Wow blogmas is still doing, I couldn’t imagine doing actual blogmas or vlogmas in which you blog every day that is just way too much especially around this time of year you want to see friends and family, managing Christmas shopping and work. It is definitely a thing more for full time blogger or if you balance it with a job and family I simply admire you beyond belief. So today I thought I would do something a little more fun and do ‘The Christmas Tag’, which first circulated a few years back and if you want to do this one yourself then go ahead it’s so much fun.
What is your favourite Christmas film? I’m honestly not much of a film watcher really, and sometimes I find Christmas rom-coms tacky. Personally I find that I love watching family films around Christmas, as the baby of the family at 21 it is still fun to all sit down and watch Toy Story or Ice Age as a family.
Have you ever had a ‘White Christmas’? Kinda, when I was younger it had snowed in the week leading up to Christmas so there was still snow around although it was more of solid icy snow rather than nice fresh snow. There has never been an official white Christmas while I have been alive although as in the UK for if to be a white Christmas snow has to fall on a certain building in London.
Where do you usually spend your holiday? At my parents’ house, we live a distance from the rest of our family so we usually spend it as the 4 of us in a low key Christmas thing.
What is your favourite Christmas Song? Oh god I’m so not a Christmas person, and I really don’t enjoy Christmas song person. Maybe it’s the 4 years I worked in retail when from November you’d spend all day listening to Christmas songs.
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve? No we don’t, although I’ve always thought the getting new PJs thing was super cute.
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? Vixen, Dancer, Prancer, Dixen and Rudolph, so no my mum is great at this.
What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year? We don’t have many traditions, every Christmas day is the same but there isn’t really a huge amount of tradition. Although I always enjoy our customary post-Christmas Dinner walk, after eating too much it’s nice to be out in the quiet fresh air and we often walk around a nature reserve near us and made dad won’t drink until later so he can drive.
Is your Christmas Tree real or fake? Fake.
What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat? Mince Pies, hot or cold they are delicious. Especially hot out of the oven with a touch of cream absolutely delicious.
Be honest: do you like giving or receiving gifts better? Giving them, as you get older gifts are more practical and like this year I’m getting a Satnav, it’s hard to get excited about a sat nav.
What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received? The first Christmas I was with my boyfriend he managed to get Warped Tour UK tickets, the event had sold out months previous and I was desperate to go. Less than a month together he surprised me with tickets which they had managed to get spares due to a friend’s press connections, it was amazing day and an amazing gift.
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? I don’t ski and probably won’t ever try it buy I would love to spend it in the French Alps. A cute little chalet surrounded by snow, the Alps are pretty in the summer they’ll be stunning in the Winter.
Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? Probably half way in between, I always attempt and usually manage super cute wrapping little bows and ribbon etc.
Most memorable Holiday moment? Oh god I don’t really know, although I don’t remember a strong Christmas memory on the millennium when visiting family in Yorkshire I remember driving up onto heath land and seeing the fireworks over the town in the valley.
What made you realise the truth about Santa? I’m not sure I think I was 5/6 and I just knew, it was never a big deal Santa in our house as we never got Santa gifts ever and we still get a few goofy gifts every year.
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? Do you stick to them? I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions as I know I won’t keep to them, I just strive to eat better and get healthier in general as I don’t want the pressure.
What makes the holidays special for you? I just enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, eating nice food and just relaxing.
So I tag any of you guys that want to do this tag, and I cannot wait to read them.
