Is it too early to upload a Christmas Tag? I think not! Like many people, I absolutely LOVE Christmas so I thought I’d start getting in the spirit on my Blog also I fancied doing more of a chatty post today so that you could get to know me better. Can I just say – I’m sat listening the Michael Buble’s Christmas Album whilst typing this post!
Q1) What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
The main thing I love about Christmas is the atmosphere. You know when you’re out Christmas shopping, everywhere has got pretty lights and ‘It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas’ is playing in every shop? Everyone is happy (unless they’ve left their shopping till the last minute) and the atmosphere is just so warming.
Q2) What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
If I had to pick one, It’d have to be Christmas With The Kranks! It never fails to put a smile on my face. With it also being my Dads favourite, it’s nice to watch it with the family during the holidays.
Of course, there’s also Elf! This reminds my of being at school just before we broke up for the holidays, we’d just watch Elf whilst exchanging presents and eating chocolate in lesson.
Q3) Real tree or fake tree?
We’ve always had a fake tree in our household, so that’s the norm for me. Personally I prefer the look of a fake one – real ones always look a bit sparse of greenary.
Q4) Giving presents or receiving them?
Giving! I don’t have many people I need to buy presents for but I really like finding the perfect present and seeing their reaction when they open it! However, I must say I love receiving presents because I love to be surprised.
Q5) Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
I open my stocking first thing in the morning, I take it through to my parents room and sit on their bed after making a cup of coffee (I know I’m 18 but nothing will ever beat sitting on my parents bed first thing Christmas morning!) After opening our stockings we’ll get ready for the day and usually go for a walk, then once we’re back in the afternoon we’ll open what’s under the tree.
Q6) What tops your tree?
We have a rather old looking angel which I’m pretty sure my parents bought before I was born but I can’t imagine buying a modern looking star, it wouldn’t be the same.
Q7) As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Every year from the age of about 8 to 15 I asked for a rabbit! I allowed to have a hamster (so I’ve owned three over time) but never a rabbit haha. I’m very grateful to have Willow (the family dog) instead.
Q8) Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I love the idea of creating handmade Christmas cards however I really don’t have the time to – so bought it is!
Q9) What’s your favourite Christmas food?
I don’t know if this counts as a Christmas food but…pigs in blankets. You can have sausages wrapped in bacon at any time of the year but we only seem to have them at Christmas with out roast dinner! I also love a warm mince pie with ice cream + gingerbread lattes. Mmmm I’m getting hungry now.
Q10) Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Yes! There’s a small church in our village that holds a service in the afternoon which we attend – they always tell the story of the birth of Jesus and include everyone throughout by singing carols. It’s so lovely seeing all the children getting excited. We then go out for dinner and to the cinema!
