Day 16: The Christmas Tag!

I was a bit stuck for ideas on what to do today, so I thought I would do a Christmas tag so you can get to know a little bit more about my Christmas experience?

What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Home Alone all the way, it is so clever and amazing, I can't watch it without laughing. It never fails to get me in the festive spirit.

Do you open your present on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning every year, my family and I sort of have a routine so that is nice. We open our presents in the morning and then play with them during the afternoon. I like to spend Christmas Eve giving presents to my more distant family.

Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I actually got my first phone for Christmas one year, and I was so grateful, I cried. The same year my brother got a gold chain necklace which he wanted for so long and I remember just sitting there with my brother and both of us crying because we were so grateful and happy.

Favourite festive food?
Pigs in blankets, they are so good. I try to sneak in a cheeky roast turkey throughout the year but it does just taste better on Christmas day. I love them with salt and stuffing, I just love them they are amazing.

Favourite Christmas gift?
I honestly cannot pick one, obviously at the time when I got my first phone I was so happy so I would have to say that present, just because I loved it with all of my life, it was like my own child.

Favourite Christmas scent?
I love love love snow fairy from Lush, I don't feel as though it is that Christmassy because it is quite sweet but I love it anyway. The scent does remind me of Christmas though because I only use it at around this time of year. It is so sweet in scent, a little like bubblegum at the formulation itself is beautiful, it stinks out my whole bathroom and skin but I love it so it is okay.

Do you have any Christmas eve traditions?
Not really, but every year me and my brother drive around and deliver the presents to all of my aunties, uncles and cousins.

What tops your tree?
Nothing actually because we don't decorate our tree anymore. Our tree has built in lights and the branches are not long enough for baubles so we don't actually decorate our tree. There is nothing on top of our tree apart from lights sadly, but we did take that sacrifice after getting dogs.

As a kid what was the one crazy gift you always asked for but never received?
I honestly can't think of one, I was very lucky enough as a kid to get most things I asked for so there was nothing that crazy I wanted but never got.

What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Just spending time with my family is enough for me, I love my family and I feel like it is one of the only days during the year when we actually spend the whole day together which is just really nice to do.

Leave your answers to the questions in the comments or send me the link to your Christmas tag.

  1. What a fun tag! I haven't seen Home Alone in ages but I used to love it.

  2. I am planning to do the Christmas tag later in the month but I loved reading all of your answers and I agree, turkey does taste better on Christmas day xx
