A stolen Christmas Meme

I stole this from WIGSF - thought it was a good one!

Here goes...

What do you really want for Christmas but you know nobody will get it for you?

I can't really think of anything that I really want this year! Amazing, I know. I wouldn't mind a new guitar (even though I really do have enough already), but that is about it really...

What do you not want for Christmas but you know that somebody will get it for you?

We tend to be pretty careful with our presents - I can't remember the last time I got something that I didn't want!

When do you open your gifts (Christmas eve or Christmas morning)?

Christmas morning, with a few saved until after dinner too! Christmas Eve?

Do you prefer gifts wrapped or in gift bags?

Wrapped - you have got to have that paper ripping experience!

Did you regift anything this year?


What’s your favourite Christmas movie

Hah, my older readers will know this one! A Christmas Story! I have already watched it twice! "You'll shoot your eye out!"

What’s your favourite Christmas TV special

The Vicar of Dibley. She cannot bring herself to refuse Christmas Dinner with a series of lonely people, ending up eating around 4 massive meals, one after the other. Utterly hilarious.

Do you like egg nog?

I have never felt the urge to try it...

Real tree or fake tree, which do you prefer?

Prefer real but have a fake one.

Would you actually use one of those fireplace DVDs if you don’t have a fireplace?

We don't have a real fireplace, but Mrs RC has just built us a fake one!

Are you sick of Christmas music yet?

No! Never!

Are you getting up early to wait in line to do some Boxing Day shopping?

Absolutely not! This is a day for total relaxation, having fun with the family, etc. I do not want to waste it fighting my way around shops! I have a theory - God gave us Christmas, so the Devil evened things up by giving us Christmas shopping :-)

When was the last time you sat on Santa’s lap?

I don't think I ever sat on Santa's lap. Always found them a bit scarey as a kid - strange men in fake beards, there is something really wrong there...

Anyone else want to try this?

Ahh yes! A Christmas Story! Quite possibly the best movie ever made! I can't believe I haven't yet watched it this year. I have a gift certificate for books and I plan to buy the one on which this movie is based. (In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash.)

I might give this meme a shot in the next few days...

You can never have enough guitars.

Stealing is good.... :)
Now we know the mind of a Santa-Claus-phobic man.

Terri - I keep meaning to find this book.

wigsf - How true...

Shadowthorne - I guess so! But is stealing at Christmas even worse than usual?
