I came across this tag on the fabulous Glamour Glitter Gloss blog (check it out here) and knew I had to take part straight away, if only to get myself in the festive spirit with Christmas just around the corner. So here goes…..
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I have always had a real Christmas tree, you just cant beat that smell! I have a tree I bought about three years ago that a potted and bring in every year……we called him Jeffrey…..as you do.
2. You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?
I am not a fan of coffee so I would have to say a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.
3. What’s your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
Last year we decorated Jeffrey in really old painted glass baubles that belonged to my grandparents. The look was so vintage and it looked great when we were finished that I think I will do the same again this year.
4. Giving or receiving?
I would be lying if I said I didn’t love receiving gifts but I think when you get someone something they have always wanted then the look on their face is priceless.
5. To mince pie or not to?
Definitely mince pie……don’t forget to leave one out for Santa either.
6. What’s your traditional Sunday lunch?
Generally either lamb, chicken or pork….I like to keep turkey for Christmas. You can forget all the trimmings though, and a nice thick gravy! Ooooo and yorkshires……
7. Christmas day fashion?
I would love to say that I dress up but as I am always the one that cooks Christmas dinner it’s just not practical. If I was going elsewhere then I would definitely make more effort.
8. What’s your favourite Christmas song?
Santa Baby or All I Want For Christmas or Santa Claus is Coming to Town…..yes I sang them while I typed it out.
9. What’s your favourite Christmas film?
Every year me and my sister always watch Love Actually, it has become some kind of tradition and it always makes me feel quite festive.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
Generally before, who are the weirdos that wait all day?? As soon as my sister comes over we are under the tree dividing up everyone’s presents.
I am inviting you all to take part in the Christmas Tag, if you do then be sure to let me know!x
