The Christmas Tag

The Christmas Tag

I’ve been tagged in the Christmas Tag by Katie of Living Life Our Way.

What’s your favourite festive movie?

Die Hard! Without a doubt Die Hard! Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber is just heaven! Whilst it might not be too Christmassy it IS a Christmas movie! Otherwise I do love a bit of Elf and Home Alone. Oh and Muppets Christmas Carol.

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Yes a number of times. I grew up in the mountains of Snowdonia so we used to get snow quite often. There’s one specific Christmas I remember when we had lots of snow. It was great!

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

At home. This year we’re going to my in-laws for lunch. They only live over the road so I don’t really class it as going out. It’ll be great not to have to cook. Not that I did much cooking – hubby is in charge of the food!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

Can’t decide between Pogues – Fairytale of New York or Slade – Merry Christmas Everybody.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

No. I have started a Christmas Eve box for the girls. So they get a new Christmas jumper/pyjamas, chocolates and a toy on Christmas Eve.

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

No! Let me try… Rudolph, Dasher, Prancer, Cupid… no I can’t!

Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?

We haven’t got any traditions yet. As I said above, the Christmas Eve box is one I’m starting. That and picking a new  bauble every year.

Is your tree real or fake?

Fake and it’s black with silver glitter on the ends.

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?

Can’t beat pigs in blankets!

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?

Giving! I like thinking of what to get people. But I do like receiving as well.

What is the best Christmas present you ever received?

My dog Jimmy Jones.

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

New York! Ahhh I picture Home Alone 2! Or Lapland.

Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I can do a decent job when I try but my hubby would disagree!!

Most memorable festive moment?

Receiving the little puppy and naming him. I can clearly remember sitting on the kitchen sink choosing his name.

What made you realise the truth about Santa?

When I noticed that Santa’s writing was the same as Nain’s!!

What makes the holidays special for you?

Being home with the family, eating too much and watching festive telly!

As today is Christmas Eve I doubt whether anyone is up for doing the Christmas Tag but if you haven’t done it and want to answer please feel free to do so! Let me know if you do it so I can read your answer.

So this is me signing off for a bit of a break. I hope you all have a wonderful time full of laughter and joy.
