🎄 Happy Holidays + A Christmas look for Hey Georgie

Happy holidays

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season! 🎉 I know that many people celebrate Christmas, so Merry Christmas to you! 🎄 I’m celebrating it this year with my family and Nick’s family.

Growing up, we didn’t do much for Christmas as a family. Sometimes we were overseas in Indonesia with the rest of my family, but I think I made it known a few years ago to most of the readers of my blog that we most certainly didn’t make a big deal out of presents. 😆 I love to buy presents for my family and friends, though. I’ve been told that I put a lot of thought into my presents, and I do think that sometimes I think of the perfect gift for some people! 🎁

I hope you all have some time off work, but if you’re working in retail I hope you aren’t greeted with angry and selfish customers and that you manage to get a break as well as being paid a little more for working through such a busy time of year. 🙃

I also wanted to wish my long-time friend Dylan a very happy birthday. 💖

Christmas theme on my blog!

I decided last night to spontaneously dip my theme into a bit of green to make it look more festive! I changed my usual aqua colour on my blog to green, so everywhere you saw aqua, is now a shade of green! I left the red, because that’s pretty Christmas-like already. I just quickly popped an icon of a red hat on my head as well.

I’ll go back to my usual theme in a few days! And this coming week, I will have my Best posts of 2016 and my 2016: Year in Review posts, so keep an eye out for those! If you recall any awesome posts I’ve written this year that you really like, let me know too. ;)

Merry Christmas, Georgie! I am enjoying the tweaks you made to your theme – how very festive, indeed!

When it comes to gift-giving, I find the thrill in searching for the perfect gift for my friends and Jax. One thing I noticed though, as my friends and I have gotten older, we’ve resorted to buying each other “home-goods” gifts. Though it’s not for the lack of effort, but because we’re all in the stage of our lives where settling down is the norm.

BTW, one awesome post I really liked is the “Unfollowing People On Social Media.”

Merry Christmas Georgie! :) I love the little change you did just for the season ^_^ and that hat on your head is so adorable! I wanted to see what happens if I resize it but your photo just goes away. Awww. :P

Haha yes, that part of the layout doesn’t really scale. I chose to remove it on mobile devices. ;p Otherwise you’d be faced with a big photo of me!

Happy holidays to you, Georgie! The holiday changes you added to your current layout is cute and not over the top! I love the Santa hat on your profile photo :D Such a cute idea!

I hope you’re having a good time with your family and Nick. My Christmas had me leaving my own flat at the moment, haha! But it’s all good. I feel a lot more relaxed in a cafe currently than I am at my relatives-filled gathering.

I’m sure whoever received a gift from you loved what you picked for them. It’s always great when people put thoughts into a gift, especially gifts that are handmade! I wanted to make some more of my spiced nuts for people as gift, but that didn’t fall through this year. Maybe next year!

Merry Christmas!!!

I think I put too much thought into my gifts for certain people. For my family and certain friends, once I figure out what I’m getting them I’m just excited to hurry up and give it to them. But I may have over complicated my gifts for my new coworkers and for the boyfriend. And yes, the coworker gifts didn’t need to be over thought. But for the bf, I just hope he likes my gift but I always feel as though guys like getting gifts that are practical. I dunno. I’m just looking forward to spending the new year with him.

And I like your festive blog design, really cute. I hope the rest of your holiday is wonderful!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, G!

I love the new look. I loved your Aqua theme just right but green feels refreshing and anew, I love it! it’s a little bit sad that this won’t be a permanent theme color hehe but at the same time, it’s what makes it special.

Hope you have a nice celebration with Nick :D

Merry Christmas! Your new colour theme is nice. Green and red is certainly very christmas-y.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas!

I love the festive look of your blog!

Christmas has always been kind of a big deal to my family as it normally is for people in the U.S. In recent years, we’ve made a tradition of going to see the National Christmas tree and some of the lights in D.C. (since we’re not far from there). I really enjoy it.

Merry Christmas, Georgie! I love the look on the blog, very nice. :D Finding that perfect gift is the best feeling, especially once it’s given. I always try to gift from the heart. :) Lucky I don’t work in retail, but I do feel for those who do. I have two friends who do and they had to work today from 8am to 6pm. I hope the Christmas celebrations went well. It’s wonderful when families get together for the first time.

Merry Christmas. I hope you had a great day. :D <3

I really love the new holiday theme. That little hat above your icon/avatar is so cool. :D

Merry (day after) Christmas to you too!

I hope you had a great time with Nick and his family this year! Shopping for my friends and family is such a difficult task! Every year I feel stumped whenever I have to think/look for a present to get them. This year included.

Hope everything is going well for you and congratulations on your engagement! :)

Happy holidays Georgie! Hope you had a fun one! :) I totally agree, I see some gifts and I’m seriously like, “OMG THIS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR X” and then getting the message on Christmas like, “HOW DID YOU KNOOOOOW!!!???” haha it’s worth it :P

I love this new theme for the holidays! My favourite part is the hat – I laughed out loud when I saw it! Super cute! I want Christmas to happen again next month so you can keep this theme till then ;) Hahah!

Love the new layout <3 Merry belated Christmas! Have a good New Year as well! Sorry if I have been hiatus on commenting but I'm back! Been unwell lately..blah! But better now!

I hope you had a good Christmas! I like the simple effort to make your site more festive and the hat icon is cute! :-)
