The Christmas Tag

Danielle from LilliWhiteRose recently tagged me to do The Christmas Tag. Go take a look at her blog if you don't already follow her because she's seriously amazing.

I love Christmas but I find it very hard to get into the festive spirit because I dwell on the bad things that happened during the year (and lots of other stuff that really shouldn't be thought of at such a happy time of year) but once I'm in it, I go Christmas crazy.

Hopefully this tag will help me get into the Christmas zone!

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie(s)?

The Polar Express is my favourite Christmas movie and we all watch it every Christmas Eve.
I also really love all The Santa Clause movies, Home Alone 1 and 2, Deck the Halls and The Grinch. The Snowman is a serious favourite of mine but it reduces me to the foetal position every time.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Christmas Morning!! I get up around 5am and go wake up my brothers and sister. We then have to wait an age as my dad has the key to the sitting room and he does everything super slow before we're allowed to go down and see what Santa has left us.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

I don't think I have one specific favourite memory... Almost all my Christmases were full of happiness and I just like the feeling that you get when you think back on the great times you had with each other.

4. Favourite Christmas Food?

St. Stephen's Day dinner is my favourite, my mom takes the leftovers and serves them with mash and home made chips. It's the one time of year I actually eat potato (even if that's in the form of chips). I also love Christmas Cake!

5. Favourite Christmas Gift

I've received some amazing presents over the years, all of them greatly appreciated but my very favourite gift is probably a teddy my mom got me quite a few years ago. It's a big bear holding a little baby bear and we refer to it as "me and you".

6. Favourite Christmas Scent

Cinnamon candles and pinecones.

7. Do you have any Chritsmas Eve Traditions?

We all settle down and watch The Polar Express and then bring down each others presents, leave them under the tree and leave out some treats for Santa. Then we all go up to bed and gather in one of our rooms (we alternate every year) and my dad reads us The Night Before Christmas.

8. What tops your tree?

A star

9. As a kid, what was the one extravagant gift you asked for but never got?

I don't actually remember the present but I know instead of what I asked for, Santa brought me a Barbie typewriter and I was thrilled with it.

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?

I just love being with my family. I love buying presents for everyone. I love watching everyone open their presents. I love the giddiness surrounding the whole day. It's just a wonderful feeling and I hope it will feel like that for my kids when I have a family of my own.
