Getting to Know Me - Christmas Style

With Christmas just ONE week away, I had to do something festive. I saw this questionnaire on Go East Memphis Mama's blog and I wanted to join in on the fun.
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I wrap most of my gifts, but I'd much rather use gift bags.
2. Real tree or artificial?
I grew up with an artificial tree. To me, it's easier to put it up and drag it out each year rather than picking out a tree and watering it.
3. When do you put up the tree?
Usually the day after Thanksgiving or sometime that weekend.
4. Do you like eggnog?
I prefer hot chocolate.
5. Favorite gift received as a child?
Anything Barbie or Cabbage Patch dolls
6. Do you have a nativity scene?
I have several! I love them. Fred even bought me one in Mexico (it's this large Mexican woman with Jesus, Mary and Joseph in her belly).
7. Hardest person to buy for?
My entire family. They have EVERYTHING!
8. Easiest person to buy for?
Me. I know what I like. I give people options.
9. Mail or email Christmas cards?
I mail my Christmas cards. I love receiving them too.
10. Favorite Christmas movie?
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Love Actually and Elf.
11. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
I start in October.
12. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Cranberry Sauce. Ha! I also love those green Christmas cookies and the Christmas Funfetti cake in the box.
13. Clear lights or colored lights on the tree?
I love colored lights on the tree. And white lights outside.
14. Favorite Christmas song?
"All I Want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey
15. Travel or stay home at Christmas?
We stay in Memphis, but we go between our two families on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
16. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and RUDOLPH
17. Angel on tree top or star?
We have a silver star
18. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Morning?
Both. We have several family functions.
19. The most annoying thing about this time of year?
Traffic and crime. So sad.
20. What I love most about Christmas?
I love that we're celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior. He is the reason for the season. I also love giving gifts, looking at all of the lights and saying "Merry Christmas". It's so happy.
