25 Questions: Holiday Style

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?  Hot Chocolate (or even better, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate!) 

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa ALWAYS wraps the presents. Even the small ones in the stockings.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? I love both. This year I like the white more, but I think colored lights are more fun and whimsical.   

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Negative.   

5. When do you hang your decorations up? Usually the first weekend in December.   

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?  Do crescent rolls count?

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? Probably having slumber parties with my sister, then waking my parents up super early to open presents.   

8. What is on your Christmas wish list? Absolutely nothing I need.   

9. Do you open a gifts on Christmas Eve? Usually just one small gift.   

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? All of our ornaments are sentimental, so we just put those up.    

11. Snow? Love it or dread it? LOVE IT! We've had virtually NO snow this year and I'm so bummed out!  

12. Real tree or fake tree? I prefer real trees, but I don't know that I trust my animals with one just yet. 

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? A Miracle Keyboard. Then I discovered I could play by ear, and learning how to play notes didn't seem to be a priority.    

14. What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you? Being with family. 

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? My Grandma-in-Law's Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. Best ever.  

16. What is your favorite tradition? Getting to my parents house and decorating the tree together, then watching Miracle on 34th Street with them on Christmas Eve.  

17. What tops your tree? More tree. I don't have a tree topper in my life yet.   

18. Do you prefer giving or receiving? Definitely giving. Would anyone actually write receiving? Just curious. 

19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Oh Holy Night  

20. Candy canes, yuck or yum? No thanks.   

21. Favorite Christmas movie? Miracle on 34th Street.  

22. What do you leave for Santa? Santa doesn't get anything anymore - my dogs would it eat. 

23. Do you have a Christmas morning tradition? These days, we get up, open gifts, then my mom makes amazing Eggs Benedict, which I don't like, so I make my own breakfast. Then we call our extended family and wish them a Merry Christmas. Even the Jewish members of my family.

24. Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall? Online is so much easier, but I still get most things in the store.

25. Christmas letter or Christmas card? Card. Some of the letters I've gotten over the years are just so depressing. I like to keep it short and sweet. 


  1. I did some questions close to these! Love your answers. Salted caramel hot chocolate...yummm.

  2. My mom always makes waffles and I don't like them so I end up making my own breakfast too. We are cool!
