Yesterday I saw many of you do the Christmas Tag and thought: What a great idea…I wanna do it too!!!
I gathered all the questions together and decided to do the TAG today. The day after Christmas is usually a lot more relaxed … so I thought it would be the perfect time to just sit down with a cup of Coconut Green Tea and write this post for you guys!
2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I live in The Netherlands… I have had lots of white Christmases. This year I haven’t seen a single snowflake.
This morning they said on the news that it’s going to be snowing next week…but really?! THAT’S A WEEK TOO LATE!
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
When my mommy was still alive I used to celebrate Christmas at her place. Now that she’s not with me anymore I always spend the holidays with my best friend and her daughter, who I consider my sister and niece. We just hang out, watch Christmas movies and EAT…All day long! LoL
4. Whats your favorite Christmas song?
5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Both….usually we open one or two on Christmas Eve…and the rest on Christmas Day.
6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Thanks to Usher and Nicki Minaj (song: “Lil’ Freak) I can name them in one breath: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Dixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen…and of course our beloved RUDOLPH.
7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
One word … EATING!!!!!
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
I’m allergic to pine trees so mine is … FAKE.
9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
Surinamese patties. It’s puff pasty filled with carrots, peas and chicken. DE-LI-CIOUS!!!!
10. Be honest: giving or receiving gifts better?
Since I’m a shopaholic i LOVE to buy gifts. I’m also the type of person who puts a lot of thought into the gifts that i buy. Al year long i pay attention to what my loved ones are talking about the most and those are the things I usually buy for them.
But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like to receive gifts also! 🙂
12. Are you a pro present-wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I’m creative … but by far a pro. I HATE wrapping weird shaped objects!
13. What is your most memorable holiday moment?
That time when I was about 6 years old and my mom put the Christmas presents under the tree 3 days before Christmas. When I woke up my parents were still sleeping. I walked in the living room and saw all the presents with my name on them. I was SOOOO excited and thought I could open them and just put them back in a way my mom would notice. But of course she did. As a punishment i didnt get ANY resent that Christmas. But mom (loving as she was) gave me all my presents the day after!
14. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
From the beginning my parents told me that Santa wasn’t real. So I was that kid that had to live with the fact I couldn’t tell the kids at school he wasn’t real. I felt SO grown hahaha… but believe me it was hard to keep my mouth shut!
15. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
Yes… and NO hahaha
But this year I’m planning on sticking to them!
16. What makes the holidays special for you?
To me it’s because you get to spend it with the ones you love. Good food, good movies, good talks, lot’s of laughter, decorating…I’m a sucker for Christmas…YES I AM!
I’m tagging all of you!! I know Christmas is over and done with but let’s just stay in the spirit ’til the end of the year, shall we?!
