So, how about you?

That´s what Wendy asked, so I answer. :D

Hot chocolate or egg nog: Hot chocolate, egg nog is unheard of here.

Does Santa wrap the presents or just set them under the tree: wrapped, no fancy tags now or the kids would recognize my style.

Colored or white lights on the tree/house: coloured on tree, white outside. Only one string around the main door.

Do you hang mistletoe: No.

When do you decorate: it is traditional in Argentina to put your trees and deccies up on Virgin Mary´s Day. That is December the 8th.

What is your favorite Holiday Dish: Pan Dulce. That is a sweet bread with raisins and almonds on top.

Favorite holiday memory as child: all my uncles knew how to play instruments and we gathered with the across the street neighbours who knew how to play too for an informal dance in the middle of the street. Then we´d go to the river side to see the sun come up eating pastries.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa: Can´t remeber my age but I can remember when my parents summoned me. I was so relieved it wasn´t an unexpected scolding that I didn´t mind about Santa.

What kind of cookies do you set out for Santa on Christmas Eve - cinnamon.

Snow - love it or hate it: Love it.

Can you ice skate? No.

Do you remember your favorite gift? Too many to mention.

what is the most important thing about the holidays for you: the fun putting up the tree, the hope in the kids eyes, the family gatherings.

What is your favorite holiday desert? Plain almonds.

What is your favorite holiday tradition: putting the little heart in our tree together. It is the first ornament to go up and the last to go down. Also the cookies baking that we started last year.

Do you prefer giving or receiving? Both. I love shopping. :D

What is your favorite Xmas carol? I can hum most of them.

Candy canes, Yuck or Yum? Yum.
