Christmas Meme

Snatched from the blog of a certain ferret lover.

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
  2. Wrapping paper, mostly. I do recycle gift bags for odd-shaped gifts or small things that I want to combine, though.

  3. Real tree or artificial?
  4. Fake. I can’t stand cutting down a living tree, just to have it sit in my house for a few weeks and watch it die. I would get balled trees, but eventually you run out of places to plant them. So, fake it is.

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

  7. When do you take the tree down?
  8. January-ish.

  9. Do you like eggnog?
  10. Definitely. Don’t forget the nutmeg!

  11. Favorite gift received as a child?
  12. I don’t know. I don’t remember the gifts so much as the wonderful family time spent together and the traditions that we had.

  13. Do you have a nativity scene?
  14. Nope. We always had one when I was growing up, but I don’t have one now.

  15. Hardest person to buy for?
  16. Terry! He never gives me ideas and always buys himself whatever he wants, so I have to wrack my brain every year for something special. One of these years, I’m going to come up empty.

  17. Easiest person to buy for?
  18. I think that my friend Mary is the easiest. She loves whatever I give her! 🙂

  19. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
  20. I don’t remember.

  21. Mail or email Christmas cards?
  22. Mail. Except this year. I’m either skipping cards completely or doing them via email.

  23. Favorite Christmas Movie?
  24. The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (the original, animated version). Ooooh no, Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol! THAT is my favorite!

  25. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
  26. June-ish. I have to be done by Thanksgiving or I’ll have a panic attack. 😆

  27. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
  28. No

  29. Favorite thing to eat and drink at Christmas?
  30. Sparkling grape juice (non-alcoholic, of course) to drink and turkey with stuff, gravy, cranberry sauce and broccoli casserole for dinner. Oh, and peanut butter kiss cookies. 🙂

  31. Clear lights or colored on the tree?
  32. Multi-colored for indoor trees. Clear for outdoors.

  33. Favorite Christmas song?
  34. Mmmmm… not sure. Maybe Bing Crosby’s White Christmas? I have both volumes of the Time-Life Christmas collection and there are a lot of “oldies but goodies” on there.

  35. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
  36. Stay home. Ever since we built the house, Christmas is here. It’s just easier that way.

  37. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
  38. I can sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” so yes.

  39. Angel on the tree top or a star?
  40. Oh come on, like you even have to ask? 😉 Actually, we had an angel until I found the perfect star topper last year. It’s the Hallmark Starbright Illuminations tree topper.

  41. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
  42. Both. Terry and I exchange gifts with each other the night before to have some special, romantic time to ourselves and we exchange gifts with the rest of the family Christmas morning.

  43. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
  44. The stress and the crowds, but mostly the over-commercialization of the holiday.

  45. Favorite thing about the Christmas holidays?
  46. The generosity of the Christmas spirit, giving gifts and the general glow of this time of year.

  47. Most memorable gift?
  48. Many of the gifts that Terry give me have some special significance, but I could not point out any single gift as the most memorable. Mostly because my memory is terrible!

  49. What’s the one thing you seem to never get done at Christmas time?
  50. I can never seem to get everything stitched that I would like to for gifts. I even started earlier this year, but then took on too many other obligations, so I ended up worse off than usual.
