So I tagged myself as i LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! Nothing wrong with that right? Lets get festive...
What's your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Muppet's Christmas carol and The Grinch...both childish choices, but hey they make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy :)
Do you open presents on Christmas morning or Christmas evening?
Morning- however i have always wished my family would do table presents when we eat dinner too- like a little secret Santa type gig....maybe I'll do this when i have my own family one day.
Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Yes- I don't remember how old i was- but for some strange reason i decided to "sleep over" in my brothers room on Xmas eve..why do siblings do this..its across the hall lol! We woke up (obvs hearing the parents rustling about) my dad came upstairs and told us if we didn't go back to sleep Santa wouldn't come...he told us to listen for the sleigh bells....we both fell asleep after listening for what seemed like forever lol!
Also being a child of the 80's that smell of tinsel as you opended the lounge door will never leave me ;)
What's your favourite festive food?
Stuffing balls, cheeselets and Cadburys roses! Im not a huge Christmas food lover....now Easter -that's a different story...give me alllll of the mini eggs!
What's your favourite Christmas scent?
As mentioned above, tinsel lol and cinnamon. I also love the Yankee candle Red apple wreath. I cant bear the sickly sweet candle scents like Christmas cookie and nutmeg- yick!!!!
Do you have a Christmas Eve tradition?
Id love to say yes, however as a family we are just not that close :( i wish we could be but one day with my own little family i will make Christmas eve a huge deal. when i used to work Christmas eve in a beauty salon we used to all go to the pub to get lots of goodies, exchange our secret Santa and share out our tips- those were fun times :).
What tops your tree?
A standard star...
As a child, what was the one (crazy, extravagant) gift you wanted but never got?
I remember these vividly as i always thought Santa had let me down lol...now it was quite clear i was just being an extravagant bratty child lol...I desperately wanted the Easy-bake cupcake oven...i find it funny that now im massively into baking...see mum i did REALLY want this!
I also remember yearning for a Mr frosty and being hideously disappointed when we got it and in essence it was crushed ice and ribena :(
What do you think is the best part of Christmas?
I love the lights and the markets...it just makes it feel magical. The films transport you to a little happy place also :)
