Naughty or Nice Series: Dear Santa!

Hey! Everyone! I'm starting a series of all the "Christmas Themed" posts I'll be doing. It might include things from tags to fashion. The first one is a tag called: Dear Santa. I saw Life of a Sweetaholic post it and it looked really cool. Here goes:

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? 
Hot chocolate! I'm not a big fan of eggnog. 

Does Santa wrap presents or just puts them under the tree?
Well, technically, the elves wrap the presents. BUT- yes, Santa does wrap them!

Colored or white lights on tree/house? 
Colored lights on the tree and white lights on the house.

Do you hang mistletoe?
 Yes, we hang mistletoe on the roof above our front door entry porch.

When do you put your decorations up?
My family starts getting the decorations out on Thanksgiving. We pretty much have everything set out aside from stockings within a week after that. 

 What is your favorite holiday dish? 
It has always been a tradition of prime rib on Christmas Eve. 

Favorite holiday memory? 
My favorite holiday memory is waking up and hurriedly waking up my sister and parents and rushing downstairs to the tree!

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
NO!!!! It might be usual for some families, but in mine, it's a no-no. They all look tempting, but we wait to open them all on Christmas Day. 

How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? 
The lights on the tree are yellow/whitish, red, and green. There are an arrangements of hundreds of ornaments. There are also frills and glitter sticks all with one giant sparkly tree topper. It's all out.

Snow! Love it or dread it? 
I like it if it truly is pure snow. I'm not a fan of when it's just frosty. I like it when it's pure snow so that you can ski, sled, and do all the other snow festivities. 

Can you ice skate? 
I'm not an olympiate- but, I am pretty good at ice skating.

Do you remember your favorite gift? 
I don't think I have a favorite, it's so hard to decide! 

What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? 
The most important thing is having a good time with your family and loved ones. And to also remember that the joy comes from giving not receiving.

What's your favorite holiday dessert? 
Peppermint Bark!

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Location is a place we change regularly for the holidays. Some things that we always do are: make homemade pancakes after opening presents, stockings come last, parents presents first, presents from santa last. 

What tops your tree? 
An arrangement of sparkly decor. 

Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?
I love giving because you get to either shop or create something that someone else will (hopefully!) enjoy. There is a part of me that enjoys receiving for the fun of it as well :)

Candy canes... yuck or yum!?
YUM! Especially dipped in hot chocolate!

Favorite Christmas show?
I don't think I watch shows made specifically for Christmas. I do like watching the movies that they play on ABC Family: 25 Days 'Till Christmas.
Saddest Christmas Song:
I don't think I've heard one that's sad. I mean, some are slower, or softer, but non that are tear worthy. Have you heard one? 

Feel free to try this tag out and leave a link below! It made me get into the spirit and think all about the holidays! XOXO Charlotte
