It's Christmas Eve!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Nog
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? Santa does not have time to wrap.
3. Coloured lights on tree/house or white? I like the old school mixed up coloured lights.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope.
5. When do you put your decorations up? Not before Dec. 1. EVER.
6. What is your favourite holiday dish? Stuffing.
7. Favourite Holiday memory as a child? The year Mom and Dad wouldn't get out of bed so Scott and I carried all of the presents to their room. We unwrapped on their bed.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My brother. With the wisdom only an 8 year old can possess, "H-woman, think about it: Santa, the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny--they all write JUST LIKE MOM!"
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Nope.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? An eclectic collection--I try to add a new one every year.
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it in the mountains. Not on streets or sidewalks.
12. Can you ice skate? You betchya! We used to live beside a big slough and a river--there was always skating. But no girly figure skates. Hockey skates all the way!
13. Do you remember your favourite gift? Too many...but the year my brother moved away from home, he bought me a stuffed dog--Pooch Patrol. A black Doberman named Midnight. He's still on guard in my closet.
14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Family. And food.
15. What is your favourite Holiday Dessert? Hmmm...pumpkin pie and Auntie Shirley's three layer jello salad
16. What is your favourite holiday tradition? Stockings.
17. What tops your tree? An angel that was made by a neighbour
18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving? I know the politically correct answer is giving (which I like to do, don't get me wrong) but really, who doesn't love presents?!
19. What is your favourite Christmas Song? Grandma got run over by a reindeer, O Holy Night by John Berry is amazing, but this year, I've got new favourites from the Christmas Carol Project: Bah Hum Bug and God Bless Us Everyone.
20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? Yuck. I'm a caramel girl all the way.

And with that, I'm off to change out of my work clothes and hope that Visine will soothe these tired eyes. Wishing you all the Merriest of Christmases! I hope that wherever you are, you are safe and with the people you love.

Merry Happy Ho Ho!
