*Christmas Traditions*

Christmas Traditions

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Definitely wrapping paper. I think it's a lot "funer" to unwrap presents. 

2. Real tree or Artificial? We have an artificial tree. But when I have children I'm definitely going to do a real tree for a few years. 

3. When do you put up the tree? I think right after Thanksgiving is appropriate to put up your Christmas tree, so that's usually when we do ours, if not later. 
4. When do you take the tree down?  After the New Year. It's so sad when it comes down, makes our apartment look so bare.

5. Do you like eggnog? Never tried it.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Definitely life-sized Barbie!! It was great because I was able to wear her clothes too. :)
7. Do you have a nativity scene?  Of course! Why wouldn't you? He's the reason for the season! :)
8. Hardest person to buy for?  My father, he has everything.
9. Easiest person to buy for?  My mother or my fiance's mother, they're happy with anything they get. I love that.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I have yet to actually mail/email Christmas cards, but when I do I will definitely mail.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever? No Christmas present could be the worst, it's the thought that counts, and besides there's some families who don't receive any  or could afford any gifts, so you should be thankful you're even getting a gift. :P
12. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)?The Grinch who Stole Christmas. (True meaning of Christmas!)


Charlie Brown Christmas

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually in October, but this year I started in November.
14. Ever recycled a Christmas present? Once! When I was 13 or so, I forgot to ask my parents for money for a gift that I had to give the next day so I improvised and gave something I really liked that I haven't used to one of my friends. I know, bad. haha
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Christmas cookies!!
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? I like clear, but the fiance wanted blue lights.. so I listened. lol
17. Favorite Christmas song? Santa Baby -- Mariah Carey
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? We travel, every year, but I will tell you this, when we have our own home and kids, everyone is coming to our home. haha.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?  I can attempt it. But I won't. 
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star. (My pink tree I didn't put up this year.. boo!)
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?  Tradition is, opening with my fiance's family Christmas Eve, and then with my family Christmas day, and my fiance and I are going to exchange at our apartment Christmas day later in the evening. 
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Nothing really, I mean if I would have to pick, definitely the traffic. It's hard to get from point A to B.. boo.
23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color? A cupcake ornament my best friend bought me.
  24. What do you want for Christmas this year? Michael Kors watch... ohhh I do I do I do!!! haha. No I'll be happy with whatever I get. :')
