I was tagged by my lovely friend Emma to do the Christmas Tag so here goes…
1. What is/are your favourite Christmas movie/s?
This is harder than I thought. I like The Hoiday but thats not really a Christmas movie and the only other one that springs to mind is The Nightmare Before Christmas which I watch every Christmas.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Christmas morning. I always had to wake my Mom & Dad up before I could go downstairs. I never understood it but now I can’t wait to see Aidan’s face opening his Santa gifts when he’s older – he definitely won’t be going downstairs before me!
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
When I got older and the magic had faded my Mom would always get me a present I really wanted but hadn’t asked for (eg: iPhone, portable DVD player) but she would create a treasure hunt around the house. The year she stopped doing them I was secretly heartbroken.
4. Favourite Festive Food?
Roses! I don’t eat roses throughout the year but once Christmas hits I could have them for breakfast! (That’s roses sweets incase anyone thinks I eat flowers)
I am loving Costa’s Black Forest hot chocoate too. I blame Kerri-Ann for that!
5. Favourite Christmas Gift?
The one gift that sticks in my mind was the year I got my first ever mobile phone. Can you imagine my excitement at my Nokia 3330 when I was 12?
6. Favourite Christmas Scent?
I am currently burning Yankee Candle Christmas Eve and a Frosted Berry candle which are both lovely. However, my favourite non-candle Christmas scent is Christmas dinner cooking.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
My whole family, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, in-laws parents .. you get it.. all go for Christmas Eve dinner together and have done for as long as I can remember. For the past few years I looked forward to this day more than Christmas Day. I think this year with my own little family I will enjoy Christmas Day buckets more.
8. What tops your tree?
Ehh… nothing? I’ve been on the hunt for an angel but they all look really cheap and tacky. Aidan’s godfather just got back from America with lots of presents for A, one of which was a Santa hat saying ‘my first christmas’ so maybe I will use that to top our tree this year.
9. As a kid, what was the one gift you asked for but never received?
A pony. I asked almost ever single year but alas, I was not to have a pony.
10. What is your favourite Christmas song?
It’s a toss between ‘I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday’ and ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ they’re always playing while I’m doing Christmas shopping. They’re my sign that Christmas has started.
11. What’s the best part of Christmas for you?
For years it was Christmas Eve dinner but I think this year could be completely different.
