Blogmas: The Christmas Tag

Blog tags: where you answer questions and compare to fellow bloggers! Let’s get seasonal with the Christmas Tag:

What is your favorite Christmas movie(s)?

My all-time favorite is Christmas Vacation, but I made a list of honorable mentions in this post!

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

At home with my family. This is the first time I’ll be away from home on Christmas Day!

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

I would love to visiting New York city on New Year’s Eve… but I don’t mess with the cold, so I’m going to Egypt this year!

Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Christmas morning from family, whenever we can meet up from friends and special friends.

Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?

All the Christmas mornings spent with my family, watching Christmas movies in my pajamas while my brothers spread out all their new Lego sets.

Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

Giving gifts! I know it’s not a competition, but if it were, I’d win.

Favorite festive food?

Not particularly “festive,” but I loved the sassy sausage dip and magic cookies bars we used to make for our Christmas Eve party.

Favorite Christmas gift?

I remember being over the moon when I got a Nintendo D.S. Lite from my grandpa when I was younger! That little machine was awesome.

Favorite Christmas scent?

The smell of a real tree!

Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Open house party, sing happy birthday to Jesus, eat my body weight in appetizers and cookies and retreat to my room at 8PM. You can read more about my Christmas traditions in my previous Blogmas post.

What tops your tree?

A star on our real tree and an angel on our fake tree.

Have you ever had a White Christmas?

No! Hopefully one day. I will be very shocked if I have one this year in the middle of the Red Sea…

What is your favorite Christmas song?

O Holy Night, Emmanuel and of course, Dick In a Box (sorry for the shoddy quality, SNL are anal about not having their sketches on YouTube)

Is your Christmas tree fake or real?

One real, one fake.

Are you a professional present wrapper or do you fail miserably? 

I can only wrap things that are perfectly rectangular, otherwise it goes in a bag with stuffing tissue. I make the wrapping work for me.

What makes the holidays special for you?

Spending time with my family and friends doing awesome activities we normally wouldn’t do in the spirit of the season. I also love finding the perfect gift for all my loved ones!
