Christmas Meme

I found this over at Eva's and she encouraged everyone to do it. I love doing meme so I though this was perfect for this time of the year. I hope every one does it.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I love beautifully wrapped gifts – no bags!

2. Real tree or artificial? I like real but we have artificial. If we are living at the river next year I want a real tree.

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually around Thanksgiving

4. When do you take the tree down? Near New Year’s

5. Do you like eggnog? Oh yes! With all the trimmings!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? A stuffed puppy from my grandmother.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes we have a beautiful one.

8. Hardest person to buy for? My niece

9. Easiest person to buy for? Sue

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? My parents used to give me jewelry that would be “suitable to wear when I was older”, actually just an investment for my father. When contact with my parents was cut off I never saw the jewels again.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? You can email Christmas cards? I mail ours.

12. Favorite Christmas movie? I love Jimmy Stewart and It’s a Wonderful Life

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I usually shop all year long!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No I don’t think so.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cookies! Cakes! Candies!

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? I like colored lights but we have clear one.

17. Favorite Christmas song? What Child is This?

18. Travel for Christmas or stay home? It depends. I think this year we will stay home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? No, but remember, I have never had children.

20. Angel on the treetop or a star? Star

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? A little of both.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Too many party and events we are expected to attend.

23. What I love most about Christmas. The entire feel of the season.

Cassie dear sister, thanks for the glimpse into your heart.
Christmas Eve was the time for presents when I was a child, so in my house presents may be opened from 6 PM Christmas Eve.
We always had real trees and I tried to buy them with roots, now a days they kill the tree, so now I use artificial trees.
Love and warm fraternal hugs,

Hi Cassie Mom, This was nice to learn a few more things about you. It's A Wonderful Life is my and Mthc's favorite Xmas movie. Mthc is out Xmas shopping right now.

Luv and hugs,

Loved your answers, Cassie!

I laughed about Sue being the easiest to buy for... of course! I mean you couldn't possibly run out of things to buy for her sweet guy to spank her with!! LOL!

Love, Lilly
(I'm sure you get her very nice gifts - honest!)

I think a real tree would be very special somehow. I hope this is a wonderful season for you.

I hope Mthc got you something very nice on her shopping trip! One night you curl up with her and watch that movie together. Tom always does that with me and I love it.

LOL! Trust me I do know what Sue likes!
