I saw this tag on Destiny’s blog and I immediately wanted to answer it. If you didn’t know, Christmas is my favorite time of the year, it always has been, so I’m SUPER excited about anything Christmas-related.
I wasn’t tagged to do this tag, but if you’d like to do it, please consider yourself tagged by me 🙂 Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Let’s get started…
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE?
It’s a tie between Elf and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. However, the movies I usually watch during the Christmas season are actually the Harry Potter movies 😀
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey and Hark! the Herald Angels Sing by Pentatonix are my favorites at the moment. I will post a Christmas playlist soon, and you’ll be able to see all of my top Christmas songs <3
DO YOU OPEN PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE OR CHRISTMAS MORNING?
Christmas Eve. In Portugal, Christmas is basically dinner with the family on the 24th, and then everyone stays up ’till midnight, which is when you open the presents. And there’s the family lunch on the 25th, of course.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SCENT?
Anything with cinnamon in it. I actually just got an apple-cinnamon candle from IKEA and I have been inhaling it for two days. It smells like heaven to me haha
WHAT TOPS YOUR TREE?
It’s always an angel
IS YOUR TREE FAKE OR REAL?
Fake. Real Christmas trees are not really a thing in Portugal haha why would you kill a tree to keep in your house for like a month and then get rid of it??? I’ve always found that quite odd
HAVE YOU EVER GONE CHRISTMAS CAROLING?
No, thank God lol I cannot sing for the life of me!
WHITE OR COLORED LIGHTS?
I like both, but our tree has white lights at the moment
EGGNOG OR HOT CHOCOLATE?
Neither. I don’t like hot chocolate (way too much chocolate) and I’ve never tried eggnog but it looks gross (no offense lol). I prefer a cup of hot milk with a couple spoons of Nesquik or just a nice cup of tea.
ARE YOU A ‘BUDDY THE ELF’ OR AN ‘EBENEZER SCROOGE’?
I am 100% a Buddy. I have enough excitement about Christmas for the whole family, honestly. I’m constantly baking while blasting Christmas music and thinking about the presents I’m getting for everyone. It’s a fun time 😀
WHEN DO YOU PUT UP YOUR TREE/DECORATIONS?
Usually at the beginning of November. And we leave them up until the 6th of January, which is the traditional date. Fun fact: our neighbors (the Spanish) open their Christmas presents on January 6th, the day of the Reyes Magos (the Three Magi)
IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
I would probably take my whole family to Switzerland so we could stay at a chalet and experience a Christmas with snow. It doesn’t snow in Lisbon, unfortunately (or fortunately, you decide haha)
DO YOU MAKE NEW YEARS’ RESOLUTIONS?
Definitely! I like to set goals and resolutions for everything. In fact, I made a post all about my bookish goals for 2018, so feel free to check that out.
That’s all for today’s tag! I really hope you guys enjoyed it. Merry Christmas, and happy holidays!
Thank you for reading,
I’ll see you in my next post ♡
