The Christmas Tag - 2020

Hey readers,

This year, not only have I done 12 days of blogmas, but I have also been tagged for The Christmas Tag. How amazing is that? I want to say a big big thank you to Mind. Beauty. Simplicity for tagging me in my very first Christmas Tag. Please do check out her awesome blog. She's doing Blogmas right now and her posts are very interesting. She follows minimalism which is even better! Click on the link above to check out her blog, you won't regret it, I promise! 

The Christmas Tag Rules 

  • Put on your favorite Christmas playlist to listen while answering
  • Have a Christmas drink and/or snack while writing
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you and leave a link to their site
  • Answer the 10 original questions 
  • Answer the questions set by whoever tagged you
  • Ask 2 questions of your own
  • Tag 6 bloggers to take part

When do your decorations go up? 

I like to start early, I decorate on the first week of November. 

What film do you have to watch every festive season? 

Home Alone & Elf. They are a must watch. 

Who do you find hardest to buy presents for? 

I'd say it is mostly people who I don't know personally. I avoid giving gift cards during Christmas as it is not very personal (according to me) but sometimes, I am not sure what else to gift them. 

What did you leave out for Santa when you were a child?

I am going to be honest here, I don't think I left Santa anything (oops). 

Where did you spend last Christmas?

At home with my family. It is always nice to have a fun family time. 

Which Christmas song makes you cringe?

Baby, It's Cold Outside

If you could be a character in a Holiday Movie, who would it be & why? 

Based on my favorite Christmas movie, I am going to go with Kevin ( in home Alone 2). He gets to explore New York during Christmas time. How beautiful must that be! I love the part where he makes a wish to see his family in the Rockefeller Plaza. 

Have you ever had a white Christmas? 

Yes, I live in a country where we are lucky enough to have a winter season. I think I've always had a white Christmas (not exactly sure) but I am hoping for another one this year. 

What is the best Christmas gift you have ever received? 

I am a huge Friends fan, so the greatest gift I ever got was a bundle of a friends book, a mug, magnets & a phot clip holder (all friends themed) along with some chocolates given by my family. 

What is your favorite Christmas memory? 

Spending Christmas with my family while I visited India. It was a whole different experience.

The rule is to tag 6 bloggers but since I am kind of late for this tag as it is Christmas week, I encourage any blogger who's interested into taking part of this tag to participate. If you have never been tagged for this, please do participate, it is super fun and I would love to see your answers. 

Thank you, once again, to Mind.Beauty.Simplicity for this wonderful opportunity. Check out her blog by clicking the link here: Mind.Beauty.Simplicity 

As I am writing this, there is only 4 days left for Christmas. I want to wish you all a vey Merry Christmas. May you be blessed with lots of joy and love. Enjoy your time with family and have some good rest. Also, stay safe! 

~ Thank you for reading and happy blogging ~


  1. Interesting answers. Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and happy holidays :D

  2. I am a huge FRIENDS fan too. I love to binge watch all the “Christmas special” or the “Thanksgiving” episodes. They are so cosy. Plus Home Alone is a must watch during this time of the year.

    Love this post✨Excited to read more of you.

    1. Yaay! I love that :D Thank you so much, hope to see you again on my blog soon! :)

  3. It's always nice to read a little about the blogger behind the blog :-)

    - I don't like Elf (OK, it's stronger than that ... I hate it!)
    + But I do love Friends :-)

    Have a Merry Christmas

    1. Oh wow, thank you for your full honesty! You love friends though, so we can still be blogging buddies hahaa x) Merry Christmas to you too :D

  4. It's always great to find out more about my fellow bloggers! I loved your answers!

  5. I love reading Blogger tags and finding out more about my fellow bloggers. I'm a huge Friends fan too, so I'm with you on this. Although I must admit, the first week of November for decorations is a little too early for me!

    1. I got to know so many friends fans! This is lovely. Hahaa yepp! It is early but I love Christmas :D

  6. Loved reading all your answers! So festive. i also love the movies home alone and elf. still need to watch elf this year. maybe i will tonight :)

    1. That is awesome! I love it, I hope you like it :D Thank you so much.

  7. What a beautiful blog title/graphic! I love this tag - drink a Christmas beverage or snack & put on Christmas music? Neat! I have never seen Home Alone, but I do also love Friends - especially their last season.

    1. Thank you so much. That is very sweet! You should watch Home Alone, it is so fun. Yaay, another friends lover, that is awesome. :D

  8. I love reading blogging tags because they give readers a peak into the person behind the blog. Also, I am with you on purchasing gift cards. Unless it is specifically requested, I avoid getting gift cards because I view them as the 'easy way out'. Gifts mean so much to me as someone doing the gifting if I actually put in the effort to think about what the recipient would want or need.

    1. I know right, it is always fun getting to know more about a blogger's life. You get to know them more personally! That's right, it it interesting to find some great gifts for a friend or a family member when we know them well and have the perfect gift in mind, rather than just giving a gift card (unless you add them with another gift or in a gift basket. :)

  9. I've had a White Christmas sometimes, but it's not a guarantee where I live. This year we had a bit of snow, so that was kind of nice. I don't mind getting gift cards, but I get what you mean about wanting to GIVE something a bit more unique. I think sometimes gift cards to certain things can be pretty personal too though - like an experience gift!


    1. Awee that is nice! Yeah, I am glad I am not the only one who thinks so. Thank you so much. :)

  10. Wow, you decorate early. The first week of November? For me, it's after thanksgiving. I hate to clash the two because I love them equally. :)
