Holiday Meme

1. Eggnog or Hot Chocolate? Eggnog, definitely eggnog. My 6-year-old really enjoys it, too, and likes to drink eggnog with her dad. Or she likes to drink her dad’s eggnog … something like that.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? Just puts them under the tree. But for some weird reason, he thinks his elves have to assemble it, in the loving room floor at 1 or 2 in the morning so that it is fully assembled when the child wakes up. Annoying little elves.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? I used to say white, but that’s all anybody does anymore, so I’m going with colored. But it has to be a solid color like all red or all blue. Multicolored lights are still ugly.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? No!

5. When do you put your decorations up? Whenever we get around to it.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? All of them. I even like green bean casserole. Basically, I like to eat during the holidays and it really doesn’t matter if we are having the traditional turkey and dressing or enchiladas, it’s all good.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? As I have mentioned before in these meme’s I have long since forgotten my childhood. It must have been traumatic.

8. When or how did you learn the truth about Santa? Never believed in Santa. I told you it was traumatic.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Sometimes yes, Sometimes no

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Let the kid do it. This year it is decorated, but all the ornaments are on one side. But, hey, I didn’t have to do it.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it. It makes things more interesting.

12. Can you ice skate? Sure … maybe … I would like to think that I can if I ever tried.

13. Have you ever fallen on the ice? What kind of stupid question is this? Show me someone who hasn’t fallen on the ice and I’ll show you an habitual liar with serious delusions of grandeur.

14. Do you remember your favorite gift? Of course I do. If I didn’t remember it, it wouldn’t be my favorite, now would it?

15. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Family gatherings and time off from work. It’s also pretty cool to see your child’s face light up throughout all the excitement.

16. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Pumpkin dessert that my wife makes.

17. What is your favorite holiday tradition? I kind of like the rather new tradition that my family has started, having Christmas on New Year’s. It allows us to visit both families during the holidays and the excitement of opening gifts isn’t blown all in one wad.

18. What tops your tree? An Angel.

19. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Depends. Generally I really prefer giving gifts, but there are those people that I really don’t like that I’m expected to give gifts too. It’s not that I prefer getting gifts from them. I would really prefer that we do away with all the false pretenses and crap like that and just let people know what we really think of them.

20. What is your favorite Christmas Song? “What Child is This” is pretty cool, and I really love Whiteheart’s version of The Little Drummer Boy. It rocks.

21. CANDY CANES!! YUCK OR YUM?? Yuck. What a waste of candy. Does anybody ever eat the whole thing? Or do you just suck on it until the end of it gets really sharp and pointed and then you try to pierce the top of the empty Cool Whip bowl when your throwing it in the trash.

22. What is your favorite Christmas movie? National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is pretty good, and I like Nightmare Before Christmas. Gremlins and Die Hard provide some moments of entertainment. I really don’t like those sappy, disgusting holiday movies.

23. Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman or Charlie Brown? Charlie Brown. I’m so indifferent to the other two that I can’t even think of anything derogatory to say about them.

I totally get letting the kid decorate the tree!

There were some answers that I could just hear your sister saying! Thought that was odd since ya'll are adopted but then...maybe that was when the trauma started.

jonboy said...

Yes, being a sibling to Spooky can be very traumatic as well.

SpookyRach said...

Hello? I AM NOT Adopted. My brother is. My parents felt sorry for him I guess. I dunno. Maybe he was some sort of mission project.

Anyway, these are the same dang answers I gave on this thing, ya big copycat.

Hey, great blog site and loved the answers.
The only person I know who eats all of the candy cane is my husband. He even finishes off the ones I start. Yuck!

Great blog - I enjoyed reading your last few posts so will probably come back and read again... Helps that it's saved to "Favourites".

The answer to #22 probably has something to do with your traumatic childhood. Rachel probably has NOTHING to do with it. Right? Right?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, everyone else is right--these do sound a lot like Rachel's answers. OK, I am back to blogging now, so stop by for a visit.
