This is the first post in the Countdown To Christmas blogseries! It’s a taglist as you can see and there were some hard questions involved! I hope you like my answers and be sure to leave a comment below. So here we go:
- What’s your favourite holiday movie?
That would be Wuthering Heights, with Tom Hardy as Heathcliff. He is one of my favorite actors.
Although I am not a fan of tearjerkers, I like this film. It’s so dramatic and I mean: have you seen Tom Hardy…
What are your favourite Christmas colours?
I’ll go with red. It’s a colour that has a lot of different meanings. It’s the colour of Love and Passion and Christmas. Our Christmas tree is also decorated with red ornaments.
Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?
Since I have to study on Christmas day itself, I just stay in my PJ’s. No need to dress up fancy for my coursebooks. But on Christmas eve, me and my family usually have dinner with my in-laws so then I dress up! And then I go all the way… Fancy hairdo, make-up and a lovely dress.
If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be?
I would buy a present for my dad. It’s been a very difficult year for him and he deserves a big present for all the work he has done for me and my sister (my mom isn’t feeling well and hasn’t been able to go to work). So he has had a tough year. I hope 2015 will be better for him and my mom.
5. Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
On Christmas eve! I absolutely have no patience and I am a terrible curious person, so I couldn’t stand to have to wait until the next day. Ever since I was little, I couldn’t wait until 12 o’clock. I would hoover around the tree, guessing what present was mine. I drove my parents crazy!
6. Have you ever built a Ginger Bread House?
Sadly enough, no. Maybe when I have kids later, I can do that. But in Belgium, it’s not that big of a tradition.
7. What do you like to do during your Christmas holidays?
I have to study 😦
I’m currently studying History and English to become a teacher and in Belgium we have exams in January… So I’ll know what to do with my time.
But if I would had a holiday, I would read! My pile of books ‘To Read’ is growing and I am falling behind….
8. Any Christmas Wishes?
I hope I pass all my exams! But that’s really up to me isn’t?
9. Favourite Christmas smell?
Cinnamon! I really love that spice. I drink cinnamon tea, I put cinnamon on my apple cake…. I am a cinnamon addict. I even have a candle with cinnamon smell….
10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat?
I am a big fan of Pomme Macaire. I don’t know if this is a typical Belgian thing, so maybe you have heard of it. We usually eat Pomme Macaire on Christmas day, with a roast or something like that. For desert I’ll go with Chocolat au moeilleux. But who wouldn’t?
