The Christmas Tag

First & foremost, I would like to take the time to wish everyone reading this a very Merry Christmas! I hope you're all still stuffed and filled with joy from your Christmas festivities. I've seen this tag floating around a lot throughout this month and thought Christmas Day would be the perfect time to put it up (even though I'll probably posting it a day late) - so here we go!

O1. What is your favourite christmas movie?
Believe it or not, I'm actually not the biggest fan of Christmas movies. Unlike everyone else, I'm not the type to watch the same movies every year. But if I had to pick one, I'd say Elf. That one was really funny. 

O2. Do you open your presents on christmas eve or christmas morning?
Every year on Christmas eve, my family gets together to celebrate and we always wait until 12am to open all the presents. We've been doing this for as long as I can remember and, along with doing Secret Santa each year, it's one of my favourite Christmas traditions. 

O3. Do you like to stay in your pjs or dress up?
I don't go to many parties, or get to dress up often, so I stay away from the pjs during Christmas. Although I may have broken that rule last year when I dressed up in an elf onesie. 

O4. If you could buy one person a present this year, who would it be?
Obviously, my daughter. I know how exciting it is to open presents as a kid, so I always look forward to spoiling her. This year, I got her the top two things on her wishlist. I'm really excited to see her reaction after she opens them up. 

O5. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
Last week, my answer would have been 'no'. But now I can proudly say that I have built one! My daughter and I made one a few days ago (though it was mostly me putting it all together while she ate the candy decoration). It takes time and patience, but it's still really fun. And taking in the whole house after you've finished, such a satisfying feeling. I definitely would do it again. 

O6. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
Prior to this year, I spent my Christmas breaks in the comfort of my own home, which is my preferred way to spend it. This year I've been working a ton, which explains the lack of blog posts lately.. (I'm sorry!)

O7. Any Christmas wishes?
My Christmas wish is for my family, friends, readers, supporters, etc. to all have a happy, healthy, and memorable time. 

O8. What tops your tree?
My Christmas tree is literally the same every single year (not complaining), so a star always sits at the top of my tree. I do recall an angel topping my tree at one point in time, but for this year, the same lit up star made it's appearance up there. 

O9. Candy canes or gingerbread man?
Definitely candy canes. I love anything minty, so of course I had to pick that. Plus, gingerbread isn't even that good (in my opinion). 

1O. What is at the top of your Christmas list?
With most of my time being dedicated to work, I actually haven't even thought about what I wanted for Christmas. Now that I think about it though, I would really appreciate a new winter jacket to keep me warm from this harsh coldness.
