Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Egg Nog and a healthy dose of Imodium AD.
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Separate wrapping paper for the "Santa" gifts. Learned this trick from friend Carol who also assembles EVERYTHING that can be assembled and places it under the tree unwrapped.
Colored lights on tree/house or white?
White outside, colored inside. Just like me.
Do you hang mistletoe?
Nope. But I should!
When do you put your decorations up?
After begging husband 3 times to get them down from the attic. This rule of 3 times/3 days begging also is also the standard that must be followed to get him to hang a picture.
What is your favorite holiday dish?
Crab legs with warm butter. It's been our holiday meal since I was a kid. Yum. Also followed with more Imodium AD.
Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
On Christmas Eve we always took a drive to look at the holiday lights. One of my parent's would forget something inside the house and then hurriedly throw all the presents under the tree before we left. Once I cracked operation forgottopee it was my turn to fake a trip and play Santa. No one told me that one of the wrapped gifts was a birdcage. WITH a bird in it. It wasn't the bird's best holiday as she was lobbed across the room in her cage, and then rolled under the tree.
When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
What? Take it back!
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
We celebrate at my folks on Christmas Eve. Husband's father's on Christmas Morning and husband's mother's on Christmas Afternoon. It's nonstop present opening. It's kinda gross. Carol just helped me haul away 4 garbage bags of toys from our playroom for Goodwill in preparation for this Christmas. Necessary because all of the grandparents try to outdo each other with the LARGEST holiday gifts possible every year and I need some floor space.
This Christmas I'm taking note and anyone who gives us a big ass gift will also get a big ass gift in return next year. A gift picked out by your grandchildren who insist on seeing it every time they come to your house. You are all on notice!
How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
REAL tree of course. With a hodge podge of ornaments, vintage bubble lights and those chunky cool bulb lights.
Snow. Love it OR DREAD IT ??
Snow. Love it. Sludge. Hate it.
Can you ice skate?
Hell to the no! Not even with double blades.
Do you remember your favorite gift?
Baby Alive man. Till I rotted her insides out shoving everything I could find in her mouth. Kind of like my current eating plan.
What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Why the little Baby Jesus of course!
What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
More eggnog. More Imodium AD.
Which do you prefer giving or Receiving?
What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Yum. For the first 2 minutes and then too minty. Though when sister and I were little we would get those candy cane sticks that were as thick as Santa's (censored). We would only be allowed to eat them for 5 minutes at a time and then put them away for later. My mom would actually set a timer. They became big saliva sticks after a few days. Yum.
What about you?
