Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Thanks for clicking on this post of mine today. I got tagged by both Diamond and Sawyer, so thank you both! This post has been sitting in my drafts for quite a while now, and I figured I’d get it posted today. 😃
The rules for this tag are simply to thank the person who tagged you, write your seven word story, and tag 3 people.
“Time has passed, yet the memories linger.”
This tag was actually harder than I thought it would be! I really struggled with narrowing it down to just seven words. I very much wanted to write a longer story from this sentence, but I guess that this will have to be it. How do you like it?
I will tag: Selina, BetsyJane, and AnnaKate. Looking forward to reading y’all’s short stories if you end up doing this tag!
Thanks for reading! I will be back with a new post next week, so goodbye until then!
Hello and happy Monday! Today, I have a fun post for y’all: a Christmas tag!! Because it’s just under two weeks until this lovely holiday, I thought that I’d participate in this tag, which has been created by Addie and Shanessa. Thanks to Heidi for the nomination! This tag looks very fun, and I am excited to answer the questions! Let’s get right into it.

What is your favorite family Christmas tradition (if you have one)?
We don’t have a lot of traditions. Maybe getting up early on Christmas and talking with my siblings, and then opening gifts. Also, every year, my family goes to look for a tree, which is a fun experience and family tradition, although the trees aren’t always the best. We go and find a tree, cut it down, and then we will go on a short hike!
What is your favorite Christmas food/drink?
Christmas cookies are yummy, especially gingerbread! They’re just so Christmasy! Eggnog is also good, although I’ve only had it once.
Is Christmas your favorite holiday? Why or why not?
It’s between Christmas and Thanksgiving. In the end, I’d probably go with Christmas, but Thanksgiving is an amazing holiday as well, with food, family and friends, and being reminded of all to be thankful for. However, on Christmas, we are celebrating Christ’s birth, which makes it my favorite holiday. I just don’t like how stressful and commercialized this Christian holiday has become.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
Just one? I don’t know if I can do this, lol. 😄 I tend to enjoy listening to some of the more traditional songs and hymns, but there are also some more modern songs, too. The First Noel, What Child Is This, Breath of Heaven, Feels Like Joy, Silent Night, How Many Kings, Christmas Tree Farm, O Holy Night, Go Tell It On the Mountain…these are just a few!
What is your favorite Christmas activity?
Making Christmas cookies is really fun! I like all of the peppermint flavors and the ginger in gingerbread or gingersnaps. They smell so good baking, too!
What is your favorite Christmas memory?
I have so many! I don’t think that I can choose just one.
What is your most favorite Christmas gift you have ever got?
Again, I’m not sure if I can decide on one. I’m not sure about my favorite, because every gift I have gotten may have been useful or something that I loved a lot, but they are all different and hard to compare.
What is your favorite part of Christmas day?
I love going to Christmas Eve Mass, and singing Christmas hymns beforehand. However, I don’t know if this counts because we usually go on Christmas Eve instead of the morning of Christmas. On actual Christmas day, one of my favorite things is getting up early with my siblings, and just spending time with family in general.
What’s your favorite? Ham or turkey for Christmas dinner?
We don’t usually have a traditional Christmas dinner of ham or turkey. If I chose one, though, I’d go with ham. That is because we go with turkey on Thanksgiving, so we’ve usually had it more recently than ham when Christmas comes around.
Nominate as many people as you want, or leave an open nomination for anyone who wants to join
Share the song that you listen to most when writing your book I have a whole playlist that I made for when I’m writing my book (it mostly consists of Taylor Swift songs), so I usually just put that on when I’m working on my book. However, one of my favorite songs to write to is maybe “Driver’s License” by Olivia Rodrigo, if I’m writing a sad/emotional scene, or “Today Was a Fairytale” by Taylor Swift if it’s a happy scene. Still, it really depends on the part I’m writing, and I don’t usually just turn on a song when I write. I normally just shuffle my playlist and listen to whatever songs come on, and I’ll skip the song if it’s not the right vibes for the scene I’m writing!
Share the title of a song that is similar to the title of your book My current WIP (work in progress) is a summery, sweet contemporary novel called “Old Hopes and New Beginnings” (at least for now. I’ll probably change the name sometime because this is just a placeholder name to use before I really come up with a real name.) I think that the title “I Almost Do” or “Begin Again” by Taylor Swift could work.
Share a song that would be your main character’s favorite song There are two main characters in my book. One of them is more extroverted, friendly, and bubbly, and I think she would really like Taylor Swift, especially the “Speak Now” album. The other main character is shy, quiet, and can often be found procrastinating. I think that she would really like the song “Dandelions” by Ruth B for some reason.
Share a song that describes one character’s thoughts/feelings “Invisible” by Taylor Swift. It totally describes one of my character’s situation and feelings.
Share an album or song cover that fits the aesthetic of your book Taylor Swift’s album “Taylor Swift” fits the summery aesthetic of my book!
Share your go-to album when writing Taylor Swift’s album “Fearless” is the one I listen to most, with “1989” coming in second. I also listen to a lot of Olivia Rodrigo. Like I said, I usually listen to my writing playlist, which contains a mix of Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, and a few other random songs, but I’ll occasionally also listen to an album.
Anyone who is working on writing a book, and who loves music!!
Thanks for reading! I’m writing and publishing this post on my phone, so tomorrow I’ll go on the computer, add tags, and do a bit more to edit the post. Edit: I did these today! Hope you enjoyed reading about my book, and the music I like!
Are you working on writing a book? What music do you like? I’d love to chat in the comments!
Anyways, I hope you have a great day and weekend! Bye for now!❤️

Do you have any holiday traditions?
What’s your favorite part of Christmas?
What’s your favorite Christmas cookie?
What’s your favorite Christmas song?
What’s your favorite Christmas film?
What’s your favorite Christmas memory?
1: Do you have any holiday traditions? My siblings and I get up really early (usually around four) and just go to the living room and talk about Christmas and stuff. Our parents made a rule that we couldn’t wake them up until five, so we always have to wait for a while before opening presents and everything.
2: What’s your favorite part of Christmas? I like spending time with family, and the whole story of the first Christmas.
3: What’s your favorite Christmas cookie? I don’t know if I can choose!! Gingerbread are always the classic cookies, but I also really love those snowball cookies and the peppermint ones!
4: What’s your favorite Christmas song?
I really like Silent Night, as well as The First Noel! They’re both such beautiful songs.
5: What’s your favorite Christmas film?
There are a lot, and I know I can’t pick only one! I like It’s a Wonderful Life, and even though I used to think it was boring, I like it now! I also like The Christmas Project, Christmas Carol, and Elf.
6: What’s your favorite Christmas memory?
I don’t really know if there is just one. I have so many! Every Christmas is such an beautiful time!
