A Christmas Meme (apologies to those that hate them)

  • 1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate!
  • 2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? I wrap all the gifts and put them under the tree as I am done with them.
  • 3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Always all white.
  • 4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope never have. I don't want people randomly kissing me, thanks.
  • 5. When do you put up your decorations? As soon as possible after Thanksgiving. This year it's mostly just the tree. I am not going all out.
  • 6. What is your favorite holiday dish? There is no way I can pick just one. My favorite things are the appetizers and sweets that nobody bothers with during the year.
  • 7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: Probably when I got my Ballerina Barbie. (dorky, I know)
  • 8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? It was so long ago, I can't remember.
  • 9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes, we usually have a party that night.
  • 10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? With tons of ornaments, mostly white, gold, red, and rust.
  • 11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? I love it at Christmas time and for a couple weeks after that.Then it can leave!
  • 12. Can you ice skate? Yes, and I can even go backwards, really!
  • 13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Not really, I don't actually get many.
  • 14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Remembering the birth of Jesus and spending time with my family.
  • 15. What's is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Again, I'm not sure I can choose just 1.
  • 16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Baking tons of goodies and bringing them to all th parties I attend. Sadly, I won't get to do much of it this year.
  • 17. What tops your tree? A gold star this year.
  • 18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Definitely giving. I could really care less if I get anything. I like watching everyone else open their gifts.
  • 19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? O Holy Night
  • 20. Candy Canes?No, but I like the white chocolate bark with peppermint.
  • 21. Do you feel Christmas is too commercialized? Definitely.
  • 22. Real tree or artificial?I like both. We have a fake tree for ease and for allergies.
  • 23. Do you put lights up on the outside of your house? My wonderful hubby does, and he does a great job. No sloppy cheesey lights here.
  • 24. Do you do a Christmas Dinner or Supper and who cooks? Not really. Many years we are somewhere else on Christmas, but if we do, I cook.
  • 25. Is your family the everyone unwraps gifts at once sort or do you do it one gift at a time as the others watch? One at a time. I hate it when I miss something.
  • 26. Do your pets share in the festivities? Not really, we have never really given Brodie many gifts. He is in the room with us though.

I shamelessly took this idea from another blog. I love reading about Christmas traditions, so if you feel like it, fill out your own.

Are you going to take a picture of your tree? I'd love to see it!

Was fun reading your Christmas traditions but I don't want to write all that out about us. Isn't Ravelry great?!? But I spend way too much time looking around.

I always thought artificial trees were the worst idea, and then my hubby bought one last year anyway. First year I could breathe easily through the season in years. Quite the revelation--how could a tree hugger like me be allergic to the real ones! But I was.

I still wince when I lean into the tree, expecting needles and sap.
