The lovely Luchessa tagged me for the Christmas Tag and so now it’s Boxing Day I think it might be a good time to do this!
1. Which holiday do you celebrate?
I celebrate a strange watered-down expat version of Christmas. I’ve been sad that I’ve not really felt Christmassy this year at all but I guess that’s partly my own fault…
2. What are you doing for the holidays this year?
Well I’m in Paris! I came here on Christmas Eve and I’ll be leaving on the 30th. I don’t have any plans other than to go to Disneyland with a colleague on he 27th. I just want to chill out and take in the magic of the city.
3. What’s your favourite holiday drink?
Uhm… I don’t think I have one. I had some nice beers with an old friend when I was back home and that was nice. I do like Starbucks’ Christmas offerings though!!
4. Candy cane of gingerbread men?
Hmm.. neither. These are very American!
5. Favourite Christmas song?
A Fairytale of New York by The Pogues. Every time.
6. What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received?
Last year for secret Santa at work I got a kind of game with jelly beans that were poo and sick and nappy flavoured. It was from someone I really cared about so I was kind of annoyed that they hadn’t bought me a gift that reflects on me personally… Unless I make people think I’m the kind that is into disgusting flavoured jelly beans…
7. Have you ever made a snowman?
Yes, of course! Though not this year. Maybe it’ll snow in Frankfurt again soon and I’ll be able to.
8. What’s your favourite winter fragrance?
Ugh, I don’t know. I know this is about perfume but let’s make it about room smells! I love Christmas edition plug in air fresheners! They are awesome! I pinched mum’s Glade orange scented candle when I was back home. I can’t wait to light it in my room.
9. What is top of your list for Christmas?
Well it’s over now, but I really wanted a new coat, and I got one! Mum bought me the one from Miss Selfridge that I really wanted, but the size was too small! I had the 14 but it didn’t fit over my chest so we went to change it and decided on one from Red Herring (not online) which fit perfectly in a size 12! Just goes to show that sizes are crazy.
10. What’s the most important thing to you during the holidays?
Seeing family, mainly. But also getting a good rest, putting on a few pounds and doing a bit of Christmas shopping!
I’m not going to tag other people as it’s after Christmas now. But if you want to do this tag then please feel free and link back to me so I can see it!
