Christmas Questionnaire!

I am so excited to be linking up with Michelle over at Fabulous in First for a Get To Know You Christmas Linky.

HOT CHOCOLATE or EGGNOG?
Hot chocolate fo' sure! I love me some peppermint in it too!

DOES SANTA WRAP PRESENTS OR JUST SIT THEM UNDERNEATH THE TREE?
Santa is a wrapper, no doubt about it! Wrapping the gifts is the best part and slightly therapeutic.

COLORED LIGHTS OR WHITE?
White lights, hands down. Simple, beautiful, classic! LOVE!

WHEN DO YOU DECORATE?
It's a slow process. I'm not sure it ever fully gets done until winter break starts, but the thought is there.

REAL OR FAKE TREE?
Real! I don't know any different. We would go as a family and cut down our tree every year. I love the fresh smell of pine. Fake trees are beautiful too, but not for me.

WHAT TOPS YOUR TREE?
Nothing. Our tree usually is too close to the ceiling to add anything on top. HA!

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MEMORIES OR TRADITIONS?
My favorite holiday tradition is decorating the tree. When I was little, we would literally string popcorn to decorate it. We would sit on the couch, watch TV and string away. We haven't done it for several years, but it is a tradition I will always remember and cherish!

DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR FAVORITE GIFT AS A CHILD?
Yes, as if it were yesterday. When I was 4 or 5 my dad made me a wooden kitchen set-stove and all. I loved pretending to play house and that gift was from the heart. He also made a wooden cradle for my favorite doll. And my mom sewed a matching pillow and blanket for it. THE BEST!

DO YOU PREFER GIVING OR RECEIVING?
Giving is the best! I love finding the perfect gift and seeing someone's face light up when they open it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
Jingle Bell Rock

CANDY CANES. YUCK OR YUM?
Love nor hate. I love peppermint. Candy canes are nice, but not a must have.

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE?
A Charlie Brown Christmas

DO YOU SHOP ONLINE OR IN STORES?
Both! I love my Black Friday sales and then online shopping fills in the rest.

PHOTO CARDS, LETTERS OR STORE BOUGHT?
I am a photo card crazy person! I LOVE them. I take pictures all year trying to find the "perfect" pictures for our family card. I also love receiving photo cards. I look forward to seeing all my friends and their kids and how much they have changed (or not).

Now it's your tun my friends. Link up and join in the holiday fun!

  1. I think wrapping is therapeutic, too and I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who can't find the time to finish decorating until the last candy cane sucking child is out that door before break! :)

  3. Peppermint hot chocolate is the best! Also, I remember getting a "kitchen" one year too. It was one of the best gifts ever.

    Have a Merry Christmas!
