THE CHRISTMAS TAG

17 QUESTIONS

Hello everyone! I hope the holiday season is treating you well so far. I’m absolutely loving it, but I can’t wait to be in Canada so I can experience another white christmas! It’s just a little too hot in Australia to feel as festive as I would in the snow, though I’m still enjoying every minute of it.

I recently stumbled across a Christmas tag, and knew I had to do it! I also wanted to share a snippet of my home with you, so I’ve decided to combine the two. The pictures in this post are a few bits of holiday decor scattered around my home. I’d love to see yours, too!

  1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
    Sooo hard to say! I would say it’s a toss up between The Nightmare Before Christmas, and The Grinch! Ooh, and Home Alone! It’s way too hard to choose just one.
  2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
    Oops. I guess I kind of ruined this with the intro to this post… but, yes, I have! Once, in 2015 when I first went to Canada. This year will be my second one!
  3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
    Usually at work/home, but for Christmas day it alternates between my mum’s house or one of my aunties’ houses.
  4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
    This is even harder than the movie question. I honestly don’t know how to choose. I love Santa Baby, It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas, All I Want For Christmas Is You… nope, there’s no point in me even trying to choose one or list my favourites – it would take all day!
  5. Do you open any presents on Christmas eve?
    Not anymore, but my sisters and I used to open one each on Christmas eve when we were kids – just couldn’t wait the half day more!

  1. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
    Oh god – really putting me on the spot here. Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Rudolph, Dancer, Blitzen… is that it? I feel like 7 reindeers sounds right and I can’t for the life of me think of any more… *Googles*. Aw, I forgot Cupid and Donner. I feel like I’ve never heard of a reindeer called Donner in my life. Where did he come from?!
  2. What Christmas traditions are you looking forward most to this year?
    I think my favourite tradition is spending New Years Eve driving around and looking at Christmas lights. My sisters and I used to do this with my dad before he passed away, and it’s one of my fondest memories, and I still do it every year with friends or my partner.
  3. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
    Fake – I’ve only ever had fake ones. I’ve always loved the idea of going to a cute Christmas tree farm and picking out a real one and taking it home, but it’s not really a thing here in Australia. I mean, there are Christmas tree farms, but they’re boring and nothing like the ones you see in UK and America!
  4. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweat treat?
    I don’t know if it counts, but eggnog! I absolutely love it, and it always makes me feel so Christmassy and happy! But, if we’re not including drinks, then I would probably say mince pies because they are delicious. Though I have to admit I’m just a little bit weird, and actually enjoy them more when they’re frozen, straight out of the freezer. Yum. Let me know if that’s the way you like them, too!

  1. Be honest: Do you like giving or receiving gifts more?
    100% honesty here – giving! I get sooo excited when choosing gifts for people, especially if I think I’ve nailed it, haha. I love watching people open them to see their face.
  2. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
    I honestly don’t know – I’ve loved every single thing I’ve ever gotten. I do remember getting a Furby as a kid, that was probably the most exciting thing ever for me back then, haha. Kind of find them creepy now. Mine was named “Da-looooo-lah”.
  3. What would your dream place to visit for the holiday season be?
    Edinburgh! From all the Christmas vlogs & blog posts I’ve seen, Edinburgh looks absolutely incredible at Christmas time – especially the markets! It’s my #1 place I want to visit, and I’m hoping I can be there for Christmas 2018.
  4. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
    I fail miserably, sadly. One time I thought it would be cute to wrap gifts in white tissue paper… my friend Justin told me it looked like fish & chips, and ended up wrapping them for me. Sigh.
  5. Most memorable holiday moment?
    Probably my first White Christmas in 2015! I just looove the snow.

  1. What made you realise the truth about Santa?
    … What truth?
  2. Favourite Christmas scent?
    Basically any Christmas Yankee Candle… Yum! I’ve got quite a few and they all smell ahmaaazing.
  3. What makes the holidays special for you?
    Basically, the lead up to Christmas is my favourite time of the year. It really brings a different atmosphere unlike any other month, and it makes me so happy and festive.

That’s The Christmas Tag over & done! I would love it if you also did this tag, and leave a link in the comments so I can pop on over and read yours!
