The Christmas Tag!

As you have probably guessed most of my blog posts are going to be Christmassy! When I saw this Christmas Tag floating around on some of my favourite blogs I knew I had to join in and share it with you guys! I hope you enjoy it and feel free to join in.

1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

I've never experienced a real Christmas tree before! My family have always had a synthetic one. I love how familiar it is and how each year we all work hard at spreading the branches perfectly before decorating it! When we get our own house I'd love to buy a real one for our first Christmas to make it extra special!

2.  You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?

I'd always choose a hot chocolate with squirty cream and marshmallows! Yummy!

3.  What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?

At the moment I am swaying towards the Nordic look. You know...lots of red and white with a little bit of gold. 

4.  Giving or receiving?

Is it cheeky if I say both?! It's so much fun finding the PERFECT gift for someone and watching their face when they open it. A priceless moment. On the other hand I find it so exciting opening presents..who doesn't? It's a lovely feeling when a special someone has chosen such a thoughtful gift for you.

5.  To mince pie or not to?

I've tried one before and it wasn't terrible but they aren't on the top of my list! Give me a little apple pie any day.

6. Christmas day fashion

I like to wear something a little special and Christmassy on the big day. It is usually something red or sparkly but it ALWAYS has to have a little stretch in it ; )

7.  What's your favourite Christmas song?

I love 'Driving Home For Christmas' by Chris Rea. Such a fab song. I enjoy most Christmas songs to be honest!

8.  What's your favourite Christmas film?

It has to be the Polar Express. We always watch it cuddled up on the sofa on Christmas Eve. I have such lovely memories of my little brother being excited for Santa to arrive. When the film finished he used to get the cookies and milk ready, checked the Santa tracker website Norad and then went off to bed. So fun!

9.  Open presents before or after lunch?

Before ! As soon as we wake up.

10.  What's your traditional Christmas lunch?

We usually have Prawn Cocktail to start. I rarely eat this so I make the most of it...definitely one of my favourites! For the main meal we have Turkey, Sausage Meat, Roast Potatoes, Stuffing, Sprouts, Broccoli, Carrots and Parsnips. Cranberry Sauce is a must! So yummy : D


I now TAG YOU!  Let me know if you do this tag as I'd love to read it : )

  2. I love reading this. We always have a real tree. My dad and I tend to go and pick them together because I always helped pick the tree when I was little. And I would always go hot chocolate too!

  3. Great list, we have always had a real tree but sometimes it's more trouble than its worth!
