Christmas Questions (or getting to know me a little better)

I got these questions from a friend and thought they might be fun! What are YOUR answers???

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I LOVE to rip off wrapping paper and make a huge mess. Plus the dogs LOVE the paper!
  2. Real tree or artificial? Love real trees, but the dogs will pee on them,.
  3. When do you put up the tree? We don't put a tree up, really, as there is no room at our house. We DO have a little 2-foot one for the dining table tho.
  4. When do you take the tree down? Are you SUPPOSED to take it down?
  5. Do you like eggnog? No. A thousand times no.
  6. Favorite gift received as a child? A Chrissy doll. Her hair grew when you poked in her belly button. And my gramma Stella used to give us $5.00 in dimes. SCORE!!!
  7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, my mom bought me a very nice one. Thanks, Mom!
  8. Hardest person to buy for? Carl. He never wants anything. And Dad. Same thing.
  9. Easiest person to buy for? Monica. She sends lists so I know what to get her. Even though I usually just wind up giving her a gift card... LOL.
  10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A sweater with all kinds of sparkly jewels on it. SO not me.
  11. Mail or email Christmas cards? I try to mail them, but have failed for two years in a row now. Call me a slacker. Go ahead. have I gotten a card from YOU yet?
  12. Favorite Christmas Movie? ELF. Smiling's my favorite.
  13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I shop all year long and then have a mad rush on Christmas Eve.
  14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Who want's to know? I took the tags off, right?
  15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? This list can get really long: Ham, my fabulous cheesy potatoes, baked beans, toffee chocolate chip cookies, big glasses of cold milk.
  16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear.
  17. Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night and My Grown-up Christmas Wish by Amy Grant.
  18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Home mostly, but I do want to get back home to Michigan for Christmas before my parents don't remember me.
  19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes.
  20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star
  21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? YES. Mostly I open presents whenever I see one addressed to me. I love presents!
  22. What do you like least about Christmas? The crazy traffic, the crazy drivers, and the crazy amounts of people in stores like Walmart or Target.
  23. What I love most about Christmas? Being able to sleep in! The dogs opening their presents. Calling home and having Dad talk to me for more than just a "Hello, here's your mother." Smooching Carl under the mistletoe (even if we don't have any mistletoe).
