Christmas Getting to Know You

How about some Christmas Getting to Know You Tag?



1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I wrap MOST and I bag those things that are awkward... but I do color coordinate it all. One year I did all black and white houndstooth packages and my family had red bows and my husband's had green so we could tell them apart! This year I got some bright green plain paper and then I got red and white stripped paper too. I think it will look a little Grinch-ish, but it will be FUN!


2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial AND pre-lit, but I miss the smell of the real one!




3. When do you put up the tree? I TRY to do it right after Thanksgiving, but it doesn't always happen like that!



4. When do you take the tree down? It depends. Some years I am OVER it and I am ready to put it all away. Some years I just love looking at the lights and I leave it up until I think people are ready to call me a redneck... then I take it down.



5. Do you like eggnog?NO- Yick!




6. Favorite gift received as a child? I am sad to say that I don't really remember a HUGE gift that stands out, but I did love getting an Easy Bake Oven!



7. Hardest person to buy for? all of the men in my family. They all claim to need nothing so I just wander around the mall in a total fog.



8. Easiest person to buy for? My mom! I could shop for her everyday!


9. Do you have a nativity scene? YES, but I would like to have more than one


10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail and it's usually a photo card



11. WORST CHRISTMAS GIFT U EVER RECEIVED? I don't really remember anything terrible either! I guess that's a good thing. Sometimes I would get clothes that were TOTALLY not me, but nothing horrid stands out.



12. Favorite Christmas Movie? I guess A Christmas Story... I don't really get into holiday movies so much... The Polar Express was SO amazing just in the animation


13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I try to be on the look out all year... If I see something I know someone might like I go ahead and get it.

14 . Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? not that I know of...

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? sweet potato casserole, this jello salad that my mother-in-law makes... me and my sister-in-law "fight" over it, all of the desserts... oh goodness!


16. Lights on the tree? white, please!

17. Favorite Christmas song?I like Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, but without "the fates allow" part... I love the songs about Jesus since THAT'S why we celebrate in the first place PEOPLE!


18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? lately we have stayed home. It has been SO nice.


19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer'? I don't think so... I have to sing the song... and even then I don't always get 'em.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? One on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas morning


22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? traffic and commercialism... AND the radio stations playing all Christmas BEFORE Thanksgiving! Give Thanksgiving a chance people!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Red, white and green and I love BELLS!


25. What do you want for Christmas this year? To spend time with my family and friends and I would not mind having an Ipod... and a new coat.

Ok, I tag Faith, Jennifer, Valarie, Amy E. and Amy G.!
