MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
Christmas has changed so much for me and my family over the years. When I was younger I was the typical child that enjoyed waking up in the morning and opening all my toys. Now as I’ve gotten older I’m more into sentimental gifts and spending time with my family. Christmas has never been about gifts, but in this society Christmas has turned into a manmade holiday. It’s about gifts galore and while gifts are nice the real meaning has been forgotten.
Looking back on Christmas past I’ve always wanted to do the infamous YouTube Christmas Tag so, let’s get to it.
1. Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?
Being that my family celebrates on Christmas Eve, I’m Team PJs for Christmas.
2. If you could buy one person a present this year who would it be?
Definitely my grandmother. I made her a calendar this year filled with old and new family photos.
3. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
For the past few years Christmas Eve.
4. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
Yup, a few years ago. Not the best work. Never ate it, but then again, aren’t they more for decorative purposes?
5. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
I’m not in undergrad anymore so I don’t have a Christmas break. When I did I liked having time to myself whether it be occasionally hanging with friends or binge watching TV. Oh, and of course, catching up on sleep.
6. Favorite meal or treat?
White hot chocolate with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
7. Favorite holiday movie?
Any version of A Christmas Carol.
8. Candy Canes or Gingerbread Men?
Sweet candy canes.
9. Have you made a snowman?
Yup. Lots of snow here in the tri-state area, although my snowman have never been real circles.
10. Which do you like better, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
The older I get I definitely enjoy Christmas Eve more. Christmas Day has turned into a day of napping and watching movies, which is fine, but Christmas Eve is filled with lots of family, great food, and laughs.
11. White lights or colored lights?
White lights for sure!
Today, December 25, 2015, I spent my Christmas staying up until 5am and then waking up at 9 to watch a few movies on Netflix. Although Netflix movies can be pretty corny and generic I ended up watching:
- Christmas Bounty
- The Fitzgerald Family Christmas
- 12 Dates of Christmas
I added to my planner and then took an epic Christmas nap. Now I plan to spend the rest of my evening with my boyfriend with hot cocoa and Christmas movies.
Merry Christmas to all and enjoy the ones you love! Enjoy some of my favorite Christmas tunes below:
