I'm feeling like scrooge...

[[found on Erin's Blog who found it on Sneaker Teacher's blog! ]]



[Wrapping paper or gift bags]
I put most gifts in bag with tissue, but prefer to open wrapped gifts


[Real tree or artificial]
We ALWAYS had a real tree growing up, but just put up a little fake tree here :(


[When do you put up the tree]
 The weekend after Thanksgiving


[When do you take the tree down]
The weekend after Christmas


[Do you like eggnog]
 Nope


[Hardest person to buy for]
Adam's parents...they never give us ideas


[Mail or email Christmas cards]
 We always mail out New Year's Cards! :)


[Favorite Christmas movie]
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 


[When do you start shopping for Christmas]
 After Thanksgiving


[Have you ever recycled a Christmas present]
No


[Favorite thing to eat at Christmas]
 Probably Steak and Crab Legs! :)


[Colored or Clear lights on the tree]
 Clear


[Favorite Christmas song]
 I love all Christmas music!


[Travel at Christmas or stay home]
Well...right now we travel to my family and then Adam's.  It takes several days and we're exhausted and irritated by the time we get home.  Hopefully this will be the last year of traveling!


[Can you name all of Santa's reindeer]
Eek!  No...Rudolph.  Dancer. Prancer. Donner. Blixen.  I give up!  I'm pretty sure the ones I listed aren't even real...haha!


[Angel, star, or ribbon at the top of the tree]
 Star


[Open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning]
 We always opened on gift [pajamas] on Christmas eve and the rest Christmas morning


[Favorite children's Christmas song]
 That Hawaiian Christmas song...Malikilikmaka or however it's spelled!  [you know...the one on National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation]


[Turkey or ham on Christmas day]
Both!


[What do you want for Christmas this year]
 I asked for several things, but the best part will be spending time with our families


[Does anyone in your family dress up as Santa]
No...but I think it would be fun to do once we have kids


[Age you discovered who Santa was]
I don't remember...it must now have been traumatizing! :)


[Hot chocolate or apple cider]
 I don't like any warm drinks


[Traditional colors (red & green) or other colors]
I like blue & white decorations


[Do you have any Christmas decorations on your roof]
No...we don't have any outside


[How does Santa get into your house? Chimney or magic key]
 Santa doesn't come to our house! :(


[Do you prefer gifts or gift cards]
Gifts


Hmm...I'm thinking we'll need to step up our Holiday 
wrapping
traditions
history
decor....
heck everything!!

  1. I have to say the only reason why i would feel like scrooge around this time of year is everytime I look into my wallet. It is really hard to be happy and chipper when there is nothing in it.

    Whitetail Woods Blog / Deer Hunting and Blackpowder Shooting at it’s best.
