20 Questions

Hi gang, so I had a lovely first day of my jollies (holiday) today, i had a bit of a sleep in, baked a little and had a visit from my mam, she spoilt me rotten with lovely cheer me up presents....wanna see?
The cutest xmas cake stand, too cute right?
Super cute xmas sign i just love it, you like my paper chains? both of my pressies are from Laura Ashley and i had often swooned over them. She also brought tons of chocolate and yummy things so very spoilt.
We had a little trip to Baa Ram Ewe which was looking all xmassy

I dont have any other photos from our day but it was jolly nice and my MIL popped round too so we all had a natter whilst knitting.

So the title of this post 20 Questions, i kinda copied this from someones blog so edited a few just a few festive questions which were fun to answer, feel free to steal them from me coz it was fun.

20 Christmas Questions

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper of course

2. Real tree or Artificial? i like the idea of a real one but i love my new 8ft tree

3. When do you put up the tree? as soon as i can, normally the 1st December

4. When do you take the tree down? New Years day normally

5. Favorite gift received as a child? My gorgeous dog, we got him early on the 28th november 1990 i remember it like it was yesterday!

6. Hardest person to buy for? normally my brother in law but rob is proving tricky this year

14. Favorite Christmas song? Please come home for christmas the Bonjovi version i think, oh so many i have the best christmas play list on my iphone

15. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I travel home to my parents, then travel back to Leeds for our 2nd christmas day on boxing day, then me and rob normally hang out just us on the 27th but rob is working this year, but i have been told not to grumble as it is only working that so he could get my birthday off, but still hhmmm

16. Angel, star or ribbon on top of tree? we have a mickey and minnie statue on top of our tree its cute, but prob could do with replacing next year as mickey lost his hand last year ouch!

17. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? morning! of course, its only the past couple of years my parents have introduced the open one on xmas eve and im not sure im on board yet

18. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? I hate the phrase Happy Holidays, i am aware this covers all religions etc but man does it bug me, its flaming christmas, holidays in the UK is surely summer holidays ggrr

Rachel,
I have traced the questions back to YOU so far. Did you start this? Great idea. I also posted questions on my blog, and added a few additions of my own. I am in the U.S., but agree that it is Merry CHRISTmas, and not happy holidays. So -- MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU!
