Blogmas: The Christmas Tag

Hello Everyone!

One of my blogger friend Dee recently tagged me for the Christmas Tag so let's get started!

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?

I actually have two. A Christmas Story and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. My favorite Christmas Cartoon is How the Grinch Stole Chrisitmas! As you can see I have the DVD's :)

2. Is your Christmas tree real or a fake?

I have an artificial tree. I would love to have a real tree, but it sets my allergies and sinuses off. i.e. Christmas 1996 the year we had a live Christmas tree lol.

3. What refreshments did you leave out for Santa when he visited you on Christmas Eve all those years ago

So, my mom told me that "Santa" liked pound cake and Pepsi lol haha!! (it was more of just a slice of pound cake. This picture was taken on Thanksgiving, but you get the idea)

4. What tops your Christmas tree?

This year I got creative and put silver bells on top of my tree since my theme is Silver Bells and Blue. Past Christmases I've had a star, an angel, and I think one year a bow.

5. Favorite Christmas memory?

I have so many wonderful Christmas memories especially from my childhood. I think that each Christmas is special in its own way.

6. What makes Christmas special to you?

Spending time with my loved ones, and celebrating my brithday, which is also on Christmas Day.

7. Was there a present that you asked for but Santa never brought?

A Barbie Jeep. I wanted one so badly! On the brightside I've had two different barbie dream houses growing up :)

8. What is your favorite Christmas song?

All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey. I absolutely love this song! I've loved this song since I was a little girl!

9. Without meaning to sound ungrateful what was your worst Christmas present ever?

I had an aunt who was notorious for re-gifting and manipulation gifts. I say manipulating because she gave me a cross stitch set one year (I think I was about to turn 14 that Christmas), and when I opened the box something didn't look quite right. Needless to say I didn't use it, and I noticed some of the yarn pieces were missing anyway.

I want to thank my friend Dee for tagging me and I tag anyone who wants to participate! If you do this tag link your post so I can read it!

What a fun tag! I have an artificial tree as well. It's just so much easier than a real one and yep so much better not to have to deal with allergies ;p

Pilar, I think Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is my favorite of the Home Alone movies. I just watched it last night. Your tree with silver and blue is so pretty. You are so lucky to have gotten the Barbie Dream Houses. I loved Barbie growing up, but only had one and had to play with my neighbor's Barbie's and clothes and accessories haha.

It's nice to get to know you better, Pilar.

It's such a funny movie!

Thanks! I remember when I was little I would say "Santa likes the same snacks you do mama" lol.

Pilar said...

Thanks! I'll take an artificial tree any day over a real one. My allergies and sinuses can't take the pine scent of a real tree!

Pilar said...

I know right! I would get distracted by my love for everything else Barbie related I received on Christmas Morning, but I never forgot about the Barbie Jeep though! lol
