Christmas survey

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper because I love all the fun styles and it looks cute tied up with accessories.
2. Tree — real or artificial? Definitely real! We are firm believers in a real tree.
3. When do you put the tree up? Sometime in the beginning of Dec. Sadly I was not able to help pick it out this year for the first time in my life.
4. When do you take the tree down? It must be taken down before New Year's day because it is bad luck if not.
5. Do you like eggnog? Never tried it!
6. Do you have a Nativity scene? Yes, but it's at my parent's house. My boyfriend just got a really pretty one from his mom so I like to look at his.
7. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably the doll house that my grandpa made for me. It is pretty and pink!
8. Hardest person to buy for? Boy presents in general are hard to shop for.
9. Easiest person to buy for? My mom or sister
10. Worst Christmas gift? Not sure!
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail because Christmas cards are so pretty and fun to pick out. Mine will be sent out today!
12. Favorite Christmas movie? Elf, for sure! Also the Holiday, All I want for Christmas and White Christmas. Home Alone is always a good one too, especially the one set in NYC.
13. When do you start Christmas shopping? Sometime in December. I am very behind this year because I've been so busy.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Probably, or I've given it to my mom to recycle.
15. Favorite food to eat on Christmas? We have waffles Christmas morning, this year they will be gingerbread waffles! We also always have fondue. And my mom says we must eat chocolate from our stocking first thing :)
16. Lights on the tree? Yes, lots of pretty and sparkly lights
17. Favorite Christmas song? Baby it's cold outside, All I want for Christmas is you, Alvin and the Chipmunks and pretty carols/hymns
18. Travel during Christmas or stay home? Travel — this year, home to Atlanta and Birmingham to see my grandparents. Last year I went to NYC for Christmas, then went back home to Atlanta, to Birmingham and to Michigan to visit my boyfriend's family. Fun travels!
19. Can you name Santa's reindeer? Of course! I sing the song to remember them — Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen. But the most famous reindeer of all was . . . Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer . . . 
20. Angel or star on top of the tree? A pretty angel
21. Open presents on Christmas eve or morning? Christmas Eve my sister and I get our matching pajamas and an ornament to put on the tree
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Grouchy/grumpy people
23. Favorite ornament? I have so many! Ours all have memories behind them. I have violins because I played the violin when I was little, ballerinas for my dance, cheerleading ones, an acorn for Elon because it means oak, all kinds of ornaments from places I've traveled, Madeline ones because I loved her books/dolls when I was little. Probably my most favorite are my Rockettes ornaments. They're so pretty!

Tonight, tomorrow and Sunday I have my final performances for the Singing Christmas Trees. It will be sad to say goodbye, but it has been such a fun experience. My family is flying in tonight and they will see the show on Sunday. I can't wait to see them! We are headed to Disney tomorrow to a few of the parks to celebrate my mom's birthday. It's going to be a fun weekend!! Happy friday!

P.S. Mrs. B, can I have an invite to your blog? I didn't realize you had gone private, thanks!
