Blogs » Quixotic Quicksand » Zany Miscellany: Christmas Edition


A friend of the Vicad blogs, TitanKT, has thoughtfully provided a fun list of holiday-related questions that will guide my “Ten Things” for this week—and the coming weeks, as well.

When is the best time to open presents? I open one gift the night before Christmas and the rest on Christmas morning.

Have you been naughty or nice this year? Umm…Nice?

Real tree or imitation tree? I own an imitation tree, but I prefer real ones…Although those kitschy aluminum trees are pretty spiffy.

Favorite Christmas cartoon character? My heart goes out to the ephemeral Frosty the Snowman.

Did you ever write Santa a letter? Yes, I think so.

Buy any Christmas presents online? I try to buy them all online.

Save the ribbons and paper or rip right through it? Rip it, baby!

Sharing Christmas with family this year? Yes.

Ever ride in a one horse open sleigh? Nope. I would like to, but I am deathly allergic to horses.

Ever roast a chestnut on an open fire? No. I like chestnuts, but you’ll likely not find me near open fires. Not that I’m a worrywart or anything…

Stay tuned for answers to more Yuletide questions next Thursday, and please feel free to answer any or all of these questions in the comments below!
