For Day three of Blogmas, I am participating in the “Christmas Tag”, a set of questions for bloggers to answer this season. There are a few different versions of the questionnaire floating around, and I chose one at random. Participants are encouraged to “Tag” other bloggers, assigning them the task of answering the questions on their blogs as well. I don’t like putting pressure on other bloggers, and coming up with a blog topic a day for 25 days is hard enough, so…if you want to do it, go for it! Let me know in the comments if you did, because I’d love to read your answers!!!
1. What is your favorite Christmas Movie?
This is an easy one! I am a sucker for “Four Christmases” with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon! It is SO funny, and I swear I could watch Vince Vaughn sit on a couch for 2 hours and not get bored, so this is a no-brainer! The interplay of all the different families depicted is really fun to watch, and there are lots of laugh out loud moments, too. I highly recommend it!
2. What are your favorite Christmas Colors?
I’m a huge fan of Gold and Silver. I am a stickler for white lights ONLY on our tree (which makes my husband NUTS) because I like the clean look of them.
The kids decorate their own tree upstairs where anything goes, though! 😊
3. Do you dress up for Christmas, or stay in your PJs all day?
Are there really people who dress up for Christmas??? I am certainly not one of them! I’m in my PJs ALL DAY (and night…into the next day…)
4. What do you eat for Christmas Dinner?
We begin with appetizers, including Brie and Foie Gras. Of course, Champagne is a must as well!
For dinner, I make Beef Tenderloin, twice baked potatoes and spinach soufflé.
Dessert is always a “Bouche de Noel” (a chocolate cake in the shape of a log,) which is a tribute to my Grandmother’s French heritage.
5. What is the best gift you ever received?
I know it sounds corny, but I swear it’s true: anything and everything my children have ever given me, especially the gifts they make themselves!
6. What is your favorite Christmas memory?
When I was young, around 8 or 9, I remember my whole extended family gathering at our house and singing Christmas songs while my Mom played the piano. At some point, we decided to take the show on the road! We went caroling all over our neighborhood. It was a magical night!
7. What is your favorite Christmas scent?
Vanilla! To be honest, Vanilla is my favorite scent all year long, but there is something about the soothing smell of vanilla that just feels like Christmas. Especially if it’s a Cinnamon Vanilla mix! Yummy!!
8. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
I could listen to “Run Rudolph Run” (the Bryan Adams version) 24 hours a day during the holiday season! My family, however, has made it clear that they would rather not. 😂😂 So mostly I listen to it when I’m alone. I never tire of it, so upbeat, and great to dance to!
9. What is the best part of Christmas?
Family. No question!! Having the kids home from school, getting together with family to laugh and eat and talk…that’s heaven to me!
10. What is your favorite Christmas goodie?
GINGERBREAD!! We do it all, Gingerbread men, women and children, and gingerbread houses (each family member decorates their own) Oh, the YUM!!!
Christmas Tag…CHECK!! Let me know if you do your own post, or tell me some of your thoughts in the comments! Merry Blogmas!🎄
