1. What present did you always want for Christmas and never got?
Make up. I got it once, but my mom took it away from me and used it herself. It was a tube of lipstick. I was soooooo irritated.
2. Have you ever had a terrible present that you hated and what was it?
Twice. The first was from my SIL, she got me a Disney Princess Pillow that had a pocket with a Disney Princess Journal. I was 18 years old, and she's only 4 years older than me. She seriously thought I would appreciate a 10 year old's gift. The second time was from my MIL. She meant well, but went way over the top. I always wear white gold with rhinestone jewelery. Well she saw a bunch of COSTUME JEWELERY on sale. BIG HUGE DRESS UP stuff for a Quincenera or younger. I was 19.
3. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Christmas Ornaments. My gift last year was an after Christmas sale of ornaments and I absolutely loved it. I requested Hubs do that for me every year so I can justify buying holiday decor.
4. Do you think you'll get it?
Yes, it's no secret, and I demand it. Lol He even has the day after Christmas off so we can go shopping for it.
5. On average, how much do you spend on Christmas presents?
We used to spend $200 or more on everyone, but I bought throughout the year, so it never put us in a pinch, everyone got $20-$40 gifts. This year however, with our daughter old enough to get presents (last year she just got a stocking and an ornament) we cut back on spending so we could spoil her. Adults get cookies and framed pictures, children got stuff from my online shop, so it came to about $7 per kid, with the exception of my favorite niece, who we spent $40 on. I only see my other nieces and nephew once a year at Christmas, so I don't spoil them, they don't even call me Auntie.
6. How will you spend Christmas Day?
Fearful of interruption. Sorry, Christmas and Thanksgiving have become tedious in our family ever since a Home Wrecker entered the picture of my Uncle. We'll be at FIL's house, but if the wench shows up we're leaving.
7. Do you have pets; if yes, do you buy them presents?
Yes, we typically buy our 3 cats stuff to fill their stockings.
8. What will you have for Christmas dinner?
Oh geeze. We have 3 Christmas parties. If anyone anywhere makes it for Christmas dinner, I'll be having it at some point, lol.
9. Do you still believe in Santa?
No, and I don't think I ever have? If I did it was before I can remember, and I can remember being 4 years old.
10. Do you get a stocking?
I usually do...but I just found out Hubs isn't doing a stocking for me this year. Shoot. :(
11. Have you ever eaten so much chocolate during the holidays that you've groaned, "Please, no more chocolate?"
After 2-3 pieces I don't want anymore.
12. What's your favourite Christmas movie?
Miracle on 34th Street.
13. What's your favourite Christmas song?
Carol of the Bells. LOVE that song! That and Trans Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Eve Sarajevo
14. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I lived in Colorado for most of my life. White Christmas was pretty much a given. I was THRILLED to spend Christmas in California in 2006. I went swimming....OUTSIDE!!!
15. Do you ever go out carol singing?
Feck THAT! Sorry, but no way Jose. I once made the mistake of volunteering to be in a Parade of Lights. Yeah, never occured to me it'd be FREEZING in that elf costume, walking for miles on end.
16. When you were a kiddie, did you ever try and stay awake to catch Santa?
No.
17. Ever been kissed under the mistletoe?
Um....I think my cousin Alex pecked my cheek once when I was 5 because everyone thought it'd be cute for pictures. I'm sure it was, but I never saw hide nor hair of the pictures.
18. Do you help to decorate the tree?
I'm the only one who decorates our tree. I'm hoping it'll be a family activity next year.
19. Do you put presents under the tree or somewhere else?
Under the tree.
20. What's your fave ever part of Christmas?
Wrapping the presents. I absolutely love wrapping gifts...though this year I haven't been able to do any wrapping what with the budget being so tight and everyone getting cookies. This year my favorite part will be buying the ornaments at the after Christmas sales.

1. What present did you always want for Christmas and never got?
I honestly can't really think of anything. I've always had such an active imagination that I've never really used the toys that were bought for me.

2. Have you ever had a terrible present that you hated and what was it?
Anytime I get clothes that aren't socks. it either doesn't fit or I don't like the style at all. Seriously just give me a gift card or something if you want to get me clothes.

3. What do you want for Christmas this year?
A gas card.

4. Do you think you'll get it?
Most likely, it's what I get most years. It helps out a lot too.

5. On average, how much do you spend on Christmas presents?
I might spend anywhere from $30-50 for everything depending on how much stuff I make for others.

