Blogmas 2016! [Day 1- The Christmas Tag]

_dsc1015

As you may gather from the tittle this year I’m doing Blogmas again. This time, 12 days of Blogmas. What a way to start it all than with a Q&A on Christmas!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Mmmm, it’s hard because I don’t think I have a specific xmas movie, but I usually see “Love Actually” and “Home Alone” during that time of the year, so they should qualify as favourites.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
I come from Argentina,and there we celebrate Christmas on the 24th, so we usually open presents after midnight on Christmas eve.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
When I was young we spent a couple of Christmases and my grandmother’s brother house, with all of my father’s cousins, their kids and their cousins. We were heaps! I remember every time at midnight a sweaty Santa (xmas during summer) would suddenly appear on the roof and get down some stairs, give a couple of gifts there and then ‘he’ would guide us to the living room that was packed with presents. We were more than 20 there…so if anyone got at least one present you can image the amount of presents stacked against the tree.

4. Favourite festive food?
Hands down Vitel Tone, veal eye of round with creamy tuna sauce with capers. I can eat buckets of that thing, and there is nothing better than getting into the kitchen the next day, grab a piece of bread and make yourself a cheeky Vitel Tone sandwich.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Here I’m going to count gifts I’ve received when I was young. I think and the ones I can remember two of my favourite gift were, When I was around 11 I received a cassette and cd player, kind of like a jukebox I could have in my room, that poor player went from Britney and the Spice Girls to a Goth Emo phase history. And the other thing I remember I went nuts for was an inconspicuous brown box that was filled with makeup. every colour eye shadow you can image, glitter lip gloss, brushes, the lot.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I have to say I think only this year I’ve discovered what I call a Christmas scent and it’s the one of Apple and Cinnamon candles.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
I don’t think so. We do always used to spend Christmas with family and New Years with friend, and we do have more traditions around New Years.

8. What tops your tree?
We gave away our Christmas tree when I was young and never actually got another. But a couple of years ago Le Mother got some Stilleto shaped decorations that I loved. This year we are thinking of getting a real tree, but still have no decorations, so we’ll have o wait and see.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I can’t really remember, I don’t think I ever asked so something really crazy though. I do remember one of my friends had one of those easy bake ovens and a McDonalds play set you could make you own McMenu (you would used sliced bread and make it into fries and whatnot) and I thought it was awesome, but I can’t remember asking for one.

10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
I’m a sucker for hosting and decorating for events (I am my mother’s daughter,) so decorating the house, Christmas baking and giving gifts is some of the things I love about the holidays. This year specially, It’s going to be the first time we are spending Christmas during winter and I’m hosting Christmas Eve at our place.

Hope this gives you a little insights into my Christmas life, if you’d like to continue the tag copy and paste the questions below and don’t forget to tag me in it so I can read it. I’m going to personally invite all the girls from #BrunchClub to take part. And I’ll link them below if you want to read them to!
