Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
Hot chocolate. Since I am allergic to eggs, eggnog might not be a good idea! However, I used to drink my Grandma’s eggnog…let’s just say it was less egg and more nog! Lol.
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?
Well when Santa visited me…some things were wrapped and some where unwrapped…now everything is stuffed in my stocking..which was knitted by my great aunt. Those suckers can hold a lot! When the day comes that I have children of my own gifts will probably be both wrapped and unwrapped!
Colored lights or white?
I used to love colored lights, but now I am liking the white lights. There is just something magical about them.
When do you decorate?
Sadly…we don’t decorate! We are never home for Christmas so we very rarely put up a tree. That will all change in the new house. I do however decorate my classroom and that usually happens after Thanksgiving break.
Real or Fake Tree?
Well I am allergic to the real things, so fake it is!
What Tops Your Tree?
When I put up a tree it is a Purple and Gold Star to go along with my LSU inspired tree!
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
Every we go to my Grandma’s and Aunts. Even though all the cousins have grown older and are starting our own families we still stick with our traditions. At some point we all watch Christmas Vacation; because we truly are the Griswolds…we used to pull up in an RV…so I guess my family is Eddie Griswold. Lol. Every Christmas Eve we have my Grandma’s Sauce Piquant (Cajun dish, kinda like Jambalaya and Gumbo together) then we open presents from each other. Then it is off to bed. My Favorite memory would be my cousin Jarred and I sneaking into the living room to see what Santa brought. As we go older we got wiser and used walkie talkies and flash lights. Then Christmas Morning comes and we open presents (and act surprised) then every comes over to my aunts for Christmas lunch with fried turkey and all the yumminess! Then we watch the movies we got in our stockings. My mom and dad’s anniversary is the day after Christmas sometimes we go out to eat other times we stay home.
Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
I would have to say it was when I got my dog Muffie, who has since passed. My uncle had gotten a puppy and his nephew had gotten the puppy’s sister and we were all passing the puppies around loving on them, when I went to go give the puppy back to my uncle he already had his, so I went to go give it back to his nephew, but he already had his! I was like well who’s puppy is this? Everyone said she was mine! She was a cute little snowball, even though she was a blue heeler. I had her for 16 years until she died of cancer, she out lived her brother and sister that my uncle and his nephew had.
|She did not like her Halloween Costume...|
Do prefer giving or receiving?
Is it bad if I say both? Lol. I love giving to my friend’s kids it is pure joy watching them open their presents.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
It is actually a new one (well new to me) that my church choir sang in their Christmas Cantata. It is called Heaven Everywhere by Francesca Battistelli.
Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
Yuck…I like peppermints, but for some reason I don’t like candy canes. I know I am weird!
Favorite Christmas Movie?
