Christmas meme

apparently this is a Christmas meme.
what exactly is a meme?
I don't know,
but I will answer the questions!

1. egg nog or hot chocolate?
well, given my last post, I will say eggnog, but I do appreciate a nice cup of hot chocolate after being outside. warms up my insides!

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just put them under the tree?
he wraps them up!

3. Colored lights on tree/house, or white?
white. hopefully there will be some on my house soon!! I think if I could have nothing else but lights, I would be happy. love them!

4. Do I hang mistletoe?
do I ever!! hee hee.

5. When do you put your decorations up?
well, the tree went up today. usually we wait till December first, but a few decorations were up a bit early!!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
hmm just one favorite? I dont know that I can pick just one.
love the whole turkey dinner works, potatoes, gravy dressing, all of it!

7.Favorite holiday memories as a child?
I remember being at my grandpas for christmas, and I got a big lifesize doll, and I was tossing it up and catching it, and my aunt came in and freaked out. she thought it was a real baby!

8.How and when did you learn the truth about santa?
I have a very bad memory- no idea on this one!

9.Do you open a gift Christmas eve?
used to open pajamas. now just the kids do!

10.How do you decorate your christmas tree?
well, hmm. not sure how to answer this one. the kids just toss the stuff where ever. I try to put my favorite ornaments together, so I can see them all. lots of star stuff. love stars.

11.Snow, love it or dread it?
I guess I love it. so nice when it isn't -30. even shovelling is okay- I don't do it too often!

12.Can you ice skate?
yes, I can! I try to go with the kids at least once- they go to an arena and skate for school, and we try to go as a family at least once! so maybe twice a year! my skates are a tad tight though. I don't know, do I invest in a new pair for twice a year??

13.Do you remember your favorite gift?
hmm. bad memory. can't think of a specific one, except that big baby doll!

14.What's the most important thing about the holidays for you?
food. and fun. and people. getting together, and eating!!

15.What is your favorite holiday dessert?
everything! except that christmas pudding stuff. don't like that. shortbread. chocolates, mmm. I think I need to go do some baking!

16.What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I think opening stockings first thing- even before you wake up your parents. so fun.

17. What tops your tree?
a star, of course!!

18.Which do you prefer- giving or receiving?
giving. making the gifts, deciding what to make! love it!

19.What is your favorite Christmas song?
Angels we have heard on High.

20.What is your favorite Christmas story?
I can't think of just one, but for a few years my mother in law has put together books with a story to read each day of December- such great stories in those!

alright. that was it. not too painful!
I would like to tag Kelly McCaleb
and Jessica!
