1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Depends on how hard it is to wrap!

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial - don't have to worry about the cats drinking the poisonous water that way, and it is easier on my asthma

3. When do you put up the tree?At home - Whenever my sister and I can get my parents out of the house long enough - it is really hard to decorate with them around. At work - Thanksgiving night

4. When do you take down the tree? At home - same problem as putting it up. At work - New Year's night

5. Do you like eggnog? Depends on the brand.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? A toss up between two. One was a black and white plastic cow that drank water from her trough when you pumped her tail, then gave "milk". Always kind of bothered me that you had to take her udders off and put in this little tablet to make the water turn white, though - just seemed wrong somehow. My other favorite was a little stuffed cougar that my sister gave me when I was two - not only did I drag her around all throughout my childhood, but she has gone everywhere I have lived, including my college dorm!

7. Hardest person to buy for? my parents - they really need hobbies!

8. Do you have a nativity scene? A nativity scene? No - we have a ton of them between my sister and me. Her favorite is a ceramic one that her friends made for her by hand. I've never figured out how they did that! I think my favorite is one that I got from a little shop in my hometown - it is made entirely of bells. (I collect bells)

9. Mail or email cards? Both - I always mail them, but I have a cousin and a friend that love the silly e-cards, so I usually send them those, too.

10.Worst Christmas gift ever received? The same Bee Gees tape over and over again for every gift giving occasion! (My ex could never remember which one he had given me, so he always got the same one. After nine years, you would think law of averages would have gotten me a different one eventually!)

11. Favorite Christmas movie? The George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol, and the real How The Grinch Stole Christmas (NOT Jim Carrey!!)

12. When do you start shopping for Christmas? As soon as this Christmas is over! I'm usually done by Halloween and picking up little extra things until the week or so before.

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Both - One on Christmas Eve, the rest on Christmas Day

21. Most annoying thing about this time of year. Crowds

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? Any and all

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Depends on the gift.

2. Real tree or artificial? I put up an artificial that is about 30 years old because of household tradition. We call it 'The Charlie Brown Tree' because it's an old anquite and it's one of the first artificial trees ever made. Mom and Dad bought it when they first got married for their first Christmas in the 70's. So it's kind of special and I hope to inherit it when I get a place of my own. Which using the same artifical tree for years on end is very environmentaly friendly. If it wasn't for tradition, I would put up a potted real tree then go plant the pot after the holiday. There are environmental advantages to that and I've heard of that practice done before.

3. When do you put up the tree? Any time in December. I've put a tree up two days before Christmas before.

4. When do you take down the tree? Late January usually.

5. Do you like eggnog? Blah! That's my answer to that question.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? The chocolate slimline halter for my favorite cow that I got from my Grandparents. I still have it to this day and have used it in many cattle shows.

7. Hardest person to buy for? My Dad. I find things that are him but at the same time he don't really need them.

8. Do you have a nativity scene? Yeah we have two.

9. Mail or email cards? Mail, I like to make my own cards if I have time.

10.Worst Christmas gift ever received? I don't think I have one... If someone took the time to give me a gift, it wouldn't be looked at as bad. It's the thought of the gift that counts to me, the fact someone was kind and thoughtful enough to think of me. So no gift is looked at as 'worst gift'.

11. Favorite Christmas movie? Elf. I love Will Ferell. He's so funny and sweet in that movie. I love characters like 'Buddy' who seem so sweet and innocent.

12. When do you start shopping for Christmas? December 26 of the following year and all through out the year at a slow gradual pace. I buy gifts as I see them and when I think of a person.

13. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes. Hey why not?! Recycling is good for the planet and as long as it's something that hasn't been used and abused, why not? It's the thought behind the gift not the gift itself.

14. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? BUCKEYES!!!! (Ok, not the real ones because they are poisonous but the ones that are candies. Every Ohioian knows what the heck I'm talking about.)

15. Lights on the tree? Uh duh, yeah.

16. Favorite Christmas Song ? Elton John's 'Step into Christmas'. Yes I love Sir Elton's music, always have.

17. Travel at Christmas or stay at home? Stay home and in neighboring area.

18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? No... I know I failz as a Game Warden. *sigh*

19. Angel on the treetop or a Star? Angel

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Use to be Christmas Eve, now it's Christmas Day.

21. Most annoying thing about this time of year. Going to work and listening to nothing but Christmas music all night long and it's the same 30 Christmas songs we've heard over and over again on the loud speaker.

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? Green (in any shade) with gold.

23. Favorite thing about this time of year? Seeing all my relatives and spending time with them.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? I have to agree with 'North of the Border', I would totally dig a better job than the one I got. Maybe one where I have an office, a decent benefits package, and paid vacation. A job that is related to the degree I went to school for. Plus, the nation and automakers to get away from oil dependance. But if I can't get any of those, one of those cool table top rock relaxation fountains would be nice, Santa.

