Christmas Fun!

As much as I like to pretend my blog is devoted to mature intellectual reflection and soul-penetrating wisdom, my truest self cannot deny that I am nerd. I am a nerd who loves Christmas. I am a nerd who loves Christmas internet memes.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? As much as I love me some good ol' Nog, there's nothing like a cup of Hot Chocolate after a day spent playing in the snow.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa (and his elves!) totally wrap the presents.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? I'm a sucker for pretty white lights.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope.
5. When do you put your decorations up? As soon as Halloween is over, it's fair game in my book.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Thumbprint cookies. A Christmas tradition in our house.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? To be honest, my memory of childhood Christmases is pretty foggy. But every year my sister and I have opened up our stockings together in bed on Christmas morning. I'm going to cry when the time comes when we can't anymore.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I stumbled upon his present's hidden in our garage...when I was 13. My Mom was an AWESOME Santa Claus!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? I think we have, but it's not an annual tradition.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? With what I have. I'm broke so I use what I've got. Last year, I made a popcorn & cranberry garland with my food stamps. We'll see what poor grad student inspiration I get this year!

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Snow up until Christmas day is splendid. It's not Christmas without beautiful, shimmering, white snow. After Christmas? I could do without!

12. Can you ice skate? Can I? Yes. Well? No.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? My Dad got me a guitar when I was probably 7 or 8. I flipped shit.

14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Just being with family. Doesn't get better than that.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? My Mom has soo many good Christmas cookie recipes. It's a toss up between Thumbprint cookies and her Rum balls!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Opening up stockings with Kelly Christmas morning. Always will be.

17. What tops your tree? Grew up with an angel. I have a star. I really don't have a preference.

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Giving of course!

19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? Can't really eat them by themselves, but heck yes in cookies or hot chocolate! 

20. Favorite Christmas show? I love all the old Christmas classics. 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family is BOMB.

21. Saddest Christmas Song? I'll Be Home for Christmas. 

22. What is your favorite Christmas song? I don't know that I have a favorite, I love it all! But Christmas/Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans-Siberian Orchestra is definitely up there. My mom, sister and I saw them in concert one year and they were insane. They went from Christmas classics to a Metallica cover. So awesome!

This was so much fun! 

Thanks to:


  1. Ooo I love Trans-Siberian Orchestra! Good choice!

  2. I just saw this survey on someone elses blog! I think it is such a great holiday themed one! I used to watch all those 25 days of Christmas movies on ABC family, they were great! Now I unfortunately don't have cable. But, i did manage to watch Elf yesterday!
