12DoC |THIS OR THAT?


Let’s shake things up! I’ve no clue who will actually play this with me BUT I hope y’all do. ๐Ÿ˜› We’re gonna play a Christmas “this or that?” edition… and I’m tossing it together all by myself. So. Enjoy.

“THIS OR THAT?” CHRISTMAS EDITION

Cookies or pie?

Chocolate chip cookies and milk, you uncultured swine. (*whispers* sorry Dean)

Hot coco or eggnog?

HOT COCO? DUH? Though I’ve never tried eggnog because… ew?

Old Christmas songs or new Christmas songs?

I’m a mix of both, I guess…? I don’t like that “Santa Baby” song but I adore For King & Country’s Christmas album so fight me.

White Christmas or Australian Christmas?

I need a white Christmas, y’all. So very bad. But I live in the South. So Tennessee is still very brown. And dead. And there’s green grass out in the field? Even though it’s dropped below freezing? (Maybe I should go visit my friends up north. Or something.)

Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?

I looooove decorating the tree with my family. I also love having lights up in my room. But honestly, I’ll probably make lights in my room a year round thing. So. Tree decorating. (And I looove my ornaments.)

Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

This one is tough! I’ll go with morning, though. We don’t do gifts on Christmas Eve, but we do a finger food feast, which is fabulous. Christmas morning is full of unwrapping gifts, coffee, ooh-ing over things, insisting to get photos, and helping the kids play with their loot. Of course, Christmas morning means it’s over, and usually someone in the family declares “now we just have another 364 days till Christmas!”. So.

Home Alone or Elf?

Elf. I… never truly realllyyy liked the Home Alone movies. Oops.

Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels?

HA! I’ve barely watched any Hallmark this year and I’m dying to keep reading the Rapp series. They just… *happy sigh* put me in the winter spirit, for some reason.

Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?

I’m a total sucker for pretty Christmas outfits even if I don’t have them, but, y’know.

Go caroling or act in a nativity scene?

Carolingggggg. Unless we’re talking about that scene in Daddy’s Home 2. *evil cackling*

Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?

The airport idea sounds the funnest for a novel idea but I don’t like being in hell, so let’s go with home alone. Like a loner. A loser. Why would I be home alone? Did my family forget me? Who knows. But I’ll be making cookies, watching The Office Christmas episodes, and crying!

Read the story of Jesus on Christmas Eve or Christmas day?

We do it Christmas Eve! โ™ฅ

Gift bags or wrapping paper?

PAPERRR. PAPER CAN BE RIPPED APART.

And here are the funzies for you to copy/paste and answer in the comments!

