B L D No. 10
Do you have coloured lights or white lights on your tree or house? We have probably had the same coloured lights on our tree for over 30 years. We have three strings of lights and a small twinkling set that we place near the top of the tree. Wahid is the one who does the lights and I am always yelling in the background to hide the cord within the branches. Some years it has looked like the lights are just sitting on top of the tree.
Outside the house we have white lights that I hired a handyman to hook-up one year. Wahid was kinda pissed because I would ask him every year and it never got done, so I thought ‘I want those lights and I’m getting them.’ Cost me 80 doll hairs but it is worth it.
What is your favourite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? This is a no brainer for me. Stuffing, especially the way my Dad makes it. I want some right now. God, could you lend us back our Dad as he has a Christmas dinner to prepare.
Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes, if I’m lucky enough to get one. Some years I haven’t. Christmas Eve is spent at my parents with all the extended family and so there are a lot of gifts getting exchanged for godchildren and grandkids.
Do you ice-skate? When I was younger I skated all of the time. There is a hockey arena just around the corner from where we lived and my parents had bought a family pass (yes, we got our moneys worth). We skated all of the time. When Angelique and Nadalene were small I took them and my ankles killed me in less than ½ a second. By the time Nathan came I never even made the attempt.
Candy canes, yuck or yum? Yum…. I like them, but don’t love them. I think I like looking at them way more than eating them.
