Tag up to 12 bloggers.
Make up 10 questions for the other bloggers. (I'm just using the old ones also due to time constraints.)
1.) What is your favorite Christmas treat?
Wassail, the kind my aunt makes. It's made of four different juices and spiced and it's oh so good.
2.) How do you normally celebrate Christmas?
It's varied so much over the years, but I'll give a run down of how it's been the past couple years. I get up in the morning and I put the egg bake I prepared the night before in the oven for Christmas breakfast. Then my family and I eat that and tea for breakfast then we open presents. Then we drive to my aunt's house and open more presents. After that we have Christmas presents and hang out with family then my family and I see a movie.
|I saw Into the Woods last year and loved it.|
3.) Do you enjoy getting presents for your friends and family? Do you buy your gifts or go the homemade route?
I love it. ^ ^ I hand make some of my gifts and buy others. It depends on the person. I usually make the hand made gifts out of polymer clay. I'd post pics but I don't want to spoil the gifts I'm giving this year. ;)
4.) Is it cold where you live? Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I live in the Atlanta area of Georgia so it doesn't get extremely cold. I have had a white Christmas once in my hometown in 2011 and once in North Carolina when I was four.
5.) What’s on your Christmas list this year?
Mostly books. XD I'm trying to read some semi-recent bestsellers, so I can be more in the know in the literary world.
|I reallly want to read this book.|
6.) What’s your favorite Christmas song?
I like so many different ones, but to pick a favorite I really like SHeDAISY's version of the Deck the Halls. It takes me back.
7.) Are you an organised little elf or are you still shopping/preparing on Christmas Eve?
I've been an especially organized little elf this year and got all of my gifts ready last weekend. ^ ^
8.) How early do you start to get into the Christmas spirit?
After Thanksgiving. I can't stand when people try to skip over that holiday.
9.) What Christmas movies do you like to watch this time of year or what’s your favorite?
My favorite Christmas movie is the Santa Clause. It's my favorite version of Santa Claus.
10.) What’s the menu for Christmas Day?!
Usually it's ham and turkey and for the past couple of years I've been making egg bake for Christmas morning.
