Twelve Days of Christmas Daily Giveaway! Day 1

My annual 12 Days of Christmas celebration will run from 12/9 through 12/23 excluding Sundays. Visit my blog each day to answer a trivia question about Christmas. I will chose a winner from the correct responses for a fabulous prize! Winners will be posted daily - Good Luck!

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, A partridge in a pear's today's trivia question:

One of my favorite Holiday drinks is eggnog. Not the kind you buy
in the carton at the store, but my homemade eggnog with the
nutmeg and frothy foam on top...hmmm, can't wait.
What country first created this yummy drink?

(Disclaimer: Trivia questions were taken from multiple Christmas Trivia websites and answers have not been verified for accuracy. Questions are for entertainment purposes.)

I got England as the country credited with creating eggnog. There's something missing when eggnog isn't made.

Egg Nog made with rum is believed to have been made first here in the USA.

The egg drink made with wine, England.

Eggnog is believed to have originated in England and it is one of my favorite things about the holidays.

I still remember the first time I drank eggnog. My mom has always hated any kind of eggs, so my dad was on eggnog detail and I loved watching him get it all frothy and thick and then grate nutmeg into it. Yummy! It got even yummier when I grew up and could drink the adult version. :)

I believe it originated in England and then came to the US.

We used to make Eggnog from scratch but decided it was too much work and some members of the family didn't like the taste so now we just get it from a local dairy, which has a really great recipe.

I answer also England

Most of the info I looked at said England too. I've never had home made egg nog, and I need to remedy that.

The general concensus is that Egg Nog originated in England.

My family has never made Egg Nog from scratch & I don't really like the thick consistancy, so I always mix the store bought stuff 50/50 with milk to make it more drinkable.

When I was a kid, my dad used to put a half gallon of vanilla ice cream in a punchbowl & pour the eggnog over it, which made for a really thick eggnog punch. Most of the time, they left the alcohol out, but it seems like I do remember one year that we younger kids weren't allowed to drink any, so maybe there was alcohol in it that year.

Better late than never? I too came up with England. I haven't had egg nog in years, and now that you've made me think so much about it, I guess I'd better add it to my grocery list for tomorrow's shopping! Thanks!
