1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?

Definately wrapping paper...I don't think I would get much out of opening a gift bag..and it is too easy to peak...

2. Real tree or artificial?

I have always had real trees up until the last two years, but they are harder to find and put up...and messier...and I left one up till June one year...(it was a really long time ago..) so I thought maybe artificial trees were safer...
Did I ever get teased about that....

3. When do you put up the tree?

December is one of our family day traditions...

mmmwhenever I can find the time....

5. Do you like eggnog?

6. Favorite gift received as a child?

a blue dinasaur...but I don't actually know if I got it as a Christmas gift. The other one was some water squeezed it, and this dumbell thing went and picked up stuff off the bottom..I don't even know what you would call it, but I played with that thing forever...and I don't know what ever happened to it...
