12 Days of Chriselle, Beauty

Unconventional Holiday Glam

Happy 1st day of December, and happy 1st day of the 2nd annual 12 Days of CHRIS-elle! My team and I loved doing it so much last year and we’re so excited to bring it back!

If you’re new to the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle, here’s the 411: from December 1st-12th, I’ll be posting a blog post every day (including the weekend!) featuring some of my favorite brands and highlighting my favorite goodies for the holidays. The coolest part? At the end of the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle, one lucky reader will win all of my favorites from each of the 12 days! To enter, simply leave a comment on each of the 12 blog posts to win!

For the very first day of 12 Days of CHRIS-elle, I teamed up with essie to create this amazing unconventional holiday glam look. I love the classic holiday colors just as much as the next girl- but if you really want to stand out at your holiday party, try mixing it up a little bit with an unexpected color. When I saw this nail color For The Twill of It, I totally fell in love. It has a gorgeous sheen to it and I love how, depending on the light, you can see so many different shades of blue, purple and teal. I took that color inspiration and brought it to my beauty look to give me a show-stopping dramatic eye. ‘For The Twill of It’ is a part of the essie 2017 holiday minis kit! It has four of my all-time favorite essie shades in adorable mini sizes! And if you love the holiday minis kit, you’ll love the essie 2017 leathers collection by Rebecca Minkoff too! It has three beautiful deep shades and a fourth rosy mauve shade with a new take on smooth matte polish.

If you usually stick to neutrals, this is a great way to introduce a little punch of color into your life! It’s bold enough to make a statement but subtle enough to not overwhelm you. Not to mention this little essie holiday minis set is probably the best stocking stuffer ever!

So what do you guys think? Ready to rock an expected polish color like For The Twill of It? Well, you can! This color plus some more amazing essie shades are the first giveaway for the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle. Plus, thanks to our partnership with Essie, we were able to make a generous donation to Baby2Baby!

    Hey Chriselle! One beloved holiday tradition is my very happy Chinese Christmas dinner of hot pot–we use lots of veggies, fish cakes, tofu, beef + lamb and my mom makes her special dipping sauce. There’s really nothing than having a teaming hot pot dinner with family 🙂

    My family started a tradition seven years ago, where Christmas would be celebrated with time spent together as a family, as a opposed to presents. Every year we do a family talent show, play large family games, and karaoke. I always look forward to the holidays because of this!

    My darling’s My favorite holiday tradition is sending Christmas cards. The days of sending and receiving greeting cards has passed, but I truly love this tradition. I am the child of British immigrants and all my life I received and sent cards to family and friends overseas. My Christmas card list has grown over the years , while the family overseas has shrunk . Send a card and bring some Christmas joy and love !

  • ChaMee says:

    Favorite holiday tradition is beer, wine, food & family.

    That’s all I need!

  • Camilla Lauriola says:

    My mom and I have this little tradition. Every year, if we travel or see a Christmas ornement that we think we would like, we buy it to put it on our Christmas tree. So when we do our Christmas tree we re discover all our ornements and they all remind us of different places that we visited. It’s pretty cool and our Christmas tree is pretty unique! 🙂

  • Diane says:

    We started this tradition when our first child was born. We give our kids 3 presents (1 from Mom & Dad, 1 from sibling, and 1 from Santa). This symbolizes how Jesus also received 3 gifts when he was born. It has also given us the opportunity to not “stress” about getting everything on their wish list since the kids know how many gifts they’ll have.

  • Liudmyla says:

    MY favorite tradition is to spend a lot of time with my family

  • Laura says:

    My favorite christmas tradition is that we play with our family with water balloons, and them we all end up in the pool (we usually spend our holidays in warm weather).

  • Deborah Chloé says:

    I absolutely love the earrings you’re wearing in this post! So feminine and not too much, yet a beautiful statement piece to glam up every outfit (and makeup). I have three favourite traditions. The first one would be to write Christmas cards to all my beloved ones, who inspire and encourage me through the whole year. The second one would be to wrap presents while sipping a hot almond milk chocolate with mini marshmallows and watching Christmas movies. The one I am most looking forward to is a nice dinner or brunch with friends, to ring in the festive season and get all together to share the most beautiful memories of the year and tell each other what we’re thankful for.

    Love,
    Deborah Chloé

  • Liliana Li says:

    I really enjoy your posts about different things and the tips you give. Even though you have a successful career, it is amazing to still see you so grounded. I love how you use non-expensive items that many of us can also get our hands on! I actually really like your pop of colour in your eyeshadow 🙂

  • juelz says:

    The nail polish colour are so pretty.Love the glittery effect
    My favurite holiday tradition id travelling upcountry to go spend some time quality time with my parents

  • Léa says:

    The first saturday in december we have our annual christmas party with friends which I love. It´s rather small, each of us invites one friend, we wrap gifts for charity and decorate different kinds of cookies. This is something I look forward to the whole year!
    Kind wishes,
    Léa

  • Susanna says:

    My family’s best holiday tradition is cooking altogether for Christmas dinner. It’s being quite difficult to do as our kitchen is small, however it’s sooo funny as my dad loves to make jokes, and we cook, laugh and talk throughout the process. My little brother loves to play with flour, as a result all the floors at home become white😂

  • helodie says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is going someplace new every year. Being able to experience different parts of the world with my family is such a blessing and the greatest gift!

  • Catalina Clark says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is buying a real Christmas tree, and when they cut off the stump (for freshness) we save the stump and put the date, type of tree and a “theme” for that year’s Christmas.

  • Danielle says:

    It is a little bit hard for me to say what my favorite holiday tradition is because it is always different. I do not have any relatives here in the U.S. All of my aunts and uncles and cousins live in Korea, so for holidays I never get to see them because they are so far and it is so expensive to go there. It is hard to say what my favorite holiday tradition is because my boyfriend and I are long distance so some years I will spend it with my parents and other years with my boyfriend. If I were to choose a favorite holiday tradition overall it would be just enjoying our morning coffee together and baking sweets.

  • Audrey says:

    Fav holiday tradition is staying up late, wearing new jammies, drinking hot chocolate and watching “Elf”.

  • Giselle says:

    My favorite tradition: Christmas morning brunch with the family!!

  • Lidia says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is watching White Christmas with my sisters!! We always look forward to watching it together!!

  • Tida says:

    Hehe, you totally read my mind! I absolutely love Essie nails! Perfect for the holiday gifts indeed. 🙂 xo

  • omg love your blogs.. an inspiration

  • Eloisa says:

    Drinking hot chocolate, wearing pj all day and watching movies on Christmas Day

  • Minh Nguyen says:

    Favorite holiday tradition is getting our picture taken with Santa at Children’s Museum. I swear he is the best realistic looking Santa ever. Those pictures are framed and placed alongside the fireplace.

  • Naïlah says:

    I don’t have any holiday traditions. But if i’m Ever so lucky enough to start a beautiful family like yours, then maybe I will start some of my own

  • Karolina says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is sharing the moment with my family and finally seeing them after months of being away, that’s the most precious! Happy holidays Chriselle!

  • Khulan Dangaasuren says:

    I really love you Chriselle
    I’ve been following you for so long and I’m also very happy and excited for this giveaway.
    The best holiday gift I’ve ever received was a bag of goodies, my mother used to buy me and my little brother.
    Now that I’m older, I stopped receiving those gifts
    Love you <3

  • Rupal says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is having a family photo-shoot and spend a good time together.

