“The main reason anta is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live” – George Carlin
Ahhhh! I forgot about blogmas! Jamie and I have a busy day tomorrow, we are babysitting my little cousins, so I was hoping to go to sleep early!! Then, it hit me!! But I didnt really do too much today to talk about. SO I found a Christmas tag to fill out! here we go!!
Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? well, I am lactose intolerant so it has to be worth it for me to have either. I lied, I hate egg nog, but I am lactose, so it better be a good damn cup of hot chocolate. I like it with steeped milk, I hate it with water – its too thin so only once in awhile. I actually made a cup last week with a spoonful of peanut butter melted in it! Amazing.
Coloured lights on tree/house or white? WHITE. Classy, simple and elegant. Hated Coloured
Do you hang mistletoe? No.
When do you put your decorations up? Too late. I love christmas, I would have decorations up all year. But instead, usually the week before the American Thanksgiving.
What is your favorite holiday dish? I find this difficult. My mom is not one to save food just for holidays. I love squash and sweet potato but we have that year round. With that being said I don’t really have one..
Favourite Holiday memory as a child? I honestly dont have one. My mom always did a fantastic job at making the holidays really special and memorable I do not have one that really stands out. They were all really good. I do have a few laughable moments though, like one year I got a gift that was from “mom and dad” and my dad asked me what it was.
When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I dont think it was ever really answered. I think logic took over. However, I was around 11 and my sister was 8, I found all the presents from Santa and sent Cristina in to see them, they all said “from santa”. I was evil.
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? We were never allowed. Although we did convince them once or twice to let us. Jamie and I try really hard to do both families for every holiday. We are generally really rushed so for the past 2 years we did our little christmas on Christmas eve.
How do you decorate your Christmas tree? I like to take my time and organize the ornaments by colour. I start with one colour to make sure it is all balanced before moving to the next colour. Smaller ornaments on top, larger on the bottom.
Snow! Love it or Dread it? loathe it.
Do you remember your favourite gift? I get a new favourite each year. Although a few “gag” gifts turn out I love the most – for example my pink snuggie!
