I saw this at Sue's blog:

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Egg Nog...non-alcoholic, mixed with milk so it's not as rich

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

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White on tree…no lights on house - too much work!

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope

5. When do you put up your decorations? Sometime before Christmas, LOL. This year I have being putting a few things out at a time, starting with the Advent calendar on Dec 1st, then some tabletop decorations over the weekend. The tree will probably go up next weekend.
