Christmas Quiz



I saw this over at LissyLou's and thought I'd give it a go....

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? 
Bit too warming for Christmas in the southern hemisphere, maybe punch.

Does Santa wrap presents or just puts them under the tree? 
Santa wraps most - for  three kids in three different patterns of Christmas paper. This helps him
put the presses out and get to be at a reasonable hour before the kids wake their parents up at some 
unGodly hour!

Coloured or white lights on tree/house?
Thanks to solar lights, we now look like the Griwalds - coloured lights EVERYWHERE!


Do you hang mistletoe?
                                 I have yet to work out what this actually is, something to illicit smooching I hear!

When do you put your decorations up?
Miss m's birthday is December 1st - so the day after her celebrations the decs go up.

What is your favourite holiday dish? 
Left overs!

Favourite holiday memory? 
                           Christmas, when my family lived closed to extended family we would gather for 
huge parties. My favourite memory was the cheer that would go up each and every time 
another family member would arrive. The last to arrive received a resounding cheer!

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
No

How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
                                               Specific colour themes that vary from year to year



Snow! Love it or dread it?
huh? Snow? At Christmas? 

Can you ice skate?
No, but i can boogie board and can float on a lilo really well.

Do you remember your favorite gift? 
Swirla Curla Chrissy (she was a doll with hair that wound up when you wound the wheel up at the 
back retracting the hair. You pressed her belly button and yanked her hair back to long) I still have her.

What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? 
Watching the children and sharing their excitement, downing tools and feeling the
general malaise that sweeps over Australia and remains for the rest of summer.

What's your favourite holiday dessert? 
Trifle

What is your favourite holiday tradition?
A massive breakfast with blueberry pancakes and a very late lunch.

What tops your tree?
A star

Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?
Giving...I love watching everyone open their parcels - oh and getting the big hugs 
after.

Candy canes... yuck or yum!?
Yuck after two

Favourite Christmas show?
A Wonderful Life

Saddest Christmas Song?
Confession here - I actually tear up when I hear any Christmas song. EXCEPT for
that Bob Geldof, live aid song. It brings out the grinch in me - I HATE it!
