The Christmas Tag

I know it's a little early for a Christmas Tag and all that jazz (then again, is it really early, I mean Christmas is less than a month) but I am so excited that so this post is just perfect for today, the first day of December!

I thought it will be fun to do a Christmas Tag post, I love these posts but I haven't done one for Christmas so here it is. Feel free to tag yourself and do one as well!

1) What is your favourite Christmas movie?
It is really difficult to choose one, there are so many favorites but if I have to choose one it would be Elf! I love this movie so much, I would watch it every week. Other favorites include The Santa Clause, The Polar Express and of course, Home Alone

2) Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
We had the tradition of opening our presents in the morning of Christmas day since we were kids. I remember how excited me and my brother were when we were little, we would woke up, head to the living room with our pj's and find our presents underneath the Christmas tree.

3) What is your favorite Christmas memory?
Putting the Christmas decoration and decorating the Christmas tree while listening to Christmas songs. 

4) Favorite festive food?
Turkey and roast potatoes. And chocolate. And chocolate cake. And hot chocolate!!!

5) Favorite Christmas scent?
Orange and cinnamon. I love these two scents together and they always remind me of Christmas.

6) Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Nothing special, watch Christmas movies, play games, eat a lovely dinner and drink liqueur like Baileys or Tia Maria.

7) What tops your tree?
Every wear, I buy a new shiny glittery star to put on top of the tree, this year it is a beautiful silver star.

8) As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I don't think there is one thing I asked and didn't receive, my parents always made sure they would get us what we wanted (someone was good throughout the year haha!).

9) What is the best part about Christmas for you?
Spending time with my family and friends, play games, watch Christmas movies and of course, eating!!!

Feel free to tag yourself and do this tag, I would love to read your answers! I hope you have a lovely day!

  15. This is a great little post, Yiota! I love Christmas for spending time with family and friends as well. Creating memories is much more important than simply exchanging gifts (although that is fun as well!)

  25. oh, this made me feel so christmassy right now! Everyone is raving about Elf being the best Christmas movie and yet I haven´t seen a bit of it. That´s definitely on top of my to-do list this year! Also I love that you have a new star on top of your tree every year! My mom always put a Santa hat on ours which is something unique but sometimes I´d just love a glittery star, you know?
