Meme Christmas!

Okay, I was tagged by Wiley but I love Christmas and I love a good meme so no worries, mate! Tis the time to get into the season!

1. Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yep - and I plan to finish it this week if everything goes accordingly

2. Tell me about one of your special traditions.
Christmas Day the whole family, me, Guard, Booknut, Mac, Daddy-O, and the Divine Ms K all get together to eat a meal and open presents and just hang out for awhile, sing carols and such. Since Guard's job sometimes has him working on Christmas, we find the nearest day he has off and we pretend it's Christmas and do the same thing.

3. When do you put up your Tree?
Well, this year I left it up all year around because it made me happy and it's pink. So today I plan to dust it off and add some new ornaments and turn the lights on it.

4. Are you a Black Friday shopper?
I try not to be but I have been known to shop on Black Friday but it had been YEARS since I hauled my ass outta bed to hit a pre-dawn sale.

5. Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
Since I moved back to Civilization, I don't have to travel. When I lived in the Wild West, I came home, about 2000 miles, for the holiday season.

6. What is your funniest Christmas memory?
A funny memory? I can't think of one that's funny really, though when Mac was about 2, every night he wanted me to pull him in his sled to the neighbor's house so he could see the dancing Frosty the Snowman that glowed at night

7. What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
Love Actually or The Holiday. I realize neither of these are really Christmas movies but traditional ones like A Christmas Story doesn't really amuse me and I still haven't seen It's a Wonderful Life (yeah, I know, I'm terrible!) I do like The Santa Clause, Scrooged, and A Christmas Carol with Albert Finney as Scrooge are also holiday favs of mine! This year I plan to watch White Christmas with Bing because it's been years since I've seen it.

8. Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
I like to do a little Christmas baking, though I haven't the last few years.

9. Fake or Real Tree?
Fake. My mom was allergic to tree sap so we never had a real tree

10. What day does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
I don't usually feel panicked about getting it done but about money.

11. Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Usually I am not though the last several years I've gotten to my folks house and helped them wrap gifts on Christmas Eve; I refused to wrap my own!

12. What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
If the weather cooperates, I love to take a night walk in the snow. Or at least catch up on my movie watching!

13. What Christmas craft do you like the best?
I have no ability to do crafts at Christmas or any other time of the year!

14. Christmas music? Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
I love Christmas music ! "All I want for Christmas is You", "Santa Baby", "Carol of the Bells", "Sleigh Ride", "The First Noel", and "Silent Night" are just a few of my favorites.

15. When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
This week!

"All I Want For Christmas Is You" is one of my absolute favorites! I never imagined that I could actually get excited about hearing Mariah Carey on the radio, but that song just always makes me giddy!
