So I found this Christmas tag going around, and I wanted to take a stab at it! Tags are a lot of fun and I especially love the ones about the holidays because people share some really cool stories and traditions!
What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
I’ve never really been a big fan of Christmas movies, but there’s one I have to watch every year- the Santa Clause series!
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
A lot as a kid, but it hasn’t been as often anymore. It seems to snow right before and right after Christmas, leaving the the ground as slush on Christmas Day.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Normally at home. We prefer to open gifts and relax for the rest of the day.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
Rocking Around the Christmas Tree for sure! That song gets stuck in my head year round!
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Some years we get a little impatient. We’ve actually opened all our gifts on Christmas Eve Night before. It’s definitely not as fun as waiting until morning.
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
I just tried and it went terribly wrong.
What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
We don’t really have too many traditions anymore.
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
What is your favorite holiday treat/food/sweet?
Gingerbread men! I have big heart eyes for them!
Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
I think it would have to be my first cell phone. I think I was 9 when I got it. We finished opening presents and one of the boxes started ringing. I was so confused!
What is your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I would LOVE to go to Texas. I’m not sure why, but that’s the dream.
Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
Oh I am the worse wrapper ever! I always end up getting my fingers taped in there somehow!
Most memorable Christmas memory?
Ok this one is a little funny. A few years ago, my parents made the joke that they bought me a toilet for Christmas. Why? I don’t know. But they got a toilet box, filled it with weights, and threw some containers of chocolate frosting in there (my favorite). So this whole time I was thinking I was unwrapping a toilet (again…. why?) but I was actually unwrapping chocolate frosting!
What made you realize the truth about Santa?
When I was little, I thought I was a sneaky little thing. My parents told me Santa had a universal key that unlocked the doors that didn’t have chimneys. So that means Santa has to touch the door knob, right? Well, before bed, I snuck some chocolate pudding all over the door knob. Then, in the morning I checked to see if Santa left any finger prints in the pudding. I didn’t see any. That was enough evidence (or lack thereof) for me to stop believing.
What makes the holidays special for you?
I genuinely love the quality time with my family. There’s nothing better than the laughs we share on Christmas morning!
