Christmas Meme!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bag?
Wrapping paper!! I love to wrap presents! It’s my favorite part.

2. Real tree or artificial?

Artificial all the way! Who wants to clean up pine needles? If you miss the smell, buy a pine air freshener and hide it in the middle!

3. When do you put up your tree?

Between Thanksgiving and December 1

4. When do you take down your tree?

My mother had hers up for two full years once!! I don’t really have any specific time to take it down. Some people I know tear it down the minute the holiday is over – if they even decorate all that much in the first place!

5. Do you like eggnog?

Love it!

6. Favorite gift received as a child?

Probably the yellow wrist radio that was circle shaped - I tried to find it online, but couldn't. (Other than that, ANYTHING my Aunt Ronni bought me - she was the ultimate gift giver!!)

7. Do you have a nativity scene?

My mother has the one we’ve had since we were kids.

8. Hardest person to buy for?

My step-father and my three nephews – I hate, hate, hate to shop for boys.

9. Easiest person to buy for?


10. Worst Christmas gift you've ever received?

I can’t think of one bad gift I’ve ever gotten.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards?

Who emails Christmas cards???

12. Favorite Christmas movie?

Adult Movies: The Family Stone, Love Actually and The Holiday. When I was a kid: How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Frosty The Snowman and A Charlie Brown Christmas

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?

Two weeks before – I’m a big procrastinator and I HATE to shop.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?

Probably – I just can’t remember what it was.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?

The cookies that my sister-in-law makes for me – I only get them once a year and I hoard them. Christmas might be a time for sharing other things, but not these!

16. White or colored lights?


17. Favorite Christmas song?

I’ll Be Home For Christmas

18. Travel for Christmas or stay home?

I would love to be somewhere cold for Christmas, but since my family lives where it’s hot, I go there to be with them and then go somewhere cold afterwards!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers?

Of course.

20. Angel or Star on top of tree?

A star that twinkles!

21. Open presents Christmas Eve or Morning?

Christmas morning – Um, Christmas Eve is NOT Christmas!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year?

All the shit that’s for sale, the crowded stores, the traffic and having to celebrate where it’s hot.

23. What I love most about Christmas?

The lights, cold weather and the snow (if you're in the right part of the country, that is!)
