Sorry for the lack of posting recently guys but I’m back with (of course) a Christmas post! I’ve been listening to non stop Christmas music, wearing my garish Christmas clothes and earrings and I couldn’t be more happier! I wasn’t tagged for this but wanted to do it anyway, I want all you guys to join in, I love reading these. Lets get stuck in!
1. What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
Oh I have so many! The Santa Clause, Polar Express and The Grinch have to be up there! And Gremlins! I think this film gets so underplayed nowadays! Also, I do love watching Harry Potter this time of year!
2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I think a few years back in England we had one but I don’t remember it and I don’t even know if that’s true. In the 24 years I’ve been alive I probably have but I don’t remember it! Fingers crossed for this year.
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
We travel between families. With having a kid, everybody wants to see them on Christmas day (and he wants to see everybody) so it’s usually a manic day for us until night, when we finally come home and relax.
4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
This changes year to year! This year I’m loving Michael Buble The Christmas Song, last year it was Cliff Richard Mistletoe and Wine so it varies depending on my mood.
5. Do you open any presents on Christmas eve?
We do! Only the one before Riley goes to bed just to get us all even more excited for Christmas morning!
6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Rudolph, comet, cupid, dasher and that’s it haha. So no!
7. What holiday traditions are you most looking forward to this year?
I don’t really have any to be honest, I’m just excited for my little lad to open his presents! As tiring as it is, I’m so excited to see all the families and just have a nice happy Christmas together.
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake, I decorate too early to be able to have a real one!
9. What is your all time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?
Anything with chocolate. I’m not a huge fan of the Christmas dinner itself (to me it’s just a glorified Sunday dinner), so I tend to gorge on chocolates and puddings! I am however looking forward to a Baily’s coffee which I’ve been craving like mad recently!
10. Be Honest, Do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Both! My favourite thing is going out Christmas shopping in the cold weather, I look forward to it every single year but after that when it comes to swapping gifts, I do love receiving them!
11. What’s the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
Last year my fella booked us into a gorgeous B&B for the night and it was amazing!
12. What would be your dream place to visit during the holiday season?
New York. That’s been a dream of mine to be there during Christmas since I was a teen. Maybe when the little lad is a bit older we’ll do it!
13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I fail miserably. I do try my best when it comes to wrapping but I just can’t seem to get it!
14. Most memorable Holiday moment?
Last year me and my fella split just after my birthday (4th Dec). But we worked it out and got back together before Christmas (although living apart). Then he booked us this gorgeous little B&B as a surprise (as mentioned above). We were engaged before the split but hadn’t put my ring back on since getting back together. Having breakfast at the B&B, there was Michael Buble playing in the background, the place all decorated for Christmas and the owner walks in with flowers and then he gets on one knee and proposes. Our little lad was there and it was just perfection, by far my favourite memory!
15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I never remember how I found out that Santa wasn’t real, in all honesty I think I blocked it from my memory!
16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I do but I have never stuck to one so in all honesty I give up with them haha. I just want me and my family to have a healthy, happy year so stuff the resolutions, don’t think I’ll be making any.
17. What makes the holidays special for you?
Being with my lad and fella. Obviously I love being with everybody else but these two are my family and as long as I’m with them, I’m more than happy.
And that’s the Christmas tag! This has got me feeling even more festive! I want everyone to give it a go, I’d really love to read them all!
