My Kind of Christmas

I got this from Back to Me and thought a little holiday cheer seemed an excellent idea!

Eggnog or hot chocolate? Egg Nog!!!

Does Santa wrap the presents or leave them open under the tree? Of course Santa wraps presents otherwise what would be the surprise on Christmas morning!!!?!

Colored lights on a tree or white? White. No exceptions!

Do you hang mistletoe? Can’t get any in SA – otherwise we definitely would, I love kisses!

When do you put your decorations up? Not before 1 December, but as soon after that as I can make the time!

What is your favorite holiday dish? Hmmmm, is it our version of Christmas Cake (Carrot), or the trifle? No, undoubtedly it’s the gammon recipe from Aunt Chris who we miss so dealy at this time of the year.

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? With my mom it was always a tradition to open just one gift on Christmas Eve, but now we don’t really do gifts, and Hopelessly doesn’t believe in Christmas Eve gifts.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Gold and Earth tones ONLY no red, green and mixed colours allowed. This year we have added a deep red, almost burgundy to the mix, in candles, but NOT on the tree!

Snow: love it or hate it? Not really an option in SA and I HATE the fake stuff, but the real stuff on our one Christmas in Scotland, was awesome!

Can you ice skate? I can, but not really a tradition in SA, did go once in London and it was a fun night out with the work crowd.

What is your favorite holiday dessert? Hmmm Trifle, just like my granny used to make

What is your favorite holiday tradition? The present game, always gets everyone laughing (if anyone wants the rules, just let me know!)

Candy canes: yum or yuck? YUCK!

Favorite Christmas show? Hmm, not a TV fan, Christmas for us is about being with family, not about watching the box, but every year we bring out the “Love Actually” DVD from the collection and watch it AGAIN!

If you post this to your blog with your own answers come back and link in the comments. I’d love to read what you wrote!
