Christmas Meme

Thanks to Kim G. for passing this along!

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Either is fine with me!
  2. Real tree or artificial? Real, definitely.
  3. Eggnog, hot chocolate or apple cider? Eggnog grosses me out, just the name--bleh! (They should rename that, like they're calling prunes dried plumes now to make them seem more palatable.) But I love hot cocoa, even though it makes me break out. Apple cider is good too, though I associate that more with late fall.
  4. Favorite gift as a child? Hmm. I don't remember too many of the gifts I got early on, but I do remember an electronic cat that my Oma got me. It would move around when you clapped, and it purred when you pet it.
  5. Nativity Scene? Yup, we have a few, though we're not religious.
  6. Hardest person to buy for? I'd say my lil brother. He lives in AZ so I don't see him much so it's hard to know what he has and doesn't. I usually go the gift card route with him, though I hate doing that.
  7. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail - but only to people who I won't see around the holidays.
  8. Worst gift received? Can't think of one. I'm pretty easy to please. I guess if you pressed me I'd say one of the 5 sweaters I got from various in-laws last year. How many sweaters could one person need?
  9. Favorite Christmas movie? I love the Grinch and Charlie Brown, and I crack up at A Christmas Story everytime I see it.
  10. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I pretty much spread it throughout the year, though I do most of it post-Thanksgiving.
  11. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Sure!
  12. Favorite thing to eat? Everything!
  13. Clear or colored lights? Clear, though I kinda want to spice it up next year and add some color
  14. Outside lights? Just on our front windows
  15. Favorite Christmas Song? This year it's that duet, Baby it's Cold Outside. So cute!
  16. Travel or stay home? We usually do a little bit of both, to see B's family, which is local, and mine which is in NY. If at all possible, I like to be home Christmas morning.
  17. Angel on top of tree or star? Star
  18. Open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? Growing up it was one on Christmas eve and the rest on Christmas morning. But that switched as we got older and my older brother liked to sleep in until noon, and me and my little brother liked to get up early. Then Steven opened most of his gifts at night and now we've morphed into doing most of the gifts that night. But when we're here, it's all about Christmas morning.
  19. Favorite ornament theme or color? I love an eclectic tree with ornaments from our childhood.
  20. Favorite Christmas Dinner? Maybe Italian food? Though I really just like food, in general. :)
  21. What do you want for Christmas this year? Nothing in particular. I'm blessed with a husband who is an amazing gift giver, so I'm always delighted.

Merry Christmas!
