Christmas Awesome Stuff Survey

So if you follow my blog, you know by now that I'm a little bit obsessed with Christmas. Which is why when I saw this excellent Christmas survey on Janae's blog, The Hungry Runner Girl (which is my most favorite blog to read by the way), I just had to join in on the fun. If you've never read Janae's blog before, head over and check it out now... or as soon as you're done reading this post!

1.  Favorite Christmas Album/CD/Song?

Brad Paisley's Christmas album is my absolute fave, followed closely by the Glee Christmas CD.

2.  Run on Christmas morning or take the day off?

Definitely run! I can't wait to run in Mexico on Christmas this year (It'll be weird not to have to  trek through the snow!)

3.  What do you usually eat on Christmas morning?

Sounds super strange, but we have my mom's Swedish pancakes with a side of chips and dip. Only on Christmas morning!

4.  Favorite holiday or Christmas tradition?

Dad and Grandpa getting ready for the game!
 I have so many, it's hard to pick just one..  I always look forward to watching the IIHF World Junior Tournament that starts on Boxing Day with my family each year. We get really into it, even Will who doesn't really like hockey will sit down and watch the games with me (Go Canada!!)

5.  Real tree, fake tree or no tree?

Will gets really into cutting down trees

Real for sure!! Going out to cut down a tree is one of my favorite Christmas Activities! We usually have a bonfire, and go sledding if there is enough snow.

6.  Christmas pajamas… yay or nay?

Most definitely!

7.  Where do you spend the holidays?  Your own house, your parents’ house, extended family, in-laws, friends?

We spend part of the day with my family and part with Will's family. That's the beauty of having parents living in the same town!!

8.  Food that you always have during the holiday season?  Favorite Christmas food/treat?

Sugar cookies
 My mom goes on a baking spree at Christmas each year, I'd have to say my faves are coconut macaroons, and nuts and bolts. I also love sugar cookies!!

9. Open presents all at once or take turns?  Stockings… yes or no?

My stocking is my favorite part of Christmas morning! When we were little we opened our presents all at once, but the last few years we have been taking turns.

10.  Favorite Christmas(ish) movie?

I think I answered this on in the last Christmas Survey I did, but I would have to say Elf, Rudolph, and the cartoon version on The Grinch! I just bought Polar Express today, I've never seen it so I'm excited to watch it!!

Rudolph will always be my very favorite!!

Do you watch the World Junior Tournament?
What's your favorite family Christmas tradition?
