A Seasonal Meme

I was tagged for this by Poopsie Blue over at My True Colours.

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends!
Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, & try not to be a SCROOGE!!!
Just copy and paste into a new form.
Change all the answers so that they apply only to you.
Then post it!

And, do remember to tell, all you tag, that they are playing too!
Here goes...
'Tis the Season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Whatever works best, but preferably gift-wrap, ribbons, and tags.

2. Real tree or Artificial?
I love the smell of a real tree, and I'd like a rooted one in a tub. Unfortunately, space decrees a small artificial tree.

I think I might tag myself and do that one, but I'll wait another week or two!

Darn! I hope it's not to late to stop Santa from bringing you those chocolate toffees and eggnog I'd asked him to give you. LOL! xoxo
