A Holiday Quiz

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate--especially made with milk and some teeny marshmallows. Egg nog tastes nasty!!!
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? He wraps them in special "Santa" paper unless it is too big or awkward--think scooter with helmet.
3. White or Colored lights on tree/house? I like the colored lights because I love rainbows!
4. Do you hang mistletoe? No. That would take effort.
5. When do you put your decorations up? Whenever my husband pulls them out of the attic and decides to put it up. The kids think that that is his job! I put up the knick-knacks as soon as I get the boxes!
6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? stuffed celery
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: I remember Santa leaving a trail from the door to the stockings one year. The fireplace couldn't be used, so he came in the front door, but he dropped all sorts of stuff!
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I don't know how old I was, but we caught Poppa building the Barbie RV! We didn't say anything till the next morning, of course, because we did want it put together!
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes. My husband's family opens all family gifts on Christmas Eve, then we do Santa on Christmas morning.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? It is a hodge-podge! The kids have made lots of things and we just put it all up. I have other ideas, but since I don't live by myself, I will try to get over it!

Wasn't the Barbie RV the coolest!?

I "inherited" one from my cousins, and it was the best toy ever!!! Lots of road trips for Barbie and her many clones!!!
