Christmas Tag

I've always loved tags. I think it is a great way to get to know stuff about people that you wouldn't have known otherwise.

So I've decided to create a short tag of my own. A Christmas tag. Here goes!

1. What is your most favorite thing about Christmas time? I love spending time with my family and Christmas is one of those times that we set all else aside and just spend time being together, and remembering all that Christ has done for us.

2. Do you enjoy decorating for Christmas? I don't really care for decorating in itself, because I'm not the most creative person. I like helping other people that ARE creative and of course I LOVE the feeling when everything is decorated.

3. What food do you enjoy eating most in the Christmas season? It is a tradition for us to have my Grama's homemade fried perogies every Christmas meal. We don't get perogies very often, and I REALLY like perogies :)

4. What traditions do you have on and around Christmas Day?
- We usually spend Christmas with my mom's side of the family (whoever is around that is. This year it will just be my grandparents, my uncle and our family), and we will spend a night or two together (sometimes we do it at our house, sometimes we will go other places, this year it will be at our place).
- Christmas Eve we always have chocolate fondue with fruit and (ever since it has come out) we watch "The Nativity Story".
- Ever since we have had our rink, we have played hockey on Christmas Day.

5. Do you usually have lots of family gatherings? Nope... unless 2 is lots :) 

6. Who do you usually spend Christmas day with? My mom's side of the family (once again... whoever is around) and my fam.

7. What is your favorite Christmas song? "Welcome to our World"

8. What is your favorite Christmas recipe? Kona Truffles

9. What is you favorite Christmas memory? I have SO many favorite memories, but here is one that came off the top of my head.
One year for Christmas we went to a cabin for a couple of nights with Mom's family. We played a game where we each had a candy cane "token" and we couldn't say the word "Christmas" or we would have our candy cane taken away by the person who heard us say it. Whoever had the most candy canes in the end won the game.
It was REALLY hard, but also LOTS of fun and had cause for LOTS of laughing.

10. When you think of Christmas, what do you think of? Family fun, hockey, Christmas goodies, hot chocolate, warm fires, laughter, Christmas lights, and most importantly... the birth of Christ.

And to kick it off... whoever else wants to do it!

Great idea Jen! I'll do the tag but I'm quite sure that a lot of my answers will be very close to your's, seeing as we are sisters in law after all. :)But hey, I could just use your answers, joking, I'll be a good girl! :)
Love you!
