My beloved Flea tagged (super tagged) me for the holiday meme! Since this is my early morning, cater the staff meeting day, I have just enough time to 'meme and tag' and then I'm out of here!
Egg Nog or hot chocolate? Egg nog all the way, Baby!
Does Santa wrap presents or set them under the tree? Santa's a big ol’ wrapper. Speaking of wrapping…sometimes he ran short of time and dropped the presents off for me to wrap. That’s how come the wrapping paper was the same as other gifts under the tree some years. That’s my story… I’m sticking to it!
Colored lights on tree or white? White. Totally. And they have to be chasers. If you don’t have a seizure looking at my tree, there’s something wrong.
When do you put your decorations up? First weekend in December. Or as soon as I digest the Thanksgiving turkey. Depends on how soon the festive spirit kicks in!
What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Christmas cookies aren’t really dessert are they? Fine. I usually make sweet poatoes with my ham… so sweet potatoes. Or ham…
Favorite Holiday memory as a child: Using the good china... when you're celebrating on a remote site, you bust out the good china on the holidays! And the snow. Tons of snow. Snow everywhere. We rarely get snow here for the holidays and I miss it.
When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Some schmuck on the playground decided to scar me for life. It didn’t work. I've figured out the truth on my own. Some of my best friends are elves!
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Never. Ever.
How do you decorate your Christmas tree? The vision is Victorian in shades of cream and gold. With blinding white flashing lights. Just sayin’….
Snow! Love it or Dread it? LOVE IT!!! The downside to living in Seattle is that if it snows the least bit, everything falls apart. Streets? Dangerous! Power? Out! Store shelves? Empty!
Can you ice skate? I certainly can! I can even skate backwards. My major winter sports accomplishment. Let's not talk about skiing!
Do you remember your favorite gift? Recently? I’d have to say my camera! Of all time? My easy bake oven!
What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Family (And feeding them)
What is your favorite HolidayDessert? Mmmm. Cookies!
What is your favorite tradition? Getting the house ready on Christmas Eve!
Which do you prefer, Giving or Receiving? Giving, of course! I’m all about watching people open gifts!
What is your favorite Christmas Song? Carol of the Bells? It's a marshmallow world? Mele Kalikimaka?
Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? Meh…
Ever recycled a Christmas present? Probably not… But I do recycle gift boxes!
And now for the tagging of seven people! Have fun! Can't wait to see your answers!