25. Who is most likely to respond to this? Hopefully Everyone! But mostly, I tag Commander MM, and MaryAnne to respond to this. *Tap, tap, tap* PPSSST! Hey, Gang it's December, time to get Christmasy!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Usually wrapping paper. I don't really care much for gift bags.

2. Real tree or artificial? i usually go with artificial for a number of reasons, one being the fact that an artificial tree does not cause death to the tree, and the little woodland creatures do not lose their happy homes.

3. When do you put up the tree? BC (before cats) it went up the day after Thanksgiving. Now, it's a little later so the cats have less time to knock it over.

4. When do you take down the tree? Before January 1st, per my momma's instructions many years agao.

5. Do you like eggnog? Some of it, but not all. I do sort of like the non-alcoholic Southern Comfort brand (tasty!).

6. Favorite gift received as a child? It's sort of a toss up, but as I have pondered the question, I have determined it must the Enterprise Bridge along with Capt. Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy. It had the captain's chair, the science console, and a transporter! :p

7. Hardest person to buy for? Has to be my parents (As my sister has already stated).

8. Do you have a nativity scene? yes, I have one that one of my sister's got me when they realized I did not have one ("everyone must have a nativity scene")

9. Mail or email cards? I like both, but I always try to send the mailed ones to family and close friends, it seems more personal some how.

10.Worst Christmas gift ever received? I really can not think of one.

11. Favorite Christmas movie? The old classics Charlie Brown, Frosty, Rudolph, and of course, Miracle on 34th Street :popcorn:

12. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I always say I'm going to start early, but some how i do not get to it until after Thanksgiving usually.

13. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Who? Me? Would I do such a thing???:innocent:

14. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Hawiian Pie (when Momma makes it)

15. Lights on the tree? Of course - the more, the better - multi colored, chasing, blinking, synchronized to music - I do love the light show!

16. Favorite Christmas Song ? Probably Snoopy v. the Red Baron, and then maybe Away in a Manger

17. Travel at Christmas or stay at home? Stay home (I sure don't want to be on the road for a long period of time on Geezer day).

18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Absolutely....Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and of course there is always Rudolph!

19. Angel on the treetop or a Star? Angel

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? One on Christmas eve because Daddy can never wait, and the rest on Christmas Day.

21. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The crowds and the traffic. Could also be the fact that some of the folks at work feel like you OWE them a gift.

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? No theme, no color scheme, but if the ornaments light up and talk that makes it even better.

23. Favorite thing about this time of year? The Christmas lights and Carriage rides with my sisters, but also the good times spent with family and friends.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? I can not really think of anything I really need, but a better job with better pay which actually requires the degree I have.

25. Who is most likely to respond to this? Not really sure, but I did reply to make my sister happy!

I actually got this through email, so I just copied it onto here!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Depends on the gift. Wrap it if it's in a box...but use a gift bag if it has a funny shape and is too hard to wrap.

2. Real tree or Artificial? I have a wee artificial tree...but my fiance' wants to plant a real one outside the church.

3. When do you put up the tree? Don't have to put it up...just decorate it.

4. When do you take the tree down? In January.

5. Do you like eggnog? Very much...makes a great coffee creamer.

6. Do you sing Christmas Carols? Yes, although I prefer playing them on the flute.

7. Hardest person to buy for? My Dad

8. Easiest person to buy for? Mom. She tells us right out what she wants.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? sorta both...I make a photocard and email it to Mom...who then puts it in her Xmas mailings.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A little hairbow that played Jingle Bells when you squeezed it. Terribly annoying.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Home Alone

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? After Thanksgiving.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes. I don't like chocolate covered cherries...but my sister found someone who did.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cinnamon rolls on Xmas morning.

16. Lights on the tree? Yes. Had to replace them when the girls here discovered that American lights don't use Thai voltage.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Deun flambeu Jeanette Isabella...because I can sing it in French. I also like O Holy Night, but I can't sing that high, so I just play it on the flute.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Define home. I live in Thailand, so I'm home, but I'm not with family, so I'm traveling.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Of course.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning. Why get up in the morning if there's no presents?

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? In Thailand, they celebrate the Christmas season, but not Christmas Day. Everyone goes to work and the kids have school on the 25th. A common question is "When are you doing Christmas?" and the answer is usually a Saturday in December.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color. Ornaments we (my sisters and I) made when we were kids.24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Something that does not include rice or noodles but does include fresh bread.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Christian music CDs.

26. Who is most likely to respond to this? I never know.

27. Who is least likely to respond to this? I'll say Zach...cuz last time I did...he responded just to prove me wrong.

I noticed that my email version didn't have question 6.

6. Favorite gift received as a child: My cabbage patch doll, Homer. Jam got one too, Suzanne, and our older sister Deb got Rhonda. That was the only year we got the "hot" item, as Mom had a second-cousin who worked at Toys R Us and our grandma had her set the dolls aside when the shipment arrived at the store. I have yet to meet anyone who has a male cabbage patch doll like mine. Homer would be worth something today if I hadn't loved on him so much. Still do actually.
