Tagged by Dawn, now its your turn please.
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
I'm not really a lover of either although I suppose at Christmas, when I am in the spirit of things I'd prefer egg nog (provided it was spiked :).
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
He wraps them of course!
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
I love either or, but for my own house I choose white lights.
4. Do you hang mistletoe?
5. When do you put your decorations up?
Second weekend in December.
6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
Christmas Dinner of course - the whole lot.
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: My sisters coming to wake me up to look at ALL the beautiful presents under the tree and then waiting for Dad to hand tell us which pile belonged to who. You know, the anticipation on everyone's faces :)
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I suppose after the age of 9/10 I really knew what was what, however I was always torn when mom started asking me to help her wrap the presents when I got to about 12/13 - even though I was pleased she thought I was grown up enough, I hated to admit to the truth of it all.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
With a lot of indecision - same as I do most things :) (Last year it was eventually with a silver/white/and black theme :)
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Love (and miss it) now that I don't have to shovel/drive in it :)

Yes I can 'ice' skate - what other way is there?

From Childhood - my cabbage patch doll Rena Evangelene.
14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
The feeling of togetherness.
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BALLS.
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
From a long time ago? When we used to go to Mass on Christmas Eve and then on to Nanny's. I miss that.
From home - Dad's party plate of food.
Now - (this hasn't happened yet ;) going out to pick out my first real tree with my husband, and let me tell you - they cost a TON here comapared to NS.
17. What tops your tree?
An angel (I think).
18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? I do love buying a gift for someone when I'm sure it will mean a lot to them, especially when I watch them open it. But I can't deny I love opening presents too :)

Oh Holy Night followed by Good King Wenceslas
20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum?
I'm not particular about hard candy - but I love candy cane ice-cream.
21. Favorite Christmas movie?
Love Actually and Elf
22. What do you leave for Santa?
Growing up - cookies and milk.
Because I hate having a fridge that is only slightly bigger than the BOoZe Fridge back home...
Not to mention that at the moment we have the extra room in our tiny kitchen as Molly has completely eaten our kitchen table (and four chairs) so why not take the opportunity and buy a nice, big appliance that Molly cannot demolish? This particular fridge is on sale and as its only slightly more expensive than a fridge with an on top freezer, Andy and I are seriously considering it.
