    1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Depends, but bagging is easiest
    2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial
    3. When do you put up the tree? When not boycotting, Black Friday.
    4. When do you take the tree down? After Epiphany...although my current record is June.
    5. Do you like egg nog? Yes, just bought some...now to doctor it up.
    6. Clear or colored lights? clear
    7. Do you have a nativity scene? Well, I did receive one as a gift. It was hideously ugly and tacky, so it got tossed. I need to buy one. I'm thinking I like the Lenox one. My mom won't give up hers...doesn't she know my grandmother painted that? And we all know, granddaughter trumps daughter in handing down of Christmas decorations...right...who's with me?!?!
    8. Hardest person to buy for? The in laws
    9. Easiest person to buy for? DH, but he's also the most expensive to buy for so...
    10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail
    11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? ugly and tacky nativity scene
    12. Favorite Christmas movie? A Christmas Story "Where's the glue?" "We're out of glue." "You used up all the glue on purpose! Notafinger!!" With as much dignity as he could muster, the Old Man gathered up the sad remains of his shattered Major Award. Later that night, alone in the backyard, he buried it next to the garage. Now I could never be sure, but I thought that I heard the sound of "Taps" being played. Gently.

    18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes
    19. Angel on the tree top or a star? Again when not boycotting, I have a Victorian Teddy Bear dressed as Santa. There's never been an angel on my tree. And, the star only lasted 1 or 2 years on the tree when I was child. We're really not star or angel people...
    20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning preferably!
    21. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Not having the time/money to spend with/on the people you care most about.

    1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrap. And they all must match. This year I ordered the personalized gift tags and then the wrapping paper to match.
    2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial
    3. When do you put up the tree? It depends on how bad the mail is. Right now the tree is stuck in storage so sadly, it is not going up.
    4. When do you take the tree down? Usually the first week of January.
    5. Do you like egg nog? Just the name makes me gag a little.
    6. Clear or colored lights? Clear and sparkly. I do have a couple of 4 foot skinny foyer trees that I often put just red lights on. Sadly, also stuck in storage.
    7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes- I have a couple of very beautiful ones.
    8. Hardest person to buy for? My husband. Anytime he wants something he just buys it. Hate that!
    9. Easiest person to buy for? Myself! I may actually wrap one up this year!
    10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, though they aren't all out yet! Kind of like, the cobbler's sons never having shoes.
    11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? My mother went thru a really ugly clothing kick for a few years. Luckily she's moved on to jewelry.
    12. Favorite Christmas movie? I don't really have one, I do however have some that you couldn't pay me to watch.
    13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? The day after Thanksgiving. This year I fizzled in the middle and just finished.
    14 . Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Abso-stinking-lutely. Just don't tell anyone.
    15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? The shrimp tree that my mom always makes with the little Santa on top.
    16. Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night. Especially if sung by my Uncle during the Christmas Eve midnight service at church.
    17. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Travel- though luckily not far this year!
    18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes!
    19. Angel on the tree top or a star? Always a star- a beautiful crystal one. It's kind of heavy. When I was little we had a tree that snowed and there was an angel on top. The snow would rain down out of her skirt. Kind of weird.
    20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Eve with DH's family, Christmas morning with mine.
    21. Most annoying thing about this time of year? People who drive like idiots.
    22. Favorite ornament theme or color? My mother has a tree with all crystal clear ornaments and each year she changes the color of the lights. It is very pretty. My main tree is usually a mish mash of randomness. I usually also have an all snowman tree and an all Santa tree. I should have an all glitter tree!
    23. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Party potatoes.
    24.Sleep in or up at the crack of dawn? Sleep in until my niece calls because she can't stand it anymore.
    25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Nicki's dad to come home.

    Hee! Hee!
    1. Already may have bought it- and you know it will be pretty. I love to look at all the pretty packages under the tree without even caring what is inside them.
    15. She takes a table top styrofoam tree and wraps it in aluminum foil. She then peels and deveins what must be hundreds of shrimps, marinates them in a little garlic and white wine and then attaches them to the tree with toothpicks. It usually sits atop a shiny silver platter also scattered with shrimps for those of us who are too in a hurry to pluck them off the tree. She makes her own cocktail sauce too. I am thinking the chef gene skipped my generation.
    19. It was maybe a 7 foot tall artificial tree that plugged in. The trunk was hollow and under the tree was a a giant reservoir that held little teeny styrofoam pellets. You turned it on and the pellets would travel up the trunk and shoot out the top, under the angel's skirt and fall down the tree. Many of them would stick to the branches like snow and then many would collect in the reservoir and travel back up and fall again. As a child it was just mesmerizing to watch. My mother does not have fond memories of all the vacuuming.

    A present? For me? Yay!

    I like that shrimp tree idea. I would probably just get shrimp rings and arrange them on the tree. Must look great on the table.

    That tree sounds like a hoot but I can only imagine the mess factor.
