Christmas Traditions

I have seen this on quite a few blogs lately, so I thought I would do it myself.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper. I love to wrap gifts nicely for everyone. To me, something in a bag just screams no effort.

2. Real tree or Artificial?
Ours is artificial and I love it.

3. When do you put up the tree? 
 Since I don't have Thanksgiving meals at my house, I always put up my tree early. I love to be able to actually enjoy my Christmas decor.

4. When do you take the tree down?
After New Years sometime...
5. Do you like eggnog? 
I've never tried it.
6. Favorite gift received as a child?
It is hard to narrow it down to just one. I always received great gifts.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?
8. Hardest person to buy for?
My mother. She is very particular in what she likes.

9. Easiest person to buy for?
Brad's grandmother. She likes just about anything. Usually she likes everything I have so she is happy if I get her something like mine that she has mentioned she likes.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever?
No idea.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)?
The Santa Clause
(One, two and three)

and Elf

"The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear."

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Before Thanksgiving. I like to get mine done early so I don't have to worry about it.

14. Ever recycled a Christmas present?
Not that I can think of.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
All the sweats. Mmmm 
I absolutely love it when the holiday drinks come out in Starbucks.
That little read cup sure makes a difference :)
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree?
17. Favorite Christmas song?
   I enjoy most Christmas songs but the one that I usually find myself singing the most is
"All I Want for Christmas is You"

We travel to see both families

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? 
You know Dasher and Dancer
And Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
And Donner and Blitzen.
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer...
20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
Neither. I use those sparkly "sprigs" 
Sorry I don't know the technical term for it.

Christmas eve with Brad's family, Christmas day with mine.
