                      1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
                      Wrapping all the way - I'm all about the perfectly wrapped gift with ribbons and all.

                      2. Real tree or Artificial?
                      This will be our first official Xmas together in our house, so despite me not liking the idea of cutting down a poor tree (I always had artificial growing up), the fiance has insisted that it's not Xmas without a REAL tree ... so we're going to go by his tradition on that one.

                      3. When do you put up the tree?
                      Well, seeing as it's going to be real, probably about 2 weeks before Christmas.

                      4. When do you take the tree down?
                      Always January 01st.

                      5 . Do you like eggnog?
                      I love it in a bad, bad way.


                      6. Favorite gift received as a child?
                      Hmm, that's a hard one ... I was obsessed with unicorns when I was a little girl and I was given a stuffed one for Christmas and that thing went EVERYWHERE with me.

                      7. Hardest person to buy for?
                      The future husband ... he's IMPOSSIBLE.

                      8. Easiest person to buy for?
                      My Mum - I always go overboard but I just love buying stuff for her. She's already done so much for me, how can I not?

                      9. Do you have a nativity scene?
                      Nope, the cats would surely destroy it ... or eat baby Jesus and I just don't think that would be right...

                      10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
                      Well, for all my work contacts, PR reps etc it's email all the way. But, for family and friends snailmail baby!

                      11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
                      I remember when I was really young I went to see Santa at the mall and I really wanted a stuffed bear, like REALLY badly wanted a bear ... and so on Xmas morning I open my stocking to discover a miniature, like smaller than my thumb, green plastic bear ... and my parents were like: Look! Santa granted your wish. LOL I don't know WHAT they were thinking ... definitely made me think twice about asking Santa for stuff.

                      12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
                      Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (the clay one) hands down!


                      13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
                      Um, a few weeks before Xmas ...

                      14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
                      No I don't think I have ...

                      15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
                      Candy Canes!!!! I'm obsessed!!!


                      16. Lights on the tree?
                      Yup, clear.

                      17. Favorite Christmas song?
                      I hate to admit it, but it's that stupid Mariah Carey song "All I Want For Christmas Is You" ... it just makes me happy and I always sing and dance along to it.

                      18. Travel at Christmas or stay at home?
                      The past few years we've spent Xmas in Cuba and it's been a bit strange ... we're staying home this year and personally I prefer that! I love just staying in my PJs all day and opening gifties.

                      19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's?
                      Maybe after a bit of eggnog ...

                      20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
                      Star

                      21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
                      We open our stockings on Christmas Eve because my father was such a kid about it that he could wait for the morning so that's a tradition now... hehehe then we open the rests of the gifts on Christmas morning.

                      22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
                      People who dislike Christmas for all the wrong reasons. It doesn't have to be a materialistic holiday if you don't want it to be. Look at it for all it's good qualities ... and he really does have a lot!

                      23. What theme or color are you using?
                      Our tree and decorations match the rest of the decor in our house and we're going with silver/white/teal/green/blue

                      24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
                      My Mum's butterball turkey with yams, parsnips, roasted potatoes and all the fixings ... mmmm


                      25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
                      Materialistically I would love a new laptop! Otherwise I just want all around me to be healthy and happy (I've lost too many people to cancer this year)

                      26. Who is most likely to respond to this?
                      All the BDW elves!!
