I was kindly tagged by 2 of my favourite bloggers – Jenna at TinyFootsteps and Katie at Life on Vista Street to do this Christmas Tag…. with just 6 sleeps to go I’m as unprepared as ever… still have a few presents left to buy, still have some Christmas cards to send and the tree is still in the loft!
I will be glad when the big day is here – we’re off to the in-laws for the day so no cooking for me 🙂 This year is baby W’s first Christmas so hopefully we will have a lovely day with lots of fun memories!
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
I think it has to be ‘Home Alone’ as that reminds me of Christmases when I was growing up – I think it came out when I was about 10, we had it on video and would watch it a lot! I also love Elf, and Love Actually.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning, of course – always have, always will 😉
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I’m not sure if I have a stand-out one to be honest…. all the childhood Christmases blur into one.. and they were defo the best, I think Christmas is so magical when you’re a kid! Although just thinking about it, last year I saw the Coca-Cola Christmas lorry and that was pretty magical 🙂
4. Favourite festive food?
Roast dinner is my favourite meal anyway, so Christmas dinner is just awesome 🙂 turkey with cranberry sauce and bread sauce, roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips yummmmmm
I also love the endless supply of mini sausage rolls that my mum has every Christmas!
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Again, I can’t think of a stand-out gift… I used to love getting Friends box sets when I was in my late teens! These days I have everything I need/want and so I’m happy with bubble baths and smelly candles… they are my treats!
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I love all the smells associated with Christmas and always have some Christmas-themed candles on the go… spiced apple, mulled wine, cinnamon, oranges…. lush!
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
I don’t think we did when we were kids. When I was a student I was always working in retail til quite late on Christmas Eve. After that, there were a few years when I’d go out in my hometown (Aberystwyth) for a few drinks on Christmas Eve with my sister 🙂 It will be interesting to see what our family traditions with baby W will be!
8. What tops your tree?
We still haven’t put the tree up this year yet so I can’t actually remember what we have on there – I know 2 years ago we didn’t have an angel or star so we put a Hello Kitty teddy there instead!
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
It’s not crazy, wild or extravagant…. all I ever wanted was a Mr Frosty toy and never got one 😦
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
It has to the sense of togetherness, catching up with family and friends.
