Merry Christmas! Today is the last official day of Blogmas I think, even though I will be here until the new year, so for that, I wanted to do something that I do every year and that is fill out the Christmas tag. I know, it’s probably a little bit repetitive but I think this is either the third or fourth year that I’ve done it so it feels weird not to, plus maybe my answers will be a little different? Who knows, let’s just dig in and see how it goes.
Favorite Christmas treat?
Right now I would say it’s either cookies, cheese or cinnamon rolls. I love cookies, I have made a handful this past week or so as well, but we’ve also been really into ‘fancy’ cheese and that’s fun. Also, I make homemade cinnamon rolls every year and those are just amazing. Basically, I am saying that I really love to eat.
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Elf, I’m not sure if this will ever change. I do love lots of others but this is hands down my favorite.
Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Always Christmas morning, it seems odd to open them on Christmas Eve, except for maybe one or two.
Do you open stockings first or presents?
Stockings go first if you ask me, I love stockings too and am so excited about them always, even though it’s mostly a ton of candy and chocolate.
Favorite winter beverage?
I really love hot chocolate and chai tea lattes, they are both fantastic and I refuse to pick sides.
Favorite Christmas smell?
Things being baked, cookies and bread, I love them both and those are the best scents in the world if you ask me.
Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
I have not, I really want to and think that I will next year when we are in our house.
Favorite holiday makeup trend?
How much sparkle you can wear this time of the year without seeming strange, I just love that. All the glitter this time of the year and it’s amazing!
When do you put up your tree?
My family usually does sometime between Thanksgiving Day and the weekend after, so clearly we have a fake Christmas tree.
Colorful or white lights?
I like both, it really depends on when you catch me, right now I would say colorful lights though.
Favorite holiday food?
I love to eat and I love most of the holiday food so this is a hard one for me, I know I said some things above already but let me add to that list and say that I love all things potatoes, mashed and sweet mostly.
Real or fake Christmas tree?
We have a fake Christmas tree and while I don’t think it looks anywhere near as good it is a lot less maintenance.
Do you use advent calendars?
We have the cutest gingerbread house the has little doors in it and I love it, I didn’t break it out this year because we are staying with my inlaws and will be moving fairly shortly, so I did miss out on that this year,
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Being from Florida I don’t think it is surprising to say that I have no, but since relocating to Virginia I really would love to have one.
Are you a pro wrapper or terrible?
I am an okay wrapper at best, my husband thinks I’m terrible at it but I think I do mostly alright, but I am no pro by any means.
What place would you love to visit at Christmas?
Maybe it’s because I’m from Florida or that I hate the winter but I would really love to visit a nice beautiful and warm beach for the Christmas, or sometime around Christmas. This seems like the perfect time for a vacation.
Have you ever made a snowman?
I mad a very tiny one oonce, have not attempted to make a larger one yet but maybe I will in the future.
When do you start listening to Christmas music?
Thanksgiving Day is when I start listening to Christmas music, then it gets tucked away as soon as Christmas is over and I wait until the following year to listen to anymore.
And that is the Christmas tag, I tag anyone who wants to do it, I know it’s a little last minute but you could pop it up today if you wanted or wait until next year, I would love to read everyone’s answers.
