Merry Christmas Meme!

Yeah, since it's Christmas and I'm outta commission in the North Georgia mountains, and probably none of you are reading this anyway (Wait, you're reading this? Get outta here! Go back to the 'nog! You've got some gifts to tear open! GO!), so here's a Christmas meme that's been floating around for the past month. Enjoy!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both

2. Real tree or Artificial? Both. We typically have a real tree with the usual suspects of ornaments and an artificial tree with nothing but sci-fi ornaments from Hallmark. GEEKS!

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually within one week after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? Anytime between New Year’s Day and January 6th, which is Epiphany.

5. Do you like eggnog? That depends. If it’s really, really strong with lots of alcohol, then no. Otherwise, I’m OK with it.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Wow. I can’t really remember. I liked all my gifts as a kid. I was easy to please.

7. Hardest person to buy for? Ty-man and the FIL, Chuck.

8. Easiest person to buy for? The kids.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I snail-mail those suckers.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? This God-awful purple sweatshirt with purple fabric lilacs glued to the front and trimmed with silver glitter. My aunt sucked at picking out decent gifts for me. And her handmade gifts? Even worse.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? White Christmas

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? December 26th. No lie. I shop all year long.

14 . Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Chocolate-covered cherries

16. Lights on the tree? White, non-blinking.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Mele Kalikimaka

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Sort of home. We're still in Georgia at the in-laws house.

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

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning. One gift can be opened on Christmas Eve and that’s it.

21. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People are just too fracking rude.

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? Red.

23. What do you want for Christmas this year? For people to quit over-analyzing “Do we give gifts or not? Do we just donate to charities in each other’s names? Christmas Eve or Christmas morning gift-exchanges?” What the frack ever. Just do what feels right and leave me out of it!
