Day One||12 Days of Christmas Blogging.



I was tagged by Deanna from A Novel Glimpse to do 12 Days of Christmas Blogging! Thanks for tagging me, Deanna! The challenge was created by StephJ from Scale Simple.

The Rules:

  • Include the photo below in each blog post
  • You may start at any point in December
  • Use the topic supplied for the post of that day
  • Make sure all posts are in December, but they don’t have to be posted consecutively (lets face it it’s a busy time)
  • Nominate 3 people after each blog to start the challenge
  • Have fun!

Day 1: List your favorite things about Christmas.

It’s no surprise that I love Christmas time so much! I am pretty sure my Instagram (heyyitsashley) account speaks for itself! 😛

  • Christmas decorations. I love decorating my apartment for Christmas. I love colorful Christmas lights the best.
  • Christmas trees. Decorating the Christmas tree is always fun and there was one year where I had three different Christmas trees in my tiny apartment, lol
  • Christmas cookies. GIVE ME ALL THE COOKIES! I am a sucker for cookies in general, but I swear Christmas cookies just always taste the best. I also love the shapes like trees, snowmen, and Santa.
  • Christmas movies. I have a pretty decent sized list of Christmas movies that I watch every single year and then there are some that I randomly will catch on the Hallmark channel. I love a good Christmas movie. See my list over here.
  • Spending time with my family. Pretty much my entire family lives next door to me, but I still like spending holiday time with them as well doing Christmasy type things. My cousin Michelle also has a Christmas party every year, so it’s nice getting to see my extended family as well.
  • Wrapping paper and wrapping gifts. I really enjoy wrapping gifts and I love finding the cutest wrapping paper for the gifts. It’s definitely one of my favorite things.
  • Finding the perfect Christmas gifts. I am always so good at finding the best gifts for everyone for Christmas and I love giving more than receiving. This year hasn’t been my best year though, sadly. I can’t think of anything to get anyone!

What are some of the things you love about Christmas? Let me know!
