I Got Christmas Tagged !

Ok Kat never been tagged before so here goes :-

Eggnog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate, partly cos i've never tasted Eggnog and a drink with egg whether it contains it or not doest sound that nice :)

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Hmm well my tree is just for me but when I was little I was of the santa wraps the pressies school of thought. I got main pressies from my mum and dad and family but santa brought little things.

Coloured lights on tree/house or white? coloured lights on my big main tree and white on my little hall tree but only cos its white and gold and looked silly with coloured lights.

Do you hang mistletoe? No but occasionally have holly if i can get it

When do you put up your decorations? mainly when i remember and can get time but usually around 12th Dec.

What is your favorite holiday dish? hmm i dont really have a favourite unless it something someone else cooked and did the dishes for :) I have christmas dinner just myself and have roast chicken and trimmings but my Dad and Katy always did a full roast turkey on boxing day for all the family and I loved that. Now Dad's retired the two of them are going away for christmas this year so have to feed myself on boxingday :)

Favorite Holiday memory as a child? oh, school and sunday school christmas parties as you could get a new dress and making snowmen on the few years it snowed at christmas,

When and how did you learn that Santa isn't real? He's not! Seriously dont remember.

Can you ice skate? A bit i can go forwards and back wards and in a wide circle but turning a tight corner has to be done at a walk.

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? I open one after midnight mass so technically very early christmas morning.

How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Artificial tree with tinsel, beads and baubles. I used to go in colour themes either red and green, blue and silver or red and gold. but mainly red and gold last few years.

Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it especially as i've bought new winter boots to keep my feet warm

What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Celebrating Jesus birth. I'll be singing a lot with the church at various events and sheltered housing complexes this year

Do you remember your favorite gift? as a kid My Lundby electric doll house it had lights you could turn on an off and a tv and coal fire that lit up and my mum and dad had bought furniture to go with it. As a big kid - the new PC my mum and peter got me last year when i was angling for an external hard-drive :) and the digital camera my dad and katy got me a few years back and still going strong.

What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Hot Christmas Pudding

What tops your tree? a silver Star on the main tree as it sits on a table you'd be looking up the skirt of any angel, my small tree in the hall has a little gold angel.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? Carol singing, we have a joint churches group on the island and try and arrange a saturday or sunday afternoon to sing in the town just for the fun of it not collecting for anything.

Which do you prefer giving or Receiving gifts? Honestly i prefer receiving as I never know what to buy for people, i do like to see them happy when they open gifts but i'm so paranoid about not buying the right gift that I can get quite wound up about giving.

What is your favorite Christmas Song? I have loads of christmas songs i like some carols some pop songs. My fav at the moment is one i sing as a solo called Gabriels Message that i first heard on the B-side of Stings Russians and now sing it in church

Candy Canes on the tree? Not on the tree to heavy for my branches but definately around the tree to eat.

I am going to tag Hazel, Jenny, and Amy Hopefully they'll play along! :)
