T’is the season to be jolly. ‘Fa la lalala lala lala!’ Well, it’s December and I think it’s safe to say that we can Say the ‘C word’…CHRISTMAS!
So let’s start off ‘Blogmas’ with The Christmas Tag, I love taking part in these and love seeing what other people put for their answers too.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS TRADITION?
For us, it’s all about being together. On Christmas Eve we all get new pj’s, get a takeaway and watch movies while decorating gingerbread houses. We scatter our reindeer dust onto the drive and patio areas of the house. Then set up the goodies and treats for Santa. Not forgetting to put the ‘magic key’ on the front door to allow Santa to come in as we don’t have a chimney. I personally love watching the ‘magic’ unfold and how excited my boys get.
WHERE DO YOU SPEND CHRISTMAS?
We’ve always spent Christmas at home. Just myself, Matthew and our 5 boys. Then my Dad comes over for a Christmas Dinner. It’s never anything too extravagent. Again, it’s about being together and making those memories.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
Seriously, there are so many to choose from. But I have to say Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, has to up at the top of my favourite list, closely followed by Fairytale of New York by The Pogues.
TINSEL OR GARLAND?
Love it or hate it, It has to be, without a doubt – Tinsel.
MINCE PIES – LOVE OR HATE?
I have a confession to make. I only tried my first Mince pie about 5 years ago! I love them, but I can be rather picky about the brand.
IF YOU COULD BE A CHRISTMAS MOVIE CHARACTER WHO WOULD IT BE?
Oh! Now this is a tricky one. I would have to say little Susan Walker from Miracle on 34th Street. The magic and make believe makes my inner child smile.
PEPPERMINT OR GINGERBREAD?
Most definitely Peppermint. Especially Peppermint Hot Chocolate and After Eight Dinner Mints.
REAL OR FAKE TREE?
We’ve always had a fake tree. As much I would really love a real tree, I’m concerned about it dying and all of the horror stories about pine needles. I’m quite happy with my fake tree.
DO YOU HAVE AN ADVENT CALENDAR THIS YEAR?
Sadly, No! I’ve bought everyone else one except myself. Next year i’ll make a mental note to buy one for myself.
FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE?
I’m a big kid at heart and I love all the kiddies movies. The Grinch, Muppets Christmas Carol, Nativity, Nativity Rocks, Arther Christmas, The Star. I mean it is all about the kids, right?
