Eggnog or hot chocolate? I like both, but I don’t drink either one very often. I usually buy a couple small packets of hot chocolate and the smallest container of egg nog. And it’s mine all mine.
Does Santa wrap the presents or leave them open under the tree? This is a big issue of contention now, now that Elliot is old enough to understand the concept. When my sister and I were little, we would go out to the living room to see the tree encumbered by gifts, all laid out perfect and neat. Some things would be wrapped, and those were from mommy and daddy. But everything just placed out there was from Santa. In Ash’s household, his parents wrapped all the gifts, even from Santa. Though he and his brother stopped believing way too early. I still haven’t talked to him about how we’re going to do it but if I have my way, some will be out in the open.
Colored lights on a tree or white? Colored, for sure.
Do you hang mistletoe? I have, when we used to throw Christmas parties.
When do you put your decorations up? I don’t have any kind of traditional day but as soon as I can after Thanksgiving.
What is your favorite holiday dish? I could eat an entire can of cranberry sauce all by myself.
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? When I was younger, we usually did and it was always pajamas. Apparently Ash did too so I guess we’ll be starting this tradition soon.
How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Well, it’s a pre-lit one so that’s taken care of. We have a gold star for the top and I have a bunch of basic ornaments and a box full of my childhood ones. This year, there are far less because Elliot likes to attack said tree.
Snow: love it or hate it? Having only dealt with it a few times, I can say that it is pretty but if I had to live in it, I’d die.
Can you ice skate? Last time I did it I remember my ankles turning inward a lot.
What is your favorite holiday dessert? Lane cake or fudge
What is your favorite holiday tradition? I love going to church, even though we barely make it anymore.
Candy canes: yum or yuck? I like the cherry ones – the rainbow colored ones. But I rarely eat them.
Favorite Christmas show? Mickey’s Christmas Carol.
