Christmas Survey & Day 8

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I cringe at Egg Nog, but really, I can't remember the last time I tasted it! I'm a Hot Chocolate fan all the way.

Colored lights on tree/house or white? I love colored lights, though our new tree is only white lights. It looks nice. I have a string of colored lights going up my banister.

Do you hang mistletoe? Nope. I can kiss my husband any time I want to ;)

When do you put your decorations up? Usually not until December. This year, right after Thanksgiving.

What is your favorite holiday dish? Hm... deviled eggs, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy!

Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Coming down the stairs and seeing the living room OVERFLOWING with gifts. I know, sounds a little materialistic, but I was like 7 or 8!

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Oh, I had my suspicions, but didn't really figure it out until I was like 12. I know, that's old, but I have a good imagination. I noticed my mom's hand writing is the same as Santa's. I wasn't disappointed :P

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No, I don't like that. We've done it a couple times, Brandon and I, but it's not my favorite thing.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? With lights and ornaments :P

Snow! Love it or Dread it? I miss snow :( I grew up in Canada, it was fun. I hate driving in it, but I figure it out.

Do you remember your favorite gift? I got this awesome sled when I was 10 or so. It was black and fast and made of plastic, so one time I went over a jump and it broke. RIP cool sled. (Oh, and Brandon got me my MacBook one year. That was pretty damn awesome)

What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Nowadays, it's pumpkin pie. I used to hate it and now I can't get enough.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? Christmas breakfast. My mom would make a fruit salad and have all kinds of pastries. Brandon's family did cinnamon rolls, so now we're combining the two!

Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? Yum!

Favorite Christmas movie? Can I count Love Actually? I'm going to watch that this year!

Saddest Christmas Song? Oh, I dunno. I like Christmas music.

What is your favorite Christmas song? Carol of the Bells. I just think it sounds cool. Second place: Let It Snow, especially the Garth Brooks version.

Day 8: A Bad Habit

I could've taken pictures of my gnawed on fingers, but that's just gross. Instead, I wanted to show you my candy problem.
Because of my hypoglycemia, I keep candy out of the house. The only soda we have is Coke, which I don't drink, so I'm not tempted. We do have ice cream, but that's a dairy product ;)

But when candy makes it into our house... it's bad. Bad bad bad. And delicious.
