What is the strangest thing you ever got for Christmas?
I haven’t really got anything strange for Christmas, but I did have one “strange” accident with gifts one year.My brother was 7 or 8 at the time(I’m 3,5 years older than him)and while looking for blankets at my grandmother’s house he found the gift stash hidden (obviously from Santa ) and was telling me that he will get a microscope for Christmas and I’m getting a paint set(interesting fact:In Latvia children mostly just get one gift from “Santa”).I was like,okay that’s cool.So we are getting to the Christmas eve, and my brother is going to the tree too read a poem(We get gifts on the Christmas eve and you need to “earn” them by doing something, like singing or telling a poem.) .After he is done my mom is handing him the gift, and who would know?!He got a battle castle and I got the microscope, and my mom got the paint set. His face was priceless, he was so disappointed he got it all wrong, but that evening we played together with all the stuff, so it was all good.
Do you eat turkey for Christmas dinner or something else?
In my family, we where strict(it was a new thing in Latvia at the time, so relative to an average family we were) Vegetarians when I was growing up, so we had just fish(that’s the only “meat’ we did eat).But traditionally in Latvia people eat pork on the Christmas Eve.
Have you ever eaten fruitcake? Do you like it?
Do you prefer real or fake Christmas trees?
Both really, right now we have a fake one because we celebrate two Christmases, one on the 24.12 and other on 7.01(My mom is Ukrainian, so we try to keep both traditions alive) .So we need our Christmas tree to stay up a long time, and sadly real ones don’t.
What is the strangest gift you’ve ever given someone?
Does underwear with text on the bump “I want a white Christmas” counts?I got it last year for one of my friends.
What is the most you’ve ever spent on a gift?
hmm…I guess 30 euro(I’m still a student, so you can guess my budget isn’t very flexible)
