The christmas holiday is my favourite time of the year. Festive cheer, feeling merry (normally on gin) and sparkly lights everywhere…
So Today I am excited to be answering questions from the Christmas holiday tag.
What’s your favourite Christmas Movie?
Especially since I’ve been with Emma I have had such a soft spot for all of the Christmas movies. Emma loves them and will happily start watching them around October time. I specifically love any Christmas movie that has a bit of magical romance in.
Yep I’m one of those mushy ones.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
No. I wish! To be honest I am so jealous of places like America where it actually snows over the Christmas period. I would love a white Christmas. I bet it would feel so magical.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
The past few years my family have come over to us for Christmas Day.
This year is the first Christmas where we are spending it in our first home. My parents and brother will be here too. I can’t wait.
I don’t really think it’s about where you spend the holiday. It’s who you spend it with.
What is your favourite Christmas song?
The minute I hear the jingles of Mariah Carey.
Ohhhhhhh. I don’t want a lot for Christmas. There is just one thing I need.
It is and always has been my favourite Christmas tune.
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
We sometimes open just one present. Normally the pyjamas we have gotten each other. So we can wear them to bed and lounge around in a new cosy set for Christmas morning.
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Um no…. Rudolph is one… Dasher… Vixen… Prancer… and thats it, I cant think of who the other ones are.
What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
making home made mince pies with Emma. Then eating the lush parsley balls on Christmas Day that have been a traditional dish in her family for years. They are amazing.
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
fake. But it’s a beautiful tree. One year I would like to share the experience of having a real tree in our house though.
What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
So as I just mentioned. Em’s family dish of parsley balls have been a real treat the past few years. But I’ve always enjoyed creamed cabbage and bacon. Jamie Oliver recipe which my mum makes perfectly.
Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
Its definitely the giving during the Christmas holiday that I love the most. I love watching the persons face who is receiving the gift light up!
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
I am lucky and so very grateful to have received so many beautiful and lovely gifts throughout my life already. I will always remember my first laptop though. It was funny because 2 weeks after Christmas, my dad was trying to fix the screen and ended up breaking the whole of it, meaning it had to be replaced again within the month!
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I think Lapland or Iceland would be the top 2. But I think Id swap them for a chance to visit somewhere hot at the same time.
Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I’m one of the in between wrappers. I start of with all good intentions to have every single present wrapped to perfection. After a few presents though I seem to loose my rug with them.
Most memorable Christmas moment?
the memory of finding out we were going to Disney for the new year as children. It was such a beautiful trip. And the excitement was unreal.
What made you realise the truth about Santa?
To be honest, I knew way before me and my dad had a chat for it, but I remember my response being. ‘we have got to keep it a secret’ referring to the fact my brother way still very young.
What makes the holidays special for you?
being with my loved ones, and just enjoying our time together.
