Fun and Random Christmas Q&A

Are you in the Holiday Spirit yet? While I was all hyped end of September when I started this article I have a hard time getting into the right mood now. So music is playing, candles are burning and I finally finish up this post. By the end I hope I will be ready.

I came across this little game last year on Emily’s blog (or was it somewhere else?) and already knew I had to go ahead and share some version of it with you.

Real or Fake Tree? Always and forever a real Christmas tree. I take it even further and say only real candles too. Who is with me?

Favorite Christmas cookie? 
Oh this one is a tough one. But I believe the one recipe I have been doing the last years is the one I posted here: Spicy Chai Cookies . Unfortunately I haven’t gotten around to making some this year. Maybe I find time to do so today.

Home or Travel for Christmas?
 Home-Travel. I have only spend 2 Christmas away from family: 1999 when I was in the USA and 2006 when I spend Christmas Eve with my new Boyfriend (now husband). After that we always spend it with my parents t my grandpas estate. So it’s kinda travel home.
But I feel like we should start our own little thing.


White or Multi-color lights? 
Never ever coloured. But electrical lights are rare in this household. As I said I am a real candle kinda girl.

Christmas cards? 
Yes. I always take time to make and write cards. Usually about 20-30 cards depending a bit. I love sitting down and doing this. It gives me time to reflect but I also see it as a tiny Christmas gift to people I otherwise wouldn’t stay in touch with.

Favorite gift received and/or given? Oh man, this is hard. I really don’t know. I guess all photo-related stuff is good. For over 10 yers I am making a calendar to give to my parents. And one of my favorite presents was a lens i got by Mr. 🖤.

Stockings or No stockings? 
No stockings. However we do have some stocking decorations we sometimes put up.

Christmas pajamas?
Is that a thing? Thinking about it I now want one.

Favorite Christmas song?
“Joy to the World” and “Hark the Herald Angel Sing” This will be on repeat throughout the season and I might sing a long very loudly when no one is a round. One song I can not stand is “Silent Night” – no matter if German or English.

Favorite holiday tradition?
Check out last years post where I wrote all about it. On top of that I also like the entire Christmas Eve tradition at my parents house.

Early shopper or last minute?
No shopper – if I have a say in it. To be honest Mr. ♥ is the better shopper so I hope he does it. And he does it online and slightly in advance. I pick stuff up in between if I am totally certain someone love this. But usually I am not certain. I don’t like giving gifts.

Favorite Christmas movie? 
Oh this is tough. Mhm probably “Love Actually” but I am always on the look out for new ones so please spill.

Favorite holiday beverage?
Hot Elderberry Juice.

Now join the fun and let me know your answers.
Happy holidays, Tobia

  1. Hello Tobia,

    verry merry Christmas to you and your family. I just read your post. And, uh, yes, a real tree is even better than a fake one. Even if I only use the fake one. Because in our family it is the tradition to put the tree in the apartment and decorate it on 24th of December. Since I mostly went to my parents on the 23rd of Decemeber, I’ve decided to use a fake one, which I put into my apartment a bit earlier. But don’t want to spend money on something I don’t really have or see. I can’t remember, that we used real candles. We always have white electric candels. At least, I guess it is better, I just remember one year, when I set the living room twice. First, one of our candle houses burned the cotton. While I tried to fight it, I burned myself. Then few days later, I decided to burn the advent wrest instead of the candel. ^^ I am with you. Silent night is not the prettiest christmas song. Even if I heard few days ago, that 90 % of the Germans named this one as their favorite. I can’t understand. But, I have to be honest, my favorite one is actually “Last Christmas” from Wham.

    Enjoy the last day of Christmas.

  2. Christmas pajamas definitely is a thing in the US because of Christmas morning… but we don’t have any LOL

    Do you actually have a real tree with real candles? I remember my parents used to do that but it’s been a long time, because you have to be so careful with real candles. Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

    1. Yes I do as do my parents. Nothing ever happened. Of course I have a look and you don’t have the tree lit all the time as you probably would with electrical ones. I like it more. Hope your Christmas was good too
