Christmas Favorite Meme







Shadow Falcon was err, kind enough to tag me with this one...and Yeah I usually do them when someone tags me...So here goes:

1. Hot Chocolate or Egg Nog? I'm one of those people who love egg nog, in spite of the cartoon I posted about it's origins ;-)

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? He definitely wraps mine....and does a nice job, to boot!

3.Colored lights on tree/house or white? White lights.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? No, but I carry it around with me just in case..hehe.

5. When do you put your decorations up? Usually when the spirit hits me, which is about two weeks before Christmas. I can't put them up too early if my heart's not in it.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Believe it or not, lagsagna.

7. Favorite Holiday memory? The Christmas when my brother and I got electric trains to put under the tree from my Dad. We had the whole village...the fun part was taking tinsel from the tree and putting it on the tracks...it used to sizzle and cause train wrecks...(what can I say, I had an older brother who put me up to these tricks). lol.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? When my brother (again) showed me my Dad putting together our bikes on Christmas Eve.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes...

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? White lights, Waterford crystal ornaments (I've been collecting them over the years), red bows, and a few sentimental ornaments from long ago stuck in there too.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it, as long as I don't have to travel in it.

12. Can you ice skate? Yes I can..used to be pretty good at it too...before all the ankle injuries caused me to put it aside.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? This is difficult because there were so many of them. Even though I was sort of a tomboy when I was young, I loved getting dolls from my grandmother.

14. What’s the most important thing? Staying in the spirt of what Christmas is all about and being grateful for family.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? I always make a mean cherry cheese cake and I admit it's my favorite.

17. What tops your tree? An angel

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? Giving of course...

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow...

20. Candy canes, Yuck or Yum? Yuck, they should only be used as decorations.

Peace

P.S. I made that coconut mounds cake.....and it's simply heaven!!!!!

White Christmas lights are just so beautiful. And yuck to candy cane too.

I'm so ready for it all to be over! Bah-hum-bug!

mist1 said...

Maybe I should carry mistletoe.

Jocelyn said...

Ooh, mistletoe in pocket. Very clever! Have you tried attaching it to some sort of crown, so that it dangles constantly above your head, wherever you go? What a lovely day you'd have then...

Pickled Olives said...

Nice list. I carried misletoe - only the ugly ones came up for a kiss. Total disappointment.

Odat said...

You have the recipe for the cake and you'll share it?

Michael C said...

Very, very nice. It put me in the holiday spirit. I open a few presents on Christmas Eve, but for an entirely different reason ;-)

OK if I do it here instead of on my blog? I envied you the train set. My brother got HO Gauge Lionel trains one year, but I was not allowed to even touch them. They were set up (TWO trains) on a huge table among a whole town of mountains, houses, trees and town buildings, even a couple of tunnels.

Not having a penis put one at a great disadvantage in our house.


1. Hot Chocolate or Egg Nog? Hot chocolate, with whipped cream

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped, beautifully

3.Colored lights on tree or white? White lights.

Crankster said...

I miss the lionel trains--we had them when I was a kid. Although they always derailed on the back side of the tree, we loved terrorizing the cats with them, and sending messages to each other.
