What is your Christmas like?

Did you believe in Santa Claus when you were a child? Of course, who didn't??

Do you decorate the outside of your house for Christmas? Never had a house but used to decorate my balcony with lights. Now that I live in a condo, it's against the stupid rules to put ANYTHING on the outside.

Do you eat a turkey dinner for your Christmas dinner? Depends, sometimes we have ham since we have turkey for Thanksgiving just a month prior. This year it will be turkey though.

Do you enjoy singing Christmas songs? Meh, yes and no

Do you go to church on Christmas day? Nope

Do you hang up a stocking? Yes, in fact, I ordered Tayllor and I some really pretty new velvety ones with our names embriodered on them!! Much better than the hand me downs I had from my mama

Do you have any plans to go to a Christmas party? My company Christmas party, as always, and the Arctic Lions get together. Nothing personal though

Do you remember when you found out that Santa Claus wasn't real/ or when your children found out? What was your/their reaction like? I don't remember when I found out about Santa but I'm sure it was becuase of one of my 3 older brothers. As for Tayllor, I've asked him if he believes and he says yes, but I'm not really sure if he says that to make me happy or if he really does. He does have an uncle who is only 5 yrs older than he is, so he may have told Tayllor the truth.

Do you see your relatives at Christmas time? I see my mama, my lil bro, and 1 of my older brothers and his wonderful family. Everyone else lives out of state.

Do you usually put up Christmas decorations in your house? A few things. My roomie is HUGE into Christmas. We have Christmas snow globes out we got from my company party last year, we have our "Christmas Countdown" that Tayllor loves and a few lights here and there.

How about at your school or the place where you work? Don't go to school and we have a miniature tree with small ornaments and some other cute little Christmasy plushies that sing when pressed.

Does your family have any special Christmas traditions? Not a huge tradition but Tayllor and I love to drive around and look at all the houses that are lit up. The bigger the better of course :)

Does your town get decorated at Christmas? Yes, there are wreaths with lights in them on the lamp posts and a lot of houses around town are all decked out.

Have you already finished your Christmas shopping? Nope, haven't even started yet :(

Have you ever celebrated Christmas in a foreign country? Never been out of this country, so no.

Have you ever made your own Christmas cards? No.

How do you usually spend New Year's Eve? Every other year I have Tayllor. When I have him, we usually try and get fireworks and light those off (or go to a friends house and light them off there) and on the years I don't have him, sometimes go to the bar, or stay at home with mom and watch the ball drop and drink there. Just depends on my mood. Last year we were on an airplane heading towards Disneyworld!! :)

How long do you keep your Christmas tree up after Christmas? HA! I kept it up until February one year!! But, usually by the week after New Years.

How many Christmas cards did you receive last year? 25 or so.

How many Christmas cards do you send? 60 to 70.

If you could go anywhere during Christmas vacation, where would you go? I don't think I'd go anywhere. Oooo, but I would LOVE to go to New York and see the BIG tree in Rockafeller Center!!

Is your Christmas tree a real tree or an artificial tree? Artificial

What do you eat on Christmas Day? Turkey (or ham), stuffing, taters, corn on the cob, homemade fruit salad, homemade macaroni salad, pumpkin and apple pies.

What is the weather like in your country around Christmas time? It can be friggin cold!! It's

What is your favorite Christmas song? All I want For Christmas is my 2 Front Teeth by Alvin and the Chipmunks :0)

What time do you wake up on Christmas day? About 7ish.

What time does your family open the presents? Not to long after we get up. Then we go to my moms house, open more presents and eat lunch/dinner.

When do you do your Christmas shopping? HA! The last minute, usually after the Christmas bonus gets passed out (fingers crossed it happens this year).

Will you have a Christmas party at your home? God I hope not, lol.

Do you give something to homeless people? I don't usually because I can't really afford it :/


  1. So you had 'that big brother' too. Mine still teases me about whatever......still calls me those childhood names......haha

  2. Oh my gosh, my oldest full blooded brother still does too. Makes me wonder if they EVER grow up, haha

  3. very glad your roomie is big into Christmas... keep ya from backsliding now that I'm not up there...

    one thing though... don't understand that whole "remember when you found out Santa wasn't real question"...
