TAG | The Holidays!

I saw this fun and lighthearted tag on my friend Michele’s YouTube channel and thought it would make for the perfect Christmas Eve post.

I hope you enjoy it!

The holidays tag

1. Favorite Holiday Movie

My favorites are Home Alone, A Christmas Story, The Santa Clause, and Christmas Vacation.  I could probably tack about ten more onto this answer, but I’ll stop myself here.

(Fun fact: My friend Jen and I used to watch Home Alone all year long when we were roommates, and we know the entire movie by heart.  I’ve probably seen it over 100 times, but it just never gets old. Another fun fact: I used to have a crush on Macaulay Culkin when I was a little girl.)

2. Favorite Holiday Nail Color

I love deep burgundy reds during the holidays, but right now, I am wearing OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark and my husband keeps telling me that I look goth.  I tried to explain that it is a cult classic, but he just doesn’t get it.

3. Favorite Holiday Lip Product

This year, it has been Strawberry Lips by Red Apple Lipstick.

4. Favorite Holiday Ornament

You can actually see a whole entire post about my favorite ornaments here, and I just did a current one on my mommy blog yesterday!

5. Favorite Holiday Candle or Scent

This is a 3-way tie between Yankee Candle’s Balsam & Cedar, Fresh Balsam, and Winter (both by Bath & Body Works).

6. Favorite Holiday Starbucks Drink

I’m not really into the holiday drinks, but I do love getting the vanilla rooibos tea from Starbucks during the wintertime.

7. Faux or Real Tree

For years, we had an artificial tree, but this year, we got a real tree.  I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love having a real tree.  Everything about it is so Christmasy- especially the scent. I am actually going to miss watering it when Christmas is over.  It been like my little pet for the past few weeks.

8. Any Holiday Traditions?

There were so many traditions that I loved throughout childhood that I have carried on as an adult.  For example, we all get a new pair of Christmas pajamas every year.   We also get a new ornament each year that symbolizes the year.  This year, Michael got a Cookie Monster ornament, and Addison got one for baby’s first Christmas.  And MT and I have always exchanged one present on Christmas Eve which is really fun.

9. Favorite Holiday Song

Again, it is hard to choose just one because I love holiday music.  This probably isn’t a common favorite, but I absolutely love Christmas Canon by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.  I just think it is so beautiful!

I’d love to read some of your answers, so please leave them in the comments below.

Merry Christmas, to all those who celebrate!
