Tagged again

I thought to be immune because, after the last infections, I presumed to have built a good immunitary system, but I was wrong.
Now I am here, infected again, by Lady jeanne.
Let’s go:
1. Egg nog or hot chocolate? Swiss chocolate.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped, what a pity! You don’t know how boring it is!
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Colored lights everywhere.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? Of course. But I am very selective with the persons to kiss……
5. When do you put your decorations up? Never, that is my wife’s job.
6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Lasagna.
7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? When we were many many persons to celebrate the holidays all together.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Please tell me if I know something of wrong….please please. Is he not from Lapponia?
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Never because my wife hides everything.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Ask to my lady cat, she uses to check everything…….in every moment.
11. Snow! Love it or dread it? What is snow?
12. Can you ice skate? The only ice I can see is into my refrigerator.
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Every gift, given by the heart, is favorite.
14. What's the most important thing about the holidays for you? To forget my office.
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? Panettone.
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Ahahah running of course.
17. What tops your tree? A decoration of glass.
18. Which do you prefer, giving or receiving? Difficult to say. It depends by the persons you give or get.
19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Too much to write but I like the christmas atmosphere.
20. Candy canes? What is this?
21. Favorite Christmas movie? Mmmmmmmm
22. What do you leave for Santa? I am Santa!
Please forgive me but I must tag someone or Lady jeanne will kill me. So the unlucky bloggers are: Tammy, D, Pat, and TryAthlete.


  1. Lasagna?! Why didn't I ever think of that. And it sounds like your wife deserves a very big kiss under that mistletoe for doing all the decorating!

    Have a wonderful Christmas, Stefano!

  2. I especially like your answers to #7 and #13. But I'm sorry to break the news about Santa--he lives in the North Pole!

    Merry Christmas to you and your Queen.

  3. Panettone is for dessert? Hmmm... one of my favorite Christmas traditions is eating toasted panettone for breakfast. I guess we'll just call that a decidedly American twist on an Italian tradition.

  4. Oh no, I'm tagged! Merry Christmas BK.

  8. we used to have lasagna when I was growing up! and pannetone, too! (My Italian father.)

    You are too funny! I don't know what that question is about santa, either.

    Immunity does not work, tryathlete!

    Buon Natale, Stefano!

  9. Oh dear santa, bring me more gold and chocolate.

  10. Have a Merry Christmas!

    Pretend it's made of peppermint hard sugar candy, with red stripes.

    They are very pretty as decorations on christmas trees. And then you can EAT them while you put the other decorations away.
