1. What is your Favorite Christmas Movie?
Love, Actually & The Family Stone

2. What is your Least favorite Christmas Movie?
Jingle All The Way

3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Carol of The Bells & O Holy Night.

4. What Christmas song(s) drives you crazy?
Jingle Bell Rock.  I know almost everyone likes it; but for just grates my nerves.

5. What is your favorite Christmas Drink? (ie. egg nog, hot chocolate)
Mint hot chocolate!

6. What is your favorite Christmas Memory?
That would be the year we slid down the mountain.  When I was about 10, it was our year to be with my dad's family in New Mexico. My aunt wanted to combine our holiday with her in-laws, so we all were going up to their house in the mountains.  Well, my aunt's Subaru & the snow didn't go along with that plan.  We got about halfway up this really steep incline...and slid backwards all the way back down.  It never occured to me to be scared.

7. What is the best toy/gift you've received on Christmas?
The best gift I ever received was two years ago - an industrial Kitchen-Aid stand mixer.  I worship that thing!
 8. What is the worst toy/gift you've received on Christmas?
Oh, by far the worst is getting socks for Christmas....

9. What do you LOVE about the holidays?
Just about everything.  Christmas spirit, shopping, cards, and decorating.
 10. What annoys you about the holidays?
Seeing the same commercial over and over and over again.  If I wanted the product - I would have bought it the FIRST time I saw the commercial.

11. Do you prefer star or angel on top of a Christmas tree? Or something else?
I prefer angels.

12. What is your family favorite recipe at Christmas?
I have my favorite dishes... but because I like cooking so much, I tinker with them every time I make them.

13. Are you a Grinch or a Who at Christmastime?
Cindy Lou Who all the way!

14. Christmas light displays - Love them or Hate them?
LOVE THEM!  I adore driving around and finding all the tacky light displays.

15. Santa's at the mall - Fun times or Creepy?
I've seen a few creepy ones, but most of the time - fun!

16. Christmas cards - do you send them, yes or no?
Absolutely!  It's one of the few times I do snail mail.

17. What is the best thing about Christmas, in your opinion?
Giving everyone gifts.
 18. What is the worst thing about Christmas?
All the advertising.

19. When do you put the tree up and take it down?
It usually goes up the first week of December, and down a few days after Christmas.

20. Out of the 12 days of Christmas, which day and item would you want your truelove to give to you?
I'm a sucker for jewelry... Five golden rings.

Blizzard conditions and perhaps a little too much eggnog.

Yes, yes I do.

Cookies baking, candy canes and the smell of snow.
