The Christmas Tag

Hello everybody,

As it's December 1st tomorrow, I thought I would start the Christmas season off right, by doing the Christmas Tag!  Hopefully you find this fun and interesting to read, leave me a comment of your answers to the questions below :). 


1. What is your favourite Christmas film? 

My favourite Christmas film either has to be Home Alone (1+2) or Elf. 

2) Have you ever had a white Christmas?  

I have had one as I can remember, about 8 years ago in snowed Christmas eve and I remember waking up to snow.  But we haven't had one since.  Where I live we mostly have our snow in Jan or Feb. 

3) Where do you usually spend your holiday? 

Always always at home, I don't really like Christmas day to change, I love tradition.  So we always have Christmas dinner at my house and my grandparents come up as well :).  Boxing day is usually when we go see the rest of the family.  

4) What is your favourite Christmas song? 

Awhh there are so many I love, my top three are probably:  All I want for Christmas - Mariah Carey, Fairytale of New York - The Pogues and Oh I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard "It's CHRISTMASSSSS" 

5) Do you open any presents of Christmas Eve? 

I always get some new PJs and my mum and dad wrap them up for me to open.  When I was younger each Christmas Eve I would get a new teddy as well.  Sadly that stopped when I got to about 15 hehehe.  For some strange reason they thought I was too old, and had too many Teddy's.  Pfft, don't know where that crazy idea came from :').

6) Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? 

Ohhh ermmm well there is, Prancer, Dancer, Dasher, Blitzen, Comet and ermm... Rudolf haha, I don't think he counts does he... so I guess I can't name they all. 

7) What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

I love putting the christmas decorations up, eating the first Mince Pie of the year and having a glass of Bucks Fizz.  Decorating the Christmas tree is my speciality.  I also can't wait to go Christmas shopping for peoples presents.  

8) Is your Christmas tree real or fake?  

Fake, it has white snow on the end of it hehe.  

9) What is your all time favourite holiday food/sweet? 

I do love a good Mince Pie, and I love love love Christmas dinner, stuffing, gravy, turkey <333 hashtag treats! hehe. 

10) Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better? 

Ooo that's hard.  I love getting presents of course but I really love watching my family and friends open a present I got them, when you know you put a lot of thought it in the present and when their face lights up, it's just great!. 

Me, Christmas 2004... OMG, this was 10 years ago! :O.  (Sorry, just has the realisation hehe). 

11) What is the best Christmas gift you've ever received?  

Honestly I couldn't say, my family and friends know me so well so each year I always do well, and I am always very thankful.  

12) What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? 

100%, hands down, no question about it... NEW YORK!!  I dream so badly of going to New York for Christmas and New Year.  Even both of my favourite Christmas films are set in NY hehe.  I think my mum and I and possibly my Nana are going to New York when I am 21. 

13) Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?

I am a pro-present wrapper (it did take years of practice though hehe).  However, I am only good when I go at my own pace.  I can't do it quick at all. 

14) Most memorable Holiday moment?  

When I was about eight, my mum and dad woke me up at about 3:00am, and surprised me with a trip to the North Pole to go find the real Father Christmas.  When I was little this was the most amazing thing that could have happened, we rid Husky dogs, reindeer (and an Elf told me my one was Rudolf hehe).  It was amazing. 

Me and my large Snowman hehe.

Awhh that pout dough hehe.  Ski time ^_^.

15) What made you realise the truth about Santa?  

What do you mean? :/  Santa is real, pfft.  Stupid question.  

16) Do you make New Years resolutions?  Do you stick to them?  

Yes and no haha. 

17) What makes the holidays special for you?  

Honestly I just love this whole time of year Halloween, My birthday and Christmas.  Autumn/Winter is just full of so much joy for me :). 

I hope you enjoyed this post, please leave your response below, I would love to read your answers.

Speak soon,
