Christmas Questionnaire

I love any opportunity to share a little of myself with all of you, so I’m linking up with Fabulous in First, here are my answers to the Christmas Questionnaire;

1. When do you decorate?
I always decorate the day after Thanksgiving. My house is pretty tiny, and I only decorate my living room and my kitchen, so it only takes a couple of hours. I love to turn on Christmas music or find a cheesy Christmas movie on Lifetime to listen to while I decorate.  When it’s finished everything feels so festive, I love being able to enjoy it for an entire month!

2. Elf or no Elf?
No elf for me. I don’t have any kids of my own, so there’s no reason for me to have one at home. At my old school parents would occasionally sneak their child’s elf into the classroom, which made for a very well behaved class for the day, but we really didn’t go out of our way to celebrate holidays, so I never had an elf in my classroom, and now I’m not really in the classroom, so again, no need for an elf.

3. Christmas Cookies, or no baking for you?
I am the Christmas cookie queen! Seriously, I have friends who order cookies from me for their holiday parties.  I have spent years perfecting my secret recipe and frosting cookies is so relaxing to me.  I spend way too much time on them, but they are a hit (and expected) at every single party that we attend.

4. Favorite Holiday Tradition
My favorite holiday tradition is definitely baking cookies.  I used to do it with my mom when I was little (she taught me all the tricks), and I look forward to it every year.  It has become my quiet time to really focus on something that I love to do, and all of the stress disappears when I’m pouring myself into something creative.

5. Favorite Christmas Movie
I can’t pick one, but I do have a list of movies that I make sure to watch every year

6. Snow or no snow
If I had it my way there would always be snow for Christmas! It just doesn’t feel like Christmas without snow.  Winter in Ohio is gray and dreary, but when it’s snowing it’s so pretty, it feels a little magical.  Here’s a great photo that I took last year right after Christmas:
7. Favorite Christmas Song
I have very strange taste when it comes to Christmas music.  I like the classic country Christmas stuff (anything from Alabama, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride) and then I like Pop Christmas music – particularly 90’s and early 2000s (Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera).  Right now my favorite Christmas Album is from Michael Buble, but Lady Antebellum’s Christmas CD is a close second.

8. Favorite Christmas gifts to give and get
I shared a post earlier this month with my “favorite things” all of these are great to give and to get! If I don’t know what to get for someone, my go to gift is always a candle from Bath and Body Works.  I love the scents and they’re so reasonably priced!
