A Little Christmas Fun

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
I’ve never even tried egg nog, so I’m definitely going to have to go with hot chocolate on this one.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa puts the Christmas gifts out under the tree, or depending on size, on the couch for the boys.

Colored lights on tree/house or white?
We have both this year. I prefer white lights, but the kids like the colored lights, so I’m all about compromise on this one. The small tree in the boys room has colored lights on it.

Do you hang mistletoe?

When do you put your decorations up?
After December 1st.

What is your favorite holiday dish?
I love traditional holiday foods, but my favorite dessert around Christmas is my moms fudge or peppermint almond bark. Love it!

Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
I loved piling into the car on Christmas Eve and driving around looking at Christmas lights.My sister and I also slept in the same bed on Christmas Eve up until the year that I got married. We would sneak downstairs around 2:00 in the morning and see what Santa brought us.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I was probably 9 or 10 years old. It was Christmas Eve, and all of a sudden I got to thinking about everything and was like, “Hey….wait a minute.”

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
The boys will start a new tradition this year of opening up 1 gift of pajamas, a Christmas movie, and popcorn.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Jeremy sets the tree up, I put the lights on, and let the boys have at it with putting the ornaments on the tree. I’m not particular at all.

Snow! Love it or Dread it?
It’s Alabama. We rarely see snow, so when we do, I love it!

Can you ice skate?
Yes. Not well, but I can stay up.

What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Celebrating the reason for the season with family and friends.

What is your favourite Holiday Dessert?
Fudge, red velvet cake and peppermint almond bark candy.

What tops your tree?
An angel that Jeremy and I got when we first got married.

Which do you prefer giving or receiving?
I love to watch  the boys open up their presents. Kids really do make Christmas so much fun!

What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Mary Did You Know? by Mark Lowery, or Oh Holy Night. Beautiful songs with beautiful words.

Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum?

Favorite Christmas Show?
Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, A Christmas Story and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (not the Jim Carrey version!)

Merry Christmas y’all!
