1. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
We open them Christmas Day. I remember my oldest daughter’s second Christmas we actually opened gifts over about 5 days. I didn’t want her to get too overwhelmed and not enjoy what people had chosen for her, so we would open a few, then a few the next day, so on and so forth. This year will be a little like that. My mom will be coming down a week or so after Christmas, so we’ll have that time with the grandparents then. I like it that way. I know as a kid I liked celebrating on different days.
2. What is your favorite Christmas cookie (or candy)?
Hands down, candy cane cookies. Kind of a plain tasting cookie, but oh I love them. The hints of almond are fantabulous!
3. What’s the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
Oh there were the things people gave me that didn’t fit, and at the time that seemed like such a tragedy, but honestly, I don’t remember any of them. I just remember being very loved by my family and friends who took the time to choose gifts or give me money or certificates. The gifts might not have been perfect, but they were given out of love.
4. Christmas song that you love?
Hmmmm, have to do some research to come up with the name, but I know it is by Trans Siberian Orchestra. And includes Pachel Bell’s Canon.
5. How many trees do you put up?
One. Though we did two one year…my sweet hubby decorated a tree in diet coke cans and pictures one year. I LOVE<3 Love <3 diet coke. It was super fun to have that one. This year honestly, it doesn’t feel like Christmas is just around the corner. Who knows when we will do a tree.
