The Christmas Tag!

 



Hey everyone! It’s time for a Christmas themed tag! Since I celebrate Christmas, these are the kind of posts I do this time of year. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, you do you! I wasn’t tagged for this, I just saw it floating around on the internet. Let’s get started!



The Christmas Book Tag

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?

I love Frosty The Snowman, How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Home Alone. Those are just my top three. There are so many amazing Christmas movies!

 2. Have You Ever Had A White Christmas?

Only once that I can remember. Even then it wasn’t really a white Christmas. It just snowed a bit. Where I live, it doesn’t snow a whole lot so white Christmas’ don’t really happen.

3. Where Do You Usually Spend Your Holiday?

Christmas Eve is normally at home with the family I live with or extended family. Christmas has always been at my Grandma’s house. Sometimes there’s gatherings with family before or after Christmas. It really depends on what’s going on.

What Is Your Favorite Christmas Song?

This shouldn’t be a question! One of my favorite songs is Winter Wonderland.


 Do You Open Any Christmas Presents On Christmas Eve?

We get to open 1-3 presents and then the rest are saved for Christmas.

Can You Name All Of Santa’s Reindeer?

Nope… Rudolph, Vixen, Blitzen, Dasher, Dancer, Comet and Cupid. I looked it up and I only missed two!

What Christmas Traditions Are You Looking Forward To This Year?

Today I will be going to my Grandmas for a small gathering. We have brunch, open presents and stockings. It’s a fun time and very relaxed. On Christmas Eve we normally just stay home but this year we had people over. That might be a new tradition!


Is Your Christmas Tree Real Or Fake?

Ours is real. It’s the biggest one we’ve gotten. I’ve never had a fake tree but  I know people who always have one.

Be Honest, Do You Like Giving Or Receiving Gifts Better?

I enjoy both but it’s satisfying to buy a gift for someone and see their reaction to it.


What’s The Best Christmas Gift You Ever Received?

I honestly have no idea. I can’t remember most of the gifts I received. That doesn’t mean they weren’t amazing, I just can’t remember small specific things like that.


What’s Your Dream Place To Visit For The Holiday Season?

Disneyland, London, New York and Hogwarts. A wide variety of course 🙂

Are You A Pro Present Wrapper Or Do You Fail Miserably?

I consider myself not too bad but other people’s skills blow me away. For the very few gifts I bought, I decided to just use gift bags this year.


Most Memorable Christmas Moment?

My first Christmas was probably pretty memorable. Every Christmas is memorable for me in its own way.


What Made You Realize The Truth About Santa?

Truth? What truth? I’m just kidding. My parents kept it going for a very long time. The kids at school ruined it for me. I was in denial until a few years ago. I’m still a teenager so that was when I was a child.

What Makes The  Holidays Special For You?

Spending time with family! There’s some family that I don’t get to see much so the holidays are the only time I can do that.


I tag anyone who needs a last-minute post! Since it’s Christmas today, nobody will be doing this anymore. Merry Christmas, and if you don’t celebrate, Happy Holidays!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags!

Top Ten Tuesday| Under The Christmas Tree

Hey everyone! This is my first TTT in forever! It’s good to finally be back. If you didn’t already know, Top Ten Tuesday or TTT was created by The Broke and The Bookish. Go check their wonderful Blogger blog out 🙂 Christmas is in five days and that means it’s time for a Christmas themed topic!

Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree (or non-book bookworm items)


Ten Things I’d Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree:

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Believe it or not, I have yet to own or even read this book. I’ve heard it’s pretty good but haven’t had the chance to read it. That’s why I wouldn’t mind finding it under my tree!

2. The Sun Is Also A Star

This book came out recently and I’m so excited to read it. It’s by Nicola Yoon, the author of Everything,Everything. Since that book blew my mind, I can’t wait to read her second book!

3. Movie Tickets To Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

I still haven’t seen this movie!! I’ve heard it’s incredible and am running out of time to see it. Some movie tickets all ready to go would help a ton!

4. Bookish Posters!

My walls are super bare and I’d love to have a bookish poster or two to fill some gaps.

5. Book Related T-Shirts

I am a teen who loves graphic t-shirts. It would be amazing to have book related ones about books in general or specific ones.

6. A Bookshelf!

While I do have a sort of bookshelf, I’d love a real one. There are some huge beautiful ones that I would love to own (but don’t have room for).

7. A Cozy Blanket!

Strangely enough, I don’t own any cozy blankets. Where I live, it’s been unusually freezing and a blanket is definitely necessary.

8. A Mug!

I’ve been literally obsessed with hot chocolate this year. We own a few mugs but I’d love a personal one.

9. A Book Box Subscription!

I’ve seen monthly book boxes floating around. They look and sound fantastic but they’re a bit too expensive for me. That’s why I’m asking Santa for some help 🙂

10. A Sweatshirt

I love sweatshirts so much. They are my go to for around the house or out and about. I definitely could use a couple more.

That’s a wrap! If you celebrate Christmas, what would you like to find under your tree? If you don’t, what present would you like to receive?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

Christmas Haul 2015

Hey everyone! Happy New Years Eve or New Year depending on where you live. This post is a bit late but at least I got it done this year 😉 This Christmas I went to my Grandma’s for brunch, opened lots of presents, and spend lots of time with family.

How was your Christmas? Let me know in the comments!

I decided to take some pictures and show you some of the great gifts I got.


First off, I got lots of Harry Potter clothing. My mom got me quite a few T-shirts including the ones featured in this picture. I also got a Harry Potter beanie! As you know, I’m now absolutely obsessed with all things Harry Potter so this was perfect 🙂

I also received some awesome pajama pants from my mom and some fuzzy polar bear pajamas from my grandma.

These are the exact pajama pants. They are flannel and so comfortable!

To keep with the fuzzy and warm theme, my mom got me a big blanket and a new sweatshirt.

I couldn’t get a very good picture of the sweatshirt. It’s a zip up hoodie and super comfortable.


 

I received I Funny TV from my mom and I can’t wait to read it!

I got lots of delicious food including this container of different kinds of popcorn.

Our container has a Santa on it but is bigger than this one.


I got more gifts than this but I only wanted to show a few.

What did you get for Christmas? Let me know!

That’s my Christmas Haul. I had more actual pictures but I forgot to edit them before I sent them to my email.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more hauls!
