1. Egg Nog, apple cider, or Hot Chocolate? AC

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrap

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Little white ones on the tree.
And those candle lights in the windows.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? No

5. When do you put your decorations up? Thanksgiving weekend

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Nothing comes
to mind.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? My Dad made a doll bed for me.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Don't remember but I bet my oldest brother let the cat out of the bag just to see my reaction!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Since my government job
afforded me the opportunity to travel I have ornaments from all over the world that I use plus lots of lighthouse ornaments. Strings of small white lights. No tinsel or garlands...too much trouble getting that stuff off later.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? LOVE IT

12. Can you ice skate? Yes

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Any of the home made things from
Mom and Dad...we were so poor. And the Tiny Tears Doll from Grandparents that came in a light blue suitcase with extra clothes and other items.

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? This is such a tough question for me...My Dad was dying of cancer at Christmas time 1972
and all of the family got together knowing it would be his last one. Ever since, Christmas is really hard for me and I prefer to spend it alone so I don't let my sadness affect others. That doesn't really answer the question does it?

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? It's sort of a cake but I don't know what it's called. You layer vanilla wafers, vanilla pudding, sliced bananas about 3 to 4 layers high. Smother it with real whip creamfor the icing. Egads, I just gained 2 lbs writing that.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Pickled herring on New Year's Eve

17. What tops your tree? A lighthouse of course

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? I love giving and seeing the
reactions...hopefully they are good reactions!

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? All I Want For Christmas Is My
Two Front Teeth

20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? Sometimes yum, but mostly yuck.
