Christmas Quiz


1. Eggnog or hot chocolate? 
Both!  Plus hot caramel apple cider... YUM!

 2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? 
Santa ALWAYS wrapped his presents at our house.  Even the teeny tiny stocking stuffer presents!

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
 Definitely white... on the tree and outside. 

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
 Not this year, but I would love to.  Just one more excuse to kiss my honey.

5. When do you put your decorations up? 
This year we were very naughty... I am ashamed to admit that we put them up last weekend :( Between moving, unpacking, work, grad school and a family emergency or two the last month has been CRAZY.  Next year I hope to start a new tradition of doing it the weekend after Thanksgiving.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
 I have a crazy sweet tooth.  I love all of the cookies, cakes, candies, brownies... I could go on and on!  I'm not going to lie... I love the ham and mashed potatoes too!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? 
I don't have one specific memory, but I loved the anticipation... making cookies, writing letters to Santa, making Christmas lists and so much more.  I could never fall asleep on Christmas Eve!  

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
 I think I was in 5th grade.  I was heartbroken but loved "keeping the secret" from all of my younger siblings.  My youngest brother is only ten and he still believes :)

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? 
Yes!  We always got to pick one to open.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
All of my ornaments have special meaning to me.  When I was little my parents gave us an ornament each year, then gave them to me when I got my first apartment.  Now Ryan and I buy an ornament every time we go on vacation.  We have them from Maine, Saratoga Springs, Cozumel and more.  I love looking at the tree and remembering all of these special times.  My mom also gave us one Christmas village house each year.  Now I have my own small village :)  

11. Snow! Love it or dread it? 
I LOVE the first snow, then after that I wish I could flee New England and move to Hawaii.  Shoveling is my least favorite thing in the whole wide world.

12. Can you ice skate?
No!  Isn't that pathetic for a girl from Maine?  It's on my bucket list.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? 
My Samantha American Girl Doll was my absolute favorite.  I also got a nightgown for her and a matching one for me.  LOVED IT!

14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Spending quality time with friends and family.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Pie, cookies, chocolate, candy.... I could never just pick one!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Waking up early, opening our stockings and then eating a very delicious breakfast.

17. What tops your tree? 
Sometimes a star, sometimes an angel.  It all depends on my mood that year.

18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?

Definitely giving.  I love finding that "perfect present" for someone.  Last year I got my dad Pub glasses with his name and birth year on them, plus some special Lobster themed beer.  He was tickled pink.
 
19. Candy canes: yuck or yum? 

Yum (in moderation).  I LOVEEEE peppermint bark though!

20. Favorite Christmas show?
Definitely Elf!  I also heart Love Actually and A Christmas Story.

21. Saddest Christmas song? 

I can't even think of a sad Christmas song.  Maybe "Christmas Song" by Dave Matthews?  I love that song, though!

22. What’s your favorite Christmas song? 

I love almost all of them, but if I had to pick just one it would be All I Want for Christmas is You by Miss Mariah.
