It’s only 3 days until Christmas Day and I’m feeling pretty festive so I really wanted to do ‘The Christmas Tag’ I’ve seen so many and thought I’d do mine. Here goes…
❄️ WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS FILM?
This is an easy one. It’s the first ever Christmas film that I remember watching; Santa Clause The Movie 1985. I’ve not seen it in a long time but it was on TV on Sunday (18th) Unfortunately I knew I was out that evening so I recorded it (I actually just ran to the TV to check it recorded, it has!) Can’t wait to curl up on the sofa to watch it.
❄️ HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
Yes, when I was very small I remember it being all white outside, It didn’t last long and was all gone any about mid-day, but that’s the only time but I remember thinking, ‘how magical’. It’s lovely at Christmas but snow the rest of the year just causes mayhem! In the UK we usually only get snow, around February if any. It looks like it’s going to be about 13 degrees this year, that’s hot for here!
❄️ FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
That will be The Pogues & Kirsty McColl Fairytale Of New York. Something about this song the just screams Christmas. I heard it for the first time last week driving home and had to turn it right up and sing along. I just needed James Corden sat next to me!
❄️ IS YOUR TREE REAL OR FAKE?
Real! Although some fake trees look amazing. I saw a gorgeous snowy one recently but it was about £130! Ouch. I have a real one purely because I love the smell. I always get the kind that doesn’t drop their needles otherwise, I can see why it would put you off having a real tree.
❄️ WHEN DO YOU OPEN YOUR PRESENTS?
I’ve always opened them Christmas morning. I’d wake up and open my Santa sack first then go downstairs and open some at breakfast, then slowly open them throughout the morning. I don’t like to open them all in 30 seconds.
❄️ HAVE YOU EVER BUILT A GINGERBREAD HOUSE?
Yes, last year I built one, it was really good fun. It looked ok for a first attempt but no-one ate it. It was more of a decoration!
❄️ WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS FOOD, SWEET OR TREAT?
I love German Lebkuchen and Stollen Cake. Christmas time is the only time I eat them and they are so good! I also really enjoy mulled Wine, I had my first glass last night and it was delicious; I’ve had some awful mulled wines, including ones I’ve made myself, but this was the nicest one so far. Practice makes perfect!
❄️ DO YOU LIKE TO STAY IN YOUR PJ’S OR DRESS UP FOR CHRISTMAS DAY?
Well, I’ve always had to dress up as growing up we used to go to my Aunts for Dinner. I don’t think rocking up in my PJs would have gone down so well. I guess it’s just stuck with me. Besides I feel a bit more human once I’m dressed and put a bit of makeup on.
❄️ ARE YOU A PRO-PRESENT WRAPPER OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY?
I like to think I’m a pro present wrapper but sometimes I fail. Square presents look amazing, but give me another shape and I usually fail miserably. I love all my presents to match and have a nice ribbon that compliments my paper.
❄️ WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SMELL?
Easy, Gingerbread! I love any Gingerbread smell, it can be Candles, Cookies, hand cream, a diffuser, you name it, I love it! If I could describe Christmas in a smell, Gingerbread would be it.
Hope you enjoyed my post.
