happy christmas to you all

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? egg nog if it is home made. i hate the eggnog from a carton

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? anything appetizer related. i love brie and cranberry in phyllo pastry...mmmmm

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? i don't know that i have a favourite...they are all pretty good. but if i have to choose, it would be waking up in the middle of the night, going to the door of my room and feeling the weight of my stocking against the door as i pushed it open. i would then bring the stocking to my bed and open it for the first time. once my sister was up, i'd open it for a second time and show her, then once my mum was up, it would get opened for the third time.
