I got this idea a while back from the girls at Muchu Mucho Bueno Bueno and thought it would be a perfect little post to kick off the month of December! Feel free to use it as a post on your blog as well or even just leave your answers as a comment if you like! I'd love to read them!
1. Are you a lover or hater of Christmas music? If yes, what are your favorite Christmas Albums?
I do love Christmas music...but I don't start playing it until the first of December. I know this probably sounds Grinch-y of me, but I can't stand seeing Christmas stuff going up in October and listening to Christmas music before December has even begun. I get burnt out and it's ruined for me by the time it gets here. Once December 1st gets here though I'm REALLY excited to start decorating and listening to Christmas music! My favorites include anything by Elvis, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, and Sinatra!
2. What is your favorite memory about Christmas?
One year my dad had set up a scavenger hunt for a gift we were totally not expecting. It took us about 15 minutes or so to get through the hunt until we finally found it. It was a go-cart and it was awesome! It was really thoughtful of him to set up a scavenger hunt like that.
3. Do you have Christmas traditions? Do Tell!
For as far back as I can remember, it was a tradition to make Christmas cookies every year. My stepmom has THE best cookie recipe that she keeps secret. She bakes them up and we decorate them. My dad and stepmom divorced years ago, but my sisters and I still go to her house every year to make them like we always have. It's one of my favorite things to look forward to around Christmas!
4. When do you get your tree and decorate?
Honestly, it's different every year, but usually right after Thanksgiving. We used to get real trees when we were younger, but then we got a fake one one year and we've stuck with it ever since. Next Christmas may be my first Christmas living somewhere other than home away from family and my new tradition will be to decorate my tree December 1st.
5. When do you take your decorations down?
I like to take down Christmas decor the day after. I like everything to be stowed away before the new year.
