Merry Christmas!Sunday, December 25, 2016
Merry Christmas!!! Pretty much like everyone else, Christmas is my favorite day of the year. It's just always so fun to wake up super early and excited. I love seeing the silhouettes of the presents under early Christmas morning. I'm seriously a kid at heart! Am I the only one sad that we have to wait a whole 365 days until Christmas? This year we celebrated Christmas a little different than normal. Every year, we tend to celebrate with all of my mom's side at a relative house. This year though, we celebrated with my grandparents on Christmas Eve. Then this morning, we went to Church, and opened up our presents. (fun fact, we mom would always sleep in, so we wouldn't open our presents until noon). Like I said, this year, we opened our presents up earlier than normal, I would say at about 10:30. (If you'd be interested in a "What I got For Christmas Post, let me know in the comments). Now, we're just having a chill day. I lowkey want to change into pajama pants right now. And tomorrow we're leaving for a mini vacation. So fyi, if my content is lacking this week, that's why. Even though Christmas is over (tear!) I still will be posting holiday/fesitive looking posts because why not......!? The trees and lights are just too cute not to post. Oh and be prepared for my instagram to be rocking in festive pictures. I'm one of those people that takes their feed very seriously. So since I had wayyyy too many fall pictures I wanted to post, I'm now just getting to post my holiday ones. Anyways, I was tagged by LoveYesi to do the Christmas tag. And of course I had to do it!
1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS FILM?
Hands down, Home Alone 1 & 2. My boyfriend even said I had an obsession with the movie. It's true though. My dad and I watched these two movies 5 times in the past week....yep you read that right! I think I worn out those movies this season.
2. HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
Absolutely! I live in the midwest, so if there's no snow on the ground, then it depresses me
3. WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND THE HOLIDAY?
Like I mentioned, I normally spend it with my mom's entire side of the family. Usually every family member takes a turn to host it at their house. This year though, we kind of just did our own thing
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
Okay, can I just start off by saying that I'm sad that all the Christmas songs are going to end. But in all reality, Idk if I can pick a favorite. This year it's a tie between "All Alone on Christmas" and "It's beginning to Look alot like Christmas". Oh and I'm obsessed with anything by Michael Buble.
5. DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
We didn't used to, but I kind of made my mom start a new tradition. About 4-5 years ago, I made my mom start buying our family pajama pants for Christmas Eve. I'm pretty sure me and my mom are the only ones that enjoy that though
6. CAN YOU NAME ALL OF SANTA'S REINDEER?
Of course! Who can't!?
7. IS YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE REAL OR FAKE?
My mom is a little obsessed with decorating. She's gotten better though at putting out less. Years ago we would have no joke, 7 trees. Only three of those would be full size trees though; the rest would be half trees. To answer the question though, We normally get a real tree and the rest are fake. I personally love a real tree because of the aroma. I can't wait though when the day comes that I move out and get to plan the "theme" of my own tree.
8. WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE CHRISTMAS FOOD/TREAT?
I can't say that I have a favorite. I do really like when my aunt makes the hershey kiss cookies and peanut butter haystacks
9. BE HONEST, DO YOU LIKE GIVING GIFTS OR RECEIVING GIFTS?
I can't lie, I do like all the anticipation of what's inside. I definitely am a kid. This was the first year I actually bought presents on my own. Normally I go with my parents and help them pick out presents. But honestly this was ten times more fun. I couldn't wait to see everyone's reaction. I wanted my family to open their gifts as soon as I bought them lol. This year, I'm a terrible sister and decided to wrap boxes inside boxes for my one brother. He has yet to open it, and I can't wait any longer lol
10.WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?
I've been two NYC twice, but neither times during the Christmas time. I would love to visit Central Park and the Plaza while it's snowing. Can you guess why.....yep Home Alone. But in all seriousness, it would take breathtaking photos
11. ARE YOU A PRO PRESENT WRAPPER, OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY?
I would definitely say I'm average. They're not terrible, but I do not have the crispest lines around the corners. I adore those perfectly wrapped presents with the perfect bows.
Hope you guys enjoyed this fun post. Like I said, more fesitive posts will be coming because I can't bare to let Christmas end this soon.
