This week's questions:
1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I prefer wrapping paper, although gift bags are easier to deal with.
2.Real or artificial tree?
I love the smell of a real tree, but that is where it stops. We have an artificial tree. My husband's family used a real tree in one of their rooms when he was a boy, but I grew up with artificial trees.
3.When do you put your tree up?
Our Christmas season officially starts on December 18 as it is the birthday of one of our children. However, our tree stays up all year long.
4.When do you take your tree down?
We don't take it down. We used to take it down on the Day of Epiphany, but now we leave it up year-round.
5.Do you like eggnog?
I don't know. I've never had it.
6.Do you have a nativity scene?
I would love to have one, but we don't yet.
7.Favorite Christmas Movie?
There are two and, no, I can't decide between them. They are: It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street (the old version). They are classic and both have a wonderful message of faith and love.
8.Favorite Christmas cookie?
I love sugar cookies, unfrosted.
9.Where will you eat Christmas dinner?
My husband and I will be at home with our three remaining children.
10.Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?
I prefer to have an angel on top of the tree. I collect angels and try to get one each year in memory of our babies that are waiting for us in Heaven.
11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
The crowds and crazy drivers...and the commercialism are the worst things about this time of the year.
12.Do you like Fruitcake?
I'd rather have chocolate cake or my granny's pineapple-coconut cake.
13.What are you most excited about the holidays?
I'm not really excited, per se, but I do enjoy seeing the way folks have their houses decorated. It is really pretty driving through town at night seeing all of the lights.
14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Yes! It just really depends on our mood at the time. This isn't something that we've been really tied down on over the years.
15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
No. There's nothing left to wrap.
Merry Christmas, everybody! May your day be blessed with laughter, love, and lots of family all around to thank Him for the wonderful gift of His love, born as a baby in a lowly stable that silent night so long ago.
