The Christmas Tag

Decor at the Metro Center
Hi everyone! So today I got quite a bit of networking done and I learnt a lot about running a blog thanks to AJ who runs Writer's Block and Broken Lenses. Anyway, AJ recommended that I do this tag and since I absolutely love Christmas so I'm just going to get on with it and see how it turns out. During my little blog finding frenzy I discovered Birds Words, Tea Party Designs and She Might Be Loved which I now adore so I nominate them to post this tag next.

1. What's your favourite Christmas movie/s?
I would have to say Love Actually or Home Alone 2, both very different movies but it's like a tradition to watch them at Christmas in my house. 

2. Do you open Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning! I only open my presents before then if my friends want to watch me open what they got me. 

My dad sometime near Christmas in 2008
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Not a specific one, the main thing that springs to mind is tapping on the wall so my brother would wake up and then waiting for him to wake up my sister. We never wanted to be caught being the first ones up at about 4am!

4. What's your favourite festive food?
I just love the whole of Christmas dinner, I always look forward to that the most because my mum cooks the turkey overnight so we can smell it when we wake up.

5. What's been your favourite Christmas gift?
That's a difficult one! Uh... I guess it was my first iPod, I had it for ages and the backlight broke eventually but I continued to use it. I still have it lying around in my room now. 

6. Do you have a Christmas Eve tradition?
It's a big family thing for me so I always settle in early and watch a Christmas film with my mum, dad, brother and sister. Whilst we watch it my parents prep the dinner for the next day so Christmas dinner isn't quite as stressful.

7. What tops your tree?
For years we had an awful looking golden angel to stick on top of the tree but now we just use a sparkly silver star. 

9. As a kid, what was the one (crazy, extravagent) gift you wanted but never got?

I don't think I ever really asked for something crazy or extravagant, I was one of those kids that hated writing a list but would hate it if I had nothing to open.

10. What do you think is the best part of Christmas?
I love everything festive. I love the music, the jumpers, the food... I guess if I absolutely had to choose it would be Christmas dinner. Yummy. 

Thanks for the recommendation, AJ. I really enjoyed typing this one out and I'm now really in the Christmas spirit!  


  1. I love how you did the tag too! I can't believe you open your presents on Christmas eve, that's just wrong... :-p
