Christmas may be over but my tree hasn't quite wilted, the fridge is still rammed and we are still off work so let's keep the Christmas spirit going and complete the Christmas Tag! I was tagged by the lovely Rachel from Tots and Tantrums and Katie from Living Life Our Way.
What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
Scrooged starring Bill Murray.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Not that I can remember but apparently there was a couple when I was little.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
We usually wake up at home then go off to one of the parents houses for Christmas dinner but a couple of years back we spent Christmas in France with my In-laws and all my Husbands family. It reminded me of being a kid as we spent lots of Christmases at a hotel in Bournemouth with my Grandparents.
What is your favourite Christmas song?
Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin' Stevens is my all time favourite but you can find my full list of top Christmas tunes here.
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Nope. Not unless we have special instructions to. For example, this year one of my best friends made my kids personalised plates to leave out for Santa and Rudolph which had to be opened on Christmas Eve,
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Vixen, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and of course Rudolph. So yes I can! Good quiz trivia knowledge...
Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
New PJ's on Xmas eve is one of my favourites. This is one of Husband's family traditions which I have happily embraced.
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Both - For the first time ever I let Husband talk me into having a real tree. Now we have moved house I wanted a tree in the front so you can see it through the window. But our living room is at the back. So we have one in each!
What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
I love pate. It is the only time of year I eat it as it is so decadent.
Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
Bit of both. I love the lead up and all the shopping though and I really love watching someone opening a gift they really love and thinking 'yes! I nailed that!'
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
I can't think of one thing but I love the gifts the kids choose for me themselves.
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I'd love to take the kids to Lapland while they are still small enough to believe in the magic.
What made you realise the truth about Santa?
I heard my parents one year. Cried myself to sleep!!!
What makes the holidays special for you?
Having time as a family with no work. Work usually calls Husband all through his holiday but everything is shut over Christmas so no disruptions!
Merry Christmas, everyone! Only 51 weeks until we do it all again! xxx
