Christmas Favorites!

Guys, we’re in the home stretch. 5 days till Christmas and 12 days until 2016. crazypants.

Anywhoo, last year I did a Christmas survey so I figured I’d do one this year too because, tradition.

I’m borrowing this one from Libby at Honestly, Libby. I use the term borrow very loosely because I can’t give it back. I can tell you to go over and read hers though, which you definitely should. So, when you’re done here go straight there. I’m not kidding.

I’m also borrowing the u in favorite because it’s fun and makes me feel super posh. Now on with the show.

What are your Favourite Christmas colors?
Anything that sparkles, for the win.

PJ’s or fancy dress of Christmas day?
My family has (very frustratingly) made every holiday a “dress sweats” holiday. Dress sweats, if you aren’t familiar, are the nicest pair of sweatpants/track suit that you won. It irks the ever loving shit out of me. So this year, I’m going to wear a skirt and a nice top. And I’ll probably bring my dress sweats for when dinner is over because I could only be ladylike for so long.

Presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning. The anticipation thrills me.

Stay home or go away?
Stay home as in I stay in the tri-state area. I go over the river and through the woods to Staten Island for Christmas dinner.

Favourite part of the Christmas meal?
The part where I say to myself “a new year starts in a week, so could your diet” and I eat the extra ravioli.

Favourite Holiday treat?
All of them.

Dream Christmas Location?
LONDON. I’d take Italy also. But really, why would I leave New York at Christmas time? (because London and Italy – that’s why.)

Pro-present wrapper?
In my dreams.

Favourite Reindeer?

Favourite Cracker Toy?
Are crackers like stockings? In that case, Reeses Trees. If they aren’t, then I’m going to “borrow” Libby’s answer and say jewelry because who would say no to sparkly wearables?

Favourite Christmas Decoration?
I love wreaths. The heavily decorated ones. And double points if they have lights.

Can you name all of the Reindeer?
Yes! Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy, Bashful, and Doc. Wait…

Weirdest gift you ever got?
My father always gets me one of those shirts with wolves howling at the moon on them. I don’t know why because I’ve never had any sort of fascination with wolves. One year I mentioned that I thought otters were cute so instead of wolves I got an otter family shirt. Thank God for bottom drawers.

Favourite Christmas Memory?
I have so many. Going to church with my grandma on Christmas Eve, opening presents on Christmas morning with my parents and then Christmas afternoon with the rest of my family, getting letters from Santa, checking to see if he came and if Rudolph ate his carrot. SO MANY.

Favourite Christmas Carol?
The entire NSYNC Home for the Holidays album, All I want for Christmas is You, It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas, the song from Home Alone 2 when Kev and his mom are reunited.

Favourite Christmas Movie?
I wrote about some of them here but there are so many more. I’ll just go with basically every one ever made. Except those claymation Rudolph and Friends ones. Ugh.
