all about me!

NAME: Elizabeth/eBeth/Beth/Bethie/artemis/artie/Fuzzy-butt depending on who you ask.....

Q:Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
A:Hot Chocolate, bonus points if you slip in a little Bailey's or Godiva chocolate liqour

Q:Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
A:When I was a kid Santa wrapped the stocking stuffers and the 'big' stuff was unwrapped. Now Santa sends all the gifts wrapped since we don't have kids so he doesn't make a special trip

Q:Colored lights on tree/house or white?
A:I prefer white, my husband prefers colored so we'll try those next year

Q:Do you hang mistletoe?
A:I would, if I could find some...

Q:When do you put your decorations up?
A:Normally start the day after Thanksgiving, but this year we did it the Sunday before

Q:What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
A:hrm that's a tough one for me....but my husband's favorite holiday dish is his aunt's breakfast casserole that we eat on Christmas morning!

Q:Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
A:All my childhood memories as a child are great ones, but one of the strongest is putting poinsettias at my grandfather's grave on Christmas Eve one year and Mom not letting me and my brother get out of the car since it was snowing

Q:When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
A:I was entirely too curious as a child and found all the gifts, then asked my parents why they weren't under the tree!

Q:Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
A:We exchange gifts with my (maternal) grandmother's entire family on Christmas Eve, as a kid we'd also get to exchange one gift each once we got home but we got the rest from Santa. Now we open them whenever we feel like it, in between all the other gift exchange activities on Christmas Eve and Day

Q:How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
A:I have one small tree on the screened in patio that is decorated in all owls and pinecones (CHI OMEGA through and through). The big 'family' tree is rapidly becoming filled with ornaments we've picked out together, picked up on vacation, etc that all hold great meaning to us as a couple

Q:Snow! Love it or Dread it?
A:Nice to look at while falling, but if it sticks for more than a day I lose my shit

Q:Can you ice skate?
A:Yes and no....I can stay up on skates (but not go backwards) but the ice makes me break out in a rash if it touches my skin so I haven't been in years

Q:Do you remember your favorite gift?
A:As a kid, my microscope and chemistry set (yes, I was a geek even then)

Q:What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
A:Spending time with family and friends, and catching the classic animated Christmas specials on cable ;)

Q:What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
A:Chocolate...but that's a year round thing

Q:What is your favorite holiday tradition?
A:Listening to Christmas music, driving around looking at the lights, wrapping all the tiny stocking stuffer presents so my husband has to open each single one

Q: What tops your tree?
A:A red/green/gold plaid bow (I made years ago) and a gold wire star (new this year)

Q:Which do you prefer giving or Receiving?
A:Giving, though receiving is pretty darned cool too!

Q:What is your favorite Christmas Song?
A:O Holy Night or Carol Of The Bells

Q:Candy Canes...
A:Not a fan (don't like peppermint nor hard candy!)