  • Lauren says:

    Your last post for 12 days of Chriselle really struck a chord with me. I’ve always been the type of person to have dreams as big as my mind could fathom yet these last few years I’ve felt so defeated and those dreams of mine somehow became just that… Dreams. I know it may seem silly but I feel like winning this computer would be the jumpstart I need to believe in myself again and know that anything I set my mind to is attainable, not just some wish. So I can get this show on the road as they say.

    TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION LOL
    My fav tradition is cooking with my mom for the family

  • Laura R. says:

    My favorite Holiday tradition is to simply pass some good time with those I love.

  • Lana says:

    My fav holiday tradition is drinking mulled wine and making gingerbread raindeers with my mom.

  • Sarah Traurig says:

    My favourite tradition is when my entire family gets together on christmas eve and we have a big family feast. After dinner we all pour ourselves a cup of mulled wine and sit by the christmas tree and sing christmas carols together. It sounds very cliche but it makes my christmas complete.

  • Carmen says:

    Wheep I love this unconventional mood! My absolute favorite tradition is go to the Christmas market with my mom and watch the Swarovski Christmas tree at the train station in Zurich – we have been doing that for years!

  • Jayden S. says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is going sledding in Park City with my family. We get all bundled up and sled for hours and then when we get so cold we cant feel our toes we head to a coffee shop and get hot chocolate. This year will be our 10th year doing it.

  • Alexandra C. says:

    Those nails looks SO GOOD my god O.O I was actually looking for some inspiration for my Christmas themed nails ! Thank you !

    My favorite tradition must be when we decorate the trees: I used to do it by myself but one year, I just got angry at my parents for not having any “real” Christmas traditions so I told them I was going to start them myself and this year, my mom tagged along ! We went my parents and I to buy a tree together (that was so awesome) and then my mom, sister and I decorated it together ! I am 22 and the one starting our traditions xD (better late than never… and someone gotta do it !!)
    Love, Alex

    My most FAVORITE tradition is a big sleepover with all my cousins! Even now, as an adult, it’s fun to all get together, ages 3-40, and just hang out on Christmas Eve!

  • Jane Lee says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is to make my own Christmas cards for people I love! I usually cut out potatoes into many shapes, stamp them into different colours of paint, then onto the cards! It takes time and effort but seeing the reactions of my friends and family fills so much warmth and joy into my heart!

  • Piper Livingston says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is baking sugar cookies while listening to Christmas music with my mom and grandma. Love spending time with family during such a warm time!

  • Tania Franco says:

    My favorite Holiday tradition is going to see the Chritmas lights down Candy Cane Lane by where I live. It’s fun to see which house has added or changed anything since the year before. I love taking my friend’s kids to go see them!

  • I bet even “Sheen” needs more sheen in her life.
    Haha 😂 aside from picking the nail polish to match with our outfit on Christmas eve. My whole family never misses 9 consecutive midnight mass from Dec 16-24 and end it with a family dinner. Our mom usually wakes us up so early around 3am to prepare to go to church. She always remind us that if we complete it, our Christmas wish will be granted. And oh, there’s usually free food after. Hahaha 🤭

  • Tania Franco says:

    My favorite Holiday tradition is decorating the Christmas tree with my son because we go through all the ornaments he made all throughout his elementary school, and it brings back such sweet memories!

    My favorite holiday tradition is the yearly family vacation. This would be the time where I would meet all my cousins and hang out with them. We usually do a three day trip somewhere near and just catch up on stories and life:)

  • Shelsea says:

    My favorite holiday tradition would be how we celebrate all day Christmas Eve and when it hit midnight we all opened presents. We’ve grown older so it’s harder to get together. But it feels nice having that love from family when we do.

  • Michelle W says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is decorating the Christmas tree together with my family.

  • Lin Su says:

    I love my friends gathering together to play Texas Poker
    we each put in a little amount of money and the one who win the all will buy nice food for the group ~

  • Crystal Lee says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is getting together with my family and having Christmas dinner. My parents are immigrants and never celebrated Christmas with the traditional home-cooked meal, or a huge holiday party but we would always make sure to have a meal together. Sometimes dinner would be at a Korean or Chinese restaurant because no other restaurants are open, or it’d even be eating in-n-out; nonetheless, I always will remember the holidays as a time of being thankful for another year of having each other.

  • Lilly Ngai says:

    My favorite holiday tradition would be exchanging gifts with my cousins. We started doing that when I was young and my aunt would spend days at the mall buying gifts for us. We would wrap gifts and write who it is to and then on Christmas Day, we would exchange and unwrap together. It is honestly the one day of the year that we all get together and have a good time.

  • Naomi says:

    My favorite tradition is decorating our tree with my dad 🌲

  • Elizabeth says:

    My favorite family tradition is to wear matching pajamas w my 4 sister’s while we open gifts on Christmas!!!

  • Michelle Le says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is reuniting all the family for Christmas Eve!

  • Jenn says:

    My favorite tradition is sharing a home cooked Korean meal with my family. Now that I am living on my own, I don’t get to eat my mom’s cooking anymore. I definitely need to learn how to make some dishes from her.

  • Christy says:

    Hello! My favourite gift for Christmas was actually a card from my brother. It meant so much to me as I was living abroad for a period of time and I did not get to spend time with my family for Christmas as it was too costly to fly back home. My brother was a person with little words, thus as he wrote me a card with all his heartfelt words, I couldnt have been more thankful and touched. That was one Christmas that I will never forget! Family always comes first and I spent 2 hours facetiming with my family, eating my salad while they were having roasts for dinner but it was that moment where i felt that no matter what the distance, we are always together 🙂 This laptop will mean the world to me, I do really want to start a career on blogging and fashion styling just like you. You inspire me so much Chriselle and I hope one day, I can be successful just like how you are! Thank you so much and Happy early Christmas 🙂 <3

  • Carol Woo says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is honestly nothing. My family has work on holidays so we don’t eat or do anything. When I was young we had a small fake Christmas tree and we would put our gifts there but as we are growing up we don’t do those things. Everyone is busy doing their own thing like my mom and dad going to work and my brother in his room playing games.

  • Veronica says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is decorating christmas cookies with my cousins and grandma!

  • Kathy says:

    Love all the colors in this set. Essie always has great polishes.

  • Monica S. says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is putting up the tree with my family on Black Friday! Such fond memories!

  • Angela C says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is going to the aquarium with my boyfriend before we join the rest of the family for dinner 🙂
    It’s just us, the magnificent creatures, …. and a bunch of kids running around screaming.

  • Mindy says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is quality time with my family and annual Christmas tree lane walk.

  • Mysee Joy Lor says:

    My favorite family tradition is making sure every family member is present. It just isn’t Christmas without family.

  • Hillary says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is shopping with my mom. For gifts or for food, it doesn’t matter, the stores or full of Christmas decor and songs, and it’s that one time of the year we really cherish together!

