I love Christmas!

I found these questions on Toni's blog (Moved to the Mountains) and thought I'd post them here to share.

Colored lights or white lights on your house or not at all? No, can't get hubby to do it.

Hot chocolate or Egg Nog? Oh, both!

What's your favorite holiday dish? Tamales!

Does Santa wrap the presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa wraps them.

Do you hang mistletoe? No.

When do you put up your decorations? The weekend following Thanksgiving, or the weekend after that.

What's your favorite holiday tradition? I don't think I have one.

What's on the top of your tree? A beautiful lighted Angel.

Do you have a nativity displayed through the holidays? Yes - it's crystal.

Candy Canes, traditional or flavored? Or Chocolate Covered Cherries? Traditional candy canes. Don't like chocolate covered cherries, too sweet.

What's your favorite holiday goodie to make and share? Handmade cards and orange-cranberry bread. I love to make Banana Nut roll, but it's too time consuming.

What's your favorite Christmas song? I have so many, but I think my top 5 are: I Want a Hippotamus for Christmas, Jingle Bell Rock (Jimmy somebody), Feliz Navidad (Jose Feliciano), The Christmas Song (Nat King Cole), and a song by the Carpenters that I don't know what it's called. Oh! One more... Have a Holly Jolly Christmas (Burl Ives). Yes, I love the old ones!!!

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes, we open one gift.

Is there a special ornament or Christmas decoration that you wouldn't feel like Christmas without? Hmmm - I guess it would have to be the ornaments my sister has given me.

Do you take neighbor gifts/treats to anyone, everyone, a select few? A select few of neighbors.

Is your big meal on Christmas Eve, Christmas morning or Christmas afternoon? I guess Christmas afternoon. But what I would give to have one more Christmas morning at Grandma & Grandpa's house!

How do you decorate your tree? Hubby and the kids do it. I hand out the ornaments. And we listen to Nat King Cole.

Snow? Love it? Dread it? Tolerate it? Love it for the first one, tolerate it after that, dread the ice storms.

Do you remember a favorite gift? My most favorite gift was a blow dryer my sister gave me when I was young.

Do you have a family get-together during the holidays with extended family? Yes, my in-laws.

What's the most important thing that you must do each Christmas season? Drive around to see the "pretty lights."

Do you bake Christmas cookies? Sometimes.

Do you leave cookies and milk for Santa? Yes

Share a favorite Christmas memory. Going to Grandma & Grandpa's house. All the kids running around having a great time. Tons and tons of family all over the place and Grandma's cooking!

orange cranberry bread! yum!

LOL about the outside lights - if my hubby didn't put ours up, we wouldn't have any either :)

I hope you're having a great holiday season so far!
