5. Do you like eggnog? I.  LOVE.  EGGNOG.  can’t get enough of the stuff, to keep the calorie count down we have been drinking “silk” brand soy-nog the last few years, and a little rum dose’t hurt either.

    I do know them all:
    Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid,
    Donner and Blitzen