  • Arlene says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is gathering with family, eating korean food, and rewatching korean dramas. It may sound too “ordinary” but what I think makes it more fun and valuable is the warmth that my family gets from each other. Just relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. I think this year, we’ll be rewatching “Goblin” (last year was “You who came from the star”)

  • Justine says:

    I would like to declare my new holiday tradition right here and now – beginning in 2017 I declare my new holiday tradition to be to either indulge in a new experience no matter how big or small or travel to a foreign place (not just out of the country) just somewhere that I have never been; even if it is just 5 miles away! #12DaysGiveaway

    Thank you so much for doing this!!! Even just answering the questions alone is a great experience!

  • JY says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is to eat shabu shabu with my family on Christmas Eve and then watch Home alone 1 and 2. I think it’s crazy how we have continued this tradition for at least 13 years now, but we never get bored with it.

  • An Nguyen says:

    My favorite tradition is having everyone coming home for Christmas near and far…it’s one a year that my family and extended family get together to celebrate season of love!

  • Ying Tze says:

    Definitely is the family gatherings and spreading joy and love to everyone!
    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Chriselle! Thank you for starting December and ending the year with this lovely 12 Day of CHRIS-elle! ❤️ You have such a big heart and I believe your contributions to the organisations will go a long way. For myself, I volunteer my time at various events the school organises to engage the elderly or children.

  • Jamie Kwan says:

    Every year, my family goes on a ski trip with a few close family friends. Starting from when I was too young to remember, we’ve had this same tradition. What I love about these trips is all the fun and joy with the people who are close to me. We always have a delicious potluck-style meal of fusion Chinese-American dishes. And then, we all chill out on the pull-out couch and watch a movie (usually action and horror, not a holiday one) in front of the fireplace. Of course, I can’t forget the skiing. It’s one of the greatest feelings to whiz down a mountain, surrounded by snow but still warm and bundled up with just my cheeks and nose reddened from the cold. #12DaysGiveaway

  • Jamie Kwan says:

    I saw the For the Twill of It color when I went shopping over Thanksgiving break. I fell in love with the color, but I was focusing my shopping trip on gifts for other people so I didn’t pick it up. Now that I’m seeing it again, I’m thinking about picking it up as a little treat for myself!

  • Nicole Ocariza says:

    The new holiday tradition we do now is celebrate with both sides of my family. It makes me feel grateful that my son gets to experience this because I’ve never had that when I was a kid. We go to my husbands parents house and bring my family over, and then have everyone eat breakfast and open their gifts! It’s interesting to see it as a tradition now. I never pictured myself having this kind of life, and I feel truly blessed and thankful.

  • I think my favorite holiday tradition its wraping all the gifts. I love making bows, and selecting wraping papers, making imposible to guess whats inside, decorating the gift bags, writting the identification stickers. I know its not realy a tradition, but its someting you do during the holidays, and I like it and its a must and it makes me happy.

    I love this set! Im actually a nail junkie and certified nail technician (something I did while I was in school because I love nail artistry that much!). My favorite holiday memory is taking money walks with my family: which is essentially when we take long walks around the neighborhood/or state parks and had missions (such as catching falling leaves or finding animal footprints in the snow). Every time we complete a mission, my sister and I received a dollar, my parents could participate and things would get so competitive! We would come back from the walks exhausted but richer, so we didn’t mind the cold too much HAHA

  • Saerom says:

    This past year, I discovered a new holiday tradition. I got invited to my very first family white elephant gift exchange and it was an awesome experience! I come from a very small family and only immediate family members in the state are my parents. When I got invited to my boyfriend’s family’s gift exchange event, I got a little too excited! He comes from a big family and it was an awesome tradition to be a part of

    My favorite holiday tradition are our unconventional Christmas dinners.

So we spice it up with either a curry which we cook together or we order sushi and eat it at home.

    One of our traditions is opening up our stockings on Christmas Eve. A great nail polish 💅🏾 and lipstick 💄 is a great stocking stuffer for a few of my family members!

  • Samantha Cambeis says:

    Hey Chriselle! I don’t have many traditions in my family, but we always get to see our grandparents, cousins, and other family we don’t normally see during the rest of the year, at Christmas. It’s a wonderful feeling to see the people you love at such a joyous time of year.

  • Elisa K. says:

    Every Christmas, we take a break and go on vacation!

  • Jen says:

    Growing up in a Chinese household I never really had any Christmas tradition so my siblings and I started one where we’ll watch Christmas movies and eat TONS of junk food and make strong popcorn and do Christmas activities I never had the opportunity as a kid

  • Chloé Jeun says:

    I was born in France but my parents are Koreans so we don’t have strong holidays traditions but I think my favorite tradition is to spend every Christmas with my mum and sister and doing every time something different (going to an opera, going to a little trip, going to a ballet…).
    Make up on fleek by the way haha, and thank you for the contest !

  • Rachel says:

    With my family, we don’t have a lot of holiday traditions… At least we didn’t think that we did!
    Last year, we had a few family members from outside of our family and both of my sibs’ significant others staying for Christmas.
    Generally one of our gifts from each other includes some type of new clothing item or piece. As soon as we open our gifts, we put on our new piece and wear it for the rest of Christmas morning – even if the tags are still on.
    It’s funny when you don’t realize that you have a family Christmas tradition until someone comes in for the celebration and points it out to you!

  • joolee says:

    my favorite holiday tradition is eating CRAP TON of food. esp korean food 🙂

  • Gwendolyn says:

    I’ve been blessed to have a family. When my children 👶🏾 were born I wanted to create traditions that we could look forward to each year. It amazes me how much my little family looks forward to planning and prepping each activity.
    1. Our Christmas 🎄 is up by Thanksgiving and we begin decorating on thanksgiving night. In the last few years we’ve added midnight 🕛 shopping to thanksgiving night.
    2.Stockings hang by December 1st
    And food drive/toy drive and feed the homeless
    3. Matching PJs
    4. Open Christmas stockings on Christmas Eve
    5. Stuffed French toast Christmas morning and various frittatas
    6. Ice skating ⛸ or skiing ⛷ the day after Christmas
    Wow!!!…
    I didn’t realize how much we did until this very moment. School activities have come to an end because 3 of my children are adults and the youngest is homeschooled.
    Church activities has slowed too because we have relocated so much and haven’t found a church home.

  • Esther says:

However, I am not able to contiue doing that favorite thing anymore since my family immigrated to USA. Hopefullt, I will find another favorite holiday tradition here in the U.S❤️

  • Mariel says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is on Thanksgiving, actually! My family has a strict “no utensil” rule for this tradition. We lay out banana leaves as our “plates” and eat all the food with our hands for a very messy yet obscure way of celebrating the holiday.

  • Sandra S says:

    Favorite Holiday Tradition: Making Macaroons with my friend. Its our annual catch up tradition!!

  • Ada Paulina says:

    In Mexico, the best part about Christmas is to cook a feast with Mom and Grandma for all the family. I believe that food connects generations in a way that nothing else does.

  • Rabia says:

    Every year I print out these templates that say ‘I am thankful for ____ because….’ and pass them out to all my family members. We each have to write about another person and at the end of the night I hang them up on the wall. It’s sweet to read what everyone wrote to each other and we all have to guess who wrote to us!

  • Rorie says:

    Every Christmas Eve, I go to Latin Mass with my grandma. I love the tradition and ritual and pomp of this mass, and I love helping my grandma get “all dolled up” for it. When we get back home, my whole family sings Christmas hymns and carols around the tree – usually until one of my nieces starts to doze off. Then we exchange the gifts we got each other for Secret Santa, and “track” Santa’s progress before bed. When I was little, all of my sisters used to pile into my room for the night. We’d throw all our pillows and blankets on the ground, and have a little slumber party, all of us determined to somehow stay up long enough to see Santa. Now that we’re all grown, only the sisters who live out of town stay over for the night, and it’s my nieces turn to try and stay up to see Santa.

