Why? Why not. I have lots of stuff I could/should post, but instead I’m going to do the Christmas meme my sister posted on her lovely site If I Had A Blog. Christmas cat is just so festive, I couldn’t resist.
1.) Have you started your Christmas shopping?
We’re done. How cool is that.
2.) Tell me about one of your special traditions.
Can I just copy everything my sister said? Or is that cheating. We are pretty inconsistent when it comes to doing Christmas traditions lately. But I would say doing the Angel Tree, setting up our beautiful wooden nativity set.
3.) When do you put up your Tree?
When we put it up…usually the weekend after Thanksgiving or soon after. =)
4.) Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Occasionally, but not usually.
5.) What is your funniest Christmas memory?
Funniest. Wow. I remember a cool Christmas Eve when we were flying and got bumped up to first class. That was nice, but not funny.
6.) What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
I LOVE – Holiday Inn, Muppet Christmas Carol and Love Actually.
7.) Do you do your own Christmas Baking? What’s your favorite treat?
Yes, and It depends. J loves cinnamon hard tack (which i said I would make but haven’t made yet and he hasn’t noticed. shhh) we also make chocolate truffles, some years we go crazy. My fav treat would probably be… honestly – candy canes. Don’t get me started on egg nog.
8.) Fake or Real Tree?
In Texas – fake. [sad] Things LIVE on the trees down here, plus, I don’t want to know the level of destruction our cat would cause to a real tree. but i miss real trees. someday…
9.) What day (as a Mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
Not a mom, so can’t speak from that perspective. This year, things got easier and less panicky as Christmas approached. Don’t know why. I think it had something to do with relief once I got all my client photo orders completed and knew they had their pictures. =) The rest is just pure holiday enjoyment with friends and family.
10.) Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Usually yes, but this year, I’m already done!!!
11.) What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
Playing board/card games with family. – yup. Eucher!!!
12.) What Christmas craft do you like the best?
I miss making paper snowflakes. I need to start making those again.
13.) Christmas music? Yes or No. And if yes, What is your favorite song?
Love all the Christmas carols. Silent night, What Child is This, Carol of the Bells. Non-traditional favorites are Barlow Girl’s “Light Has Come”, All I Want for Christmas and those Straight, No Chaser guys are pretty funny.
14.) When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
