I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas blog post tag, to sort of, maybe get in the spirit (it’s never too early). Even though we’re only in November I am so excited for Christmas this year. Please feel free to copy and paste the tag questions and fill them in yourselves, I’d love to see your answers.
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Ah, there’s SO many, I love National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Elf, The Santa Clause etc. but one that I watch every year, without fail is The Snowman on Christmas eve. I absolutely adored the Snowman and The Snow dog. My dad bought me the little plushie last year, so cute.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Always on Christmas morning (usually whilst scoffing Christmas chocolate) We usually get new Christmas Pyjamas on Christmas Eve, but we save the present opening for Christmas day morning.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
My parents always used to go all out at Christmas. We’d come downstairs to presents, balloons, reindeer prints made out of glitter, red and white tape for the north pole, it was so magical as kids!
4. favourite festive food?
Aside from chocolate…Roast potatoes during Christmas dinner, so many roast potatoes.
5. Favourite Christmas gift ?
I can’t remember how old I was, but it was the year of the Furby. I’m sure there were small riots amongst the shelves in Toys R us. My parents pretended they couldn’t get me one but then it was hidden behind the sofa! (anyone else hide theirs in the wardrobe at night, they were so creepy!)
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Christmas dinner cooking, mmm or the smell of the Christmas tree!
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Just that it’s family time, we’ll usually all have wine, the fire on, lots of yummy food and sit down in our new pyjamas to watch Christmas films.
8. What tops your tree?
For years and years it was a little gold vintage angel, my dad always lifted me up to put it on the tree, when I was a kid… at the very end of decorating everything. She was always kind of wonky and worn looking, but it was tradition. These days it’s a big gold glittery star.
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Not in an ungrateful way. I mean, I used to circle half of the Argos catalogue!But every year I would ask for a dog, without fail. One year my parents brought it a huge box, with holes in and something was moving. I was certain it was a puppy…it was a rabbit ha ha Still one of the best pets I’ve ever had though. Then last year, I finally bought myself my own Christmas puppy 🙂 Oscar on the 21sr of December. He was certainly worth the wait.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
Spending time with my loves ones, friends and family, after eating Christmas dinner, watching Only fools and Horses episodes that we’ve seen ten times already. Watching the snow fall and generally having a lovely time.
