1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. Then I can take it down when I want to take it down.

3. When do you put up the tree? WHEN I did put up a tree, it was whenever I found the time to do it - it took a week to put it up. I've stopped doing it because I don't have the stanima even for the small ones anymore. (I have [I think] almost 10 trees in different sizes to choose from, with decorations for each but I just don't have the excitment and drive to do it anymore.)

4. When do you take the tree down? After everyone's January birthdays - after the 17th.

5. Do you like eggnog? Not really. The Braums stuff is pretty good, though.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? The Johnny West Ranch, along with Jane West and her horse, Flame. I already had Johnny West, Chief Cherokee, Thunderbolt and Thundercolt.

7. Hardest person to buy for? I've pretty much stopped purchasing presents - everyone I know has what they want already.

8. Easiest person to buy for? My mother - she loves anything I give her. A rock? She'd put in a prominent place.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? At least three. Papa gave my first one to me to keep me from playing with Nana's. I have that one, too, now.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Both.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Too many to even think about. I hate presents that have no real thought behind them except for that 'they're a gift' attitude. Why would I want a snowman candle when you've never seen any snowmen on my desk during the holidays? You gave me boxed soap - do I stink? A snowman mug? Huh?

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Christmas Carol, in all its incarnations, but especially any black and white versions.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Year-round.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? More so now than I used to.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Nothing comes to mind.

16. Lights on the tree? Is 1000 lights on a 7ft tree considered enough lights? When I did the 7ft, I did 500 non-blinking then went through the same branches again with 500 blinking.

17. Favorite Christmas song? I love most of the them. Used to sing Victorian carols in a hoop and corset...

18.Travel at Christmas or stay home? HOME.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? You betcha!

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither. I use a feathered peacock with its tail down.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Eve with the folks at their place, morning at home. Although last year we did most gifts on Eve because I wanted rat to open his vintage Barbie prom game in front of my folks.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Being expected to give gifts.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? hodge-podge

24. Favorite for Christmas Dinner? No favorite. We go out with my folks to Black-Eyed Pea on Xmas Eve every year. rat and I sleep in the next morning and eat whatever we have floating around in the kitchen. This year, I may make mac and cheese. Don't know yet. We may eat corny dogs or chili dogs. It's not important to us.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? A windshield wiper blade for my back window. Yes, that's what I asked for from rat.
