Whoops--wrong holiday!  Here's a Christmas meme I stole from UB who stole it from pfeifferpack.  Also, I'm super glad that school's out!!  Fan fic, here I come!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I LOVE wrapping presents.  It's something about that shiny, colorful paper...

2. Real tree or artificial?
We've been using real trees since I was eleven--white pines.  I love the smell.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Oh, like the week before.  Maybe ten days before...then we leave it up for quite a bit.

4. When do you take the tree down?
When the needles fall off and make an awful mess :S

5. Do you like Eggnog?
Hellz yeah!!  Even though I'm lactose intolerant...

6. Favourite gift received as a child?
A Nintendo 64.  Or, as an adult, a Super Nintendo.  It's a toss up.  I <3 antiquidated video games :D

7. Do you have a nativity scene?

8. Hardest person to buy for?
My mom--I swear, everything I buy...she *never* opens.  Birthday, Christmas...I just can't win with that woman.  Unless, I can somehow drug then stuff Charles Barkley in a box.  Or afford tickets to Vegas.

9. Easiest person to buy for?
Me ;)

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
Once, my grandma got me the worst pair of ugly brown leather shoes I've ever seen in my life...I have no idea where she got them from, or why she would think I would like them.  I was like, ten, and very confused.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards?

12. Favourite Christmas Movie?
It's a Wonderful Life, and A Christmas Story.  Both classics, and I could watch them both on repeat.  Especially the first one.  "Oh, Mary..."

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
I always tell myself the day after Thanksgiving, but that's insane.  A couple of weeks into Decemeber, usually.  This time, I'm actually done, but only because I shortened my list considerably. 

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
Once--a pair of slippers I couldn't fit, I gave to my grandma.  They were cute too :(

15. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas?
I'm a cornish hen gal, and I absolutely love my mom's stuffing--it is absolutely the best cornbread stuffing on the planet, I promise you.

16. Clear lights or coloured on the tree?
White lights, with red, blue, green, and silver ornaments.  Gold ribbons streaming down, and maybe a few red velvet bows here and there.

17. Favourite Christmas song?
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Luther Vandross, and maybe "Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer" by the temptations.

18. Travel for Christmas or stay at home?
Stay home--I'm usually up all night setting up gifts anyway.  Unless of course, someone asked me to spend Christmas in Italy--I could make an exception then :P

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen.  Rudolph wasn't apart of the original poem (or was it a song?  Whatever--the original one didn't have Rudolph, I don't think)

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
We had an angel once, but we usually use to very large red velvet bows.  If we ever had a star...no, I don't think we ever had one.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Christmas morning in my house, though I know a lot of people who do Christmas eve.  But at the same time...technically, it's Christmas morning at 12:01 a.m.  But as a kid, my mom would make me go to sleep anyway...I would just wake up way early--like six or something.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
People who act like penises in the shopping lines.  Once, my mom had me hold a place for her in line, and when she came over with the cart, the lady behind us started bitching about it.  Man, I wanted to punch the anal bitch in the face...  I mean, she saw me standing in a long line with nothing.  What the hell did she think I was doing?  Waiting to buy gum?

23. What I love most about Christmas?
Seeing the excitement on people's faces when I get the gift right, getting gifts, and I would say snow, but I don't see that really happening...And it saddens me deeply.

24. What I love least about Christmas?
Well, it's not the holiday's fault, but I do end up feeling pretty crappy when I realize that I made myself nearly broke.
