1. Favorite Christmas movie? White Christmas
2.What are 3 things on your Christmas list this year? Nothing material for me. My wishes are that my kids and grandkids will appreciate the season for what it is.
3. Does it snow where you live? Occasionally.  Actually, it snowed this past weekend.  Unusual to get snow here this early in the year.
4. Do you celebrate Christmas, if not then what Holiday? Merry Christmas!
5. Favorite gift you’ve ever gotten? This is a toss up between my Mother's Ring I got last year (after asking for one for years), and the baby doll I got as a child that was part of the family and I still have :).
6. Worst gift you’ve ever gotten? I honestly cannot think of a bad (actual) gift.  I've taken some stuff home from Dirty Santa parties that I could've done without.
7. What time do you get up on Christmas? We do Santa gifts on Christmas Eve, so we don't get up extra early on Christmas Day.  
8. Biggest pet peeve about the Christmas season? Hmmm, something negative about CHRISTMAS?? LOL.  I guess my pet peeve would be the people that get offended by someone saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". 
9. Favorite Christmas song? I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
10. Would you rather it be cold and cloudy, or be kind of warm out? Warm. I hate the cold. Although, I kind of need it to be cold for the Christmas spirit to kick in, but as soon as Christmas is over I wish it would stay in the 70s!
11. Hot chocolate or eggnog? Hot chocolate
12. Favorite thing to wear during the Christmas season? Anything festive
13. Anybody you’re hoping to bump into under the mistletoe? Matthew McConaughey :)

14. Embarrassing Christmas story? You would have just had to be there. 
15. Favorite Christmas treat? Fantasy Fudge (I think it's the recipe on the marshmallow cream jar. Mama makes it)
16. Latest you’ve stayed up on New Year’s Eve? Well, years ago, it would have been nothing to see the sun come up on New Year's Day. Now, I head to bed shortly after the ball drops.
17. Favorite Christmas character? Santa Claus
18. What are you doing for the holidays this year? Christmas Eve, we will go to dinner and drive around looking at lights, then my kids and grandkids will be at my house for gifts. Christmas Day I will go to my mom's to hang out, then the Saturday after Christmas we will have Christmas dinner at her house.
19. Ever been to someone else’s family’s Christmas? no
20. Favorite pie flavor? traditionally chocolate.  2 years ago though I made a banana pudding pie. That was awesome, but it really was just banana pudding in a   pie crust.
21. Your favorite Christmas tradition growing up? tractor/trailer rides on my aunt's land with all the cousins (there were a BUNCH of us).
22. White lights or colored lights? White lights on the tree, colored lights everywhere else.
23. Favorite Christmas dinner dish? Dumplins
24. Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Christmas Eve
25. What tops your tree? a star
26. Candy canes- Yum or Yuck? Yum
27. Egg nog or Hot Chocolate? Still Hot Chocolate. :)
28. Do you hang mistletoe? not usually
29. Favorite Christmas activity? shopping
30. Favorite Christmas story? THE Christmas story

 

That was fun. Thanks.

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:
