I was tagged by the lovely craftynail to talk about Christmas with y’all….I’m not really feeling Christmas this year, but maybe I can put a little Antipodean spin on it for you guys 🙂
1 Which holiday do you celebrate?
Christmas. Santa comes, we all eat too much, play backyard cricket, and talk.
2 What are you doing for the holidays this year?
I’m having Christmas day at home with my fiance, which is lovely, but it’s the first time in the 8 years since I moved from the country that I haven’t gone home for the day. I am however, going down on Boxing day to hang out with my family for five days, yayy!
3 What’s your favorite holiday drink?
It’s hot here at Christmas so we don’t really have all the lovely warming cocoa and stuff to drink…hmm. Beer?
4 Candy cane or Gingerbread men?
Both! Especially gingerbread men though, after many years I’ve got them down to a fine art. I look forward to having kids one day so we can make them together 🙂
5 What’s your favorite holiday/Christmas song?
“Last Christmas” by Wham. So very eighties, it never fails to get stuck in my head.
6 What’s the weirdest gift you’ve ever received?
A remote control helicopter from the father in law to be. I’m still speechless with wtf.
7 Have you ever made a snowman?
8 What is your favorite winter fragrance?
I love the smell of Christmas trees, mm.
9 What is at the top of your list this Christmas?
I’d really love a sewing machine, but due to the massive expense of our upcoming wedding, we’re not having gifts this year 😦
10 What is most important to you about the holidays?
I don’t really know, to be honest. I don’t have a religious background, and I often feel like Christmas just creates a lot of stress. I do love that I get to see my family though 🙂
Gosh, I’m not a total Grinch, I swear…I guess you can’t be crazy into Christmas every year.
