It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.



1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Neither. It's not traditional for Australians to drink egg nog at Christmas and it's too friggin hot to drink hot chocolate. :P


2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?

He wraps them.


3. Coloured lights on tree/house or white?

Coloured.


4. Do you hang mistletoe?

Nope, but maybe we should start.


5. When do you put your decorations up?

Sometime during November. I don't believe in silly superstitions.


6. What is your favourite holiday dish?

Anything that includes potatoes.


7. Favourite Holiday memory as a child?

Sneaking out to sleep underneath the Christmas tree at night.


8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?

I can't remember when exactly but it was probably in year one. I can remember this girl teasing basically my entire year one class about the fact that we all still believed in Santa. What a bitch! :P


9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?

Whilst not a typical Australian tradition I did manage to convince my Mother to let us open just one present on Christmas Eve for the past two Christmases. Hopefully I can convince her to let us do so this year as well. :D


10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?

Since this year is our first time decorating our Christmas tree as a couple we opted for simple, cheap, red and gold decorations that we wouldn't mind replacing later on down the track. We also made sure that our tree was fibre optic so we wouldn't have to worry about Christmas lights.


11. Snow! Love it or dread it?

Well considering it's summer in Australia at Christmas time a little bit of snow would be very much appreciated. :P


12. Can you ice skate?

I've never tried.


13. Do you remember your favourite gift as a child?

Hmm, not really. I remember getting excited over a Britney Spears barbie doll though. :P


14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?

Being with the ones I love the most.


15. What is your favourite holiday dessert?

Pavlova.


16. What is your favourite holiday tradition?

Waking up early and opening my stocking whilst I waited for my parent/s to get out of bed.


17. What tops your tree?

A gold star.


18. Which do you prefer, giving or receiving?

When I have the money, I prefer giving. This year though I wouldn't mind receiving.


19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? 

 Yum!


20. What is your favourite Christmas movie?

'Love Actually' or 'Home Alone'.
