Meet Me On Monday

Meet Me on Monday
Christmas Edition
Java says:
For this weeks Meet Me On Monday, I'm going to have all the questions Christmas related and 15 questions instead of 5 since there will be no Meet Me On Monday next week (Christmas) or the week after that (New Years)!


1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Both, plus the boxes that look as if they are already wrapped.
2.Real or artificial tree?
I'm allergic to the real ones...
3.When do you put your tree up?
I like to put it up the weekend following Thanksgiving, although, this year it was later....years ago when our children were home, we put it up a week before Christmas.
4.When do you take your tree down?
I like to leave it up until after Epiphany if I can stand it.
5.Do you like eggnog?
Not really....I had some a couple of years ago that
was quite tasty, though.
6.Do you have a nativity scene?
Of course. There are 3 in our house this year.
7.Favorite Christmas Movie?
I don't really have a favorite one.
8.Favorite Christmas cookie?
I don't really have a favorite. I like those
Danish cookies and Magic Cookie Bars are a must.
9.Where will you eat Christmas dinner?
We will be hosting it at our house this year.
10.Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?
Angels on the two large trees, stars on the minis.
11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
The crowds in the stores.
12.Do you like Fruitcake?
I love the fruitcake that I make. I don't use any of the
citrus peel at all, but use the candied cherries, dates, raisins,
and 3 kinds of nuts 
13.What are you most excited about the holidays?
Seeing everyone open the gifts I've given,especially the
14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
It has been our tradition to open family gifts on Christmas
Eve because we always went somewhere on Christmas Day.
This year is going to be different since our Daughter's divorce.
We'll have our Christmas Eve dinner and gift exchange with her
but the children will be with their Father so we'll
open gifts with them on Christmas evening.
15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve? 
No, I finished that early last week....however
if I happen to see something while out 
and about that I'd like to give someone, I will wrap that
one this week.
If you'd like to join in this weeks MMOM
or just read some other answers, hop over
to Java's place.


  1. It seems most of us are annoyed by the crowds during the holiday season. It can put such a damper on Christmas.
    Merry Christmas to your family!

  2. I do not like the crowds either.

  3. I've never been an eggnog fan, either.

    I think a lot of people must be off this week. I was out yesterday thinking a Monday wouldn't be as bad as the weekends, but it was pretty crowded.

  4. I was going through MMOM withdrawl - so I've resurrected it on Acting Balanced until Java starts posting again - please feel free to stop by and check out this week's questions at
