    gift bags & boxes

    2. Real tree or artificial?
    Our tree is made from grape-vine. It is a lovely centerpiece year-long then - with lights, ornaments & glitter - it is transformed into a Christmas tree each year.

    3. When do you put up the tree?
    1st of December

    4. When do you take the tree down?

    A horrid, fake-fur, zebra-striped winter coat. My sis & I each got one (from our mum) when we were in our teens. We smiled and said thanks to mum, then caught each other rolling our eyes and couldn't help but giggle each time we made eye contact. The coat was ugly, objectively hideous but as I suffered through my first -40% winter (when I lived up North) there was nothing warmer than that ugly coat and at those temps, fashion means nothing.

    Both! It depends on the gift.

    11. Favorite Christmas Movie?
    The Santa Claus movies and Christmas With the Kranks. I love Tim Allen!

    21. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
    1). Commercialism!! Greedy retailer's starting to promote buying WAY too early!
    2). Being too tired to do Christmas the way I want to (used to),and depending on others to pick up where I left off.
    3). People/organizations who try to take the Christ out of Christmas to be "politically correct!!!!!"

    22. What I love most about Christmas?
    Focusing on the REAL "Reason for the Season", finding special gifts for my family, decorating the tree and reminiscing as we put each special ornament on it.
    Also, remembering loved ones that are no longer with us, and recalling the happy times we had with them :)

    Merry Christmas, and God Bless everyone!
