It’s December ya’ll!! So that means its time for 12 days of Christmas tag! I was inspired by RYAN AT UNI Christmas Tag so check out the one he did!! Christmas is my favorite time of year and this is a perfect way to start out this month.
1. What is your favorite Christmas Movie/s?
My favorite Christmas movies are all the collection of Home Alone! This never gets old for me, and till this day my whole family still watches it. It is a comedy and a favorite one for all ages.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
In the Latino community, we open half of them on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas Morning. Parties start on the 23rd and we have a blast just looking at the gifts lol!
3. Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?
My favorite Christmas memory was when my mom told me I was going to be a big sister. I was ALWAYS an only child and my mom had a miscarriage when I was 9 years old. When I turned 13 I remember I even cried because having a sibling was all I really wanted. Having a sibling was a big deal for me because I could finally be able to make my dreams come true having my baby sister.
4. Favorite festive food?
TAMALES!! Being Colombian and Guatemalan as well as having cousins who are half Mexican is always a blast at the table! So much food is put at the table but nothing beats tamales lol!
5. Favorite Christmas gift?
Favorite Christmas gift..is LIFE itself. After losing so many people, I am always thankful for the ones who are still in my life, and still alive. People think that electronics is everything, but for me its the gift of being able to breathe, spend Christmas with my family, and seeing everyone I truly love.
6. Favorite Christmas scent?
Best Christmas scent?! My mothers cooking!!!!!! There is nothing better then waking up to the smell of my moms food.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
After church, my family and I get together to sing all the Colombian Christmas songs as well as the Guatemalan songs. I love being able to get a piece of back home even if its just through a song.
8. What tops your tree?
A Star!!! I love how my mom takes good care of the first star she ever bought so that is always a must on the tree.
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received.
I never really asked for anything at all because we get what people give us that come from the heart. In our culture, it is rude to ask for something because it means we are not happy with what we have.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
My family, movies, and knowing that Jesus was born on Christmas day. We celebrate the gift of life, the love of Jesus, and we thank God for everything we have and for what is to come.
That is it for day one! I hope all of you have an amazing first day of December, and I challenge Step Up In Life to do the same tag!!! Make sure you also check out her blog! God bless you all and have a great day!
