Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here’s what you’re supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy this entire post and paste onto your blog. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Tis the season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both, depends on the size of the gift but I do better with bags.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial.

3. When do you put up the tree? I don’t put one up at home but the one at my Mom’s house goes up sometime after 12/5.  My college roommate’s Bday is 12/5 and we never did Christmas until after 12/5 and I still don’t.

4. When do you take the tree down? New Years week.

5. Do you like eggnog? yes with booze 🙂 

6. Favorite gift received as a child? A play house that my dad built.  He built it right in front of me as a shed but Christmas morning it was painted and dressed up with a big bow and the address 2222 1/2 Pepper Rd painted on it, that was our address in Florida. 

7. Hardest person to buy for?  My brother, he lives in Austin now and I don’t always know what he needs or is into if he doesn’t give me a list.

8. Easiest person to buy for? Leslie, I aways have some idea for her.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, at my Mom’s house, it as always been my job to put it out.  Kinda funny for those of you who know me don’t ya think.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail when I get around to it but I always email my Solstice greetings on the Winter Solstice.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Things that were just given to give a gift that I knew was a “regift”.

13. When do you start shopping? When I have money 🙂

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?  Baked goods, including fruit cake, we have an old fruit cake receipt that our family has made for years.  Yes we send them to people, and if the usual folks don’t get one they are calling wondering when it will be arriving.  My brother and I call them booze logs since they are soaked in brandy.

16. Lights on the tree? Old fashion big colored lights

This was fun, made me think of some fun Christmas memories to start off the holiday season.  Hope everyone enjoys the holiday season and doesn’t put to much stress on themselves.

Bright Blessings!