  • Marta Sancho says:

    I’m from Spain and here although we know Santa Claus too, the three Wise Men are who bring presents to us. They bring them the night of January 5th and January 6th is holiday. The night of 5th we clean our shoes and put them under the Christmas tree and so the three Wise Men can know where to leave the presents for the different members of the family, we also leave some Christmas sweets and milk or a little liquor for your majesties because they are doing a big journey and we don’t forget the camels (because they ride camels) and we leave them water.
    After that we eat Roscón de Reyes (a typical cake) with hot chocolate.
    This is my favourite Christmas tradition and I enjoy it since I am a kid.

  • Phuong Bui says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is cooking together with the family with some cheezy Christmass music on the background! X

  • Carrie Ferreira says:

    My favourite tradition in my household is when my Grandfather used to “be Santa Claus” every Christmas morning. Every year (well into my adulthood too) we would wake up very early, still in our PJ’s, sit by the tree, while my Grandfather would pick presents from underneath the tree and gift them to each of us one by one. He would put on his best Santa Claus voice. 🙂

Most of my extended family is Swedish however and we always have very Scandinavian food for the holidays. Even down to our holiday decor, there are Swedish traditions rooted in everything. I love that Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas without Swedish smells in the home and Swedish music playing. God Jul! <3

    I’m not sure if I have already commented but my favorite holiday traditions are movie nights with hot chocolate with my family. We would usually spend all day watching Christmas movies or playing Christmas music as we baked cookies and then the whole family would gather on the couches with hot chocolate and buttered crackers. Even those were “cheap” snacks, they were the ones that always meant the most to me because I shared them with my family.

  • Eden B says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is listening to my grandmother read everyone The Night Before Christmas. I love it because I look around and see all the little kids enchanted by the words coming out of her mouth and it’s amazing to get to listen to her. As we get older, so does she, so it’s something special that we don’t have many years left of.

  • Samantha Choo says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition has to be buying ornaments. Every year my mom would take my brother and I to the store and as a Christmas present she would get us each an ornament (or if we chose a cheap one, two). It was so fun to pick out our own special ornaments (no plain colored ornaments but ones like a sparkly snowflake or some sort of animal) and now they all fill up our Christmas tree every year. Also props to my younger self. I haven’t broken a single ornament over the years.

  • Natalie says:

    While we don’t have a set holiday tradition, we like to cook a really big meal on Christmas and have everyone sit at the table and just talk away. It is a great way to do some family and friends bonding and there is a ton of good food to eat!

    My favorite holiday tradition is on Christmas eve my family and I open 1 gift from under the tree and the next morning we all wake up early to open the rest.

  • Ashleigh says:

    I grew up in the Bahamas and every year there’s a Junkanoo parade on Boxing Day (the day after Christmas). The parade would start around 10pm Christmas night and go into Noon the next day.

  • Ada says:

    My favorite tradition is the 24th December. In my city, we use to go out in the morning with friends and get “a little” drunk. We chill a lot, everyone is out so you meet lots of people (I live in a small city). Then, when the evening arrives we have the Christmas Eve’s dinner with our family. Having family conversations after having drunk for the entire day is not the best but lots of fun actually 😂

  • Rea says:

    I love the Winter from beginning. Most people only like this time because oft Christmas but for me it’s THE TIME oft the YEAR I like most – I can drink my Ginger tea, eating cookies without thinking about my weight (for what else do wie habe oversized pullovers, Hoodies etc.?) and reading a book without losing my Nervs (except of buying presents). I also can take my time to make my nails! So for me it’s the perfect season💕

  • Nicolette says:

    My favorite tradition, other than gingerbread house making, was going to the Christmas eve church service then going to a family friend’s Christmas party immediately afterwards. There’s a certain comfort in the ritual of the service and the party allows everyone to relax and have fun.

  • Laurie Mulhollem says:

    Hi Chriselle! I absolutely love the classic look of pearls with a little modern twist in length! ❤️ My favorite family tradition would have to be our day-after-Thanksgiving trip to the mountains to cut down a Christmas tree. Once the tree is secured to the top of the suburban, we’d eat our picnic, then spend the rest of the day sledding down the old logging roads late into the night until we were under the moonlight. The day was followed by hot cocoa and a change of socks for the ride home. 🎄🎄🎄

  • Hsin Chou says:

    Hi Chriselle,

    MY favorite holiday tradition is…TBD! Before the birth of my child, I’ve never really been into the holiday season but since she was born a year ago, I have started making an effort to decorate for the holidays at home. This year, I think we want to go ice skating or walk around New York city to glare at all the beautiful Christmas trees and department store windows. This is something the city makes an effort to do every year and it would be easy for us to be part of it.

  • My favorite holiday tradition is one my family and I have been doing since I can remember. No matter where we are in the world, we get on the phone or in person and sing the song the 12 Days of Christmas. We do a random draw before to see who sings which day and the coveted spot is always the 5 Golden Rings line.

  • Diane Kanmougne says:

    I love putting up Christmas decorations i think that’s actually the most funny part of Christmas

  • Jenny Mito says:

    My family is multi-cultural and multi-religious; it’s like the United Nations up in our house. Our traditions reflect and celebrate that. On Christmas Eve we celebrate with my boyfriend’s family by making tamales together and then of course enjoying the ‘fruits of our labor’ by eating until we’re tamale wasted. Then we celebrate Christmas Day at my Dad’s house where we mesh Chanukah and Christmas together, by cooking latkes ( potato pancakes) and lighting the Menorah, followed by stockings we fill with gag gifts and unwrapping presents under the tree. I love being able to celebrate the different cultures and religions that have helped shape me and the simple beauty of family and good food.

  • Karen says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is buying and decorating my christmas tree! The smell of pine also brings me lots of joy too.

  • Esmeralda says:

    Believe it or not, I’ve never tried Essie nail polish. It’s a brand I have always wanted to try but it’s one that I never reach for. I love their colors though. I put it down on my Christmas list, so maybe I’ll find one in my stocking this year!

    My favorite holiday tradition is waking up on Christmas Eve and making tamales with my family! It’s our bonding time 🙂

  • Chloe Chapman says:

    Watching “A Muppets Christmas Carol” with my Mom. It’s my favorite Christmas movie and nobody except my mom understands my love for the movie so we always watch it together in the Living room with only the Christmas Tree lights on, and hot chocolate.

  • Christine Rolon says:

    Favorite holiday tradition is making cookies with the whole family!

  • Pak To says:

    I guess my favorite holiday tradition isn’t really specific to Christmas, but on holidays, my dad will always make a plate of bacon to accompany our breakfast, so waking up to the smell of bacon is one of my favorite things to look forward to.

    My favorite holiday tradition is to visit the Tree at Rockefeller Center each year. I was born in NYC, but no longer live there, so it is always such a special treat to visit around Christmas.

