The Christmas TAG

What songs really get you into the Christmas spirit?

The Pogues - Fairy Tale of New York
 Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas Is You
Slade - Merry Christmas
Bobby Helms - Jingle Bell Rock

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

We have never had a real tree but maybe one day I will pluck up the courage and get one.  I am just scared of the mess it might leave so this puts me off.

 You're in a Coffee Shop, it's December, what do you pick up?

Costa hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows, it is the best drink ever.

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

I would say red but just now my tree is purple and silver to match my living room

Giving or Receiving?

Well to be honest I would rather have neither.  Giving stresses me out as I hate not being able to think of an excellent present for someone so I end up racking my brain stressing myself out.  I love Christmas day with all the family; everyone is off, no work, just nice family time and turkey!

To Mince Pie or not to Mince Pie?

Not to mince pie.  As mentioned in the sweater weather tag I hate warm spices so don’t like mince pies. 

What's your traditional Christmas lunch?

We have turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, veg, stuffing and gravy.  The most wonderful meal of the year.

Christmas Day Fashion

This usually depends on what I get on Christmas Day, if I don’t get any new clothes this year then I may wear my Christmas jumper and antlers of course!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

Fairy Tale of New York

 What is your favourite Christmas Film? 

I have a few favourites I can’t pick one i'm sorry!  Home Alone, ELF and Narnia.   Home Alone I have loved since I was really young, always loved it so much.  Elf was my next favourite; I remember watching it when it first came out and instantly knew I had to watch it every Christmas and I have since then.  Now Narnia was a bit of a surprise as I had never been interested in it and then one Christmas Eve while I was wrapping presents I spotted it was starting on TV so I turned it over thinking I would just have it on in the background I soon realised after half an hour that I was hooked and for the past 3 years I have watched it on Christmas Eve.

Open presents before or after lunch?

Before, we open presents first as soon as we wake up and when I still stayed with my mum even at 25 me and my little sister would still go wake my mum and dad and all go into the living room together.

Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?

A bit of both to be honest.  I stay in my pj's for as long as possible which is usually till around 2 then I need to change but it's nice to put on all your new clothes and makeup so that is fun to.

Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?

No but this year I spotted one and went to put it in my basket but got distracted by something else :(  Next year though I will, promise!!
