My Answers:

1. Mostly gift bags but for some presents I still use wrapping paper.
2. Artificial all the way...had real ones growing up but artificial just is easier and doesn't aggravate the allergies.
3. Usually like a week before Christmas. This year I had it up right around beginning of December.
4. Usually either before or right after New Years.
5. Love eggnog!
6. No, never have had one.
7. As a kid it definitely was "A Christmas Story". 
8. Shortbread, specifically my grandmothers recipe.
9. At home. I never travel for Christmas. 
10.Currently none of those, a handmade paper santa from my son
11. Grumpy people at crowded stores.
12. Gross, Definitely not!
13. Spending time with family, eating yummy food, having time away from work. The excitement of my children.
14. Christmas Eve the kids open one present (pyjamas) and the rest are opened Christmas morning. Things have been this way (including the pjs) since i was a kid
15. Most likely.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
