I am starting to get into the holidays spirit and I decided to do a Christmas Tag and share with you some of my favorites and some stories maybe? 🙂 I thought it would be fun!
Initially I did this on my YouTube channel but then I figured, hey why not do it on my blog as well??? I have to admit, it took me a while to find one that I would enjoy doing and one that is in English (so many Christmas Tag videos on YouTube were in a different language) but eventually I decided to do the one created by the PointlessBlog. The tag has 8 questions and without any further due let’s jump right into it, shall we?
1). Use one noise to describe how excited you are for Christmas.
Yussss!!!! It’s hard to write down a noise, but let’s just say I am really looking forwards to it! One extra day off, presents, decorations, family time – I’m excited!
2). Whats the best present you’ve ever been given and why?
I feel like the best present I’ve received was a hair straightener/flat iron. That’s because my natural hair is very curly-frizzy-sheep-like hair and it looks absolutely terrible. So a flat iron improved not only the way I look, but also helped boost my self confidence. I still use the same straightener to date (it’s been almost 6 years already!) but it’s getting a bit old and it’s starting to take forever to fix my hair so maybe it’s time for a new one this Christmas :).
Fun fact though, two years before that I received a laptop for Christmas. But then I decided I like desktop computers more and I let my dad have the laptop. So yeah, hair straightener is the best thing I could ever get!
3). Whats the worst present you’ve ever given and why?
That’s a hard one! I don’t really know to be honest. I feel like before I moved to the UK last year I never had a lot of money… therefore a lot of the presents I’ve given were, well not awful but not that amazing either.
4). Sing a line from your favorite Christmas song.
Oh I’m so thankful I can’t sing in a blog post!! I can’t sing for the life of me (unless I have pleeeenty of drinks and I don’t care anymore) so I would of never done it. When I did the Christmas Tag on my YouTube channel I just went ahead and skipped this question, haha. I’ll tell you what my favorite Xmass song is: it’s probably got to be ‘All I want for Christmas’ by Mariah Carey. The song has been around for ages, I remember being like really young and listening to it, so every time I hear it, it just reminds me of the holidays.
5). Whats your favorite Christmas film?
Home Alone! Hands down, best movie (series) based around Christmas. They’re just so hilarious! It’s interesting though, I haven’t seen/heard anybody else mention Home Alone has their fave Christmas film… I mean c’mon, these are amazing!
6). Show how good you are at wrapping a present.
I just screenshoted my YouTube video there. I hope you can see that I am not good at all! That’s because in Romania we don’t really wrap presents. We just use gift bags (they save so much time!) so I don’t have the skills/talent to wrap anything. I tried last year, it didn’t come out pretty… dunno how keen I am on trying to wrap a present again :).
7). If you could rename one of father Christmas’ reindeer, what would you name it?
I’m not so creative, so that’s another hard one! I’d probably go with Jack (Daniels, duh!) or maybe Honey because they are really cute? Looking back at it I feel like I should of chosen a tag with questions that are easier to answer for me, haha!
8). Whats your favorite thing about Christmas?
Hands down the feeling. I mean yes, the presents are amazing, and the joy of giving as well. But it’s just that feeling in the air… everybody is excited, there are decorations/lights everywhere and it feels so different than the rest of the year. Not sure what it is that makes the time prior to Christmas feel so nice, but I love it!
Alright so that’s all for the Christmas Tag! I really hope I didn’t bore you or anything! 🙂
I’d love to hear what is your favorite thing about Christmas? Or perhaps what movie(s) do you enjoy watching around this time of the year? Let me know!
Also, since I kept mentioning the YouTube video I figured I’d list it down below as well, in case you wanna check it out 🙂
Thank you for stopping by!
