1. When do you decorate?
We put our tree up the weekend before Thanksgiving this year, but waited to do the outdoor decorations until the weekend after. My husband has to work Black Friday and the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so it's hard to do all decorations that weekend. Here's our tree:
2 Elf or no elf?
No elf; I don't have kids and I teach high school, so I really have no use for one.
3. Christmas cookies or no baking for you?
I think we're baking cookies next weekend--likely just some sugar cookies that we decorate with icing and sprinkles. What I REALLY love is when other people bake Christmas cookies and I eat them.
4. Favorite holiday tradition?
Ever since we've been married, my husband and I (and now our dog) pack up in the car Christmas Eve night with some coffee or hot cocoa and drive around listening to Christmas tunes while looking at the neighborhood lights all around our city.
5. Favorite Christmas movie?
Hard question, but I think it's gotta be:
6. Snow or no snow?
I don't mind a little snow on Christmas Day, but otherwise, no snow!
7. Favorite Christmas song?
("Christmas Eve Sarajevo" by TSO)
8. Favorite gifts to give and get?
On my list this year was a right hand ring from my husband, a Tory Burch purse, and gift cards for clothes.
I am horrible at buying for other people! And my husband reads here, so I don't want to spoil his gifts :)
