25 Questions: Holiday Style
  • Eggnog or hot chocolate?  
         Hot Chocolate with marshmallows  or even a splash of Kahlua

  • Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? 
          What is the fun of presents if you can't unwrap them?

  • Colored lights on tree/house or white?
      I think white lights are really pretty but we have colored because the kids love them 
  • When do you hang your decorations up?
       Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving and they always come down the week after Christmas because my birthday is New Years and my mom always wanted to differentiate between the two occasions.
  • What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
       All the appetizers! Yummy 
  • Favorite holiday memory as a child?
     Driving around neighborhoods and looking at lights 
  • What is on your Christmas wish list?
       New perfume, a new kindle, Starbucks cards and strangely enough, new socks!
  • Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve?
     We usually open a few with stepfather's family
  • How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
     We used to have a themed tree and still kind of do, but now we have lots of home made ornaments from the kids and I love it!
  •   Snow? Love it or dread it? 
A little bit of both. I love looking at it and playing in it but hate driving in it.
  • Do you remember your favorite gift?
     Nothing really sticks out in my mind from childhood. I guess most recently the first year hubby and I were married he bought me a pear shaped diamond ring because he knew I really liked the pear shaped diamonds. :)

  • What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you?
   Time with family and seeing the joy on my kids' faces. 
Christmas last year!
  • What is your favorite holiday dessert? 
     I love cherry pie and anything cheesecake!
  • What is your favorite tradition?
  Almost too many to name. I loved driving around looking at lights with my parents when I was younger. Now, I am loving coming up with new traditions with my kids like making home made ornaments.  
  • What tops your tree?
    • A giant snowflake

    • Do you prefer giving or receiving?
          I love giving gifts! Especially when you know you found something that they have been wanting.

 They are one of those take it or leave it candies for me.

  • What do you leave for Santa?
  When we were kids I think we left cookies.... haven't done that yet with my kids. I think we need to start this year.
  • Do you have a Christmas morning tradition?
  Our traditions have all changed a bit now that we have our own family..... but we open up gifts here together and then head to my in laws and then down to my hubby's aunt's and uncle's for breakfast.
      • Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall?
      I have done a bit of both
      • Christmas letter or Christmas card?
      I like Christmas cards with Christmas letters in them!
