20 Questions–Christmas Style

Stealing from Danifred, who stole from Rebecca, because it’s almost 11 on Sunday night and I am spent!


1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper. I love to make gifts look really pretty, even if they are going to get destroyed in .25 seconds or less.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial.  I really can’t be bothered with the real thing because I would certainly forget to water it and it would die.

3. When do you put up the tree? It almost always goes up the weekend after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? My grandma always said it was bad luck to take it down before the new year. But I can’t handle the clutter, so I almost always have it down by the 30th

5. Do you like eggnog? I don’t love it, but a small glass now and then is ok.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I can’t remember a lot of gifts, but I remember getting a letterman jacket from my mom – she sent us on a scavenger hunt to find them in the house!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? We have a fisher price one, does that count?

8. Hardest person to buy for? My parents, what do you buy for the people who have and/or buy everything they want? Pictures of their family, that’s what!

9. Easiest person to buy for? Gianna. For sure. My sisters are pretty easy too, though. (easy to buy for….) 

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail. I'm religious about my card sending.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A Glade air freshener. Yes really.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Elf because it makes me laugh.  But It’s a Wonderful Life is classic.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? As soon as I can figure out what to buy.

14. Ever recycled a Christmas present? Heck. Yes..

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Acini Pepi. It’s a dish my mom will only make for me at the holidays because it is a giant pain in the ass. But I love it.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? White lights.

17. Favorite Christmas song? I really am not a christmas music fan.  This year my favorite is Santa Clause is Coming to Town because Gianna will sing it to me and it is the cutest thing in the whole wide world.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? We stay home, but one of the things on my bucket list is to spend Christmas at Disney with my whole family.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? We have a crocked angel.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Everything on Christmas morning except a pair of jammies on christmas eve.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The busy.  It’s a time when all anyone wants to do is enjoy themselves, yet we are all running around like chickens with our heads cut off anyway.

23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color?  Our decorations are bright colors (pink, lime green, red, teal, purple etc) and I love how modern and fun it is.  Next year I want to do 2 trees, one with all the sentimental/old school/favorite ornaments. And then our regular one to appease the organized, everything has to match side of me.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? I honestly have no idea.  I feel bad for anyone who is attempting to buy me anything this year, because unless you are paying off one of the 20374 student loans I have, I can’t imagine what else I would want to receive.  But I love a good surprise, so I’m looking forward to seeing who met the challenge!

I have never seen Elf, but I think it's time this year.

I'm intrigued by the PITA dish your mother makes. I must look it up.

I love the idea of two mother always did a Disney tree in the family room and the traditional in the living room. It made her happy!

I want to know more about the dish your mom makes! If it's that hard to make, it MUST be good.

Love that you have a Fisher Price nativity scene!
