1. When will your tree go up? Friday

2. Do you own a Christmas sweater or outfit? Do you wear a seasonal hat? I have a Christmas vest that DMIL made for me. I also have about a dozen pairs of Christmas socks. Socks used to be my thing so lots of people have given them as gifts and they're fun to wear during the season.

3. What do you have left for Christmas shopping? Did you do any online? I have maybe a dozen items left to buy but once I have good ideas, the shopping itself isn't so bad. I did some of my shopping online, maybe 10% this year.

4. Do you have a lot of office or other parties to attend this year? What about Christmas concerts? DH is boycotting his holiday party again this year. :( My department will most likely do a holiday lunch at some point in December. We have several concerts/plays on the list: a bells concert, It's A Wonderful Life radio play and the symphony is doing a Bugs Bunny concert near New Year's that I'm trying to talk DH into. (He thinks we're already scheduled enough but I've saved the info just in case)

5. How many containers of Christmas decoration do you have to put out? Any outside? I have 3 large boxes of decorations to put up. I also have lights for outside and 2 lighted trees that go on either side of our front porch.

Bonus:

What do you hate most about the season? Grumpy people although I'm starting to realize I'm grumpier myself this time of year :-/

What do you like most about the season? Reconnecting with friends; even though Facebook helps me stay in touch all year, I really enjoy getting Christmas cards from old friends!

That would be nice. Real or fake?

I love the Christmas socks LOL. how nice of her to make you a vest

I really like the online shopping too. So easy. You are way ahead of shopping compared to me this year. I have way too much to do lol. Need to get the knitting machine out too

4. Do you have a lot of office or other parties to attend this year? What about Christmas concerts? DH is boycotting his holiday party again this year. :( My department will most likely do a holiday lunch at some point in December.

Those concerts sound like a lot of fun. i miss the midnight services and all the music. none of that out here.

We, i think, are boycotting dh`s office party this year too. We have no one to sit with an still by ourselfs watching drunks all night. no fun in that.

5. How many containers of Christmas decoration do you have to put out? Any outside? I have 3 large boxes of decorations to put up. I also have lights for outside and 2 lighted trees that go on either side of our front porch.

I too want to put up a lighted tree in the front of the house. we will see what dh lets me do lol. I had at leat 14 containers i hauled up this year. no idea how many will be going back down and how many will be given away.

The crowds, the people, the traffic/+parking, the money, the relitive...ect. Can be the season to hate!

I will miss the cards. few send them here anymore. Yes facebook can be a great place to catch up
