CHRISTMAS FUN

I found this on two sites I frequent: Camy Tang and Cheryl Wyatt. They are two great writers, so if you want to get to know them better, click on their names and check their sites out.  They have really great blogs.

Anyway, I got a kick out of their posts and thought I’d spread it around.  It’s fun.  If you do it too, let me know, so I can come visit your site and learn more about you.

4. When do you take the tree down? Christmas weekend.

5. Do you like eggnog? Oh yeah! It’s not Christmas without eggnog

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Gosh, I can’t remember.  When I was 16 I got an art table (I used to draw)..that was way cool!

18. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither. We have a red bow.

19. Open the presents Christmas eve or Christmas day? Growing up it was open them ALL on Christmas EVE, then Santa’s stockings on Christmas Day. Now it’s one Christmas Eve and the rest Christmas Day.

  1. Okay, I’ll play since I heard of this via Travis…

    1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I hate wrapping, although I love unwrapping.

    2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial for me as well. I hate the pine needles and I love that I only pay for a tree once that last for year, prelit at that. 🙂

    4. When do you take the tree down? 90% of the time New Years Day.

    5. Do you like eggnog? On occasion. It’s a little too ‘rich’ for me, but I do enjoy it from time to time.

    6. Favorite gift received as a child? Hmmmm, don’t know….maybe Baby Alive? Or a Big Wheel? (Yes, I’m a girl, but I loved those things.)

    7. Hardest person to buy for? Husband (He’s very particular about with his taste.) Sister…she’s doesn’t ever drop hints on what she wants so I have to figure it out on my own.

    8. Do you have a nativity scene? I did, but unfortunately it was so delicate it broke.

    9. Mail or email Christmas cards? Email…oh no, too impersonable, unless you double it with a card you snail mailed too. Regular (snail mail) proves you put more thought and time into it.
