    1.
    A) traditional roast. Not a big meat eater but love a roast pork leg on xmas (well the cracking mainly) 😀

    2.
    B) chuck it all anywhere. Cannot post on the xmas tree thread as will die of shame 😂

    3.
    A) shake the presents the night before. Ummmm duh?!

    4.
    B) ignore the mince pies and custard. Bleugh. Fruit mince. Bleugh.

    5.
    B) rush out screaming 'BUY ALL OF THE PRESENTS' on Christmas Eve. Maybe not xmas eve but sometime in the 2 weeks prior!

    6.
    A) save the Christmas cards
    B) ditch the Christmas cards
    **C** save the spesh ones (one from DH and parents) and ditch the rest. Sorry peeps.

    7.
    B) find Christmas stressful. Presents, shopping, wrapping, parties, transport. Stressful!

    8.
    A) celebrate on Christmas Day

    9.
    B) buy the crap crackers. Every time not a second thought

    10.
    C) both A and B. Maybe not quite confident. Please have different coloured avatar thingys that would help immensely!

    And @harvs please share your answers 😀

    1.

    B) something different. Cold ham, seafood and salads. Yum!

    3.
    A) shake, poke, smell (anything that might help me guess) the presents the night before


    4.
    A/b) adore the mince pies and ignore custard. I'll have mine with brandy cream thanks.

    6.
    B) ditch the Christmas cards

    7.
    A) find Christmas relaxing. It's my favourite time of year.

    9.
    A) buy the posh crackers and inevitably end up disappointed because they're all crap really.


    10.
    A) confidently know the difference between BettyV and BettyW. I'm pretty sure I've got the differences down pat. If it helps others though, I do have a name change in the works. It should be changed to hervs any day now. 😝

    1.

    B) something different

    It depends where we are! Sometimes it's the traditional roast, sometimes it's cold ham/roast turkey/roast chicken/prawns and salads, sometimes it's a mixture of the two!

    2.
    A) matchy matchy OCD Christmas Tree?
    B) chuck it all anywhere

    Definitely A

    3.
    A) shake the presents the night before
    B) DO NOT EVER TOUCH THE PRESENTS

    Um... B. But mainly because I usually know what they all are, and because if you touch one you will disturb my carefully and artistically balanced pile of presents

    4.
    A) adore the mince pies and custard
    B) ignore the mince pies and custard

    All the pies... and any other dessert going *drool*

    5.
    A) shop wisely and frugally throughout the year
    B) rush out screaming 'BUY ALL OF THE PRESENTS' on Christmas Eve

    Somewhere between the two. This year we're going closer to the latter. I still need to buy for DS, DH and mum this week.

    6.
    A) save the Christmas cards
    B) ditch the Christmas cards

    No Christmas cards thanks.

    7.
    A) find Christmas relaxing
    B) find Christmas stressful

    Both... that sounds odd. I love it... but I can definitely find it stressful. My family is crazy. My in laws are crazy. It's wonderful, but as the only introvert among them all, it's exhausting and sometimes hard.

    8.
    A) celebrate on Christmas Day
    B) celebrate on Christmas Eve

    Both... and also on boxing day. Depending once again on where we are.

    9.
    A) buy the posh crackers
    B) buy the crap crackers

    Ummm... whatever I happen to grab off the shelf.

    10.
    A) confidently know the difference between BettyV and BettyW
    B) think we should force them to be part of a thread where we can ask them any question we like and they have to answer
    C) both A and B

    Definitely C.

    1. A - I do mix it up every year but there's always roasted meat of some description in there!

    2. A/B I do suffer from tree OCD but have had to let it go and embrace the random eccentricities that come from children being in charge of decorating.

    3. A Shake it baby!

    4. C Not my favourite but don't hate it, so I eat it.

    5. C. Start shopping in October because I live in the back of beyond but I still buy wrapping paper and ribbon and random stocking fillers right up to Christmas Eve.

    6. C. Save the special ones and recycle the rest.

    7. C. Depends on who I'm with!

    8. B Christmas Day

    9. C. Cheap!

    10. A. I know my V from my W.

    We have a feast of polish food Christmas eve (which is when I celebrate) Christmas day with the IL's is cold meat, seafood and salad followed by trifle

    A) adore the mince pies and custard
    Loooovvvveee fruit mince pies. Has to be brandy custard though


    5.
    A) shop wisely and frugally throughout the year
    If I didn't, we would not be able to afford Christmas

    6.
    A) save the Christmas cards
    B) ditch the Christmas cards
    Bit of both. If there is a special message, photos etc I tend to keep them. Maybe 1 or 2 a year are kept. t
    The rest I now give to dd to cut and paste with...before ditching them

    7.
    A) find Christmas relaxing
    To a degree. It a always a mad house cooking but that's what I love

    8.
    B) celebrate on Christmas Eve
    I'm Polish and have celebrated traditionally on Christmas eve all my life. DH is thankfully happy to continue my traditions so we still do. We do though celebrate with his family Christmas day

    9.
    A) buy the posh crackers
    B) buy the crap crackers
    Neither - I make my own!

    10.
    A) confidently know the difference between BettyV and BettyW
    B) think we should force them to be part of a thread where we can ask them any question we like and they have to answer
    C) both A and B
    Wouldn't having them both in a thread confuse us all even more??
