27 things about X-mess and me that you couldn’t care less about

2 minute read

Nicked from Diana’s blog, here’s my list of 27 things that you couldn’t care less about. Oh, and about xmess too. Or christmas. Whatever you want to call it.

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
    Wrapping paper. Nicer, but not so ecological.
  2. Real tree or Artificial?
    Artificial tree. I hate it to buy a tree that you’re gonna throw away anyway afterwards. If I could have a tree that we would dig up, put inside, afterwards put back outside in the earth to let it live, I’d be all for that.
  3. When do you put up the tree?
    First-second week(end) of december.
  4. When do you take the tree down?
    Somewhere in the beginning of the new year. Or later. :p
  5. Do you like eggnog?
    No idea, it’s not done here.
  6. Favorite gift received as a child?
    I don’t remember at all. Probably my first computer :p
  7. Hardest person to buy for?
    My father. Zero imagination, zero hobbies.
  8. Easiest person to buy for?
    Diana. And also at the same time a hard person to buy for ;)
  9. Do you have a nativity scene?
    Originally, yes. But very originally, when I was like 5 years old. I don’t believe in the stuff anymore, it’s been a tradition in the family for years. And a nice one ;)
  10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
    Snail mail self-made Christmas cards. People that I don’t have addresses for I usually email a card.
  11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
    Uhhm… I think it was a set of towels. Not really sure anymore.
  12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
    Scrooged ;) tough the 1st Harry Potter movie is very christmassy too.
  13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
    I start thinking of it round october/november, and shopping (online :p) in november.
  14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
    Depends on your definition of recycling. I’ve re-gifted stuff to other people, yes ;)
  15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
    Uuh… nothing really…
  16. Lights on the tree?
    Yup, colourful blinky lights. We originally set out to look for LED-based lights, but those were too damn expensive… We only light them when we’re in the room though.
  17. Favorite Christmas song?
    Don’t really have a favourite.
  18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
    Depends. With my girlfriend I’d prolly vote for either, as long as we get to spend the time together ;)
  19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer’s?
    Dancer, Dasher, Vixen, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. And ofcourse Rudolph.
  20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
    Neither. More like a poky-thingy. Dunno what it’s called.
  21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
    Christmas eve and Newyears eve. Christmas morning is for playing with them :p
  22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
    Too many people in every place, suddenly forgotten how to behave, how to drive, and so on.
  23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
    Glass ornaments, with different colours. Nice mix :)
  24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
    No idea really…
  25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
    Pressies! :p
  26. Who is least likely to respond to this?
    Ugh. No idea?
  27. Favorite thing about Christmas?
    Snow, cold weather, sitting inside with my gf in front of the fireplace ;)
