Christmas Quiz!

In the spirit of Christmas being less than one week away...

I've seen this floating around the blog world, both on Kristine and Erin's blogs. Love those girls, so I jacked it for myself. ;)

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?
I like both. I usually just drink hot chocolate though. I do love me some eggnog though.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
Santa definitely wraps it all! With the help of his colorful elves of course.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
Growing up, we always had colored lights. Now we usually do white. THANK GOD.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
I did this year. It's not real, but it still counts if you want to get some sugar ;)

5. When do you put your decorations up?
Usually the day after Thanksgiving, but this year it wasn't until last weekend. Oops!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
I'm all about the ham and mashed potatoes!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?
My little sister and I would always leave Santa milk, cookies, a little note and an extra gift. He would ALWAYS write a note back to us, and we loved waking up in the morning to see the empty plate and read his note. :)

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
Casey and I had heard some kids talking about it at school, but of course we wouldn't believe anything until we heard it from our mom. We came home to ask her if Santa was real. She said, "Of course he is!" We told her we'd heard otherwise and wanted to know why people would say that. She said, "Do you want the real truth?" Um, yeah of course. "No girls, Santa isn't real. Your dad and I put those presents under the tree for you." Oh. My. God. Talk about traumatizing! We threw fits and cried and cried. We even called our Nana and she got onto my mom for telling us, HA!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
We always did as kids, and it was always Christmas PJs to wear that night. :)

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
It's a whole random mess of ornaments. We have ones that we made in school as kids, we have one from our 1st Christmas that our grandparents had made. They're all different and don't really match, but they all have meaning. :)

11. Snow! Love it or dread it?
I live in Texas, so we don't typically get a white Christmas. It is a pleasant surprise though when we do.

12. Can you ice skate?
I can't skate, period. Plus, I'm scared of ice skating because when my mom was a kid, she fell on her knees and sat back on her legs and the blade went into her leg. That story scared me enough!

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
I've had plenty of amazing gifts. My friends and family always know just what to get me. :)

14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Being with family and participating in traditions. It makes me so happy.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Pumpkin pie, of course!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Waking up SUPER early in the morning, not even getting out of PJs and all gathering around the tree while my dad plays Santa and passes out our gifts, but not without opening our stockings first!

17. What tops your tree?
Growing up it was always this star that had garland and lights on it. So wonderfully tacky.

18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?
I LOVE giving. I get a little carried away and buy too many presents sometimes, but I love seeing people's reactions as they open what I got for them.

19. Candy canes: yuck or yum?
Ehhh, mainly yuck. I hate how sticky they get. Gross.

20. Favorite Christmas show?
Christmas movie? I love them all. I've been watching a lot of Elf this year. :)

21. Saddest Christmas song?
Christmas Shoes, for real. Look it up.

22. What’s your favorite Christmas song?
Hands down, All I Want for Christmas is You. Santa Baby runs a close second.
