Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?  Wrapping paper!  I love having piles of pretty wrapped gifts under the tree 🙂  AND wrapping paper smells like Christmas to me  :-p (more during the wrapping of gifts than the unwrapping though)  Kinda like the smoke from just blown out candles smells like birthdays.

2. Real tree or Artificial? I love real trees, but haven’t had one in many years.  Quite the allergen they are apparently!

3. When do you put up the tree? I would have it up the day after Halloween if anyone would let me 🙂  but I generally hold back till right after Thanksgiving- that night, if I’m not in a tryptophan daze.

4. When do you take the tree down? ugh, sometime in January.  Really begins the holiday letdown.

5. Do you like eggnog? Yes!  Though I’ve never tried it with alcohol.  Ooh, and there’s nothing better than an eggnog latte from Starbucks. Are they back yet??

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Oh wow… hm… following Niki’s answer, I remember one Christmas that I got a Walkman and a New Kids cassette- I was in heaven 🙂

7. Hardest person to buy for? Ryan’s dad

8. Easiest person to buy for? Sam 🙂

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, we got a really cute Little People one for Sam last year 10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I’m a big snail mail card fan, but I love ecards too!

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Not something I could mention here probably… but let’s say I’m not big on religious sculptural knick-nacks

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Charlie Brown Christmas, easy.  Also love Garfield Christmas, Claymation Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life, and The Santa Clause is pretty good too.   I do NOT like (hate even) A Christmas Story.  Ugh.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I start planning out gifts when my Christmas spirit hits, usually around August.  Usually don’t actually start buying till mid/late November though.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas presentNope, I don’t think I’ve ever regifted something.  I have possibly given someone something I’d received if I already had it or somesuch?  But the new receiver was aware of it.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Mmm, fudge, turkey, gingersnaps, eggnog, hot chocolate… there’s a lot!

16. Lights on the tree? Colored, twinkling… I love a full tree 🙂

17. Favorite Christmas song? There’s hardly a Christmas song that I don’t like!  Jolly Ol’ Sant Nicholas is one I’ve always been rather partial to though.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay at home? We never traveled when I was growing up, but Ryan and I have for the last several years.  This year we’re coming home for actual Christmas day though!

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer’s? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen & Rudolph.  (don’t ask me about the 7 dwarves though, I always miss one… Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sneezy, Bashful… unless I proclaim to the world that I can’t do it, then I can)

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? A star

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? 1 on Christmas Eve (something to “play with”), the rest Christmas morning.  plus all the Christmases at our families houses beforehand!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Not getting snow in Austin 😦

23. What theme or color are you using? Old fashioned Red & Green is my favorite 🙂

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I always have a list at … such a handy site, and I love using it, because I know how hard it is to shop for people when you have no ideas!


that’s really all he does.
