1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper. I love to wrap presents. Unfortunately, I suck at it.
2. Real tree or Artificial?
Artificial! I have two cats and a dog. Who wants a real tree? Jesus do you know what cats do to REAL trees???
3. When do you put up the tree?
Whenever I have time. This year I will not be putting up a tree, though, due to soon-to-be-ex-husband-assholery.
4. When do you take the tree down?
A few days after New Year’s…whenever I have time.
5. Do you like eggnog?
Erm…sortof….I think the idea of drinking raw eggs is gross, but I like the rest of the ingredients (rum).
6. Favorite gift received as a child?
One Christmas my mom gave me an easel, and it was awesome.
7. Hardest person to buy for?
Well, it WAS my Grandparents, before they died, because they had EVERYTHING. But for now, I would say it is my mom, because I never know what she wants, and because she tells me not to get her anything, which means she never gives me any idea of what she likes, just in case I decide to go out and get her something…
8. Easiest person to buy for?
Myself, of course. Oh you meant someone else…well it WAS my husband, before he became a completely different person, so now I would say it is my stepkids (they are still my stepkids for now), because I know that both of them like clothes, and one of them likes World of Warcraft. :)
9. Do you have a Nativity scene?
No, but I want to get one in honor of my Grandma, who put at least four up every year.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
I have never sent out Christmas cards, though I have always wanted to. Maybe I will do so next year, since I will have my own space to do so in.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
Last year a week before Christmas, my Grandma died.
This year, Christmas isn’t over yet. Who knows? My STBX may give me an even worse gift. Lord knows he is capable of it.
12. Favorite Christmas Movies?
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, A Christmas Story, It’s A Wonderful Life, any of the “A Christmas Carol” adaptations (A Muppet Christmas Carol, Scrooged, etc.), and of course, a recent favorite, ELF!!
13.When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Usually in the beginning of November, after they put away the Halloween decorations and start putting out the Christmas stuff, and I’m like “OMG IT’S CHRISTMAS ALREADY?? HUZZAH!”
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
No, but I have been given something that I did not want and instead gave it to someone else (but not as a Christmas present, just as a “Hey I got this for Christmas but I don’t like it–want it?” thing)
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Mom’s Christmas cookies, ham, pie, candy canes… Grandma used to make loads and loads of Christmas candy, but alas, her fudge is no more.
I think a better list would be least favorite things to eat at Christmas.

17. Favorite Christmas song?
ALL OF THEM.
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
I always travel at Christmas.
19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer’s?
Is there someone who can’t? I mean, really?

I have no tree this year. Fuck off.

At my parent’s house, Christmas Eve. At my relatives’ house, Christmas Day.

Traffic. I hate driving around the stupid people.
