1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Mostly I do bags, but I have wrapped a couple of things this year!

2. Real tree or artificial?
Artificial. I like real trees, but I always feel like they're going to catch on fire.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Whenever I get around to it! Sometime between the Friday after Thanksgiving and the week before Christmas!  :)

4. When do you take the tree down?
I hate it when people erase all hint of Christmas on December 26th. I keep it up at least until New Year's - and occasionally quite a bit longer!

5. Do you like eggnog?
Yuck, no. Hate it.

6. Favourite gift received as a child?
I guess it was these dolls my sister and I got when we were really little - like, I was four and she was two, maybe. They had their own little suitcases and wardrobes. We loved those dolls.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?

8. Hardest person to buy for?
I never know what to get my in-laws.

9. Easiest person to buy for?
Rob, I guess. If I don't know he tells me what to get!

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
I dunno - one of my grandmothers was a champion bad-gift-giver. I've gotten lots of bad gifts. Ugly stationery, bad-smelling perfume, jewelry that I would never wear in a million years... I really think she just picked things entirely at random.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Christmas cards must be mailed. It's like a law or something!

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
I have a really soft spot for White Christmas (even though I don't really love Bing Crosby).

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
I try to start pretty early - just whenever I see something I think somebody on my list would like!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
Yup. I'm a believer in recycling... but it has to be something I genuinely think the recipient would like.

15. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas?
Somebody in my family makes these chocolate oatmeal cookies that I love. I have the recipe someplace but I never think to make them myself.

16. Clear lights or coloured on the tree?
I like both, but I usually use colored.

17. What is your favourite Christmas song?
I can't decide. I like an awful lot of them.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
Travel, although not usually all that far. This year is a bit of an exception!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Sure. All I have to do is sing the song.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
Actually our two (small) trees have one of each. The angel came from my mother - and I don't remember where we got the star!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Christmas morning, always. (Although it was also tradition that my grandmother used to beg to get to open one on Christmas Eve.)

22. What I love most about Christmas?
Y'know, I love practically everything about Christmas. The lights, the decorations, the mood. (Except when people get all stressed, that part's not so great.)
