Holly Jolly Holiday Tag

I've seen this tag all over here and YouTube and I've decided to do it, and it's also the first tag that I do (I think). I tag ALL of you that have not done it yet :)

1.  Favorite Christmas Movie?
I don't know if I have a favorite, but I like watching all of the Home Alone movies, The Grinch and Barbie in the Nutcracker (or any movie that features the Nutcracker ballet)...

2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list? 
On the nice one, of course :)
3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo!

I'm on the right and my sister's on the left. I was about 6 and this was taken outside of the a department store that is very popular here in Spain. You put your Christmas letter to the Three Wise Men in a mail box and you took a picture with that guy, who was supposed to be one of their helpers. Yeah, pretty horrible, I know...

4. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Just once, when I was taking my senior year of high school in the US...but I have to admit that I don't like the snow.

5. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
In my hometown.

6. Play or Sing your favorite Christmas Song!
I'm not a huge fan of Christmas music, but....

7. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
No, we open them the morning of the 25th and January 6th, following Spain's tradition of the 3 wise men (Los Reyes Magos).

8. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
I only know Rudolph :/

9. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
I'm just excited to hang out with my friends instead of going to class haha

10. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

11. Hands down, what's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?
TurrĂ³n, which is typical here in Spain. It's just like a sweet soft or hard tablet with different flavors...I don't know how to explain it, so I'm just posting this picture of one of my favorite ones. 

12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
I'm not gonna lie, I like receiving them better.

13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)
I've never had any sort of Christmas sweater, tee, dress or anything...Am I that weird?

14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
New York City! It has to be very pretty this time of the year 

15. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?
We don't have anything special.

16. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I'm a pro. I love wrapping presents :)

17. Most memorable Holiday moment?
I guess when I was a kid because I got really excited when I saw all the presents below the Christmas tree and I remember that as a very happy moment every year.

18. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I don't remember the specific moment but I guess someone at school must have told me.

19. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I always make a couple of them but I never stick to them.

20. What makes the Holidays special for you?
Seeing all my friends and all the Christmas lights and decorations on the streets. (these are last year's)
