I like Prancer just because of this derpy gif Smiley Very Happy! This would be me i were dancing.

 

Do you like plum pudding? What about eggnog?

I loveee plum pudding with custard! Eggnog not so much though Smiley Surprised

 

Do you have a particular gift-wrapping technique?

I don't think I have any technique at all when it comes to gift-wrapping Smiley Tongue I'm always afflicted by 'the gap' when I underestimate how much wrapping I need for the gift πŸ˜‚

What's your favourite holiday tradition?

Having a christmas dinner with the fam!

Do you have a favourite holiday song/carol?

All I want for christmas is you is definitely a go to song for me Smiley Very Happy!

 

What's your favourite holiday movie?

Favourite holiday movie would be How the Grinch stole christmas with jim carrey! Loved that movie Smiley Very Happy

(and I would say that Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie because it involves halloween characters and a halloween premise, whereas the christmas aspect of the movie is more of a plot device)

 

What was your favourite thing about 2019?

I graduated from university! Looking for a part-time/casual job right now but it's nice to have a break from school and study and all that! Smiley Very Happy

 

What are you looking forward to in 2020?

The many new video games that are releasing next year!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here! - December 2019 Edition

Which of Santa's reindeers is your favourite?

I've always liked Comet... not sure why, I just like his name!

Do you like plum pudding? What about eggnog?

Yes, plum pudding is amazing with custard! I haven't tried eggnog in a long time, so I'm not sure about that one, though! Smiley Tongue

 

Do you have a particular gift-wrapping technique?

Honestly... scrunching it all up, wrapping it in tape and hope for the best. I always try to, uh, recruit someone else's help to wrap presents. I'm shocking at it. πŸ˜‚

What's your favourite holiday tradition?

Looking at all the Christmas lights!

Do you have a favourite holiday song/carol?

I love the Wiggle's Christmas album πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Also, maybe Jingle Bell Rock (probably because Mean Girls, tbh). All I Want for Christmas is You is also great (such a long title! πŸ˜‚). OH and how can I forget What's This? from Nightmare Before Christmas!!

 

What's your favourite holiday movie?

Honestly, probably Nightmare Before Christmas... πŸ˜‚. It's a Christmas movie! It's right there in the title! Halloween in the movie only goes for like a few minutes! They're spooky but it's Christmas! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Hm, I really need to watch more Christmas movies, honestly... 

 

What was your favourite thing about 2019?

Volunteering! It has lead me to so many opportunities this year, including flying to both Brisbane and Sydney. So yes, joining RO is up there!

Also, I keep forgetting I came out to my immediate family as gay this year... so that happened. They've been really accepting! Especially my mum, I remember a time she was on the more homophobic side but now she stands up for others when she reads something negative online and she always points out Pride-themed events! ❀ I also attended a few pride events and reconnected with an old friend!

I'm also sort of glad I've made it through it all, 2019 was a really tough year and I can recognize some of the harder experiences have made me stronger and more aware of myself + what I need to do to grow and improve.

What are you looking forward to in 2020?

Hopefully (finally) completing my Bachelors and getting into honours! I hope the year is easier on me, and I hope I can become a happier and healthier version of me and do all the things I want to do. ❀

Re: Introduce Yourself Here! - December 2019 Edition

Merry (almost) Xmas/ Festivus/ holiday season everyone, I can't believe it's so close now. Eeeek! 

 

Thanks @Hozzles for the excellent questions...

 

I'm not a huge fan of plum pudding unless it has HEAPS of custard, hate eggnog. Just so I don't sound like a total Grinch I do love some Xmas-y foods- love making gingerbread, I make a pretty good Xmas Pavlova and eating seafood at Xmas is pretty much my favourite thing ever.

Favourite Xmas movie: Too many to count! I love Elf, am a sucker for Love Actually even though it's a bit cheesy, and like a bit of Lethal Weapon and Home Alone.

Favourite holiday tradition: I love going to see the Xmas lights near us, it's always a really awesome atmosphere with kids everywhere, Mr Whippy vans, and incredible lights. If we're near the beach from Xmas it's also pretty hard to beat a Xmas morning beach swim, followed by festivities, then a late evening swim to wrap it all up. 

 

Favourite holiday song:

Can't go past this one, I love Tim Minchin.

 

I hope everyone is going well, the last weeks before Xmas always seem so busy and stressful, and it can be easy to lose sight of what is lovely about the break - thanks so much for starting this thread, I love reading everyone's answers Heart
