The Christmas List

The snow is piled up outside. My nose is stopped up and my fever is rising. Let's hope it's not the flu. I didn't ask Santa to bring me that for Christmas. 
I got tagged by several people to do this so here it goes:

1. Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes. I have about 2 more people to buy for and then I'm done!

2. Tell me about one of your special traditions.
There's a lot. On Christmas eve we open up 1 present and then watch a Christmas movie. On Christmas morning we get up really early and open all our gifts. We eat a light snack and then head to my grandmothers where the whole family converges on a very large meal. We exchange family presents with each other and usually watch some kind of holiday show or film. 

3. When do you put up your Tree? The Sunday after Thanksgiving

4. Are you a Black Friday shopper?
It depends. If I see something in the sale ad that I cannot pass up then I might go out for it. I try to steer clear of shoppers that day!

5. Do you travel at Christmas or stay home?
Luckily, my grandmothers house is only about 10 mins away. When I was a kid we would always leave the day after Christmas for Florida. To spend the rest of the year at Disneyland

6. What is your funniest Christmas memory?
Funniest...hmm I don't know. There's been a ton of great memories. 

7. What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
Tune into this weeks Theater Thursday to find out. 

8. Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
When I was younger my mom, my grandma and I would bake for days together. Now it's usually me and my mom. I love pinwheel cookies! They are amazing!

9. Fake or Real Tree?
We always get a real one for our "big" tree. Then we have a few fake ones spaced out around the house. 

10. What day does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
Usually I don't get too panicked but I'd say around Tuesday it'll hit. 

11. Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Normally no and I hope this year is no different.

12. What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas? 
Playing games together after our family meal.

13. What Christmas craft do you like the best?
I guess sending out Christmas cards. 

14. Christmas music? Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
I love Christmas music but I can only handle so much of it. I think I've almost met my quota for this year lol

15. When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
Hopefully by Tuesday.
