Christmas is well and truly upon us…
I have seen this tag going around recently, so thought I would jump on the bandwagon and have a go myself. It is officially ONE WEEK until Christmas (I hear you screaming too), so it seemed like a great idea to post this today!
1. What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
The Polar Express and The Grinch! Traditional Christmas Eve movies for me, they really get you in the Christmas spirit. Sitting inside by the fire, with hot chocolate and a blanket, what is not to love?
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning, definitely! I have never opened anything on Christmas Eve! That would just be weird right?!
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I do not have a particular one as I love Christmas every year, but if I had to pick something, it would be something from when I was younger, having my Auntie, Uncle and cousins over at some point (they now live in Australia), or when we used to go to my nan and granddads house. It is this time of the year when I really miss you granddad and great gran!
4. Favourite festive food?
Pigs in Blankets of course!! They are the best thing, along with stuffing and turkey!! AMAZING! Oh and how could I forget Celebrations chocolates, it just would not be the same!
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Favourite? Wow, I cannot think….I guess getting my very first phone when I was younger was great at the time, the good old Nokia phones, and of course mine was pink and had Miffy the rabbit on the back! I was clearly the ‘cool’ kid…I guess I loved them all really, but after the past few years, the best gift is just to be healthy and be with family.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
That typical Christmas smell. Great explanation there Rachel. It is difficult to describe, I guess it’s that pine smell from a real tree!
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
I normally watch The Polar Express at around 2/3pm. Then all the family settle down after eating, phones away, just chill and then watch The Grinch before we head to bed (The Grinch tradition has been something we do every year since it was released).
8. What tops your tree?
A star! I actually do not know if we have ever had an angel? Maybe when I was younger…
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I remember wanting a big Sylvanian Family Dollhouse, which I never got, they were just too cute and I would have loved one! To be honest though, it would not surprise me if I also asked for a horse at some point, likely seriously though, where would I keep a horse…
