Saturday Six on Wednesday

1. On an average year, how many days before Christmas do you generally finish your Christmas shopping? I am usually totally done three weeks before.

2. Is the economy making you spend any less on gifts this year, or are you spending about the same? I have spent about the same.

3. What part of the Christmas scene do you find the most chaotic? What part do you generally worry most about? Visiting the in-laws on Christmas day. It isn't the house that is chaotic, it's the traveling and the stress I feel leading up to the day. Last year was the first year I told them I wouldn't be coming on Christmas Eve (something we have been doing for over 14 years) because I wanted my kids to fall asleep in their own home. My husband's family always does Christmas Eve gifts at Midnight. When we leave there my children obviously are already sleeping from the hour + ride and then we carry them to their beds. They never get to experience what I loved as a child; putting out the milk and cookies and trying not to fall asleep for fear you would miss Santa. I want them to have that and honestly, my son's reaction to the cookies being gone last year is my favorite memory from Christmas morning. Read it here.

4. Take the quiz:

Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas

5. What Christmas movie is your favorite? Which one is your least favorite? I like the Polar Express. I guess my least favorite is The Christmas Story. I know it is a classic but I just don't get it and think once is enough.

6. What Christmas tradition from years past do you miss the most now? I guess it would be opening 1 present which was always PJ's
