Christmas Meme

Post  lindzee on Sat Dec 26, 2009 6:59 pm

Looking forward to some of you doing this - it was fun!!! Smile/happy

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I like wrapping paper, but do use gift bags as well.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. We had a real tree our first year living here and it was kind of a pain. And not very environmentally friendly.

3. When do you put up the tree? Any time after DH's birthday [November 20th], but never before. It is not allowed! Tongue

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually sometime after New Year's. I hate taking all the decorations down, it makes me sad.

5. Do you like eggnog? I like the light eggnog.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably any kind of dolls or babies or things like that.

7. Hardest person to buy for? DH's parents. They have everything or they could buy themselves everything.

8. Easiest person to buy for? Certain friends or DH.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes it is the Willow Tree one.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I think I did used to mail some, but that was a few years ago. I think next year I will attempt to send them again.

11. Worst Christmas ever? I don't think I have ever had a terrible Christmas.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? DH and I love "The Polar Express" and we watch it every year. It makes me teary eyed every time. My brother and I always loved watching "A Christmas Story" with Ralphie and his BB gun and I bought it for him a couple years ago.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I try to start at the end of November. This year I had almost everything bought the first week of December.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes. Who hasn't??

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Christmas baking and Christmas dinner.

16. Lights on the tree? Definitely! I like white lights best.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Oh Holy Night, The Little Drummer Boy and A Baby Changes Everything. Okay, there are lots!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Just sing the opening line to "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!"

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning. But we usually have two separate Christmases with different family: one on Christmas Eve one on Christmas Day. So I guess both.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People who forget about the Christmas spirit.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? We don't have a theme.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? DH's mom makes a great dinner with lots of my faves like turkey, sweet potatoes, etc.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year next year? A baby.

Ummmm, Holi? You got a Rub-a-Dub Dolly one year too?!? LOL!

I found this....curiously enough, the little girl looks remarkably like me as a kid!
http://www.inthe70s.com/toys/rubadubdolly0.shtml

Seems like other little girls loved that doll too! I pretty sure mine is still at my folks' house. Since they have only grandsons, I'm pretty sure that's one part of my childhood that my mom has not given to my brother and his kids (sense some anger there? Yeah, you got it). My doll would be about 33, maybe 34 years old, I'm guessing.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper.

3. When do you put up the tree? Day after Thanksgiving.
4. When do you take the tree down? January 2nd
5. Do you like eggnog? The taste isn't bad, but the texture is horrific.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? One year we got all this cabbage patch doll stuff. Buggy, dolls, bottles, everything. I loved it.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My husband. He never wants anything, and he is SUPER picky.
8. Easiest person to buy for? Kiddos
9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? E-mail. Perhaps one year I'll get fancy and send them by mail. But email is free!
11. Worst Christmas ever? I don't remember. I have no ill memories of Christmas per say. I remember being really sick in high school on Christmas and that stunk.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? A Christmas Story, Love Actually, It's a Wonderful Life, Home Alone.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I start early if I see a good sale. It can be summer time, I don't care, as long as it's on sale!
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes, as a kid.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? In my husbands Hungarian culture, they do the presents on Christmas Eve. However, in my family the tradition was to open pajamas Christmas Eve, and then do the big presents on Christmas morning.
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? The amount of pressure people put on themselves to go crazy and shop like mad men. It's ridiculous. We had a small Christmas and that was fine.
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I like the old glass bulbs we had as kids, all different colors.
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Wasn't a similar version of this in question 15. I'll say it again, HAM. I also do artichokes and butternut squash.
