Day 22 of Birthday Month

I straight up jacked this from Krysten (and pretty much stole her layout for it as well), play along too, if you'd like:

1. egg nog or hot chocolate?
Hot Chocolate - I actually just asked Steve last night if he likes egg nog and what it tastes like; I've never had it.

2. does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa wraps them!

3. multi-colored or white lights on tree/house?
Solid Colored.  White is great, but I love when homes are lit up with just one solid color - red, green, blue, etc.

4. do you hang mistletoe? 
I haven't, I wanted to this year, but never got around to it.

5. when do you put up decorations?
This year Steve and I had all our stuff up before Thanksgiving.  I think I was just so excited to celebrate Christmas living with Steve... I couldn't wait any longer.

6. what is your favorite holiday dish?
I like all the snacky stuff

7. favorite holiday memory as a child.
Always coming home from our Christmas Eve celebration and seeing that Santa had already been to our house.

8. when did you learn the truth about Santa?
I'm not sure how old I was, but I think my mom got lazy one year and wrapped Santa's gifts in the same paper my parents used.  Not only that, but Santa's handwriting looked an awful lot like my mom's as well...  they tried to play it off, but it didn't work

9. do you open a gift on Christmas eve?
As kids we always did.  This year, Steve and I are going to do our gifts on Christmas Eve and do our stockings on Christmas morning.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
White lights, candy canes, ornaments.

11. Snow! Love it or dread it? 
I don't mind snow - I don't like snow when it comes between me and my travel.  I dislike the cold more than I dislike the snow.

12. Can you ice skate?
last time I tried, I could.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
Last year, Steve got me a diamond heart necklace - I've worn it almost everyday since.

14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Family.  I was thinking last night about how I really don't care about anything as far as gifts go, I just want my family together.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Melting Moments cookies

16. what is your favorite holiday tradition?
I love going to my brother and SIL's house on Christmas morning and doing our little family thing.  We do gifts and brunch.  I love my family.

17. what tops your tree?

An Angel

18. which do you prefer: giving or receiving?
I love both!  I always find myself wanting to spend a shit ton of money on people (I usually always go over spending limits)

19. candy canes. yucky or yummy?
I like the cherry flavored ones.  On a related note: Sour Patch Candy Canes are NOT good.

20. favorite Christmas show?

21. saddest Christmas song?
Blue Christmas

22. favorite Christmas song?
Baby, It's Cold Outside, White Christmas, Jingle Bells as sung by my niece, Jordan.

Aww great post! I'm gonna copy :)

Santa never wraps our presents. We have wrapped presents under the tree from siblings and my parents, but our Santa gifts are always out in the open.
