Christmemes

I've been tagged with a Christmas Meme. It's just what I need to get back in the game here.

So here goes:
1. Wrapping or gift bags? When getting gifts I couldn't care less as long as the gift shows thought. Giving I prefer a gift bag (Is a brown paper bag a gift bag?)

2. Real or artificial tree? My family has long been a believer in the "real tree of die" theory. Several years ago, my Father-In-Law gave us a beautiful artificial tree. it looks real and the branches hold our heavy ornaments much better. Never looked back.

3. When do you put up the tree? A week or two before depending on how busy things are. I put it up last weekend this year. It just needs to be decorated it now.

4. When do you take the tree down? Little Christmas.

5. Do you like egg nog? Vile Stuff. Even the fact that it has alcohol in it can't sway me.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Best toys ever
Unfortunately they are a fortune to buy now or I would be getting them again for this Christmas.

7. Do you have a Nativity scene? Two. One under the tree and one on the piano. I also have one up at work just to iritate people.

8. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? When I first met my wife and we were living together, My Father-In-Law bought a gold plastic Last Supper with a clock in it. It had to go back.

9. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Mail

10. Favorite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Carol.

11. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I usually buy something in August and am proud of myself for starting early until I realize that a week before Christmas, It's still the only thing I bought.

12. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Wine. . .No wait! I make a mean butter cookie.

13. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Colored.

14. Favorite Christmas song? Transiberian's Carol of the Bells and Wizards in Winter.

Hmmm...I think it was a hint.

You were living in SIN, and he wanted to remind you of GOD!

He heard that I was Catholic and thought that I would like it. I was going to put it right over my Buddha with the clock in his belly.

Seriously, Transiberian Orchestra?!?! Believe me, I've heard TONS of bad Christmas music, but even I can't go that far.

You send out cards? Hmmmm. Mine must be lost!

I love Carol of the Bells but I don't think I've heard the second one!
