Christmas

I stole this from another blog (she had way better answers than me, but I thought it would be fun anyway:)

Real tree or Artificial? we have an artificial tree...I am sure it would be wonderful to go cut down a tree and bring it home....but really, that would require way too much effort...and I would have to be in the cold
Do you like eggnog? sounds too disgusting to even try
Do you have a nativity scene? yes, 2.
Worst Christmas gift you ever received?

What do you want for Christmas this year? a fondue pot...and my hubby
Does Santa wrap presents or just put them under the tree? at our house, santa did not wrap gifts, only mom and dad....at Marks house, it was a mix. So we do it my way:)...although he insists one thing in the stocking is wrapped...he had that growing up.
Colored lights on house/tree or white? WHITE!! Although I am really beginning to enjoy all the colored lights on the outside...but white on the tree

Just wanted to help you out with naming Santa's reindeer.... they are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder, and Blixem. Those are the original names.
Some people have changed Dunder to Donner or Donder, and some have changed Blixem to Blitzen or Bliksem. Rudolph was not one of the original reindeer. Love you honey.

Love, Mark
