Christmas Meme

Was visiting with Tug and thought I would play along with the Meme that she has posted. Yup, I know we have seen this all over the blogosphere, but it is still fun!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper! And the Santa gifts have special Santa paper from the North Pole!

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial, less mess and waste of living trees.

3. . When do you put up the tree? As close to December 1 as possible.

4. When do you take the tree down? New Years Eve day.

5. Do you like eggnog? YUM!! Especially the adult version!!

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I wish sooner that I normally do. I may have one or two gifts throughout the year, but the majority after the tree is decorated.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No, I usually hang on to the Christmas gifts until the person that gave it to me dies or moves, then I donate it to a thrift store or non profit.

22. Most annoying thing(s) about this time of year? Grumpy people and those other asswipes who don't appreciate what they have!

Play along if you like, just let me know so I can stop by and visit!

I have to say that gift bags are lazy and not fun for the recipient. Presents need wrapping paper, even if it's an old newspaper.

Egg nog, seriously? ewwwwww. ;-) And I forget that you didn't always live in FL...the snow skis & lift pass threw me for a sec - hee.

Thanks for playing along!
