B L D No. 4
Do you prefer eggnog or hot chocolate? I prefer eggnog because it is the only time I have it, I can have hot chocolate any time of the year. I also like my eggnog mixed with milk so that it is not too thick.
Do you hang mistletoe? No, but I think I will this year. I never really knew what it was but I did have a decoration that had Santa on one side and Ms. Claus on the other and there was a piece of green plastic with some red balls on it and I hung that up for years. I used to think it looked really nice. When Wahid came in the house I would say in front of the kids (for their enjoyment) ‘Oh we’re under the mistletoe, we better kiss.’ He would give his perfunctory kiss and the kids would laugh.
When or how did you learn there was no Santa? I grew up in a house with nothing but magic and the magic was only intensified at Christmas where Santa came every year and visited. So I saw him and he always came so I can state without a doubt that there is a Santa Claus. So when people try to tell you otherwise just whisper in their ears that they are dumb shits.
What tops your tree? For years it was a little angel I bought when we first got married. It came from Canadian Tire. The last few years the angel has been replaced with a beautiful green, Dr. Seuss type ornament.
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Of course he wraps presents, there is a whole department located in the North Pole where their job is exclusively wrapping presents.
