Blogmas Day 8 - The Christmas Tag

I've seen several bloggers complete this tag now and so I thought I would give it a go too! It was created by the lovely Georgina at Makeup-Pixi3 so be sure to check her answers out too!

1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I've never had a real tree so would have to go with synthetic. Plus I'm not sure I could be doing with the hassle of a real one!

2.  You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
Hmm all the christmassy drinks sound so nice but I always end up just going for a standard hot chocolate!

3.  What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I love so many different colour schemes but we always have coloured fairy lights. And all our decorations are multicoloured and each one has a story behind it.

4.  Giving or receiving?
Hmm thats a tough one. I love receiving presents but I also love giving presents to see the look on the persons face!

5.  To mince pie or not to?
No! Every year I'm determined to like them and each year I don't. Who knows though, this could be the year!

6.  What's your traditional sunday lunch?
Normally it's chicken with roast potatoes, veg, gravy and yorkshires but for Christmas we usually have something like pheasant as my dad doesn't like being traditional with turkey! And then we'll have all the other trimmings like pigs in blankets, stuffing and various sauces.

7.  Christmas day fashion
We don't really have a set fashion. If it's just a small family Christmas then it's something comfy but if we have a bigger gathering then we tend to dress up. But nothing too fancy.

8.  What's your favourite Christmas song?
Ahhh this is so hard! I love so many different Christmas songs I don't actually think I can choose!

9.  What's your favourite Christmas film?
Again this is so hard. I love Elf and Home Alone but I think The Greatest Store in the World is up there. 

10.  Open presents before or after lunch?
If we're just at home then we usually open them in the morning. But if we go to family or have lots of family over then we do them later in the day. But stockings are always done first thing!

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers.

  1. Home Alone is one of my favourite Christmas films too. I've actually never heard of The Greatest Store In The World. I'll have to keep my eye out for that one if they show it on TV.


    1. I'm actually sat watching Home Alone at the moment! You definitely have to watch The Greatest Store In The World, it's amazing! X

  2. I've not watched The Greatest Store In The World, am off to try and find somewhere I can watch it.
