Holiday Things

Saw this on a few people's blogs :) And then I stole it. So here goes!

Egg nog or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate, with lots of whipped cream. I do like eggnog, in fact, we bought a small carton the other day...however, only a small amount at a time thanks to the calorie gods. Hehe.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
I love wrapping presents, early, so I can sit them by the tree for a few weeks. So pretty :)

Colored lights on tree/house or white?
I like white lights and blue lights; however, I'm sure we'll have the multi-colored lights up somewhere on our house (hand-me downs much?).

Do you hang mistletoe?
I never have...and haven't ever seen it hung at anyones house I don't think!

When do you put your decorations up?
When I feel like it! I will have to do that before we leave for Michigan. Not that I have tons of decorations or anything :-/

Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Well it's still my favorite memory, but our Polish dinners on x-mas eve fo sho. Mmm pierogies.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I don't even remember!!! Apparently I wasn't too traumatized!

How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
I have silver and blue ornaments, and also a bunch of randoms. I've only had 2 x-mas trees (away from parents home) so I don't have too much stuff.

Snow! Love it or dread it?
Fun for a short period of time. Glad I don't live in it for months ;)

Do you remember your favorite gift?
Not Dad always gets us all the "techy" stuff (like one year a computer, last year was a GPS)...that's always nice ;)

What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Obviously spending time with family and friends. I just love the holidays for many reasons. The weather, the lights, the hot drinks, etc.

What is your favorite holiday dessert?
The peppermint pie the my aunt makes! Dewars peppermint ice cream, with a chocolate fuge layer, and lots of whipped cream and crushed candy canes. Holy YUM!!!!

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Oops, already said it. Polish dinners!!!!

What tops your tree?
Umm, I used my parent's angel last year because they are scrooges and didn't put up a tree ;) Buuut, she is kind of creepy so I think I'll get a star this year!!!

Which do you prefer, giving or receiving?
I like giving. I never know "what to ask for". I like making things for people, last year I made and decorated candles.

What is your favorite Christmas song?
Silent Night and O Holy Night.

Candy canes?
I like the fruity flavors.

Favorite Christmas movie?
I have to say A Christmas Story or Chris will kill me, but secretly it is the Santa Clause with Tim Allen.. don't judge me.

What do you leave for Santa?
Ummm, nothing! I'll leave "Santa" some cookies but they might get eaten before he gets to them ;)

That peppermint pie sounds amazing, you are going to have to steal the recipe and post it for everyone (or at least me) to make.

I am seeing this on more blogs and might break down and do it to finish up nablopomo.
