I really, really, really love Christmas and the whole month of December in general. Things have been quite busy in the last two weeks but I think that I will really be able to start enjoying this wonderful time of the year from this week on.

I recently watched this tag video on Youtube and it was super funny, so I thought I’d give it a go. Have you done any Christmas related tags or do you have any suggestions for other tags you’d like me to do? Comment below!

1. What is your favourite holiday movie?

Probably Home alone. I was about the same age as Macaulay Culkin when the movie came out and I had a huge crush on him. I have seen the movie countless times and can probably quote the whole thing by heart. But I always, always only watch it during the Christmas season.

2. What are your favourite Christmas colours?

Gold and dark green. My whole house basically looks like a very festive forest around this time of the year.

3. Do you like to stay in your PJ’s or dress up for Christmas?

I never like to stay in my PJ’s so the same goes for Christmas. We have a huge Christmas dinner on 24th each year with my family and we all dress up for the occasion.

4. Favorite Christmas song?

From the carols, definitely Deck the halls – I sing this all year long. From pop hits, probably Santa baby by Madonna.

5. Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Most of the presents I open together with my family on Christmas Eve, but my hubby and I usually give each other our presents on Christmas morning. Well, to be honest, we never get up very early on Christmas, so it would be fairer to say we open the presents on Christmas noon.

6. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?

Nope. But apparently you can now get them already pre-packaged and just put them together like Lego. That I could probably manage.

7. What do you like to do on Christmas holiday?

I don’t really have any holiday to speak of, but on the days off, I will probably have friends over for dinners or go to city center to take in some Christmas spirit.

8. Any Christmas wishes?

Health – for me and my family. Enough prosperity to enable us with a normal life. Stabilisation of economy and improvement in social structures in Slovenia – I really wish that the country would start existing for the people, not because of them.

9. Favourite Christmas smell?

Anything with cinnamon or vanilla.

10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat?

My grandfather makes a mean potica with poppy seeds. But as far as things go that you can buy in stores, I have developed an obsession with Milka Christmas almonds – I only found them in Müller this year and bought 5 packs to make sure I won’t run out of them before December ends 🙂

11. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Fake. I don’t care much for real trees – it’s not very kind to the environement and apparently also leaves a huge mess. I would love to get a more modern tree sometime in the future. I saw one I liked in Merkur this year and I had real hard time deciding that I don’t need it that bad.

12. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?

I am quite good at wrapping small things but really, really bad at wrapping larger presents (as the giveaway winners are soon to find out).

13. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Luckily, we almost always have some snow in Slovenia during the winter holidays, but considering it’s 15 degrees Celsius outside today, I am not very optimistic.

And that’s it! Hope you guys enjoyed finding out something new about me 🙂

Until next time, stay beautiful, stay awesome.
