12 Questions of Christmas

What is your favorite Christmas film?  
- A Christmas Story

Have you ever had a white Christmas?  
- Yes, I have.  Many, ranging from the most minute dusting to 10+ inches of snow.

Where do you usually spend the holiday?  
- I alternate between my home in Kentucky and my childhood home in West Virginia.

What is your favorite Christmas song?  
- Carol of the Bells and O, Holy Night.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?  
- It all depends on where I am.  If I'm with my husband's family, then...  maybe. We sometimes participate in a gift exchange.  If I'm with my family in WV, then yes.  We open presents at my grandparents' house.  My parents and I exchange gifts on Christmas morning, though.

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?  
- Yes, I can...  with a little melodic intonation of course.

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?  
- I always look forward to the first or second day of my Christmas break, when I spend all day watching my favorite Christmas movies.  It's my personal tradition.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?  
- Fake

What is your all-time favorite Christmas food?
- My family is one of the few that I know who has turkey (in addition to ham) for Christmas.  I really enjoy turkey and dumplings even thought they are not only for Christmas.  (In my family, they are considered "holiday food.")

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving presents more?
- It depends.  When I received a great gift, one that completely takes me me by surprise, I love that feeling.  But, I also love the feeling of giving the perfect gift to someone else, one that takes them completely by surprise.

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
- Hawaii.  Seriously.  I've plenty of white Christmases, so I'd like to try out a tropical destination and go around all day saying, "Mele Kalikimaka."

Are you a professional wrapper or do you fail miserably?  
- Um, I've average.  I do pretty well, if I do say so myself, but I'm by no means a professional.

Hope this finds you having a wonderful holiday season!


  1. They're doing that live on TV, with Matthew Broderick.

    Anyway, I like the Grinch one.

    1. Yes, I saw that (that they were going to do a live version). I was a little bit intrigued, but not enough to watch. Sometimes, I just feel that you shouldn't muck with a classic.

      Which Grinch? The original cartoon or the one with Jim Carey?
