Festive Christmas Favorites!

Favorite Christmas Movie?
That is a tough one, considering I have quit a few! Any of the originals, Rudolph, Frosty, A Charlie Brown Christmas, etc...I would watch those as a child with my Papa each year. They are all near and dear to my heart. But I can't forget about Elf! Gotta get those laughs in!

Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?
I am hoping for the Nice list! Although, we all know that only Santa knows that answer! He, he!

Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Yes, a few times in the past. I especially remember two years ago. It was beautiful!

Where do you usually spend your holiday?
We do our family gifts at home in the morning, then usually head over to my in-laws for breakfast and more presents! Then we head over to some extended family members for a great big Christmas dinner.

What's your favorite Christmas song?
There is NO way I can pick just one! I love Christmas too much to pick! But two of my faves are: "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Johnny Mercer & Margeret Whiting, and "Cool Yule" by Louis Armstrong!

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Not usually...but it would be fun!

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?     
On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen! On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen! Don't forget about Rudolf!

What Christmas tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
Getting our tree and decorating it! Oh, and my Christmas cards! But this year we are starting a new one: Elf on a Shelf! Our elf's name is Hermy! Emma loves him, and the whole idea behind it! I love that she believes!!!

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
This is our second year with a real tree. We started last year, after moving into our house. It smells so good!

What is your all-time favorite Christmas sweet treat?
I don't have one favorite in particular, but usually anything involving peppermint is good in my book!

Do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Honestly, BOTH! However, the giving of gifts, and watching them open it, is best!

What would be your dream place to visit for the Christmas season?
I would love to see what the Holidays are like in Italy...I can only imagine how beautiful it must be!

Does your family have a special Christmas recipe you like to help make?
My father in-law has THE BEST Christmas morning cream-of-wheat recipe ever! He won't share it with me though...YET! He, he!

Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
It is definitely NOT my strong suit! But I do like to pick out the wrapping paper, boxes and bags!

Most memorable Christmas moment?
Oh my...I literally have so many. From when I was a child, with my Papa and family, to my daughters first Christmas, to list would be too long!

What made you realize the truth about Father Christmas?
Are we talking Santa? 'Cause if we are, then I know exactly! I noticed my Papa's wedding band, and realized he was not in the room when Santa was...let's just say that I put 2+2 together! But if we are talking the true meaning of the Holiday, then it would be when I was younger, and went to church every Sunday...

Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I NEVER make resolutions! In fact, I wrote a whole post about this last year...I believe that making resolutions, is setting yourself up for failure in the coming year...

What makes Christmas special for you?
FAMILY! TRADITIONS! MEMORIES! MUSIC! LIGHTS! PRESENTS! GIVING! EVERYTHING! Sometimes I wonder, 'do I love Christmas too much'?! But then I think to myself: 'NO! Not possible!'
