The Christmas Tag

A big thank you to Samantha from All The Buzz for tagging me! Christmas is my favourite time of year and I hope my answers give some insight to how much I do.



1. What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Oh I have so many but my top ones that I watch every year without fail are:
White Christmas
Meet Me in St. Louise
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
Elf
Home Alone
The Muppets Christmas Carol

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas eve or on Christmas morning?
On Christmas Eve I always got a present of pyjamas off my mum which is still a tradition that has carried on and Lillibug also gets pyjamas on Christmas Eve. Other than that we had to wait till Christmas morning, but only after the fire was lit and it was all cosy.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I have so many, but to this day there is one that really sticks out and that was the year I got my Blue Raleigh bike! I was 9 and for the life of me I could not figure out how Santa could possibly have brought it down the chimney. I'm still baffled!

4. Favourite Christmas food
I love the traditnal Christmas dinner, but it's the food we have on St. Stephens day that I really really look forward to because Dad literally fries everything, the turkey, the potatoes, the ham etc and I love it!

5. Favourite Christmas gift
Ah I can't answer that one at all, I've been very fortunate growing up and now as an adult. I've always been grateful for what I got, but also I never wanted for anything. I always say that Lillibug was my Christmas gift even if she was born 4 weeks before Christmas, so I'm going to say she was my greatest gift of all!

6. Favourite Christmas scent
The smell of a real Christmas tree.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
After mass it's time to sit down with a hot chocolate with marshmallows and then myself and mum stay up to all hours wrapping presents and chatting.

8. What tops your tree?
A star.

9. As a kid, what was the one extravagant gift you asked for but never got?
I always asked for a surprise and was fortunate that I never wanted for anything on Christmas morning.

10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
Christmas to me will always be about family and friends and the best part is just us all together.


I would love to tag:
