Together with Renuka from Past Bedtime Blog, we decided to make a tag about winter! I love winter time, and it is almost here, so we created 10 questions that have to do with winter. There are no real rules, you can just answer the questions and tag people (if you want). So let’s get started.
- Do you like the cold?
I do, but I don’t. I love the snow and the ice, but I hate being cold. I do love it when the air is cold and when you breathe you see your own breath.
- Favorite Part About Winter
Christmas and Sinterklaas! Technically Sinterklaas is not in Winter but well… Sinterklaas is a Dutch celebration that is a lot like Christmas (there’s also a bearded man with presents). This year (like many other years) I’ll celebrate it together with my family and we will be making presents for each other, which is always fun 🙂
- Does It Snow Where You Live
Sometimes, but not very often, sadly. Usually it is just a little too warm to snow so if it snows it gets all wet and messy.
- Favorite Clothing Item In Winter
I love knitted things, like hats and scarves and sweaters. And I love knitting them myself.
- Your Favorite Winter Memory
I think my favourite memory is that a lot of years ago, I build an igloo in the garden with my dad, brother and little sister. There was a thick layer of snow, of at least a couple of inches, and it was a little icy, so it was perfect for building. My dad got out a shovel and started making blocks of snow and then we made ourselves a little ice house.
- Favorite Hot Drink
I am a hot chocolate girl all the way, although recently I started drinking more tea. But hot chocolate is just a little extra special, for those occasions of curling up with a book in the couch, or when you come in from the cold and you need to warm up.
- Best Winter Book To Read Curled Up In A Blanket
Shiver and the rest of the Wolves of Mercy falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. The story takes place in winter and it is one of my favourite series ever. It’s about (were)wolves and it’s just wonderful 🙂
- Best Winter Movie To Watch
I don’t have one movie in particular I like to watch in the winter, but there are always Harry Potter movies on tv in winter so that’s great!
- Do You Do Any Winter Sports (Skiing, Snowboarding, Ice-Skating)
I can ski pretty well and my ice-skating skills are okay. I am learning to snowboard as well but that is really hard and especially because there is only one week in the year I can ski or snowboard (which is when I go with my family to the mountains).
- Favorite Christmas/Holidays/New Year Tradition
My favourite tradition… I think that would be the Christmas tree. I am not really the person for traditions, but I do love the look of the Christmas tree in our living room. When I get home late and it is dark and everybody is asleep, I love to just look at the tree standing there with all its lights (and maybe even presents). Oh and I love the tradition that everybody has Christmas lights everywhere, that is just wonderful.
And YOU!!! Let the love spread! (btw if you want you can steal my header 🙂 )
