I was tagged by the lovely Emma from Sophie, Ella and Me to answer some Christmas related questions for ‘The Christmas Tag’, so here we go…
What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
My Favourite Christmas Movie has to be Miracle on 34th Street. It is such a lovely film. I also have another favourite Elf, its such a fun, colourful film and is great for the younger children.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I don’t think I have, its either snowed a week before or after.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Since I was little we would spend Christmas Eve at my dad’s parents and Boxing day at my mum’s parents, so Christmas day was always at home. Now I have Bear and Bell we do the same but have the Hubs parents over Boxing day morning
What is your favourite Christmas song?
Fairy Tale of New York! I adore this song its lovely!
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
No, but I do touch all the presents and try and guess what they are! We started doing the Christmas eve box when Bear was 3 years old, with Pj’s, DVD, book and hot chocolate.
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph. I did have to ask the children though!
Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
Looking forward to seeing family on Christmas eve and Boxing day. It’s the two days when everyone isn’t working!
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
We usually have real ones, but this year it is fake, as our two year old cat is still very hyper.
What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
My nan’s sausage and chestnut plait!
Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
I love giving presents, I have donated a lot to the local food bank this year but next year I am going to be doing the reverse advent calendar.
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
My Nan brought me some lovely PJ’s when I was younger, I still have them now 14 years on, they are so comfy, but the company she got them from are no more.
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Some where sunny! I was born in January but I do not like the cold. I would love to visit Australia over Christmas.
Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I love present wrapping. I am not very good though but its the thought that counts right?
Most memorable Christmas moment?
When I was about 14 we all went to my dad’s side of the family for Christmas day, I’m not sure why we all went, but we all sat in the hallway around 40 of us (it was a big house!) and Dad went of upstairs and came down as Santa and handed out little gifts to everyone.
What made you realise the truth about Santa?
Santa doesn’t exist! Kidding I have no idea to be honest.
What makes the holidays special for you?
Seeing the children’s faces light up at the fact Santa has been! Also spending time as family, visiting family and seeing friends.
