some Christmas trivia

I guess not so much trivia, but trivial! LOL I snagged this from my friend, Janet, because I loved reading her answers. Here's the questions and my answers, and I'd love to read yours!!

1. Open the Christmas presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morn? Our family opens one gift on Christmas Eve and then all of the rest on Christmas morning. When the kids were little, Santa gifts were left unwrapped, but now we wrap everything.

2. Favorite children's Christmas song? Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. We sing it all year long! haha

3. Most annoying thing about this time of year? People who don't put up a tree. Although, the older I get, I kinda understand those empty nesters reluctance to do so. However, I love looking at the lights, so I hope my kids will do it for me if I ever turn into Scrooge!

4. Favorite ornament theme or color? This is a hard one for me because I go with what I feel that year. I love burgundy, green, and gold; but I also love green or blue and silver.

5.  Turkey or ham on Christmas Day? We usually do both.

6. What do you want for Christmas this year? Some good family time. I want the kids to be happy. We love playing cards and watching movies together and we have rearranged our travel time to do some of that.

7. Does anyone in your family dress up as Santa? no

8. Age you discovered Santa wasn't real? I cannot remember. I love the dream of Santa.

9. Eggnog, hot chocolate or apple cider? Hot chocolate unless we are at Starbucks, and then I love their hot cider.

10. Do you have any Christmas decorations on  your roof? Ha! I barely have them outside. We've never done the roof thing.

11. How does Santa get into your house, chimney or magic key? chimney

12. Do you prefer gifts or tokens? Gifts. I put a lot of thought into the gifts I give, and I appreciate it when others do too. Although, just because I give something doesn't mean I have to have something in return. I love the giving part a lot.

There's another part of this that I plan to post tomorrow. I hope you will play along. Leave me a comment letting me know that you are posting on your blog so that I can come and read your answers or just leave your answers in the comment section!


  1. Liked your answers, but didn't I see Steve in a Santa suit in your library?
