Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Hot chocolate. Oh so yummy.
Does Santa wrap presents or set them under the tree?
Santa wraps 'em and sets them under that tree.
Colored lights on tree or white?
White as I am a big fan of a classy looking Christmas tree.
When do you put your decorations up?
On the first Advent. The fourth Sunday before December 25th.
What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
Dumplings, duck and red cabbage. As traditional as Turkey for Thanksgiving.
Favorite Holiday memory as a child:
I have a few…for some reason the first Christmas we spent at our log house stands out.
When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I actually can't remember exactly when it was but my interest in where the presents came from just faded and I could tell from the look on my parent's face that they were "Santa"
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
We open all of our gifts on Christmas Eve as we celebrate Christmas on the evening of the 24th of December in Germany
Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Love it! Love it! Love it! To this day I am still dreaming about jumping from our third story window into a humongous pile of snow.
Can you ice skate?
Yes, yes and yes and I love it. Did I ever mention that I wanted to become a figure skater? We didn't have a skating rink though, which sucked so I ran about in my grandma's garden, in the snow with my best friend, pretending we were Katarina Witt and Debbie Thomas :)
Do you remember your favorite gift?
There were so many that I can't possibly name just one.
What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
spending time with my loved ones.
What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
As I am not a big fan of dessert I trade it for one more dumpling with duck and sauce etc.
What is your favorite tradition?
Christmas Dinner with the family, carols playing in the background. Gosh I ♥ it.
Which do you prefer, Giving or Receiving?
Both. Maybe I like to give a teeny tiny tad more than I like receiving a gift just because seeing someone's face light up makes my day.
What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues....My all time favorite
Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum?
Yuck, spit, barf.
Ever recycled a Christmas present?
Never. Simply because I never got anything that I didn't like. I know I am blessed :)
