How Do You Holiday?

Melanie is always good for some interesting memes that get-to-know-ya better, so I figured I'd steal this one from her.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? All different prints of wrapping paper.
2. Real or artificial Tree? Totally fake, but pre-lit, so no light aggravation for me, Baby.
3. When do you put Christmas tree up? I try as soon as possible after Thanksgiving. Sometimes a little later than sooner.
4. When do you take the tree down? I always feel very self-satisfied when I have it down before the end of January. It was very embarrassing the year February came and I hadn't packed it away yet, so I try not to let that happen any more.
5. Like egg nog? I'm an egg nog snob. I suppose I don't like it enough to drink just any brand. But Purity from Ithaca, NY. Well, let's just say it's more like melted ice cream than egg nog. In calorie count as well as taste. I promise you, my favorite brand will totally beat up your favorite brand.
6. Do you have a nativity scene? Oh, I do. This one. It's purty.
7. Favorite gift received as a child? I think maybe a Barbie Camper I got....not really sure.
8. Hardest person to buy for? The Dads.
9. Easiest person to buy for? Little Chic. You call it a gift, she loves it! And she gets excited about clothes now too!
10. Worst Christmas gift? Probably a bird that Muh Main Man bought me. I adored it at the tine, but it pooped all over our apartment because we treated it like a dog. We named it "Woodstock" and it could chirp exactly like our telephone. We were constantly answering the phone only to hear the dial tone with the bird looking all suspicious-like as if saying, "Who, Me?!"
11. Mail or email a Christmas Card? That would be neither. Which is why I keep a blog.
12. Favorite Christmas movie? Little Lord Fauntleroy with Ricky Schroeder.
13. Favorite food to eat at Christmas? My shortbread Christmas cookies.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Oh, I'm sure I have, but I've also been the willing recipient of one, so who's complaining?
16. Favorite lights? White inside, colored outside.
17. Favorite Christmas Song? Love 'em all.
18. Travel during Christmas or Stay Home? Lots of time we're visiting family but this year we are home. And I get to take advantage of the after-Christmas sales. Yay for me!
19. Can you name Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen & Rudolph. ( I knew every one myself~!)
20. Angel or Star on Tree top? A cute pine cone star that matches my house.
21. Least favorite thing about this time of year? The frazzled bustle that sometimes takes the fun out of the holiday season.
22. Which one person do you really want to see blessed this Christmas and why? My Auntie, who has had a stressful year.

I bet John would be proud to know that your favorite toy was a camper! :) And I had no idea that Ricky Schroeder was in a Christmas movie. I'll have to check that out!

I have yet to find an egg nog that suits my buds. Perhaps I'll give Purity a try.

Melanie said...

That was a fun meme! I'm glad you played along.

I LOVE that Purity egg nog- there is nothing like it.

I've also been known to leave my tree up a bit too long. Perhaps even in to March one year.
