Blogmas 2017 Day 7: Christmas Q & A

Today’s post comes with help from Jamie of Don’t Give A Jam  who I ‘met’ during last year’s blogmas.   There are six quick questions with a seasonal flavour!
Q Do you own a Christmas sweater?
A I sure do! I have a few actually, can ya really have too many ugly festive sweaters? I’m even planning on DIYing my own this year, so that’s definitely going to be an adventure.
Q What is your favourite holiday food?
A My favorite holiday food is what my fam calls ham pickle. It’s basically just ham salad served in a little finger sandwich. We always have them during the holidays & it’s a great way to use the leftover ham from Christmas dinner!
Q What is your earliest Christmas memory?
A My earliest Christmas memory is my mum & dad looking sleepy, but happy in their festive pajamas. Sitting on the couch with their cups of coffee while my brother & I waited anxiously to start opening presents! I love how cozy Christmas morning always feels.
Q Do you have a holiday film you have to watch every year?  If so, what is it?
A Yes! Growing up we watched A Christmas Story  & National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation every year without fail. They’re some of my dad’s faves & it just doesn’t feel like Christmas without watching them!

Q What are you planning to do, or what do you normally do on Boxing Day (26th December)?
A I took the day off work, so I will most likely be spending time with family.
Q …and…are you making a costume for your hamster for Christmas like you did for Halloween?  
A My hamster Kyrie is absolutely getting a Christmas costume! The people have asked for it & I really wanna see him in a santa hat, so it’s happening & I’m pretty excited.
