Tag ~ You’re It * Christmas Style

Welcome to Tag ~ You’re It * Christmas Style!!
I got the joy of being tagged twice!  First from Carrie @ Frugal Foodie Mama and then from Dawn @ Dawn’s Disaster!
So, this game of tag has a Christmas twist. It’s sort of like those bloggy awards that are ever so fun to do, except with Christmas questions. 
So, here’s the deal-e-o:

1st: If you’ve been tagged, go on and get yourself a button.
2nd: Answer the questions that are asked of you.
3rd: Tag 5 bloggers that you love and adore.
4th: Ask your 5 bloggers 5 questions about their Christmas traditions.
So here we go…
First let me get to Carrie’s questions:
1. What makes Christmas such a special holiday for you and your family?
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday but it’s even better now that I have my daughter! I’m very excited for this year because she actually is at a point where she understands what’s going on & is excited about Santa & all of the lights and decorations.
2. Were you told the truth about Santa Claus by your parents or did you find out another way? And..do you plan on lying to your kids (if you have them or plan on having them)? Oh yes…I went there.
I honestly don’t remember how I found out the truth about Santa.  It was probably from my evil sister trying to be mean and destroy an innocent child.  Just kidding, love you sissy 😉
Yes, I plan on lying to my child.  That’s my right as a parent.

3. Real tree or Fake tree?
Fake, always been fake
4. Do you open presents on Christmas morning, Christmas Eve or both?
Growing up, we only opened presents Christmas morning.  That was a dad rule.  Now that I’m married & there are many more Christmas celebrations to be had we typically do end up opening presents with one of our families on Christmas Eve.
5. What is your favorite Christmas movie to watch? Favorite Christmas song to sing or listen to? ( I know…technically two questions.)
Favorite Christmas movie is & probably always will be How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  Favorite Christmas song I would probably have to say is “Mary did you know”, not a traditional carol but a song I grew up hearing my mom sing & I like it.

Now to Dawn’s questions:
1~What tradition does your family partake in that is unique to your family?
Growing up my dad always bought a ‘no-name’ gift.  It was always my favorite gift to look for.  It was typically a gift for the whole family, one year I think my sister & I got our Nintendo as the no-name gift.  As my daughter gets older I plan to keep the tradition for my family.

2~What is your favorite Christmas dessert/treat?
I’m all for the cookies at Christmas.  Or homemade Chex Mix.
3~Do you enjoy egg nog? Spiked or regular?
I honestly don’t believe I have ever had egg nog.  But I’m pretty sure I would prefer it spiked.
4~What is your favorite Christmas song? I only semi-stole this questions, since it was technically the 6th of Lanaya/Kera’s questions.
Going to again have to say “Mary Did You Know”
5~Is there usually snow on the ground by you for Christmas?
No.  We’re lucky if we actually have to wear a jacket on Christmas.  If we’re going to get snow during the winter, it typically likes to screw with us & show up around Valentine’s Day.
