THE CHRISTMAS TAG | BLOGMAS DAY 16


THE CHRISTMAS TAG

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS FILM?
- I'm not that much of a fan of Christmas films, but there's one film I watch almost every Christmas and it's Barbie in the Nutcracker. I don't even know why I like that movie anyways haha! 

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS? 
- Yes! Multiple times, I'm living in Finland. Although, there's been a few black ones too. More than a few. Damn you climate change. 

WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY? 
- At J's mom, or at my mom's or at my grandpa's. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG? 
- Baby it's cold outside. 

DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
- Christmas Eve is the day when Santa arrives to households in Finland, so yeah - we get to open all the presents on 24th. 

CAN YOU NAME ALL OF SANTA'S REINDEER? 
- Well, well.. Rudolph the red nosed reindeer is only one I can remember haha! 

WHAT HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST THIS YEAR?
- Dinner at my grandpa's. 

IS YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE REAL OR FAKE? 
- Fake, sadly. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ALL-TIME HOLIDAY FOOD/SWEET TREAT? 
- Oh, there's those nougat bars called "Enkeli" made by Panda. They're my absolute favorites! 

BE HONEST: DO YOU LIKE GIVING GIFTS OR RECEIVING GIFTS BETTER? 
- Well, honestly.. I love giving gifts better than receiving. Growing up in a family where there wasn't always money for the stuff you wanted to have, gifts with a meaning meant the most. They still do. 

WHAT IS THE BEST GIFT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED? 
- I'm not so sure to be honest, as I said I've never been able to have anything what I really wanted for Christmas so I guess I'm going to go with the annual pyjama set our grandpa gives us every year. 

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON? 
- Definitely NYC. 

ARE YOU A PRO-PRESENT WRAPPER, OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY? 
- I'm a pro. 

MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY MOMENT? 
- I was 5. I went under the kitchen table because I was scared and refused to sit on the lap of a strange man who was dressed like a Santa. 

WHAT MADE YOU REALIZE THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA? 
- I've always known the truth to be honest. I've never believed in anything, like God, Jesus or even Santa Claus. 

DO YOU MAKE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS? DO YOU STICK TO THEM?
- I probably will make ones, but I don't think I will stick to them. I already know I'm going to fail. 

WHAT MAKES THE HOLIDAYS SPECIAL FOR YOU?
- Hanging out with the family & festive feeling.

  7. One thing I desperately miss about Finland is the proper winter and obviously, the white Christmas! In the UK it either rains or not - and it usually does.

  15. Awww, when I was a kid, we used to open gifts on Christmas Eve too! But as I got older, we started saving it for Christmas morning, mostly because we'd be so tired after midnight opening haha. That's such a great tradition though!
