Chocolate chip.    You got the right image, Lore. In Eastern/Central European culture Santa gives the good children, things, and Krampus deals with the bad.

Oh wow. He is creepy! Funny I’ve never heard of him. Maybe I’ve always been good, hahaha joyjoyjoy
Im gonna go with Eggnog. We used to make it ourselves when I was a kid and it was amazing. I’ve not seen or heard of it here now that you mention it. I’ll have to ask my Portuguese friends. 
 

Christmas music: newer or traditional 

Oh! But pretty much everywhere I go there are these carts on the sidewalk that billow smoke and smell really good and they are roasting Chestnuts (Castanhas) Maybe I get that instead of Eggnog…. But you have those carts in NYC too, right?

Drama, but really depends on my mood.

Cash or credit cards. Does anyone use cash in Portugal?

Cash

Outside of the bigger cities (Lisbon and Porto) cash is preferred. I had some issues in some smaller towns on previous trips wanting to use a card, and a non-Portuguese card, well…forget it. It’s interesting…you pay your utility bills at an ATM. And many many things you pay a person or business directly through the ATM too. Like the class I signed up for, I paid through the ATM with their IBAN and account number. I’m not decided on my comfort with this yet, lol.

Ginger bread or fruit cake

Gingerbread.   

That's interesting about the ATM. I always hear the US uses the most cash. Though that changed some. Some old restaurants & bars only started taking credit cards during COVID.

Gingerbread house: ornamental or edible
