A Meme for the Holidays

Holiday Meme I "borrowed" from Arleta's Blog (who borrowed it from Knotty Mouse).

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Hot Chocolate.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
Wrapped.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
Everything!

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
No, but I would love to make a proper 'kissing' ball one day with fresh mistletoe.

5. When do you put up your decorations?
Sometime after the 8th of December. Not sure why, must be an Irish thing???

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
Hmmmm, sherry trifle!

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
Me & my big brother (it was all his falut, honest!) were rooting around the house for Christmas presents. We found a HUGE scalextric set in the top cupboard of the wardrobe in the spare room. Mum said it was for my cousin, Alan, but it was actually for my brother!

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
What truth? He's real!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Only if I'm peeking. (Shush, don't tell anyone - especially Santa! 'cause he's watching you know!) Sometimes we give Little Miss CB a new Christmas book & we all read it together.

10. What kind of decorations are on your Christmas Tree?
A little bit of everything. I try to stick to a theme on each tree or room in the house but I fail miserably. Every year I buy a special ornament though.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread?
Love love love it!

12. Can you ice skate?
Nope - but I can roller skate. Does that count?

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
As a child - a Cindy caravan. As an adult, The Matrix Trilogy. Ooooh, Keanu!

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Mr CB being home with me and Little Miss CB.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
The same as my holiday Dish - sherry trifle!

16 What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Laying out food and drink for Santa & Rudolph on Christmas Eve. Santa gets a glass of Guinness or Whiskey and a mince pie. Rudolph gets a carrot, a packet of crisps and a bowl of water (the crisps were Little Miss CBs addition)!

17. What tops your tree?
An angel.

18. What is your favorite holiday book?
Kippers Christmas Eve or The Jolly Christmas Postman. Kids books, I know. But Christmas is all about the kids. :)

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
A Spanish one but I can't remember the name of it... hmm

20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yummy?
Yummy to the original ones. Yuck to those 'gourmet' ones that look like they're peppermint but taste of papaya and lemon - they freak me out!

A lot of fun to read. Regarding snow though, of course you love it, you ain't got to deal with it!
