Tis' the season for a Christmas Tag

by - Tuesday, December 02, 2014

Finally catching up with blogs today when I came across a Christmas tag by A Glass of Ice so of course, I just had to spend some time to do up a post cause.... it is all about Christmas - so why not! :)
I tag - Every and anyone who comes across this,

What are your favourite Christmas movies?
Ooooo I love Christmas movies !!! 'Home Alone', 'Serendipity', 'Love Actually' ahhhhh it is a never ending list !

2. Do you open your Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Sometimes I open 1 present on Christmas eve..... sometimes. Everything else will be at the crack of dawn Christmas morning !! :) 

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I have a lot actually but the most memorable one would be when my brother and myself woke up to see our presents strung together in a row leading to the play room, which we eagerly followed to be surprised by 2 bikes. 

4. Favourite festive food?
I know this will be a "wha?" to y'all but it would have to definitely be pastelles ! Mmmmm yum ! I can't wait for Christmas now !

[Trinidadian pastelles are small meat-filled cornmeal pies stuffed with meat, fish, soya or vegetables seasoned with fresh herbs and flavoured with raisins, olives and capers wrapped and steamed in a banana leaf. They are traditionally prepared and eaten during the Christmas season. It is believed that they were introduced by Spanish colonizers who ruled between the late 15th and early 18th centuries]

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I don't have a favourite Christmas gift, I kind of just appreciate everything equally.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I love the scent of Eucalyptus in the house during Christmas. mmmm That reminds me - I need to get some. 

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
I actually have to work every Christmas eve to sometimes 8pm, but when I get home the house is open allowing friends and family to come by. Christmas music fills the home, as well as parang, the ham is in the oven, and my Dad always use to be there greeting me with his scotch and coconut in his hand in one of the most joyous moods. He was the highlight of our Christmas celebrations and so although it wouldn't be the same, we would still carry it on as if he were still here. He would want us to. :)

8. What tops your tree?
An angel, tho we haven't put up a tree this year. 

9. As a child what was the one extravagant gift you always asked for but never received?
I actually am blank for this one.... maybe I just don't remember right now. lol

10. What is the best thing about Christmas for you?
Being with my family and loved ones and watching everyone have a joyful time. 
Nothing warms my heart more than seeing people be happy and jolly.
