I saw this Holiday Favorites survey on Julie‘s blog the other day and thought it looked like a lot of fun. I love the holidays in a big way, so here are my responses to the questions. Feel free to share some of your favorites in the comment section. Happy holidays, friends!!

Favorite Holiday Cookie

I actually have a new favorite holiday cookie: Andes Crème De Menthe Cookies. I made them for Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit with my family, so I’m planning to make them again for a couple of upcoming Christmas get-togethers. They’re basically thick sugar cookies with hunks of mint and chocolate. Is there anything better?


Favorite Holiday Song

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It always reminds me of Love Actually (a Christmas movie favorite) and puts the biggest smile on my face. It also makes me want to dance for some reason. I love this song so much, my Pandora has been set to the “Mariah Carey – ”˜All I Want for Christmas Is You’” station since Thanksgiving Day, and I’ve pretty much listened to it non-stop.

Favorite Holiday Movie

It’s a toss up between Home Alone and Elf, but, after much thought, I’m going with Elf. It just cracks me up so much! “SANTA! I know him!” I lose it every time.


Favorite Holiday Tradition

I’ve really loved doing 24 Days of Togetherness with Mal, so that’s my (new) favorite holiday tradition. I know it’s only the first year we’ve done it, but I’m positive we’ll keep it up for many years to come!


Favorite Holiday Breakfast

Every Christmas morning for as long as I can remember, my mom, sister, and I eat Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns for breakfast. Even though our plans have changed throughout the years,  we always manage to eat cinnamon buns together on Christmas.


Favorite Holiday Meal

The Christmas Eve buffet at my grandmother’s (or aunt’s) house is my favorite holiday meal. My family likes to try new recipes, so there’s always fun and interesting dishes as well as old standbys from years past. And, of course, there’s always a million desserts, so I usually leave with a happy, stuffed belly.


Favorite Person to Shop For

My mom and sister. I typically buy them a mix of practical and ridiculous/funny presents, so it’s always fun to watch them open them.


Favorite Way to Open Presents

Stockings first with coffee in hand and then presents! We’re big into stocking stuffers!


Favorite Tree Topper

Well, Mal and I actually don’t have a tree topper. We’ve had 7 Christmas trees together now, but have yet to buy one. Maybe this year will be the year we actually do. We just need to decide between an angel or star or something else?

What tops your Christmas tree?
