1 | Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until
the last minute?
I do my Christmas shopping in December but when I was living in the US I started on Black Friday. Nowadays I usually shop throughout December and sometimes I wait ’till the last minute
2 | If you could be in any Christmas movie what would
I can’t pick but I have 2 movies I really would have love to be in. My dad and I watched these two Christmas movies last night so they made me really happy. The first is Ernest Saves Christmas. My dad says I used to love that movie and while watching it I remembered watching it but I don’t remember some parts of it. It is definitely a funny movie and that would have made me happy. The second is Santa Paws 2. Its new but I loved it and i would have love to live in that town that loves Christmas so much and everyone is part of it.
3 | Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
My family really never celebrated Christmas Eve so I would have to say Christmas Day. I always wanted to do the big Christmas dinner but my family was so small that we didn’t get to do that. But i love waking up early on Christmas morning and opening presents with my mom and dad. We have our traditions on Christmas day so I still try to follow those!
4 | When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?
My dad gets our fake Christmas tree out of the attic after Thanksgiving but we set it up on December 1st. My mom and I would decorate the tree and i always enjoyed putting up our ornaments. We never had a theme tree though but we had all kinds of random ornaments that mean something to me.
5 | White lights or colored lights?
When i was growing up I always had colored lights. And I would have to say I love colored lights and they remind me more of Christmas than white lights. I like white lights but they are good throughout the year unlike colored lights are pretty for the holiday season.
6 | Are you guilty of peeking at your
presents or do you like the surprise?
I never peeked at my presents but i had an urge to all the time. I like waiting for the surprise and was always surprised by the gifts I got because i never got to peek at them.
7 | Would you rather live in a
gingerbread house or in Santa’s Workshop?
I really don’t know. I would love the gingerbread house but i might eat it all! I think i would have to pick Santa’s Workshop because I can help and hangout with the reindeer and the elves and that sounds like so much fun to me. And plus I can see all the toys being made and see how the magic works.
8 | Tell us your Christmas
My family really doesn’t have any traditions for Christmas Eve. But i will tell you about what we do on Christmas day. Well, I had to wait for my parents to wake up and get ready but I would go peek at the tree and see what is under it. When I woke up too early I would watch some Christmas cartoons until I hear my parents get up. When they were up, my dad would set up the camera and the video camera and then I could open my presents. There was only 3 of us so it went pretty fast and most gifts were mostly for me anyways. After that we would watch the Disneyland Christmas Parade and then I would play with my gifts and that’s it. When i got older we still did that but I would get gifts for my parents. Now we don’t really do that and I miss doing it.
9 | If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone
who would it be?
I don’t have a boyfriend or anyone in particular so when i do get a boyfriend I would want him under the mistletoe with me.
10 | What tops your tree?
When I was growing up we had a star that topped the tree every year. Now I top my tree with a giant bow. Since i don’t have that star anymore I didn’t really want a star so I put a giant bow in its place.
11 | Can you name the 12
days of Christmas?
No sadly I can’t but I can go through 1-5. The part I know best is 5 golden rings!
12 | Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?
Yes I have and it really isn’t that much fun but I did it and I can say that i did.
13 | Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days are left?
Yes, I love to countdown to things but when that date gets here then I’m not so happy about it. As I’m writing this we have 7 days which is a week from Christmas!
14 | What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday
Cookies! I love cookies and that is what i look forward to. There really isnt anything my mom cooks so I would say that cookies and brownies are the only things.
15 | How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you’ve grown older?
I think I lost the Christmas spirit ever since I moved countries. It isn’t the same anymore to me and nothing really gets me in the mood to celebrate anymore. I still love Christmas but not as much as I used to.
I hope you enjoyed my Holly Jolly Tag! I hope you do it too!
