Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy (not forward) this and change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you... 'Tis the Season to be NICE!
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper for the kids. Only a handful of gift bags for the adults.

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving.
4. When do you take the tree down? A few days after Christmas. By that point I am ready to get my house back in "normal" order.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I didn't really have one that I can remember. I usually liked everything.
7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes. However, I did not put it up this year. Loser.
