnapps

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Wraps and leaves under the tree.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
We haven't had lights on our house since moving into a house that is too tall to safely decorate. DJ on a ladder 3 stories up is not a good idea. The tree has all white lights, but I go back and forth on this.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?

5. When do you put your decorations up?
The last couple of years it has been the week before Christmas. This year we STILL haven't even got the tree out of storage yet and it's Dec. 21! We usually end up keeping it up for a long time though - one year till April and last year till February.

6. What is your favorite Christmas dish (excluding dessert)?
No real favorite but I always like that there are rolls to eat at Christmas dinner - with either Turkey or Ham.

7. Favorite Christmas memory as a child?
I liked the magic feeling of going to bed on Christmas Eve and then coming out Christmas morning to see all the new packages that had appeared under the tree.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I don't remember when I learned the truth.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
We let the kids open one gift that we know won't be a main one.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With all the ornaments we have collected over the years. I used to make a lot of them, so I like to see them and read the dates on the back. I need to make some more!

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?
I think it's necessary to feel like Christmas, but in general, I could do without.

12. Can you ice skate?
I will say yes because I understand the process, and am a good rollerskater, but really, not so much. Too hard on the ankles.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
No, but one year I got my first telephone and makeup and thought I was really cool.

14. What's the most important thing about Christmas for you?
Time off from work (so I can just hang out with my family.)

15. What is your favorite Christmas Dessert?
The assortment of homemade cookies that our neighboors bring over!

16. What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
Letting the kids eat whatever they want all Christmas day. Candy and oranges? OK. Cookies and Candy Canes? OK. They've learned that too much of that and they eventually need some "real food."

17. What tops your tree?
As big a star as I can find. I love stars.

18. Giving or receiving?
Giving. I love to see that I got just the right thing for each person and they love it. But I also love getting gifts that are a complete surprise that showed someone has been paying attention all year :)

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Children, Go Where I Send Thee

20. Candy Canes! Yuk or yum?
Yum! I love them!

What a great Christmas mini-album this would make!

Your turn!
