It's the Eve!

Hi all!  I thought I'd do something a little different for this post- there's not a card or project coming- instead I thought I'd post this quiz that I saw over on Kellie Winnell's blog and share a little bit about myself with you all :)  I figured it's fitting since my one year anniversary of blogging came and went in late November (I was too busy with Christmas cards to even do a post!).  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays depending on what you celebrate.  Thanks for being with me on my journey over the past year and for welcoming me into the blogging world in style- can't wait to see what exciting stuff is to come in the new year!  Many hugs to you all :)
1. Egg nog or hot chocolate?  Neither- I'm kind of a coffee addict so that always wins out!
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?  Santa has always wrapped for us...
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?  White- they go with everything
4. Do you hang mistletoe?  Nope, wouldn't even know where to get some :)
5. When do you put your decorations up?  Well, this might shock some of you but I don't actually decorate!  Christmas is still celebrated with the family and they decorate enough for me...
6. What is your favorite holiday dish?  That's a hard one, but I'd have to say shrimp for Christmas dinner- it's the one time that my dad makes so much it truly is all you can eat!
7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?  Probably getting the movie E.T. and my parents hearing me and my sister crying 'E.T. died' as we watched it and running down to convince us to keep watching because he's not really dead.  We still laugh about it...
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?  To be honest I don't really remember...
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?  Yep, family tradition...we open one gift and it's always pj's but we're supposed to act like we don't know what it is or my mom gets upset- we never play along for long though because my sister and I agree it's way to much fun to irritate her
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?  No tree at my place- it'd probably never come down if I put it up- I'm terrible like that!
11. Snow!  Love it or dread it?  Love it!  It makes everything bright...
12. Can you ice skate?  Yep, used to do it on the pond in our neighborhood
13. Do you remember your favorite gift?  That's so hard!  My family are some of the best gift givers so it's always stuff I love...
14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you?  Definitely the time spent with family and friends
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?  Anything my mom makes!
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?  Christmas Eve- we always get coffee in the morning, then go to a movie and have dinner out- usually pizza because it's the only place consistently open on Christmas Eve, then we go back home and each read a Christmas story and open our one present- it's the best!
17. What tops your tree?  No tree :)
18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?  Definitely giving- I love knowing you got the perfect gift for someone...
19. Candy canes: yuck or yummy?  Love 'em!
20. Favorite Christmas show?  That's so hard cause I love them all...for classics I would say White Christmas...and non classics I would absolutely have to go with Elf!  "Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?"  I'm always tempted to answer my phone at work that way but I'm afraid I'll get in trouble :)
21. Saddest Christmas song? I'll Be Home for Christmas
22. What is your favorite Christmas song?  Baby It's Cold Outside- I like all the different versions but my two favorites would have to be the GLEE version and the version in Elf  :)
