Christmas Meme!

I've been tagged, but this here meme thingy by Richmond. So here goes:

Christmas Meme

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both! Usually bags for those hard to wrap shapes and since I love fun paper and ribbons and stuff, wrapping for all the rest.

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial. I hate walking across the floor in my bare feet only to have a pine needle jammed between my toes!

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? Generally the first weekend in January.

5. Do you like eggnog? Yes, actually, I do.

6. Favorite gift you received as a child? I have no idea, but I'm guessing it was my stereo.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes. We got it as a gift when we got married. It is very nice, and all of the pieces are attached so they cannot get lost.

8. Hardest person to buy for? Everyone would say me.

9. Easiest person to buy for? My nephew and my son.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail. Please, email is cheap.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Anything my mother-in-law gives me. She's sweet but has no idea what to buy me.

12. Favorite Christmas movie? It is a toss up between A Smoky Mountain Christmas with Dolly Parton and White Christmas.

13. When do you start shopping? The day after Christmas and all through the year. I usually have all of my big shopping done by October. But then I pick up odds and ends in December like everyone else. I have a Christmas Closet that is always full.

14.Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Ummmm, next question.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Kolachi rolls. Not the cookies, the nut or apricot rolls. MMMMMM.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Colored inside, white outside.

17.Favorite Christmas song? Leroy the Redneck Reindeer.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? We used to travel home, now we are home.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeer? Yes, but they always leave out Leroy.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Right now, a star.

21. Open the presents on Christmas eve or morning? Christmas Morning - after a big hearty breakfast.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? People.

23. Do you have Jebus in your heart this Christmas? Jebus is a dear friend, who brought warmth north with him for Christmas. *wink*

24. What would you like for Christmas? An in-house counsel position near Pittsburgh, or near enough that I don't have more than an 1 1/2 hour commute. Please! Anyone? Buehler?

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I HOPE YOU GET A LITTLE SPECIAL SOMETHING, SOMETHING IN YOUR STOCKINGS! No seriously, I've been told that stockings are enjoyable - fishnet are preferable, but the DH likes the ones with the seam up the back of the leg . . . . . *snicker*
