Aloha,

I’d really appreciate some new shorts for work. I have to wear button downs and they add up after a while. Wishing you the best for your holidays!

Forum: How did you find out Santa wasn't real?
Aloha Becky,

I'm not sure how old I was, it was definitely early elementary school, but I was hanging with my older brother during the summer months. We rode our bikes to his friends house and started talking about Christmas somehow...long story short I told him how we saw Santa on our roof last year at Christmas. He said "that's impossible, Santa isn't real". I didn't believe him, at the time I thought he was just saying that because he was jealous we saw him and he didn't. Well, my brother was not having it! He rushed us home and called my mom into one of the bedrooms to talk with her. I continued about my day like nothing happened. She played it off like he was just being silly. The next Christmas, my mom told me and was crying as she did. She said she was sorry someone ruined the surprise so early for me. I think she was more hurt than I was!

Thanks for the forum.

Forum: Casual Or Dressy Holiday Dinners?
Aloha Thankful,

My family doesn't really have a set "dress code" you can dress up or down, however you are feeling. The one exception is Christmas... Christmas Eve is our big celebration, so we have our big dinner and exchange gifts that night. Everyone is dressed up that night for dinner. Christmas Day is more laid back for us. We open "Santa" gifts and relax most of the day eating leftovers.

Thanks for the forum.

Subject: Re: Do you like the flavor of Gingerbread?

Forum: Do you like the flavor of Gingerbread?
Aloha Becky,

I have become more open to gingerbread as I'm getting older. As a kid all the way through high school I wouldn't even try anything gingerbread flavored. I think there are definitely some gingerbread products (much like some pumpkin spice products) that just go overboard with the spices. It is a huge turn off for me. I like more subtle notes of flavor. So basically, I will try gingerbread flavored things but I am very cautious not to take too big of a mouthful. Usually gingerbread cookies are ok, probably because they are cookies so loaded with sugar, but still. This Sunday I will be going to a friends house to make gingerbread houses. Hope I buy a kit that's not too spicy :P

Thanks for the forum.

Forum: Decorate your room for the holidays?
Aloha Shannon,

I like to decorate for the holidays, both inside and outside of the house. I might do little things in my bedroom like candles or small accents but most of the decorating is in the living areas. I'm also heading home for the holidays next week so I didn't decorate anything in my apartment here in Hawaii. Hope you and your sister are having a great time decorating your dorm, it sounds like you two are having fun!

Forum: Do you feel required to give GIFTS?
Aloha Julia,

I was just thinking about this the other day. I don't know if I feel like I'm required to get gifts for friends and family, so much as I want to get gifts for them. I love giving gifts but this year finances are extremely tight. I think most of my gifts will be baked goods if anything at all. I'm back to being a poor college student making just enough money to pay for rent and barely pay for groceries :P

I don't think many people are expecting gifts from me this year, but again I enjoy giving gifts.

Thanks for the forum!

Aloha Anna,

I really enjoy Christmas music. I totally get what you mean about getting annoying with the repetitive songs. Last year are started looking for new Christmas playlists. I really enjoy the Sia and Pentatonix soundtrack. I’d recommend you give them a listen!

Subject: Re: Do You Purchase A Real or Fake Christmas Tree?

Forum: Do You Purchase A Real or Fake Christmas Tree?
Aloha Unique,

Real or fake is always a hard decision, at least for me. I like real trees because of the smell and because I hate using plastic, especially when there is an easy alternative. Lately we have been using real trees and we love it! just have to make sure it stays water to keep the needles on!!

Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now it's Christmas time!!
