Christmas Survey

I was tagged by Eileen over at Coming Up Roses to do a Christmas meme, and saw another one on Melanie's site, so I was a rebel. I combined them both! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE the holiday season?

Have you been naughty or nice this year? I walk a fine line between the two

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate, preferably with peppermint schnapps

What do you want most for Christmas? I'm going to be selfish and say a KitchenAid mixer

Do you believe in Santa? I believe the spirit of Santa lives in all of us

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Most of them are wrapped.

What is your favorite food at Christmas? Food? There should be food not just desserts?

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Yes and FINISHED! Which is historic if you know me. I'm usually the one shopping on Christmas Eve with a bunch of last minute men.

Colored lights on tree or white lights? Either/or. This year ours has colored lights.

What is your favorite Christmas song? Happy Christmas by John Lennon, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Silver Bells, I have way too many

What is your favorite Christmas movie? A Christmas Story with Ralphy and How the Grinch Stole Christmas

What is your favorite memory of Christmas? Christmas Eve as a child at my great grandma's (Woohoo I can make that one a whole post!)

What do you look forward to most at Christmas? Seeing my friends and just being together with my family.

What are you doing for Christmas this year? I spend Christmas Eve at the grandparents, Christmas day at the house and usually go to my friends in the evening.

What kind of Christmas tree do you have? Artificial, I miss the live tree but the artificial can be left up a lot longer.

What tops your Christmas tree? An angel that we have had since I was a child.

Do you take part in a secret Santa? Not this year

Do you go to any Christmas parties? Friend parties yes, work parties I tend to avoid like the plague.

Candy Canes-yum or yuck? Yum!

Have you ever had a white Christmas? All the time

Do you own a Santa hat? There is probably one around somewhere.

Do you still get a stocking? Yes, my mom made me a needle point one when I was a baby and it still gets used to this day.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? We have a calendar that counts down the days till Christmas. Every year its get hung on the closet door outside of our bedrooms and we still move the little mouse to countdown to the 25th, even though neither of us will admit to doing it because you know, we're adults now.

What is your Christmas wish? Peace on earth, good will toward men (and a KitchenAid mixer) :0)

I would love to hear about Christmas at Great-Grandma's house!!! That is awesome that you have the stocking Big T made for you!!!! And, I love the calendar!

Auburn Kat said...

Our Christmas party for work is tonight. I'm hoping it should be fun! Granted, I don't really plan on drinking because...well, I don't want to make a fool out of myself!

I really need to use my mixer again! Someday you will get it!

Little Fish said...

We're going to need to go to AK's place in NY and steal that mixer! Sorry AK...

Now, about How the Grinch Stole Christmas... please tell me that you're talking about the original animated version! I have never forgiven Jim Carey for remaking it and I refuse to see it. The original is perfection, why mess with it?

Mandy said...

kcmom--post about great grandmas in the next days.

Auburn Kat-- Have fun at your Christmas party tonight! My co-workers are a lot older than I am so work social functions tend to be awkward. When it comes to a mixer I won't settle for anything less, I am hoping to have it soon! :-)

Little Fish -- AK and I actually decided we needed a KitchenAid around the same time. I wouldnt want to steal hers but I am all up for a roadtrip to watch her make some cookies. :0) And yes, I do mean the original version of the Grinch.

jamie said...

AK--my xmas party for work is tongiht, too! I, however, plan on drinking and hopefully not making a fool out of myself.

Mandy, maybe I will bring a flask of peppermint and make them all think I'm just drinking hot chocolate and the idiocy is just natural...

Andy said...

Meme this? You bet.

Bayjb said...

Awesome meme. I love the holidays! I am hoping Santa will bring me a new set of kitchen knives and a back-up hard drive for lulu :)

Maxie said...

I'm a big fan of hot chocolate. I'm taking a box in for work tomorrow so I can drink it to cheer me up.

Mandy said...

jamie--the flask is a great idea, did it work?

Andy-- I knew I could count on you! :-)

Babyjb--backup drives are incredibly important. I learned that the hard way a few years ago with my desktop.

Maxie--ohhh sounds good--don't forget the fluff!
