  1. I can't believe that you've said that Santa isn't real, you've shattered my dreams *sniffs and blows nose loudly* !!!

  2. So glad that you picked this up! I love all of your answers, most especially number 2! The Sound Of Music is one movie I absolutely, positively refuse to watch. Have a great week! Kathy (ps, if you hate the commercialization of Christmas and love to spend the holidays with family, you are definitely a Who, not a Grinch. Trust me on this!)

    Worried about your answer to question 20, the maids are fine but their 'pets' make a lot of mess
