Welcome to Day 7 of Blogmas!
Today, I wanted to do a fun little post and do a Christmas Tag! I haven’t found just one tag that I really like so I’ve combined the questions from a few that I’ve seen to get this list!
If you answer these questions too, I’d love to read your answers so make sure to leave a link to your post in the comments!
- When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
I honestly start getting excited as soon as it hits September. It starts off slow with the odd burst of excited for the holiday season then by the end of October, I’m watching Christmas films and blasting out Christmas music!
- What is your favourite Christmas film?
I really want to do a whole post on this because I love so many Christmas films, but I think I’ll have to go with Love Actually. I could watch it over and over and never get tired of it! I can’t do Christmas without watching Hugh Grant dance down the stairs!
- What is your favourite Christmas song?
I can never decide – it usually changes each year! At the moment, it’s Baby It’s Cold Outside by Michael Bublé and Idina Menzel but Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney are all time classics!
- Favourite Christmas smell?
I love spicy or cinnamon scents as they always remind me of Christmas! And the smell of a real Christmas tree, too.
- Do you have a favourite Christmas colour?
I love to wear reds and burgundy around Christmas time – it makes me feel so festive!
- Have you ever had a White Christmas?
I remember always hoping for one and I have feeling we had one when I was younger, but I don’t think it was the snowy blanket we wanted but more of a light sprinkling! It would be so lovely to have a white Christmas!
- Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
I actually have! My sister and I made it together a few years ago and it actually went pretty well! I don’t think I have a picture of it anymore, but we did manage to get it to stay together for quite a while!
- Favourite festive food?
I love a good Terry’s Chocolate Orange! Can’t do Christmas without one!
- What would be your dream place to visit for the Christmas season?
I would absolutely love to be in New York City for Christmas! I’d love for it to snow and I feel like it would look so pretty!
- Do you prefer Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I actually have no idea! Christmas Eve is so exciting because you know you still have everything to come but Christmas Day is always so happy for me! I enjoy the whole run up to Christmas but I would have to say Christmas Day.
- When does your family put up the Christmas tree and who decorates it?
We never really have a set time to do it, we just do it whenever we have a free weekend! If it was up to me, it would be up by December 1st without fail! We usually decorate it as a family with Christmas music on in the background!
- Where do you usually spend Christmas?
I usually spend Christmas with my Mum and the rest of my family but this year, I’m spending half of it at home and half of it with my boyfriend’s family which I’m quite excited for!
- When do you open your Christmas presents?
We always open ours in the morning, have a break for breakfast and finish the rest afterwards. This is how we’ve always done it and I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way!
- Do you like to stay in your pyjamas or dress up for Christmas?
We like to stay in our pyjamas for present opening, but we always get dressed up for the rest of the day. I’m sure it would be lovely to stay all cosy for Christmas day but there’s something nice about everyone making an effort and looking nice for Christmas dinner.
- What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
I think it’s the fact that I get to spend so much time with the people I love and everyone is so happy. I always feel like everyone is in high spirits whether that be in the shops or at home which makes it my most favourite time of the year.
I hope you enjoyed this post! I thought it was a bit different and quite fun! If you’ve done a Christmas tag, I would love to read it so feel free to leave a link in the comments!
