A couple of you have completed this and therefore, I shall take the initiative…though I haven’t been tagged.  But, thanks to Jessica, for the prompting.  So, here we go!

  • When do you put your Christmas tree up? Take it down?

Usually, the first day that I have my kids in December, all decorations.  It’s our tradition.  We usually take stuff down on New Year’s Day (or the day after).

  • What is your tree topper?

A star, always.  And, it was usually tradition that Dad put it on the top, first.  But, I have let each one of my kids do that, the past few years.

  • Is your tree real or synthetic?

Synthetic.  I upgraded last year.  Costco…amazing tree.  Lights built in…puts togther in about 10 minutes, ready for decorating.  We used to all take turns putting a decoration on each, but, over the past few years, the kids decorate tree while I work on the windows. They do an amazing job.  Christmas music is playing non-stop.

  • Favorite Christmas Scent?

Pine…and turkey.  Oh my gosh, the smell of a turkey cooking!  And yes, that IS a Christmas smell, dang it!

  • Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeer?

Yes, but after Rudolph, do any others matter? 🙂

  • When did you stop believing in Christmas?

I think I stopped believing in Santa when I was about five.  But, I still believe in the true meaning and spirit of Christmas, as do my children.

  • White lights or colored lights?

Both.  The tree let’s us choose.  Last year we had it set to multi-coloured.  This year, we have it set to white, to be more “classy”, as the kids define it.

  • Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Morning?

Always Christmas morning.  And, I still don’t put a single present under the tree until all the kids are in bed.  And, I still video them coming down the stairs in the morning, to get their reactions.

  • Have you ever had a white Christmas?

I live in Canada…are you kidding?

  • Have you ever had a brown Christmas? (Question added)

I live in Canada…are you kidding?

  • Are your wrapping skills Pinterest worthy or “Let’s use a giftbag” worthy”?

I must say that I am a wrapping Master.  Though, I do use gift bags once in a while.  And, I like really shiny wrapping paper!  It’s purdy.

  • All time favorite Christmas Song?

Oh, this is tough one. I have three.  “It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas” – Michael Buble.  “I Want Hippopotamus for Christmas” – Gayle Peevey  “Penguin, James Penguin” – Brad Paisley (my kids love this song).

  • Have you ever made a snowman?

Absolutely, but not lately.  Sometimes, we don’t have the benefit of wet snow.  But, I’ll have to make one soon.

So, there you go.  So, what are some of your traditions?  And, to pay it forward, I’d like to tag:

  1. Reading your answers actually put me even more into the Christmas spirit (though I spent my past weekend shopping for gifts and baking cookies!), so thank you! 🙂
