As seen on Anna’s blog:

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
  2. Both, but mostly wrapping paper.

  3. Real tree or artificial?
  4. Artificial. I can’t see sacrificing a tree for my decorating purposes. Plus, it keeps us from worrying about Phoebe getting into dropped needles or the tree water.

  5. When do you put up the tree?
  6. Sometime after Terry’s birthday on Dec. 8th.

  7. When do you take the tree down?
  8. Sometime in January.

  9. Do you like egg nog?
  10. Yep. I need to buy some the next time we’re at the grocery store, actually. I usually add some nutmeg to it.

  11. Favorite gift received as a child?
  12. Either my Easy Bake oven or my Hippity Hop. If you don’t know what it is, a Hippity Hop was a large ball with a handle on it that you could sit on and bounce around everywhere.

  13. Do you have a nativity scene?
  14. No.

  15. Hardest person to buy for?
  16. My father-in-law. He buys everything he wants, when he wants it. I make him Terry’s problem. 😉

  17. Easiest person to buy for?
  18. Probably my mother. I can usually give her something homemade, plus something retail.

  19. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards?
  20. Snail mail. Though I tend to run out of cards.

  21. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
  22. More like worst set of Christmas gifts received. One year, after my parents divorced, I gave a whole list to my dad and he didn’t get me one single thing on the list! Sorry, Dad, I love you, but I was really bummed.

  23. Favorite Christmas movie?
  24. Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol

  25. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
  26. Early fall. Can’t start too early, unless it’s a stitched item, because you run the risk of the recipient buying the gift for themselves.

  27. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
  28. Probably, but I can’t remember anything specific.

  29. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
  30. Everything. 😉 Peanut butter kiss cookies.

  31. Clear lights or colored on the tree?
  32. Multi-colored, please.

  33. Favorite Christmas song?
  34. I don’t think I have a favorite.

  35. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
  36. Stay home. When we bought the house, we declared that everyone would come to us. 🙂

  37. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
  38. Yep. The Rudolph song is forever burned into my brain.

  39. Angel on the tree top or a star?
  40. A star, of course. But someday it will be an angel with hardanger wings and gown.

  41. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
  42. Both. Terry and I open our presents to each other on Christmas Eve. We open presents with my parents in the morning, then presents with his parents when they arrive.

  43. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
  44. The over-commercialization of Christmas. Stores start carrying Christmas items way too early!

  45. Favorite ornament theme or color?
  46. Favorite ornament theme would be handmade. I was lax this year in finishing items, but I woud eventually like to have the majority of my ornaments be handmade.

  47. Favorite thing for Christmas dinner?
  48. Turkey. Since Terry’s allergic to poultry, this is about the only time of year that I get turkey!

  49. What do you want for Christmas this year?
  50. To be happy.

    I hope you get your Christmas wish, but remember you can’t know that you’re happy unless sometimes you aren’t.

    Oh, I loved my Hippity Hop! How funny, I’d forgotten all about it. I had a Lemon Twist too – did you?
