It’s getting closer to Christmas and I thought that some of you might be interested in my answers to the Christmas meme, what with me being an atheist and all. Feel free to fill this meme out on your own blog. If you do, post a link to it in the comments.

  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Honestly, you’re lucky I take the gift out of the bag it came in. In fact, sometimes I don’t.
  2. Real tree or artificial? My family has always had a real tree, but the past couple of years, Morah and I have set up a little two-foot tall fake tree. Have you seen fake trees lately? They’re pretty damn nice. And if you have half a brain about how to store them, they won’t collect dust.
  3. When do you put up the tree? When Morah says it’s time to.
  4. When do you take the tree down? When I say it’s time to. If the tree is still up on 1 January, it’s been up too long.
  5. Do you like eggnog? Yes! I love eggnog mixed with lemon-lime soda (7-Up, Sierra Mist, etc).
  6. Favorite gift received as a child? There was this little electric car that my parents got me one year. That thing was sweet.
  7. Do you have a nativity scene? Morah got part of one as a gift last Christmas. The three wise men are missing, though.
  8. Hardest person to buy for? Everyone? I don’t know.
  9. Easiest person to buy for? Me; I always know what I want!
  10. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Neither.
  11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I would say, but I’m not sure if the person who gave it to me reads my blog or not.
  12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Bernard and the Genie. Anything with Alan Cumming and Rowan Atkinson has to be good.
  13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Pretty much all year long. If I see something that would make a good gift for someone, I’ll buy it.
  14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes.
  15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Food? Kris will agree with me on this one.
  16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? It depends on how I’m decorating the tree, but my family has always been a colored light family.
  17. Favorite Christmas song? Carol of the Bells
  18. Christmas Song That, When You Hear It, Makes Your Eyes Bleed And Your Brains Start To Leak Out Your Ears, Because That Is Less Painful Than Having To Listen To That Fucking Song One More Time! Little Drummer Boy
  19. Travel at Christmas or stay home? 9 out of 10 times, we stay at home. This year is a travel year. Look out, Clarkston, here we come!
  20. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeers? Not only can I name them all, I know Donner and Blitzen’s real names.
  21. Angel on the tree top or a star? Again, it depends on what I’m going for, but if I could have whatever I want, I’d go with a star.
  22. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? One present on Christmas Eve, the rest the next morning.
  23. Most annoying thing about this time of year? People and everything that entails.
  24. Favorite Christmas Tradition? Christmas dinner!
  25. Outdoor decorations? None to speak of.

  1. LG

    Clarkston? I tore up the bowling alley/karaoke bar there a number of times while I was going to school in Lewiston. Good times!

  2. I don’t exchange presents, and I don’t put up decorations (I live in a dorm). Are…are there any questions left that apply to me?

    5. Eggnog is delicious! Wait, is it still eggnog without the alcohol?

    12. The Great Escape (a classic Christmas movie in the U.K.)

    15. I agree with Thomas.

    17. I agree with Thomas! Hell yes! I have, like, 5 versions of Carol of the Bells on my mp3 player, all year round.

    18. Every other Christmas song.

    20. Damn, Thomas.

    23. Agent Kent Mansley, and all that implies.

    24. Laying in wait to ambush Santa. We…we all do that, right?
