I was planning to have my own christmassy image for this tag but we haven't put out decorations up yet so for now, this will have to do! I believe this tag was created by Georgina at Makeup Pixi3 and I've seen it floating around so many blogs and decided i wanted to jump on the bandwagon. I'm normally a bit of a scrooge around Christmas but this year I've definitely felt a lot more festive than usual and dare i say it, I'm actually looking forward to Christmas!
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
We've always had a synthetic tree; although id love the whole experience of going out and picking out a real tree as i think it'd be really nice but we''ve never had a real one, so i guess its synthetic by default?
2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
I don't go to coffee shops all that often because the ones closest to me aren't exactly walking distance but i was to get one it would be either a Gingerbread Latte or a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Starbucks
3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
If I'm being honest i hate having a colour scheme for Christmas trees, i think they should be random and just christmassy but my mum always has a colour scheme, it varies a lot but i believe this year my mum is aiming for red, silver and gold!
4. Giving or receiving?
I'd be lying if i said i didn't like receiving gifts because who doesn't, but if I'm being honest i genuinely love giving the gifts. Buying presents is probably my favourite thing about Christmas and i love seeing if they like their presents too.
5. To mince pie or not to?
I don't like mince pies, i think they taste nasty - my mum and sister like them thought.
6. What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
We always have beef as not many people in my immediate family like turkey so much so we tend stick to beef and then its the usual additions like mash, roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding and veg.
7. Christmas day fashion.
I like to make an effort whilst it's Christmas but i also like to be comfortable so it's in the middle of smart and casual. Its usually a dress and tights with some boots and a comfy cardigan.
8. What's your favourite Christmas song?
I really like The Pogues - The Fairytale of New York and a bit of a random one, i like O Holy Night - i just think its a really pleasant song to listen to or is it technically a hymn? Michael Bubles album is good too so anything he sings is a winner.
9. What's your favourite Christmas film?
I love Jingle all the Way, i watch it every year and i also love the Home Alone films - to be honest i find Christmas movies really easy and nice to watch so i permanently have the Christmas movie channels on.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
We always open them first thing in the morning, i might usually be a bit of a scrooge when it comes to Christmas but even i couldn't wait that long!
I tag: anyone at all who wants to do this tag :)
Have you done this Christmas tag?
