Hello, Beauties! I can't believe that there are only 12 days until Christmas. It's crazy how fast time flies. I had amazing plans for some Christmas post here in the blog but they all disappeared down the chimney due to my moving into a new home. I wanted to make 12 Holiday related posts to count down the days until Christmas and today's I Love Christmas Tag was supposed to be the first one of them. I'll do my best to write at least 2-3 of the post that I planned but until then you can see why I love Christmas so much.
1. What is your favorite Christmas Color?
The classic combination of red and gold is definitely my go-to for Christmas decoration. I just love how these two colors pop up on the green tree.
2. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Oh, they are so many but I have two absolute favorite that are must see during the Holidays. The first one is Harry Potter - all eight of them. I know it’s not a typical Christmas movie but if you read 50 Random Facts About Me you know that I am a Potter fan, so it is a self-explanatory. The other one is the all time Christmas classic Home Alone. I watch this one every Christmas since I was a kid and I have no plans to stop any time soon.
3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Hm, that’s a thought one but if I have to choose only one it would be All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey.
4. The most anticipated Christmas Tradition?
Decorating the tree for sure. But I love them all, what can I say… I am a Christmas person!
5. Is your tree fake or real?
100% fake. No further discussions. :D
6. PJs of Fancy Dress for Christmas Eve?
PJs for Christmas Eve and fancy dress for the Christmas Day/Dinner.
7. When do you open your presents - on the Christmas Eve or the Christmas Morning?
Well, I always receive them early so I open them way before Christmas. But when I was a kid I opened my presents on the Christmas Morning and this is something that I’m aiming for. However with my zero self control, when it comes to presents I don’t see this happening.
8. Do you believe in Santa?
I always knew that the presents under the tree are bought by my parents. However I had a very interesting theory when I was a kid. I was convinced that Santa Claus is real but just because no one believes in him, he doesn't have enough magic to do his wonders. So, yes I still believe in Santa, because for me he is not just a gift giver who lives on the North Pole. For me Santa means love, kindness and hope. And those are things that I want to believe in!
9. What is your Christmas wish?
I wish that we can keep the Christmas spirit in our hearts throughout the whole year! Oh gosh, I know it's getting cheesy but don't blame me! Christmas took all over me!
10. Have you ever build a Gingerbread House?
No, but I always wanted. Maybe this year, will see.
11. What is your Dream Christmas Destination?
I bet you’ve seen the music video for the song Last Christmas by Wham. Well, I’ve always dreamed to spend a Christmas in a cabin like this, somewhere in the mountains with a lot of snow. Without the heartbreaking part of course...
12. Do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
Both. It brings me a lot of joy to see the happy faces of my loved ones, when they open the gifts which I picked with so much love. But let's keep it real, I really enjoy receiving gifts. I mean, who doesn't?
13. Can you name all of the Santa’s Reindeers?
Rudolph, Comet, Prancer and Blitzen… No, I can’t!
14. What is your favorite christmas meal or treat?
I don’t have anything in particular but I eat tons of chocolate and popcorns during the Holidays. Yummy-yummy!
15. Are you a pro-present wrapper or you fail miserably?
Well my friends, I am a qualified Pro-present wrapper. Few years ago (around Christmas) I was even working at online shop for toys and I was wrapping them as Christmas presents. It was literally like Santa’s workshop!
I am sending Christmas cheer to those Beauties and tag them to share with us what they love about the Holiday Season. Make sure to check their blogs because they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! And don't forget to share with me what do you love the most about Christmas in the comments below!
