I was reading “Life Without Anorexia” one of my favorite blogs about recovery (& much more) and saw she did this “Christmas Tag”.
I’ve been looking for some fun surveys to complete on my blog, and since this one is Christmas it doesn’t have too many too personal questions!
And it’s CHRISTMAS! 😀
And as she said, I tag anyone reading: “If you want to join in on your blog comment below and let me know so I can read your posts :)”
1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
My favorite Christmas film is probably Home Alone 2. It was super fun staying up late to watch it on TV with BT last year since we didn’t have our copy with us. We eagerly read the commentary that popped up, which provided a new twist on a film we knew so well. It was hard to read, though, because we had a smaller screen than most channels expect!
We finally gave up as we realized the commercial breaks got longer and longer until they were just as long as the segment of film shown!
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
A bit of both. Whatever we feel like now. 🙂 We used to have traditions or whatever, now it’s whatever we feel like doing!
3. Do you like to stay in your PJs on Christmas Day or dress up?
I like staying in my PJ’s because it’s all like, chill, and familiar. However, I usually try to take the chance to dress up at some point! Though I usually look at it more as costuming than glamming, as I go for trying to incorporate lots of Christmas themes and colors.
4. If you could only buy one person a present this year, who would it be?
I saw that Kendel and Izzy both said their Mom, and that would probably be the case for me, too.
Actually, this year, I think I would go for this one family friend who almost always sends us Christmas presents, and birthday presents, and random presents, but I don’t always know what to get her. I determined to work on it early and get her a Christmas present this year! Plus, she’s a mom, so she could use some special appreciation!
I don’t think Mom would mind. 🙂 But most years, yes, my answer would be Mom!
5. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
Yupperdoodles! We started that tradition, and it has been funny! Like we always do this traditional stuff, and it’s all “look at us, we are actually doing something typical!” and then when we get working on it, it always has our own peculiar flair on it! One year Mom decorated one side of the roof, and BT the other, and the contrast was so stark, but both were so lovely! We used mustard to color our frosting… We had leftovers so I made a table and chairs, which actually worked! :0… a little while later I got a text from Mom saying, “I got so hungry I ate a table leg!.. A gingerbread table leg, that is!”
It’s so fun to work on this together and have something so different come out of us each year.
6. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
If I have a job at Christmas time, I work. Which was really fun. The business wasn’t open, it just still needed maintaing, so me and a friend got to work together on the holiday!
If I don’t work, then I just hang out and do whatever my family does! We might have a fire, bake special stuff, do some kind of outdoor activity.
7. Any Christmas wishes?
I wish that Forever would get a Season 2!
I wish that my family would have a wonderful year!
8. Favourite Christmas food?
At thanksgiving, we were introduced to Spanish candies, and I really like this one that is like shortbread with almonds and other stuff. And before you eat it you can squeeze it in the wrapper to make it more compact. It’s so cool.
My favorites at Christmas time are the new candies and stuff – like chocolate covered this and that.
I also like homemade gingerbread, our gingerbread house, pumpkin pie, and specialty covered (hard) pretzels.
9. Candy cane or gingerbread man?
Probably gingerbread men…
10. What is at the top of your Christmas list?
There are a few things I’ve been wanting to buy throughout the year – like a GMM hoodie, or a music player. But, nothing I’m wanting any more than usual. I don’t like giving people or even thinking I have a wish list because then I think they’ll try and buy it for me even if it’s not good for them to do. (But, yet I’m always compiling a mental wishlist. 🙂 )
I’ve always secretly dreamed of getting an animal whenever there’s a time presents are exchanged (which seems like such a foolish dream to me!) I’d also like time with family, and Pentatonix CDs. 🙂
Do you have any Christmas traditions?
What’s on your wishlist?
Any question from above?
