Christmas Favorites

Hello again, I’m going to be making a Christmas Favorites filled with my all-time favorite Christmas movies, songs, and food and why they are my personal faves. Let’s Get started.

Movies:

1.How the Grinch Stole Christmas: By far my all-time favorite Christmas movie. Either version is phenomenal, but the more recent, un-animated version comes out on top. It is hilarious and I relate to the Grinch so much. Also, it is almost never on, so when it is, it is definitely a treat.

2. Home Alone: This movie is the sole thing that taught me that it’s okay to laugh at other people’s pain.

3. The Polar Express: Such a classic. My favorite part was when the conductor cut out words into each of the children’s tickets and I remember I bought a hole punch to recreate those ticket… without success I might add.

4.Fred Claus:This was one of the worst movies ever, it was good. I haven’t seen it in ages but Vince Vaughn and a British actress whose name I can’t remember did too. The only thing I really remember is that at the end of the movie Vince Vaughn is in that woman’s bedroom and she says ‘Wh-Why are you in my bedroom?” and the way she said bedroom my sister and I still laugh at it and I have absolutely no idea why.

'Elf' Film - 2003

5. Elf: Everyone knows this is one of the best Christmas movies and there really is no arguing.

Songs:

1.Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is You: I can (and will) go hard to this song at any given point of the year. Watch me.

2. I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas: This is such a cute song and I loved it when I was little and still do.

3. Santa Claus is coming to town: I remember singing this song to myself when I was a youngster on Christmas Eve to try to get me to go to sleep. I was always afraid that if I didn’t fall asleep Santa wouldn’t come.

4. Last Christmas- I would always belt this song.. But I never gave anyone my heart so…

12days

5. The 12 Days of Christmas: I can still recite this entire song word for word and I only have public schools to blame for that.

Food:

1.Turkey. HAHAHAHAHAA JUST KIDDING. Eat mashed potatoes not animals :’) But with all seriousness mashed potatoes (any potatoes) make any occasion a holiday.

Candy cane

2. Candy Canes: They scream Christmas

3. Hot chocolate: Not really food but nothing is better than making some hot chocolate and curling up in front of the TV to a night long movie marathon.

4. Chocolate Peanut Butter balls: My aunt makes these amazing chocolate covered peanut butter balls

6. Sugar cookies: Christmas would not be complete without decorating sugar cookies and getting more sprinkles on the ground than on the cookies

 

Those are some of my Christmas favorites, what are yours?

Blogmas Day 1: I’m Doing Blogmas!

fotorcreatedblogmas

Happy December 1st!

So, since I am doing this really cool thing called ‘consistent blogging’ and since I blogged daily last month for #NaBloPoMo, I have decided to take a whack at doing Blogmas. I love Christmas time and the holidays in general (also I find the term Blogmas to be straight up adorable) so why not give it a go?

For those of you who don’t know what Blogmas is, you post daily from December 1st thru December 24th (sort of like an advent calendar but without the chocolate :/). You can also write a post every day for the entire month which is what I am planning on doing, however,  I’m not guaranteeing a post on the 24th or 25th because the 23rd-26th are extremely booked with parties and baking and trying to get some sleep but I will try.

I have made a list of some post ideas for myself (and for all of you too if you would like to join in on the Blogmas fun) so I may take ideas just from here but I may also just cover some other topics as I see fit. Feel free to steal any of these ideas (tag me in them if you do because I would love to read them) or give me some ideas of your own. Happy Blogmas!
