Christmas Tag

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I'm a horrible wrapper so I usually use bags and tissue. I'm good at placing the tissue in the bag!

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial! I grew up with an artificial tree so I wouldn't know how to keep a real one alive! Too much work if you ask me. Spray some pine scent if you want that Christmas feel!

3. When do you put up the tree? I'm not putting ours up this year. Our apartment is too small. In years past I tried to get it up after Thanksgiving!

4. When do you take the tree down? One year it didn't go down until July! Pretty sad actually. I'm not the best at the take down process. It takes so much time to get it up that I dread taking it down.

5. Do you like eggnog?I can't stand the stuff! I tried it once and my taste buds didn't care for the taste!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably My Little Ponies! I loved those!

7. Hardest person to buy for? Everyone is hard in my opinion! Especially those that already have everything!

8. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes!! The expensive Willow Tree collection! I love it! I haven't used it yet but I plan to when I have a bigger place!

9. Mail or email Christmas cards? I don't do cards usually. At least not ones with our years history including family pictures. We don't have children to brag about! I do give out cards that say Merry Christmas though!

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I don't know. I probably never got one!

11. Favorite Christmas Movie?Home Alone, Christmas Vacation (you can look at my previous post to get a bigger list)!

12. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually when it's too late. I still haven't done our shopping! Better get onto that!

13. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't recall ever doing that. I'll try and return it and get money back or something before recycling it.

14. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Chocolate, cheese spreads on wheat thins, fudge, my mother-in-laws rolls!

15. Lights on the tree? When I decorate a tree.....yes!! Clear lights! I think they look classy!

16. Favorite Christmas song? Oh Holy Night! I think it is gorgeous! I like Angels we have heard on High too!

17. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I prefer people traveling to see us! I don't like packing and unpacking! Too stressful!

18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, and Blitzen........Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!

19. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas day? Christmas Morning

21. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Working retail and never finding any parking (even in employee parking area) and driving in the horrid snow!

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? Our tree is pink and gold!

23. Favorite for Christmas dinner?The whole meal is good. I do prefer turkey over ham. Not much of a ham fan!

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? To get out of debt!

25. Who is most likely to respond to this?Anyone who cares!

26. Who is least likely to respond to this? Anyone who doesn't care!

Fun Blog. My favorite song is O Holy Night too. I love the Josh Groban version. I also hate yearly updates and family photo Christmas cards. It's so tacky. "Merry CHristmas here is a novel about us and picture of our family" LAME!

I too like the house pictured on this post. It looks like the perfect Christmas house. I'm so glad you and Grant will be here for Christmas...without you it would be just plain sad.
