This comes as a shock to me!  You mean, Santa just came out of the closet.  Well that explains a lot!  That is why he is so jolly all the time!

Yes.  We do our Christmas opening on Christmas eve.

I am a giver by nature.  I do love receiving as well. 

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? 
What Child is This?
 
20. Candy Canes? 
Not a huge fan of eating them but they look nice as decorations on the tree. 
 
21. Do you feel Christmas is too commercialized? Or Is it still magical for you?
Christmas is what you make of it.  If you allow commercialism to take over than the spirit can be lost.  Just stay with your traditions, enjoy your family and friends, be happy and positive and the season should make you smile a lot.

I do love Christmas, and my boyhood memories are still very vivid.   It seems to me Christmas is the one time of year people really do get along.  :)    But I do hate all the "politically correct" attempts to rewrite it..    :(    luvya   J
