>woot woot it’s xmas time baby!

Holiday Season! (thanks Vesper)

1. Eggnog or Hot Chocolate? Hows about an eggnog hot chocolate? Ah Starbucks.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? Santa wraps teeny presents but the big ones, like ponies and such, are left unwrapped.
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Coloured.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? No, but perhaps I should over the door at the ‘Second Cup’ (ooh cute coffee shop girl)
5. When do you put your decorations up? No specific time…generally a couple of weeks before the xmas day.
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Tough call but I’m going to say mash potatoes.
7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? Xmas eve dinner at Gran’s and then opening the xmas pjs afterwards.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I was 8. I asked. Something just didn’t add up.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Definitely.
10. What kind of cookies does Santa get set out for him? This year Santa is getting truffles. If he doesn’t eat them all first.
11. Snow! Love it or hate it? Snow and I have a difficult relationship. I like the big, fat snowflakes and I like snow on cozy evenings. I do NOT like snow when I’m trying to get to work and the buses are slow or when I have to shovel it. Then I flippin’ hate snow and wish it was dead.
12. Can you ice skate? Sort of. I can skate in that I can move on skates. But I never stop. I just glide gracefully into the wall. Or bushes. Or whatever.
13. Do you remember your favorite xmas gift? Again tough call. Let’s do a top five list shall we? ‘lots-a-heart’ elephant from mum and dad, ring from DM, red slippers from Ian, earrings from Heather, and kick ass hat from Aunt Marilyn. These are my big ones.
14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays to you? Remembering those less fortunate and giving generously. We should always do this but I think it’s particularly important around this time of year what with the cold and the religious factor (which I think is crap, but others really care about and tisn’t fair that they should have a crappy presentless, foodless time).
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? Pudding!!
16. Favorite Holiday tradition? Watching Charlie Brown’s Christmas.
17. What tops your tree? An old angel that A.’s mum gave us.
18. Which do you prefer–GIVING OR RECEIVING? Giving. But receiving doesn’t suck.
19. What is your favorite Christmas Carol? “So this is Christmas”, “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and “Please Come Home for Christmas” (but the last one only if sung by Bon Jovi – shut up it’s awesome).
20. Candy Canes? Oh most definitely.