    My favorite holiday tradition is just being home. Even though my family doesn’t do anything special, my favorite thing is just to relax and spend time with family who I haven’t seen in forever. Having quality time makes spending it a lot more special. I am very excited because this year is going to be different. I haven’t seen a particular family member in four years and this person is going to be secretly visiting and surprising family 🙂

  • Sarita Rossi says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is eating holiday cookies and drinking hot chocolate.

  • Denise says:

    Everyday you put me to shame. I feel like a frumpy mummy in comparison. Yet, it is so hard to dislike you as underneath all those clothes, makeup, and all the nice things, you seem super nice. These Essie nails are fierce. Not sure if I can carry them off as I tend to stick to Ballet Slippers. BTW, I loved that Ballet Essie collection video you did … If only Chloe was in it, that would be everything!

  • Liz says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is watching Christmas movies!! My husband and I don’t live anywhere close to either of our families so we’re always traveling for Christmas. That makes it difficult to make our house super festive, but you can watch Christmas movies anywhere!

  • Judy says:

    Such a mesmerizing nail polish 💙 My favorite tradition is the family gathering at my sister’s place. We would cook and bake together before the dinner and it’s so much fun

  • Sal says:

    Love the nail polishes! My favourite holiday tradition has to be the endless cooking and family gatherings. xx #12DaysGiveaway

  • Victoria O says:

    Unrelated to the nail polish (though that is rocking too) but I love the dangly ball earrings!

    My fave holiday traditions are mostly about food haha I’m from New Mexico and we have lots of traditions like tamales, posole, biscochitos and more! Of course the best part is the community aspect we have so many local events around where we get to meet with family and neighbors and eat the yummy food! There are so many occasions like lighting of different streets (when traditional Christmas decorations like farolitos the candles in paper bags are lit and everyone goes to different businesses for food), Posadas (reenacting Mary and Joseph looking for shelter, again involving going around and getting lots of food!), and especially Christmas Eve when we go to the pueblo and celebrate with big bonfires called luminarias and again, food. There really is nothing like Christmas in northern New Mexico.

  • Line Kim mee says:

    That nail colours😍

  • Annie Curi says:

    Not really a tradition, but in holiday season I can’t get enough to listen Christmas songs and watch Christmas movies I used to when I was child ^^ .

  • Robin Fujimoto says:

    I create a treasure hunt for my kids for a special gift. They each get their own clues and it’s crazy as they run around the house in different directions to find their last 🎁❤️

  • So Samra says:

    Your topknot looks so fabulous!

    Every holiday season, me and my family used to always go to Bryant Park in NYC for a day of skating and enjoying the holiday village shops, while roaming around and window-shopping and seeing the decorations at rockefeller. It’s always been the best way to tie in our city with our time off and really get a family activity in.

  • Jeana Lim says:

    My mom and I have been making mandoo in December ever since I was a little girl for the upcoming Korean New Year Celebrations. She would always tell me that if I made pretty mandoo then I would have pretty daughters. Well now I make mandoos with my sons right when Christmas break starts and while I don’t have any daughters I tell my sons the same thing when they help me make them. But as boys will be boys my sons like to make bomb style mandoo and weird shaped ones are they’re favorite.

  • Angela Wen says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is putting up the Christmas tree while listening to Christmas music every year with my family! 🙂

  • Jamie says:

  • María jose says:

    My favorite Christmas traditions are baking with my sisters, all kinds of foods like cookies, cinnamon rolls, bread, etc., and in essence the whole apartment smells like Christmas, are the most wonderful memories, the homemade aroma.

  • Jane Hyun says:

    Love!!! The variety of colors are amazing esp the one you have on

  • Angelina says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is putting up the Christmas tree with my family right after Thanksgiving! It’s a really special time because each ornament we own has a story of its own, so it’s always fun to reflect on each one as we put them on the tree.

  • Victoria Ngo says:

    Im never bold enough to wear anything that’s not neutral, including holiday colours. But these are so pretty I might buy it just to have it, or since my fave holiday tradition is all the family gatherings, I can use it as a gift to someone who might.

  • Cat says:

    Such gorgeous colors!!

    My favorite Holiday tradition is making deviled eggs with my mother on Christmas morning! She has a secret recipe for them that she’s teaching me and each year she shares a new tip to make them perfectly!

    The colors are so classy and glamorous.

  • Sonia says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is to be bundled up in a cozy sweater, scarf, and beanie, while walking around downtown Taipei. The lights, music, and holiday spirit brings so much joy to my heart every time.

    Also I just bought 3 new nail polishes on cyber monday: navy, black, and nude. Can’t wear to wear them although my all time favorite color to wear during winter is a chocolate brown. It looks so sweet yet sophisticated.

  • Nafisa says:

    My family gets together and has a barbeque in the holiday season and that’s my absolute favourite part of it. 😀

  • Eva says:

    Hej Chriselle! I love the nail polish, looks freaking amazing!

    Eva

  • Mirela says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the house. My parents are artists so they taught us how to make our own Christmas decorations. So usually we are sitting together the whole family listening Christmas songs or watching movies (basically we are watching ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ again and again) and trying to be creative.👩🏻‍🎨

  • Jessica Lee says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is going to take a family picture with Santa!

    My favourite Christmas tradition is playing board games with my family and Christmas stockings! Even though my sister and I are now adults, we still go and sit on the end of my parents bed to open them all as a family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 Part of the fun is since I now know the truth about Father Christmas, (shock horror 😱) I now buy my mum’s stocking fillers and I love to get things I know she’s going to love ❤️

  • April Arrozal says:

    Hellllloooooo Chriselle & December!! My holiday tradition is finding an ornament or two that would represent something pretty special from that year. I got engaged last year so I found an ornament that represented NYC since my fiancé proposed to me at Highline Park (my fave place in Manhattan). This year I found a gold diamond piñata shaped ornament because at my bachelorette, my sweet girlfriends gave me the exact gold diamond piñata but in a larger form!!! I love decorating my Xmas tree and it’s more meaningful when I have ornaments that represent something every year. Thanks for reading! Xo, April

  • Heidi says:

    I love this look on you Chriselle! My holiday tradition is being around my family and throwing a big Christmas dinner! YUM YUM! Usually, we also hand out gifts and play white elephant and super fun games like Family Jeopardy!

  • Grace Kim says:

    My family was never big on the holidays so I dont have too many traditions but I do remember going to the movie theaters a lot on Christmas day…now that I work in the film industry I can look back on those memories even more fondly 🙂

  • Charlene says:

    I love the duo chrome!

    My favourite holiday tradition is seeing all my friends – I moved away from my hometown shortly after graduating, two time zones away. It gets lonely more often than I’d like to admit, so when I see them again it’s as if my soul feels lighter and becomes more vibrant

  • Kimberly Haag says:

    Most of my siblings are still pretty young, so Christmas still has lots of magic in it at my parents house. My favorite holiday tradition is waiting upstairs with all of my siblings for our parents to tell us that we can run downstairs and see all the presents on Christmas morning. Even though I’m an adult and married now, I’m very excited to bring my husband in on this tradition that always makes me feel like a kid again.
    I’m obsessed with your blog! Thanks for always keeping me update and being so open with your followers. Xoxo

  • Karen H says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is picking out gifts for my family and friends. It’s so fun to pick out a personalized gift for each person- especially when you remember little comments about things they need or want; their excitement and surprise as they realize you remembered the smallest details is always so joyous.

