Wacky Christmas Challenge

200w_d
Happy dancing!

Hello, my lovely people!I’m not dead(obviously), but just very busy with life and work.I didn’t expect my December to be so full of events and stuff I needed to do, so I’m very sorry to not be able to post as much(I’m so envious of all the other bloggers, who do such amazing holiday posts, I’m jealous..but in a good way)I’m back with a new tag,a Christmas one(Finally?!).Thank you jadewheelerblog for tagging me.If you haven’t check out her blog already I would highly recommend, she is such a sweetheart and her blog is AMAZING!

  • Use the tag image Lizzy created.
  • Link to the creator(Lizzy) and the original post.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog.
  • Answer the 6 wacky Christmas questions.
  • Tag 6 new people.
  • Copy and paste the same questions for the people you tagged

Your Questions
What is the strangest thing you ever got for Christmas?

I haven’t really got anything strange for Christmas, but I did have one “strange” accident with gifts one year.My brother was 7 or 8 at the time(I’m 3,5 years older than him)and while looking for blankets at my grandmother’s house he found the gift stash hidden (obviously from Santa ) and was telling me that he will get a microscope for Christmas and I’m getting a paint set(interesting fact:In Latvia children mostly  just get one gift from “Santa”).I was like,okay that’s cool.So we are getting to the Christmas eve, and my brother is going to the tree too read a poem(We get gifts on the Christmas eve and you need to “earn” them by doing something, like singing or telling a poem.) .After he is done my mom is handing him the gift, and who would know?!He got a battle castle and I got the microscope, and my mom got the paint set. His face was priceless, he was so disappointed he got it all wrong, but that evening we played together with all the stuff, so it was all good.

Do you eat turkey for Christmas dinner or something else?

In my family, we where strict(it was a new thing in Latvia at the time, so relative to an average family we were) Vegetarians when I was growing up, so we had just fish(that’s the only “meat’ we did eat).But traditionally in Latvia people eat pork on the Christmas Eve.

Have you ever eaten fruitcake? Do you like it?

I haven’t.

Do you prefer real or fake Christmas trees?

Both really, right now we have a fake one because we celebrate two Christmases, one on the 24.12 and other on 7.01(My mom is Ukrainian, so we try to keep both traditions alive) .So we need our Christmas tree to stay up a long time, and sadly real ones don’t.

What is the strangest gift you’ve ever given someone?

Does underwear with text on the bump “I want a white Christmas” counts?I got it last year for one of my friends.

What is the most you’ve ever spent on a gift?

hmm…I guess 30 euro(I’m still a student, so you can guess my budget isn’t very flexible)

I’m tagging…

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello everyone, today I’m here with a new award-The Blogger Recognition Award!Thanks to the fabulous thecourtneeyeve for nominating me, If you haven’t checked out her blog I highly recommend you to do so!

Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and leave a link to their blog
  2.  Write a post to show your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 5 other bloggers you want to give this award to and comment on each blog to let them now with a link to your award post.

How my blog started:

Okay, this is kind of a long story, but I will try to keep it short. I had a blog before this one, called Anna’s Little Things(with an S ), but after me not being able to blog for half a year (Our computer broke and we weren’t able to get a new one) I deleted it and started a new one after a year. When I started to write in my first I had lots of newbie mistakes, like all this WordPress and blogging stuff for me was so new and unknown.I wasn’t sure of my writing skills as English is not my native language. The beginning was a big struggle inside of me, am I doing enough?Will people like it?Am I doing the biggest mistake of my life putting myself out there?…But after seeing the first likes and comments I felt so great…and I understood that this blogging stuff really makes me happy (and my spelling in English got a lot better ).That’s how I decided to keep doing it and I feel like it’s the best thing I have ever done. I never expected blogging community here would be so welcoming and I enjoy seeing everyone getting to new milestones, It’s so great to see it and be part of it.

Advice for new bloggers:

  1. tenor (4)Don’t be afraid to be yourself.I think many of us have felt like you should be a certain way to be a blogger, but in reality, that’s so far from the truth.People feel when you are not you, so always be yourself and blog about what you want.It’s that simple!
  2. Numbers are not everything. It’s so easy to start chasing the “numbers”(follower count, view count..) and totally forget about why you started it all. Just enjoy what you are doing and don’t think about the numbers.

 

My five nominees are:

That’s it from me
