Christmas Meme


I saw this meme over at Jolene's and Tammy's, so I swiped it - cuz that's how I am ;-)

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? - I use both. Gift bags are great for when I buy a last minute gift (like all of my gifts this year), and don't have time to wrap it.
  2. Real tree or artificial? - Artificial, although my husband prefers a real one.
  3. When do you put up your tree? We aren't this year (depressing, isn't it?) - but usually after Thanksgiving (the end of November)
  4. When do you take down the tree? Right after New Year's
  5. Do you like eggnog? I think so - I honestly don't know if I've ever tried it LOL
  6. Favorite gift received as a child? My computer desk from my grandpa
  7. Do you have a nativity scene? No - but I want one. I have a nativity scene ornament for my tree though. My grandma's nativity scene was always a favorite of mine when we decorated.
  8. Hardest person to buy for? My aunt... when she wants something, she just goes and gets it.
  9. Easiest person to buy for? My dad, because I know him so well, which usually results in my coming up with too many ideas for him, and no ideas for anyone else LOL
  10. Worst Christmas gift you received? ('scuse me ahahahahahaha LOL -I'm still cracking up over Tammy's answer!!!) my aunt bought me my first training bra (trust me-it didn't train anything, cuz I still don't have anything which requires me to own a bra LOL) - and she hung it on my stocking... how rude!
  11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Every year I say I'm going to send cards, but I never do. I usually do send some e-mail cards. And, if I have a gift card for someone, I will put it in a card I printed.
  12. Favorite Christmas movie? The Grinch - the original one and Santa Claus with Tim Allen
  13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? huh??? I was supposed to start already? It all depends. I'm really behind this year... really behind.
  14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No.
  15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? My grandma used to make these cookie/candy-type things called Meringues. I used to watch where she hid them, so there would still be some for Christmas. On Christmas day, I would sneak in the closet and get them and go walking into the living room with the can full o meringues in my hand... I would literally get mobbed - I, being the littlest one in the family, would be on the bottom of the pile of aunts, uncles, and cousins. hehe. And, my dad's hot chocolate (it's the best and brings back special memories)
  16. Clear lights or colored lights on your tree? I like all the colors I can possibly get - I also like flashing/blinking/chasing lights. Unfortunately, my grandma and aunt couldn't stand blinking lights, and now I married a man who doesn't like them either.
  17. Favorite Christmas song? Silent Night (just like Tammy - go figure) - but I like LOTS of other ones too... so this is a very unfair question!
  18. Travel at Christmas or stay st home? This is the first visit to my family since the move - we're traveling!
  19. Can you name all Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen... but do you recaaaaaaaaaalllll - the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph.
  20. Angel on top of tree or star? We have both - I make my husband pick between them each year
  21. Open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? Well, we'll be opening with my aunts, uncles, and cousins on the 22nd (cuz of work schedule conflicts). With my dad it will be Christmas day. My husband and I dont' exchange gifts.
  22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The stress of getting everything done, and the money being spent. Oh, and I hate, hate, driving in Winter weather.
  23. What I love most about Christmas? Spending time with my family.

Ya liked my granny panties did ya. I tagged you for a different meme. LOVE YA DORK!

Jolene

I love reading the answers to all of these. I'm surprised by how many people actually did this meme. Must be because it's festive, who knows.

I really hate driving in the white stuff myself. The kids had their first snow-day today. We are supposed to get 5-10 inches. I didn't have to work either, so yay for me, except having to stay home with two wild little girls, ugghh. This was supposed to be my catch-up day (sigh).

I'd like to stop exchanging with my husband too, but we wouldn't receive a darn thing if we didn't.

My aunt was always the hardest person to buy for too. Fortunately she's in her nineties now so she just serenely accepts whatever you offer her and smiles pleasantly.

I love the Grinch too, but my absolute favorite is the old Christmas Classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Even now that movie transports me all the way back to the peace and joy of my childhood. I dare say it is magical. :)

This season Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Frosty the Snowman and four more holiday classics are all available in one beautiful keepsake package: The Christmas Classics DVD Box-Set. It even comes with a bonus music CD! You can buy this wherever DVDs are sold, but it's also available at http://www.christmasclassics.tv. I only know about it because I work with the company, but it's something my family and I will treasure for many holiday seasons to come. I invite you to be part of the magic this holiday season, and share it with your family as well.

Happy holidays!
