Christmas List

Stole this from Amie, who stole it from someone else – so since it wasn’t really hers, does that mean I didn’t steal it? I mean, can you steal something from someone if they don’t actually own it?

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Used to wrap them.
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Colored
4. Do you hang mistletoe? For what? So I can kiss a cat?
5. When do you put your decorations up? When I get around to it.
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Hugh Jackman under the mistletoe. Oh wait, you meant food. Cherry salad.
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: The year my parent’s bought me a bike.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? What truth about Santa? Is there something I should know? Is it in the National Enquirer?
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Used to talk the parent’s into letting us open one present on Christmas Eve.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Very carefully. I’m obsessive about it.
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it if I don’t have to get out in it.
12. Can you ice skate? Not anymore. Not since I grew up and discovered gravity.
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Barbie airplane and soda shop.
14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Family.
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Cherry cheesecake
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Reading Luke 2: 1 - 14 on Christmas Eve.
17. What tops your tree? I used to have two trees (just don’t put the second one up anymore). One has a beautiful angel topper; the other one has one of those glass spire thingies, that’s tall, you know, like a spire thing, pointy thingy.
18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Giving
19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Mary Did You Know (the Mark Lowry version from the Gaither Family – he’s the one that wrote it, so the emotion is real. Non-secular: White Christmas.
20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? Yuck.

Ha! I was going to do this tonight, if you don't mind,(great minds think alike)I think I'll still do it and link to you and ask anyone who visits to do the questions as well. And since you probably won't see this I have no idea why I phrased it like a question. I know Glenice is there nad I hope y'all are having a rip-roaring time!!

Brandy said...

Bugging you again, sorry. Decided to post mine later. Again, I hope you're having a much deserved great time!!

Michele said...

6 & 12?


Hope you are having fun! You deserve some!

Bailey Stewart said...

We had a blast. Glenice will be taking me to work in a little while, then she's off to the airport to wing back home. I'm on a 9 - 5 shift today, so I'll check in here when I can.

Oh, and she gave me the most beautiful Christmas present - I'll try to see if it photographs well.

Take care.

Toni Anderson said...

I think I'll steal that as well (or not)--it is very sweet :)

You're not supposed to open your Christmas presents!!

Olga said...

It was an interesting list (lol about mistletoe!) I hope you're having good time, Bailey!

6 was my favorite too! I have a better chance of getting a kiss from one of my 6 cats than anyone else roflmao.

Too bad it was such a short visit, hope you had fun together.

So is there a recipe for that cherry salad? I love cherries lol.

For a long time, we used to have this angel in green velvet and gold ribbons, sort of old-fashioned, for our tree at home. We had gotten it from an old friend. Then suddenly, my mother didn't want to use it anymore. It was kind of strange.

But I miss it. It was beautiful and would make a nice Christmas decoration for this place.

I'm such a cheesecake nut. The one we had on Thursday night at the banquet was really delicious with pecans or something nutty on top. But I'll take it any way I can get it. My sister usually makes it with cherries too. Yum, definitely *not* yuck. Candy canes? They usually age a year or two before I eat, suck, whatever them.

We always go to church Christmas Eve and watch the children's program(they do a birth of Christ play) Then we go back to my parent's and open presents

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Oh, man, I'll take a side of that Hugh Jackman under the tree too. With some Baileys of course. :-)

christa said...

Unless the hot chocolate is the kind made with hot water and powder then eggnog with lots of rum.

Susie said...

I like this Xmas list, I'll just borrow it.

You had Glenice in town and didn't even tell me. Wanted her all to yourself, I see. Glad you had a good visit.
