Figgy Pudding Christmas Questions!
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? When someone has taken the time, money and effort to think of me, buy/make me a present and give it to me - it really doesn't matter how it's presented. Having said that, paper or bag, it's always extra special when the giver has added extras - tissue paper, bow, ribbons, straw etc.
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. Michael wanted a real tree when we first got together but I found that it gave me Hayfever so back to the original!
3. When do you put up the tree? We try to put it up at the beginning of December
4. When do you take the tree down? Usually in the first week of January
5. Do you like egg nog? No.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Bike, Barbies,?? Not sure
7. Do you have a nativity scene? No, it's something I'd like to have but all the one's I fall in love with are TOO EXPENSIVE!
