*ok, this is favorite gift was an empty box from my mom. My cousins and all got to choose just 1 gift from under the tree for Christmas Eve night and my mom worked overtime to get us to open hers....we finally agreed, opened it discover an empty box. My mom yelled "oh, you're letting it escape!"....after a long time of trying to figure it out, she told us it was a "toot" she had wrapped up....might sound gross...but it was HILARIOUS and we still laugh about it today!

10. Favorite holiday pastime
*My mom and I didn't have much money when I was growing up, so each year we would decorate the tree with popcorn balls. We would make them in lots of different colors, wrap them individually, and hang them with ribbon & a bow..they were beautiful! PLus, then you have the bonus of "eating ornaments". This is a holiday tradition I will continue forever.
