Christmas Edition of Getting To Know Me

I found this meme over at Denise's blog . Welcome to the Christmas/Holiday edition of getting to know me.

1.) Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both 2.) Real tree or Artificial? Artificial... this year, the day after Thanksgiving Jim and I went to Home Depot and bought the display tree (on sale plus % off because it was the last tree) - a 32 inch little tree already beautifully decorated. - When you live in a small apartment a table top tree is all we can fit. 3.)

Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Turkey baster (husband waited last minute and has been paying for it ever since! lol) 12.) Favorite Christmas movie(s)? Its A Wonderful Life 13.) When do you start shopping for Christmas? Sometimes the Day After Thanksgiving - this year? - Yep, this year we did go out the day after Thanksgivng! Not early though... after the rush... we didn't have any problems... no lines either... even at the check out... 14.) Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? yes 15.) Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Ham and desserts! Chocolate!16.) Clear or colored Christmas lights? white or clear 17.) Favorite Christmas song(s)? Silent Night, Mary Did You Know, O' Holy Night 18.) Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay Home 19.) Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's?

Christmas Eve - Christmas is Jesus' Birthday...22.) Most annoying thing about this time of year? Too much commercialism , not enough understanding of the true meaning of Christmas. 23.) Favorite ornament theme or color? My favorite is when we put the homemade ornaments on the tree - but Heather has decorated the tree with some beautiful themes 24.) Favorite dinner for Christmas? Ham, lots of yummy desserts. 25.) What do you want for Christmas this year? Peace, Love, And Good Health for family and myself 26). Do you bake lots of goodies during the holidays?

The family goes to Candlelight Service at church, then home for homemade snacks, listen to Christmas Music and open up gifts 30.) Is Christmas your favorite holiday? Yes, absolutely!
