Old school blogging: Holiday Edition

I saw this on Olive’s blog last week, and this cute little survey has been making the rounds since then, so I thought today might be a good time to play.

1 Holy Night or 8 Crazy Ones? (Do you Celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, both?)

Our family (my maiden family, I suppose you call it), celebrate Christmas, but the past few years, we’ve added a little bit of a New York touch.  When we were kids, all of our Jewish friends would get Chinese food and go to the movies on Christmas, so we started adopting this tradition to avoid the huge kitchen cleanup after.

Peppermint or Chocolate?

In a York Peppermint Patty, I’m going for both.  But generally, I hate for peppermint to be involved in anything other than my toothpaste.

Sing us into the Holiday Season, what is your favorite Carol this time of year?

I love the Jackson 5 Christmas album, and I’ve always loved their version of ‘Up on the Housetop’.  It’s so sassy!

Tell us about a Favorite Family or Personal Holiday Tradition.

I love eating Chinese Food and watching a Redbox with my family.  It’s very New York.  It’s very summer camp with my Jewish friends.   And it’s my favorite.

C’mon you remember your favorite  (Christmas, Hanukkah) gift, tell us all about it:

Debbie got me a Starbucks gift card last year for like $150.  I know people say gift cards are impersonal, but that gift was personally made for me.

That magical moment? (Your favorite scene from a Holiday movie…it’s okay if you have 2)

I love the scene from ‘Love Actually’ where…you know what?  Who am I kidding, that entire movie is like a delightful treat.

Kissing under the mistletoe?  Who do you hope is standing underneath (We know it’s normally your spouse, if it did not have to be, who would you choose?)

  1. Austin Samples.

But if for some reason the following people appeared under the mistletoe, I would have to take one for the team and accept that kiss.

  1. Denzel Washington
  2. Channing Tatum
  3. Adam Levine
  4. Will Smith



Swans a swimming, lords a leaping, golden rings; which gift of the 12 days of Christmas would you like most?

5 (rose) golden rings designed by Jeanine Payer, one of my favorite designers in the world, who is closing her doors come January 😦

Play Secret Santa, what inappropriate gift would you love to give this year?

I love making people uncomfortable.  I think I would love to send Austin Samples, my husband-to-be, sexy pictures of Justin Bieber.

Martha Stewart or the Grinch? What is your decorating style? (Pictures would be awesome!)

College chic.  As in, I have not decorated since the days of yore at Elon University with my dear roomie.  I think we had a little pink x-mas tree in our apartment.

What is ONE WORD that defines the holiday season for you? (Examples: Believe/Wonder/Bah Humbug?)

Family.  Food.

If Santa could assure its delivery, what’s the first thing on your holiday wish LIST?


Now your turn to do a little LiveJournal style blogging!
