Christmas meme

I got sent this via email, so anyone who wants can consider themselves taggee's! leave a comment though so I can see your answers. Yeah, I'm a sticky beak LOL

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper. Lots and Lots. Think I was a cat in a former life, love wrapping paper and hate water.

2. Real tree or artificial?
Fake. We had real one's when I was a kid and then the mad bomber bombed the place we bought them from and it's made bad associations with real trees. Plus they're messy. I have kids to make mess if I want mess.

3. When do you put up the tree?
December 1st, without fail. One year before I had kids to do it, I speed decorated at 11.57pm. Best job of decorating the tree I ever did LOL

4. When do you take the tree down?
January 1st. I can also speed disassemble too. Although it does mean that before I got the new fibre optic tree this year that the lights were always so tangled that I had to buy a new set every year.

5. Do you like eggnog?
No. Raw eggs. Enuff said.

6. Favourite gift received as a child?
My crystal radio with earphones! I dragged that thing everywhere for years until it expired from overuse.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?
No, but I have been eyeing off a Santa train track that goes around the bottom of the tree. And a 2 foot high Santa that says Ho,Ho,Ho and flashes his lights at you.

8. Hardest person to buy for?
Parentals. GAH! One mob is easier  than t'other mob though.

9. Easiest person to buy for?
The granddaughter. heh. She's 7 months, anything she can safely gum to death is a winner!

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
Lime green washing basket.

11. Mail or Email Christmas cards?
Errrr, well, I have to say I normally mail Christmas cards as I am a very competitive person and a friend and I try to beat each other every year. BUT, this year I was a bit cranky and Bah Humbug due to the sudden change of plans until I kicked myself in the arse and so it will be a mix this year. El won this year I'm afraid, so next year I'm sending them out at Easter to be sure I win.

12. Favourite Christmas movie?
The Santa Clause 1, 2 and 3. There was a cartoon I loved to watch every year but I forget what it was called and it hasn't been on that I know of.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Tomorrow. I think.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
heh. yep, but so far I have resisted the temptation to recycle the lime green washing basket. And, so it sits. And mocks me.

15. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas?
Leg of ham. Ham thinks it's a bit kinky though *g*

16. Clear lights or coloured on the tree?
Both and with lots of flashy stuff happening.

17. Favourite Christmas song?
Good King Wenceslas.

18. Travel for Christmas or stay home?
While we have been in Melbourne we only travel on Christmas Day across Melbourne. It's not a good thing. In previous years depending on where we have been in Oz it can take from 1 hour to 3 or 4 days.

19. Can you name all of Santa�s Reindeer?
Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Cupid, Dixon, Rudolph, Comet, Dasher and my personal fave, Prancer!

20. Angel on tree top or star?
Depends on who has the starring [snerk!] role of putting the ornament on top of the tree. Usually the Star wins as the kids think it's cruel and unusual punishment for an Angel, although sometimes poor Santa gets the honours *g*

21. Open all the presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Due to travel as previously mentioned and me being stressed on Christmas Morning because I have to go over the Westgate Bridge in particular, we are toying with the idea of Christmas Eve being our Christmas Day now the kids are older. They all still assure me they believe in Santa though. Right. LOL

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
All the PC nuts. So, Merry Christmas everyone and I hope Santa brings everyone some happiness. Lime green washing baskets.

23. What I love most about Christmas�
Myer windows.Wrapping paper.Happy excited kids.Summer. No cyclones.

Going on some of the recent search terms people have entered and found my site by, all I can say is....

Your computer needs to have it's cache washed out with soap.

I have some pics to put up but the usb cable is in hiding.  And I'm tired. And now gobsmacked after looking at my server stats. So later. Promise!
