Christmas Tag

I found this Christmas Tag over on Milk Bubble Tea and thought seeing as we only have one month till the big day, I would give it a go.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Most Christmas films get the thumbs up from me though Elf has to be my top top. 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas Day all the way!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
We went to Lapland for a day one Christmas which was awesome! Admittedly I was being sick for most of the day (little Rosie didn't really travel very well) but it was still a magical day.

4. Favourite festive food?
We don't have a regular Christmas pudding but make a chocolatey, pudding shaped fridge cake from my Gran's recipe which I LOVE. We make it together on Christmas eve and all have a go making a wish while stirring.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I get a bit confused between Christmas and Birthdays sometimes! I got a Walkman for Christmas once, that was a great day. I also got a CD/Cassette player which is bright yellow from back when CD's were a new deal. I still have it now and it works a dream.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
The food. Oh the food. 

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
We make our Christmas Pudding during the day then have a big lunch. We usually watch a Christmas film or The Snowman or Father Christmas before carving our Christmas ham and having good ham sandwiches before bed. In the last few years, we've opened our cards on Christmas Eve too.Then we get the presents out and under the tree (due to naughty cats, we have to cupboard them until the big day!) and head to bed!

8. What tops your tree?
A very old angel! As my brother and I don't live at home anymore and therefore don't put the decorations up, it falls down to us to jointly put the angel on the tree when we both get home. Then Christmas really begins!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I asked for a Pink Mini on several occassions when I turned 17. Mum gave me a miniture Pink Mini Keyring instead. How hilarious...

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
I love everything, I think it's just such a magical time. The family, the food, the decorations, the presents. 

Let me know if you give it a go, and take a look at Milk Bubble Tea, because it is a pretty awesome place.

  3. Yes to that Christmas scent!! Festive food has to be cheese and pineapple sticks!
