Christmas Quizzy.....

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I {love, love} to wrap!!! I'm not a huge fan of gift bags....unless it's a hard to wrap item.
2. Real tree or Artificial? We bought our first real tree this year a love it.
3. When do you put up the tree? We put ours up on Dec 1st this year...usually within the first couple of days in Dec.
4. When do you take the tree down? Soon after the New Year.
5. Do you like eggnog? It's something I really haven't tried, although my family loves it!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? I do, it's one I've had for years. I'm hoping to get some pieces of the Wilow Tree Nativity....soon????
8. Hardest person to buy for? AND 9. Easiest person to buy for? I'm combining questions 8 & 9, since the answer to both is my mother-in-law. For years, she never wanted "anything"....she was VERY hard to please, fortunately, she has pretty much become my easiest because she only wants gift certificates for getting her hair done!! Easy peasy! :O)