  1. Eee, this is so fun!! Here goes…

    Cookies or pie?
    Cookies all the way!! Chocolate chip to be exact. ๐Ÿ˜†
    Hot coco or eggnog?
    EGGNOG!! Tbh I don’t really like hot cocoa and it’s the only time of year you can get eggnog (unless you make it yourself which I don’t recommend…). Most of us don’t like it so we haven’t had any yet but I Love It.
    Old Christmas music or new Christmas music?
    That depends on what’s technically old or new. Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, not so much, though I do enjoy it occasionally…but pretty much every country Christmas album even if they’re singing the classics…?? ๐Ÿ˜
    White Christmas or Australian Christmas?
    I’m so not used to getting snow I don’t really care that we don’t on Christmas, but when we do it’s such a special treat!!
    Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?
    Tree, all the way. My room is red white and blue…I’m not about to change it up for Christmas. ๐Ÿ˜‚ The rest of the house, though?? ๐Ÿ™ƒ
    Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
    Christmas morning!! Christmas Eve we just go to bed early and wish for the day. ๐Ÿ˜
    Home Alone or Elf?
    I guess Home Alone? Which I still don’t REALLY like, but anyway. ๐Ÿคฃ
    Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels?
    I *guess* Hallmark but I’m super picky about it!
    Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?
    I don’t like sweaters so I go with ugly sweatshirts, and while I love dressing up for Christmas I can only stand “pretty” outfits for a few hours so…sweatshirts. ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Go caroling or act in a nativity scene?
    Caroling!! I’m too shy to act but I love to sing and caroling is so much fun.
    Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?
    That would totally depend on said airport. A big American airport with a USO, probably the airport, otherwise, home alone. ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Read the story of Jesus on Christmas Eve or Christmas day?
    Christmas Day!! Everything happens on Christmas Day ๐Ÿฅฐ
    Gift bags or wrapping paper?
    I am so so bad at wrapping gifts, gift bags all the way…but this year I’m making myself use only wrapping paper to help improve my wrapping… ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Cookies or pie?
    Yes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ooh… but if I can only have one I’ll take cookies. Uncooked, please. XD
    Hot cocoa or eggnog?
    I can’t stand eggnog. ๐Ÿ˜›
    Old Christmas music or new Christmas music?
    Whichever my parents are playing on Amazon Music. Old Christmas Music sounds kinda scratchy sometimes, but I don’t like most modern stuff with all the romance about people who won’t be home for Christmas. Just give me Andrew Peterson’s stuff.
    White Christmas or Australian Christmas?
    Well. SC never gets snow… like, ever. So I don’t have the option of the former. (though I’d love it)
    Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?
    Tree. If you decorate the bedroom then you have to decorate all the bedrooms and it gets everywhere and is hard to clean up in the end. XD
    Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
    Christmas Eve. We do it with extended family and have really good food.
    Home Alone or Elf?
    I’ve seen Elf about 10 too many times.
    Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels?
    I don’t like reading seasonal novels? IDK, I just would rather read a good Agatha Christie novel.
    Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?
    Pretty outfit. *cough* AKA jeans and a nice blouse.
    Go caroling or act in a nativity scene?
    Act. We did it one year and it was so incredibly fun.
    Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?
    Home alone. #introvert
    Read the story of Jesus on Christmas Eve or Christmas day?
    We always read it Christmas Eve right before we go to bed.
    Gift bags or wrapping paper?
    Whichever is more accessible. XDD

  3. Cookies or pie?
    Umm… do I have to choose? XD No, Iโ€™d go with cookies all the way.
    Hot cocoa or eggnog?
    Hot cocoa. Iโ€™ve never actually had eggnog. ๐Ÿ˜›
    Old Christmas music or new Christmas music?
    It depends. I love the traditional versions of songs, but I also like todayโ€™s contemporary Christian artists and their versions too.
    White Christmas or Australian Christmas?
    Whatโ€™s a white Christmas? XD I would love to have a snowy Christmas but itโ€™s not likely where Iโ€™m from.
    Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?
    TREE!! I do my bedroom too, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Home Alone or Elf?
    I havenโ€™t seen Elf in years and Iโ€™ve actually never seen Hone Alone.
    Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels?
    Since Iโ€™m new, I havenโ€™t heard of Mitch Rapp, whoops. But, Hallmark movies make me teary-eyed.
    Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?
    Probably pretty outfit unless there is a contest. :3
    Go caroling or act in a Nativity scene?
    This oneโ€™s hard. XD But, Iโ€™d rather act.
    Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?
    I donโ€™t like these options. XD I guess at home. I would at least know where I am and be comfortable.
    Read the story of Jesusโ€™ birth on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
    Christmas Eve.
    Gift bags of wrapping paper?
    PAPER. My mom uses so much tape. XD

    Ooh, I have a hard one, Watch the Grinch or Charlie Brown?

  4. PIE! ๐Ÿ˜€ Unless it’s apple, then definitely cookies…

    Oof, tough one…probably eggnog, since I don’t drink it as often lol

    Or no Christmas music? I generally love music, but I can never escape Christmas music during November and December EVERY YEAR, so I’ve grown a distaste for it

    I presume an Australian Christmas is a Christmas without snow lol. Depends on the temperatures. If it’s cold, Australian Christmas, but if an Australian Christmas isn’t cold, then White Christmas. I don’t like snow, but I’d rather it be at highest 60 degrees outside

