A Fun Christmas Survey

I got tagged by Carol! And I ditto the tag on the M:A ladies...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Gift bags - with lots of tissue

2. Real tree or artificial? Real, but we haven't gotten once since that first year, because of Frodo and Sam and the whole still-cleaning-pine-needles-in-June thing...

3. When do you put up the tree? Well it would be 1 December, but see 2)

4. When do you take the tree down? – Hmm, after Twelfth Night, I suppose

5. What do you do with your tree after you take it down? See, here's the thing, I'm not sure I support all this cutting down of trees stuff anyway...

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Carol got an Etch-A-Sketch! Mine was probably Lego

7. Hardest person to buy for? Nieces and nephews - they already have everything and they're too young to read

8. Easiest person to buy for? My sister - always so many options!

9. Do you have a nativity scene? A small carved one

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Both - so many people overseas!

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Nothing's ever that bad...

12. Favorite Christmas movie? It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street and Charlie Brown and the Grinch and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and...

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? This year I started in June

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Nah

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cookies, eggnog, cranberry sauce, Nina's mulled wine

16. Lights on the tree? O' course

17. Favorite Christmas song? Oh my. All the hymns. The *old* hymns. I wish Easter had this many hymns

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I would love to travel but besides that year we were in Turkey, we've never gone anywhere around this time - except up north for New Year's to Steve and Di's, which was lovely

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? While reciting 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, yes

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

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning. Early.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Cheeseball versions of Winter Wonderland, the fact that the stores start in with Christmas stuff in October, people who complain about the season being stressful

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Someday I'd like to try an all silver and blue theme around the house. Or a silver and red theme...

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Oh the usual. Some different vegetables would be nice, though

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? An espresso machine. An agent! A month off work for no reason...

Ha! I too, have a tree-destroying cat. Gotta love the fake plastic trees - no mess, and psycho cat still gets to have his fun. (g)
