I am part of #TheBloggingFriends Group where we share our love of blogging and have created a great friendship.
We decided we would put together a Christmas Tag and each of us would answer the same questions.
Hope you enjoy 😊
1.What is your favourite Christmas song?
This is such a hard question but first of all I love all the Glee Christmas songs!
If those weren’t counted then I would have to say my favourite song is All I Want For Christmas Is You by Maria Carey.
2. What is your favourite Christmas film?
I don’t think I can chose a favourite Christmas film because I love so many but it would probably have to be either Home Alone 2 or 3.
Next week I am sharing my Top 5 Favourite Christmas films so wait until then to find out my top 5.
Also, it doesn’t technically count as a Christmas film but I absolutely love New Year’s Eve.
3. When do you start feeling festive?
Honestly I start feeling festive at the beginning of September when Autumn starts! Christmas is one of my favourite times of year so I want it to last as long as possible.
4. Do you prefer traditional or modern Christmas decorations?
I have started to prefer more modern Christmas decorations recently has they have started to bring out more exciting colours, especially this year as there is so much copper everywhere!
5. What is your favourite Christmas advert?
This year I was really excited for the John Lewis advert, as I am every year but this year I was surprisingly disappointed. My favourite one this year has to be the M&S ‘Mrs Clause’ advert or the Heathrow advert with the two teddy bears.
6. White, multicoloured or something completely out of the box when it comes to Christmas tree lights?
On our tree at home we always have white lights but if it was up to me I would choose multicoloured lights.
7. Have you ever been on a Christmas holiday?
If so where? If not where would you like to go?
I spend most of my Christmas holidays in Mauritius with my family. My aunt, uncle and cousins live in Australia and we only get to see them once a year at Christmas so we meet them halfway in Mauritius, which is absolutely incredible.
8. Do you prefer going out or staying in at Christmas?
I prefer staying in at Christmas and spending time with my family but when we are on holiday we go out in the evening for dinner.
9. When did you stop believing in Santa?
I can’t actually remember when I stopped believing in Santa but I had to keep pretending I believed for my younger brother.
10. What is your favourite thing to do to get you in the Christmas spirit?
Watch a Christmas film or listen to my Christmas playlist.
This year I am having my friends round to watch a Christmas film and I can’t wait as I know it will put me in a such a happy, festive mood.
11. When do you put your Christmas decorations up?
I started putting up ones in my room at the end of October and beginning of November but we don’t put up proper Christmas decorations in our house and our Christmas tree until the beginning of December.
12. Basic or patterned wrapping paper? Or give bags because #GirlHasNoTimeToBeWrapping
I love patterned wrapping paper and I would chose pretty paper over bags because I actually really enjoy wrapping presents and making them look pretty.
13. What is your favourite winter tipple?
I’m not 18 yet so I can’t drink any alcoholic drinks but this year I have been loving the Gingerbread Latte at Costa – I’m not a big coffee lover so I have it quite weak but it is so yummy.
14. What is your favourite winter smell?
My favourite winter smell would have to be the orangey, cinnamon scent you get around Christmas time – whenever I smell it it instantly makes me feel cosy and happy and in the festive spirit.
The White Company ‘Winter’ candle is the perfect Christmas smell and I love it so much!
15. What has been your favourite Christmas so far and why?
My favourite Christmas so far would have to be when my grandpa spent Christmas with us as we don’t get to see him that much so it was so lovely to spend time with him and see him so happy.
16. What is your favourite Christmas food?
Apart from a Christmas dinner my favourite Christmas food would have to either be gingerbread or mince pies. I am a sucker for anything sweet so any sweet Christmassy treat draws me in right away!
17. What’s your favourite part of Christmas dinner?
My favourite part of the Christmas would have to be pigs in blankets but I also love turkey. Christmas dinner has to be my all time favourite roast dinner.
18. What is your most treasured Christmas memory?
My most treasured Christmas memory was when my other uncle and cousin came with us on holiday but the rest of my family didn’t know so it was a great surprise! The look on their faces when they saw each other was priceless!
19. Did you ever look for your presents before Christmas to see what your parent’s had stashed away for you?
I always used to try and find my presents before Christmas but never really succeeded. I am also really bad though because when packages arrive in the post I always try and guess where they are from and if they are Christmas presents.
20. Online, high-street shipping or handmade?
I always prefer online shopping as I find it so much easier, especially for finding presents for other people but I do love Christmas shopping on the high street sometimes as well because everything looks so beautiful at Christmas – one shop I love going into at Christmas is John Lewis as everything looks so pretty and festive.
I hope you enjoyed hearing what I love about Christmas.
