Only for Lizzie

Welcome to the 2007 Holiday Edition of Getting to Know Your Friends!
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Egg Nog? Bleck, gag, cough, hurl. GROSS!! Hot Chocolate? maybe if I'm REALLY cold.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Perched next to stockings- which still are not hung
3. Colored or white lights on tree/house?
Definitely Both, I love variety
4. Do you hang mistletoe?
Are you kidding me? I already have enough trouble!
5. When do you put your decorations up?
Wait, we're supposed to get that stuff out BEFORE Christmas? Darn it!
6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)
Umm, if we eat pie for breakfast, does that count as dessert?
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child:
My Grandpa and Grandma Snyder (who were quite poor) showing up with trinkets for each of us and then playing Monopoly all day. The gifts were so out of character for them, it was a very memorable treat.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
What, you mean that he has no sense of direction? Well, I learned all about Rudolph in Kindergarten, so I guess I was 5. . .
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Only if there's a boring one and lots of other gifts under the tree. Don't get your hopes up this year, kids!
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
This year? Pre-lit fake tree with lots of candy canes. Extraordinarily tacky, but very very easy. . .
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Please reference my reaction to Egg Nog. Then multiply exponentially.
12. Can you ice skate?
When I forget I'm old and arthritic, yes. Really? Probably not so much anymore
13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
A sapphire ring. I LOVED it, but it was the wrong size and I returned it but never got another one. Mom, why didn't that get replaced, exactly?
14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Watching kids' eyes light up when they get just exactly what they wanted
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
I don't believe I've expressed my love for pie. . .
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I'm not very good at repetitive behaviors
17. What tops your tree?
right now, a big dusty bag because the tree isn't even up yet
18. Which do you prefer: Giving or Receiving?
Giving, for sure. Especially gag gifts.
19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
O Holy Night by Michael Ballam. Michael Crawford also does an awesome version
20. Candy Canes?
Peppermint only, and only one or two.
21. How many Nativities do you own?
A few- not nearly as many as I would own if I had anywhere to display them.

See Elizabeth? I really do love you. That was proof.
