Whenever it is hard to think of posts, I enjoy looking for tags. So it was fun when I found this tag over at Kira Jeanette. For someone who loves BOTH Christmas and books, I was automatically interested. Lets start
What is your favorite Christmas scene in a book?
There are too many to pick from, but still have to choose one. The most recent Christmas scenes I discovered was from The Nevermoor series. The city of Nevermoor has one of the most magical and amazing Christmas day- starting on Christmas Eve. The battle between The Yule Queen and Saint Nick is wonderful to witness- they even promise something different for Christmas. Saint Nick (burning fire in fireplace and a stocking of gifts) and Yule Queen (White Christmas). Of course, this is pretty magical in the first book- considering it is Morrigan’s first Christmas in Nevermoor.
Do you have any Christmas book traditions?
I haven’t actually created one yet, but if I did most likely it would be reading A Christmas Carol every year
Do you prefer to get presents of book vouchers or books?
Books, for sure! I am a bookworm after all, so of course I would keep on wanting new books.
Do you give books as presents?
That depends, to be honest—–as in who I am giving them to.
What bookish item is on your Christmas wishlist?
Well, that would be books; for the most part, I don’t want any other book items
What 3 books would you love Santa to have in his sack for you?
I can’t actually think of 3 books at the moment; so can’t really answer
Fake Christmas tree or real Christmas tree?
Real- my family has always done real Christmas trees. It is always fun buying them and ending with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate. The next step is lights and ornaments and ending with the gifts.
What’s your favorite thing about Christmas?
Seriously, I don’t really have a #1 favorite thing about Christmas. I mean, it is my favorite Holiday after all.
What Christmas book would you recommend?
I do love multiple Christmas books, but I do have a favorite. My favorite Christmas book is “A Christmas Carol”. It is actually the first story in “A Christmas Treasury”, which is another amazing book to recommend.
What dish on your Christmas menu are you most looking forward to?
Zebra Cake, of course. It is my dad’s desert dish.
When do you open your Christmas presents?
I open my stocking up first (the gifts in those are what I consider Santa gifts)- only because it is the easiest to open. So, the stocking gifts technically are my first Christmas presents. I still have to wait for the rest of my family to wake up before it is time to open up Christmas presents, so later in the morning.
What’s your favorite Christmas song?
Not again- too many songs. But I can tell you my favorite moment in the Candlelight Christmas Eve Service- “Silent Night”- the lights in church go light and candles get lit. Those candles were given to us at the beginning of the service for this particular moment.
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?
This would be amazing to witness- but due to living in North Carolina, it is hard to come across a White Christmas
