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.
Eggnog or champagne
Oh wow. He is creepy! Funny I’ve never heard of him. Maybe I’ve always been good, hahaha .
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?
Yes Lore, NYC has street vendors selling chestnuts during the fall/winter. Along with delicacies like hotdogs, knishes, and pretzels.
Movies: black & white or colorized
Ahhh…I remember having one of those hot dogs years ago. Best ever!
Movies: Drama or comedy
Drama, but really depends on my mood.
Cash or credit cards. Does anyone use cash in Portugal?
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
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
Die Hard or Home Alone
Jazz or Classical
Christmas song: Jingle Bell Rock or White Christmas
