4th blogmas / christmas tag

by - December 04, 2016

hello and happy sunday everyone! For today's post I've answered the Christmas Tag (which I found after a google search but now I can't find the post I read so sorry if this is your tag I'm doing!)

1) What is your favourite Christmas Movie?
     Either Love Actually or The Muppets Christmas Carol!  Or maybe the Flintstones Christmas Carol..

2) Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
     We've always been a presents on Christmas Day kind of family; in the morning my mum, brother and I open our stockings but then presents often wait until after the family arrives and sometimes even until after Christmas Dinner! (The waiting is a more recent thing; I think my family have managed to fall into the very misguided belief that my brother and I are now adult enough to wait patiently..)

3) Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
     Right now the memory that has pinged into my head is last year's Christmas Day when my grandad and brother were messing with their hats and pulling silly faces..it's so simple but I laughed so much it almost hurt and the photos make me smile every time I see them.

4) Favourite festive food?
     Mince pies! Yum!

5) Favourite Christmas gift?
     I honestly don't know! I've been so priveleged and lucky over the years and I've had so many things I've adored; some are more meaningful and some are silly but I love both types of gift equally.

6) Favourite Christmas scent?
    That very specific smell once all the decoration boxes are down from the loft and are being opened to reveal everything tinsel and glitter; I can't describe it properly but it's heart-warming and cheerful and for me that smell just is Christmas!

7) Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
     We get into our pyjamas, light the fire and sit in the lounge watching films, each of us gets to pick one and it's always such a discussion but we almost always end up watching The Polar Express and one of the above mentioned Christmas Carols!  (My choice always used to be Prancer Returns but I have yet to find it on DVD.)

8) What tops your tree?
     Confession: I actually had to find up photos from Christmas last year because I couldn't remember but at my mums house it's a star and at my dads it's a Christmouse (James Bond style with a tuxedo and everything..)!  We used to have an angel at both; but one is my window sill decoration and the other was made of paper and is unfortunately retired in the box now.

9) As a kid what was the one (crazy, extravagant) thing you asked for but never recieved?
    I don't think there was anything I ever wanted that was crazy, extravagant but I do know I spent a large portion of my childhood longing for a Baby Born or a Baby Annabelle (I can still remember the advert jingles now), every single Christmas I would add the newest one to my list and every single Christmas I never got one.

10) What's the best part about Christmas for you?
    Being with my family!  My parents are divorced so on one day I see my dad and his girlfriend and the next I spend with my mum, grandparents and auntie but I just love sitting around with whoever I'm with; Christmas film or music on in the background and just being happy to be with them.

I tag you; even if you just leave me a couple of your answers in the comments I'm interested to know!