6. How will you spend Christmas Day?
With my mother and father, having a small dinner together.

7. Do you have pets; if yes, do you buy them presents?
Yeah, occasionally I'll buy a few catnip toys for my kitty.

8. What will you have for Christmas dinner?
We normally make a dinner of prime rib with potatoes, salad and other goodies.

9. Do you still believe in Santa?
Haha, nope.

10. Do you get a stocking?
Yeah, it's the one tradition that we all uphold, we fill each others stockings to the brim with candies and gag gifts.

11. Have you ever eaten so much chocolate during the holidays that you've groaned, "Please, no more chocolate?"
Nope, and I never want to. That sounds awful!

12. What's your favourite Christmas movie?
Umm... I have no clue. I don't watch tv or movies so i can't really think of any.

13. What's your favourite Christmas song?
Probably rockin' around the christmas tree. :D

14. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Almost every single year. My birthday is super close to christmas and one year when I was a little kid it snowed so much that the whole town was buried and no one came to my birthday party! haha. it's a pretty regular thing here.

15. Do you ever go out carol singing?
Oh no, I don't sing in front of strangers. >.>

16. When you were a kiddie, did you ever try and stay awake to catch Santa?
I tried so hard to catch Santa in the act. I devised elaborate plans to do so. I'd even show them to my parents to get confirmation that they were sound. I never did end up catching him...

17. Ever been kissed under the mistletoe?
Nope. I'm not much fond of mistletoe as decoration so i've never gotten the chance.

18. Do you help to decorate the tree?
Every year. It's tradition.

Under the tree.

1. What present did you always want for Christmas and never got?
There might have been a few little toys but I never actually asked for them. Although about from 6th to 10th grade I did want a keyboard so I could learn the piano.
2. Have you ever had a terrible present that you hated and what was it?
Umm... Not a terrible present, but I did have one Christmas that I just wasn't happy with anything.
3. What do you want for Christmas this year?
There is this gorgeous figurine by... um now I can't remember his name. Anyway it of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
4. Do you think you'll get it?
Yes, I was there when my mom put it on layaway.
5. On average, how much do you spend on Christmas presents?
I'd say between $50 - $75 for my immediate family. Of course one year I spent almost $300 on my sister to buy here a camera. On others I will spend $20 or lower, usually cause I get something that is 100% them. Like last year I got a co-woker 4 different types of M & M's (she's obssessed with them btw)
6. How will you spend Christmas Day?
Actually mom and I will probably sleep in. Then my sis and nephew will come over and we'll open presents. Then around 1 we are going over to my aunt's house where we are going to hand out and have dinner.
7. Do you have pets; if yes, do you buy them presents?
Yes. Both my mom and I have a cat. Usually the only special presents they get during the holidays is the liver and such out of the turkey (if we have one). My mom's cat, the first Christmas she was with us, tried to help my sister open on of her presents. It was so funny to watch her scratch off the wrapping paper in tiny pieces.
8. What will you have for Christmas dinner?
Umm I think we will be having BBQ pork ribs, ham, and a roast. I'm not sure what all of the side dishes will be. And as of now my mom and I have plans for 6 desserts, and will probably be making more (and that doesn't include the cookies)
9. Do you still believe in Santa?
Absolutely! ^_^
10. Do you get a stocking?
When we can find where we put them the year before. ^^
11. Have you ever eaten so much chocolate during the holidays that you've groaned, "Please, no more chocolate?"
That's impossible.
12. What's your favourite Christmas movie?
Christmas Shoes. I don't like a lot of Christmas movies cause there are so many out there that the only reason they have a plot is because it's Christmas.
13. What's your favourite Christmas song?
Do You Hear What I Hear, Carol of the Bells and just about anything done by Andy Williams. Oh and I love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
14. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Yep. A lot more when I was younger. Now usually we don't get our snow til January
15. Do you ever go out carol singing?
I will not join that insanity. Way to cold.
16. When you were a kiddie, did you ever try and stay awake to catch Santa?
Nope. I didn't want the elves to poke my eyes out with their pointy shoes.
17. Ever been kissed under the mistletoe?
No.
18. Do you help to decorate the tree?
Not really. My mom is kinda scary when it comes to decorating the tree so my sis and I usually only ever put up our special ornaments every year. Now that I'm older she still pretty much takes over.
19. Do you put presents under the tree or somewhere else?
They eventually make it under there. ^^
20. What's your fave ever part of Christmas?
My favorite time on Christmas day has always been when all the presents have been played with/investigated and dinner is done, and desseret is finished and the whole family is just perfect together.
