With a link from Ultra Dave I took the Christmas Tree Test.
And it's pretty much on the money for me:
During the holidays, you do things your own way. Except even more so. I've expressed my feelings about the holiday before.
You have eccentric decorations and traditions. My only concession to the holiday this year has been to bake Christmas Cookies.
We don't even have a "Charlie Brown" tree this year or wrapped gifts or the stockings. We don't have any decorations except for the ceramic tree and a wreath in the sunroom.
You like to keep things a little kooky and crazy. Hubby wrote cards. We had some friends over for a "traditional Christmas lasagna" a few weeks ago. No gifts, just dinner.
You hate it when the holidays are too upscale or stuffy. We decided - and this year it was more hubby than me - to avoid Holiday parties and even family get-togethers (which for Leon is easy as family is at a distance). We are definitely as far as you can get from "upscale".
You believe that the holidays are for everyone, and you like to make your own celebration funky and eclectic. We are planning to spend a quiet day at home or somewhere...we wanted to go to a gay guest house in Vermont but money is an issue this year.
You mix and match what you like best. No one is going to tell you how to celebrate this year! That sums it up.
Money. It really is all relative. We have everything we need (new tires, fuel oil, food). What we "want" we can't afford (and you probably can't afford to give it to us either). We did go "shopping" (read "looking") for that LED Panasonic TV, a new gas range, a snowplow for the truck, new Apple Computer) but came home with groceries and a few odds and ends from Ocean State Job Lot.
Leon got "us" a Netflix subscription and a Roku box which allows you to watch Netflix movies and TV series on demand over the internet and wireless router. It really is cool, and definitely worth the price - especially as we are TV/movie junkies. Hubby always manages to get "us" something he wants, "Well, you use it too."
So I guess you can say we are a "Bah Humbug" couple this year. Merry Christmas.
