Blogmas’ Christmas Tag 2016 | Blogmas Day 1

So, since I have decided to take on blogging again– I also have decided to take on a blogmas challenge this year!  I’m kind of excited but I am kind of nervous because I always seem to run out of time for writing these days.  But this is sooo much fun I don’t want to miss out.  Plus, I could use the challenge in my life right now.

I think that the way that I am going to do my blogmas posts, I will have some daily life posts… some blended family posts… some general holiday posts… and some themed posts.  We will just have to see what happens as I go!  But if you have any posts that you would like me to write about, please let me know!

Today, I thought I would go ahead and start with a Christmas tag! I originally found this tag over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.  <—- You can click that link over there and visit her blog as well!


Christmas Tag

✨Whats Your Favorite Holiday Movie?  I don’t think that I have a favorite holiday movie– I enjoy almost any holiday movie!  As a child, we watched The Grinch every year since it was my mom’s favorite.  But now, we try to squeeze in as many holiday movies as we can in December!

✨Whats Your Favorite Christmas Color?   I like the white colors of Christmas– I know that seems boring and very plain… but I find something wonderful in the simple elegance of the white.

✨Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?  I really prefer to stay in my PJs all day long!  However, for Christmas celebrations we generally dress up more.  I’m not thrilled with getting all dressed up… just not as comfy cozy!

✨If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be?  This is a hard question– because I have so many special people in my life.  However, with it being our first Christmas as a married couple I would probably make sure I bought my husband a present.

✨Do You Open Your Present Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?  This depends on planning really.  Most of the time, we open our household’s gifts on Christmas morning.  Then we go over to another family member’s house to celebrate.  We will then have more Christmas’ throughout the week really.  We have a lot of families to celebrate with… so it takes awhile to get ours all done.

  ✨ What Do You Like To Do On Your Christmas Break?  Sleep!  Drink hot chocolate!  Watch movies!  I just like to take it easy!  This rarely happens though.

✨Any Christmas Wishes?  No Christmas wishes this year…  I have had a great year this year!

✨Favorite Christmas Smell?  I actually have just fallen in love with a candle called “Flannel”.  Which I honestly think is suppose to be a fall scent… but I love it!  Just reminds me of a warm, cozy place!

✨Favorite Christmas Meal Or Treat?  One of my favorite holiday meal parts was my grandma’s rice mixture.  I don’t really know if it had a name– but it was delicious (and very unhealthy).  We all learned how to make it but in my head… my grandma’s was the best!

✨What are you doing for the holidays this year?  My work schedule is crazy– because I work in the medical field, we only have Christmas Day off.  So, it is hard for me to tell you what we are doing for the holidays this year.  I’m just relieved that I have some of our shopping done and it’s only December 1st!

✨What’s your favorite holiday drink?  At first, I thought this one was going to be easy!  But then the more and more I started thinking– I have a couple!  I really like hot chocolate.  But I also like Eggnog.  Oh, I love this!  I can even go to Starbucks and I can get eggnog in a Frappachino or any other version!

✨Candy cane or Gingerbread men?  Neither.  I don’t really like either of these options.

✨What’s your favorite holiday/Christmas song?  I like all Christmas songs.  But only after Thanksgiving.  Christmas music before Thanksgiving– I don’t like that.  I feel like it skips the whole middle holiday between Halloween and Christmas!  We should be thankful for a day before we switch to the Christmas spirit.

✨What is most important to you about the holidays?  Being with family.  Be it my family within my household, or with my in-laws, or my own extended family.  I’m so geared toward family.  It’s a great time to be catching up with everyone and have everyone in a great mood.


So, there is a little bit of a start!  A decent start for blogmas…  I can’t wait to see where this journey leads me!  I’ll “see” you all tomorrow!
