Christmas hangover? Hahaha! Nah! I am actually trying to move on, as hubby and I had only a few days to spend together during the holidays....
Kath of Dear Kitty Kittie Kath tagged me the day after Christmas but I was too busy spending time with my Prince Charming and my own Santa Claus... =D
Here are my answers! I'll do it quick as I have another tag to work on... ^__^
What’s your favourite Christmas colour?
Red is too cliche, but it does remind me a lot of Christmas. I love seeing red, green, silver, gold and white during Christmas season. It seems to festive when I am surrounded with stuff with those colors. ^__^
Do you like to stay in your PJs’ or dress up for Christmas?
When I was younger, my Mom would dress us up in very pretty dresses on Christmas day. As we got older, and mom and dad parted ways, we only mind dressing up for our family's reunion, which is every 24th of December, Christmas Eve. Nowadays, If I don't have work on Christmas Eve (like last 2012), I would still do the same - dress up if I'm available and go meet my family and relatives. Last Christmas Day, hubby and I decided to stay home, eat spaghetti and sleep all day, wearing simple house clothes. Haha! =D
I'll only dress up if we'll go somewhere... =D
If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be?
We don't have kids yet, so, I'll buy my hubby a present! Gundam? Shoes? Books? Name it, I'll buy it! Unfortunately, Jagi, - I know you're reading this - It's NOT Christmas anymore! Bwahahaha!!! XD
Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
When we were younger, we used to open presents on Christmas Day. Now, I still try to resist opening presents to save them for Christmas Day but there's someone else who's more excited in opening my presents (and even the parcels that I randomly receive!)... Guess who... Kekekeke~! =D
Have you ever built a ginger bread house?
Nope! Not yet...
What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
Before Christmas breaks, a lot of things come into my mind - I want to do plenty of things but I have very little time. I wanted to see my family and friends and bond with them. Unfortunately, hubby and I are also deprived of time, so we end up locking ourselves in our room, sleeping, goofing with each other, watching movies all in the comfort of our tiny bedroom... ^__^
Any Christmas wishes?
Aside from the Christmas wishlist I had here, all I could ever wish for is to spend more time with my loved ones, most importantly my parents. They are not getting any younger. =(
Favourite Christmas smell?
There's something in the air that tells me its Christmas. I can't describe it but I love that smell. When I go out every morning during December, I try to inhale it in, filling my lungs with that familiar smell. Aside from that, I love the smell of Christmas Ham cooking in pineapple sauce... ^__^
Favourite Christmas meal or treat?
I love eating sweets, so whenever we go to our family reunion, I eat less rice or pasta and devour a lot of leche flan and salad! I also love Christmas Ham and lately, I missed eating my grandmother's yummy, cheesy and spicy caldereta!
What are you doing for the holidays this year?
I spent time with my hubby and family. I took advantage of the little vacation we had, so, I decided to meet hubby at Megamall on the 24th of December, after his shift. We roamed around the mall with our little companion, hubby's two-year old sister. The three of us looked like we are a family. Teehee! After that, we headed to my grandmother's house, only a few blocks away from Megamall. ^__^
Candy cane or Gingerbread men?
Candy cane. Because I have a sweet tooth! =D
What's your favourite Christmas song?
Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" reminds me of our former Company's Christmas Party last 2009. =D
Hubby, keep quiet, okay? =D
Hubby, keep quiet, okay? =D
Have you ever made a snowman?
Not yet. There's no snow in the Philippines. =(
What is your favourite winter fragrance?
Hmmm... None. But I have a Bath & Body Works Body Lotion that smells so Christmas-y. It's a Limited Edition and it's phased out. It's called "Nutcracker Sweet" and true to its name, it really smells saccharine! It smells so sweet and Christmas-y that I feel like being chased by ants after slathering it on. =D
What is at the top of your list this Christmas?
Although I made a wishlist, I wanted an external hard drive or a new laptop. I want to ask for a house of our own but that would have to wait. For now, I have to be more realistic. ^__~
What is most important to you about the holidays?
Being able to spend time with my loved ones, especially my husband. I always feel that time is too short for the two of us. I always want to be with him. This could be because we are so dedicated and absorbed in our jobs... I miss you hubby!!! ♥♥♥
Ending this post with a photo of me and my grandpapa, whom we call "Papa Groovie"... ^__^
I wonder how your Christmas was, so, I'm tagging everyone! ^__^
That's it! I have to go to sleep now. I have to wake up early again tomorrow. Friday, come to me!!! ^__^
Another tag response coming up!!! ^__^
