Christmas Tag!!

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your family and friends.
Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy and paste into a new post and then tell anyone and everyone you want to do this that they have been tagged.. Change all the answers so that they apply to you....Tis the Season to be NICE!
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial , although I really LOVE the smell of a real one!
3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the day after Thanksgiving, But it all depends on when Robert helps me get it down. I personally think the longer it is up makes it actually worth the time it took you to put it up in the first place.
4. When do you take the tree down? Not until after New Years
5. Do you like eggnog? I don't like the stuff from the stores but I love the stuff my mom makes as it really is just and allspice, nutmeg milkshake.
