On the first day of Christmas, H will give to you, a tag about Christmas (yeah that didn’t work as well as I’d hoped!).
I AM SO UNBELIEVABLY EXCITED FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR, ESPECIALLY SEEN AS IT IS MY FIRST EVER BLOGMAS.
So, here we are on Day Number 1,
The Christmas Tag!
1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
This is the hardest question ever for me. I love Christmas. I love films. So Christmas Films are my ideal everything. If I really really really had to choose 1 it would probably be the Grinch, but keep your eyes peeled for My Top Ten Christmas Films coming later on this Blogmas…
2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
I don’t really remember. I mean, I live in England and it does often snow, but it always seems to snow either before or after Christmas day. I’m sure there must be a point when it did snow on Christmas day in my life, but I do not remember it, so yes but I have no memories of this..
If it feels like snowing this year it would be greatly appreciated!
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home/at my grandparents house/ at my dads house/ at my boyfriends house.
Split family problems.
4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
Hmmm… I quite like Fairytale of New York. I also like All I Want For Christmas Is You. I’m not really sure to be honest!
5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Yes. Me and my two brothers always open the presents from each other on Christmas Eve! This always involves new PJs, which is fab because you get to wear them that night ready for the morning, along with other little bits and bobs such as toys for my littlest brother and sweets/dvds/games/clothes/smellies for my older one!
6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen! But do you recall… the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the red nose reindeer!
7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
I always spend Christmas Eve baking, which is the only time of the year I get to make as many gingerbread men, cupcakes, cakes, buns, cookies, rice krispie cakes, rice krispie houses, gingerbread houses, flapjack and pretty much whatever else I feel like, as I want!
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Depends! I have a tree in my room which is white with colourful lights and decorations, so that’s always fake. We then have a few small trees dotted around the house which are also fake. The main tree is either real or fake depending on how we feel that year! One year we had this really adorable real tree that was so so so tiny but so so so fat and everyone laughed at it all through the season but we loved it!
9. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?
Baileys hot chocolate! If you haven’t tried it, you must. It is gorgeous!
10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Definitely giving! I bloody love Christmas shopping and buying presents for other people. I also love to wrap presents in pretty designs and use my stamps to make my own gift labels. I just like to buy presents for other people.
11. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
This is a really really tough question and I don’t want to offend any of my family or friends that may be reading. To be honest, I love all of the gifts I’ve ever been given but I love it when a gift is really personal to you and the person has really thought about what you like! My auntie and my nan are very good at this! Then my parents tend to ask me what I’d like beforehand and my boyfriend just knows me too well and buys me anything he knows I’ll love, like my Pandora ring!
12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
New York. I would do anything to see the Rockefeller tree and ice skate in central park and do everything else that Buddy does in Elf! Ultimate Christmas destination for me!
13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I am definitely a pro. I usually get all of my wrapping paper and ribbon from Wilkinsons which sounds weird but they genuinely do the prettiest wrapping paper and ribbon for the most affordable prices, so I give them a visit every year! My presents always look super pro purely because I enjoy it so put a lot of effort into it.. I’ve even bought people more presents before just so I have more to wrap up!
14. Most memorable Holiday moment?
This is so hard because I like genuinely have too many. I loved that last Christmas my nan bought this cute little cake from M&S just for me because it had penguins on and a penguin inside (I still wanna know how they did that!). I loved the thought, and the cake, but I mostly loved how happy it had made her! It really was adorable!
15. What made you realise the truth about Santa?
I don’t think I ever really did or have.. Like obviously I do know and my parents have told me, but I like to still believe in Santa at heart.
16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I always give it a good go but I’ve never properly stuck to one.. I get bored.
17. What makes the holidays special for you?
Definitely just spending time with my family and having everyone together. It doesn’t happen often, so when it does it’s really special as I miss my family every single day.
