The Christmas Tag

The lovely Lisa tagged me in this festive post and as it is Christmas soon I thought I best get answering!

1.What is your favourite Christmas Movie?
I love all the modern films like Elf, The Grinch who stole Christmas and Arthur Christmas. I never really got into Home Alone, Santa Claus the movie and all the black and white ones. When I was old enough to buy Christmas films, that's when I started to pick my favourites. My absolute favourite has to be Elf.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Definitely Christmas Morning! Who opens their presents on Christmas Eve?! I like to do it on Christmas, it feels much more special. The only presents we get on Christmas Eve are our new PJs!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I don't think I have a standalone Christmas memory really. I just enjoyed getting together with all the family at Christmas, opening presents and eating food! Our family were never the type to play games and hang around at Christmas so we always used to go home not long after food!

4. Favourite festive food?
Roasties. Do they count? Roasties are my absolute favourite on a roast dinner! I could happily eat a plate full of these with stuffing and gravy and be a very happy girl.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Again I don't think any specifically comes to mind when I think of my favourite gift. My sister and I have received some great presents over the years including lots of dolls and gaming consoles which were great at Christmas. As I get older gifts become more functional or sentimental which I like, although I would like toys....

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Can I say the Christmas Eve candle from Yankee Candles? Absolute fave! If we are talking general smells I would say like festive spices like cinnamon and ginger.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Every year whilst I lived with my parents I would get new PJs when I came out of the shower. They would appear on my bed like magic! Now we are in our own house this Christmas, we are continuing the new PJ tradition but I think we will start our own of having a snacky party tea and watching Christmas films. I can't wait!

8. What tops your tree?
Well this is the first year I've had my own tree to decorate and I've decided not to have anything topping it. I couldn't find something nice enough and I think it looks great without. Maybe next year I will find something that can go on it.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always wanted but never received?
Ooh I have no clue! Maybe a slushie maker? That isn't very extravagant though is it!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
I really like when everyone comes together to see each other for that one day out of the year. I don't often see my extended family so it is nice to see them all in one place for Christmas. P.S I also love the FOOD!


Thanks Lisa for the tag and as it is nearly Christmas I will forgo the tagging as I think I'm a bit late for it!

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!
