I know it's the 22nd of December but I don't have that many confessions to make...
Anyway, let's get on with it:
- I have never owned a Christmas jumper.
- That's right. Considering my first few Christmases were in the Philippines, I've never owned a Christmas jumper before and I don't have one for this year either. I might consider getting one next year.
- I hate mince pies.
- I don't know what it is about them but they make me feel sick. I don't mind people eating them around me but I don't want to eat one ever again.
- I have never had eggnog at Christmas.
- I assume that that's an American thing since I never really see it in shops or anything. But, I would like to try a glass one day.
- I have never had brussel sprouts during Christmas dinner.
- They're horrible. Why would you do that to yourself?
- I believed in Santa until I was around 12.
- I just wanted to meet him. That's all.
- I hate taking photos in front of my presents.
- Doing that makes me feel a bit conceited and selfish. I really don't like it when my parents tell us to stand/sit behind our presents for a photo. I try to avoid them as much as I can. I'd take a picture with the present they gave me but I won't with anyone else's.
- I'm usually the last one to wake up in the family.
- Everyone wakes up early on Christmas so they can open they're presents straight away. I would rather lie down in bed for an extra 2 hours and relish whatever warmth there is left under my duvet. It's cold during winter mornings and Christmas is no exception.
- I spend the whole day in my pyjamas.
- From all of the people I know, I am one of the few that don't dress up for Christmas. I will sit on the sofa in my pyjamas for the whole day and watch films. If there is a party then I will dress up. If the party is at home then forget it; the people we invite are usually really close family friends and they know what I'm like already.
- I honestly think that the amount and the message on a Christmas card reflects how much you like the person you give it to.
- I think really carefully about what I write in my Christmas cards. I don't like seeing them bare and empty.
- I don't like Christmas pudding.
- Again, it tastes horrible.
- I can't eat Christmas turkey unless it's drowned in gravy.
- It's really dry!
- I always break out the Zumba DVDs after Christmas Day.
- I have to lose all of weight from the food somehow.
- I am one of those people that text "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to all of my friends.
- Every. Single. Year.
So, those are my Christmas confessions. You can probably relate to some of them. I've repeated some of these things so much that I consider them as my own Christmas traditions. Everyone has their own set of traditions. It may be eating a brussel sprout with their siblings to remind them of the horrid taste (one of my teachers does that) or it may be to wear a set of reindeer antlers during the day.
Whatever it is, I hope it makes your Christmas that little bit more fun!
That's all for now. Stay beautiful x
