Stolen from Neil

  1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? mmm egg nog. Only ever had it twice, but I remember it being quite yummy, and somewhat potent :)
  2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? I often just sit presents under the tree for a while because they look more interesting before they're wrapped. Then at some point the inbound ones get put away and the outbound ones get wrapped.
  3. Coloured lights or white on tree/house? Coloured. I'm a firm believer in the addage "you can never have too many fairy lights"
  4. Do you hang mistletoe? No
  5. When do you put your decorations up? The fairy lights in my study I often put up early November and they stay up til about February. The tree goes up at the beginning of December, usually the first weekend
  6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Roast pork with gravy, apple sauce and *crackling*
  7. Favourite holiday memory as a child? Favourite? Dunno.. Probably putting up the tree and lights each year
  8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Don't rememeber
  9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No
  10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Lots of bright shiny coloured things :)
  11. Snow, love it or dread it? I love snow. But then I've never had to live with it. And white Christmases here? I think they had one in Hobart one year .. :)
  12. Do you know how to ice skate? Yup, it's fun. Never gone skating on a real lake though
  13. Do you remember your favourite gift? Sheesh, hard questions ;) Our bikes one year were pretty cool. And getting my own double tape deck/radio when I was about 16 was cool too.
  14. What�s the most important thing about the holidays for you? Being with family I suppose. Christmas is for family, New Years is for friends. I got pretty depressed for several years when I had no friends to celebrate New Years with
  15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? I like baked fruit pies - things like apricot or blueberry danishes and the like
  16. What is your favourite holiday tradition? Dunno about favourite, but one I've enjoyed over many years, is watching the Carols by Candlelight on Christmas eve. The most memorable of those was the year I'd been swimming for a week straight with plaited hair and no brushing it in between. We watched the carols for *hours* while my parents painstakingly removed all the knots out of my hair
  17. What tops your tree? A 15-fairy light electric star - way cool :)
  18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Well I'm pretty crap at both. I'm crap at thinking up what to get people, and I'm impossible to buy for too.
  19. Favourite Christmas Song? Probably Hark the Herald Angels Sing. Or Angels we have Heard on High (the tune - I don't even know the words!). Or Handel's Hallelujah chorus.
  20. Favourite flavour of Candy Canes? Mint. Anything else seems wrong somehow.

My brother and I made egg nog once that was so potent it was hard to drink ... the first cup, anyway.
