What I love about Christmas is how everyone celebrates it in different ways. To give you a chance to find out a little about my traditions and my favorite things, I thought I would complete the legendary ‘Christmas Tag’. I found a few tags online Enjoy.
1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE/S?
I’m going to have to go with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. I just love how Clark wanted Christmas to go right and it went all wrong ( I can relate trying to put together a perfect Christmas). I love the scene where Margo and Todd were talking about why the carpet is wet and Todd goes ” Something had to break the window, something had to break the stereo and Margo goes and “Why is the carpet all wet Todd?” and Todd says “I don’t know Margo”. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation ALWAYS has me in stitches! Some of the other movies I love is Home Alone, comfort and joy, and cheesy Netflix romantic holiday movies.
2. DO YOU OPEN YOUR PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE OR CHRISTMAS MORNING?
I’m going to have to go with option 3; Christmas Night. I know, it’s terrible but it’s not my fault. My sister always say why rush and get all the presets over with in the morning and spend the rest of the day being bored. I think it’s just an excuse for my sister not having to deal with my excitement for the entire day. Scrooge!
3. HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
YES! It’s either snowed before or after Christmas and It’s even snowed on Christmas! I was young but I did experience it.
4. WHAT MADE YOU REALISE THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA?
What truth about Santa? That he doesn’t actually climb down your chimney? I didn’t think he did. What would happen if he got stuck, no one would have got their presents. Obviously, I’m only joking… My parents never sat me down and told me he isn’t real, I caught them putting presents under the Christmas Tree when I think I was 7 or 8.
5. CAN YOU NAME ALL OF SANTA’S REINDEER?
Rudolph, Blitzen, Dasher, Vixen, Cupid, Dancer, Prancer… NO!.
6. WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE HOLIDAY FOOD/SWEET TREAT?
Anything that’s Christmas and sweet related will do fine by me! I love anything with peppermint in.
7. BE HONEST: DO YOU LIKE GIVING GIFTS OR RECEIVING GIFTS BETTER?
As we are being honest here, I love receiving them. Giving them isn’t too far behind though! I do love when you’ve found the perfect present for someone that they weren’t expecting, and they get all excited opening it. I do love being the one to open the presents a tad more though. It doesn’t make me a bad person (all though I do get shy when all eyes are on me when It’s my turn to open presents), we all enjoy that moment too.
8. WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?
I could never imagine going anywhere warm for Christmas, but I really want to go to Disney World, Florida. I’ve been there during the summer, spring, and fall and I loved it, and I’ve seen a documentary about the Disney Christmas and it just looks so amazing. They have Christmas parades, a winter wonderland, Disney inspired food, all the shows, and performances. Can you just imagine the fireworks display!
9. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
There are so many I love but it has to be “Silent Night” by The Temptations! Other songs I love to sing along to are “All I Want for Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey, “All I want Is a real good tan” By Kenny Chesney as well as the more traditional songs such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”.
10. DO YOU MAKE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS? DO YOU STICK TO THEM?
I keep them in my head so no one knows when I’ve not stuck to them, and I tend to forget so I never feel guilty. For next year I do want to do a sort of bucket list so it’s not changed I want to make in my life, but things I want to achieve. I think that makes them pro-active so I am more likely to complete them.
11. FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SCENT?
I love the smell of peppermint, cinnamon, and roasted chestnuts. I am currently using the scent ‘Nutcracker’ by Yankee Candle which smells amazing!
12. AS A KID WHAT WAS THE ONE (CRAZY, WILD, EXTRAVAGANT) GIFT YOU ALWAYS ASKED FOR BUT NEVER RECEIVED?
I don’t really think I ever did. To be honest, I can’t really remember. I just used to ask for the standard toy that was popular that year. I think I’ve started to ask for more crazy presents as I’ve gotten older.
13. WHAT’S THE BEST PART ABOUT CHRISTMAS FOR YOU?
I’m going to have to be a complete cliche and go with spending time with my family. We don’t really do anything significant but just being in each others presence and playing games.
