Tag: Ready For Christmas?

So I'm a bit stumped for blog posts for the next few days due to a lack of buying things for myself because of Christmas shopping, and now also because of a lack of camera as I have lent mine to my boyfriend so he can do his university project. So with it also being less than a week to Christmas I thought it was the perfect time to throw in this Christmas tag :) I haven't been feeling very Christmassy lately which is very unlike me :( so this is a perfect opportunity to add a bit of Christmas spirit to my blog :)

  Is this not the most amazing Christmas tree ever?! (Picture from We Heart It)

1.Whats Your Favorite Holiday Movie? 
- I love Christmas films, I always get really excited when they begin to be aired in December. I can't really choose a favourite but a few that I really enjoy are Elf, Home Alone and A Christmas Carol.
2. Whats Your Favorite Christmas Color? 
- Green. I love green and red, and green and gold combinations around Christmas time :)

3. Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?
-I like to stay in my pyjamas for a little bit in the morning but I get dressed around lunch time. I have never been one to get really dressed up on Christmas Day though.

4. If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be? 
- This is too difficult, I hate missing people out haha. I think my dad is the most deserving though, he gives so much to my family throughout the year and has been there for me through the hardest times this year.

5. Do You Open Your Present Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?
-I open my presents on Christmas Morning. When I was younger I used to open a couple on Christmas Eve because I was so excited, but I just like to wait now.

6. Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?
- I haven't, but it looks really fun and I would like to try it... I can just imagine it falling down on me though :( haha.

7. What Do You Like To Do On Your Christmas Break?
- Relax, not have to worry about a thing, get a little bit merry, spend lots of time with my boyfriend and family, and accompany my dad on his annual mad dash for Christmas presents on Christmas Eve.

8. Any Christmas Wishes?
- For everybody to be able to put whatever bad has happened to them this year behind them and have a really lovely Christmas and look forward to a fresh start in the New Year!

9. Favorite Christmas Smell?
- I love spicy cinnamon/ vanilla scented candles and the smell on Christmas Day of all the wrapping paper and Christmas Dinner cooking in the kitchen.

10. Favorite Christmas Meal Or Treat? 
- Christmas Dinner, of course, with all the trimmings. And a chocolate Yule log for dessert :)

11) What are you doing for the holidays this year?
- Just staying at home, I don't like spending Christmas abroad, I have only done it once and it doesn't feel right to me.

12) What's your favorite holiday drink?
- Bailey's hot chocolate!

13) Candy cane or Gingerbread man?
- Candy cane, I'm not the biggest fan of ginger bread, though I do enjoy cookies and biscuits more than sticks of rock.

14) What's your favorite holiday/Christmas song?

Fairytale of New York, no question about it.
15) What's the weirdest gift you've ever received?
- I don't think I've ever received a "weird" gift, but my dad used to buy me loads of those science experiment kits for kids when I was younger where you could build a water- powered rocket or grow strange plants. I think it was more so that he could play with them, he's a kid at heart and loves science haha.

What a cutie, this made me smile :) (Picture from Locked Illusions Photography)
