Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, copy, paste, and insert your answers. Don't be a SCROOGE!!!
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper unless it’s too odd-shaped to wrap and then I cheat and use a bag.
2. Real tree or artificial? Artifical because although they are plastic and therefore seen as bad for the environment, I hate the thought of a little tree’s life ending because I want to put it into my house for a few weeks. So I have an artificial tree and I love it. No pine needles to tidy up!
3. When do you put up the tree? As close to the start of December as possible.
4. When do you take the tree down? Before the 12th Night of course.
5. Do you like eggnog? I’m not sure I’ve had the proper kind. I love sickly drinks but this might be a bit sickly too far.
