The Christmas Tag



I stumbled across this tag on one of my favourite blogs- MakeupSaavy. It is originally form the Milk Bubble Tea Blog. It's such a fun way to share my early Christmas excitement.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?

The Santa Claus, Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, and The Holiday.


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

All of them on Christmas morning. Chris and I are thinking of starting a tradition of giving all the kids new Christmas PJ's on Christmas Eve, but other than that, my family doesn't do any gifts before then.


3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

Getting to wear brand new Christmas dresses every year. It's funny because every year now I get to see my girls have the same feeling I had. It's so special to see how happy a glittery new dress can make a little girl.


4. Favourite festive food?

How can I even decide this? I think I'll go with gingerbread cookies...or pretty much any cookie.


5. Favourite Christmas gift?

A vintage Avon spoon ring from my grandma. I used to have the ring but it broke in half and I lost it. A few years ago she found the exact same ring and gifted it to me. I cried.


6. Favourite Christmas scent?

The smell of sugar cookies. I can only describe it as warm, sweet vanilla. It makes me want to curl up in a ball, eat my face off, and never leave my couch.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Eating finger foods and watching movies. Keeping it simple with immediate family.


8. What tops your tree?


A beautiful golden and glittery star. Chris and I actually argued about this the first few years we were together- he prefers a santa but I think a star is much more traditional (and makes a lot more sense).


9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?


I actually remember asking for an Iguana for like 3 years straight. I'm really glad my parents never fed into this because I actually hate taking care of animals. I can only imagine what kind of mess an Iguana would have been.


10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?

The sights and sounds. I absolutely love how "big" the Christmas season is. I feel like in comparison, every other holiday is kind of half done. Christmas is so over the top. Everywhere you go there are decorations and music and activities. It's the least dull time of year.

Beyond that, being a mom at Christmas time is the coolest thing I've ever experienced. I definitely don't get the gifts I used to seeing as everyone buys for my kids instead, but it's the best feeling to see how happy the holiday season makes little kids.
