Hot chocolate. Although apple cider is good this time of year too.
Does Santa wrap presents or set them under the tree?
when I was a kid, he sat them on the sofas. (one sofa for me, one for my sister) at mom’s house. At dad’s, they are always wrapped–generally in the sunday funny papers, and quite often “trick” wrapped.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
One Easter a cousin told me that the Bunny was fake. I asked my mom if it was the truth, and she confessed. “What about the tooth fairy?” she nodded. “And Santa too??” she nodded. “And what about Jesus?” she slapped me. (I’m just kidding, I don’t think she really slapped me)

How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Carols playing, a scattering of curse words, and the past couple years–in shorts and a t shirt!

Can you ice skate?
I tried once or twice. I managed to balance, even move forward a bit, all while holding my arms straight out and doing the “helicopter” dance. My ankles ached for weeks afterward
