Christmas Survey

Ok, fine. Holiday Seasons Greetings and all that.

1. Wrapping paper of gift bags? For the most part we reuse gift bags, but there is something very satisfying in tearing open paper. Newspaper works just as well.

2. Real tree or artificial? I tried a real tree once. it made a mess. I like what my parents did for awhile (until they ran out of room in the yard), and buy a living tree in a pot, then plant it in the spring.

3. When do you put up the tree? Any time after 29 November. Sage prefers to have it up in October or something, but I refuse to celebrate anything christmassy until after both thanksgiving and my birthday. One holiday at a time.

4. When do you take the tree down? Before New Years. One holiday at a time.

5. Do you like eggnog? Don't know. Maybe?

6. Favorite gift received as a child? My mother's best friend's family would make us Christmas ornaments every year and we got to open them on Christmas Eve. That's prolly my favorite.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? I have no idea. Don't think so. Ask Sage.

8. Hardest person to buy for? My step-dad. I keep suggesting bullets, but Sage doesn't think that's very personal.

9. Easiest person to buy for? Sage. She loves shoes, scarfs & gloves, pretty things, material, and books.

10. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? We made christmas cards (Well, Sage made them) and mailed them to close family and friends. I might post on facebook for everyone else.

11. Worst Christmas gift ever received? Prolly socks or something silly.

12. Favorite Christmas movies? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Where the cat explodes under the chair. Classic.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? When the bonus check comes. A couple years ago that was January.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Don't know. Would be okay if i did.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? my mother's home made rolls, although i think she's stopped making them. Thanksgiving we had croisants from Paul's.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Our tree is decorated in all white. We have a single string of white garland, a white bell garland, and white lights. It is simple and looks nice. Plus, the cat's dont knock down the garland and there are less broken ornaments that i still sometimes find from our first christmas with the cats.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Carol of the Bells.

18. Travel on Christmas or stay home? Travel. We go to my mom's. Then we go home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph. Oh, look at that. Sidhe did it for me.

20. Angel on top of the tree or star? Angel. But she's getting a little old and needing replacement. Maybe i'll buy a barbie and do some creativity stuff.. maybe not.

21. Most annoying thing about this time of year? not enough snow.

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? white.

23. Favorite Christmas dinner? whatever mom makes.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? Amazon Kindle

25. A favorite Christmas tradition? Driving to see lights.
