    A bit of both. Cards to close friends and relatives; e-cards to those with who I stay connected via the internet.

    2.) Are there clear or colored lights on your tree?
    No lights on the tree. We decorate the old fashioned way with antique ornaments. White icycle lights on the exterior.

    3.) Do you have an angel or star on top of your tree?
    Neither, we use a large red ribbon.

    4.) Do you have a nativity scene in your home?
    Nope!

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift?
    No, I have not but I am certain others in my household have.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    2.) Are there clear or colored lights on your tree? I haven't put a tree up in at least 5 years. Partially 'cause it's just me at the house, but the last few years, I've been travelling around the holidays & just didn't have time. Last year, I left for Italy the day after Christmas.

    3.) Do you have an angel or star on top of your tree? See above. If I had time/reason to put up a tree, I have an angel topper.

    4.) Do you have a nativity scene in your home? Yes.

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift? No, never had the need to.
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    1.) Do you mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Mail them. Every year. Religiously. Birthday cards too.

    2.) Are there clear or colored lights on your tree? Colored.

    3.) Do you have an angel or star on top of your tree? Both! The angel is holding a star!

    4.) Do you have a nativity scene in your home? Sure do! Granted, it's one of those window cling ones right now, but it's still a Nativity.

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift? I don't think so. I have given gifts to people of things that I may have bought for myself and never used, but I've never given away a gift that I got for Christmas.

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift? heh...yes...but not as a main gift...mostly like little side gifts

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift?
    1.) Neither. I don't send any cards. The people who get cards from me are the people I see.

    2.) My tree has "casino" lights on it, half of them are 2 cards together (an ace and a jack), and the other half are red dice. More casino/poker fare decorate the tree as well.

    3.) I have a santa hat on top, with a poinsettia bud/leaf and some red berries.

    4.) Nope.

    5.) Not sure if I have, but I totally would if I still had a bad gift a year later.

    1.) Do you mail or e-mail Christmas cards? I do and have done both. Depends on who I'm sending greetings to.

    2.) Are there clear or colored lights on your tree? I prefer colored lights. But then I'm a colorholic! Color is pretty!

    3.) Do you have an angel or star on top of your tree? Angel

    4.) Do you have a nativity scene in your home? I have a ceramic nativity scene that I made myself! Didn't set it up this year. No safe spot to keep it out of the cats reach.

    5.) Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas gift? I did once. We received a wine and cheese gift box one year. We aren't big on wine so when I was coming up short on a gift for some neighbors I gave it to them.
