Hey everyone, as you guys know I have been crazy busy the last few weeks and sadly my blog was a bit neglected during that time – do not fear I have a TON of nail polish & makeup posts coming up over the holiday break but for now I have a really fun tag to share with you. My beautiful friend, Holly aka MissHollyBerries just posted this tag on her blog – please read her answers HERE and she tagged me to do the Holly Jolly Holiday Tag as well – I love her answers so be sure to check out her blog! Lets begin:
1. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last minute?
I kinda do my Christmas shopping at odd times and it really depends on my mood. There have been years when I did it as early as September and other times literally the week of Christmas. And I have NEVER been Black Friday shopping – one of my greatest pet peeves is being a crowded environment. I just can not stand the pushy, noisy, sweaty atmosphere of Black Friday – Thank goodness for Cyber Monday! LOL
2. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be?
Yes, I am saying it – Home Alone 1 & 2!! haha – I just love that movie! And I imagine it would be good fun creating all those house traps for the thieves.
3. Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
As a kid, I loved Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day because it meant it was still `Christmas` – when Christmas day rolled around the fun atmosphere just seemed to wither away by evening time. So I will have to say Christmas Eve – although my entire family usually comes together on Christmas Day, which means LOTS of food and damn good time, however I always liked the anticipation of Christmas on Christmas Eve.
4. When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?
This is one of the few years I will not be putting up a Christmas tree – just based on exhaustion. I have been so busy with life and have been limited on time for so many things I just want to relax and enjoy my vacation this year. When I do put up the Christmas tree, I typically decorate it myself and I do all kinda of craziness to it, lets just say, it`s NEVER a `typical` Christmas tree. lol.
5. White lights or colored lights?
Every colour under the rainbow, the more the merrier!
6. Are you guilty of peeking at your presents or do you like the surprise?
Okay so I don`t like surprises but I like surprising others with their gifts. Being completely honest, I am kinda hard to shop for because I like such specific things and it never makes sense to other people so they never usually know what to get for me.
7. Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or in Santa’s Workshop?
I am going to surprise you and say gingerbread house – I can eat cookies while passing the time haha! Hell, i can even eat the house as well!
8. Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions!
This is entirely on my mood – there have been years when I have really be into celebrating and other years I just want to have something low key just my nuclear family. But usually there is always a huge family event at someone`s house and it`s a massive good time!
9. If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone who would it be?
haha!! this is a great question – I will go with a celebrity crush in the spirit of Christmas – so lets see…..so there is a list! lol but I have always had the biggest crush on Dwayne Johnson,, yes aka The Rock from WWE!!! =)
10. What tops your tree?
When I do have a tree, I like a massive star.
11. Can you name the 12 days of Christmas?
Nope, not at all!! I have always been a poser when people start singing the 12 days of Christmas, I`m the one in the background usually humming to the tune – cause I don`t know a damn word of it! haha!
12. Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?
I was in a choir during middle school & high school as well (Holly – we are so alike it is freaky!!!) and we went to a few nursing homes, shelters etc to sing but other than that, not in my adult life.
13. Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days are left?
When I was younger but now, not really …..9 days till Christmas!! holy damn, time goes by fast!
14. What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday season?
If you are Trinidadian, sorrel is the BEST Christmas drink….my mouth is drooling just thinking of it! Other than that, nothing special really….just a LOT of Trinidadian food!
15. How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you’ve grown older?
I love Christmas because it means people are usually in a good mood – after Christmas, I swear to you people return to their original grumpy state. But as I have gotten older I love Christmas even more because I get to spend it with my nieces whom I love more than life itself!! They make it worth while for sure!
