The Christmas Tag

So whilst scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed the other day I came across 'The Christmas Tag' and Chic-a-DeeDee's post and thought um yes that looks like fun. I must do that too! So here we go, here's another Christmas blog post. 'Hooray!' I here you say!  With Christmas tomorrow it's probably one of the last ones I'll do until 2014, so enjoy and make the most of it! 

What is your favourite Christmas Film?
I love so many Christmas films as they're just so warm and snuggly inducing. When I was growing up my favourite was Santa Claus starring Dudley Moore, I must have watched it a gazillion times! However it's been so long since I watched it that I don't think that counts anymore, so I think my favourite Christmas film has to be Love Actually. I've seen it sooooo many times that I can recite it word for word, plus It's such a lovely sentiment and it shows London at Christmas. 

What is your favourite festive colour?
Oh that's a tricky one! I honestly love every colour at Christmas. I love the white and red combination that is so prevalent at this time of the year, but I also love the multi-coloured rainbow that is created by fairy lights and all the ornaments on our family tree. So I think I'll have to say I love all the colours that Christmas brings.

Do you open your gifts on Christmas eve or Christmas morning?
Never Christmas eve, that's just odd. We always open our stockings first thing on Christmas morning and then our Christmas presents are unwrapped around 2pm on Christmas Day after we've had the most amazing roast turkey for lunch.

What is your favourite winter fragrance?
A word burning fire, which evokes memories of snuggling on the sofa in front of the fire eating toasted tea cakes, Delicious.

What is your favourite Christmas scent?
Gingerbread and mince pies. They just scream festivities for me.

What is your favourite festive drink?
Currently it's the Starbucks Orange Mocha or a Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Blissful.

Candy canes or gingerbread men?
Gingerbread men all the way - candy canes are just too sweet and sickly in my book. 

What is your favourite Christmas song?
Nothing Beats the original Band Aid single, it's such a classic after all. 

Have you ever made a snowman?
Not at Christmas no, but yes a few times in January and February and it's always such fun!

What is most important to you about Christmas?
Spending a ridiculous amount of time with my family with nothing else to do but play board games and eat delicious food. As let's be honest when else do you get that option? Some of my other favourite things about Christmas, can be found here

So what about you? What's the most important thing to you about Christmas?

p.s. do you like all our Christmas decorations - aren't they so pretty?


  1. I loved your answers! I put peppermint in everything around christmas, I think I might have to stock up on some syrup for the rest of the year too, so tasty!

    1. Thanks! There's just something about mint at Christmas isn't there. Stocking up on it now is a good plan - I may have to do the same!
