The Christmas Tag

22 comments

 
I have pondered for quite some time on whether I should do this tag or not but since it's Christmas day tomorrow it seemed like a proper time to do it and I have to say this is one of the prettiest tags I've seen in quite awhile! My answers will be short and concise followed by some festive pictures of our own Christmas decorations at my home and I hope you enjoy this so let's start!
 

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Without any doubt - I have two of my favorites and both of them are rather sad but also very meaningful and I believe those are the kinds of films that bring out the best Christmas spirit in all of us. The first one is "Little Match Seller" by Hans Christian Andersen and I know it's a children's tale but I just can't explain enough how much this story means to me. I cry every time when I even start watching it and I think everyone should see it for at least once in their lifetime. The second film/tale is "A Christmas Carrol" by Charles Dickens and I'm very fond of the storytelling in that one, it's again a wonderful story full of emotions and rich in life-teaching lessons. 
 

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

It used to be morning while me and my brother were kids; but nowadays it's usually on the Christmas Eve when the whole family gathers and we share the presents among us. I won't lie, ever since I was a kid this was and still is, one of my favorite traditions and I love the looks on everyone's faces when they open the presents, especially when my little nieces do it :)

3. Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?

I do, actually, and it is a strange one indeed - when my parents bought me a Barbie house which I really wanted and I remember that it was rather expensive so I had no idea if I was gonna get it or not - but then when I found it under the tree I was so happy! Well, the memory is not about that, but about what comes afterwards! When we arranged the house, my cat, Phepher, went inside and took a nap in it and made a complete mess out of all the things I put inside the house, but he didn't care. Anyways it was really sweet to see him sleep like a baby in my pink house and I just continued to play with him by my side under the Christmas tree. I was quite happy then and I sometimes wish I could be a kid again for those moments alone.
 

4. Favourite festive food?

I couldn't pick one because there's so many good things I like to eat at this time but perhaps on Christmas day when my mom makes turkey with lots of side dishes, bean and french salad, that's the best and tastiest part of all food :)
 
5. Favorite Christmas gift?
 
One of my favorites was a Barbie - limited edition Swan Lake princess. I remember that I didn't even take it out of the box for some time and that's strange for me because I used to take them all out as soon as I got them. Also, a Furby toy, which I afterwards named my dog after. I think you all know what Furbys are, if you don't google them! Mine was silver-grey with pink belly and black dots :)

6. Favorite Christmas scent?

Apart from the scents of mom's cookies and cakes, I really love the smell of the "Welcome Home" Kringle candle wax. It smells like apples and cinnamon - like Christmas, like home :)

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

I don't have any apart from decorating the tree the day before Christmas and opening presents with my family in the evening. We then like to sit down and watch Christmas movies together and wait for Christmas to arrive. My favorite part is the tree and house decorating that I usually do with my mom and it's a weird combination of happy/nervous for me because like all moms, mine likes to panic a lot so we get into 10 fights before lunch, but it's all in good faith :D



8. What tops your tree?

A Christmas tree star, a gold, handmade one and I personally love it :)

9. As a kid, what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
 
I couldn't think of any. My parents spoiled me with gifts while I was a kid and there wasn't one thing that I truly wanted but never received. I'm lucky to say that I had everything I wanted and needed at the time :)

10. The best part about Christmas for you?

The best part is spending time with my family, the times when we're not arguing, but when we're happy and calm and enjoy the Christmas spirit and atmosphere together. Our festive dinners, lunches, buying and giving presents for and to each other, watching movies, baking cookies, decorating, talking, laughing - those are all the moments that hold a special place in my heart and that I will dearly remember even in old age. Times spent in good health and good will - those are the most important and happiest times of all!
