Christmas and New Year

The Christmas Tag 2016

I was tagged by Amy from The Smallest of Things to join in with the Christmas Tag!

What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

Its all about Miracle of 34th Street for me… andLove Actually, Elf, and Home Alone, and Polar Express… I ave a few Christmas Movie Faves

Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I vaguely remember one from when I was little…

Where do you usually spend your holiday?
We go to T’s mums Christmas Eve to see his sister and our nephews. Then we go home, go back on Christmas Day for Christmas Dinner then back home for the night. Then we go to my parents on Boxing Day and spend the night there but its the last year we’ll be doing that this year as I don’t want to leave the house on Christmas Day from next year… I want a family Christmas Day at home

What is your favourite Christmas song?
I’m not sure. I love Slade but I’m fond of Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas… that might be because of Love Actually though…

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Nope, but I give Spike PJs, a Christmas Book and a Christmas bear

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
hmmm… lets see, Dancer, Dasher, Comet, Cupid, Donna, Blitzen… is that it?

Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
I’m going to sprinkle ‘Reindeer food’ on the front garden and hopefully carry that on until Spike’s too old to care anymore! lol

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake… I used to have a white one but I was made to change it to green last year because T said that it wasn’t family friendly.

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
Rum Truffles… oh Rum Truffles… but any food to be honest!

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
Giving… I love seeing peoples reactions to what I give them

What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
Oh, I’m not sure! I can’t remember a lot of what I’ve got over the years which sounds terrible and ungrateful. But my memory is shocking. I loved last years pressie of T because it was so unexpected, but it wasn’t an out of this world present and its too sad to say what it is! Haha

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Honestly I’m not sure. I’d love to visit New York and Disneyland at this time of year but I’d rather spend Christmas actually at home!

Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I’m terrible at it… Honestly. The worst you’ve ever seen!

Most memorable Christmas moment?
I have a distinct memory of singing Christmas songs outside my parents bedroom door one year when I was little to try and wake them up so we could go see what Santa had left… but I don’t know if thats just a made up memory!

What made you realise the truth about santa?
I watched my parents take the toys downstairs one year!

What makes the holidays special for you?
Spending time with friends and family and seeing Spike’s reaction to everything that she sees this year, its amazing 🙂

So there you have The Christmas Tag. I tag Fee in this post!
