1. Hot Chocolate or apple cider?

2. Turkey or Ham?
Turkey this year. My mom always had ham and my grandma often had both.

3. Do you get a fake or real-you-cut-it-yourself Christmas tree?
We've had a fake tree the past couple of years, but this year there's not room for a tree. I have a small, lighted ceramic tree on the mantle with the wrapped presents stacked next to it.

4. Decorations on the outside of your house?
No. When I was a teenager I put lights up outside our house, but that was the only time we ever had decorations outside that I remember.

5. Snowball fights or sledding?
Snow Angels

6. Do you enjoy going downtown shopping?
Why in the world would I go downtown to shop in KC?

7. Favorite Christmas song?
I don't really have a favorite Christmas song. I do have a few Christmas CDs to play on Christmas morning, but it really just depends on my mood.

8. How do you feel about Christmas movies?
I like Christmas movies as a general rule as long as they're not sappy just to be sappy.

9. When is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?
Before Thanksgiving

10. Stockings before or after presents?
I remember having a stocking as a kid, but I think my parents dropped it at some point when I was still pretty young. Becky (mom-in-law) does stockings for us and they're fun. They're always before gifts.

11. Carolers, do you or do you not watch and listen to them?
Do people still go caroling?

12. Go to someone else's house or they come to you?
Usually we go to someone elses, but this year we'll be home.

13. Do you read the Christmas Story? If so when?

14. What do you do after presents and dinner?
The last few years - breakfast & stockings, chatting, presents, lunch

15. What is your favorite holiday smell?

16. Ice skating or walking around the mall?
I like ice skating, but I'm not good at it and it's been years. Walking around the mall is supposed to be fun?

17. Do you open a present or presents on Christmas Eve, or wait until Christmas Day?
My family always had a tradition of opening one on Christmas Eve with the extended family and then the rest on Christmas morning.

18. Favorite Christmas memory?
There are really too many to pick a favorite.

19. Favorite part about winter?
Clear days when the sun is shining brigtly. I like cold, gray days too, especially when I can stay warm at home and nap. I think I was a cat in another life.

20. Ever been kissed under mistletoe?

Stolen from liatha.