  • Jennifer says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is to buy gifts for my family. Sometimes difficult to think of what to get them, but seeing happiness in their face makes it all worth it.

  • Annie Vogel says:

    Love the Christmas tree

  • Chitowngal says:

    Putting up the Christmas tree with my little girls. They have already started remembering how we received some of the ornaments and talking about their favorite ones (which changes from year to year).

  • Michelle says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is to play board games with the fam

  • Thelma Tun says:

    My favorite holiday tradition would be going on a trip with my family. As long as I am with them for a while, I am so happy and feel like I am recharging my energy as I am studying abroad far away from my home even though they often visit me. Also, I love it when we made barbecues in the House yard with all the relatives during this holiday. It’s good to catch up with cousins too.

  • Alicia Park says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is getting together with my best girlfriends who are total boss babes! We always are busy so being able to set a day where we can all celebrate the holidays together and reminisce on all the fun moments we had during the year. We would enjoy wine, treats and play secret santa together. Coming together with good company makes me excited for the holidays and wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Love the polish! Very fun…. Favorite tradition – this is tough – I have many…. Decorating the tree with my family while listening to Christmas compilations and singing along is probably number one. Easily a close second is baking cookies with my girls, and eating all the broken ones that come out of the oven. It’s amazing how many imperfect cookies we bake!😉
    xoxo

  • Aliya says:

    For the holidays, me and my 6 best girl friends spend a weekend together in NYC. We do secret santa, get matching pajamas, favorite things gifts for each other, and matching fuzzy socks! In the morning we’ll all make an innovative brunch together drinking some of our favorite classics!

  • Sumiya says:

    Dear Chriselle!
    First of all you’re probably the first person I’ve seen who can pull off purple and green so well. The only other people I’ve seen in purple/green are evil disney step-mothers.
    Now, my favorite holiday tradition is so take care of myself and my family! I am so busy year around so I don’t get to spend time with my family as much as I would like to and absolutely no time for myself. I also bake a lot of yummy goods around the holidays!
    Xoxo,
    SUMIYA!

  • Parishi says:

    My best Christmas Family tradition is to sit at home with my Family and talk. We talk for hours and hours not realizing that the time has passed :p Being from India, over here people don’t quite celebrate much for Christmas. But as I studied in a Convent School, Christmas is like any other major celebration for me and my Family.
    PS – You were THE inspiration for starting my blog. It is still under construction but it’s soon gonna be live.

    I just wanted to put that in there. So that you know how important your blog has been not only for you and your team but as an inspiration to others as well.

    Love from India!
    XO, Parishi

  • Jenny says:

    Growing up my parents were workaholics… many they had no choice, raising two kids and working in Korean restaurant for 12 hrs a day.
    We never celebrated holiday not because we didn’t want to but they had no choice and I remember one year they tried to celebrate it became really awkward… then as I grew up.. Christmas meant alcohol.

    Now with two beautiful kids, we really try our best to keep the holiday spirits. It was a bit challenging in the beginning because I didn’t know where and how to start but as I celebrate Christmas each year with my loved ones my heart really fills with tear, joy, love and blessing… I tear because I don’t want my kids to have to same feeling as I did, my heart is filled with love because of my kids and it’s a blessing because now my parents are celebrating Christmas with us! I pray and hope that this moment of joy and memory will never stop!

  • Kelly G. says:

  • Samriddhi Gurung says:

    Being a Hindu, my holidays involve different festivals. Tihar(for Nepal as diwali for India) is one of my favorite holidays. It lasts for 5 days and the 5th day is undoubtedly the most awaited of all days. It resembles Christmas in ways except for the fact that we decorate our houses with different lights and play deusi/bhailo instead of Christmas carol. The fifth day is called “Bhai-tika”, “bhai” means brother. On this day, all sister fast for their brother’s long health and well being for half of their day until they break their fasts by putting on colored tika of seven colors on their forehead and putting on garlands made of “globe amaranth” and serving them delicacies especially the “selroti” which is like a deep fried sweet rice doughnut. In return, the brothers provide gifts/money to their sisters and respectfully touch their sisters’ feet with their heads. This is my favorite holiday tradition.
    Sending you love from Nepal, Chriselle! Happy holidays!

    My favorite holiday tradition is picking out a tree and decorating it while listening to Christmas music. This year was extra special because our 3 year old helped us.

  • Elle says:

    Love love love! Who doesn’t love Christmas! My favourite tradition has to be our Family Christmas Dinner, our family lives in so many different places that it’s likely to be the only time in a year we can all be together for some good quality time. We are Greek so Christmas looks a little different for us, but the food my Grandmother makes is incredible and always a highlight!

  • Sabrina Jiang says:

    My favorite tradition is definitely putting up our Christmas tree. We have this tacky but kinda cute artificial Christmas tree that’s layered with fake snow and putting up is the biggest hassle cause my mom is a clean freak. Whenever we put it up my mom cause crazy cleaning the house, every couple of minutes she’s just vacuuming the floors trying to get all the fake snow from spreading to other rooms haha

  • Courtney says:

    Those colors are giving me life! Spending time with my family and friends are one of the best things about the holidays. My favorite holiday tradition is baking and decorating cookies with my family.

  • Cami says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is getting in the car and driving around to different neighborhoods looking at Christmas lights while listening to Christmas music.

    I love the polish colors!

  • Lauren says:

    Love all the Essie nail polish colors in the holiday mini set! I swear Chriselle you can pull off any color/trend they all look great on you! And it’s so great that you folks are donating Baby2Baby always so nice to give back during the holidays to those less fortunate. Growing up with a single parent, mom was always working on Christmas. So my favorite holiday tradition would be pre-Xmas, picking out our tree together and decorating it while sipping on hot chocolate and listening to Christmas songs. Till this day she still works on Christmas (night shift), so now that I’m older I always stop by her working place with some hot food and a little Christmas cheer 🙂 sharing time with loved ones is the best way to spend the holidays!

  • Shawna Kovach says:

    Love the nail polish color you’re wearing!

  • Amy L says:

    Loving the metallic colors! My favorite holiday tradition is going to see the Chinese New Year lantern festival in my city. It definitely is earlier than expected but I sometimes feel like the lanterns are ever prettier than ornaments 🙂 #12DaysGiveaway

  • Marie-Lou Meyer says:

    Christmas is my favorite holiday! My favorite holiday tradition is setting up all the Christmas decorations – from the tree, the lights, the garlands, stockings, and lasers. Teehee! It’s great family time and it’s exciting to know Christmas is coming up! Love the look!

  • Yee yan says:

    I love the idea of gift exchange but my family do not have such tradition when I was younger. So I’ll used parts of my pocket money to buy a bunch of snacks and wrapped them with newspaper ( yes newspaper! Hahaha). Sometimes I organosed lucky draw and made sure everyone had similar amout of snacks ( now that I think back why do I even want to do lucky draw? Hrmmm). One thing never change is my love to Christmas. My mum’s birthday falls on Christmas day and I love how mall going to spend on decoration for Christmas and people choose organising gift exchange christmas dinner. Its like the whole world celebrating for my mum (or anyone who having the same birth date). The whole December is so magical! 😍
    Happy day to you and your team Chriselle

  • Vanessa says:

    I love the polish! My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve with my family, we each open one small gift before the big holiday and it’s just such a nice evening to spend together and do our little thing.

