Eat brussel sprouts or cauliflower cheese ?
I used to hate cauliflower but have been eating it for a few years now. I honestly love vegetables but would rather eat brussel sprouts. I actually eat them all the time, I just mix them with other veggies.
Have twinkling lights or still lights?
Twinkling lights are cute when you don’t look at them for long, after a while I just want them to stop. So if I had to look at them around me I’d prefer still lights, I feel like it’s more calm and nice.
Eat gingerbread or Ferraro Roche?
Ferrero Roche for sure! I hate gingerbread! For Christmas I love decorating girderbread houses or cookies but I don’t want to eat them.
Open your Christmas presents with only immediate family or with all of your family?
For Christmas we gather with my whole family, we’re about 30 people, on Christmas Eve; we watch movies or play games with my cousins. We say a prayer at midnight, eat turkey and then open presents. My aunt calls out the names and most of us open the presents in front of everyone but I always go hide in a corner lol I usually open them in front of my closest cousins and my brother. So I can honestly say I prefer to do it only with immediate family, I get nervous when I have tons of people watching my reaction. But even when we celebrate it with my boyfriend’s parents on Christmas day, I still get a bit anxious about opening the presents in front of them. My first choice would be to open them alone lol but I don’t feel as uncomfortable if I’m only in front of my parents and brother.
Cook Christmas dinner for the whole family or don’t eat Christmas dinner at all?
If I had to, I’d probably make the turkey but I’d cheat and buy the rest of the food. Most of us eat the turkey on a sandwich anyways so it makes it easier as I wouldn’t need much stuffing or side dishes.
Have a real Christmas tree or a fake Christmas tree?
I have never had a real Christmas tree! Back home there is no such thing as having a real tree. I only realized that people actually do that when my aunt told me they did it years ago, I thought it was only in movies haha. We’ve been in Canada for about 9 years now but still have never done it. I hope that when I have my own house, I can do it at least once just to experience it.
Use blue, yellow and white lights or multi coloured lights?
Hmm..I think they bought look nice but I think id go for multi coloured lights, specially if it’s outdoor lights, they just look super festive.
Eat mince pies or Christmas cake?
I don’t think I’ve ever tried minced pie, I had to Google it for a picture and description, it doesn’t really sound appetizing to me. And I think Christmas cake refers to fruit cake, right? Haha if that’s what it means then I’d pick Christmas cake. My boyfriend’s mom makes fruit cake every year for Christmas and I love it!
Wake up at 6am or 10am?
10 am, since our tradition is to celebrate Christmas at midnight we end up going to bed at around 4 am and we have already opened presents before Christmas morning. We usually don’t do anything on actual Christmas day with my family, I’ve had to work the last couple of years or me and David go over to his mom’s for dinner.
Drink champagne or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate. I don’t really drink very often, I do sometimes have one or two drinks at home or drink socially but very rarely. I do enjoy a cup of hot chocolate in the cold weather though!
Eat Heros or Roses?
I love candy in general so I don’t really have a preference. Roses maybe?
Get a puppy for Christmas or a kitten?
I’m not into the idea of getting neither for now but if someone was to give me one, I think id go for a puppy. We never had pets growing up cause my mom wouldn’t let us. I have 4 guinea pigs now but hopefully one day we will get a puppy or a kitten.
Watch Elf or Home Alone?
Don’t hate me but I’m not crazy about neither…I know! I think they’re just okay movies and I do enjoy watching them for the holidays just cause theyre classics. If I had to pick, I’d watch Elf.
Listen to Christmas songs all year round or never hear a Christmas song again?
Ah..but I love Christmas songs! I think I’m going for listening to them all year round, only because they’d be like any other songs which means I can skip them and only choose to listen to them and enjoy them during the holidays.
Wake up early and get the best boxing day sale goodies or stay warm and cosy in bed wearing your new Christmas pjs?
I’d rather stay in bed. I hate going to crowded busy places, so boxing day and black friday sales are not for me. On those days there’s line ups to go in to some stores, one for change rooms if they’re even open and another one to pay..no thanks. Plus most sales stay around for a week, so I’d much rather stay home warm and cosy.
