Hello everyone welcome back! I’m currently writing this whilst dog sitting!
Today I will be doing The Christmas Tag and I got the questions from Morgan from enthusiastblog
Without further ado, here we go!
1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
My favourite Christmas film HAS to either be Elf or Muppets Christmas Carol. I absolutely love these films and I watch both of them at least 10 times each in the lead up to Christmas
2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Being in the UK and especially North Wales, a white Christmas is inevitable and something you can never expect to see or have. However, I have had quite a few white Christmases in my 16 years and ones I can remember spending with my family having snowball fights in our old house. In March probably about two years ago now, we didn’t have a white Christmas; instead the snow held off until March and it was at least 5- 7 inches deep and my friends and I had a ball! These days, I don’t like snow and I love not having snow! (Sorry)
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home with my family, and usually do a gift swap with my friends a few days before Christmas to really get into the Christmas mood and spirit.
4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
I love listening to all Christmas songs especially Mr Michael Buble and Mariah Carey. A song I love listening to which isn’t really meant for Christmas is ‘Home’ by Michael Buble and I think its amazing.
5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Kind of is my answer! My brother and sister and I will receive a box from my mum and dad every year with a pair of pyjamas each, a box of chocolates, and a festive film for us all to watch and snuggle up.
6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comit, Blitzen…uhm… not exactly, no.
7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
I love waking up on Christmas morning and coming downstairs and being greeted by firstly, my puppy, and opening the front room door and being greeted by the swarm of Christmas presents sat on the sofa for my family and I. I love watching my family’s reactions to their presents, and this year I think I have done pretty well with their presents and I think they’re going to be a happy bunch of people.
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Its fake! We definitely would have gotten a real one, but with my dog its not exactly easy because he would definitely just be chewing it 99% of the time.
9. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?
Yule log, Matchsticks, and biscuit and cookie collections 😉
10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
I definitely love giving presents, but I also love receiving them and being grateful and happy because it definitely brings my mood up if I’m feeling crappy and I just love both of them and couldn’t decide if I had to!
11. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
Last year, I was in a pickle because I didn’t have the greatest phone (iPhone 4s) and don’t get me wrong I loved that phone and had had it for two years and used it for absolutely everything. It was my mini computer because my own computer had broke so I downloaded Microsoft Word onto that phone and that took up quite a bit of space. Because it was the year of my final GCSE’s too, I needed a new phone and a laptop but I wasn’t expecting to get both! I was absolutely over the moon and overwhelmed to high heavens but this laptop has helped me with my revision and keeping up with hobbies – such as my blogging and I absolutely adore it and I’m so so grateful.
12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I think definitely New York to see the Rockerfeller Tree (Morgan also mentions the same on her post.) Just to witness a Christmas in another big city would be absolutely incredible!
13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
Definitely fail miserably! I honestly have the worst wrapping skills in the family and I was with my friend Romy yesterday and she’s so much better at wrapping than me!
14. Most memorable Holiday moment?
I honestly don’t know! I think it has to be opening the phone and laptop last year and me crying with joy and my dad absolutely beaming!
15. What made you realise the truth about Santa?
Thankfully, I didn’t have to be told the truth. I figured it out for myself because I recognised my mum and dad’s writing and thought it was suspicious and then I have obviously grown out of believing in Santa for myself, but I still believe in him for my eight year old brother.
16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I don’t, no. Purely because of the fact that I know I won’t be able to stick to them because I make weekly goals for myself and I can hardly stick to those!
17. What makes the holidays special for you?
I think the main special thing about the holidays for me is giving presents to others and enjoying the holiday spirit with my family and friends. I love making every Christmas as special as possible!
That is it for this post! Thank you all for reading and I’ll catch you in my next!
