Christmas Survey :)

 I do like a good survey every now and, here goes! :)

25 Questions: Holiday Style
  • Eggnog or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate for eggnog for this girl.
  • Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
No wrapping, come on! He sets them up just like they came out of the little elves workshop :)
  • Colored lights on tree/house or white?
I'm an all white girl!
  • Do you hang mistletoe?
Nope. I guess we never have...but we should!
  • When do you hang your decorations up?
Usually right after Thanksgiving. They don't start selling real trees until black Friday around here.
  • What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
Since I've been in Austin's family...crab dip casserole on Christmas eve! mmmmm!
  • Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Always begging my parents to please let me open just one gift on Christmas Eve. They always gave in. ;)
  • What is on your Christmas wish list?
Nothing too exciting, clothes, boots, jewels, things for the house...
  • Do you open gifts on Christmas or Christmas Eve?
Always on Christmas day, until this year! This year we get both...Christmas eve presents with my family and Christmas day presents with Austin's family. I am feeling very fortunate at how it all worked out this year. Oh, and the fact that I don't have to spend Christmas in a hospital...that is exciting this year too!
  • How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
This year we did white lights and lots of red/green/silver/gold balls tied in a trio of 3, then glittery and whimsical ornaments of the same colors. We throw a few of our childhood ornaments and sentimental ones in there too...and a really big bow to top!
  • Snow? Love it or dread it?
Dread it, pretty much from the get-go. I guess living in Nebraska all those years really made me hate snow. I do get kind of excited for the hubs sake, because he absolutely adores it!
  • Real tree or fake tree?
Real...Austin won this battle 3 years in a row, and I guess I'm kind of glad. :)
  • Do you remember your favorite gift?
Ever? This is kind of a hard question...
  • What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you?
Being with our families, of course. I can't wait to start our own little family and traditions. Exciting!!
  • What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Man, I do love it all. I just love cakes, pretty much any cake. And cookies, good ol' chocolate chip. I am a huge fan of these new cake balls my sister-in-law introduced me too, and Oreo balls...
  • What is your favorite tradition?
I guess we don't follow many traditions I am exciting to start our own. It's hard because we are always switching  between families, plus for the past several years I've been working on Christmas. (gag)
  • What tops your tree?
A big bow made by yours truly!
  • Do you prefer giving or receiving?
Both :) Well, maybe giving. I definitely get more excitment out of watching people open the gifts we give them rather than opening my own. I get ridiculously excited to give Austin his gifts each year!! Maybe it's because I'm such an amazing gift giver and I can't wait to see his happy face?! haha, I kid, I kid.
  • What is your favorite Christmas song?
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer!!
  • Candy canes, yuck or yum?
I could live with or without them...
  • Favorite Christmas movie?
Christmas Vacation...forever and always!
  • What do you leave for Santa?
Nothing anymore...but soon we will be again!!
  • Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall?
on-line! hello, cyder Monday. I'd say I do about 75% online and the other in the stores...
  • Christmas letter or Christmas card?
We send Christmas cards but I love to read Christmas letters. I think one of the most fun things about December is receiving Christmas cards!
