With Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to come up with some Christmas-y themed questions to answer. Feel free to copy the questions and answer them yourselves or just pick a few to answer in the comments :)
What's your favorite Christmas cartoon?
Frosty the Snowman. The Grinch is a close second though.
What's your favorite Christmas movie?
My favorites are Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Jingle All the Way, Home Alone 2, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Love Actually.
What's your favorite Christmas song?
Love "O Holy Night". It's probably my favorite Christmas song out of all of them. I also like "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney and "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" by N'Sync.
Where do you spend Christmas?
I always go back to my hometown to visit my family at Christmas. This year though I think I might be spending Christmas Day with my husband's family. He only lives a couple hours away from me, so I'll still be able to see my family on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas.
Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
We open one present on Christmas Eve and then the rest of them on Christmas morning. We usually try to go around and have everyone open one present at a time, but that never ends up working. Us "kids" get impatient and we just start ripping boxes open!
Do you have stockings?
Stockings are a huge deal at my house. Everyone has one. Even the pets and spouses/significant others. They're usually just full of candy/small gifts/gift cards, but for some reason, it's almost more fun opening them than it is the presents.
Which reindeer is your favorite?
Dancer and Vixen are my favorites.
How are you at wrapping presents?
I'm decent, but definitely could never work at one of those stands in the mall where they wrap gifts for free. I usually try and get my mom to wrap all of my gifts because she's really good at it :)
Do you go out shopping the day after Christmas?
My family lives in a small town in the Midwest, so sadly, there's really no place to go shopping other than Target :/ I do usually go there though to get the good candy deals.
Do you buy a Christmas dress/outfit every year?
Growing up, I never wore skirts or dresses because I was a big tomboy. I would just wear my one pair of nice black pants with a nice top to church on Christmas Eve. I've actually never bought a Christmas dress/outfit for myself since I moved out on my own. Sadly, I never get to go to any fancy holiday parties. I could wear one to church on Christmas Eve, but I'm afraid to fly with my nicer clothes. Who knows where they'll end up!
Hot Chocolate, Apple Cider, or Egg Nog?
Hot chocolate. I've never tried Egg Nog, but really have no desire to.
Gingerbread man or frosted sugar cookie?
I like both, but I'd go for the frosted sugar cookie first just because I love all the fun shapes and the colorful icing.
Real tree or fake tree?
Growing up, we always had a fake tree because we had cats who would make a mess in the water and get pine needles everywhere. My husband and I have a small fake tree now and I'm guessing we'll probably always have a fake tree. They're not messy, cheaper in the long run, and I personally think they look better.
Put up your own lights or drive around and look at other people's lights?
Definitely drive around and look at other people's lights. That's probably one of my favorite things to do this time of year. I love seeing what people come up with and listening to Christmas music for hours.
