I was tagged by the lovely Rachael from FromRachaelClaire to do the Christmas Tag. Now I’m not one to turn down the chance to write about Christmas so here it is. Don’t forget to check out Rachael’s Christmas Tag post too!
The Christmas Tag
Favourite Christmas Movie & Why?
My favourite Christmas movie is without a doubt DieHard, now I know a lot of people disagree that DieHard is not a Christmas movie, but those people are wrong. We either watch it whilst putting the tree up or on Christmas Eve (or both if hubby will let me) I also love Home Alone 1 and 2 just as much.
Top 3 Songs On Your Christmas Playlist?
Jingle bell rock – It reminds me of DieHard, do you see a theme here?
Merry Xmas Everbody – This always reminds me of my dad, he used to drink with Noddy Holder when he was younger.
Lonely this Christmas – The most depressing Christmas song ever but I love singing along to this one.
Favourite Christmas Tradition?
I love our little traditions we have on Christmas eve. We always open a small present each, eat yummy food, take a picture in front of the tree and read ’twas the night before Christmas. Christmas Eve for me is all about being together as a family, I just love it.
What Is On Your Christmas Bucket list?
Our Christmas bucket list is here if you fancy having a read.
Buddy The Elf or Ebenezer Scrooge?
Buddy The Elf, without a doubt!
Best Thing About Being A Parent At Christmas?
I love everything about being a parent at Christmas, seeing the excitement and happiness on their faces makes everything worthwhile.
What Is One Present You Asked For As A Child, But Never Received?
I can’t really remember anything specific but it was most probably animal related, in fact that hasn’t stopped I still ask for another puppy every year!
Do You Have Any Christmas Eve Traditions?
As well as the traditions I mentioned above, I’ve recently started making up a family Christmas Eve box full of goodies and of course new PJ’s.
Which Festive Beverage Tickles Your Tinsel?
Any kind of hot chocolate! I wish Costa still did the white hot chocolate, that stuff was amazing! My favourite alcoholic beverage would have to be snowballs or baileys, mmmm.
Best Present You Ever Received?
I have had some pretty decent presents over the years but I’m not sure any of them can top having a baby can they?!
Sprouts on Christmas Dinner? Yay Or Nay?
Abso-fucking-lutely not! I don’t actually like Christmas dinner, mine usually consists of a plate of pigs in blankets and stuffing!
What Is Your Ideal Christmas?
I would actually love to go away somewhere in a little wood cabin, where we could open presents in front of a roaring fire, play out in the snow and then come back in to play board games and snuggle up watching films. However as long as Christmas is spent with family I am happy.
