Hot chocolate. I only had eggnog once and it was good, but nothing beats hot chocolate.
Neither. The wrapped, under-the-tree presents are from cousins, grandparents, sisters and my parents. Santa fills our stockings and leaves our gifts out in the open for us to see when we go into the living room.
Any Christmas lights are good Christmas lights. (This year I found out Jorge dislikes multi-colored lights. Very disappointing.)
Not me or anyone in my family.
Beginning of December.
My mom’s Christmas breakfast sausage and cheese casserole and venison sliders (thanks Jared!)
Opening presents is always the best part. Not so much the presents, but watching everyone open theirs and laughing with the family.
Only at the occasional family get together with aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.
Jorge and I don’t have one because we’re never home on Christmas Day, but at my parents’ house it’s usually multi-colored lights and all of our family ornaments. Used to have an angel on top until it was destroyed by tree sap. Now they use a gold star.
Love. (Then again I don’t have to live in it, so I might be biased.)
Barely, but yes.
Probably an iPod classic Santa brought me 5 years ago. I may be the only person left in the world with an iPod classic, but that baby is still going strong! My sister gave me a hand-made photo album years ago that I still have as well. Bottom line, there have been many.

17. what tops your tree?
Both! Right now I’m more excited about seeing my family open their gifts from me, but once the gifts are opened I love playing with my new toys!
YUMMY! Especially traditional peppermint.
We used to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer every year.
Blue Christmas (Like Ang said) is the only sad one I can think of right now. Jorge thinks Carol of the Bells is very eerie.

This will be my last pre-Christmas post because I’m leaving for home TOMORROW! With Jorge! So incredibly excited.
Feliz Navidad to all of my readers. Thanks so much for your love and support.
