Christmas MEME

This one is fun - 24 questions about what you do at Christmas (if you celebrate). I'd love to hear what other people do!!

So - do like I have done and copy this onto a post and fill in your own answers!

Thanks kazzy_cee and pfeifferpack

Cheep wrapping paper - I am mean! But I can't see paying a lot of money for something that is going to be thrown away - I would prefer to buy another gift!
