Cracking Christmas Tag


In case you couldn't already tell, I'm pretty Christmas keen. I LOVE Christmas. I love everything about it; the food, the lead-up, the festivities, the shopping, the clothes, everything. So much so, in fact, that Nina and I decided to make our own Christmas tag. It's ten questions and we'd love it if you also took part. If you do, be sure to link us and send it to us so that we can see it!

- Weirdest family Christmas tradition?
I’m not even sure where this originated from, but my family and I all dance around the kitchen waving tissues around when The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York comes on on Christmas Day... Mum, Dad, if you're reading this, where did this even come from?! Come December 25th I can fully guarantee you this will, in fact, be happening once again. 

- It's Christmas Eve, what are you doing?
Maybe some last minute present shopping... Definitely a last minute wander around the food shops for anything else that catches our eye. The evening will be spent chilling and going to bed early ready for the big day. I do NOT understand those people who go out-out on Christmas Eve?? Why would you risk even risk being hungover on the best day of the year? Although, I can imagine that a roast dinner is just the hangover cure.

- Top 3 Christmas dinner components?
Roast potatoes
Pigs in blankets

- When do you decorate your house? November, the beginning of December, the week of Christmas?
Typically it’s the beginning of December, but I definitely consider anything earlier than that also to be more than acceptable.

- Loved and loathed Christmas songs?
I LOVE Shakin Stevens’ Merry Christmas Everyone and Elton John’s Step Into Christmas. A song I literally cannot stand is Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas - I thoroughly despise that song.

- One big present or lots of little things to open?
Definitely lots of little things... I love it when people buy lots of different things they know I’ll love rather than just one big thing that I’ve hinted that I like. That being said, if anyone wants to chuck a macbook pro/car down my chimney I certianly won't be complaining. 

- What is your favourite Christmas decoration? (Include a photo if you have one)
This year, I bought this star tealight holder from Poundland. Yep, Poundland, for a quid. And I love it. It's so minimalist and pretty, and looks lovely on my bedside table.

- Do you like to have a themed tree or one with a bit of everything?
Definitely a themed one. This year, and the last few years, we’ve had a rose gold, gold, and white themed tree and I LOVE it. It’s so so so pretty and always looks really well put together. That being said there are a few rogue baubles that we’ve collected over the years from various holidays etc that still manage to make an appearance.

- Christmas pudding: yay or nay?
That is one hell of a nay from me. Pass me anything else; syrup sponge, cheesecake, profiteroles, crumble, you name it, anything but Christmas pudding. (And Christmas cake on that note, that's also a no from me)

- What's at the top of your Christmas wishlist this year?
I mean, I’d reaaaaaaally like a puppy, but the other thing at the top of my list is pyjamas... Being a student, I spend rather a lot of my time in pjs and there is absolutely nothing better than a new set of cosy pyjamas... The other thing at the top of my list is a cracking roast dinner - my Mum always makes the best roasts but Christmas dinner is always another level. Pass me allllllll the good food please. 

I tag: Fran, Lucy, Emily, Abi, Marta, Laura, Bea, Anna and Emma.
