A Christmas Meme!

...and I stole it from Suz who stole it from Margaret who got it from email.

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy this entire email (or blog post, since that's applicable here) and paste into a new e-mail that you can send or blog that you can post. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you. "Tis the Season to be NICE!" Notice... 25 questions. Definitely keeping with the season.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper. Sometimes at all costs. I've wrapped a gift bag in wrapping paper just to make the present easier to hide.

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial.

3. When do you put up the tree? Day after Thanksgiving. Yes, instead of shopping on Black Friday I decorate the house.

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually on New Year's weekend, but lately I've been leaving it up until Epiphany passes.

5. Do you like eggnog? Sometimes.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Um... money.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? No.

8. Hardest person to buy for? DH.

9. Easiest person to buy for? B.

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Hrm... I honestly can't say... I don't remember anything horrid enough to say it was the worst.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, if I remember to put them together.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? That's a hard question. There are so many good ones. Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Gremlins, Nightmare Before Christmas. Gremlins. It might have to be Gremlins.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? When I start panicking about it.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Absolutely not.

15. Favorite thing to eat and drink at Christmas? Food. Ok. I like a good Christmas cookie or a cherry pie. And hot chocolate is the drink of the season (when I spike it with brandy or rum)

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Neither.

17. Favorite Christmas song? The Chimney Song by Bob Rivers.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay. At. Home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers? I think so. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder/Donner, Blitzen (as named in Clement Moore's "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (pop culture calls this 'Twas the Night Before Christmas'). And Rudolph if you want to buy into popular culture.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither. I'd like a star, DH likes an angel. A Santa hat usually ends up on top.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The incessant Christmas carols being foisted upon me by co-workers, malls, or radio stations that start playing them non-stop 2 weeks before Thanksgiving.

23. Favorite thing about the Christmas Holidays? The time off I take from work to decompress and be with my family.

24. Most Memorable gift? The tickets to Phantom of the Opera that DH got a few years ago before the show ended it's run in San Francisco.

25. What's the one thing you seem to never get done at Christmas time? Cleaning the house.
