Christmas Tag

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeear!

This year I feel super Christmassy for some reason, and so in order to celebrate and indulge in a bit of festive fun here is the Christmas Tag! Thank you to Lola from Lolas Little Wonders for the list of questions!

What is your favourite Christmas Movie?

Santa Claus The Movie. No question about it! It was actually the first movie that my parents saw after I was born (first trip out sans bambino). I have to watch it every year. It is the law. Otherwise the world my implode.

I am also a massive fan of The Polar Express. Oh that film gives me all the warm and fuzzies.

Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Christmas Morning durr… how can you open presents before Father Christmas has been? Silly question…

Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

Oh there are hundreds and hundreds, but generally sitting around the table with my family oh Christmas day eating dinner. Throwing Christmas cracker rubbish on the floor.

What is your favourite festive food?

My mum’s Christmas pudding! It is the best! And of course pigs in blankets.. om nom nom…

Pig in Blankets

What has been your favourite Christmas gift?

This is too hard! I always got amazing gifts. I cannot think of one alone! A few years ago my mum got to get 2 kittens, that was my favourite present she ever got 😉

What is your favourite Christmas scent?

Christmas trees. The smell of pine is lush! Mulled wine is also pretty good 😉


Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Bit of a weird one, but we have take-away curry! Nom!

What tops your Christmas Tree?

Nothing at the moment – I have bought 2 and both are too heavy for the tree! WAH!

Christmas Bauble

As a kid what was one crazy gift you always asked for but never received?

Mr Frosty. (is such fun, he makes drinks for everyone). As an adult I now realise that my mother did not want me filled with sugar ice water… probably for the best.

What is the best part about Christmas for you?

Family. Giving presents to people, I love buying presents for people and finding that perfect gift. I often go way over my budget but it is so worth it!

    Love how you added personal pictures to this post. Really got me excited for Christmas. Maybe I’ll even give this tag a go on my blog or YouTube channel!

    I need to borrow some of your festive spirit. My parents are going away to Poland this year & I feel total Christmas abandonment!
