Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love all the lights, finding the perfect presents for my family and friends, and all the Christmas carols being sung. I just love this time of year. So I am linking up with Michelle at Fabulous in First for her Christmas questionnaire linky party.
Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
I love hot chocolate! I enjoy it throughout the winter months.
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?
Santa always wraps the presents unless they're just too big to wrap, otherwise he'll just put them under the Christmas tree.
Colored lights or white?
I love the shine of the white lights.
When do you decorate?
As a child, we always decorated the Friday that school got out for vacation. My mom was a teacher so it was hard to decorate before school got out. Now we decorate as soon as we can. Usually we decorate right after Thanksgiving.
Real or Fake Tree?
As a child we always had a real tree. My dad used to own a garden supply company so he would have nothing else. This was also another reason we always decorated once school was out; the tree stayed fresh longer. Now that I am married, we have a fake tree. We travel a lot during my vacations so it is easier to have a fake tree. But I sure do miss the smell of the real tree.
What Tops Your Tree?
As a kid we always had an angel on top of the tree. Now my husband has a Disney Christmas hat that he likes to put on the top.
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
My family would always watch the Christmas special on PBS at the Dorthy Chandler Pavilion on Christmas Eve. Sometimes we'd watch on TV and sometimes we would go downtown and watch it live. Then we would go out and celebrate my grandfather's birthday.
Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
My favorite gift was definitely my first pair of figure skates. I was so excited when I opened that present.
Do prefer giving or receiving?
For sure I love giving gifts. It is so much fun finding the perfect gift for someone.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
I love the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from the movie "Meet Me in St. Louis."
Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
I like candy canes but I will not seek them out.
Favorite Christmas Movie?
I love the movie "Miracle on 34th Street." It is not Christmas until I have watched this movie.
Do you shop online or at stores?
I do both. I buy things online and I buy things at the stores.
Photo Cards, Letter or Store Bought Card?
We do photo cards. I love receiving photo cards from our friends and family as well and seeing the adventures they had in the last year.
Thank you for reading about my Christmas traditions. If you love Christmas be sure to go link up with Michelle.
