9. Do you have a nativity scene?

Nope.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?

Both.

A reindeer shaped nightlight. I was in my thirties. There was a warning on the box, not only about possible fire hazards, but that certain parts of the light contained cancer causing chemicals.

Mid-November

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?

Nope.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?

Jamaican Black Cake (traditionally, the fruit & raisins soak for years in wine/rum in a big mason jar. Only enough of it is taken out to make that year's batch of cakes, then the jar is topped up with more rum, wine and dried raisins/fuit. It's rich, moist and delicious and nothing like regular fruitcake)

Yes.

Love them all. Impossible to pick just one.

Usually stay home.

Dasher and Dancer and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner, and Blitzen...and do you recall...the most famous reindeer of all...Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (had to sing the song to get them all!) - Copied from Joyce who sent me this email.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?

Angel

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?

One gift gets opened Christmas Eve (this was to stop the boy from making me crazy with his begging), the rest get opened Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?

It's a lot of work for one day that's over so fast. And the crowds in the stores. And all the "business" Christmas fuctions you're expected to put in an appearance at, but cut into your damn work day.

23. Favorite ornament, theme or color?

Some of my old ones that carry special memories.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?

Turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, rice n peas, mashed potatoes, salad, broccoli roasted with garlic and parmesan, home-made baked mac n cheese, apple-pie, chocolate cake.

Peace in the world, happiness and good health for myself, my family and friends.
