Christmas Tag!

I was going to ignore this because my sister tagged her "family" instead of me by name. But she e mailed and reminded me, so here goes!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both
2. Real tree or Artificial? Sadly, artificial. We grew up with a real tree, but Wendell says they are" expensive and hazardous". If you know my husband, you are not surprised;)
3. When do you put up the tree? I like to get it up the day after Thanksgiving, but I will settle for any time that weekend.
4. When do you take the tree down? As soon as Wendell gets around to it. He is usually good about this.
5. Do you like eggnog? Love it. In liquid and ice cream form. Or a concrete from Nielson's. Yum.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? I am too old to remember. Probably an ID bracelet from my Jr. High boyfriend. I really wanted one. I am pretty sure I still have it. I was so cheesy in Jr. High;)
7. Hardest person to buy for? My Mother in law. Though she doesn't try to be difficult, and is always happy with what she gets.
8. Easiest person to buy for? My little kids. They are the reason Christmas is so fun. They are excited about everything.
9. Do you have a nativity scene? Lots. My favorite is the big one I bought on my honeymoon. And I love the olive wood one my mom bought in Jerusalem. Something about using wood from where the Savior actually stood is very sweet.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail because they are fun to put all over the house.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A gift cannot be bad.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Elf. Classic. And It's a Wonderful Life.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I refuse to think about Christmas until after Thanksgiving. But I should.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Probably
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? My mom's cheeseball and orange rolls. Yum.
16. Colored or Clear Lights? I like them both
17. Favorite Christmas song? I love love love the Carol of the Bells by the Trans Siberian Orchestra. It is one of my favorite parts of Christmas. I love a strong piece done by a great band.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Home
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? I'm trying not to cheat. Dasher Dancer Donner Blitzen COmet Cupid Vixen Rudolph I am forgetting one. 20. Angel on the tree top or a star? It is currently naked. I am waiting to find something I love.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Christmas music starting before Thanksgiving. And Christmas music that tries to sound sexy. Yikes!
