After 6 days spent home on the couch, I am finally starting to feel a little better. I’m certainly not 100% yet, but since Wednesday when I picked up a prescription for antibiotics I’ve slowly started to join the real world again.
Since I’ve done absolutely nothing note-worthy this week except watch LOST re-runs I thought I’d share a Christmas quiz that Hungry Runner Girl came up with. Being sick sort of zapped my Christmas spirit so I’m hoping to rekindle it over the next 10 days starting with this quiz.
1. Favorite Christmas album/CD/song?
My favorite CD, and the only Christmas CD I own, is Mariah Carey’s 2nd Christmas album.
But my favorite individual song is probably Silent Night or any of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra instrumental pieces.
2. Run on Christmas morning or take the day off?
Depends on what day I do my long run. Since August and I will be traveling all day the Saturday before Christmas there’s a good chance my long run will get pushed back to Christmas eve which means Christmas morning would become a definite rest day.
3. What do you usually eat on Christmas morning?
Strata and homemade coffee cake.
4. Favorite holiday or Christmas tradition?
I love that every year on Christmas eve we were each given one gift and it was always pajamas and a book. And after opening our one gift we would drive around and look at Christmas lights. Can’t miss out on the house that coordinates its lights with music!
5. Real tree, fake tree, or no tree?
Every year growing up we would go cut down our own tree. We always had a propensity for trees that were as wide as they were tall and looked more like a Christmas bush which my mom absolutely hated. Since living on my own I’ve only had a fake tree but I’m hoping to change that next year.
6. Christmas pajamas…yay or nay?
Can’t go wrong with Christmas pj’s.
7. Where do you spend the holidays? Your own house, your parent’s house, extended family, in-laws, friends?
Just like last year, August and I will be driving the 1,200 miles to my parent’s house in Kentucky. Thankfully August seems perfectly willing to do this for the foreseeable future.
8. Favorite food you always have during the holiday season? Favorite Christmas food/treat?
I love our Christmas eve dinner which consists of a bunch of appetizers like oyster stew, shrimp cocktail, mini sandwiches, and a cheese ball. The oyster stew is probably my favorite though because my mom only makes it once a year.
9. Open presents all at once or take turns?
My mom always wants for us to take turns but we always end up opening them all at once.
10. Favorite Christmas movie?
Love Actually, Home Alone, and Christmas Vacation.
