Tag, You're It! Christmas Edition


My blogger friend Lanaya, from Raising Reagan started this game of tag to learn more about the holiday traditions of her blogging friends.  You are supposed to ask five bloggers five questions about their traditions and then carry on the process. I was recently tagged by Tiffani at Tiffani Goff at Home. She has asked me these five questions:




QUESTION 1
What is your favorite Christmas tradition? 
I really really love pie. No, I mean really, guys! I don't necessarily like baking them, but I love eating them. My grandma and now my sister bake the most delicious pies at the holidays and I always look forward to that every year. My grandma actually gives me pies for my presents! Like wrapped! Seriously.
QUESTION 2
Do you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
I'm super lame. I don't even do a tree or really many decorations in general. I usually visit other people for Christmas, so I've become lazy and just enjoy their hard work instead.

QUESTION 3
Do you do a lot of Christmas baking? 
Nope. Like I said, I'm a lazy, pie eating good for nothin'! I will help out, but I'm not usually the one to do all the baking for the holidays.

QUESTION 4
Do you put lights on the outside of your house and if so do you do it yourself or hire someone?
Nope, again. Wow, you all are just rolling in the holiday cheer now huh? Sorry. I haven't had Christmas lights since I was a kid. I also haven't ever lived in a house after getting married, so stringing up a whole apartment would get a little tiresome (and dangerous), I think. ;-)

QUESTION 5
When do you open all your presents and do you let the kids open any before Christmas?
Welp, I don't have any kids, so all the presents are MINE! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We usually open them at different times but mostly after meals.

Here are the five bloggers that I would love to tag!
Shawn at The Divvy Spot
Kelly at Blart Blog

Here are my questions for you ladies:
1. What is your favorite holiday dish?
2. Do you dress up for the holidays or wear PJ's, etc.?
3. What is your favorite holiday song?
4. What is your favorite holiday movie?
5. If you could travel anywhere, where would you love to spend your holiday?
