Taking over the holiday decorating myself and with help from my younger siblings.
When I found all the boxes for all our Santa presents from like a decade's worth of presents down in the basement. Mom and Dad, were you waiting for recycling to be invented? What was up with that? I don't remember how old I was.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
10. How do you decorate a tree?
Prelit tree- so no messing with lights. Put on all the ornaments we own (I have a collection of smore ornaments that is growing slowly each year, red and gold glass ornaments- 60 cents after Christmas!, and a mismash of things people gave us, some we made like kiddos hand prints, and some I got from Avon- love the santa clothesline garland). Star on top.

Being with my family and remembering the Savior.
Watching the black and white version of A Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve17. What tops your tree?
A gold glittery star
Giving. I like receiving too, but giving more.
19. Favorite Christmas song?
20. Candy Canes-Yuck or Yum?
21. Favorite Christmas show?
I'm not super into Christmas movies, but my mom and Kathy always liked to watch them. I haven't seen any lately (besides Dora's Christmas Carol) and it seems like I should so it can officially feel like Christmas. I do like the one I mentioned previously#16. I also like White Christmas, Scrooged, the Charlie Brown Christmas movie, and It's A Wonderful Life. I should find out when that one's going to be on!
22. Saddest Christmas song?
I'm not super into Christmas songs either. My sister really liked Christmas songs when we were younger- do you still? Probably more spiritual songs would bring tears to my eyes. Having to listen to sappy Christmas songs on the radio makes me sad because they are so bad. Celine Dion Christmas songs make me mad (one Christmastime her Christmas CD was on constant play at the office I was working on, blech!)
