This survey was originally two surveys. I first filled them out two years ago. This year, I am combining them and making a new survey.
Egg nog or hot chocolate?
Does Santa wrap your presents or leave them naked under the tree?
These days, he wraps or uses gift bags.
Do you hang mistletoe?
When do you put up your decorations?
Close to December, or in December. This year, I started on November 21.
Favorite holiday memory as a child?
One Christmas, a bunch of family members had come over in the evening to hang out and play and stuff. A bad snow storm hit and everyone was stranded. The cousins all got to cram into my and my sister’s bedrooms and we stayed up pretty late. That was the year I got the Lights Alive toy. Anyone remember that toy? Then another favorite was Aidan’s first Christmas–he came into the room, saw all the toys, smiled and clapped his little hands. It was adorable.
When did you learn the truth about Santa?
What, that he’s awesome? Gosh, I was a little girl.
How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Lights, then beads, then the other ornaments.
Snow: love it or hate it?
I’m not into snow so much.
Can you ice skate?
What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Being with loved ones.
What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Dutch apple pie. Gotta have the crumblies.
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Wow. Traditions change so much… but probably decorating everything and looking at all the other decorations. Watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas and the Christmas Story 24 hour marathon on TBS. Eating good food. Buying Christmas candy and mint M&Ms. Sending and receiving Christmas cards. Need I go on?
What tops your tree?
An angel. It’s been in my life for many years.
Which do you REALLY prefer: giving or receiving?
Candy canes: yummy or yucky?
I’m not a fan.

Both. Definitely both.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
A little bit.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?
…about that. LOL.
What do you look forward to most at Christmas?
Gifts and food, and time off from work. Seeing people I love. Getting cards. Pretty decorations. Oh, and light traffic.

How early do you wake up on Christmas morning?
I usually sleep in til about 9 or 10, but this year, we’ll have to get up pretty early–we have a flight to catch!

Yes. I hope Adam gets me one this year. *hint hint*
How many Christmas cards do you normally send out?
About 30ish, I suppose.
