Holly Jolly Holiday Tag!

1. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until last minute?
I don't necessarily do either, but I do like to be organized and have things prepared. Also, since most of my close friends are online or live pretty far away, I need to be ready in advance to make sure gifts reach them before Christmas!

2. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be?
I think Polar Express, that seems like something that would be a lot of fun!

3. Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas Day! Though there's a lot of excitement in Christmas Eve waiting for the next day, I think it's more fun when the day is actually happening and you get to rip into the presents!

4. When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?
Usually around the beginning of December is when our tree goes up and we usually decorate it as a family, however my brother chose to play games instead this year and it was just my mom and me.

5. White lights or colored lights?
We tend to have white lights because it fits best with our burgundy and gold theme my mom sets up, however it kind of depends on the year. Overall, I like both, what gets put up just depends.

6. Are you guilty of peeking at your presents or do you like surprise?
I like surprises but I don't like knowing I have them but not knowing what they are, if that makes sense, haha. Usually I already know what I'm getting though so there isn't much to peek at. I remember one year when I was really young and we lived at our old house, my mom had two doors that led into the bedroom and the locks didnt work at the time so she actually had to chain the door handles so that my oldest brother couldn't get in and peek. (LOL) And so I, being the tiniest, got talked into being pushed up through the door (if you pushed on it there was a slight opening at the top) to go in and peek at the presents! I don't even remember how I got out..

7. Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or Santa's Workshop?
Santa's workshop! If I lived in a gingerbread house I'd be homeless in a week!

8. Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions!
One tradition that's always stuck has been to open one present on Christmas Eve, however as we've gotten older and have wanted more expensive things its been less of a tradition.

9. If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone, who would it be?
Faraz, obviously! Haha.

10. What tops your tree?
This year we've topped our tree with a lit up star and a big bow.

I was tagged by the lovely Traci of drinkcitra to do this tag. I tag any of you who want to do it, it was a lot of fun! ♥
