Christmas Decorations

Here are some fun get­ting to know you Christ­mas ques­tions you can share with friends and fam­i­ly at a fam­i­ly gath­er­ing or par­ty. I always find it inter­est­ing in how oth­ers cel­e­brate the hol­i­day sea­son. If you don’t cel­e­brate Christ­mas you can eas­i­ly change the ques­tions to fit your hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tion. My sis­ter and her fam­i­ly arrive late tonight and I can­not wait to have some fun with every­one. You know I’m on “best week­end ever” notice for Made­lyn and Isabel­la. I LOVE being their aunt. I have a week­end of fun all planned out that includes lots of hot choco­late, s’mores, cook­ie bak­ing, hol­i­day light look­ing and presents. It’s going to be a fab­u­lous week­end.

1. Wrap­ping paper or gift bags? This year it’s all about Gift Bags. 
2. Real tree or arti­fi­cial? We have an Arti­fi­cial Tree  
3. When do you put up the tree? The day after Thanks­giv­ing.
4. When do you take the tree down? Well one year it was MARCH! It’s just not as fun tak­ing it down as it is putting it up. 
5. Do you like eggnog? Yes, but my Dad’s is my favorite.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? When I was around 4 or 5 I got a Sketchy Doll (the name is some­thing like that) I loved that doll and my Dad found one for me on eBay and sur­prised me. You can read about it here.
7. Do you have a Nativ­i­ty scene? No
8. Hard­est per­son to buy for? My DAD! Sor­ry Dad but it is true.

10. Worst Christ­mas Gift you ever received? Hon­est­ly, I have nev­er received a gift I did­n’t like.
11. Mail or email Christ­mas cards? Mail, I feel some things should be done the “old fash­ioned” way and mail­ing Christ­mas Cards is one of them but this year I have not sent out a one.
12. Favorite Christ­mas Movie? It’s a Won­der­ful Life
13. When do you start shop­ping for Christ­mas? Decem­ber and yes I tell myself every year that I am not going to wait until Decem­ber to start shop­ping and here I sit once again still shop­ping.
14. Have you ever recy­cled a Christ­mas present? Nev­er

16. Clear lights or col­ored on the tree? I’ve always had and loved white lights but Ans­ley has talked me into C7 col­ored lights like they have on the trees in Hol­lis­ter, one of her past favorite stores and now we have red and white lights to enhance our pep­per­mint tree theme.
17. Favorite Christ­mas song? Holy Night is my absolute favorite and it does­n’t mat­ter who sings it.
18. Trav­el at Christ­mas or stay home? Have trav­eled pret­ty much every year to mom and dad’s house.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Nei­ther, this year I have 3 real­ly long pep­per­mint orna­ments and a clus­ter of red shiny orna­ments on top. 
21. Open the presents Christ­mas Eve or morn­ing? When the girls were lit­tle we opened one on Christ­mas eve and the rest Christ­mas morn­ing, now we cel­e­brate on Christ­mas Eve. I love the room dark with just the glow from our tree and a few years ago it actu­al­ly snowed here on Christ­mas Eve. It was the most mag­i­cal Christ­mas ever and one I will nev­er for­get.
