The Christmas Tag


Thank you to Katie from Living Life Our Way for tagging me in this! I love Christmas and anything festive so this tag is right up my street. I’m not going to bother tagging anyone else as I’ve probably left it too late for anyone to do it now, but if you do want to join in then please feel free.

What is your favourite Christmas movie?

Love Actually. I think it’s probably my favourite film of all time. It’s soppy and Christmassy, what more could you want?

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Not that I can remember, no.

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

We always spend Christmas Day at my mums.

What is your favourite Christmas song?

I used to love Christmas songs but I have to admit I’ve gone off them a bit recently. I’d probably say The Pogues – Fairytale of New York. Also love East 17 – Stay Another Day as it reminds me of being a kid.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

We usually give the kids PJ’s on Christmas eve and sometimes me and my husband will get each other a pair too but that’s it.

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeers?

Donna, Blitzer, Comet, Cupid, Rudolph… Nope, I can’t! Off to google now…

Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?

All of it really! Opening present, Christmas dinner. But what I am not looking forward to is the mess afterwards.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Real. We’ve had a real one for the past couple of years and wouldn’t have it any other way now. I love going and picking our tree, it’s become a lovely little family tradition.

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?

Oh gosh that’s a tough one. I’ll have to say Christmas cake and Baileys, yum!

Be honest, do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

Honestly, both. I love seeing the children’s faces when they open that present they’ve been so desperate for, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like receiving gifts.

What is the best Christmas present you ever received?

An engagement ring. My husband proposed on Christmas morning 2010.

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

I’d like to visit Lapland but I’d also love to take the kids to Disney Land at Christmas time. Me and my husband have been a couple of times around Christmas and it’s just amazing.

Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I wouldn’t say I fail miserably but I’m not the best wrapper either. My husband is far better at wrapping than me, much neater, so I get him to do most of it!

Most memorable Christmas moment?

Each year the most memorable moment is the kids faces when they walk into the living room in the morning and see all the presents.

What made you realise the truth about Santa?

What? What truth? He is real, right?

What makes the holidays special for you?

Being with family, without a doubt.


Thanks for reading.
