  4. Scrooge or love all things festive?

    I *love* all things festive. I've been so darn happy seeing the Christmas decorations in the streets, and I can't wait to go Christmas shopping - I already did some Christmas shopping, haha - and Christmas fairs!! Oh, how I love those. I'm one of those weirdos who excitedly went through the Christmas section of each supermarket, even if they put out their Christmas stuff at the end of September, haha.

    Hide indoors during shopping madness and hit the interwebs when it calms down!

    ~ Buy all your gifts by December 1st or wait until Christmas Eve?
    Bit of both? I grab things as I see them from November (this year October! gasp) but sometimes panic finish on 24th Dec!

    ~ Scrooge or love all things festive?
    Love all things festive!

    ~ Least favorite holiday food.
    Sprouts. (Are they a thing in the US?)

    ~ If you could be a character in a holiday movie, who would you be and why?
    The love interest in a cheesy hallmark movie because they're super festive, have snow, and get swept off their feet by the perfect man! (Although, I'm kinda happy where I am... And aren't a huge fan of real life over the top romance. Huh.)

  6. ~ Scrooge or love all things festive?

    I love the lights and the tinsel, but I dislike almost everything else. I think it's because I hate doing/celebrating things "just because" and also being forced to participate. Like birthdays! lots of people love them and it's great, but why must I make a big deal of mine when I don't want to, you know?

  7. I don't celebrate Christmas or live in a country that celebrates it so I will answer assuming what I would do XD
    1- I do hate crowds and standing in lines so definitely the second option XD
    2 - I absolutely love all things festive considering any type of holiday. It makes everything feel magical and alive.
    3 - Skip.
    4 - Kevin from home alone , he seriously knows how to enjoy himself and how to have a good time XD

  10. I don't cyber Monday shop.
    I start Christmas shopping in February and am done by November. lol
    I'm not a fan of Christmas music. For some weird reason it makes me so sad.
    Least favorite holiday foods are cornbread stuffing and sweet potatoes. I like regular stuffing though.

  12. - We don't have either in Australia but we have the Boxing Day sales which take place the day after Christmas. You used to be able to find massive bargains but often the prices seem to be cheaper before Christmas sales now.

    - I try to finish all my gift shopping before November. I'm not super organised but rather hate crowds.

    - Probably a little of both.

    - I hate turkey. It looks like it should taste like chicken but tastes like feet and smells weird.

    - Elf. Smiling's my favourite 🤣

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway Karen!

  13. Happy Thanksgiving, Karen! No Black Friday shopping for me. I shudder at the thought. I've never been an early shopper but I don't wait until the last minute, either. And I love all the aspects of Christmas - the decor, the food, the giving of gifts, the music, the time with family. No Scrooge here! :) Least fave holiday food? Well, I have no sweet tooth so most sweets do nothing for me. I'll say fudge (so sickeningly sweet - ugh) or fruitcake. Ha!
    A character in a holiday movie... maybe Kiera Knightly in Love Actually. She was gorgeous, had a loving husband, and a dreamy guy pining for her. LOL

  18. "Buy all your gifts by December 1st or wait until Christmas Eve?" I buy gifts year-round, so I probably have all the gifts needed by December 1st.

    I am the worst when it comes to Christmas shopping, it’s almost always a last minute thing for me. I’ve bought one out of the twelve people I need to buy for so far. I also have birthday presents to buy, my husband and two of my kids are within a week of Christmas

  20. I am a Cyber Monday shopper or at least that's when I start. Usually done shopping for most gifts by 12/15, but theres always something! I love just about everything about the holiday. I wish my family could get together a bit easier. We live on both sides of the country!

  21. I have never been a black friday shopping...I avoid the crowds like the plague. Give me the online deals. hehe Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

  22. I am a Cyber Monday shopper/online Black Friday person--too many people out there to get more stuff. As a December baby, I love all the festive lights and decorations and good cheer that spreads this month.

  26. I do most of my Christmas shopping online, usually beginning in mid-to-late November and ending a week before Christmas. I also pick up interesting things I see in local shops throughout the year. And I make a few of my gifts each year. But you won't catch me in a brick-and-mortar store on Black Friday or Christmas Eve; I avoid them like the plague!

    I don't have a least-favorite holiday food -- no, wait, I do. It's the cranberry-banana relish that my sister's family makes (one of her husband's traditions.) Banana does not belong on the Thanksgiving or Christmas table. Luckily, we always have a banana-free version, too.

    I love... most things festive. But I'm not a fan of stores beginning the Christmas push so early (I was hearing Christmas carols well before Thanksgiving), or of putting up decorations before Thanksgiving. I like my holidays one at a time LOL!

  27. I like to buy all my gifts online on Black Friday -- only because I'm off work that day.

  34. Cyber Monday shopper, here! 💸

    I wait until Christmas Eve sometimes, ha ha. 🎁

    I'm in between Scrooge and full on festive. I hate traditional Christmas music and I don't like seeing Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. 😏

    My least favorite holiday food is a toss up between American fruitcake (I hear the UK version is quite nice) and my mother's mincemeat pie. 😝

  35. Well, I don't want to wait until Christmas Eve, but I definitely don't have everything done by December 1. I'm doing okay though this year - getting there. LOL
