6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
Goodness me I am going to go with desserts, especially gingerbread cookies, I love to bake 'em and eat 'em
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
My Grandpa coming in dressed as Santa and giving us little cousins all these Orphan Annie coloring gizmos that looked like etch a sketches. I loved that thing :)
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
Not sure when, but I was older than most and was handed a book to read that told the truth. And it mentioned something about not ruining it for others. After that I was even more excited to get to stay up late and wrap the santa gifts and got to help surprise the rest of the siblings. Only to find out later they already knew but didn't want the presents to dwindle! So now we all play santa for eachother.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Yes, one gift.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
Bulbs first, heavy ones to the middle of the strong branches, and sparkly glass ones by the lights, and we rarely get rid of an ornament handmade or given so it is a full tree alrighty.
