Day 1 | 12 Days of Christmas Blogging


Hey guys!

I was tagged by Deanna from A Novel Glimpse and Ashley from Socially Awkward Bookworm. Since Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, I was super excited to do this tag. Thanks ladies!

The Rules:

  • Include the photo below in each blog post
  • You may start at any point in December
  • Use the topic supplied for the post of that day
  • Make sure all posts are in December, but they don’t have to be posted consecutively (lets face it it’s a busy time)
  • Nominate 3 people after each blog to start the challenge
  • Have fun!


Day 1: List your favorite things about Christmas

There are many things about Christmas that I love. Many things have changed over the years, but I will never forget all the Christmas traditions I grew up with!

Decorating for Christmas: this includes putting up the tree, hanging the stockings, decorating the doorways with wreaths and garlands, putting Christmas stickers on the mirrors, lighting the Christmas scented candles etc!

Christmas Baking: I loved baked goods, especially around Christmas time. This includes gingerbread, sugar cookies, apple and pumpkin pies, tarts, cupcakes, and shortbread!

Movies and TV Specials: Christmas movies are my favorite things to watch during the holidays. Home Alone and The Santa Clause are two of my favorites. I also enjoy when my favorite TV shows air their Christmas episode specials!

Watching the Santa Claus Parade: Every year Toronto has a Santa Claus parade that airs on TV. Me and my mom have our Christmas tradition, drinking our teas as we watch.

Wrapping Presents: This by far has to be my favorite thing to do. I also consider myself to be a professional wrapper.

Let me know what some of your favorite things to do around the holiday season! See ya tomorrow for Day 2!

Until next time,

Sig 4

  1. Decorating for Christmas definitely one of my favorite things to do. I love finding the best decorations and seeing the end result. It’s always fun! I love The Santa Clause so much! I make it a point to watch it every single year. It’ll never get old to me, haha. Wrapping presents is always fun and another things I love a lot about Christmas! πŸ™‚

      1. Right now she’s into Curious George’s Christmas. But that’ll probably change in the next few days knowing her mercurial moods and taste in movies.

        I tried getting her to watch the Nightmare Before Christmas with me and she was not down, lol, which is surprising because practically nothing scares this child. But admittedly NBC is scary-ish, I just thought she’d be more into it. She likes ghosts and crap like that so I was super shocked she didn’t like it right away. *shrugs*
