The Christmas Tag

I came across this tag on Milk Bubble Tea last month and since then have been really wanting to do it! I love reading this type of post, it totally lets you know more about a person. I tag anyone reading who would like to do a post on this tag, also feel free to write your answers in the comments!

My nephew Vince a few years ago, don't think he liked the hat? So cute though!

What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Oh this is hard! Is saying 3 cheating? I remember going to see The Polar Express in the cinema with my sister when I was younger and since then have loved it. Elf is also a favourite in my house at Christmas, we had it recorded on our Sky box 2 years a go and we watched it so much! Finally I have to say Home Alone, who doesnt love it?

Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
When I was younger we got to choose a present from a family member and open it Christmas Eve and then the rest on Christmas. This was always the hardest decision, I just had to choose the right one!

Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I dont however every Christmas was I was younger was majorly exciting! I am sure my mum loved me and my sisters waking her up at half 5..

Favourite festive food?
oooh, just Christmas dinner as a whole! I am a veggie so eat Quorn ham but have everything else that a roast dinner consists of. Nothing beats a yorkie pudding

Favourite Christmas gift?
I can't say that there is a favourite but 2 specific ones come to mind. My mums amazing and got me a net-book one year and an iPhone two years ago. So grateful!

Favourite Christmas scent?
Got to be cinnamon! My mum has this scent burning every winter and when I am stuck at uni it just reminds me of her

Do you have any Christmas eve traditions?
We just hang out together as a family. I have 2 sisters and both have kids so usually one set stay at my mums therefore making it so much more exciting. I love watching the kids opening presents so excitedly!

What tops your tree?
At home we have a massive over the top angel called Susan that my sister bought my mum years ago. However since all of the kids have moved out my mum has toned the decorations down, boo!

As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) you always asked for but never received?
I think that I changed my mind every year so there isn't just one!

What is the best part about Christmas for you?
Just the happy atmosphere and spending time with family, nothing beats it!


  1. Having three favorite Christmas movies is not cheating. Is there even a way to choose just one?hehe:] // ▲ ▲

  4. The Polar Express is the only Christmas movie that I have seen from start to finish and I love it! I watched The Grinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon last night for the first time and it's so cute. My hubby watched it while growing up so he said it's going to be our family tradition to watch that every Christmas. LOL!

  8. Yorkshire puddings are definitely my fave as well, along with stuffing and gravy (my mum is vege so we always have the vege versions!), so good! I like the idea of opening one pressies on Christmas eve, would have calmed me down as a child! I'm opening half my pressies on Christmas and half on boxing day this year which I am looking forward to! x
