Christmas Survey

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 and change all the answers so that they apply to you. 'Tis the Season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bag? I'm all about both. Some presents, especially kids toys come in awkward shaped boxes, so I prefer to stick them in a gift bag instead of trying to wrap it neatly. 2. Real tree or artificial? We have an artificial prelit tree, but I do love the smell of real ones.
3. When do you put up your tree? Sometime the weekend after Thanksgiving
4. When do you take down your tree? Sometime after New Years.
5. Do you like eggnog? I hate it, but I think Rob is a fan. But we never buy it. I'm more of a Sparkling Cider fan during the holidays.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Teddy Ruxspin!
7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, we have two. One is made out of olive tree wood that Rob's grandparents bought for him in Jerusalem. And then the other one is the Willow Tree nativity. Rob and my parents gave it to me a couple of Christmas' ago.
8. Hardest person to buy for? My parents. They already have everything!
9. Easiest person to buy for? Rob, but he usually gives me some hints.
10. Worst Christmas gift you've ever received? I can't think of one.
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? I love mail cards. Especially photo ones.
12. Favorite Christmas movie? I would have to say A Christmas Story and Elf
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually right after Thanksgiving, but this year I started and finished in November. I hate fighting the crowds!
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think so.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Our family does pot luck, but I decided to make it a tradition to bring funeral potatoes! They are my fave!!!
16. White or colored lights? I like white for our tree, but colored outside on our house.
17. Favorite Christmas song? There are too many to chose from.
18. Traveling for Christmas or stay home? Staying home!
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Doner, Blitzen, and RUDOLPH!
20. Angel or Star on top of tree? Star
21. Open presents Christmas Eve or Morning? We always open our Christmas PJs on Christmas Eve, but everything else on Christmas Morning!
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Crowds at the stores.
23. Favorite Holiday Traditions? We have so many, but a couple of my favs are having Christmas PJs, and cooking a big Christmas Breakfast at my Parents on Christmas morning.
24. What I love most about Christmas? The lights, the smells, the tastes! I pretty much love it all!
