Christmas TAG

I haven't done a TAG in a while, so I decided to do a Christmas TAG. I've seen lots of versions of this particular TAG in very different blog, but this time I've decided to give it my own spin and create my own tag because I sometimes find this tags to be a bit childish so yeah -- This is the very fist tag I've created so bare with me! It is based on the tag created by Shiny Tears-- I think she created it anyway. But I saw it on the Be Yourself blog. The tag is Portuguese and English so you all can also do it! If you answer this tag, use my cute ornament on your post, and tag two other blogs! And of course, don't forget to give credits okey? 



Questions/Perguntas
1. If you could spend Christmas Eve with anyone, who would it be?/ Se pudesses passar a noite de natal com alguém com quem seria?
Frank Sinatra -- if we was still alive -- and I would make him sing, all night long. I love his Christmas songs!


2. What's the weirdest gift you've ever received?/ Qual o presente mais estranho que já recebeste?
Once I received like a personal hygiene kit -- it had a toothpaste, a toothbrush, some shower gel from the supermarket, and some like super regular soap. It wasn't from any fancy or nice brand... I found it pretty weird. Was it a hint? Were they trying to tell me that a stink?! Until this day I have no freaking idea! I liked it very much! Thank you! But it was weird!

3. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or wait until Christmas Morning?/ Abres os presentes na noite de Natal ou esperas pela manhã?
When I was a kid, usually we would open the presents from the family at mid-night. Then we would go to sleep and Santa would come during the night and leave us some special presents near the fire place. Now that I'm all grown up, I don't do that any more. We open the gifts after dinner and that's it.

4. What's your all time favorite Christmas song(s)?/ Qual é/são a tua musica(s) de natal preferida?
Frank Sinatra's "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and White Christmas. Jazz is just perfect for Christmas.

5. What's your favorite Christmas treat?/ Qual é a tua guloseima/doce de natal preferida?
Candy-Canes and Gingerbread cookies -- I know this is not typical in Portugal. But that's what I grew up with ok?okay.. 

6. What do you usually eat on Christmas eves? And on Christmas day? / O que comes normalmente na noite de véspera de natal? E no dia de Natal?

On Christmas eve we usually have Roasted Turkey, smashed potatoes, green vegetables and gravy. On Christmas day, for lunch It would be roasted ham or some years the typical Portuguese Codfish. Yumms! 

7. What are your favorite Christmas Drinks? Alcoholic (if your are allowed do drink alcohol of course!!) and Non-Alcoholic / Qual são as tuas bebidas de natal preferidas? Com álcool (se tens idade para beber, claro!!) e Não-Alcoólica.

Eggnog! With and without booze! And tea. Any tea. Oh and Hot Chocolate with baby marshmallows! 

8. Do you go to church on Christmas eve?/ Vais a igreja na noite de natal?

No, I don't. My family is not religious so actually I've never been to church on Christmas eve or Christmas day.

9. Does your family has any cute/weird/unique family traditions around Christmas?/ A tua família tem alguma tradição gira/estranha/única que fazem perto do Natal?
The kids are always the "waiters" during the get together. If you want something, you'll ask a kid. Like if you want more ice, or if you want a piece of cake. You ask a kid and he will get it for you. This started because my grandparents used to say to the kids "it's you last chance to be a good boy!" and we would do anything to be good. 

10. What is your best Christmas Memory?/ Qual é a tua melhor Memoria Natalícia?
When I was 5 I think and I saw a Santa Clause at the mall with a real beard, a real fat belly and believed it was the real Santa -- not one of his "assistants" that dress up like him, because I couldn't be in every mall at the same time! lol I remember how happy I felt. It was pretty awesome!

Anyone is free to do this, but I TAG:

Let's see those answers girls! :)

  11. Tão querida, obrigada pela nomeação :)
    Não costumo responder a TAGs porque geralmente as perguntas são meio blhé, mas achei piada a esta!

    Gostei tanto da tua resposta à pergunta 5, não gosto de nenhum dos doces tradicionais de Natal Portugueses. Já os dois de que falas são tão bons e tão mais "christmassy", deste-me a ideia de comprar candy canes para decorar a mesa dos bolos!

    Perdida em Combate

  12. As avós têm sempre esse poder de nos adoçar a boca :D

    Adoro este género de tags. Permitem que fiquemos a conhecer melhor que está desse lado e dá para ver o quanto nos identificamos.
    Eu, por exemplo, identifiquei-me com grande parte das respostas :D

  15. Não sou muito de aderir a TAGs, simplesmente porque sinto que vou decepcionar com as minhas respostas! Contudo, sempre que sou nomeada, respondo de bom grado, ainda por cima nomeada por alguém que me tem dado tanto carinho!
    Assim que poder, publico, prometo. :)

  16. +e assim...eu odeio tags em geral - nunca me vais convencer a contar mais 7 factos sobre mim, por isso nem tentes! mas não desgosto de tags temáticas, se não forem repetitivas... esta não me lembro se fiz ou não =P não tens as perguntas em português, por acaso?
