a christmas meme

I've been tagged with my first meme by Bucky from The West Virginia Blogger.

The object is simple. Answer the following questions about Christmas as it pertains to you and then pass it on to seven friends.

1. Wrapping or gift bags?
I don't suck at wrapping gifts but I find it too troublesome, I can't get the corners just right. So, I guess I'll go with gift bags.

2. Real or artificial tree?
I would prefer a real one, but they don't sell real ones where I live. I don't even think I can get one in this country.

3. When do you put up the tree?
I don't. I prefer real ones, refer to 2. Plastic ones just don't do it for me.

4. When do you take the tree down?
When I had a tree, I'll take it down when it starts shedding or turns brown.

5. Do you like egg nog?
Not particularly. I don't hate it, but I can't say that I love it either.

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
A picture book on everything I need to know about Star Wars. It was the 80's. We didn't have internet then.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?
If my messy room counts. If we go by the normal acceptable standard for a nativity scene, then no.

8. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
A tie. That was when I don't even wear shirts to work or anywhere, as a matter of fact.

9. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Preferably by mail. But practically, by email. I don't know everyone's mailing address.

10. Favorite Christmas Movie?
Oddly, "It's A Wonderful Life".

11. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
As soon as I receive my first Christmas gift.

12. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Turkey. I sleep very well after turkey.

13. Clear lights or colored on the tree?
Depends on the tree. But I guess I'm old school, I will go with clear lights.

14. Favorite Christmas song(s)?
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

15. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
Stay at home. I need the sleep.

16. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Rudolph, Dasher, Vixen .. and, and.. help me Google ... Cupid, Blitzen. Cupid and Blitzen always gets me. So that's a big NO.

17. Angel on the tree top or a star?
Star. Just because.

18. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Christmas day...not morning. I usually do it at night, during Christmas dinner.

19. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
People who are a bitch to you the whole year suddenly grows a heart. Like the fucking Grinch. It just blows my mind. I find that so "fake", and I can't really enjoy it. And celebrity Christmas albums.

20. Do you decorate your tree in any specific theme or color?

21. What do you leave for Santa?
Santa doesn't exist, so nothing.

22. Least favorite holiday song?
"Jingle Bells", just sick of it.

23. Favorite ornament?
Balls. Big shiny balls.

24. Family tradition?
Dinner at aunts.

25. Ever been to Midnight Mass or late-night Christmas Eve services?
No. I'm already asleep by then. Plus, I don't want Santa to find me being a naughty little boy when he creeps into my house to eat my stale 6th billionth cookie.

Alright. For the seven people, I guess I will tag:

Mercury from Merdurian.com
Haney from Random Views From The Subconscious Mind
blurryhunniee from blurryhunniee
Texas JAM from The Views Of The All Seeing Eye
KKZOne from KKZOnex
mikemmery from Failure Today, Success Tomorrow
Abi from Delirium
Danny from The Danesh Project
Quinee from Dream Catcher
Vivien from Vivien's Whatever

Shit. I overshot, I have 10. Well, doesn't matter. Merry X'mas and Happy new year. Also I promised to swipe the X'mas picture from West Virginia Blogger. I did it.

Send me some X'mas greetings, people!
