The Christmas Tag

Monday, 15 December 2014

The beautiful Jilly at tagged me to do the Christmas Tag so here it is! Is it weird that I'm not big on Christmas but was actually rather excited to do this post? I think I just like talking about myself.

1. What is your favourite Christmas film?

The Santa Clause! It’s usually on TV on Christmas Eve but I can't find it on the listings this year. Fortunately I have it on DVD but I'm actually a little gutted it's not on BBC1 or BBC2 this year. Christmas is ruined.

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

I think I have but I was really young and it was more than likely that awful slushy gunk.

3. Where do you usually spend the holiday?

At home with my family. My brother is in Australia this year so it’s going to be really weird!

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?

Don’t shoot me but I absolutely detest Christmas songs. They’re too cheery!

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

Nope, it’s not a tradition in my family and I’m so glad it’s not as I probably wouldn’t be able to stop opening presents.

6. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?

Erm Rudolph, Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Casserole, Coffee, Comet…how many reindeer are there again?

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to the most this year?

Putting the tree up. I usually do it by myself as I have high standards but this year I had help from my male human. He did a good job so I'm proud of him. Little things.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

We have a real one in the living room and a fake one in the dining room. I used to have my own mini fake one but it was looking a little worse for wear last year so I threw it out. I need to replace it!

9. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?

They’re not exactly traditional holiday food but I love mozzarella sticks and devour them all of Christmas day. Oh and that really gooey chocolate pudding always goes down a treat too.

10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

I like both equally. It’s nice to find the perfect present for a loved one but it’s also nice to receive a present especially when it’s a pair of Beats that your brother then borrows for the majority of Christmas.

11. What is the best Christmas gift you have ever received?

I’m really not sure. My family typically gives less presents that are more expensive as opposed to a lot of presents that are cheaper so over the years I have received some incredible gifts. I honestly can’t single out one present in particular! This question is way too hard.

12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

It’s such a cliché but New York would be my dream place. It’s obviously so hyped up and everyone I know who has been to New York around Christmas says it’s not as good as it’s depicted on TV but I still want to go for the holidays.

13. Are you a pro-present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

Oh I definitely fail miserably. I got so excited last month when I realised I had more space to wrap this year (I’ve been confined to wrapping in my small bedroom up until recently) so maybe I’ll suddenly become a pro.

14. Most memorable Holiday moment?

Last year when my dad decided to barbecue the steaks but almost set the house on fire in the process. It’s such a silly memory but it’s definitely going to be discussed by my family for years to come.

15. What made you realise the truth about Santa?

I think someone in primary school said he wasn’t real. My parents kept up the charade until 2 years ago though. They used to sign the tag on each present “Love Santa”.

16. Do you make new year's resolutions and stick to them?

I make them but I don’t keep to them. I always make unrealistic ones that I break within minutes.

17. What makes the holidays special to you?

Another cliché, family! Like I said, this year is going to be weird as my brother isn’t going to be here and my other half will be getting some rather serious test results right before Christmas so I’m not sure how this year is going to go. My dad is getting really into Christmas though which is totally out of character so it’s definitely going to be a festive one!

So that's my Christmas all rolled up into one post. Happy Christmassing.
