Meet me on Monday: Christmas Edition



1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper!
I love wrapping them up. You get to put more love in it than simply placing them inside gift bags. Also, you get to be more creative. I don't care if it's torn apart after. As long as they look really good, I' happy. :)

2.Real or artificial tree?
I'm from the Philippines, and that should probably explain a lot!

3.When do you put your tree up?
As early as September, IF possible
Yes, and it gets too dusty come Christmastime! But this year, we had it up by November. 
YES, we're a bunch of excited people!

4.When do you take your tree down?
After the Three Kings Festival (Epiphany), which us January 6
We try to take all decorations down on or before that. But we had one set of decorations that are always there - yes, year round. HAHA!

5.Do you like eggnog?
I've been reading a lot about eggnog on my timeline in Facebook recently, all from my non-Filipino friends. It has probably something to do with Christmas, which I am not aware of.

Well, this is the eggnog I know, and YES, I like eggnog. ;-)

6.Do you have a nativity scene?
We wanted to, but we never had time to shop. So, no. We did have in our previous house, but that was owned by my grandmother. :)

7.Favorite Christmas Movie?
It's a Wonderful Life. 

It really makes me cry every time. I love it! Oh, George Bailey!

8.Favorite Christmas cookie?
Okay, limme change the question to "Favorite Cookie".. Chocolate chips! 
Christmas or not, it's my fave. Better if there's mint!

9.Where will you eat Christmas dinner?
At home. 
With my Nanay (mom), and Brother. My Tatay (dad) will still be at work and he'll only be able to join us for New Year's. So well, Christmas dinner will be at home, with family.

10.Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?
I wanted to show you our tree but then there's some minor construction going on at home right now so I better not stand there and take a pic. Those guys might think I'm taking a picture of them!

11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
Traffic! Everywhere!!!

12.Do you like Fruitcake?
It's hard, and well, I dunno! The rhum, or whatever it is mixed with it doesn't appeal to me. If someone gives us fruitcakes, we end up just taking a bite from time to time. It'll reach Valentine's. :)

13.What are you most excited about the holidays?
Staying at home, wrapping and giving presents and of course, getting them!

14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Eve. We can't wait!

15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
I still haven't made/bought my gifts. I'll probably be wrapping until New Year's!
Merry Christmas!!
6 Days before Christmas!
