25 Christmas Things About Me

I too borrowed this from Lori beacause I thought it would be fun to do during this festive Holiday Season... Feel free to grab this and post it on your blog!! It was a lot fun and really got my brain
thinking about Christmas!!!



Welcome to the Holiday edition of 25 Things About Me.Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy this entire post and paste into a new post. Then change all the answers so that they apply to you.


1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper most def! Each year it takes me the longest time to pick out the perfect paper. It's kinda my own personal ritual. And I wrap all the presents in the same paper!!


2. Real tree or Artificial? I always grew up with a real tree... But this year it will be fake just because our place is small and it's easier!! But when we get a biiger place you can bet your bottom I'll have a real tree every year! I just like them better!!!


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


4. When do you take the tree down? About a week after New Years!! I hate taking down the tree. It makes me sad!!


5. Do you like eggnog? I like it.. but it's not something I drink and look for every holiday season. If it's around I'll have a glass!!


6. Favorite gift received as a child? Every single year I would look forward to getting a new doll... It was usually something I saw at the fancy doll shop when I was growing up or it was a surprise doll. But I looked forward every year to my new doll and adding it to my collection. I still have all of them and hope to have a daughter to pass them on to!!


7. Hardest person to buy for? Brian's parents.....


8. Easiest person to buy for? Brian, hands down


9. Do you have a nativity scene? NO....


10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I mail mine..That is if I have the time to get them out... I bought them early this year and was ahead of the game!!!


11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A used candle...


12. Favorite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Story... Especially when the play it for 24 hours straight!!!


13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I start putting together a list around the end of October and if I have time I start shopping early.. This year i was too crazed to start shopping until December....


14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Nope


15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Shrimp Cocktail, Stuffed Artichoke's, and my mom's Apple Pie.


16. Lights on the tree? Yes, white lights... when I was little I always wanted colored lights on my tree.. but now as I'm older Brian and I love white lights...


17. Favorite Christmas Song? I too like Santa Baby and Jingle Bell Rock.. Heck.. I love Christmas Songs... They give me holiday cheer...


18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I usually do Christmas Eve and my Mom's house and then Christmas Day at my Aunt's and then go to Brian's Parent's House for Coffee and Dessert... Then Brian and I go back to our house to exchange gifts and watch movies!!!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dancer, Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid Donder and Blitzen... I got them online.. heehee....

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? This year I think we're doing an angel!


21. Open presents on Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Day with my family and Christmas Night with Brian and his family!!!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People that get so crazed and obsessed with shopping...The knock in to you and grab things and are just so pushy.. I feel it defeats the purpose of peace and happiness..

23. Favorite Ornament theme or color? Umm.... I love all of my mom's ornaments.. but she has this teeny, tiny stocking ornament that my great grandmother made for me when I was born.. my entire family has one and we hang them on the tree....

24. Favorite thing for Christmas dinner? Prime Rib and Shrimp!!!


25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I would like gift certificates to Coach so I can purchase the bag I want!! Also I want new Uggs and perfume!! I like surprise too.. But I'm not picky!!!!!

How fun was this? I'm the sma eway about wrapping paper. IT has to go along with the theme of our tree. This year I did a kind of retro, colorful tree. I was so excited 'cause yesterday while walking past the dollar store I found the perfect wrapping paper. I went in and bought every roll!

This is neat - I may have to borrow it too!!!

lily said...

Prime rib and shrimp!? Can I come to your house for Christmas dinner???

Tipp said...

I could have written this!

I seriously get depressed when I have to take down the tree. Most people are "NEW YEAR WOHOO" and I am all "I have to take down the tree" BOOO

Anna said...

This was fun! Thanks for sharing!

I hate taking down the tree too. I usually put it off until the last minute.

I love A Christmas Story too! That little kid with the glasses is too stinking cute!

EP said...

This is so fun! I'm a fan of wrapping paper, too, and picking out the right paper for the presents. (:

I have a fake tree this year, too, because my apartment is small, and my dog is craaaazy! Haha. Next year...

Matt said...

You know, real trees just arent worth it anymore!!

Are you dying without
a real tree? I would
