'Tis the Season

I found this meme over at Smoky Mountain Family Historian and thought I'd play along.

Wrapping paper or gift bags? I gave up on wrapping two Christmases ago...gift bags for me!

Real tree or Artificial? - Artificial for me; allergic to pine.

When do you put up the tree? The day after Thanksgiving.

When do you take the tree down? New Year's Day.

Do you like eggnog? Yes (the fake stuff), but it doesn't like me.

Favorite gift received as a child?  A Cabbage Patch doll; it was a gift from my grandfather.

Hardest person to buy for?  My mother-in-law.

Easiest person to buy for? Me.

Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, but I'm not sure where it is.

Mail or email Christmas cards? Both; those with email get a bonus ;)

Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Can't really think of anything.

Favorite Christmas Movie? I'm not really into the old-fashion movies.  But as a tradition, my hubby and I have watched Christmas Vacation every year since we met, and added Elf when it came out.

When do you start shopping for Christmas?  The Friday after Thanksgiving; when everyone's pushing and shoving at the store, I'm in my PJ's clicking away in cyberspace.

Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No.

Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?  Cookies!  Oh, and Baker's Square's Candy Can pie (our Baker's Square closed and there's not one close by...I'm bummed that I won't get it this year).

Lights on the tree? You bet!

Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night, I just love Clay Aiken's performance of this song!

Travel at Christmas or stay home? Normally stay home, but this year we're visiting my mom.

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?  Dasher, Prancer, Donner, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Vixen, and of course Rudolph (okay, I had to look two of the up).

Angel on the tree top or a star? We got nothing.

Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Both, we do some on Christmas Eve and some on Christmas Day.

Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Rude people (okay that's the most annoying thing for me all the time, but they're even worse at the holidays).

Favorite ornament theme or color? Don't have one.

Favorite for Christmas dinner?  Turkey dinner with the fixings!

What do you want for Christmas this year? Not much.  I would like an electric throw (my blankie's not working to well these days).  And no snow on our driving days...I get really nervous and don't want to freak out and decide not to go visit my mom).

I'm also adding a question: 

What is your favorite thing about the holidays?  Decorations...my husband and I love the lights and driving around to see what everyone's done outside.
