Christmas Favorites anyone?

Mama of 6 published this list on her blog, Truly Delightful in Every Way, and although I usually hate this sort of thing, I liked the festive feel of it. Not surprisingly, as I was answering the questions, I realized I'm really kind of a hum bug. I'm super interested in your answers though. So, leave a comment or publish on your blog. Let's spread the fun.

So, here are the questions and my grinchy answers:

1. Favorite winter beverage? hot cider
2. Fave Christmas candy? See's chocolates, nuts and chews only
3. Fave candy cane flavor? color? not a candy cane fan
