The Christmas Tag

I believe that this tag originated from Make Up Pixie3 but I have seen it on Just Me Leah and Natty Nikki too so I thought I would have a go myself.

1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
We have never had a real Christmas tree, mostly for the reasons that we have dogs who would probably injure themselves on the needles and also, they make such a mess!  (The needles, not the dogs)

2.You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
My regular coffee shop buy is a latte with an extra shot of espresso but when it comes to Christmas time I like to add a touch of either gingerbread syrup or roasted hazelnut. 

3.Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I like reds and blues with silver tinsel.  To be honest it just depends on what comes out of the decorations boxes when we bring them out each year.

4.Giving or receiving?
I love to receive presents of course, but when I have planned and prepared for a present that I know someone will love, seeing their reaction is the best thing.

5.To mince pie or not?
I don’t not like them, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find one.

6. What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
I’m not a fan of the whole traditional Sunday lunch.  I’m not a huge meat eater and would prefer a bowl of pasta if I’m honest.

7. Christmas Day Fashion
For everyone opening presents I am still in my pajamas with a fluffy dressing gown.  Later on we usually have at least one or two people round for food and drinks so I like to put a dress on.  By 10.00pm though you will usually find me back in my PJs.

8.What's your favourite Christmas song?
Like Nikki, my absolute favourite Christmas song is All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey.  It always brings me into the Christmas spirit.

9.What's your favourite Christmas film?
The Snowman.  Every year, without fail.  I was nearly in tears last year because I couldn’t see it in the TV listings, but found it at the last minute.  If you don’t love that programme, you have no soul.

10. Open presents before or after lunch
Usually before lunch but always after my mum has been round to my sister’s.

  1. Ah it wouldn't be Christmas without watching The Snowman! I even have the DVD now (haha!). It was on every Christmas Eve when I was growing up, and when I saw it I got that magical Christmas Eve feeling knowing Christmas was just a few hours away. (Definitely brings that nostalgia whenever I see it now). I was always distraught if we missed it due to a family get together! xx


Thank you very much for commenting. I may not reply to them all but I read every one and it is very much appreciated.
