Christmas Meme--Partake if you like

There was sort of a group tag over at So She Writes that if you read the post you were tagged.  I won't do that to ya lol but if you want to join in go ahead.  I mean it's Christmas time after all.

1. What is your favorite Christmas song?
This Christmas by Donny Hathaway.  It never feels like Christmas till I hear this booming out of speakers in December.  I'm very traditional--Christmas music before December is just an abomination.

2. What is your favorite Christmas Treat?
I don't really have one.  Mom's candy cane shaped cookies were delicious as a kid but now it's whatever sweet thing is around that we all like.

3. What is your favorite childhood Christmas memory?
Probably the year before my parents split up.  I got my first Cabbage Patch kid, Rachel--most of my kids have R names because my family is full of R names--and the family got the first computer we owned.  A Commodore 64 that was cutting edge at the time but was a brick really and only did word processing and a few basic computer games.  Oh and my brother got Star Wars stuff he quickly abandoned to kidnap Rachel until we could get him his own CPK later.

4. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever given?
I seriously don't know because I tend to shop to list and that makes everyone pretty happy.  I know my dad really liked homemade gifts so I tended to make his but I think those were more for his birthday and Father's Day. 

5. Do you make or buy keepsake ornaments for your family every year?
No I really hate decorating the tree, does nothing for me.  I think it's because my birthday is like a week before Christmas and I don't like anything stealing my birthday thunder.

6. Would you rather be one of Santa’s elves or a reindeer?
I'm short enough to be an elf but the wardrobe is limited, you can't tell anyone what you are working on, and when do you vacation?  I mean there are BILLIONS of people on the planet it's not like you can do all that production in one more or two.  Plus everyone remembers the reindeers' names--well most of them and you really only work one night a year and get well taken care of.  I'll be Donner everyone remembers Donner, you're screwed the further you get back in the song.

7. Gift wrap or gift bags?
I totally suck at wrapping gifts but I have an aversion to gift bags.  It makes me feel super lazy to not even try.  Remember I sent badly wrapped gifts to my brother yesterday lol.

8. Do you own a Santa hat?
No and don't send me one please.

9. Do you prefer Black Friday, or Day-After-Christmas sales?
I really hate shopping.  Like I think my dad wished for a non shopping girl and his prayers were answered because if it's not on sale, when I think I need something, and convenient I can seriously do without so much.  Plus I can do most of them online now so I avoid the crowds like the plague.

10. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
When I'm in a cold climate I like hot chocolate.  I don't like egg nog at all ever.

There ya go, more useless trivia about me lol.  Have a great Saturday.
