Christmas Fun - Getting to Know You

I love Christmas. I still get just as excited about it as when I was a child. I saw this neat post over at Top Ten Christmas Blog and I wanted to play along :)

Anyone can participate, so if you'd like, post this on your blog and link up on Heather's site.

Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes! Almost done too!

Tell me about one of your special traditions.
I like to play Christmas music while decorating the tree. Also love to attend the Dicken's festival in my town.

Are you a Black Friday Shopper?
No - It's just not worth it to me. I get way too stressed out!

When do you put up your Tree?
The fake one is up. If we get a real one, around the 10th.

Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
I prefer to host so we can stay home.

What is your funniest Christmas memory?
Getting caught by my parents snooping as a kid! Embarrassing at the time, now funny! My Dad was really mad!

What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
Miracle on 34th Street.

Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
Yes - love baking all kinds of cookies from my big cookbook of cookie recipes.

Fake or Real Tree?
Both this year, usually just fake.

What day (as a mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
I'm already panicked because I've got the birthday planning going on at the same time.

Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Heck no - I hope to be done waay before then!

What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
Decorating the tree/house.

What Christmas craft do you like the best?
Making ornaments!

Christmas music. Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
Yes! All of the classics. I don't like the new versions as much.

When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
By next week!
