It's Christmas Time

Ash over at Hetta Hoo and Ms. Ashes over at Just the Ashes posted two different but similar Christmas surveys and I thought I would join in on the fun.

If you want to join in just copy this entire post. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then post this on your blog.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I go with both. I love wrapping gifts but I also like using gift bags.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. It's just easier and it comes with the lights already on and real trees both the Mister's sinuses.

3. When do you put up the tree? The weekend after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? New Year's Day or sometime right around then.

5. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably would be the American Girl doll - Samantha.

6. Hardest person to buy for? My brother and brother in law.

7. Easiest person to buy for? The Mister

8. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, two of them.

9. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail - but we didn't do Christmas cards this year :(

10. Worst Christmas ever? I don't recall having a bad Christmas

11. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? The Christmas Story and Rudolph

12. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I usually wait to the last minute, this year I was actually done at the beginning of December.

13. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No.

14 .Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? All the goodies! I'm not sure of the name but my grandpa makes these Oyster Crackers with seasoning on them...yum and my mom usually makes Almond Bark covered Pretzels.

15. Favorite Christmas song? Silver Bells, White Christmas and many more!

16. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Right now we have been switching from traveling to staying home every other year.

17. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? No, I tried and missed two.

18. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Growing up we would open presents Christmas Eve after we got home from Christmas Eve church service. We don't really have a tradition yet, but usually the Mister can't wait until Christmas day :)

19. Favorite ornament theme or color? No theme, the Mister and I each have ornaments from when we were little. We also having been buying an ornament a year since we got married and then we just have other random ones we have bought.

20. What do you want for Christmas this year? There really isn't anything I want. The Mister and I decided not to do gifts this year for each other and we will use the money to get things for Logan.

21. Egg nog or hot chocolate: Hot Chocolate with a candy cane and marshmallows! I don't like Egg nog.

22. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? The presents are always wrapped except for the things in the stockings.

23. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White on the tree. If we hung lights outside I might do colored if I could make it not look too tacky :)

24. Do you hang mistletoe? Yes!

25. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I have no idea when I stopped believing in Santa.

26. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Usually all of them :) Santa only left the stocking items and the gifts were from my parents. The Mister and I haven't started a tradition yet.

27. Snow. Love it or dread it? It doesn't really snow here but I loved it growing up, now not so much b/c it could affect our travel plans this year :(

28. Can you ice skate? I have only been ice skating once and that was in New York but I did pretty well for a first timer.

29. What tops your tree? A star, can't really describe what it looks like though - it is made out of red berries and sticks - kind of. I love it!

30. Candy canes: Yuck or yum? Yum!
