For Those Who Celebrate Christmas #1

What’s your favorite thing about the holidays?  spending time with my family and the laughter that comes from our kitchen adventures

Do you send out Christmas cards and if so how many do you send? I usually don't send cards, but I've been thinking about it this year

Be honest: holiday newsletters. Love ‘em or hate ‘em? Love 'em!

Be honest: photo cards. Love ‘em or hate ‘em? Love 'em!

How soon do you start shopping?  I usually pick things up as I find them throughout the year

Real or fake tree? a porcelain tree this year

When do you put up your tree? whenever I want to after Halloween

When do you take down your tree? Epiphany Sunday

Describe your typical tree (size, decorations, type)  
about 7 inches tall

What do you top your tree with? it has a star that glows

Do you put Christmas lights outside your house? no

Is there a wreath hanging on your door? no

Do you hang up stockings? no

Your favorite Christmas Movie(s) Elf, Christmas in Connecticut, A Christmas Carol (especially George C Scott's and the Muppets' versions)

Be honest: A Christmas movie you hate A Christmas Story

Favorite Christmas Song(s) today I'll go with Merry Christmas, Darling

Be honest: If I hear this/these Christmas songs again I will throw up I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

Give or Receive? both

Eggnog or Mulled Cider? meh--I guess cider

Ham or Turkey? either

I need to get out my Carpenter's Christmas CD. Yes that Hippo song gets on my nerves.

I've never seen the Muppets Christmas Carol, but I ADORE Mr. Magoo as Scrooge so if I stumble upon it, I'll give it a try.

A porcelain tree?

Sounds intriguing.

I have started watching Christmas movies. I watched Home Alone and Nightmare Before Christmas last night. I hadn't seen either one. I am thinking Elf and Miracle on 34th Street today. Loved your answers! Have a very Merry Christmas!

We are watching Hallmark & Lifetime Christmas movies, when we watch something. They are all the same, I couldn't tell you the name of a single one of them.

Porcelain tree? My wife wants to put just mine out, no other tree. :(
Merry Christmas!

I love that movie, and we watched 'A Christmas Carole" last night. But for some reason, it terrified poor Wolfie, at the end. The voice may have been too much like one he'd heard in the past. It was weird.
I want to watch "Elf" now that so many have it in favorites.
Merry Christmas, Kwizgiver.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and happy knitting and a Happy New Year.
