Can you believe it’s already December 1st… I am so freaking excited for Christmas especially now that I have a daughter. Last year she was only 4 months old so she didn’t really understand what was happening but this year she will be 1 1/2 so hopefully she will get it a little more. Anyways I thought it would be fun to do this Christmas tag so that it gives everyone a chance to get to know each other!
P.S. I will be tagging some bloggers at the end of this post but if your aren’t tagged please still do this and let me know once you’ve done it so I can go read it 😊
1.What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
Hands down Elf. I live for that movie and I could watch it all year around. It was definitely a proud mama moment when Baby V watched it for the first time and became obsessed just like me.
2.Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Yes. I live in the UK so it’s not that rare.
3.Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At my parents house. However now I have a daughter I will be spending it in my own home with her and then visiting family.
4.What is your favourite Christmas song?
Anything on the Michael Bublé Christmas Album
5.Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
I’m not sure if this is a Portuguese tradition but I have done this since I was a little girl. We open family gifts on Christmas Eve after dinner and then we open gifts from “Santa” on Christmas morning.
6.Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Rudolph, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen
( I think….)
7.What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
Well now that I have a daughter and she will kind of understand what’s happening I’m looking forward to starting new traditions with her.
8.Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake. I would love a real Christmas tree but I’ve read that they are a lot of hard work.
9.What’s your all-time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
My favourite UK holiday treats are Mince Pies and cheese boards. My favourite Portuguese holiday treats are Aletria and Rabanadas.
10.Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
I like giving gifts better because I get to wrap them. I love wrapping gifts.
11.What is the best Christmas present you have ever received?
My daughter… we had been trying for a baby for a long time and I was beginning to lose hope but then on 31st December 2016 I found out that I was 6 weeks pregnant. So a late gift but the best gift I could ever possibly receive.
12.What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
13.Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
The fact that I am the one who is always asked to wrap gifts for my parents tells me I’m pretty good 😂 I really enjoy it too
14.Most memorable holiday moment?
My baby girls first Christmas. She didn’t really know what was going on but it was so cute seeing her in her little Christmas jumper and opening her little “Santa” gift..
15.What made you realise the truth about Santa?
I cried so much when I found out. It was like the little magical world in my head just shattered. My parents I guess just thought it was the right time and told me.
16.What makes the holidays special for you?
I love the build up to Christmas. The prepping, decorating, buying gifts, wrapping gifts and of course spending lots of time with loved ones and eating lots of yummy Christmas food.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post.
