Well according to this article, I am equal water, fire and earth. I love decorating the tree(its great fun and so pretty when done), I love baking holiday cookies and sharing them with others and I really enjoy The Christmas Carol(the original version with Albert Finney as Scrooge-not Disney). Who doesn't get tearied eyed when seeing Tiny Tim's cane standing by the fire place alone(Tiny Tim has passed away). And overjoyed when Scrooge becomes a renewed man!
