Here’s another Christmas tag that has been too long on my to-do list! It sounds like a cute one.
I stumbled across it while Falling Down the Book Hole back in 2019, and finally, I’m now doing it. The Christmas Characters Tag was created by Anthony at Keep Reading Forward.
Santa Clause: A Gift You Received or Want This Year
The Deep by Mayur Vayeda & Tushar Vayeda (illus.)
I would LOVE to get a copy of this book as a gift, but I know no one will gift it to me, so most likely I’ll gift it to myself for my birthday in the new year.
Mrs. Clause: A Favorite Holiday Treat to Have Every Year
It’s one of the best holiday treats, in my opinion, and I usually have it every year. But I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t realized that I don’t have one this Christmas. 😱 I don’t know what my mom and I are going to do with ourselves when there’s no Jamaican rum cake to eat for Christmas.
Ghost of Christmas Past: A Holiday Memory from Your Past
Christmas in Jamaica with as much of my family that are visiting and can fit in the house, which means many of us were spilling out of it; lots of presents and good food and music and vibes.
Buddy the Elf, “The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”: A Holiday Song You like to Sing Each Holiday Season
Umm… I’m not one to sing holiday songs, although I enjoy listening to them — but only the week of Christmas. No earlier than that.
…But if I really had to choose one… maybe O, Holy Night. I love listening to a choir singing it. It makes me feel peaceful and content and like the day is special, no matter what day it is.
Misfit Toys: An Unpopular Toy You Really Wanted to Get One Year
My unpopular toy has always been books because no one else wants books for Christmas. This time, it would be plates or some cutlery or even a roll of tissue because I just moved and I have nothing.
Grinch: A Moment When Your Heart Grew Three Sizes
Whenever a good bit of my family roll up for Christmas or any other holiday to chill and celebrate with us, especially if it’s a surprise.
Jack Frost: A Tradition You Like to Do Every Winter
Look back on the year and write a super long journal post about all my thoughts about it and what happened and what I hope for in the new year.
Hero Boy: A Moment You Believed in a Holiday Wish/Miracle
Umm… I can’t recall having such a moment.
Cindy Lou Who: A Favorite Holiday Tradition
My family doesn’t have holiday traditions, really, but I do like that we tend to spend (or prefer to spend) New Year’s Eve with family and ring it in together in a very low-key, noncelebratory manner rather than party it up.
Frosty the Snowman: A Memory Involving Snow or a Memory You Would Like to Have Involving Snow
Well my first time seeing snow was amazing because it was one of many things I was eager to see and experience when I moved here. It looked beautiful and magical from out my window, but when I ran outside to happily dance in it, all that jolly good feeling went away with the biting cold. Now I like snow as long as I don’t have to be in it — walking in it, driving in it, standing in it, shoveling it, playing in it, etc. I want nothing to do with it except look at it.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: A Holiday Activity You Like Doing
Although I most likely will not be doing it this year, I do enjoy giving gifts. I love seeing the eagerness, excitement, and surprise on the faces of those who receive the gift.
Ebenezer Scrooge — “Bah, Humbug!”: A Favorite Holiday Saying or Quote
Merry Christmas!! 😀
I do love saying that! Afterall, Christmas is my favorite holiday and time of year.

Oh man, rum cake sounds really good! I hope you were able to get some for Christmas. As well as toilet paper. 😉
🤣🤣 Lol! Yep, I managed to get both in my new place.

I don’t know if I’ve ever had rum cake, but I’d certainly be up for trying it! 🙂
Oh man! It tastes sooo good when made well and have lots of rum and wine in it. If there’s a Jamaican restaurant/store close by, some may have some in stock now (or they may be sold out, actually, since we mostly eat this around Christmas). You should ask for the black cake. It’s actually a fruit cake and sometimes have small bits of fruit in it. My aunt makes it every year. I think she starts on it in like August to start soaking the fruits in rum or wine.
I think the clear answer is you’ve got to learn how to bake rum cake in two days but then, I’m not the one who’d have to bake it…

Lol! If only I loved being in the kitchen to cook/bake as much as I love being there to eat.
