Tagged - Six Holiday Quirks

I was tagged by Tickled Pink and Serious Shopaholic to list six holiday things about myself. 
So, here they are:
1. Every morning after Christmas my mom and I (and sometimes my sister too) wake up really early and head out to stock up on pretty Christmas wrapping paper for the next year. We wait in line to run in and fight the crowds and have our own system in place so we can grab the best paper. We usually like to go to the Paper Affair or the Container Store where we can pick up some fun prints. 
2. Although I am 24 and my sister is 21, we still love our Christmas Eve traditions. My mom always gives us new pajamas on Christmas Eve and an ornament to hang on the tree. They are matching pajamas and my mom shops and shops to find the perfect pair. We then take pictures in the matching pajamas with our stockings in front of the fireplace :) 
3. Opening my stocking is one of my favorite parts of Christmas morning. I love discovering all the fun things and treats inside it!  
4. We always go see a movie on Christmas night. I am a stickler for this. We are still deciding what we will see this year.
5. After I've opened my presents I like to line them up so I can look at them and I like to just leave them in the den. I do not like to have to bring them upstairs to get them out of the den until I'm told I must. They are neat and organized in their boxes, I promise! 
6. Each Christmas season I must watch Elf and another favorite Christmas movie that my mom and sister and I love (my dad, not so much lol) — All I Want for Christmas. Has anyone else seen it? We also have to watch White Christmas.
I tag anyone who wants to participate! 

My office Christmas party was a fun time and the opening of my show also went well. I'll be back later to give more of an update. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I LOVE All I Want for Christmas! Is it coming on TV any this year? I couldn't find a listing for it.

I love opening my stocking, too! You have some good possibilities for movies on Christmas night :)

OMG - All I Want For Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie of all time too!! I still have my ratty old VHS copy in addition to a DVD copy I picked up a couple years ago.

I was OBSESSED with Thora Birch when I was little... I guess that's where my obsession came from!

Hmmm I don't think I've ever seen All I Want for Christmas, but I have a slight obession with all Christmas movies...I'm going to have to check it out!
