Christmas Questionnaire

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy (not forward) this and change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you... 'Tis the Season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? 90% wrapping paper, 10% gift bags. I try to only use gift bags for things that are odd shapes or when I get really lazy! I like to open stuff.

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial. I'm not into cleaning up needles.

3. When do you put up the tree? Thanksgiving weekend

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually pretty quickly. Definitely by the 1st of the year.

5. Do you like eggnog? No

6. Favorite gift received as a child? This Barbie type doll that had slits in her arms, legs, etc. and came with fabric so you could design clothes for her. I remember she had huge purple shoes that I loved!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, two of them. Neither of which were put up this year because of Henry's destructive ways. David keeps asking when we're putting up "Jesus' barn".

8. Hardest person to buy for? Chris

9. Easiest person to buy for? David and Henry

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I can't really remember a bad gift. . . I'm pretty good at getting the point across regarding what I'd like. As in, a Christmas list with websites, stores, prices, etc. I did get some ugly brown shoes like 15 years ago.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail. Christmas cards are perhaps my favorite part about Christmas

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Miracle on 34th St. or A Christmas Story

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Whenever I see something. Usually around October.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Not that I remember.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Hi, I'm pregnant. I think everything's my favorite right now.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear on our big tree, colored on the boys' tree.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Ave Maria (although not really just for Christmas) and Silent Night. Or We Wish You a Merry Christmas, as sung by Henry.

18. Travel for Christmas or stay at home? Stay home

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers? Dasher, dancer, prancer, vixen, comet, cupid, donner, blitzen, rudolph

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? A star on both of them.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? We open one (typically Christmas pjs) on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas day.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? People are crazy and rude in the stores.

23. What I love most about Christmas? The excitement David and Henry have now that they "get" Christmas.

24. Gift you most want this year? A healthy baby in January. I'll take a delayed gift this year!
