Christmas quiz by a grinch...


(Disclaimer: After going through these questions, I have realized I am a grinch who does nothing to get in the holiday spirit. Also, note to my future children: I apologize in advance for bringing you into this world with a mother who does nothing to make Christmas exciting for you. I'll try to work on that before you get here. But let's just say, I hope your future father cares a whole lot more about these things than I do.)

1. Egg nog or hot chocolate? Definitely hot chocolate. I've never been a fan of Egg Nog...something about its milky, frothy consistency.. (ahem) moving on.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? If I had a tree. They would be wrapped. Though, if you remember from this post, wrapping is not my forte. I mean...Santa's forte.
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Again, if I had a house or tree to put lights on...I guess they would have to be white. I lied. If I had a house or tree, I'd probably be too lazy to do either and it would be a sad and bare sight sans lights. 
4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope. Roomie and I just kiss when we feel like it. No mistletoe necessary.
5. When do you put your decorations up? What decorations?
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Do mashed potatoes count?
7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? This question was left for last, and I'm still not sure how to answer this. (Mom - don't be sad that I can't think of a holiday memory that sticks out to me as a favorite. You know how horrible my memory is and I'm sure they were all wonderful?)
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My parents never taught us to believe in Santa. I guess this explains where my "Grinchism" came from. I would always try and explain to my little friends how illogical they sounded that they thought this big white fat man in red could come down every single person's chimney in one night. Apparently, they didn't want to hear it.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Growing up, yes.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? See question #3's answer.
11. Snow! Love it or dread it? Let's just say, I appreciate living in San Diego where it's sunny and snow-free. Though, last year's Christmas was spent in Georgia and it snowed. I'm not going to lie...I was pretty excited to experience my first "White Christmas."
12. Can you ice skate? Um. I'm pretty sure, for my 10th birthday party, it was spent at the Escondido IcoPlex. I even wore a pink ballet skirt with a black leotard (bc obvi that's what professional ice-skaters wear).
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Favorite? No. But one year, did I want a bright blue electric guitar, complete with an amp, in hopes to further my musical talents? Yes. Did I get it? You know it. Did I become a famous musician? .......Let's move on.
14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you? Two things and two things only: My family and my Amazon Wish List.
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? Apparently every single thing that's on the food table at work. See here.
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? I don't have one yet, but I'd like to think that as I get older and start a family one day, I can begin to make them!
17. What tops your tree? See question #3's answer.
18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving? Giving. Shocker, I know. But it's quite fun shopping for people. Don't get me wrong though, if you ever feel inclined to check out my AWL, I wouldn't stop you.
19. Candy canes: yuck or yummy? Yummy.
20. Favorite Christmas movie? Love Actually and Christmas Vacation.
21. Saddest Christmas song? According to Google, the #1 saddest x-mas song is: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Aaannddd come to think of it, I would have to agree.
22. What is your favorite Christmas song? Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas." Duh.

Happy Wednesday!
I fly to Georgia TONIGHT to see my mamma, brother, nephew, and soon-to-be SIL!
