What a crazy week! I am so proud to announce that I have the world's cutest nephew, born on Dec. 5 at 8.03pm. His name is Christopher and I'm dedicating an entire post to him reeeeeal soon.
Until then, though, it's time to get even more Christmas than I already am. Didn't think it was possible? Well I'm here to prove you wrong. Because Niina is a babe after my own heart, she started this Christmas tag and it is my duty, nay honour, to do this tag. You're all so, so welcome.
1. What's your favourite holiday movie?
The Grinch of course! It's whimsical, sometimes sad, mostly funny and all round great.
2. What's your favourite Christmas colour?
I feel like red is the only safe answer.. I'm lucky in that it goes with my skin tone just amazingly. The classic red-and-green combo is pretty good too, but silver and white are fun too.
3. Do you like to stay in your PJ's or dress up for Christmas?
I stay in my PJ's most all day every day anyway... But Christmas Eve is all about the PJ's, as is Christmas morning, but Christmas day is all about dressing up. And by dressing up I mean adding reindeer ears to my flashing Christmas shirt...
4. If you could buy one person a present this year who would it be?
I just think he is so unappreciated. The reindeer get carrots and he gets a glass of milk and a cookie. What about that travel book he's been eyeing off all year? Or that new Kindle? Santa wants presents too!
5. Do you open your gifts on Christmas eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning. It takes all of my willpower though. Christmas eve is just the most tempting time!
In all honesty though, Justin's mum made me open a present early this year (yes, already). I had no choice!
6. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
I have indeed. My last gingerbread house was more of a gingerbread tent but that's okay, it's a part of life. My first ever gingerbread house was amazing though - it was so covered in candy that no one believed it was a gingerbread house any longer.
7. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
Read, sleep, swim. This Christmas though I should ideally be frolicking in snow, sitting by a fireplace, shopping the Finnish Christmas markets, reading a good book and drinking some unusual beverage.
I AM SO EXCITED.
8. Any Christmas wishes?
Please, please, please let there be snow on Christmas day. PLEASE.
9. Favourite Christmas smell?
Roast lamb in the oven on Christmas day. You know ish is getting real when you smell the lamb.
10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat?
May have already answered this question! Although, can't really look past candy canes. At no other point in the year is it acceptable to eat candy canes.
11. What's your favourite holiday song?
ALL OF THEM. I am particularly loving Michael Buble's rendition of White Christmas featuring Shania Twain (weird but wonderful combo) but my old school favourite is It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Do the tag (or the Grinch really will steal Christmas) and let me know!
Merry Christmas :-)
