I can’t believe that Christmas is only a week away! I’m so excited! You can see my first Christmas tree- my parents bought it for me and I fell in love with it. It’s a true Charlie Brown Christmas tree, and it goes so perfectly in my small apartment! Stacey did a holiday tag video and she tagged me, so I thought that I would answer the questions here so if you’re interested about my holiday traditions then here we go!
1) Which holiday do you celebrate?
I celebrate Christmas!
2) What are you doing for the holidays this year?
I’m spending Christmas Eve at my parents’ house- we always have perogies and tourtiere (French meat pie) for dinner because we like to combine both sides of my family’s heritage (Ukranian & French). We go to a special Christmas Eve service at Church, then come home and light a fire, get into comfy PJs and open presents! The next morning I’m heading off to my boyfriends’ parents’ place for the morning and afternoon, then I’ll be coming back for Christmas turkey dinner with my family. I’m really excited!
3) What’s your favorite holiday drink?
Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice… it just tastes like Christmas!
4) Candy cane or Gingerbread men?
5) What’s your favorite holiday/Christmas song?
I’ve been addicted to listening to Michael Buble’s Christmas album lately, but my favorite songs over all are O Holy Night, Mary Did You Know and We Three Kings… when I was younger and used to play musical instruments, these were always my favorite songs to play at Christmas!
6) What’s the weirdest gift you’ve ever received?
I really have the worst memory in the world, and I can hardly remember any gifts that I received (except for a few monumental ones of my childhood, like getting a Furby).
7) Have you ever made a snowman?
Of course! I grew up in Saskatchewan in the prairies, and we got a LOT of snow.
8) What is your favorite winter fragrance?
Peppermint… hands down!
9) What is at the top of your list this Christmas? (or whichever holiday you celebrate!)
This year I’m asking Santa for a Kelly Moore bag- it’s basically a fashionable and functional camera bag made for women photographers. I really don’t have anything to carry my equipment with (being at NYFW really made me realize this) so that’s a priority.
10) What is most important to you about the holidays?
Spending quality time with my family, sharing excitement, good food and never forgetting the true meaning of Christmas!
