a christmas tag

In honor of it being one {ONE?!} week until Christmas, I'd thought I'd to a little Christmas tag. But really, it's just an excuse to do yet another tag. I'm sorta addicted to them. Casey did it as well so I know it's pretty cool ;)
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate & popcorn is my favorite nighttime snack. Not ever lying when I say I'll have it days in a row. 
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wraps them...although this year Santa ::cough cough Mama & Dad cough cough:: is getting behind in setting out the presents.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White. Traditional all the way.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? I've always wanted to but never have. Mostly, it's because just so darn high up in the trees & heights are not my friend.

5. When do you put your decorations up? I make myself wait until after Thanksgiving, but this year we were a little late getting everything up. 

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Tough question...I'd have to say green bean casserole. I'll totally addicted to the fried onions.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Again, tough question. A couple that stand out in my mind are my little bro getting a fire truck bed {he was REALLY into fire trucks that year} and reading two or three books in bed one Christmas morning waiting for everyone to get up.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My parents never "did" Santa...plus it wasn't hard to figure out; my parents didn't hide the fact they were Christmas shopping for us.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Every year since I can remember...and it's always PJ's.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? It's not a themed tree by any means. Just full of our yearly ornaments with regular ol' lights.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? LOVE IT! Sorry, all capitals had to be used. It's my favorite weather type after all. 

12. Can you ice skate? I absolutely love it, but I can't say I'm amazing. At least I don't fall down a lot.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Probably Just Dance 2. So many memories playing that game!

14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Remembering that it's not about ME, but about Jesus. Without him, we would be nothing...and there would be no Christmas at all. Harsh, but true.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Crockpot candy. Recipe coming!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?  Opening up the pajamas, of course! 

17. What tops your tree? A gold star that my mom spray painted YEARS ago. This year we intertwined lights inside it as well...looks amazing!

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? While I love receiving {I mean, who doesn't?!}, getting the perfect gift for someone & seeing their face light up makes me oh so happy.

19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? YUCK! Can't stand peppermint/mint. It's a wonder I can stand brushing my teeth.

20. Favorite Christmas show? Confession: I'm not into the holiday movies. We're going to watch It's a Wonderful Life for sure!
21. Saddest Christmas Song? Mary, Did You Know or You're Here. Total tear-jerkers.

22. What is your favorite Christmas song? Amazingly, You're Here. I'm a sap for sure!

Merry one-week-til-Christmas, readers!
