Christmas Survey :)

Today is my first day of Christmas vacation! :)  
I am work/school/child free until Jan. 9!!!  

Kristin, at A Teeny Tiny Teacher, posted a survey and I thought, why not?  I love getting these in emails.  So, here goes...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?Either.  I try to wrap more than I use bags because I think people would rather tear the paper off when opening a gift and I don't want them to be disappointed.  I don't know why I think that though because I'm not disappointed when I get a gift in a bag.  Hmm...

2. Real tree or artificial?

Artificial.  We always had one when I was growing up and I've just continued the tradition.  However, now my parents always get a real tree.  Go figure.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Usually around December 1.  We were late this year though.  I think we finally got it put up on the 10th.  Now it feels like the month has flown by. :(

4. When do you take the tree down?
No set date, but always after the new year.

5. Do you like eggnog?
6. Favorite gift received as a child?
Is it bad that I don't know this?  I have a very bad memory...

 7. Do you have a nativity scene?
Yes, I actually got my first "nice" nativity this year!

8. Hardest person to buy for?My husband's youngest brother.  Ugh.

9. Easiest person to buy for?

Probably my husband.  But he does make a list.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Mail.  But I didn't mail an this year.  Remember how I said this month has flown by?

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?

I can't think of a particular gift, but one year {I think I was 13 or 14} every.single.gift I got from my parents...I didn't like!  I tried to act like I did, but they could tell.  I felt so bad!  They had bought me lots of clothes and I didn't like any of them!  We returned everything. :(

12. Favorite Christmas movie?
It's a Wonderful Life, The Santa Claus, & A Christmas Story

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
The week before.  I still have a few more things to buy.

14. Ever recycled a present?
Yes.  I already have this year.  Don't judge.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Sausage balls, cheese straws, and dressing.

16. Clear lights or colored lights on a tree?
I like both. :)

17. Favorite Christmas song?
Baby, It's Cold Outside and The Christmas Song

18. Travel at Christmas or stay at home?
Travel.   Always.  The hubs and I have Christmas at home.  Then we go to my parents' house for breakfast and gifts with them.  Then we either travel out of town to my Grandmother's house or his Grandmother's house.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?


20. Angel or star on top of the tree?
Neither!  This year I found a snowman head tree topper half price at Big Lots.  It's silly, but I think it's cute! :)

21. Open the presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
When I was little my parents always let me open one gift on Christmas Eve.  Now, me AND the hubs get to open one. :)  Plus, my parents buy something for our dogs!   So, they get their treats then, too.  Then we do everything else on Christmas morning.
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
Other people.  As in, people I don't know.  Ugh.

23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color?

I have a lot of favorite ornaments!  My mom let me have most of my childhood ornaments when I moved out, so they are all special.

24. What do you want for Christmas?

I want to win the lottery.  Safe travels.  Good health.  Happiness.

Funny, I don't mind gift bags either, but I worry other people want to tear the paper. Especially kids.
