Meet Me on Monday #62 - Christmas Edition

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!


1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper! I am the queen of wrapping presents, I really really love it

2.Real or artificial tree?
I was an artificial tree person, until I met my current boyfriend. We've had a real tree for every year for the last 4 years. Love the way it smells. Hate the cleanup!

3.When do you put your tree up?
Ideally, it would be the Saturday after Thanksgiving. In the real world, it usually is about two weeks before Christmas.

4.When do you take your tree down?
Weekend after New Year's

5.Do you like eggnog?
Nope. There's just something about it that makes me want to hurl

6.Do you have a nativity scene?

7.Favorite Christmas Movie?
A Christmas Story.

8.Favorite Christmas cookie?
I've never met a cookie I didn't like. As for favorite, hmm, that would have to be these little hazelnut cookies that my mom and I used to made. Man, I should get that recipe from her!

9.Where will you eat Christmas dinner?
At the boyfriend's mother house. She called today to ask us to come by. Thankfully I hadn't bought stuff to make at home yet

10.Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?
Angel, but I've been digging the bows. Maybe next year.

11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
Crowds. Christmas is about spreading cheer. Not running people over to get the latest "new" thing. I was in NYC this past Saturday to see the tree and what not. It was so bad! Makes you want to punch someone. I felt like a pinball in a machine.

12.Do you like Fruitcake?
Do people really eat fruitcake? Nope, not at all.

13.What are you most excited about the holidays?
Time off from work!

14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
We open 1 gift on Christmas Eve to celebrate the German Christmas (which usually ends up being opening all but one), then the rest in the morning

15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Nope, they are all wrapped and ready to be opened


  1. Loved your answers, Natasha,
    I'm with you when it comes to Fruitcake. I don't think I've ever finished a piece and don't plan to any time soon.
    Have a wonderful Christmas dinner with you boyfriend at his mother house. Enjoy your time off work.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. I've never had a real Christmas tree. I don't think I would like to clean up all the mess :-/
    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Good answers. I must be weird, I actually like fruitcake :-)
    Merry Christmas.

  4. I was going through MMOM withdrawl - so I've resurrected it on Acting Balanced until Java starts posting again - please feel free to stop by and check out this week's questions at
