Christmas Meme

1. Wrapping paper or bags? Wrapping Paper and bags depending on what I'm wrapping.

2. Real tree or artificial? R Fake- I'm a big Bah-Humbug when it comes to needles all over the floor. Not to mention I've had babies in the house for so long trying to heat them...

3. When do you put up the tree? Normally after Thanksgiving, but we didn't get to put one up this year with the big move coming up.

4. When do you take the tree down? Around the New Year

5. Do you like eggnog? I don't think I've ever had it, but I don't like thick drinks. Gag. I'm with Lauren!!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? My kitchen. My parents claim that putting that kitchen together nearly led to divorce. They were going CRAZY!!!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes. I think I have a couple. A glass one and a cute one... But they're packed so I can't take pics for you. :(

8. Hardest person to buy for? Seiuli. He never "wants" anything!!

9. Easiest person to buy for? Taj. He loves EVERYTHING.

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I can't think of anything. It was probably from my ex-MIL

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? MAIL!!!

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? I guess "It's a Wonderful Life"

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Like a week ago!! Aaaggh!!!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I've never given away a gift I received, but I have found stuff at my Grandma's to give. Only to my ex-in laws. She had all this cool stuff under her bed that was brand new!!

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?rit Candied Yams!!

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Definitly white

17. Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Nite and Frosty the Snowman (Thanks to my brother for learning in preschool. I still know all the words...)

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I'd rather just be home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers? After seeing this meme 4000 times I can! Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? I think we have an angel, but I'm cool with either

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Eve and then play with Santa gifts on Christmas

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The rush of Christmas. Like setting up for Christmas during the month of October! Like one radio station here plays Christmas music starting Nov. 1. Ugh. I also am bugged with "Winter Parties" instead of Christmas. We're so worried about offending the minority that we offend the majority.

23. What I love most about Christmas? Being with my family, the Spirit in the air.

"It's a Wonderful Life" is my favorite Christmas movie ever!

DH says that I'm the hardest person to buy for: I never want anything. And I really don't :P

Don't listen to Lauren. Give Nog a try: Just make sure it's fancy, not generic brand.

Also: Don't read the fat content.
Also: Don't tell Lauren.

Yeah, what's with this anti-nog campaign? It's GOOD STUFF!

And are we going to have to get into the "Donner vs Donder" debate? I learned it as "Donder."

Stepherz said...

I'm with No Cool Story-- you have to at least TRY eggnog!

This was a super fun meme!

Yvonne said...

I'm so glad you did this meme. It is so fun.

Your missing something really tasty--egg nog is delicious!!!

I had candied yams the other night at a Christmas party and they were wonderful.

I am watching "It's a Wonderful Life" right now!!!

Uhm, I hate to tell you, but you forgot Olive. I know she was kinda mean, but Rudolph forgave her, so I'm just saying. . .

I'm with you on the fake trees, but my hubby has to have a real one. And not only a real one, but this year, one with a big ol' root sack at the bottom so we can plant it when we're done. Oh the joy.

I'm slightly worried about our Christmas this year now. We got Peaches a kitchen set, and I'm sure there's some assembly required. :o)

I love this meme. Thanks for sharing.

I am proud of you and lovely family. I understand the needles thing and I have spent too many years in the landscape industry to not appreciate a lovely plant.
I too do artifical trees.

My favorite Christmas films are The Muppet Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life.

We do watch A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch (the old one) and maybe the Santa Clause.

Mostly we work on bringing Advent preparations to the fore and celebrate the Feast Day of St. Nicholas.

Keep your sunny side up,

I saw that NO COOL...ohh she should watch her back. ;)

I loved this!

I ♥ Tori!

Nancy Face said...

Yay, no nog! Great answers!

Egg nog is grand after the initial taste. But I am with NCS you gotta go with a really good brand. But I really do not believe I will be able to change your mind. So just fo get about it!
