Day 19 of #BLOGMAS :: Christmas Q & A / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Day 19 of #BLOGMAS :: Christmas Q & A

S I X days until C H R I S T M A S people ... can you believe it? Today I thought I'd answer some questions about the most wonderful time of year -- some of these questions have been emailed to me, while others I find myself answering often this time of year, so let's get started.

Do you like to stay in your PJ’s, or dress up for Christmas? 
It honestly depends on when I actually wake up and if I'm opening presents at my home or my parents house. If I have to leave my house or I get up super early, I dress up. Otherwise, you'll find me lounging in my pajamas until I have to get dressed. 

If you could only buy one person a present this year, who would it be?
This one is a toughie because I have both a husband and a baby who both deserved to be gifted. Ultimately, my baby is one and he doesn't understand what presents are all about, so I'd gift my husband. Plus, I'm pretty sure he's gotten the baby something, so I wouldn't feel that bad. 

Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
MORNING -- we don't place the presents under the tree until Christmas Eve. 

Have you ever built a Gingerbread house?

Yes, and let's just say I'm not an artist and should be kept away from building anything that doesn't come with instructions!

What’s your favorite Christmas meal or treat?Sarmale and Racituri. They're Romanian dishes. Sarmale are cabbage rolls and Racituri is translated into "meat jelly" which sounds gross, but it's actually super delicious! 

Have you ever made a snowman?
Every single time snow falls, I go out and build a snowman. 

Which do you like better, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I love them both the same -- the cheery mood of both days just make my heart really happy. 

White lights or colored lights?
WHITE LIGHTS (but I like colored lights too). 
I usually want white lights inside and colored ones outside because I'm particular about these things. 

Do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Giving. I really love that feeling you get when people open up their gift and seeing the joy / excitement on their faces! It's seriously the best thing.

What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
The happiness that comes with this holiday -- especially for believers.

When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
November 1st. No shame in the Christmas spirit game. 

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Spending Christmas in New York City is on the bucket list. 

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
It's fake this year because I have a one year old. I felt like it's not as dangerous as having a real tree fall on him if he decides one day that he wants to pull it. BUT normally, I'm all about REAL trees in the house because it smells heavenly.
