Thursday Thirteen#79 – “Christmas Questions!”

tt_xmas2.jpg

This is a part of a meme that I thought I would make part of my TT! Two birds, one post! mrgreen

1. Real tree or artificial?
Artificial, all that sneezing and watering eyes keep us from having a real one, though I do love the smell.

2. When do you put up the tree?
Usually about two to three weeks before Christmas.

3. When do you take the tree down?
New Years weekend, by then I am so ready to get my house back in order!

4. Favorite gift received as a child?
Wow, I had some great gifts as a child so that’s hard. One that comes to mind was when I got the drum set I really wanted!!

5. Do you have a nativity scene?
I have several, even a small one from Jerusalem made from olive wood that I love.

6. Hardest person to buy for?
My husband, he has everything!

7. Easiest person to buy for?
My daughter, she and I have very similar taste!

8. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? ???
Can’t say this is the worst, but it wasn’t something I would have bought for myself! Someone bought me a “custom” sweat suit with appliquéd flowers on the front of the shirt and pants leg. Not really my style. lol

9. Favorite Christmas Movie?
Most favorite is “It’s A Wonderful Life,” but I love Christmas movies, so you have to add, “Elf,” “The Santa Clause 1 & 2,” “Miracle on 34th Street” the original one…just to name a few!

10. Favorite Christmas song?
Another hard one that I can’t just narrow down! “O Holy Night” would be #1, “Do You Hear What I Hear,” “Little Drummer Boy,” shoot, the list could go on and on….

11. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Matter of fact I tried to do that last night, and I failed!! worried

12. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Christmas morning, thank heaven not as early as it use to be!!

13. What I love most about Christmas?
The meaning of Christmas.

    That’s a fun meme. I used to be quite the Christmas sprite myself, though I’ve reached the age and stage where I don’t bother much about the run-up to it. I just enjoy spending time with the family etc. I wish I could feel all the excitement and Christmas spirit etc—-I really feel a sort of vacuum in my life without it.

    I agree about artificial trees, though my reason is that my cats always ate mine!

  2. SJ Reidhead says:

    Artificial.

    The Pink Flamingo

    Oh, I’m going to do this meme but I’ll post it on my blog. smile

    It’s always interesting to read how other people celebrate. No two households are exactly alike, I suspect.

    Aren’t you smart! Two, two, two memes in one!
    I loved your answers. I might just have to do this one too.
    Hope you are cozy and warm and behaving…….well, two out of three wouldn’t be bad!!
    Love ya!

  6. Oh, the custom sweat suit! That had me rolling on the floor. I can visualize it, because I’ve seen the same one! You didn’t put The Christmas Story as a favorite movie! We have to watch it every year (sometimes more than once!). Happy TT, and thank you again for putting together that afghan! You are awesome, lady.

  7. Frances says:

    Love this template.
    I love the Little Drummer Boy too.
    My husband is much harder to buy for than my daughter.
    She and I wear the same size, and dress very similarly.
    Thanks for taking the time to visit. cool

    Killin’ 2 birds with 1 stone = INGENUOUS!

  9. Gattina says:

    We used to put up the huge nativity scene Mr. Gattino got when he was 3 years old. All handmade and when you put up everything it would take the size of a double bed ! When he was a child there were no Christmas trees in Italy they all had nativity scenes. He learned it with me and since then we have a tree and the nativity scene;
