The Christmas Tag

christmas decorations
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.

    Love you answers! My best Christmas present t was a dog! My Mam had warned my Uncle not to get me one but he turned up on Christmas Day with a Jack Russell puppy. The best thing ever!

    Love this post! I'm so excited for Christmas this year too! Although I am every year! For years the ultimate Christmas films for me have been Santa Claus the Movie and Home Alone, it's not Christmas without them! I also love the anticipation, the buying of gifts, the songs and the sense of cosiness, it's definitely family time! Chocolate, wine (or if I'm feeling retro a snowball) PJs, Christmas candles and glowing fairy lights. I just love everything about it! x

    You're definitely a girl after my own heart – it's never too soon to discuss Christmas. I love this post and I was just saying the other day that I wanted to a Christmas tag so I will most certainly be doing this one myself! I love that you bought your own puppy in the end – one of the joys of being a grown up. Bring on the Christmas films I say. xxx

    Not long until Christmas, I like this time of year when the Christmas adverts start coming on the tv and the decorations start appearing in the shops! I will definitely be doing this Christmas blog post tag on my blog in December. I will share the link. Where is the shop in your photo with all the Christmas Decs? It looks amazing! Keep up the good work with this fabulous blog!

    It's so exciting to see christmassy posts on blogs! xx

  24. November 10, 2014 / 11:55 pm

    1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s? // How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, Rise of the Guardians, Arthur Christmas

    2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? // All throughout December! For the past few years, my family has always been traveling, so we haven't been staying at home by the tree waiting to unwrap presents.

    These questions are actually really hard to answer! I think I'll stop here for now 😛

    But anyways, I was so afraid people would get mad at me for thinking about Christmas right after Halloween when there is still Thanksgiving in between, but I see that I'm not alone! I'm so excited for Christmas AKA my favorite holiday! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

    Yup! It's definitely never too early for Christmas… In fact, I start thinking about my Christmas wishlist right around the end of July? AHa…. Who doesn't love Christmas?>_<

    Oh my gosh, The Snowman. I totally forgot about that one. So good. I used to have a coloring book for it and I love it so much.
    I did the tag on my blog if you want to see my answers! =]

  27. November 15, 2014 / 3:18 pm

    I was already in the Christmas spirit after going Christmas shopping this morning, but this has inspired me to get Christmassy on my blog now too!
