Christmas Get to Know Me

My blog friend Karen Beth turned me on to this and I couldn't wait to fill it out.
Thanks KB, Happy Holidays!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper and real ribbon

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real if I had the space, for now, my little 3' table top has to do the job

3. When do you put up the tree? First weekend in December

4. When do you take the tree down? Weekend after New Years Day

5. Do you like eggnog? SoyNog yes, eggnog I like it but would be a snotty mess if I drank it

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Cassette recorder - it was red and I was in love with recording myself

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, I have three. One was Grandma Nettie's when she was in the Arnold Home, I love it. One of them is tiny and inside a gourd, Wendy gave it to me this year, it is in my office.

8. Hardest person to buy for? This year, everyone, I don't have any money to spend so I don't have to worry about it.

9. Easiest person to buy for? Emily, always.

10. Mail or E-Mail Christmas Cards? Mail, the post people are heroes this time of year

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Lets not go there, everything was given to me with good intentions and love and that is really all the matters.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Christmas in Connecticut

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Didn't shop this year, but did plan on what to make people back in July.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes, to the Salvation Army, but not re-gifted - I think that is bad juju

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Any cookie made by my Mom - favorite are her springerle cookies

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? White, clear, anything but colored.

17. Favorite Christmas song? anything off the Johnny Mathis Christmas Album in my parents basement or Barbara Streisand's crazy version of Jingle Bells. To be honest, Christmas music most of the time makes me sad and home sick and I only listen to it when I know I can handle it (on a non emo day).

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Home is in Michigan with my family not here in San Francisco - but I have not been there for Christmas since I moved here in 1996. Traveling during the holidays, the mere thought of it will give me a panic attack although I don't know what is worse, crying on Christmas or traveling and waking up in my childhood home on Christmas. Maybe next year, I will go home.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? Yes, because I have 'twas the night before Christmas memorized

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel, but my little tree would fall over with her on top, so I don't have her on there right now.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? If there are presents to open, Christmas morning please.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Commercialism, Greediness and Grinchy people

23. Favorite ornament theme or Color? White lights, with silver ornaments, they reflect the light nicely.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Did you read how long it has been since I have been home for Christmas? I don't remember what my Mom used to cook when I was home. Come to think about it, I have not had a Christmas dinner since I moved out here, that is REALLY sad. We usually have what is in the house, cheese, crackers, soup, frozen meal, etc.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I want to be able to go to Mass on Christmas Eve with my husband and sleep in on Christmas day.
