  1. Which holidays do you celebrate (Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza)?  Hanukkah and Christmas.  We do not give gifts for Hanukkah, just Christmas.
  2. What is your favorite holiday movie (non animated)?  The Christmas Card
  3. What is your favorite holiday movie that is animated?  Arthur but a close second is Prep and Landing
  4. What was your favorite gift that you received for Hanukkah or Christmas? These great earrings I got last year.
  5. Real tree or fake?  I love the smell of a real tree, but hate the needles dropping and the hassel of having to put on Christmas lights.  Definately fake.
  6. White or Colored lights on the tree?  Or do you have a method to your madness?  There is a method to my madness.  I love white lights on formal trees that are set to match the decor.  But I love colored lights on the family tree that has the collection of ornaments the family has received every year at Christmas.
  7. Do you have any special holiday traditions?  Please share them all.  Every year we give each member of the family a Christmas ornament.  Eventually, when we have kids and they have their first place, we plan to buy a ornament organizer and give them all their ornaments to put on their tree.  We also decorate for Christmas 6 weeks before Christmas.  We wait until the Fri or Sat after Thanksgiving to decorate the outside of the house.  We go for a drive every year looking at Christmas lights.
  8. Do you decorate the outside of your house?  Yes.  It is basic right now.  We are starting to collect decorations for different holidays.  
  9. Are you going to a holiday party or are you throwing a holiday party?  Right now no.
  10. Do you have a favorite cocktail for Hanukkah or Christmas?  Chocolate Martini
