About Me, About Christmas

I got this meme from Charmed Life.
  1. Egg nog or hot chocolate? Hot chocolate - YUMMY!
  2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa still wraps gifts, but there are a few elves that help him out from time to time. :-)
  3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White.
  4. Do you hang mistletoe? Yes.
  5. When do you put your decorations up? Thanksgiving Day, when I decorate (this is my 3rd year not decorating).
  6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Mac & Cheese, for sure!!
  7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? I don't really have one favorite memory. All of my favorite memories involve spending time with family & friends.
  8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I don't remember when I learned the truth about Santa, but I certainly remember the year my brother did. He found the bike Santa was giving him and then decided to be a little more nosey (finding all the gifts). He got in a lot of trouble.
  9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No.
  10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? It's a hodge podge of ornaments that I've collected over the years. My mom started a collection for me the year I was born & I got the collection when I moved out. She still gives me an ornament every year to add to it. I call my tree the "memory tree" because every ornament holds a special memory for me. ALL white lights, preferably, but mom usually convinces me to put a strand or two of colored in the mix. My tree is topped with a big bow with streamers!
  11. Snow - Love it or Dread it? As long as ice isn't involved and I can still get out & about, I'm loving it.
  12. Can you ice skate? I have, but I wouldn't define it as being able to.
  13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Actually, I remember a few.
  14. What’s the most exciting thing about the Holidays for you? Celebrating Jesus' birth. The time off from work. The music. The decorations. Spending extra time with family & friends.
  15. What is your favorite Holiday dessert? Fudge.
  16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Just spending time with friends & family. Mom & I throw a Christmas party every year & I really love sharing the time with them.
  17. What tops your tree? A big bow with streamers.
  18. Which do you prefer – giving or receiving? I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy receiving, but I absolutely love giving. I love shopping for others & trying to find the perfect gift. I enjoy participating in various charity projects where I'm able to give back to those who are less fortunate!
  19. What is your favorite Christmas song? I love Christmas music & it would be hard to pick just one favorite. So, here are a few that top my list: O Holy Night, Mary Did You Know, Christmas Shoes, Ave Maria and Grown Up Christmas List.
  20. Candy canes? Sure, why not!

Hi Jennier!
Oooh fudge, good choice!

You asked about my card collage.
I just used one of those frames that hold the 12 x 12 scrapbook page and cut the cards to fit. Very easy!

Merry Christmas,
