I Must Be Scrooge-

I received this questionnaire via email asking me to post my answers and send it to everyone I know. Oh, and I have to try not to be Scrooge. I think I flunk, cause my answers were not even close to what was sent to me. I am sorry, but I don't like Christmas or really participate. I love the songs, the colors, the lights but so dislike the shopping, the greed, the insanity that now starts in August. I prefer to celebrate birthdays, anny's and "just because" days. That way it's special to each person. So anyone got a WII as daughter just had a BD and I cant find one for her :(

Here are my answers and if it makes me a Scrooge, well I have many reasons why. But I am very generous in ways others don't know or see. I just like to do it privately.

  • 1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? How about garbage bags? Donation bags really.
  • 2. Real tree or Artificial? No tree-I have cats! Trees belong outside.
  • 3. When do you put up the tree? When I plant one in the spring in my yard.
  • 4. When do you take the tree down? When hubby runs over one with the mower.
  • 5. Do you like eggnog? Eeeewwwww! Raw eggs??? Eeeewwwww!
  • 6. Favorite gift received as a child? Barbie Dreamhouse-made from cardboard. $3.00 at Kmart
