Would You Rather? Christmas Edition

I find Christmas-themed blog posts a bit overdone. Everyone and their moms seem to be doing Blogmas this year. You will not find me participating in Blogmas or other holiday-themed blog challenges. Ever. They’re just not my cup of tea. Why? I feel like I shouldn’t feel the need or pressure to publish a daily blog post for the sake of publishing something. I care more about high-quality blog posts than I do about quantity. Nobody should ever feel pressure to write, because I can assure you, that is when blogging stops being fun.

Recently, I saw this particular blog post floating around the WP sphere. Apparently, this specific Would You Rather? quiz originated on Pinterest. Who knew?! Normally, I give credit to the person who gave me the idea, but who started this thread? Was it a blogger or was it someone on Pinterest? This inspiration came from various sources and you are all welcome to participate you want to join in! ⭐

Would You Rather⁉

  1. Have to sing Jingle Bells loudly every time you walk into a room or wear a Santa suit to work every day for a week? My workplace consists of lounging at home and I basically live in pajamas. I am not a loud person so you will not find me singing songs on a whim. If I had to choose, I would pick the Santa Suit even though I do not like whimsical Santa Clauses and snowmen. A Santa Suit counts as pajamas, right?

  1. Not celebrate Christmas this year or not celebrate your birthday this year? We are not party-animals so I seldom celebrate my birthday. And if I do celebrate it, then it is pretty low-key and chill. Christmas on the other hand, is kind of a big deal to people. Sadly, we will not be visiting my parents or in-laws this year but it is still nice to relax on Christmas day, nonetheless. This year, I plan to spend Christmas at home with my husband and daughter.
  1. Have Frosty the Snowman as a friend or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? Like I stated before, I usually do not care for fictional snowmen, whether they are found on mugs, plates, socks, cards, characters like Frosty the Snowman, or Olaf from Frozen I & II. If I had to pick Frosty or Rudolph, it would have to be Rudolph. Honestly, I find these fictional stories childish and overrated so Rudolph and I probably wouldn’t be like Anna and Olaf.

  1. Have mistletoe hanging in your bedroom doorway or have a large decorated Christmas tree in your bedroom doorway? How would a Christmas Tree fit in my bedroom doorway? Are we talking about a miniature Christmas Tree? Because that might work. Even though I appreciate a nicely decorated Christmas Tree, I would choose the mistletoe because of its minimalistic design and its anti-clutter approach when it comes to interior decorating.

  1. Write a five paragraph essay about the meaning of Christmas or solve a page of Christmas themed math problems? As much as I enjoy writing, I would not want to write a 5-paragraph essay about the meaning of Christmas because 1) Nobody including myself would want to read it and 2) How boring! 😴 Oh, how grinchy of me! I mean, there are better topics to write about, and being passionate about what you are writing is the true meaning of blogging. I much rather solve the math problems, even though I suck at math as an adult. As a kid, math was actually one of my stronger subjects.

  1. Have a job wrapping presents at the mall or have a job taking photographs of children sitting on Santa’s lap at the mall? I LOVE wrapping presents so presents all the way! I have been wrapping presents since I was 4 years old and volunteered to wrap relatives’ presents too. Wrapping presents is one of the few things that I actually find enjoyable and quite therapeutic. This year, I do not have any presents to wrap. 🙇‍♀️
I cannot take credit for wrapping this present. My mom wrapped it for Christmas 2019!
  1. See the Nut Cracker or dance in the Nut Cracker? I cannot dance to save my life so I would choose to see the Nut Cracker. However, it would be cool if I was a ballerina dancing in the Nut Cracker in a past life.

  1. Be given $100 for Christmas to spend on yourself or be given $1K before Christmas to buy presents for other people? $100 does not get you much in Canada. If I needed $100 quickly, I could sell unwanted items on Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace. I much rather spend money on other people so I would choose the $1K to spend on other people. Giving gifts to people and seeing their faces light up is very gratifying.

  1. Have a nose the glows like Rudolph’s or have pointy ears like an elf? Like I said before, red noses and Rudolph in general is too overrated for me. Elves however, have the potential to be “cool.” Besides, aren’t elf ears considered kawaii these days? Hasn’t there been a recent craze of e-girls and elf ears taking over the internet lately, or is it just me? Elf Girl Makeup Tutorial Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPgU-GblHYM

  1. Be one of Santa’s elves or one of Santa’s reindeer? Isn’t this the same question as #9 only worded differently? Duh, I would be one of Santa’s free spirited elves. Let’s keep Christmas classy this year, rather than tacky (or trashy). 🧝‍♀️🎄

Thanks for stopping by!

      Great minds think alike, right? 😂 I contemplated whether to write what was on my mind and ended up going for it in the end. Even if our unconventional opinions make a few waves, it’s okay! ☺️ Thank you for your well wishes. Merry Christmas to you as well!🎄

    I didn’t see the gift in the photo at first. I thought you meant your daughter was the gift and was so confused about how your mom wrapped her. It’s am here right now and I’m not a morning person clearly.

    I’ve never done Blogmas because I agree with you that the focus is on quantity plus it’s too much stress to keep up with daily posts
    We have similar answers & I love wrapping presents too! My bf is terrible at wrapping presents so I had to wrap all his presents even the ones to me (it was in a box so I didn’t see it haha)

      I love reading your blog posts tbh And as tempting as Blogmas is, I know I would lose interest in it after a couple of days. I aim to write 1-2 blog posts a month, which is all I can really handle right now.

      Haha my husband is terrible at wrapping presents too! He shoves presents in bags and throws some tissue paper on top, if that. He doesn’t even try to make things look nice, and his writing is sloppy. OMG wrapping the presents your bf gave you is hilarious! 😂

    I don’t join in with those big everyday for a month things either. Publishing for the sake of it rather than having quality content everytime you publish just seems like it’ll do more harm than good.

    1. Santa suit as when I do work I work from home.
    2. Not celebrate my birthday this year, as the year is over in just over a week.
    3. Rudolph I guess.
    4. mistletoe I guess, it’s not like you have to follow the tradition, but a tree would always be in the way.
    5. five paragraph essay.
    6. Photographer.
    7. See the nut cracker.
    8. $1k.
    9. Elf ears.
    10. Elf.

      Thank you for participating and sharing your answers with me! 🙂 Our answers are pretty similar excerpt for #5 and #6 ☺️

      I agree – honestly, I’ve noticed that bloggers don’t necessarily gain more followers just because they post every day. Usually, posting everyday leads to a decline in traffic, followers etc. The sweet spot seems to be twice a week and I’m not sure why.

    This was so fun to read! I don’t do much for my birthday either but I do like to do stuff for Christmas- at least go out or stay in with friends and family. I would pick elf ears too lol!

      Thank you for reading, Pooja! I was feeling grinchy this year and apparently I give off that vibe when I’m in a bad mood. We were unable to see family in Ontario for Christmas 2020 and barely left the house. I haven’t seen my parents since December 2019! Did you end up seeing family or friends, or did you stay home for Christmas?

        I totally understand- I’ve been a bit moody this year too and being stuck at home does not help. I decided to stay home and hang out with them online instead. It was nice just talking to them.