  • Barnadette Robinson says:

    Hi Chriselle. I love the new colors by Essie!!! They have the best polish and it long lasting and doesn’t chip. My favorite holiday tradition is spending time with my family.

  • B says:

    I love going to craft fairs and go to all the outdoor winter activities like Christmas light watching, and baking cookies during the holidays

  • Danielle Bonner says:

    L o v e the festive Essie hues this season.
    Just enough spice to elevate your holiday outfit.
    “For the thrill of it” is a fun & sexy nail color!
    Love how it compliments many skin complexions due to how the sheen changes color in the light.
    The purple and teal tones specifically have a great shimmer and catch your eye! 🎇

  • Aimen Arshad says:

    Hey Chriselle, one of our family traditions is to give to those in need for this month. Christmas time can be really difficult on everyone & the joy we get from helping those in need is honestly the best feeling in the whole world! We’ve been doing this for years & im hoping to pass it down onto the next generation 🙂
    Xoxo

    Valery
    PS: You and your family are so cute!

  • Peiyu says:

    I have been away from home for the past five years. I have been shopping for presents for my family online every year around Christmas and ship them home. Then I call them to make sure they got it and see if they liked it 🙂

  • Midori says:

    Hi Chriselle!
    Thanks for this opportunity for us to participate a 12 days challenge😊 this is actually fun! My traditional way of spending Christmas is with my loved ones. Love sipping egg nog with a good brandy at night and this is something I have been repeating every year! Feels cozy!

  • Gaju Gatera says:

    I always love your photos

  • JENNY says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is drinking hot chocolate while watching Christmas movies 😳😳😳

  • Nicole Chong says:

    Hi Chriselle, this is a great read 🙂 So my favorite holiday traditions are every Christmas day, my best friends (3 people, including me) and I would exchange gifts under the Christmas tree. We would usually buy multiple random gifts and give it to each other as a surprise. I normally don’t celebrate the Holidays with my family because they don’t believe in Christmas, but for me, I usually go to church by myself in the morning, then head over to my best friend’s house 🙂

  • Lingda says:

    Hi Chriselle and team! Happy holidays! My favorite holiday tradition is to spend quality time with my family, from yummy meals to new experiences, love spending every moment together with the fam!

  • Nimreichon Jamang says:

    Hi Chriselle,
    Talking about traditions, it used to be having warm tea or hot water with jaggery and sitting nearby the fire with the family.. singing carol songs.
    Eversince i moved to australia, its been drinking chiled beer by the pool, with barbecue for the lunch. I do miss the wintery feeling of christmas. Christmas doesnot feel like christmas without Winter.

  • Danielle Bonner says:

    After my grandparents passed away my Mother and I moved to the Virgin islands (St. Thomas). I was 11 at the time. As an only child raised by just my Mother, her and I had a tradition that after we exchanged 🎁gifts in the morning and I helped her prep Christmas dinner, we would get fresh and clean put on a new pair of pajamas and watch 🎄 movies together all day while eating a fabulous meal (as my Mom is an amazing cook). Just the two of us! It’s really the little things that make you feel blessed in life. Cherish them!
    Happy Holidays 🎇

  • Rachel Proto says:

    My favorite tradition has always been making Arancini, Italian rice balls, with my moms side of the family. It’s a recipe that has been used from my grandfathers side of the family and they are the best ones i have ever tasted. I love traditions and being able to do this every year and be with my family makes it even more special!

  • Maureen Reynoso says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is doing the advent calendar with my kiddos and making gingerbread houses- so many great memories!

  • JANUARY ROQUE says:

    My favourite holiday tradition from home is completing the “Simbang Gabi”! This tradition starts on the 16th of December of each year where you have to wake up very early in the morning (4 AM) to attend the holy mass at church. You have to make a wish during the very first mass and you have to continue attending the Early Mass until Christmas Eve. When you complete 9 days of the “simbang gabi”, our elders told us our wish will come true. 😊😁 it is a struggle to get up early for mass back then but meeting your friends and then seeing your crush play at the band during the masses was really fun! Ah youth!!! And on the last day of Christmas eve mass we would be lighting up fireworks as we all head home! 🤗🤗🤗

  • Michelle says:

    Love Essie! I recently threw out all my nail polish during my move, so would love to restock my collection!

  • Mine Celik says:

    My favorite tradition would be drinking warm chocolate milk, a very classic one. However for some reason during the cold winter days I tend to crave for sweet and warm foods, which I usually both never consume (exept for chocolate haha). #12DaysGiveaway

  • Michelle chan says:

    We dont really have a tradition but we look forward to have some family and friends catch up time due to busy and hectic schedules. Its nice to take a break from early morning school runs and not having ro wake up so early… so defo a xmas stress free break to spend time with the children and family. X

  • Sakura says:

    My favourite Christmas tradition is my family always buys our Christmas tree on the 1st December from a local farm and each year we get another bauble to put on the tree. Problem is : we’re running out of space on the tree!

  • Kalene says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is baking with my family and decorating our Christmas tree!

  • It’s not a traditional tradition 🙂 it’s a family one, and to be honest, I like these ones better. So, what i like most during the holidays in my family, is that awkard moment when we all finished dinner, sit around the table chit-chatting, and, even though we all know what’s going to happen next, we pretend we don’t. And one by one, we dissapear from the table, drop our presents under the tree (that is strategiclly placed in a different room) and quietly return to the table. At some point, one of us (when we know we actually all finished our rounds) plays the surprised kid while pretending to go to the bathroom: ‘Oh my gosh, Santa was here’ :))) From that point on, we gather around the Christmas tree, pick up our presents, and open them up, one by one, each person at a time – as it always comes with a ‘show’ no matter what’s insided those boxes. Oh God, I LOVE CHROSTMAS! ❤

  • Jules says:

    Seeing the holiday lights at meadowlark park! 😍

  • Milena Berestko says:

    My favorite holiday tradition in Poland is going from house to house dressed as an angel, or any kind of holy person, and signing Christmas Carols. It’s so beautiful to see people open doors of their houses and listen to such 2 minute performance. I miss it much here in the US.

  • Ju says:

    i would like the boldness to pull these colors off!

    Hi Chriselle and the CINC team!

    My favorite holiday tradition is staying up all night on Christmas Eve with my family! We’ll go to Christmas Mass, watch Christmas movies, play games, and eat crabs and lobsters and all our favorite Filipino foods. At midnight, my mom would put on a Santa hat and pass presents. As kids, my cousins (there’s a lot of us!) and I would tear up all the wrapping paper and start playing with our new toys. Now that we’re older, we watch the little ones and feel so much joy and warmth as we watch the excitement on their faces.

  • Julia says:

    i love these colors on you!

  • Hannah says:

    I just love how interactive your blog is and how you love to connect with your readers! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Seiyeon Park says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is definitely setting up the Christmas tree with my parents! I remember growing up as a kid in Seattle, my parents were definitely not that familiar with the whole concept of Christmas, since they were both born and raised in Korea. But my dad wanted to make me feel more at home in our new house and I didn’t know that many other children my age in my neighborhood, so he got our family a Christmas tree which was always so much fun to decorate, and the tree ended up lasting us for more than 5 years! It just made me happy to see all the sparkles and splashes of color lighting up our small but cozy home, even if there weren’t any presents underneath it. We’ve kept up the tradition since then even though my parents are always “too lazy” to take out the tree because I insist that we continue it, haha!

