Sometimes never! Well, only if we're away...this year I got it up nice & early, by the 1st!

No set time actually...We're often away so it'll be as soon as we're back & unpacked, otherwise early January...is there actually an 'official' date???
FAVORITE GIFT RECEIVED AS A CHILD?
Nothing springs to mind...did have some cool toys though...could have got them as Christmas gifts...certainly Christmas or Birthday as there were no treats in between in 'the old days!'

Men in general, as I refuse to go the socks or underpants route!

All the kids...they certainly let me know EXACTLY what they want...it's just a matter of what I can afford as the list goes on & on...
DO YOU HAVE A NATIVITY SCENE?
No, I'd love a hand-carved wooden one but they seem impossible to find. My parents own a beautiful one that I remember from my childhood Christmases...hopefully it will find it's way back to me one day.