    I didn’t even know bedroom decorating was a thing until I came back from volunteering one day to find my sister had put Christmas lights up in my room xD Gonna have to choose tree decorating, though lol

    ELF! ELF! ELF! ELF! It’s basically a family tradition to watch it every year, here xD

    Hallmark movies are too unrealistic…but I also haven’t heard of this Mitch Rapp fellow… :/

    Uh…well…I hate ugly sweaters (well, any sweater, really), and I try not to look fantastic (decent and presentable, definitely; great, definitely NOT), so Irdk

    Act in a nativity scene! ๐Ÿ˜€ I did that once when I was really young, and I got to play “Wise Man #3”, who, for the skit, was the comic relief! He was supposed to be addicted to food, which admittingly isn’t wise lol

    I’d rather be home alone. The reason I chose this? ‘Cause I’m never alone! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve got God, and about fifty imaginary friends…yeah, I need to grow up at some point :/

    Christmas Eve is the best time to read about Jesus’ birth because it keeps you in focus. If you do it Christmas Day, and you’re not careful, you might forget what you’re celebrating, but reading it on Christmas Eve makes it easier to keep everything in context

    Gift bags, tbh. It’s harder to guess what something in a gift bag might be, and they can be reused constantly; while you can reuse wrapping paper, it’s not nearly as easy. Also, it’s easier to peak at your presents with gift bags, and I don’t feel tempted if I know it’s possible, because the challenge of not getting caught is what intrigues me xD

  5. Cookies or pie?
    PIE! Pie is the best.
    Hot cocoa or eggnog?
    Eggnog is delicious and seasonal. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Old Christmas music or new Christmas music?
    Old all the way. ๐Ÿ™‚
    White Christmas or Australian Christmas?
    Hard to pick… Iโ€™d LOVE some outdoor warmth… but snow is beautiful just for Christmas. Iโ€™d want a white Christmas and Australian rest of winter. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?
    A tree in my bedroom. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Home Alone or Elf? Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels? Not familiar with any of these.
    Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?
    pretty outfit, definitely
    Go caroling or act in a Nativity scene?
    Caroling!
    Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?
    Awful question – but home.
    Read the story of Jesusโ€™ birth on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
    Why not BOTH? If I have to pick, Eve.
    Gift bags of wrapping paper?
    PAPER. Gift bags are like unloading groceries for a special holiday tradition… ๐Ÿ˜

  6. Cookies or pie?
    Chocolate chip cookies!

    Hot cocoa or eggnog?
    Ummm…coffee? I’ve never had eggnog (and I’m now dairy free…) and hot cocoa never seems chocolatey enough for me?

    Old Christmas music or new Christmas music?
    Both!

    White Christmas or Australian Christmas?
    Like Emily said, it rarely ever snows here in SC (though we had a good one 20 years ago!) and I find I’m partial to warmer weather ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

    Tree decorating or bedroom decorating?
    Tree! We collect ornaments, getting a new one every year, so it’s fun to see them all!

    Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
    Christmas morning!

    Home Alone or Elf?
    I’m beginning to think that I’m the only person who did not like Elf?!? (though it did have a couple cute scenes) I grew up on Home Alone, so it’s a classic for me.

    Hallmark or Mitch Rapp novels?
    Sorry, never heard of him (Goodreads will be my next stop, lol) … I like Hallmark when the movie isn’t to forced but really wish that they’d at least put water in the ‘coffee’ cups they use, you can totally tell they’re empty…..

    Ugly sweater or pretty outfit?
    Pretty!

    Go caroling or act in a nativity scene?
    Caroling.

    Be stuck in an airport during a blizzard (on Christmas) or home alone (on Christmas)?
    Definitely home.

    Read the story of Jesus on Christmas Eve or Christmas day?
    Hmmm, Christmas Eve.

    Gift bags or wrapping paper?
    Depends on how much time I have. I love to wrap with paper though!

    I like Caitlyn’s question:
    Charlie Brown or Grinch?
    If I absolutely had to chose one over the other, Grinch, but don’t ask me to choose between the Old and the new version, I like them both!

    This was fun Angela!
