Today I am bringing you The Christmas Tag for Blogmas! I hope you enjoy reading about my holiday traditions and memories. Answer a few (or all!) of the questions in the comments or post it on your blog and tag me so I can read your answers.
Use one noise to describe how excited you are for Christmas.
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Only whatever I get at my Mimi’s house
What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Gingerbread houses with family, watching Christmas movies, going to look at Christmas lights with friends, and all the food!
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
What is your favorite Christmas film?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Christmas Eve is spent at my cousin’s house for Christmas brunch, church, and my Mimi’s house. Sometimes we also swing by a gathering for my husband’s family. Christmas day is spent at my parents’ house, my in-laws’ house, and my aunt’s house. We make about six-seven stops in two days. It is insane.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
Carol of the Bells by Transiberian Orchestra
What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
I can honestly say I don’t have one. I always looks forward to my grandfather’s cheeseball. And I think Christmas brunch is my favorite meal out of the two days of constant eating.
Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
I love receiving gifts, but I honestly like giving gifts even more.
What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
The two week vacation LOL Idk there’s a certain feeling I get at Christmas that I wish I could bottle up and use year-round.
When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
November 1. This year I was updating my Christmas playlist on Halloween night.
What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
I really love the UGG boots my parents bought me like four or five years ago.
What is the worst present you’ve ever received?
Probably every Dirty Santa gift EVER. I never come home with a good gift.
As a kid, did a sibling ever receive a present that you wished was for you?
I’m an only child, but I had cousins. And yes, sometimes I wished their gift was for me!
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
London or New York at Christmas time is on my bucket list. I think one time would be enough though.
Most memorable holiday moment?
It happened three days after Christmas, but I gotta say getting engaged was the best moment of any holiday in my life.
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Do you stick to them?
Last year I set a goal, not a New Year’s resolution. The goal was to read one book a month, and I surpassed the goal!
What makes the holidays special for you?
Spending time with my family and enjoying all the little traditions.
What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
The two weeks off from work. #sorrynotsorry
You have been granted one Christmas wish…what will it be?
Financial security for life so my husband and I could travel.
