1. Real tree or artificial? -- This is our first year having artificial (b/c my husband just got out of the hospital).

2. When do you put up the tree? -- Weekend after Thanksgiving I start putting away Thanksgiving stuff and hauling out the Xmas stuff.

3. When do you take down the tree? -- Usually the 2nd weekend in January.

4. Wrapping paper or gift bags? -- I hate gift bags! My husband grew up only using gift bags in his family so he had to learn how to wrap presents since I banned gift bags from our home :)

5. When do you start Christmas shopping? -- All through the year if I see a bargain I'll get it and put away for Christmas.

6. Who is the hardest person to buy for? -- My husband, since he never really specifies ("Oh just get me some tools/games/movies," he'll say)

7. Easiest person to buy for? -- My dogs. Whatever toy, treat we get they love them.

8. Angel on top of the tree, or star? -- A red/white Santa hat

9. What is the worst Christmas gift you ever got? -- A pair of ugly argyle socks at my 3rd grade gift exchange.

10. What is the best gift you received as a child? -- After begging my mother for YEARS for a pet, my aunt brought me a puppy (with Mother's approval) for Christmas.

11. What is your favorite food to eat at Christmas time? -- B/c I don't really like chocolate, my Grandma would make me white chocolate covered pretzels. I make them every year now.

12. What do you want for Christmas this year? -- I want to just stay home and spend time with my husband and our doggy kids :)
