Christmas Tag!

Hope from Beauty&Bliss came out with this tag a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was really cute, plus you guys know I'm all about the holidays and being festive so I decided to join in!

1. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
I love pretty much everything about Christmas! I love the decorations, the baked goods, the clothes, the colors, and it just seems like everyone is a little more cheery this time of year so I love that. I also love getting to spend time with family and going to light shows and things like that!

2. When you were a kid, what did you leave for Santa on Christmas Eve?
I'm pretty sure I just left him cookies of some kind. When I was young my mom and I would go all out and make cookies with cookie cutters, sprinkles, frosting and all that so I probably left those.

3. Do you and/or your family have any Christmas traditions?
My family on my Mom's side usually gets together on Christmas Eve for a little party where everyone brings appetizers and different dishes and we catch up with each other, eat a lot and open some presents.
A tradition that my Mom and I love is that we always watch A Christmas Story when we decorate our tree (when we can do it together) and on Christmas morning when we're opening presents...and the 24 hour marathon on tbs is a given.

4. When decorating, do you go all out or just do a small amount of decorating?
I think for some people, I go all out, and for others my decorating probably looks pitiful, haha. I try to have a little bit of decorations in every room, but nothing too over the top...for now ;)

5.  What is your favorite Christmas dinner food?
Our Christmas dinner is pretty much the same as Thanksgiving and I love all of it- the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, etc. but what I really look forward to are everyone's appetizers at our Christmas Eve party. My favorites are sausage dip and homemade pimento cheese- yum!

6. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
A Christmas Story! I can watch it a thousand times and never be tired of it. But I also love How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey and the cartoon one, and all the Christmas cartoon/claymation classics. I also love to watch the abc family, Lifetime, and Hallmark movies.

7. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Again, I hate to choose a favorite, because I love all of the classics, but I get so excited when Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas is You comes on :)

8. What was your favorite gift you've ever received?
I honestly can't think of one. I love pretty much all the gifts I'm given because someone thought of me when they bought it. I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true!

9. What is your favorite Christmas memory?
Hmm, I don't have anything specific, but probably making Christmas cookies with my Mom, decorating our tree with my parents and our Christmas Eve parties (Shh, I know I chose 3!)

10. Does it snow where you live?
Where I'm from we would get a little bit of snow some years, usually just an inch or two, if anything. Where I live now I believe it's about the same but it's a little further north so it's probably more likely to happen here and if you follow me on twitter or instagram you've probably seen pictures I've posted because it's already snowed twice!

11. Do you own an "ugly holiday sweater"?
I actually don't! I wish I did because they're so cute and festive! One year I'll buy one because I love them...well, maybe it won't be "ugly" but I would really like a Christmas sweater.

12. Hot chocolate or eggnog?
Hot chocolate, definitely. I'm not a fan of the taste of eggnog, it kind of tastes like bubblegum to me. However, one of my favorite Christmas recipes that I've started making involves eggnog and it's delicious! I'll be doing a post on that soon!

13. Have you ever been kissed under a mistletoe?

So that's the end of the tag! I have a really hard time choosing a "favorite" anything if you didn't notice, haha! Thanks so much to Hope for creating this tag! I tag anyone else who wants to participate and if you do, let me know in the comments so I can check out your post!
