Candy cane of jingle bell drink stirrers?

Candy Cane (especially Hersey Mint Chocolate ones)

Regular or curling ribbon? :christmastree:

Mistletoe
12-31-2020, 03:01 AM
Bishop- did you and your wife wait until after breakfast to open gifts when you were kids?

By saying regular ribbon, do you mean the fabric type ribbon? I do both. But, due to the fact that we've been doing only gifts that fit in the stockings the last few years, it's usually curling ribbon, since it's not as bulky on the smaller gifts.

Single color lights outside (like all red or all green, etc), or multi-color?

Bishop1954
01-02-2021, 07:08 PM
In my house we did, in hers they did it the night before (when all the family was young of course). :reindeer2:

I use some single color, but most is multi...

ice skating on an indoor rink or outside?

Bishop1954
01-04-2021, 01:46 PM
Growing up in Southern California, I am not much of a skater. But I do enjoy watching people have fun on the "outside" rinks... :elf3:

If you were doing just two colors on a tree, would you prefer red and green or blue and white? :elf3:

Mistletoe
01-14-2021, 04:51 AM
Red and green- I'm a sucker for traditional.

Pant color for your casual Christmas Eve gathering- red or green?

Bishop1954
01-14-2021, 04:00 PM
Hmmmmm... think I would have to go with Green... :xmaswink:

If you were to purchase your holiday bird ready to eat, would it be traditionally cooked or smoked?

At the Christmas dinner table- a Christmas cracker or a small gift?

Bishop1954
02-08-2021, 03:19 PM
I've never used Christmas crackers, but I think I'd like to go there... :santa:

If you were using a white tree... white or blue lights?

Mistletoe
02-15-2021, 04:32 AM
I think blue lights- I'm a sucker for color. I had to look up a white tree with white lights- I'm not sure I've ever seen that before. I like it- it reminds me of an ice tree.

Decorating the Christmas dinner table- if you could only choose one- green glassware or red glassware?

Bishop1954
02-15-2021, 02:16 PM
That would be a tough choice, but I'd say green. A bit easier on the eyes (especially if there are a lot of guests... lol) :christmasdinner:

If you were having a St. Patrick's dinner. Would your centerpiece be a shamrock burst or a leprechaun with a pot of gold (chocolate) coins?

BoyGirlStuff
02-15-2021, 03:32 PM

I like the blue lights, too. I'd never seen a white tree with white lights either -- and you're right, it does look like an ice tree.

Mistletoe
02-19-2021, 01:59 AM
I would say a shamrock burst, I think, for a dinner. But the leprechaun is fun.

For Christmas Eve- a white Christmas or clear roads for travel?

Bishop1954
02-24-2021, 02:09 PM
Since I rarely travel on Christmas Eve, I'll go with a snowy white... :xmaswink:

For a fun and relaxing day... at the beach or the park?

Bishop1954
04-12-2021, 09:25 PM
Spring or Summer? :waving:

Mistletoe
04-30-2021, 01:07 AM
To your first question- At the beach (the air seems so healthy there). And to your second- summer- I love the flowers of Spring, but I can do without the wind, rain and cool temps!

Ar Christmastime- a tea made out of warming spices or a spiced ginger ale?

Bishop1954
05-06-2021, 05:16 PM
Spiced Ginger Ale... :santasmile:

As you decorate packages... traditional bows or curly cues?

Mistletoe
05-07-2021, 12:37 AM
I think of curly cues as more birthday, etc, so I would say traditional bows (or fat ribbon tied in bows) for Christmas.

A Rudolph Christmas Village or a Precious Moments Christmas Village?
