Hi, guys! I’ve seen quite a few Christmas tags like this going around and I love reading them, so I thought ‘hey, why not do one?” and here we are now! I wasn’t tagged by anyone and I’ve put together questions from a few different tags, nevertheless I hope you guys enjoy this. Let me know if you’ve done one of these tags or plan too!
1.) What is your favorite Christmas film?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. There isn’t a lot of Christmas movies that I like, but I really like this one. We watch it every year.
2.) Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I believe we have had a few when I was younger. With climate change, they haven’t happened in a while. Fingers crossed for this year!
3.) Hot chocolate or Egg Nog?
Egg Nog. I haven’t had it in a year or two but last time I did I remember liking it. Not the biggest hot chocolate fan, I’m really picky about how it’s made.
4.) Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home, with family. I don’t think we’ve ever traveled for it.
5.) What is your favorite Christmas song?
All I Want For Christmas is
Harry Styles You. I like pretty much all of them but that is definitely my favorite.
6.) Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
It depends. We opened all of them – or at least most – on Christmas Eve when I was a kid, and we go back and forth on when to open them, but I think this year and years going forward we will just open one or two on Christmas Eve and save the rest for Christmas.
7.) Does your family have a special holiday recipe that you make every year?
We have a few but my favorite is broccoli rice cheese casserole. It’s so good!
8.) Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Rudolph, Blixem, Comet, Vixen….. I tried.
9.) Do you make New Year’s resolutions?
No, I don’t. I believe more in yearly goals, having goals every day/moment, etc.
10.) What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Making peppermint bark, opening presents, buying presents, and we are starting a new one of going out to eat on Christmas Eve.
11.) Are you a late Christmas shopper or not?
I start shopping mid-November. I try to do most of it on Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
12.) When does your family put up your Christmas tree?
Black Friday. I put it up a little late this year because I had a cold, but it looks amazing!
13.) Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake, always fake. Real ones are so messy.
14.) Who decorates the Christmas tree?
My mom and I. I do most of it but my mom rearranges some parts where needed.
15.) White lights or colored lights?
Depends, but I like colored. They are so pretty.
16.) If you have pets, do they get into the Christmas tree?
My poodle, Ruby, is more scared of it than anything. Plus we have a small tree and put it on a table so it would be a bit difficult to get into.
17.) What tops your Christmas tree?
It’s a small tree so we don’t use a topper, but we have a star ornament with Santa on it that we put near the top.
18.) What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
Literally anything. I’m more into chocolate goodies than any other. I love peppermint bark, pies, cakes, brownies, macaroons… you name it.
19.) Do you like having your Christmas gifts kept as a surprise?
Yes. I want to know what they all but then I get disappointed when I find out because it ruins the surprise.
20.) Be honest: Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?
Giving. I love to buy gifts for others, and I’m pretty good at it if I say so myself.
21.) What is the best Christmas present you’ve received?
When I was younger I received Molly, the American Girl Doll. I wanted to get her soooo bad and I did! So I would have to say her.
22.) Have you ever peeked to see what your present was?
I do almost every year, it’s horrible. I need to stop.
23.) What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Somewhere warm. Actually, scratch that, New York. New York is lovely anytime but I bet it would be amazing for Christmas.
24.) Do you dress up for Christmas or do you stay in your pajamas?
Depends. Typically pajamas though.
25.) Are you a pro present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
If it’s in a box, I am a pro. If it’s not, it all goes to heck. I somehow convince myself it doesn’t need a box then I end up with a bunch of crinkled paper in a weird shape. I think I’ve done better this year though!
26.) Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?
Once. With a youth group and it was made out to be a big deal when in reality we did like two songs, sounded horrible, and it was just awkward.
27.) What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I don’t recall one moment, I just kind of knew.
28.) When do you start getting excited about Christmas?
Probably around Halloween. Then I get kind of crazy about it haha
29.) What makes Christmas special for you?
Giving gifts and spending time with family. I just love picking out gifts for people and it makes me really happy.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this! What makes Christmas special for you? Will you be doing this tag?
