1. Hot chocolate or apple cider?
Hot chocolate, unless I have a cold. Then it's hot spiced cider. I have mulling spice teabags that make it easy.

2. Turkey or Ham?
Roast beast! Well, beef tenderloin.

3. Do you get a Fake or Real Christmas tree?
Real. We go on a big expedition to a local tree farm. Next year, though, I'm going to have to put my foot down and insist we get one that doesn't take up 1/3 the room.

4. Decorations on the outside of your house?
Lights, definitely. Otherwise it gets too depressing that it is dark so early. Also a wreath.

5. Snowball fights or sledding?
Sledding! Last year I could only watch since I'd just had ankle surgery, but this year for sure.

6. Do you like hanging around the fireplace because it’s warm?
Warm and to keep my 4yo from playing with the fire tools.

7. Do you enjoy going downtown shopping?
Only if I have lots of time and nothing particular to get. Otherwise it's too stressful. I do most of my shopping online.

8. Favorite Christmas song?
Don't really have a favorite.

9. How do you feel about Christmas movies?
I like the classics.

10. When is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?
Before Thanksgiving.

11. Stockings before or after presents?
After. When you've unwrapped all the presents, then realize there is still something left.

12. Carolers, do you or do you not listen to them?
I go caroling with my chorus.

13. Go to someone else’s house or they come to you?
It varies. I prefer to be at home.

14. Do you read the Christmas Story the night before Christmas?
Not generally, but I will probably read it to my 4yo a lot during the next few weeks (if I can find it).

15. What do you do after presents?
Collapse for a bit, then make breakfast.

16. What is your favorite holiday smell?
Cookies baking

17. Ice skating or walking around the mall?
Ice skating.

18. Favorite Christmas memory:
My brother surreptitiously knocking on the wall to convince me Santa was coming so I'd go to bed.

19. Favorite Part about winter?
Snow, the first few times. Fire in the fireplace.

20. Food you eat this time of year that you may not during the others seasons.
Yorkshire puddings, chocolate trifle.

21. Do you have winter sheets for your bed?

22. Do you eat ice cream in the winter?

23. Mittens or gloves?
Gloves definitely.
