Hi! I am back for day two of the 12 days of Christmas blogging challenge! I’ll link at the end of this post to my first day, so you can check that out if you missed it or just curious what my favorite things about Christmas are!

Day Two: Favorite Christmas tradition new or old.

I don’t really have too many Christmas traditions, to be honest. I do like to watch certain Christmas movies every single year, which I listed in another blog post. I’ll save the movie talk for the movie topic though!

I do enjoy driving around different neighborhoods and looking at everyone’s Christmas lights that they decorated their homes with. It’s always so fun seeing how creative everyone can get, especially with Christmas lights! I love seeing the houses that go all out and crazy with it. I know there are a few TV shows that airs throughout the month of December just solely about houses that are decorated with so many lights and decorations.

I don’t think I could personally ever be as creative as some of those people out there with thousands and thousands of lights on their houses. Or the ones that the lights “dance” to Christmas themed music. It can get pretty intense, but so cool. I remember in Cape Coral where I used to live they had (I think still do) this event going on that shows people’s boats all decked out in Christmas lights and holiday decorations. The boats would parade around the water with all their lights and that was fun!

So one of my Christmas traditions is driving (or walking too) around neighborhoods just looking at Christmas decorations. I love the colors, the decorations, and it’s just plain fun! 😀

If you click the picture, then it’ll take you to a website showcasing six other houses just like this one below!


What is one of your favorite Christmas traditions? Let me know!

Feel free to do this tag and link me to your posts! I would love to see everyone’s 12 days of Christmas blogging posts! As promised, linked down below is my day one of this Christmas blogging challenge and also my Friday Finds post that I did earlier today of the books that I added to my TBR this week. 🙂

Day One||12 Days of Christmas Blogging.

I hope you have a great day! ❤



Friday Finds #40.


FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). Hosted by A Daily Rhythm*All linked to Goodreads*

Hi 🙂

It’s Friday again, yay! It was another one of those crazy busy weeks for me at work, but it helped with making the week go by fast. I also didn’t get very much reading done this week (so sad), because Jessica Jones has been taking over my life. This Netflix show is SOO good and I am not really a fan of Marvel, so that tells you something! It also has David Tennant in it and I love that man more than words, so there’s that. Warning: if you ever want to read a book again, do NOT watch Jessica Jones. But no, you totally should go watch Jessica Jones! 😛

Let’s talk about books though! I added tons of books to my TBR this week, but I am going to share with you ten of those tons. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick
Dreamology by Lucy Keating
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
Everland by Wendy Spinale
Black Five by J. Lynn Bailey

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith
Demon Road by Derek Landy
Asleep by Krystal Wade

All of these sound quite amazing and interesting. I am digging the book covers for them all as well! Have you seen A Christmas Story? You know, Red Ryder BB gun, you’ll shoot your eye out kid? Sure you have, it only plays for 24 hours on Christmas. I’m sure you caught a glimpse about a hundred times in your lifetime so far. 😛


What I want for Christmas…

I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle! Ohhhh fuuudge! JUST KIDDING, more like all the money in the world, so I can buy all of these beautiful books.

Have you added any new books to your TBR this week? Let me know and link me to your posts!

I’ll be posting my day two of the Christmas blogging challenge later today. Two blog posts from me in one day, that’s my little early Christmas gift to you! 😛

I hope you have an amazing Friday!