  • Jesicka Goei says:

    Our family’s favourite Christmas tradition is our Christmas day picnic lunch at the beach. Kiwi style.

    Xo, Jesicka

  • Randi says:

    Nothing like family being all together!!!

  • Andrea Rodriguez says:

    Chris💕 you are ao sweet and amazing!!!!
    My favorite holiday tradition is being reunited with my family❤️ We dont live on the same state so its the best to come to my mom’s home and share quality time with her. One of our traditions is in New Years Eve, at 12 we do so many things: we jump on our chairs so bad luck doesnt catch us, we hug each other and wish happy new year, then we eat 12 grapes and you make a wish for every grape and after have 2 spoons of lentil soup for prosperity. Then we go outside with a luggage which is supposed to bring you luck to travel on the new year! All of these things are so fun and emotional !!!! LOVEEEE the holidays!!!!!

  • I know this about the nail polish but ugh, I love that eye shadow that you’re wearing! So my favorite holiday tradition is reeeeeeeeeeally really random. I always wrap gifts and watch Nick + Jessica’s Newlyweds DVDs while drinking hot cocoa, lol. Not sure why these things go together to me but I’ve done it for the last few years, lol/.

  • Line Kim Mee says:

    That is so cool, furthermore that you are making a “give back to your community” – seriously, I’m a fan ! You and your amazing team – you put up a standard everyone should follow 🙌 !

    My favorite holiday tradition is my family gathering around the tree on Christmas morning, opening presents from youngest to oldest and then sitting down to have a warm homemade breakfast together.

  • Amy says:

    I love this nail color and I love how your eyeliner plays on the different colors of the polish! Christmas is the only time of the year that I can manage not to destroy my nail polish since my job involves a lot of carpentry, but I always go for a pearly shade with a red or green pattern for the holiday.

    My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve Dinner at my uncle’s house before/during/after church. We can never agree on which service to go to, so the party goes on while small groups step out to go to their preferred service.

  • Anna-Lena says:

    The best and my favourite tradition during the holidays is baking delicious Christmas cookies for my family and go for a long walk with them in the woods enjoying a frozen winter wonderland outside. There is nothing better than the warming feeling when you get from the cold outside into your warm and cozy house that’s smells wonderful and delicious. After this long walk we all sit together with a cup of warming tea enjoying the cookies while talking and laughing about our lives …

  • Emilija says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is buying gifts for my loved ones! I always buy them socks and many many more lovely things. I loveee seeing their excited faces more than anything else in this world!

    Love youuu xx

  • Catherine Lu says:

    My favorite holiday tradition :

    On Christmas, we choose one of our pot belly uncles to be the fake Santa . It is usually the uncle who smell like cigarettes and has a rough five o clock shadow . That way underneath his fake beard, you can feel his cactus – like bristles scrape against your face when he kisses your cheeks.

    The best part is also seeing the aunts squeeze themselves into a tiny Santa “helpers” outfit . Which is a red velvet fringed shoulder less dress .

    The whole team would bust through the doors carrying garage bags full of gifts . It’s quite lovely .

  • Alessandra Maestro says:

    My favorite holiday tradition… nails in the shades of red and gold…

    My favorite thing about the holiday is that every year my family will play a game and the loser has to take home this losing trophy and add something to the trophy. The trophy is very ugly now and no one wants to take it home but we have fun playing together

    My favorite Christmas tradition is going out to see the lights and drinking a hot cup of mulled wine on the street with friends!

  • Isabel Jorge says:

    The singing, the food, the presents, the city lights, the tree, the family being together, everything is wonderful at Christmas. It’s the Christmas spirit altogether.

  • Lynn Ng says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is driving out to see Christmas lights and declarations with my family because we live in a tropical country so we’d do anything to indulge in the “winter-y” Christmas vibes! I’m 26 now and it still makes me feel like a little girl when I do this with my parents every year!

  • jesschiang says:

    not sure that i’m part of any holiday tradition since i’ve moved quite a bit and wasn’t always able to fly back for the holidays. but it’s always been a blessing to spend the holidays with friends, extended family, or any other loved ones around….they’re even better if we’re all stuffing our faces together. as a newlywed, hope to start a holiday tradition this year!

  • Rose says:

    My favourite holiday tradition …
    Take my family out for dinner on 24 Dec:
    Pick a wheelchair friendly place for my grandma, it also has to be a place with food that everyone likes – everyone means my parents, uncle’s family, aunt, grandma & her caretaker who can’t eat pork !
    When I make the reservation I have to ask for a table with easy assess and enough space for grandma !
    Arrange transportation for grandma, send everyone the address including the “how to get there” ..
    Prepare gifts for everyone and remember to bring them !
    Wow I can feel the stress just to write about it !!!

    Hi Chriselle ;

    Since you guys are doing 12 days of Chriselle I thought I do my know version called 12 AN’s Tradition’s… well short version!

    So for the first day i want to share with the CINC team and everyone else that one of my most favorite Christmas traditions is decorating…
    Every year after thanksgiving I start to buy Christmas decorations for the tree and the house. This is my thing; like i can ask my family for there opinion and they help me but in the end i just decorat everything the way I planned because to me that’s where Christmas starts and i just love doing it. It won’t take me a day it will probably last a couple of days since I’m in finals but i feel that in a way helps me relax and enjoy the moment and just shut off for all the stress from finals.

    Oh and PS love the post Chriselle I myself am obsessed with nail polish

    -With Love AN💕

    Togetherness is something I adore very much.. Families are my priorities! I love hanging out and just chilling at my parents house together with my siblings, niece and nephews. We don’t do it every year, but I know that’s something I’ve always waited every year. As we live in separate cities, it is very hard to gather all of us, normally we gather during Chinese New Year and Christmas time. However, as the family gets bigger, it gets harder every time. I would love to bring back old times when everybody is as free as me!

  • Renu Ghale says:

    Never celebrated Christmas growing up as it is not a holiday we celebrate back home but since moving to US, I have started celebrating with friends from back home. We just get together and eat yummy foods and exchange little gifts and I love it as it gives us a chance to get together and catch up on our lives and also show appreciation to one another.

  • Jess says:

    My favourite Christmas tradition is that my family and I do a secret Santa for each other with one bigger gift, but the best part is that it has to come with a poem! The poem reflects on that person’s year, and turns into the ultimate opportunity to poke fun at them…in a rhyming scheme, is there anything better than that?! Creates so many laughs and revisited memories.

    My favorite holiday tradition would have to be being home with my family and just watching the classic Christmas movies together as a family that we watch every year or going down and singing Christmas carols for our neighborhood to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Even the simplest things feel great, I’m just happy to spend time with family since everyone is busy with work or school so being together is just asking for too much already! (: . I loved the photos as well, they are stunning!

    My favorite holiday tradition is cooking American food with my sister. In our Korean family we rarely cook American food so during the holidays my sister and I are in charge of cooking the American food while my mom cooks the Korean food. At the end of the night our table is the perfect Korean-American fusion!

  • Veronica says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is the decoration!!! Everything gets so colourful and cheerful. Every nigh when it’s dark you can see the magic all around, in your own area, at the street, neighbours’ houses. All this lights and colour lights my mood up! Really love it!
