The Christmas Tag // Blogmas Day Eleven

I've been excited to do the Christmas tag and it seemed fitting today, after all it is 2 weeks exactly till Christmas!

1. When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
November! That's when the build up for me starts to begin. I think about Christmas all year round for multiple reasons though. My birthday is Christmas eve, I buy in Christmas cards for the charity I work for and generally, Christmas and winter is my favourite time of the year by far. I look forward to it always!

2. Do you still have advent calenders?
Absolutely! You're never too old for an advent. My mum always sent me money to buy one because I don't live at home anymore. This year I told her to keep her money and get herself one, but I am grateful of her offer. Instead I bought myself and Brendan two Thortons chocolate calendars and I bought myself a Ciate nail varnish calendar from TKMaxx for half price - excellent!

3. What are your favourite Christmas film?
If I had to pick one, The Grinch. I just absolutely LOVE it. When I was younger I wanted to be a Whoo! I did a blogmas post on my top 5 Christmas film which you can read here.

4. Do you have any funny Christmas memories? 
I don't really have anything too funny but last year was a great Christmas. I played Cards Against Humanity with my sister and fiance. It's a brilliant game, I'd only recommend it if you've not got a sensitive sense of humor/personality. 

5. Talk us through your typical Christmas day?
You can read about my Christmas day here. As I already touched upon this in my blogmas post about traditions.

6. What do you eat for Christmas dinner?
LOTS is the snswer. We don't have turkey, chicken is a better option. Chicken, roast potatos, carrots, parsnips, brussel sprouts and so forth. I eat all the puddings going and snack of cheeselets, cheese board and anything else cheese related I can get my hand son.

7. Do you have any Christmas traditions?
I talked about my Christmas traditions here if you want to check that out.  I've had Christmas in the same house for 24 years which is absolutely magical for me.

8.What are your favourite Christmas songs?
Last Christmas and All I want for Christmas is you. And Christmas wrapping sung by the Spice Girls - guilty pleasure, don't judge me please.

9. What is the best Christmas present you've ever received?
Gosh, that's a hard one. I am so thankful for any and all. A couple of years ago I broke my iPod just before Christmas and was gutted as I used it everyday to walk to work and University. Even though my mum and sister had bought all my gifts already, they put their money together and got me a replacement. I had no idea and it was the nicest surprise. I broke it 3 years later by dropping it in the gym and getting the red cross of death. Moral of the story is don't join a gym.

10. Real of fake tree?
I've got a fake one this year and always have done. However last year for Brendan and I's first Christmas we got a real tree which was amazing!

Are you guys feeling festive yet?


  1. It's a great way to fill a gap in your blogmas calendar hahaha! Hope you're well my lovely!
