Here is a cute holiday survey that I found on Knitting Iris:
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I love both, but Hot Chocolate I can drink anytime I feel cold, but I love me some egg nog during the holidays.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? Growing up, wrapped. I think when I start my own traditions, I
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Well growing up they were always colored. This year my own tree is colored because the lights were free. But I may have to change next year to all white lights. My mom got a new tree this year and all the lights are white and I like that better because you can see the ornaments better.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? No, though it would be fun!
5. When do you put your decorations up? Sometime during the weekend after Thanks
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Well I can't choose, I adore food. Probably cookies, all kinds. Amber's Molasses cookies.
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Well I remember when my sister and I would lay in bed with my Mom and could not go to sleep, we were just too excited to see Santa. So we would close our eyes just to pretend to be asleep, but then we would actually fall asleep.
8 . When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My parents used the same wrapping paper for
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes. Always.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Well beggars can't be choosers. This is my first year having my own tree and all I have are hand me down colored lights and no ornaments (my cats like 5 of them before I just took them down). I think next year (if I have more money) I will make some of my own and use white lights.
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? I dream about having a white Christmas, but I don't know if I could handle it. I don't have any memory of being somewhere while it was snowing. I have been in snow, after it is on the ground but never seen it snowing. I live in Phoenix, Arizona.
12. Can you ice skate? Yes, but I have only been twice at a skating rink
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Not really.
14. What's your favorite thing(s) about the holidays? Sitting in front of the fire, listening to Christmas music, being with my friends and family.
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? Cookies
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Decorating the tree with my mom.
17. What tops your tree? A hand me down Angel from my mom (not a keepsake), but I think I will change to a star next year.
18. Which do you prefer, giving or receiving? I like giving. One thing I don't like about the Holidays in my family is that my parents ask me what specifically I want. So then when I get it on Christmas day it is not a surprise. I wish we could all get to know each other better so that they would know me well enough to know what to get me. I like gifts better when there is love and though put into them.
19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Last Christmas-Wham or Baby, It's cold outside or The Christmas Song, or....ok, pretty much all of them.
20. What is your favorite holiday book? I don't think I have one. Just another tradition I will have to start when I have kids.
21. Candy canes yuck or yum? They are yummy but I can only have like one a season, or I get sick of them.
