Question 1: What is your favorite thing about Christmas?Presents, of course! Oh, wait, is that where I'm supposed to say, "The time spent with my beloved family" ?
Question 2: When you were a kid, what did you leave for Santa on Christmas Eve?I think we did cookies, maybe, but not every year...
Question 3: Do you and/or your family have any Christmas traditions?We watch a lot of Christmas movies (as you can see from other blog posts of mine). We also open our presents on Christmas Eve, which I always thought was a great tradition. On the other hand, we eat coffee cake for breakfast Christmas morning, which takes forever to make, so that is one tradition that I don't love.
Question 4: When decorating do you go all out or just do a small amount of decorating?In my own apartment, I simply have a tiny fake tree on my window sill (see picture below), which can hold about six ornaments without falling over. I also put out all of the Christmas cards I get from friends. But that's about it. My parents, on the other hand, go crazy with decorations! But they've had more years to collect stuff, so that's not really fair.
Question 5: What is your favorite Christmas dinner food?Just like Thanksgiving, the food really isn't that big of a deal. Read my Thanksgiving Rant here.
Question 6: What is your favorite Christmas movie?How can I just pick one?! I guess I have to go with Love Actually, but honestly, there are SO many!
Question 7: What is your favorite Christmas song?I LOVE Mariah Carey's version of "All I Want for Christmas is You". Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby" is a close second; she has such a sexy voice!
Question 8: What was your favorite gift you've ever received?There are so many! But I'm getting Lasik eye surgery this year, which is a pretty freakin' awesome present, so that has to be it.
Question 9: What is your favorite Christmas memory?I remember one year my parents got me a Barbie camper/van, and they had set up the van with the picnic table outside of it with one of my Ken dolls hanging out enjoying himself in the "outdoors" under the Christmas tree. I thought that was so fun!
Question 10: Does it snow where you live?Yes, but we don't usually get a "white Christmas."
Question 11: Do you own an "ugly holiday sweater"?I just bought a moose sweater from Urban Outfitters, but I think it's cute, not ugly! Granted, I would never wear it with a mustard yellow skirt. Ew.
Question 12: Hot chocolate or eggnog?I like both, but I can only enjoy eggnog this time of year, so I'll go with that. And I don't mix it with anything (no alcohol, and no milk to dilute it). It's delicious just as it is!
Question 13: Have you ever been kissed under a mistletoe?Not yet. But I do have one of those headbands with mistletoe hanging from it...I just have never worn it...
There you go! Why not answer the list yourself?
