3. When do you put up the tree? Whenever we have time. Hopefully before Christmas Eve!
4. When do you take the tree down? Early mid-January probably.
5. Do you like egg nog? Mmmhmmm. Extra whiskey in mine please.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? I got an outfit once that looked like the girl in the ZZ Top music video 'Legs'. Mini-skirt, pearlescent tights, pink ruffly socks, white shoes. I was HOTTT.
7. Do you have a nativity scene? No, but we do have an electric Menorah.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Well, I was going to say I like glass blue balls, but it made me giggle. I have a bunch of ornaments from when I was a kid, but my favorite one is the little plastic tree with the decorate-your-own paper inside. One side was decorated like a tree, and the other said "I love Wham!".
