Christmas traditions meme

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper

2. Real tree or Artificial?
Artificial tree....it's so sad to see a real tree dying in your living room, although I miss the smell of a real tree though. And matching branches by color code in a holder doesn't really get you in the Christmas mood. But once it's done, I like it.

3. When do you put up the tree decorations?
When Sinterklaas is back to Spain (so after Dec 6th)

4. When do you take the tree down?
When the 3 kings are back home (Epiphany on Jan 6th)

5. Do you like eggnog?
They don't sell it in Belgium, but I like it because it's a Canadian memory (even though I never tasted it I think)

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
Check it out here

8. Easiest person to buy for?
People who have moved into their first owned house :-)....lots of potential presents

9. Do You have a nativity scene?
Nope...I'd like to have one one day, but I'm not searching for one actively

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Both depending on how personal the contact is and whether I have the postal addresses.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
can't have been that bad as I don't remember anything right now.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
"Little match girl" ....a movie we had on video starring the little girl from the Cosby Show. Brought me to tears each time I watched it as a child but I loved it.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Dec 23 or something :p...so imagine the look on my face during a recent trip to Ireland in NOVEMBER when a waitress asked me whether I had finished my Christmas shopping yet. I should have answered her that I had even finished my Easter shopping for 2010 already!

Lame songs in the stores
