I stole this quiz from Lemon Annie, and I thought it was fun!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper with great big bows that are hand tied

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial although I would prefer real, but I have a kitty that likes to sleep in the real ones. Plus, I have an irrational fear of it catching on fire.

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the first week-end in December.

4. When do you take the tree down? SORRY, but the day after Christmas - I know, as an Episcopalian, I should wait until Epiphany, but I just can't.

5. Do you like eggnog? Absolutely. Lessie makes the BEST.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? An angel my Godmother gave me. It is still one of my most prized possessions.

7. Do you have a Nativity scene? Yes. The only one I can ever remember. I guess it will one day go to that beautiful "Gator Boy".

8. Hardest person to buy for? MG.

9. Easiest person to buy for? My beautiful niece A.

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? An UGLY baby doll....still remember.

11. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Definitely old fashioned mail. I love receiving Christmas cards with letters, notes, and pictures tucked in them.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? There are 2 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (THE BEST OF ALL TIME) and A Christmas Story (Little Ralphie and his Father are great).

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I shop year round.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Hasn't everyone? Come on - be honest?? I thought so.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cheese straws

16 Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear

17. Favorite Christmas song? I LOVE them all!

18 Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen, and Rudolph

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither - depends on the theme of the tree that year. Last year we did a Clemson Tiger themed tree and I wired a tiger in the top with orange and purple ribbon.....GO TIGERS!!! We are nothing if not devoted fans!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Xmas..I hate that. It just shows that everyone has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas.

23. Up early or sleeping in? Now, up LATE.

24. Who hands out the gifts? Santa conveniently makes piles of everyone's presents when he delivers his. I supervise and make sure everyone gets all of their presents.

25. Does Santa wrap your gifts? Yes. His elves stay busy wrapping those gifts and typing those bows!

26. Do you tell the Christmas story? I hate to admit no.

27. Do you leave cookies for Santa? Don't you?

Let's hear all about Christmas at YOUR house. Tag. You're it!
