25 Holiday Questions, you know you want to answer these too!


I just woke up from sleeping 12 hours, TWELVE! This never happens people! I get back spasms pretty much every hour and they will wake me up, cause me to get hot, then I have to find the comfortable spot with half sheet, half quilt covering me, and then get back to sleep. It's a process! And I normally sleep 7 hours. BUT TWELVE! I'm so happy, I woke up thanking the Lord above something fierce for this gift of sleep! That being said, I have to tackle household cleaning today, finish a few orders, wrap a few gifts, and then try to be proactive on upcoming projects and blog posts! I think I can, I think I can!

Today's blog post is a fun one! I love Christmas and the birth of my Savior, Jesus, which is the reason for the season, but it's still fun to do a list of Holiday questions! Here goes!


25 Questions: Holiday Style

  • Eggnog or hot chocolate?
EGGNOG! My Grandmother, God rest her soul, made the most incredible eggnog from scratch. She would also add quite a bit of whiskey, which kept you warm she said. People would come to her house just for the eggnog! I was lucky enough to watch her many times and write down the recipe!
  • Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
"Santa" a.k.a. ME, wraps them and puts them under the tree. We don't have kids to hide them from, but it's hard for me not to spill the beans, so the faster their wrapped and under there, the less tempted I am at revealing them before Christmas!

  • Colored lights on tree/house or white?
White lights are my favorite, but I do like the bright purple colored ones! I feel like they just came out with that color- right?
  • Do you hang mistletoe?
I never have! I probably should!
  • When do you hang your decorations up?
This year, I hung them up super early so we could enjoy them more! I don't believe in the whole waiting until after Thanksgiving because that's not even a month! And I want to and would rather celebrate Jesus' birthday longer than separating it from Thanksgiving. (I'm part Cherokee)
  • What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
We don't really have/haven't made any traditions as far as Christmas holiday food yet. Thanksgiving's menu is pretty traditional.
  • Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Traveling from Atlanta to Louisiana so we could be with all of our family is my favorite memory.
  • What is on your Christmas wish list?
Mainly my favorite candle, Circle E Candle, in Peace scent! LOVEEE ITTT
  • Do you open a gifts on Christmas Eve?
Nope not usually.
  • How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Same as anyone does, ornaments, bows, no ribbon. This year the colors are an ice blue, red and a few green ornaments.
  • Snow? Love it or dread it?
I would've said love it being that I never really had snow longer than a day every other year. But, now that I live here, I'm starting to turn to the dark side and say..... dread!
  • Real tree or fake tree?
Mine is a fake white one. I would love a real one, but too much mess, fire hazards, smallish apartment.
  • Do you remember your favorite gift?
Hmm I can’t think of one particular favorite, Christmas is about so much more than gifts and I really dislike the fact that I have to get more gifts on Christmas than on people's actual birthday! You could make me something out of pipe cleaners and I'd be just as touched as if it were diamonds!
  • What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you?
Celebrating the birth of my Lord and Savior with family! How incredibly blessed are we that God gave his only son for us to have everlasting life?
  • What is your favorite holiday dessert?
  • What is your favorite tradition?
As I mentioned before, we haven't really made our own traditions yet, but we will!
  • What tops your tree?
I have a big red glittery bow on there now. I haven't found the perfect angel.
  • Do you prefer giving or receiving?
GIVING! I love making people happy!
  • What is your favorite Christmas song?
Oh Holy Night, it makes me tear up every.single.time.
  • Candy canes, yuck or yum?
  • Favorite Christmas movie?
Umm, The Grinch! The cartoon one. I've loved it since I was a child!
  • What do you leave for Santa?
  • Do you have a Christmas morning tradition?
Not yet. I want to make one with Chris now.
  • Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall?
Online! Or mall if it's before Thanksgiving!
  • Christmas letter or Christmas card?
Christmas card. Although the more I get from others are picture ones. So I guess I'll jump on the bandwagon next year and send out picture cards!
