christmas quiz

christmas quiz
if you post your own q+a's be sure to let me know so i can check out your holiday answers!

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate? i despise eggnog.  like, i LOATHE eggnog.  hot chocolate is pretty good, even better if there is creme de menthe liqueur in there!  or buttershots.  YUM.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? growing up (seeing as how i don't have children) my mom wrapped our presents to each other and we opened those on christmas eve.  then, we got santa gifts in the morning, sometimes those were wrapped, sometimes they weren't.  my mom hates to wrap presents, so i was usually given the duty of wrapping everything except my own!  hah!

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? growing up we had colored lights.  i get my type a-ness from my parents, so i always remember them being in the correct color order and everything.  if a red bulb went out, it got replaced with a red bulb.  and my dad put a clip on every single light to keep them straight.  this year, with the move and all, we don't have outside lights, but all of the lights we own for outside are white.  i'm a white light kinda gal.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? nope.

5. When do you put your decorations up? usually the week before thanksgiving, but this year i did the weekend after.  again, because of the move.  and kyle was traveling out of the country the week before thanksgiving, so he wasn't home to help me haul everything out of the attic.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? hmmm...probably hash brown casserole.  or stuffing.  or pecan pie.  pretty much all of it, if i'm honest.

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? i just always remember waiting until my dad got home from work on christmas eve, so i remember getting the dinner ready, wrapping presents and watching movies with my brother.  it was awesome.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? haha, my best friend growing up told me.  i never bothered to tell my parents that i knew, i wouldn't get presents then!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? ever since we started celebrating with both of our families, we've done christmas eve with my parents and christmas day with kyle's parents.  this year we are switching it up and doing the opposite days!

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? we have two now, thanks to the kohl's after christmas sale last year!  our big one is decorated with our wedding colors (dark aqua and red with silver and white) and our small tree has my baby ornaments and ornaments that kyle and i have collected over our years together.

11. Snow! Love it or dread it? love every second of it!

12. Can you ice skate? yes, we have a rink here in wichita, but i haven't been in forever.  i really want to go this year!

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? i loved my cabbage patch twin dolls.  i also had a barbie ferrari and a barbie rv that were pretty sweet, too.

14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you? family, friends and tradition.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? pecan pie!  and my cousin's wife makes the best pumpkin roll you've ever tasted.  SO GOOD!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? my family passes out our gifts in order of age.  my little brother goes first, then me and so on.  then we open them in age order, too!  i'm not sure i've ever heard of anyone else doing that, but i love it!  probably because i get to open the first gift every year!  the advantage of being the oldest child and marrying someone older than me.  ;)

17. What tops your tree? a glittery wire star on one and a lightblocks snowflake on the other.

18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving? i love giving gifts!  i think it is so much fun to browse around and find something that you just KNOW someone will love!  that's why i christmas shop year-round!  you never know when you'll find the most perfect item!

19. Candy canes: yuck or yum? hate the peppermint ones, love the rest.

20. Favorite Christmas movie? ELF, a christmas story, christmas vacation, rudolf, frosty the snowman.  pretty much all of them.

21. Saddest Christmas song? most of the country christmas songs are really depressing, but that christmas shoes one is super sad.  not a fan.

22. What is your favorite Christmas song? i love o tannebaum (in german, of course!), because of the memories of singing it in my high school german class.  which i had with my best friend and it was totally the best class.  ever!
