Hey all! I was in the mood to do a tag today, and I haven't done one in a really long time, so I thought that I would just hop on google and look for a fun one. Then I found the 2013 Christmas Tag, and I thought that that would be a festive one to post right after Thanksgiving so here we go!
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I personally love the look of real trees, so that's definitely what I'm partial to, but in my house we've only used a small synthetic one. I kind of hate the smell of evergreen trees, though. I still really wish that we used one.
2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
I don't actually like coffee, but I still buy fun coffee drinks at Starbucks and the local coffee shop anyway. I try to get different things every time, I go, though.
3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I like have a few things that I like. I'm probably most partial to have red and gold, but silver and midnight blue are gorgeous. I just love sparkly things, too. We always go with our old things that we've collected throughout the years, so we always do random things.
4. Giving or receiving?
I don't have any money, so I can't really get extravagant gifts, but I love putting them together. Getting the wrapping paper, doing the card, making the packaging special, because my mom always treats it like a chore. I always give my parents presents and write that they're from Santa. It's fun. Of course, I love getting things, but you just feel so much more festive when you're making presents.
5. To mince pie or not to?
My dad loves mince meat pie, but I've never layed a finger on it. In all honesty, I don't really like pie...I guess I just like really desert-y pies like chocolate. Mmm, chocolate.
6. What's your traditional sunday lunch?
Er, we don't have one. My family actually isn't Christian, so we don't do anything like that. Not to say that we just do Christmas for the gifts, because my mom was raised Christian, but it's more just a family thing for the day than making anything out of Sunday.
7. Christmas day fashion
I always wear my pajamas at home, but then when all the family gets together, I wear something nice but with all Christmas colors.
8. What's your favourite Christmas song?
Well, I'm in choir, and we have a long Christmas set that we sing a million times throughout the year and our collective favorite song is White Christmas. I really like that one. Other than that, I don't really know. Of course, I love the emotional ones like Christmas Shoes and Santa Bring my Soldier Home. (don't actually know if that's the real name, but I love that one.)
9. What's your favourite Christmas film?
I actually haven't watched hardly any Christmas films! I don't have one! Tell me your favorite one and I'll watch it.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
Before. I'm the one that carries the holiday tradition in my house, so I wake up early and make breakfast for everyone and after breakfast we open all the presents. Then we go to someone's house and all the family exchanges the last of the gifts.
I tag everyone, since I wasn't officially tagged anyway...Enjoy and get festive!
