25 Questions: Holiday Style

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!  I saw this on someone else's blog and had to follow along, what a fun little questionnaire!
25 Questions: Holiday Style

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?  Hot Chocolate (or even better, Peppermint Hot Chocolate!)

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa doesn't wrap presents and they're usually at both chimneys...although this year we've been informed that Santa is going to be presents under the tree (not too happy about that...)

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? I like the white lights but I've grown up with colored lights under the tree...

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope.

5. When do you hang your decorations up? Usually we begin right after Thanksgiving...but it usually takes a few weeks to get everything together.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?  We always have hominey for Christmas dinner which I love!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? Waking up Christmas morning and getting all excited to go downstairs and open presents, then jumping in the car and heading to the beach!

8. What is on your Christmas wish list? iPad, iPhone 4Gs, big longchamp bag...

9. Do you open a gifts on Christmas Eve? We used to, haven't done it in a few years though...

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Just put any ornaments we want on, we're very casual and laid back in our house!

11. Snow? Love it or dread it? I love it, except that I always get worried we won't be able to make it to the beach if it snows too much!

12. Real tree or fake tree? Oh my gosh, DEFINITELY real tree...this year I have my own personal tree named Fifi!

Isn't she presch!!
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Hmm, when I was about 3 or 4 I got this horse that you rode back and forth, I loved it :)

14. What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you? Being with my family.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? My grandmother always makes a delicious chocolate mousse cake for Christmas dinner and I love peppermint bark and all of the yummy cookies...oh and fudge!!

16. What is your favorite tradition? I love reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, and I love going to the beach and spending the rest of the week with my whole extended family :)

17. What tops your tree? A cute star :)

18. Do you prefer giving or receiving? I love picking out good gifts for my family, we also do a white envelope every year and I love that too.

19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Joy to the World at the end of the midnight service.

20. Candy canes, yuck or yum? Mmm...they're ok.

21. Favorite Christmas movie? I love White Christmas, The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th street...oh there are so many good ones!!

22. What do you leave for Santa? Well I always try to leave cookies and milk but the rest of my family think it is stupid!

23. Do you have a Christmas morning tradition? We usually get up and all go into my parents room.  My dad checks to see if Santa came and then we go open our stockings.  Then we used to go into the family room where our big presents from Santa were (we might not be doing that this year).  My dad makes hot chocolate and waffles and then we open the presents under the tree.

24. Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall? Both, I like going into a few stores but I also do some shopping online.

25. Christmas letter or Christmas card? Definitely a card...we pride ourselves on our card in our family - this year we even did a YouTube to go along with it!  My mom sends 400 cards out and then the ones we get she puts all over the family room so we can see them, it's really fun!

Merry Christmas everyone, love to you all!
