| TBT XMAS | Christmas Memories | Blogmas 2016

Christmas memories are some of the best memories. They're always filled with plenty of joy and cheer. Today, I'm doing a different type of post, something I don't normally do. I'm going to be sharing with you some of my favorite Christmas memories and some Christmas traditions I used to or currently have. I hope you enjoy!




Memories:

1. Growing up, my mom would always pick out the Christmas gifts for me and my siblings. One year, when I was about 6 or 7, my dad gave us gifts that he picked out himself. The gift my dad gave me was the Super Mario game for the Game Boy Color and I loved it so much just because I knew it came from him.

2. Every year starting in 6th grade, I would ask my mom for a pair of UGG boots and every single year my mom would say no. I wanted them so badly, everyone had them. My mom actually surprised me with a pair when I was in 9th grade and I was ecstatic. My freshman year of high school was tough, I was going through a lot with my family and I lost a few friends and this made me so happy. 

3. I've been obsessed with giving gifts to others since I was little. I always wanted to pick stuff out and wrap it myself. I remember, when I was around 8 or 9, I decided I wanted to give my siblings some presents for Christmas, but I had no money. I thought it would be a good idea to give them my own old toys and wrap them. They didn't really like it.

4. When my boyfriend and I moved into our apartment together four years ago, we finally got to have our own Christmas. That year, he surprised me with a gift certificate to get my hair done, because he knows how much I love it. The best part was, he wrapped the gift certificate in a box and made me unwrap it.


Traditions:

1. Every Christmas morning we would get bagels to eat, my favorite breakfast.

2. My brother and sisters would always wake up super early Christmas morning, and out of all the days to sleep in, my parents chose Christmas. We obviously had to wait until they woke up to open our presents.

3. My siblings and I would pick out which spot in the living room was "ours" where we would open our presents. This became our "spot" every year.

4. Stockings always had to be opened before the actual presents.

5. I always watch Olive The Other Reindeer before Christmas, it's my favorite movie.



Those are just a few of my favorite Christmas memories and traditions. I didn't want to include too many, it would have been way too long!
