December! This can only mean one thing: Christmas! It's no secret that I, alongside pretty much everyone else I know, literally love Christmas so much. From the massive amounts of food and chocolate, to cosy days spent in my bed, this holiday is no doubt one of my favourites. Anyway, seeing as numerous doors of my advent calender have been ripped open, the countdown to Christmas has begun, and what's not a better time to get a little bit festive and write my Christmas tag...
Also, before I begin, thank you to the lovely Millie for collabing with me on this tag! Make sure you go and check out her gorgeous blog and Instagram too.
What's your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Without a doubt, Home Alone is my ultimate favourite movie at Christmas, especially the first one! I find these movies so light-hearted and funny, a film which all the family can sit down and enjoy. Another favourite of mine is Elf, again it is family friendly and definitely a film which I could re watch over and over again without not loving it.
Do you open presents on Christmas morning or Christmas evening?
Normally, I open any of my stocking presents first thing in the morning, followed by my 'under the tree' presents a little later in the morning/early afternoon. If I had the choice, I would open them all at once, but I guess it's kind of better having something to look forward to throughout the day!
Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I don't have a specific memory, however for the majority of my life, Christmas has been spent with my family which I love!
What's your favourite festive food?
A full roast dinner is a must for me and my family every year, not forgetting the mini sausages wrapped in bacon! Aside from lunch, I have always loved my family's breakfast gammon with freshly baked bread and butter.
What's been your favourite Christmas gift?
One of my favourite presents is my Dell laptop, which I am currently sitting writing this blog post on! On a different note, I also love my mauve sofa bed which I got given around five years ago- perfect for when my friends come to sleep!
What's your favourite Christmas scent?
Cinnamon. I love cinnamon. From candles to hot chocolate, from lattes to well, absolutely anything to be honest, cinnamon is literally the perfect scent to link me with Christmas!
Do you have a Christmas Eve tradition?
Most Christmas Eve's I just tend to spend my evenings curled up in bed, with a hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies. I also have a tradition of not being able to get much sleep on Christmas Eve- if that counts?!
What tops your tree?
Most probably a star, however we do have a cute angel which sometimes makes the top.
As a child, what was the one (crazy, extravagant) gift you wanted but never got?
I've never really wanted anything that crazy, however I did always want to be the actresses in the children's TV shows I used to watch- like Zoey 101 and H2O!
What do you think is the best part of Christmas?
Without a doubt, family-time is what Christmas is all about. Obviously, I do enjoy the presents and copious amounts of food too, but I love how everyone is in a magical mood and enjoying themselves.
I don't know about you, but after re-reading that all through I feel extremely prepared for Christmas! Quickly, I also think that the build up to Christmas is also a very exciting time, and that's all down to the advent calenders, decorations and of course Vlogmas! Seeing as this is a tag, I nominate all of you reading this to attempt to write this post, if you do let me know in the comments and I'll go and check it out.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
